Blessings

Hey, all! It's Tuesday, and I'm SUPER excited because tonight's the season premiere of Glee! Any other Gleeks out there? I'm seriously considering dressing as Sue Sylvester for Halloween this year!

I've got a little gift/card combo to share with you today. I played along with Caardvarks Clean & Simple Challenge AND the Embellish Paper Piecing Color Challenge...the colors were so fabulous, I just couldn't resist! I really love the way the paper pieced greens & yellow look against the kraft background, don't you?

I ended up liking my card so much, I wanted to put together a matching gift. So I dug this candle out of my gift drawer (do you have one of those, too?) and spruced it up with cardstock, stamps, and some ribbon. I think it'll make a sweet gift for a co-worker of mine.

I'd love to know what YOU think!

Stamps: All Natural (SU), Signature Greetings (PTI)
Paper: Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Lemon Tart, PTI kraft
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: Nestabilities circles, PTI ribbon, candle
