Here I used an ornament stamp from Verve, but doesn't it make a cute tag?

Warmest Wishes for the Holidays!
I was doing a lot of blog hopping this past weekend and ran across another stamp company that was new to me! (I know, just what I need!) Anyhow, Flourishes, was the company that I happened upon and they were having a super fun challenge. The challenge is to create a card that is inspired by the song, These are a Few of My Favorite Things (click on the title to see the challenge details). Well, this got my wheels spinning! My first thought was "what a fun and creative challenge", and then, "I think I might need some new stamps". After this find I found another challenge at Verve Stamps this week for homemade gift items. This is how these darling milk cartons from My Timeless Templates by Lauren Meader began. I plan on making up a number of these filled with a packet of hot chocolate, cookies and a candy cane. Won't they make a cute little token gift for those people in your life that just bless you in small ways, like the secretaries at my kids' school or my favorite cashier at the grocery store who I will wait twice as long to check out just to get a chance to say "Hi". Well, you get the jist. The best part about these little packages is that it goes to show you that there is room in this industry for lots of companies. I used stamps from Close To My Heart, Papertrey Ink, Verve Stamps, Martha Stewart, and when I get one from Flourishes, I'll use that, too! If you are still reading this, to you I say, "Thank You" for hanging in there with me! You are one of those people who blesses me in small ways! This is the one that started it all. I was inspired by the phrase "Warm Woolen Mittens" from the song, My Favorite Things. I used CTMH's Just for the Holidays.
