Think Pink Hope Kit

I decided to make a little gift to go with the Fight Like a Girl card I posted yesterday. I guess you would ordinarily call it one of those Survival Kits but I decided to call mine a "hope" kit!

I covered a qt. sized acrylic can with DP, added some string pearls, flowers, that same glittery pink ribbon dress I used on my card and lots of bling to the top, satin ribbon, flowers, beads....a totally girly happy gift can, I think.

Kudos to my DH...he figured out how to get the handle off the acrylic can so I could run pony beads around it. We glued it back on with E6000...had to let it dry for a day or so to make sure it was good and secure but I love the look, don't you?

I printed the contents of the can on Vellum, rolled it like a scroll, tied with ribbon and popped it inside with the rest of the goodies.

Freebie alert: Verve stamps has a free digi download on an adorable set called Warm Winter Wishes but only until 10/ you better hurry over!

Thanks for droppping by....I appreciate you!

That is so cool. I just received a graphic of a woman/girl with a bandana and boxing gloves on that says "Fight like a girl". I would love to know what you put in the can. I have a friend who is fighting cancer right now and would love to give her a Hope kit too. My e-mail is Thanks!
