To all my blogger friends - wishing you a wonderful, prosperous, happy, and healthy 2014 !
As I sit here by my crafting space heater with 5 inches of beautiful, sparkling snow outside, I just keep looking at our pictures from last week on Anna Maria Island in Bradenton, Florida and think of the warm beach weather we left behind. So I thought I'd send some warmth your way by sharing a few pictures of the grandsons at the beach. We had a wonderful Christmas with my mother and sister's family who live near there in Sarasota. I hope your Christmas was filled with warmth and family too!
We saw dolphins playing near the beach almost every day - it was so much fun!
And now I'd like to share some gift card boxes that I finished shortly before we left. The boys' gifts we shipped via Amazon but the adults always get gift cards when we go - so much easier to pack!
I used the directions on Splitcoaststampers for the gift card boxes and a variety of Recollections, Teresa Collins, and DCWV cardstock packs that were on sale at Michael's at 60% off. They were a nice heavy duty DP that lent itself to making boxes. And the chocolate kisses inside are a nice surprise too.
And since we'll be having 6 more inches of snow on Sunday, I know I'll be crafting away, so see you soon!
