Using some of my new SU products and lovin' them!

I finally got around to ordering some of the new products from the Occasions Mini Catalog and earned some cool FREE sale-a-bration products too!! Did you know that from now until March 31, 2010, for every $50 of products you purchase (before tax and shipping costs) you can earn a FREE product from the SAB catty?? That's right! FREE!! My most favorite promotion of the year!! Check out the Occasions Mini catalog and the SAB catty by clicking on the link on my side bar or email me with any questions you may have about it! You can also order online on my SU website 24/7. Check out that link on my side bar too!
There's been a bunch of birthdays that we celebrated just in the last month, so here is what I came up with in wrapping up a mini milk carton die (from SU). Yup! that's what is in this gift here. Here's the front cover. I used the new Sweet Pea felt flowers (117266), love these, so cute! Can you see the cute little border on the bottom of the cover?? You can earn this border punch FREE as one of the SAB selections!! Love this too! Here's a side view with the flap opened.
A view of my built in card. I'm using the new set Well Scripted (117072 wood, 118601 clear) - so pretty yeah?
Here's a close up of the felt flowers...
I used two 1/2: pink epoxy brads (117271)and wrapped silver cord around it as my closure. Those brads are so cool and I love the squishy feel of it! The sentiment is from A Little Birthday Cheer (120242) got it FREE as a SAB selection too! I pnnched out the sentiment using my modern label punch (116630). BTW, the image is from an older stamp set called Pun Fun. It's still available in the idea book and catalog (115054).
This was something I just made up as I went along...I had no clue where I was going with this, but I'm happy with the result! Thanks for stopping by today. Reading all of your sweet comments are helping me get back into the crafty mood...
It's Furlough Friday tomorrow...getting together with a couple of friends to craft...see you soon!
