A Box Of Sunshine!

I have a very good friend that has been in the hospital since February.  She has been in Lincoln, Nebraska which is about 3 1/2 hours from us and I have been unable to visit her.  Now she has been moved to a hospital closer to us and I was able to visit her this past weekend.  While she was in Lincoln, she celebrated her birthday down there and so I sent her a "Box of Sunshine!!" another idea I got off of Pinterest.  The idea is to gather as much items that are yellow or that are happy!  I came up with this!

I sent her some bath gel and lotion, a pack of tissues which I decorated the outside, candies, a candle, tic tacs, a notepad and pen ~ whatever you can find that will put a smile to someone's face.  I printed out a sign and adhered it to the top of the box.  You can click HERE to go to the website where I got this idea and download the sunshine printable for your own use!


Then I made a card for her using a retired SU!stamp set that I love!  It is simply called "Smile".

I made the card very simple & just added a get well sentiment on the inside and decorated the top and bottom with some yellow scalloped pieces of cardstock. 

I hope this inspires you to add a little sunshine to someone's life!

Thanks for stopping by!

I saw this idea on Pinterest too. I have a friend whose cancer has returned and I think this would be a perfect box to mail her! Thanks for the reminder!

I bet your friend loved all the goodies! I hope she is on her way to a speedy recovery.

I'm happy I came today and saw this SUNSHINE post because I am loving it! I think the entire idea is just perfect, including the "box of sunshine" name. :) I want to copy this lol. It is adorable and would be so fun to receive. I especially like how you coordinated everything.
