A little gift

This week at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge the theme is Gifts. I kept it super simple and made a few little 'candy wrappers' with a little giftcard. This is the story ~ my daughter went on a week-long school excursion to Canberra, by bus. She took some spending money with her, but I didn't want her to spend it all on snacks, so I sent along a little care package of her favourite muesli bars. I wrapped them individually, and gave her two for the first part of the trip, and I hid the rest in her suitcase so she would find them later (and not eat the whole box on the first day!!)

The image is called Sailing, Sailing from our sponsor, Robyn's Fetish - coloured with watercolour pencils.

I used: Gin-X paper, Martha Stewart 'Lattice Arch' border punch, Basic Grey 'Two Scoops' patterned paper (for the card)

I'm entering my project at these challenges - popular theme this week!
