Unity FWF 1/27 and Ippity Chicks sketch 15

Friday again! Time for another Friends with Flair at Unity (win free stamps. awesome projects. go back and check it all out!) and since I have a sick kiddo, I'm doubling up with this week's Ippity Chicks Sketch 15. More bang for your buck, as my mom the avid couponer would say. :)

Chick Challenges with {ippity}












Anyhow. We have a niece who is leaving in another week to go teach English in China for a year, and I thought I'd make a tag. I still don't have a gift for her.... what do you get someone who is going to China for a year? I don't know. But I have the tag ready. :)



 
Ippity's Shine, shine shine, some FUN My Mind's Eye paper I think - or maybe October afternoon? Not sure. Distress inks in Walnut stain, tea dye, and Weathered Wood (why that one is BLUE, I have no idea).



The cord is copper (not purple - I don't know why the color looks so off) and I only pulled it to the side for the photo. It wasn't lying nicely at ALL. I'll tie it onto... well, whatever we end up giving her. :) Oooh, I do have an idea, come to think of it - a memory box from Paper Coterie! Hmmm. Off to browse in just a sec...

Now. I must be off to find a gift and also the Momento Ink pad that I suspect a little munchkin of stealing... darn kid took my favorite color! I already checked her hotspots and no luck yet...


Happy weekend! Thanks for visitng me today!

  1. Hi Jen! This is a lovely tag for your niece!! Love the stamps you used. Having worked in China before(and not being able to speak Mandarin well), I'm thinking perhaps a phrase pocket book might be a practical gift ;) Hope your little one gets well soon..Take care!

  10. Adorable tag! Maybe you could make your niece a set of notecards to match the tag so she can write home? Or maybe a calling card of some sort? Whatever you get for her I am sure she will love it!
