The Pixie Cottage is looking for your fun in the sun creations and/or the sketch.The digital image is Chatty by Artish found here.

I made this as a gift card for my Sister. My daughter and grandbabies are here from Tennesee.
My youngest sister and her have planned a girls time at my sister's home in Paso Robles, Ca.
My mom, sister, 3 nieces, my two daughters all their children and myself will all be traveling to Paso for a extended girls weekend. We have not all been together for several years and never just the girls so this will be a real special time. They have planned things for the children and adults. My sisters husband will be the resident chef and her son and husband will be in charge of the children while the girls to their thing.

My job is to make the gift card so we call chip in to help defray costs. This is the pocket on the inside of the card to stash the cash in.

Since there will be a bucket load of us sleeping everywhere I thought this was the perfect image for the gift card!!First I water colored the image, cut out and and attached to the embossed mat. After punching the edge with the MS Daisy punch I cut out the sentiments with Spellbinder label #11 and foam dotted on.
Next I attached the handmade flower and then wrapped the ribbon around twice and tied in a double bow.

I also made a little matching tag to stick inside.
