Thought for the day -

Whew! It's also most Friday. I am counting the hours, lol. This has been a very hectic week.

Tonight after helping with homework I had to decorate Jordan's mailbox for his "friendship" party tomorrow. There's no school on Friday so his class is celebrating Valentine's tomorrow. Glad we got those cards done on the weekend!
I put together a little valentine gift for his teacher- actually a gift for the classroom. I love these glass craft blocks-they're so versatile. I made it so the opening is in the top for easy access. The vinyll expression is from Uppercase Living. They have some really cute expressions for teachers and this is the one Jordan picked out.

Then all I had to do was fill it with crayons. A kindergarten class can never have too many crayons, ya know! This glass block holds 240 of them!! I certainly hope we won't need to purchase anymore this school year.

I also managed to get in 1 card tonight. It was a real quick one-very simple design but I am
please with the look. This is for Kraftin Kimmie's challenge-which was to make a card using an animal stamp and ric-rac.

I've had this scottie stamp and punch forever but I still love them! They're both from Mary Engelbreit.
And that is it for today...I'm off to bed.
