A quick post
Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Mine has been crazy and look forward to eventually having things calm down soon but so far there is no sign of that happening. Tonight I get to go to a friends baby shower. I am excited to have some time with friends. I need it for sure.
wanted to show you something I made very quickly yesterday. I will have more things to post soon but it is a matter of getting my brain to work in the craft department of my head.
I have 3 friends I try to visit every month. They are all women that I am fortunate enough to go to church with and a couple of them I "work" with in primary. They are great women. With the summer here we are all busy and don't have a lot of time for extra things.
It just so happens that my sister got some Amish Friendship bread starter and gave me some. Sunday was the day for me to bake and seperate. I had just enough time to seperate all the starters Sunday night but that was about it. I did bake mine first thing Monday.
I decided I was going to give a starter to the ladies that I visit with every month. Unfortunately one of the starters spilled all over my kitchen counter. I did go ahead and give the starters to one friend and a neighbor I have not introduced myself to yet.
I couldn't just had them a bag of starter so I decided to take a paper lunch bag and make a tag for it. Just enough dress to make it nice but not overdone.
I started with Terracotta Tile paper and stamped with vintage cream ink using polka dot basics set. I then used some vintage cream cardstock and sponged the edges with tea dye distress ink. I stamped the star from everyday classics stamp set using melon berry ink and the sentiment is from round & round stamp set in black ink.
The ribbon is some I had in my stash. I tied it with a cream button and terracotta tile dmc floss. That is about it. But I love how it turned out.
