What's in My Basket??

But not that "basket"! LOL! Here is the gift basket I made for a door prize for the Texas stampers gathering I'm going to this weekend. I hope it's not the last lonely gift on the table, I saw some of the stuff from last year, oh my word!!* The big draw (hopefully!) in this basket is a gift certificate for my May release stamp set(which I am SO freaking excited about!!), but I also put in some gum, chocolate cherry M&M's, a decorated tin and matching handmade earrings, a handmade card, a board book to alter, a bottle of Cotton Candy Stickles, and two rolls of pink ribbon. I didn't intend for this to be a big "pink themed" gift, but once I got started , I just couldn't stop!!

Honestly I first was just going to bring the gift certificate! But now when I'm gift-giving , I always try to ask myself "WWDD?"* and that helps me step it up several notches :)

OH, speaking of prizes, my first Blog Candy winner never came back to claim the prize by the 5 PM deadline today, so....... here is the new winner of the Papertrey Anniversary Set ..(good thing I don't have to worry about any of you running out to buy it when you heard didn't win, right? 'cause you can't! ;):

I have been drooling over your sets! My husband won't let me buy any and I think it's because he is going to! My birthday is coming up so...... He better, darn it! If not, I'm going to anyway!!!I do not have that Papertrey ink set... I love, love, love it though and WISH I had it! When I saw it I just about cried that I couldn't buy it! :)

Courtney?? Are you out there? and excited?! Please send me your snail addy, and if I hear from you in time I will try to get the set to the post office before I drive to Arlington tomorrow! :)

*What Would Donna Do? (although I know in the end I still didn't do as much as Donna would have!!)
