Getting ready for Christmas!

Hi everyone! Here to share another fun (and stamp lifted) idea from Splitcoast Stampers! These Gift Card Holders are just adorable! I am getting ready to sell them at my kid's school. We have a gift certificate program that allows us to purchase a gift card from hundreds of merchants, and in return for buying them through school, we earn percentages from each purchase. We have a choice to enrich the school, our classrooms as well as paying down our tuition bills (Catholic Schools!). So, here are a sampling of what I've been making. I am thrilled to showcase these here on my blog!

By the way, I got the most wonderful surprise from a lady in Texas whom I don't even know! Not only did Connie make my day, but I was feeling very blue, had a terrible head cold as well as getting my "." over the weekend and Sunday was my birthday! Needless to say, her kind words came at the best time. I guess the Lord Jesus knows what we need when we need it! Thanks again, Connie!!! Here is what she said:
Hi Michelle,

I saw your winning entry of the screen door cards in Country Woman magazine and just wanted to let you know I think they are adorable! I looked at your website and saw your other creations. You are very talented. And I admire you for being a Stay at home Mom. This world needs more of them.

From one artistic mom to another.

WOW! Talk about blown away!!! I almost cried! OK, so enough of my blabbering...here are my Gift Card Holders!

If there is a specific stamp or pattern you'd like more info on, please email me and I will be happy to give credit where credit is due (i.e. paper, rubber stamp company, etc.). Thanks!

Thanks for looking,
