Better to Give

It really is more fun to give than to receive... That may sound corny - but it's true - give it a try...

I had so much fun putting together this little package for Auntie X and sending it off yesterday.

First of course I finished the dishcloth - this one was knit during the last movie the Man-Cub and I went to see - Auntie X requested a dark blue border - so this may look black - but it's navy...

Then - I had bought this little tool a while back (at Michaels I think) for stenciling/embossing...

I printed out a pretty script letter A - and cut that out with an exacto knife - and taped the center pieces back in place...

The little notch at the top is so I can put a post it note there and hold it to my card stock without damaging it - you can see the post it note in the picture above too...

Then - I went to the local office supply store (yes we still have one on Old Main) and bought some pretty parchment card stock and embossed the letter onto that...

But it was actually nicer on the plain white card stock that I already had...

...so here is the little package of goodies ready to be mailed - everybody loves tea - right - and there's vegan mango soap too - see how much fun that was...
