Faith. Hope. Courage. Strength.

 Hi Everybody. Wow I can't believe it is already the middle of February. I am not sure about the rest of you but sometimes people can get a little down in February. A little cabin fever if you know what I mean. What a better way to cheer somebody up but with a  little gift :) Today I am sharing a Project that I have made for The Twinery. I have used Cappuccino Twine on my gift set. This color is so warm and looks fantastic if your going for the old fashion or vintage look like I am trying to do lol...

A picture of just the card
Filling this little purse with some chocolate and wrapped it up with Twine is a sure winner to cheer up my friend :)... Do you need some cheering up well take a look at this new sampler pack with all 11 colors of Bakers Twine. Click here to get yours today :) Check out the Twinery Blog for more inspiration :)
 My Project today was inspired by the Challenge over at Just Us Girls. It is technique week . Use spot lighting. This is such a fun technique and one of my favorites . Here is a tutorial here

Paper: Cream and Brown Swiss Dot CS, K and Company Classic PP
