I decided to get an early start on my neice's birthday gift. Since my sister was just here, I was able to send some family gifts home with her to deliver for me. Saved me some shipping! Samantha is turning 11 and I thought this sentiment was perfect for her. I had some new Fancy Pants dp that I pieced her up with. I played up the purple in the dp, and was able to add a cute ruffled ribbon (high style collection) along with some MFT twill.

The inside of the card I made into a little pocket, which holds a personalized book mark for her. I used the new Wendy Uppercase Alphabet mini set to spell her name (she goes by SAM alot, and it fit on the bookmark better). Did you know that Wendy is the name of the MFT font used on many of the MFT sets. I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have an alphabet set in this FONT! YEAH! It's another great perk of getting this VIP kit-a Free mini kit! I also added a small scalloped edge and a felt flower with a Earth Girl wooded button. I'm thinking I need to make myself one of these bookmarks! I think it turned out quite cute!
Okay, off you go. There's still more to see. Cindy is up next. Hop along! and then Shop, shop, SHOP!
