Surprise gift for a Crafting Friend.....

Well, what a lovely sunny morning it is today.... what a shame I will be at work all day.

Anyway, I hope you all had a relaxing Bank Holiday weekend... I managed some crafting, spent time with family and also had some "ME" time which I don't get that often so it was all the nicer!

On Saturday, Sandie Brain, a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator from the same team I'm in came over to spend the day crafting with me. We always have a great day and this one was no exception! So I saw a gift for her a while back and decided I needed to make something to put it in..... come and have a look at what I did.

It needed to be sturdy and strong... so I reached for the Natural Composition Specialty Paper (It's more like card stock) and then I knew it had to have some pink on it as the lady in question LURVES pink!!! And it also had to be sparkly....
I did a whole lot of measuring the present to work out how big, wide and tall the box had to be, and it fitted perfectly - phew!
I wanted a simple sentiment... nothing soppy or OTT (over the top!) and I love this stamp set called Occasions Alphabet, it's one of my "go to" sets.
Here is a close up of the sparkles and the tag.
And here is what caused all this.... the gift!

The chocolate was a must and the mug saying is sooooo her, and she howled with laughter when she opened the present and gave me permission to share it with you all today! Thanks for a great day of crafting Sandie...
