Gift basket...

We recently attended the Montana Chief of Police Conference in Kalispell.
I had a lot of fun putting together a gift basket for one of the raffle prizes.
Along with Bath & Body Works lotions, soaps, room freshner, foot cream, etc.,
I included a boa, slippers and dish cloths that I made.
We called the basket "A Few of Our Favorite Things" so we had to put in Cheetos, Oreo Sticks,
Burt's Bees chap stick (in a pillow box made with SU die), gum (wrapped in stamped paper) and York Peppermint Patties (of course, also covered in stamped and scalloped punched circles).
Other non-stamped and non-homemade items included coffee mugs, coffee samples, a box of tea, search a word books & bubbles!
oops...we ate the Milk Duds!
They are some of the best chocolate covered caramels around!
I also included 15 of my stamped cards including Christmas cards, Sympathy, Birthday & Thinking of You...

These are a few of the cards included.

This one is made using the SU Little Leaves Sizzlits & Simple Flower dies, the scallop oval paper punch and a Cuddlebug embossing folder.
Rhinestone brads are in the center of each flower.

This card is more masculine and could be used for birthday or Father's Day.

Sympathy card...
