So here goes...
Some friends of ours watched our animals and house while we were away in Colorado to watch our daughter get married. (I will be posting pictures of this as well soon) I wanted to give them something for doing that and they wouldn't accept cash. I know they like to watch movies so I came up with a "movie night" container. I've seen a few different ideas out on all my fantastic blogs that I follow and came up with my own version. I did not have a tin like most everyone uses, but I have collected a bunch of these plastic containers I get from work for free. Free is always a good thing and by using these I am also doing my part in keeping up with the "green" affect. I will fill the container with 2 packages of microwave popcorn, 2 movie sized candies, and I am including a gift card so they can rent a few movies and have a great evening at home together. After they have used the items, they can then use the container to put their loose change in and save for another "movie" night. I know how expensive it can be to go to the movies so I thought at least this way the container can be kept and reused again and again...Still going for that "green" affect. Great idea huh?

My friend Lisa lost her grandma last week and I wanted to make her something to cheer her up.
The desk set is in purple (her favorite color and mine so that was easy to work with). The Post-it note holder has her name vinyled. The pen/pencil jar has her name etched on it. The glass globes are magnets spelling her name in vinyl. The clip is to hold a memo or picture. I also vinyled a little basket with her name but do not have a pic yet. I will try to upload some more tonight or tomorrow. I embellished all the items with the "mini prima roses" I made. I have to say I wish I had a desk to put this on.
I hope you enjoy and have a great day.

I got this svg file from http://scrappedlives.nl/ She has some fabulous files to download and she does wonderful work. Anyway, one of my friends is in love with cows, so I made this card for her. It's very simple, but I just loved the cow and I wanted that to be the focal point. Thanks.
Education, Mother and Learning are etched. The other words and flourishes are cut out with my cricut on black vinyl. The mirror will hang with black and white ribbon. Hope you like it.
