Gift -Giving!

Hello friends! How are you doing with your Christmas shopping? I am getting there. I find the actual shopping is easy, it's the hand made/home made things that take me the most time and thoughts. I'm sharing with you a few things that I gave away to my neighbors and teachers. To me, they are the most important people during the Christmas season. So I always make sure that I give something from the heart. Two movie tickets (card with pocket) to David's cello teacher
For the piano teacher-some lovely lotion treatment. I used the Young Deer and make my own wrapping paper with the Music Background.
Gift-giving
I colored one tree card and stamped a couple for my neighbors who have 4 young girls! I think they would love coloring their own !
For a girlfriend of mine (who is a busy physician herself), I am giving her this set of cards.
Card set
Some yummy treats for David's high school teachers!
Yes, I have been busy! Are you excited about Week 6 Cookie/Card Inspiration this Wednesday? It's my last one for this year! Hope you make time for it!

Virginia I love all the fun cards and hand made gifts you created for those extra special people who deserve them so much! I'm busy as a bee during this last week before Christmas and hope to catch week 6!:)

Happy Holidays to you and your family!

These are all so wonderful and what lucky recipients! Love the idea of stamping the cards and leaving ones without color for the children to color. Wonderful. Love seeing what you come up for Wednesdays treats.

They will be delighted to receive these fabulous gifts. I have all of my Christmas shopping done, except for teachers, speech and occupational therapists and the bus driver! I like the idea of giving tickets to the movie theater. I may have to steal that idea from ya! :)
