Volunteer Thank You Gifts

Every year our school has a Scholastic Book Fair run by our wonderful librarian!! I always offer to make the thank you gifts for the volunteers because I just enjoy doing it.  This year she had ordered these nice pens in gift boxes so I decided to decorate the boxes and make matching Post It Note Holders.  

You can find the "life" sentiment in the {ippity} set What Matters Most

The flower image is from the {ippity} set Friends+Flowers = Priceless

You can get all this {ippity} goodness at Aletha's {ippity} sales blog

Thanks so much for coming by!!

Blessings and Hugs,

Friends uplift the soul...

Just stopping by again to share another {ippity} card!! Remember Aletha's blog is the place to get {ippity}. 

My best friend, Melissa,(yes I know kind of weird that we share the same name) has been really helping me the last few weeks as I have been one stressed woman!! She helped me realize that a lot of my stress is being put on me by me!! This new set is just perfect for thanking her for always being my friend!!

The sketch came from last week's Splitcoast Stampers sketch. I just turned it on its side!! :-)

Here's the full {ippity} set  - time for....friends and wine.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge -
 Cuddly Buddy - make a card for your best friend

Get Hippity With Ippity Challenge #7

Just quickly stopping by to share a card I made for the new challenge at Get Hippity With Ippity Blog!! It's our Challenge #7 and it's a sketch!! Love me the sketches!! 

Have to admit when I first saw the sketch, I was a little stumped.  I'm just not a swirly person on my cards so I decided to switch it up. I went with the flowers I made using the My Favorite Things Die-Namics. I struggle to keep them together but I did it.  If you have any suggestions on how to keep them looking good please let me know in the comments. I'd really appreciate it!! 

So here's my card - 
I used the Flowers+Friends= Priceless set. You can find this wonderful set at Aletha's {Ippity} Sales Blog

All the papers came from the Taylored Expression May 2011 Key Ingredients kit!! I just LOVE getting this kit on my doorstep each month!!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges -
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sweet Stamps - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
