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.
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.
