10.21.2010 – Hip Hop

Following today’s theme of gratitude, I have a little gift for someone special.  Do you have someone that constantly does little things for you.  Just here or there and always brightens your day.  Nothing grand like a new car but, just a nice comment or a hug when you really needed one and didn’t know it.  Well, this little something is for my person.

I wrapped a box of her favorite theater candy (Hot Tamales – if you wanted to know) in some kraft paper.  Wrapped a nice thick ribbon around and created a little grateful tag using some of my favorite Ippity stamp sets: Fall for You & A Moment in Time.  The patterned paper is from the Restoration line (Crate Paper) and I shaded the pumpkin with some Copics.
