Gift Set, Flap Cards and One Layer Card

Good Afternoon!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!
Ours was quiet but very nice.
My parent's 39th anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks and I've been trying to put a few things together for them. Thought I'd get the easy things out of the way first. I'd love to do a small scrapbook of Chloe for them and well scraping is not something I do...but I will try!
I'd covered this candle jar and candy jar earlier today. Thought I'd use todays TLC challenge on SCS to finish it off.
The challenge was a Flap Card. The tutorial was written by Rose Ann and you can find it on the Scor Pal site.
I made mine a little larger. Instead of cutting it 3.5 x 11. I started with 4.25 x 11. So I ended with a 4.25 square.
This is the top of the containers.
I did not do any stamping on this card. It's all done with the Sale A Bration Rub Ons. I LOVE those things. I wasn't sure if the Olive coloured ones would show on the Olive cardstock but they turned out okay.
Aren't these CC Designs Little Penguins the cutest? They are so adorable! This one is stamped in Brilliance Black and coloured with Copic Markers.
Lastly, I finally got Lauren's blog challenge done.
She asked us to make a one layer card and keep it to one corner. I had to pull out my fave watercolouring image....lol
I stamped Versafine Black on Papertrey White and coloured with an Aqua Painter and re-inkers.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Oh my gosh Dawn!! Everything is wonderful! I love your flap cards. The larger size was a great idea. And your one layer card is adorable. The boat image was a perfect choice for the corner!

What a fantastic gift set!! Wow!! I'm really loving those felt flowers, and the rub-ons look really nice on the olive cardstock! Very cute penguin card too! And ...uh...one layer with an image in the corner? Wow, that really IS a challenge! Your boat card is perfect! The piercing was a great idea to add that "just right" extra bit of something! (Did that make sense? lol.)
