Happy Monday!!!! Well it's snowing here and so it's a good thing the kids had off today anyways or we would be having once again another snow day!!! Did I tell you how ready I am for spring to get here??

Anyways today is the final part of our month long Ippity challenge I hope you have been enjoying it as much as we have!!!

So the final twist to the challenge RIBBON yep all you need to do is use ribbon!!!
Everyone knows how much I adore ribbon it's so hard for me to make a card without some kind of ribbon so this is perfect!!!

This is a project that my daughter and I did together it is one of my friends Birthday so I thought it would be fun for my little girl to make a small fun little gift and if anyone is going to appreciate a handmade gift it's my friend Tracy. So my daughter Mackenzie was so excited about this!!!

This is where Mommy comes in to make a special gift wrap to pretty it all up. I am really impressed that I killed two birds with one stone with this project a birthday gift and a Dt assignment!!!

I used Season Of Joy for my tag I love the fun shape and it is the perfect size for the tag for the sentiment I used the kit Just Wanted To Say
Dp and flower sticker is from Sassafras and of course I had to also get some kind of Twine in there which I am sure you all know by now is from the fabulous Twinery!!!

That's it a pretty little package for a sweet handmade gift love it!!!

Make sure to check out the Ippity blog for the Ippity chicks and customers there is some amazing talent and inspiration!!!
