Thank You gift

I have a thank you gift idea to show you today.  I purchased these Lindor Truffle bags from our Dollar Tree.  There is 3 truffles in the bag for $1.00.  I have to admit that I purchased all that the store had.  I knew I would use them someway. Such a nice little gift to give away.  The topper is from Digital Delights and I think she is just adorable.  She is called Gingerbread Topper she is part of a 4 character set called Christmas Toppers #2.  This turned out so cute I will probably be making more to give away.  They are just so fun.

Life's short...

Usually I'm not real chatty about my projects and cards but I have to chat this one up.  I had so much fun making this.  I made this as an ornament that could be hung on the Christmas tree. I used my sewing machine to sew on the pocket and across the top to hold the ribbon in place so it will hang on the tree.  I printed the coffee cup on coordinating paper so very little time was spent coloring.   In the little pocket will be a gift card for a local coffee shop.  My thought was to make this for one girlfriend that is a coffee nut but, I had so much fun making this that several people are going to be getting one of these cuties males and females.  The coffee cup and perfect sentiment are from Doodle Pantry, the set is called Coffee and Biscotti. This project came together so quickly and was well worth the time.  I know several people will enjoy this as a gift.

Fundraiser digital stamp sets

Have you heard of Operation Write Home?  You can find out all about this wonderful organization by clicking on their name above.  Laurie at Doodle Pantry and made two brand new digital stamp sets.  She is selling them together right now for only $5.00 and she is donating 70% of the sales back to the OWH organization.  For my card the Lion is from the With Heart set and the sentiment is from the Missing You set.  At OWH they say they need to receive more "missing you" cards, so that is what these sets are aimed for.  They are both so cute and you will want them both.
