My Craft Spot Challenge #24 - Friends are the best!

***Click HERE for Jo's Birthday Blog Hop or scroll down***

It is Monday and time for another fun Monday Challenge at My Craft Spot!  I really love the challenge this week!  The challenge is Friends are the Best and my friends really are the best!  Here is what I made for one of our friends and for your inspiration!

Our garden is full and I am not going to have time to do any canning as I had planned so we decided to give some of our crop to our friends who will use it!  My husband picked some peppers and just threw them in a plastic bag!  Men!!  I had to make a nicer presentation, especially for such great friends who help us out all the time! 

I grabbed some retired Stampin' Up! DSP and threw this sweet little tag together.  It is stamped with a sentiment from Sweet Sentiments Set #1 and I traced over the "warm" with a black marker.  Do you get the little pun it entails!!  These peppers are sure to warm there dishes! 

I used Marmalade Crinkle Ribbon and Carribean Bakers Twine to tie a bow/attach the tag and finished it off with a button.  I think they'll like it and I'm glad it will be going to some good use!

Please join us this week at My Craft Spot for our Friends are the Best challenge!  Kimberly has a fabulous prize for one lucky winner and you'll want to stop by and see what the DT has come up with this week!  Thanks for stopping by today!

I laughed when I read your post! Your husband sounds just like mine - he's always throwing things in plastic bags. And I'm just like you, taking time to make things look nice! Too funny!
Those peppers have my mouth watering. Yum! Your tag is fantastic and makes for such a wonderful way to present your gift!

What a nice gift. The presentation is just adorable. Glad you took them out of the plastic bag! It looks much better in the cute basket. I love the tag you made.
