A small gift for a kind neighbor

Hi everybody!

Today I'd like to show you a little gift that I made for my nextdoor neighbor. She has been kind enough to bring me tomatoes from her garden the past weeks and I thought it'd be a nice gesture to give her a little something to let her know that I really appreciate her kindness. In The Netherlands we have a saying "better a good neighbor then a far away friend" and I think that's true and I really appreciate the good neighbors that we have here.

I made a small cablebox using THIS purchased template and filled it with chocolates. I used Polly from Wee Stamps (digital image/rubber stamp) as I think she's perfect for just about every theme. As always she was colored with Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced. I decided to go for a red/blue and white color scheme.
The back of the box with a computer generated sentiment that reads Bedankt which means Thank you in Dutch. I love this flower cluster with all these gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. You'll find links to the different flowers below.

And the little pieces the image was made of.
