Coffee of the Day - Toasted Coconut
Hello everyone! my post today is going to be super quick and super short 'cause I am super sick.... blech! this bug I have is getting worse as the days go by. my fever is staying around 102* and I can't keep any food down. not a fun way to spend the days...
anyhow, today starts a fun challenge over at Party Time Tuesdays - create a gift or card for a teacher. I used a stamp from one of our sponsors, Flonz Stamps. I love the vintage stamps they offer! just so much fun! there is a special discount available to anyone who plays along in our PTT challenge.
This pencil and eraser pack is going to a very special young lady who is studying to be an elementary school teacher. I thought she would get a kick out of it!
The packaging is actually saved from a letterpress plate - perfect for pencils, markers, candy bars, whatever your heart desires! I had seen the cute little rulers available for sale from some of the craft companies, but for 25 cents grabbed one that my son cut into 4 pieces for me. thrifty and just as fun! :) the tab was punched from a business card that had a design I loved. Patterned paper is Graphic 45 ABC Primer. I made the little notebook label down at the bottom. some great washi tapes, stitched ribbon, a doily bit, button, and a beautiful Prima rose finish this off.
thank you again to everyone who has helped my family through the Jen's Sunshine blog hop! your kindness means a lot to us! :) welcome to my new followers, too! The hop ends tonight, so be sure to get your comments in!
