Teacher Gift

Ok, I have finally posted something creative. I have been so busy with getting ready for Christmas I have not have time to do anything creative other than my cards. I put together this cute teacher gift. The mug is from Wal-Mart and a gift card from Starbucks. I loved how this little card turned out. I normally would have not put these colors together but this is how it happened. The 3x3 card came with a punch set I bought from Stampin'up. (i don't remember the name and don't have time to look it up, sorry) Since the mug had a snowman on it I wanted to stamp a snowman on the gift card but did not have a snowman stamp. You will never believe this, the image on the card is from a hostess stamp set my sister has. I stamped it several years ago and punched it out and keep it in case I wanted to use it later. Well, much later, I needed it. Michelle was amazed that I was able to find it. I put it in my CM punch holder so I would be able to find it and found it I did. I'm not always this organized. I don't always find things when I put them away in case I might want to use later and find it. This is the one and only time this has happened. Anyway, I used my stampin up marker's and glue pen to add glitter, but it does not show up in the pic. It turned out really pretty with all the glitter.
I finally got my Christmas cards done and mailed out. Yeah!! and most of my wrapping is done. Double Yeah!!! I will post a pic of my card in a couple days, maybe on Christmas. I just want to wait till most everyone has had time to get them in the mail before I post.
I hope to get more creative now that things are calming down a bit. I mean my blog is about my family and my creations. I will do my best.
Thanks for looking.
