Sweet Pea Gift Box

Happy Friday everyone. Today there is a new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday, the challenge is Green. It can be the color or you can "Go Green", I decided to do both. Our sponsor is Sweet Pea Stamps, she is generously donating a $20 gift certificate to her store. She also generously donated stamps to our DT which we are extremely thankful for. If you haven't checked out her store I suggest you do because it rocks.
This box had those peppermint sticks covered in chocolate. I tend to keep boxes and containers like this because I know I could eventually use them in my crafting. Most of them sadly just sit without being used but I'm going to get better at using them. I thought a set of cards would fit in here but it is slightly too small, so more than likely I will put candies in it.

On a different note, I went to see orthopedic yesterday and I didn't need a cast or even the splint anymore. I just need to keep it in a sling till tomorrow and then I can let my arm loose. I will start physical therapy next week to gain back my range of motion. Not sure how I'm going to like not having my arm protected since it still does hurt but it is good to know that the healing process isn't going to take as long as I thought. Thanks for visiting, I hope you join us with challenge and check out the rest of the DT's creations.
