Warm Wishes!

Today I get to go help out in Dude’s class room with the cuties and they get to go to Santa’s Secret Shop and pick out presents for their family right in school! What a cute idea the school has! Chicka did it last year (and will with her class on Thursday) and she was SO proud of the presents she got to pick out herself and bring home already wrapped to put under the christmas tree! Its to teach the kids about money and budgeting and thinking of others. I’ll be there when Dude picks his out but I’ll pretend not to see ๐Ÿ™‚ They have helper parents that work just the shop so maybe it’ll still be a secret.ย 

This lil penguin card reminds me of those kids tomorrow, happily trotting home with presents for their parents and siblings. TOO CUTE! He’s from the Deck the Halls Tobie Clear Stamp set and he’s colored with copics. The papers are a mix of Bazzill, AC, Echo Park and MME (I believe. They came from my scraps.) Mr Penguin was stamped with Memento on XPress It and colored with Copics: C1, C3, C5, C7, BG70, BG93, Y32, Y35, Y28, E41, E42, E43, BG23, BG32, BG34, BG45, BG 49, BG72.

Wish me luck today! The kids, while super adorable, are quite a handful! Love them to bits though!ย  :eeep:

    Such a cute card! You will have to do a scrapbook LO with this little guy about the shopping day. ( You did take a camera with you, right? I always forget mine.)
    Hope you have fun with all the little people. I have a little three year old great niece here with me and just one little person keeps me hopping! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I took my phone at least but forgot to take a pic while I helped him shop :< but I did get one when he was helping the lady wrap so that can go in the December Daily at least. I took 6 kids down and the class had 12 today. I'm more tired than they are I bet!

    Hey Kristy! My kids’ school does the Santa Shoppe too and I love it when they bring home their “scores”, as they call them. I guess they’ve heard mom talk about her artsy “scores” from the store! I think these little presents and the stuff they make are the best.

    I love your li’l penguin dude! he’s adorable and you are absolutely right! He DOES look like the kids running home with their “scores”! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Scores! How CUTE! It was really fun to see what Dude thought people would like. At least I got to influence my pressie, though he did pick it out first XD

    What a cute card! The school I work at has a Santa Shoppe too, it is so much fun for the kids and I usually volunteer to be one of Santa’s elves (the wrappers of the gifts). It is one of my favorite memory of the holidays!
