send over sunshine

Happy Friday morning! Woohoo...I'm so glad the weekend is almost here!

Awhile back I showed you guys a card I made for a one on one swap that I am in to bring sunshine into each others lives during a gloomy spring here. Anyway, I finally finished my gift for my SOS sister. I made her a "from the desk of" ensemble. It includes this wonderful holder (template from PTI), four cards with envelopes, some flower seeds, a band aid tin (with stamps and address labels inside), and some of those wonderful, new gourmet M&M's.

Most of the supplies I used are from Papertrey Ink except the letters for the name plate. For that I used a Just Rite stamper. Oh, and the flowers wrapping around the ribbon are from SU!'s Filigree brads set.

The card set includes four cards that look just like the card you see here but all have different sentiments.

I truly hope that my SOS sister likes this! I hope you will stop back tomorrow. I have a pretty card to show you that I, unfortunately, had to make for a friend who just lost a family member. I actually have two more sympathy cards to make today as well as plan a little Mother's Day card for an impromptu class tonight. Yikes!

So...you all have a super Friday! See you later! *Yay...my box got a shout out on Susanna Boyd's blog today. Exciting!*
