A FALL themed card and a gift idea

I love the die cuts that BasicGrey created to go with this collection of papers.

The ones I used here are just perfect for a little card.
Just how cute is this little girl? I added her with foam tape so that my elements had dimension and the little ball on her hat is an additional layer.

There are so many simple and fast ideas for giving a little gift to a co-worker or a neighbor. Just little things that say I am thinking of you and yet, you can make several of these. Mine also shows off some recycling. I used a plastic juice container. Of course, it was washed out well, the label was removed and I filled it with peppermint Lifesavers that are individually wrapped. This way the gift can be filled without having to handle candy. There are so many Christmas papers and supplies that make this a very easy craft. I used "punched out" snowflakes as my accents here.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

That fall card is so adorable and I really like how you turned a common juice bottle into a lovely little present.

Thanks for the inspiration.
