For mom

A couple weeks ago while I was at the store, I decided to buy one of the Magnolia stamps. I'm not too familiar with this line of stamps and I had no idea what I was getting other than it looked oriental. I used a Sizzix pro box called matchbox which my friend Gail sent to me all the way from Georgia. Thanks Gail! And because Mother's Day is coming up, I went with this stamp from Hero Arts because it reminds me that I'm always thinking about my mom. Here's a picture of the box opened and I filled it with a lot of Hershey kisses.
And this is what it looks like without the candy. It's quite big and you could probably fit cookies in there too.
Hope you're having a great week and thanks for stopping by today!!!

Oo-oo-ooh -ahhh! You know that I am going to be on the look out for that matchbox die. Your project is precious. Now I wish that I had purchased the Magnolia stamp when I saw it....you know where! I love all the details of your candy box. Guess I need to make another shopping trip to J's.

What a precious Magnolia - I'm gonna have to go buy that stamp too. I like how you coordinated the colors really looks oriental.
Luv the matchbox...

Wow Cheryl, What a great project! I'm not a big fan of Tilda, but she's cute in your project. I am a big fan of matchboxes, even big ones. So, there's a die cut for this one? Hmmm, I think I need to have one. LOL
TFS and warm hugs to you.
