timing - noun

a dimension that enables two identical events occurring at the same point in space to be distinguished, measured by the interval between the events

We had a little birthday party at our monthly meet up for Hiking With Cameras for our leader Wendy. We all brought a little something to eat and I had volunteered to bring some fruit and I chose pineapple.
Now the problem in bringing something to a party is getting it back home, will it be forgotten? Would someone mistake it for their dish and take it accidentally? Will it get broken? So I always try and go the safest route, but leaving it in that container would be...well.....safe but very unattractive, right?
So add a little paper and...voila!

And, of course I volunteered to make a birthday card for everyone to sign for her:
I used some printed Kraft paper for the background, layered with an inked plain kraft paper and then used a pine tree paper on top. I cut the tree from my Cricut but need the trunk to be longer so I hand cut that out. Tied it up with some cute twine, and used hiking boot stickers as charms, pop dotting one up for some dimension.
And the inside of the card reads:
Happy 29th Birthday AGAIN!
Winter Wonderland cartridge
Really Reasonable Ribbon twine
My Little Shoebox sticker letters
Kraft paper,stickers, pine paper- stash
