Spring Wishes Moxie Fab Style

I've taken one idea and combined a number of challenges...  Cath over at Moxie Fab World has a few fun challenges to go with their new 350 Cards & Gifts issue and I like the idea that she's going to randomly select the winners.  So, with that in mind I took her mission to make a Food Wrapped Challenge and paired it with the Card Set Challenge.  

The food gift below was once a paint can, redone to be a fun holder for fresh pumpkin muffins.  The nice thing about a paint can is that you can seal it up and the baked goods will stay fresh.



And while I had the pieces out I made 3 fun little cards to go along with it, because I think it would be fun to get a gift of baked goods AND a set of homemade cards.  The set of mini cards was loosely inspired by this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (see below, I didn't really do a very good job of following the sketch), but I did manage to include a WMS stamp (Very Vintage Labels No 4).





Now all I need is spring, we were treated to a hail storm today and some snow flurries!

Materials: Paint Can, K & Co patterned paper, PTI kraft card stock, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 4,  Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 8, May Arts blue silk ribbon, Making Memories Eyelet punch, Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Antique Linen, Waltzingmouse Stamps Say it Was Style sentiment, Versafine Black ink


Card sets: K & Co patterned paper, pink patterned paper from my stash, green art paper from my stash, PTI kraft card stock, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 4, WMS Very Vintage Labels 4, PTI Daily Design sentiment, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz Distressing ink Antique Linen, Fiskars rotary cutter with a scallop blade

What fabulous creations, Erin!! I'm eyeing those Moxie Fab 350 challenges, too. It's so appealing that there will be a random drawing this time--gives average stampers like me a chance :). Anyway, lovely work! And those muffins look yummy!
