Thank you with a side of chocolate and a pretty picture or two!

Hello! Whoosh! Monday blew in and whooshed right out! LOL I ran wide open all day long today. Lots of errands and things to do, but I am ok with that! Most days busy is fine with me. :) I started physical therapy today for my neck and back. Can you whine OOOOOOUUUUUCCCCCHHHHH??! It has been about 7 weeks since the accident and I am still having a lot of pain. I am very hopeful that the physical therapy will help. We will see! :)

One of my errands today included dropping a thank you gift off with someone and I wanted to share that with you! I filled it with some chocolate-y goodness, because nothing says thank you quite as deliciously! Here is my little project:

From the front:



A side view:



...and the goods:



It is a 2.5 X 2.5 box. I stamped and scored it randomly and added some ribbon and a thankful sentiment. I dangled some bright colored leaves from some ribbon on the front to give it a little pop! I needed it to look masculine as it was a gift
for a man. Came together quickly...my favorite kind of project!

Stamps: SU! Day of Gratitude
Paper: SU! Creamy Caramel (retired)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango
Extras: Pumpkin Pie ribbon, X Large punch, Scallop border punch, pop dots and glue dots

These next two photos were taken by my daughter from our deck. We live in a really pretty place! We are surrounded by woods and mountains and are lucky enough to see this view every day! :)





I hope that you have a wonderful day! I am off to get some stuff done! I will be back soonest with more to share!
