Hi all, I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! My daughter will be starting preschool on September 3rd. The Teacher will be visiting my daughter on September 1st at our house. Here is a thank you gift I made for her teacher. It is a metal pencil holder, I added some color permanent markers and some black ink pens. I hope she will like it. Do you think this is a good thank you, gift idea for a teacher? I wrapped it with some clear wrap and tied a red ribbon bow. This Teacher's gift project was easy to make. Have a good weekend all!

I was inspired by this week's Challenge #42 and contest over at The Cuttlebug Spot to create a card with our favorite embossing folder and to spot (3) of their blinkies on other blogs and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Spot. You have to do both for a chance to win some cuttlebug embossing folders. Contest ends on Saturday August 8th at 9 P.M (PST). Here is my card and my favorite embossing folder is the Swiss Dots. I embossed the front of the card with Swiss dots. I used a rose stamp and stamped it on white card stock colored in with colored pencils and cut it out with scissors and I stamped Thank You on a blue card stock. I added some ricrac, pattern paper, scrapbook stickers and gems. Have a good day all :)

This week over at the Chirper Challenge is to "Let's get in shape"! The challenge was to create a shape card or layout. I did a shape card I always wanted to do a shape card, but I never made one. I made this card for my Mom she always been there when I needed her no matter what. My Mom will always be my angel! I picked the globe from the Doodlecharms. I welded the base and blackout of the globe in DesignStudio at 6 1/2 inch and I cut the globe out on a 12 x 12 inch of purple textured card stock. I pushed the shift key on the cricut machine and cut the globes top with pattern paper. I cut (2) blackouts in pink card stock for the inside of card at 6 1/2 inch. I used the Joys Of The Season Cartridge and cut the angel at 3 inch in pink card stock and cut layers for angel in white card stock and colored it in with pencils and blending chalk. I used some buttons, gems and ribbon. Have a nice Sunday all!
