Simple Kind Thanks



I get the amazing and priceless opportunity to teach the 3 and 4 year olds at church. Yesterday we were supposed to say "Thank You" to someone who helps us at church. I hurried and whipped this ensemble up for my class to give to that special recipient. I am always running behind on Sunday and always find it a struggle to get everyone dressed and out the door, so adding this on top of everything else was stressful. I tried to make it simple, yet elegant, so that the person who recieved it would feel special.

I used the new Raspberry Tart DSP and the new "Dream a Little" stamp set that will be coming out in the upcoming SU! Idea Book and Catalog. On the box/bag I used "Only Ovals". I Love that set, and I decided to color each different element on the image using my SU! markers. I thought that it added a little more dimension and interest. I am glad I took the extra time to do that. I colored the image on the card using a blender pen and ink refills.


I got the template for these darling Box/Bags from Cambria at http://www.stampalittlelovebaby.com/ . There have been quite a few out there, but this is the one that I used. I think she showed it in the summer sometime. I can't remember. They are super easy to make.


It is snowing here and everything is dark. I think I will put on some Christmas music, turn on the lights and enjoy my snowy morning. We had such a fun week and weekend...I will tell you all about it later. If I post something tomorrow....it will be my 200th post. I will try and do something fun for that day! Thanks for fluttering by!
P.S. I finally delivered the quilt along with the other gift to my friend. Her baby had the quilt laying over him at church yesterday and he looked adorable. It was perfect.
