Birthday Gift

Good Saturday morning everyone! Today I have a birthday gift I'd like to show you. I saw on Michelle Wooderson's blog the gift that she made for a friend of hers and decided that my friend would like something like that. Funny side note...the cup and plate are the same manufacturer, although I didn't know that until I bought them. Great minds I guess.

I'm going to guess this is pretty self explanatory for you. The sentiment on the front is not what I had wanted but the stamp I waited and waited for came the day after my cut off date to finish this up. That is always how it works, huh?

The stamping products I used from Stampin' Up! are Soft Suede, More Mustard, and Autumn Traditions DSP. I also used some Soft Suede polka dot ribbon. The gift inside the cup contains two tea bags and two more pieces of the candy. Inside the Top Note gift card holder is a Starbucks gift card for her traveling tea needs. I used sentiments from On Your Birthday to complete the gift set. You can see (almost) all of the products I used HERE.

I do have to say that I will probably make more of these gift sets as I think they are something I'd enjoy getting. I will start to look for special mugs and salad plates (they are just a little larger to have tea/coffee on and a snack or two) so to make the gift set itself a little more unique.

That is it for today ladies. My posting over the next week or two will be a little more sporadic as I craft to fill both the next couple of weeks and for while I'm on vacation. Please be patient with me.

Have a super Saturday everyone!
