Giddy-Up and Go!

It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for another FANTASTIC
Just Inklined Blog Hop!!!
You should have arrived here from our talented Joyce's Blog.
Heidy is our hostess and she wants us to make something that can be given as a gift FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!! I stressed the Christmas part because you will soon see that I totally over looked that part of the theme. I am afraid I will be getting a "needs improvement" on following directions. I know my kids will laugh when they read this because I always stress this point on test days. "Always read the directions thoroughly".
My gift will be given to a poor soul who is feeling poorly on Christmas. Lol



I love the Holidays and cooler weather, but that always means one thing.....
The cold and flu season is upon us and there are a lot of sickies out there. Believe me, we have had our share in my house. I made this little gift bag to put hot tea bags, cough drops, peppermints, tissues, medicine or anything really to help someone feel better when they are feeling a little under the weather. They are so handy to have around for loved ones.



The image I used is called Gee Up Neddy. You can find it in the NEW SHOP at Just Inklined . HERE
From here you are going to want to head on over to our fearless leader Jak's blog. I am sure she has something spectacular to share with you. I am also sure that it will also be Christmas themed. She is very good at following directions.
Thanks so much for joining us. Hope you go away with a little inspiration. Happy Crafting!!!


The order of the hop this month is:

You are tooooo funny. I do the same thing with my students and I'm a teacher and I have pulled the same "faux-pa" as you. I too have been working on Get Well cards due to the cold weather season setting in and I TOTALLY love your card and need to check out this image and CASE your card. What I also like is the bag...so you can put a little medicine treat in it. I too am from SC....Greenville.

Okay by me that you didn't thoroughly "read the directions." I think your project is great and it gave me a good laugh! Cheryl W

Crafty_Kitten said...

Great gift bag idea. The image should really cheer someone up (especially with goodies inside..lol). I am one of the "read the instructions afterwards" people so can fully understand what you did.
