I've been volunteered...

My BFF's hubby recently suggested to her that maybe I would like to donate something to the National Wild Turkey Federation Banquet Lady's Table. He thought it would be a good way to 'get my name out there' and since I love containers, I was only too eager to help. After long pondering, this is what I came up with. The die I used was the Sizzix Pro Pie Box, #656400. I cut nine of them from a wonderful linen texture red cardstock. They were stamped with Papertrey's 'Turning a New Leaf' stamp set using VersaMark and heat embossed with Zing's Glittered Gold embossing Powder. The silk Peony on top was purchased from Michael's a gazillion years ago. Each box will be filled with quarter-sized heart cookies, the whole cake assembled and wrapped in gold wire ribbon which will keep it together. I think it will make a splendid presentation on the Lady's Table and I'm very happy with it. But unless Ruthann takes pictures of it, I probably won't see it set up. If she does, I'll share them here.

Thanks for visiting. Always love it when people come to call.
