I am a huge blog-hopper. I could get lost in blogs all day if my kids would let me. They are a great tool to communicate and share ideas. I have been inspired by so many blogs that I have found. Imagine my surprise when someone noticed my humble blog! Check out this awesome blog that found me! They have some really great projects created by some very talented women. A project that I created for my son Joshua's class is featured there! Too cool!
I just wanted to take the time and say MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone! God gave us the most awesome gift ever...His son! Take time to thank Him today!
Check back soon. I will be re-vamping my blog or at least trying to over the next few weeks. I will also have some Valentine's ideas coming soon.

I made this gift card holder because I needed a larger gift card holder for my Dad. I would also be good for money gifts as well. I used Brocade Blue and Whisper White card stock. I stamped the snowflakes in Brocade Blue and the Snowmen in Basic Black. I colored them in using Pumpkin Pie and Read Red markers. I then got a little crazy with Dazzling Diamonds. I hope my Dad will like it.
The dimensions are 7 1/4 by 10. Score at 3 and 6 1/2. I trimmed the inside a little so that the gift cards would be easy to see.
I would love to hear your comments!
Have a great day!
Here are some more pics of things I have been working on. I wanted to make something cute for my son Joshua's classmates and I think this fit the bill. I used the Sweet Treat cups from Stampin' Up! and made a card and gift all in one.
I cut a regular paper lunch sack so that it measures 8 1/2 inches. To do the snowman part I used whisper white, real red and bashful blue card stock. I used the Snow Buddies stamp set (the little snowman) and cut the hole using the 1 3/4 circle punch and inserted the sweet treat cups. I found micro marshmallows at a cute little bulk food store (thanks Becky!) and filled the cup. Inside the bag I stamped snowflakes from the Christmas Punch stamp set and filled the bag with a cocoa packet. I closed them using whisper white ribbon and the slot punch.
I would love to hear what you think! Please leave me a comment or email me.

I haven't been updating my blog very much these past few weeks because I have been a busy little stamper! Take a look at what I have been making.
This little box (and the other 6 that I made) is going to some of my son Joshua's teachers. The inspiration and tutorial can be found here.
I used Kraft, whisper white and real red card stock. I sponged the edges with close to cocoa ink. I also used chocolate chip and real red ink for the stamps.
Inside the boxes are a gingerbread cookie, cocoa packet and chocolate stir stick.
I am re-vamping it for my Valentine's Stamp Camp on January 9 and 11th. Please check out my Stampin' Up! website for info or to sign up. My Stamp Camps are also available to order. Please email me for me info at stampin4him@ gmail.com
I will be making more posts today so check back soon!
