Pillow Box Packaging + Free Image

Rain, rain go away....come back again some other day!  We've had a record 18+" for May!   In one way, that 's wonderful because we were in the midst of a horrible drought.  But, we've also had so much dangerous flooding.  Too bad it takes a monsoon to break a drought!  We're due for some more rain over the next couple of days and probably more tornadoes as it is also warming up.   Got to stay weather aware!

We did manage to make it to Wichita for a couple of days to see Lauren, Paul and the huge dog, Percy.   We had a wonderful time even though it rained from lunchtime on Saturday continuously until we got home around 5:00 on Sunday. 

I'm still trying to remember to use some older goodies that I've been hording.  Here you can see the blue fabric button and the green safety pin.  Had both for years!   That blue ribbon has probably been around even longer!

Love pillow boxes for quick packaging and love it even more when I have a darling image to add.   If you like her, you can download her HERE.  Just right click and download.

For the background, I started with an old piece of ledger paper and stamped it with a background words stamp  Hey, it's really old, too!   Used a paintbrush to throw some pink and blue watercolor "dots" and spread on some yellow watercolor for good measure.  Then just used a circle die that fit my doily die.

Well, back to work tomorrow!  Wonder how many more inches of rain we'll get?

Have a wonderful week!


  1. This is beautiful - what a fabulous gift topper!

  2. What a wonderful way to package a small surprise gift. I know you must be so very sweet because your makes are always so sweet! I know I have probably said this to you before.
    In your weather report, I noticed you did not say anything about earthquakes! Throughout all the rains I sure have been thinking of you. Seems like Oklahoma City has had a bad time of it.
