Yankee Invasion

Mississippi Welcome

Mississippi Welcome

If you don’t know already, I live in Leake Co. Mississippi. My DIL’s family (mother, aunt, 2 sisters and nephew) have come for a visit to the Grove Estate. They are from MA. Long way off. I really think they just wanted to see all of my DIL’s livestock. She has her very own zoo. Chickens..some hens…some roos…ducks… “glass box” fish, an illusive cat and several dogs.( Six or seven at last count.) This poor girl should have been raised in the country, on a farm, instead of concrete. She loves animals of all kinds. I didn’t count all the birds nesting in and around their place.
To be proper in a Southern way I needed to make something, crafters are in need of making something, so they would know we do have hospitality down here. The picture above is the something I came up with. A small package of gift cards. Here are the colors etc.

Two of the packs are the same. Then the next two are the same also,just different than the first. Now that makes since doesn’t it. lol

First Pack:
Paper: White CS (probably from Walmart) is the base
on all cards.
Layers: New In-Color from SU
Blackberry Bliss,
Hello Honey
Lost Lagoon
Mossy Meadow
Tangelo Twist
Stamped Layer white CS then
stamped with Morning Meadow in the
matching color
Small pearls added to three
flowers
Envelopes: white heavy printer
paper made with the punch board and
lined with matching color DSP

Second Pack :
Paper:white CS.
Then on one there is a butterfly ( colored with the new Blendabilities markers Daffodil Delight) and cut out to layer on base. Next is a stamp from So Very Grateful colored with the Blend markers in Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Old Olive ,small rhinestones added to two flowers. Another of the same stamp but colored with Rose Red, Wisteria Wonder, and Wild Wasabi with the water brush. Next: Stamped flower from Morning Meadow in Calypso Coral twice and punched one out to add layered on top. Then just added Crystal Effects to center. Last but not least Stamped from Simply Sketched in Certainly Celery (retired) and Crystal Effects on the berries
Envelopes were also made from white printer paper and lined with a matching color DSP

Tags: Daffodil Delight CS punched with the scallop top punch along with a layer of All Abloom. A piece of doily is under the punched out pansy shape in Tangelo Twist CS with Petite Petals in Daffodil Delight held together with a brad from retired Subtles minibrads. Finished off with a leaf of Mossy Meadow and an Artisan label in white CS layered in Blushing Bride CS.

All of this is tied up in cello bags with Daffodil Delight Seam binding and a thin green with white dots ribbon from WalMart

Goodness. This was long but I do hope they enjoy giving their next gifts with these gift cards and will remember the South. Ya’ll come back you hear!

Enjoy the 4th and remember … this is the Lords Day …Rejoice!
