May WMS Blog Party! Appreciating Teacher!
Now I didn't remember that Claire had ANY teacher stamps in her sets - but in looking through my WMS stamps (I have them ALL!) - I found these two sentiments - in the Frame It Set!!! I just hadn't needed it before!
Free Spirit Boy and My Island??!! I sure did - and pulled them right off the rack knowing they were JUST what I was looking for - and then I saw the little pedicure pack in the perfect summer colors - and I just had to throw in these delicious looking Ghiradelli Dark and Sea Salt Caramel Chocolates!! (everyone wants a little bit of chocolate, right??!!)
Tim Holtz Alterations tag die on white card stock layered to black. I stamped the flowers in black, white embossed the circles, stamped the sun ray in Worn Lipstick and the palm trees in black. Then I sponged the top of the tag with More Mustard and the bottom with Stormy Sky - all to replicate the design on the flip flops. I tied a piece of black wrinkled seam tape through the hole in the top of the tag - sort of like the straps on the flips!
Then I popped all the treats in a pretty 5" x 10" round bottom sinamay net bag from Pouch Mart - tied it up and laced the tag through the tie string! Doesn't this make a nice looking gift for teacher??!!!! And since I don't have a teacher to give it to - maybe it will stay right here in my house......... I've been wanting to try that sea salt caramel.........
