By the way, is it just me, or are metallics really hard to work with?!

And as always, here's the back:

Maybe Amy will have a better picture. The frame is a dark green and I used a piece of 28ct linen that was pale pink with the recommended Crescent Colors floss.

Update: Lynn Z filled in my last spot - congrats! Well, I've now got to get busy and start thinking of some great things to send these women.

Well, here's a photo of everything wrapped up and ready to send. I know by the time it arrives, all the pretty bows will be smashed, so I wanted to have a picture of it while it's still really pretty! Once my partner receives it, I'll post some pictures of the main present (I didn't take photos of all the other goodies I included).
I really hope she likes everything!
How gorgeous is that ribbon?! I wish you could feel how smooth and silky it is. It's hot pink dots with a black background. It's a 50 yard roll that I scored at Costco for $1.97! That's right! They were having a close out on all of their ribbon and I bought 8 rolls of difference patterns and textures and colors, all 50 yards each, and all for $1.97 a roll. I very rarely score great deals - this has to be the best one ever.

The first FIVE people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It will be done this year. (that's right, before December 31, 2009!)
4- You have no clue what it's going to be. Just because I cross stitch, doesn't necessarily mean that's what it will be (but it might!). I dabble in quite a few mediums. Who knows?
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. But I would never send something that I didn't like myself!
The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and make the same offer to the first 5 people who respond on your blog entry, thereby continuing the fun! (Though you can keep it local if you want, I don't fear international postage!)
The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! Sounds like fun, right? So, let's play!
