Graduation gift I made

How is everyone? It's been pretty hot here in the high 90's. I wish it would rain but all we've received is a few lighting clouds but no rain. :0(...
Last Sunday was my sister in law's graduation party for her receiving her barber license. She loves cutting designs in their hair.
I thought about what I could make her since money is low on my side until hubby graduates from Texas Tech University. Than I got a great idea what about a tip box and even if she doesn't want to use as a tip box she can put what ever she wants.

Her talent:

I used 5 6x6 black chip board to make the sides. Glued them together and I also used duct tape to give it more support 

Print outs I used for the sides of the box. love the old look. And i used mod podge to give it a gloss look 

Bling I used for the bottom and top edges 

Top view of the box

The sides of the box, it was so hard not to put flowers on it, lol

I also made a card to match

New Friend

Yesterday I met my new friend Ema. I found her on a card making blog and the best part she lives in the same city as I do. Yea me! I found someone to craft, talk about card making and scrapbooking with. I'm so happy to find her. She is such a sweet and friendly person and I really enjoyed talking to her. We met for lunch and I wanted to make her a card and a little goodie bag of flowers. She really loved the flowers I gave her some from Wild Orchid Crafts and who doesn't love their flowers. Right!
She's also into using copic markers too so that's a plus too. I'm so happy!

The card I made her:

And to my surprise she even made me a card with some goodies. I love the card and goodies. Thank you Ema. 

Back of the card. She did a great job.

My goodies she gave me 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend everyone
