Pamper Yourself gift set

Do you need a little pampering???

Here's a quick little gift idea, or mix a batch up for yourself!   Hand & Foot scrub!

With the warm weather approaching, I'll be in sandals or more likely barefoot, so I like to keep my feet looking good!  This is a great scrub to keep in the shower & use daily!

Stamps: Victoria Case for SCACD (Ms MyTime)
sentiment: My Favorite Things
Paper: Memory Box, Cosmo Cricket 
Ink: Memento, Copic markers
Other: MS border punch, Offray ribbon,
Zva Creative bling

Is this Victoria Case stamp not perfect for this gift set?   It was perfect for the SCACD challenge this week too!  A SCACD stamp, 2 dps & ribbon, I made a fun twisted ribbon flower for my card!  Love making them!

Hubby & I made the peppermint scrub here, and the house smelled so good, like a big piece of chewing gum!  lol

Hand & Foot scrubs

**Peppermint Scrub:

Mix together 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup mineral oil, 2 T. corn syrup, 1/2 t. peppermint extract and a drop of green food coloring.

**Brown Sugar and Honey Scrub:

Mix together 1 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup mineral oil and 2 T. honey.

**Sugar Cookie Scrub:

Mix together 1 cup raw sugar, 1/3 cup mineral oil, 2 T. corn syrup and 1 t. vanilla.

Don't have mineral oil, or raw sugar?  There are dozens of recipes on the web with very basic ingredients!   You could even have the kids help!  Or have Dad & the kids mix up a batch for Mother's Day!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed my post & it inspires you to do something fun today!
