Over the hill gift

Hello Ai fans!!
Yesterday a good friend of mine turned 40.  We tourned the wineries in the Finger Lakes and then went to her country club for dinner.  There were 16 of us in all and it was so much fun!!  We didn't do gag gifts but I just had to include this "old buzzard" with my real gift.  She got quite a kick out it and was thrilled when she found her favorited Swedish Fish inside the jar.
I spray painted the jar and lid and once it dried I wrapped it in designer paper.
Next I added the buzzard and a tombstone from Sizzix.  Last, I added the black lace and fuzzy ribbon.  I thought the ribbon looked "feathery".

I posted her card a while back but here's a reminder of what I made.

Sounds like a wonderful day and what fun to share it with so many friends. I love the black lace and fibers and what perfect stamps and dies.
Prayers for you....stay safe.
