Chai Gift Cards


Today  last year I had an idea.   I dug out some card stock from my stash.


I headed over to The Graphics Fairy and had a look at her labels.  Thanks again Graphics Fairy.

  I found one that had tea
 written all over it...
"Galon de Coton" means "Drink Tea and Enjoy!"
Don't read this Magali or Heathers' daughters.  
(I am pretty sure they don't speak
  French in the same dialect as I do!)


  I downloaded it, modified it to make it personal,  and printed four per page.
 I tore the labels with a ruler into equal sizes as  I didn't want the edges to look cut. (Actually my scissors were nowhere to be found.) 


  I sewed each one  onto a piece of cardstock


I grabbed another piece of cardstock, and sewed it onto the back, so that  I formed an envelope with a label on the front. 


Two holes were punched in the top.


 My homemade Chai was put into plastic bags from the dollar store and each card was tied with some ribbon.   To see my chai mix recipe, click H E R E !

Now I don't have to sit and hand write a whole lot of cards.




People who speak French know to drink tea and enjoy.....

Cheers!

A Christmas Ornament Exchange and a Poem!

   Vicky from  "Life on Willie Mae Lane"  sent me these wonderful gifts!!
 She was also the one who coordinated this amazing exchange!  So much work.  Thanks Vicky.




Twas the night before gift exchange and all through the mail.

 Canada Post was still acting like  Silly Old Snail.
The packages  tied up with many a bows
And with all that excitement I stubbed my old toes.


With bells and buttons and ribbons and candy
I realized Vicky was more than just handy!
AWE!!

With wine glasses made into beautiful globes
They looked so fantastic  hanging in my abode.


With  beautiful Joy and a tree  full of glam
I looked for my scissors and saw a snowman

So cute.


A big jar of candy that brings such delight
and to all of my Bloggy Friends I wish you  goodnight!




Thank you Vicky!
Check out all the fun we had over at here at
Life On Willie Mae Lane
So thoughtful and so much fun!
Cheers.
