My Pink Stamper just announced a Christmas Card Challenge. I was so excited about this since I wanted to execute an idea I have been brewing up. Most of all I am thrilled I get to kill two birds with one stone! That is sooo my kind of project!
Both my girls are in gymnastics and we just adore their coaches. It takes a special person to want to take on the challenge to teach a 2 and 3-year-old how to jump, tumble and balance… I call it “herding cats”. Because of that I wanted to do something a little more than just give them a card or a “homemade treat”. I decided that I will give them both Starbucks gift cards during the holiday. They are both young college students that are being fueled by the sweet nectar of energy, so I figured they would appreciate a holiday theme gift card-card screaming a blissful cup of joe!
So not only did I come up with a fun card, I made two of them and now I am done with that “holiday to-do” WAY ahead of schedule! Yay!
Thanks for coming and having a piece of “killing two birds with one stone” pie with me!
