A Treasure Box For Verda


Those of you who follow my blog may remember when I posted of my friend Verda, who lives in the apartment to the right of mine and comes to my apartment door - without fail - every Monday morning, carrying her candy dish of the anise candy, for me to take my weeks supply plus one for Jim and to give me a big hug. As a thankyou I make her a card or a paper project of some kind each week - trying to think of something different each time to surprise her. She always comes back again during the week to tell me how much she likes that week's surprise and she always has such kind comments to make about my work. Love that little lady! Candy, a hug and compliments - every week!

I posted the start of this treasure box I was making for her on an earlier WOYWW post and when I checked back today I saw that it was two weeks ago - and what was amazing was that just a few days before that, I posted of our big snowstorm with photos of all of that heavy but beautiful snow that was sticking to everything - making it look like a fairy land. A little over 2 weeks ago we woke to a white world with snow covering everything. We have now had 80 degree weather for over a week!

So I have finished the treasure box for Verda - and I will be giving it to her next week. I hope she likes it! A day or so after she brings me the candy, I will hang it on her apartment door as I always do so she will be surprised. Then she will use her magnifying glass so she can see the details and when her visiting nurse comes to give Verda her daily insulin shot she will have the nurse check it out to tell her if she has missed anything and describe it if she has. :<) And I will have the candy and the compliments - and that wonderful hug to last me for a week!

Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! I tried to visit everyone yesterday who had left me a comment and I will continue to visit all of my followers that I can this weekend! So many wonderful bloggers out there to visit amd be inspired by all of their creations!

Wishing you a great weekend!

Am so late to visit WOYWW, I've enjoyed catching up! Loved your spring card for the sassy challenge, how sweet an image - dont you colour beautifully. Varda's treasure bos is just that..the precision in keeping the grid paper perfect is probably a labour of love that won't be noticed!
