Happy Windy Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

Tick tock, tick tock.... Getting closer everyone. Christmas is only 7 days away. Do you have all your Christmas crafts done? I've got a couple of last minute things to do, then I know I'm done. I am kinda excited to get started on Valentines day cards. I so want to make some of those mailboxes for Valentines, but I don't have a Target close by. Everyone seems to get them there.

You wanna see what I made for Danielle's bus driver? He is such a sweet guy. When she broke her ankle I called the transportation department to see if the driver could stop in front of the house to pick her up and drop her off ~ she was on crutches for a while and the bus stop is over 2 blocks away. Well, I was told that he could not "deviate" from the route. Then without asking him he started to stop in front of the house for her. What a sweetie! So I made a card and matching gift for him.

The base card is Chocolate Chip ~ I love that color!! I layered the card with some DP from SU! I think that it is called Frosty, I think.... and some Old Olive and more of the same DP. I stamped the image from Rubber Stampede and added the exhaust from the Crusin' Christmas set. I layered that on to a piece of Tangerine Tango. I water colored the image and used my Sakura pen on the exhaust to make it sparkle. The flowers are felt that I purchased from Big Lots some time ago and the snowflake is foam, attached all together with an orange brad. If you can tell, the DP is a little busy, but Betty had brought over another punch she got from Martha Stewart, isn't it cool?

Now, I must give credit where credit is due. This little pouch, box, pocket ~ whatever you want to call it - is from Lauren Meader over at My Time, My Creations, My Stampendance-it's her Music Makeover box that she sells over at Papertrey Ink. Now, before I lose you to those links ~ let me tell you the deet's....

The box I made out of a sheet of DP from the same SU! collection (Frosty, I think). I tood different pieces of it and layered it on to the flap of the box. The stamp is from an old SU! set (I'm sorry I forgot which one) and I punched it out with my Marvy Scallop Oval punch and layered it on to another punched piece. I added a couple Primas and felt flowers with crystal brads and I was done. I neglected to get a picture of the inside, but I put a hot chocolate packet, candy cane and marshmallows in it.

Danielle said that he loved it. I know at Christmas we are all thinking of our children's teachers, but do we forget the others? The counselors, the lunch ladies, the bus drivers.... They are all a part of our children's lives too.

Well, enough for today. I slept in a bit late and got started on this a little late. Now my day is completely thrown off. I hope to be back tomorrow with more. I've got lots more pictures to add.

Have a great day!
