Special Delivery Gift Can

LOVE the simply scrappin' kits! LOVE!! I got this can at Staples on the clearance rack. It's a bit taller than the Stampendous cans. The top of the can was stamped with the new label set from Gina K. Designs and punched out with the pink round scallop punch from Marvy. Man, I FREAKING love Festive Labels from Gina K.! Genius... that girl is a genius!

When I bought these cans, they had a little metal washer looking type thing hanging from the tag... I couldn't figure it out. Then, when I was taking it off to decorate the can, I realized they are to pry under the lid to pop it off! How cool is that? Of course, there were die cut stickers in the scrappin' kit to cover it and make it cute. Some of the die cut stars from the kit matched the star chipboard I had from Stampin'Up! How easy? I love cute and easy!

Of course, who needs coffee more than new parents? Had to whip up a gift card to hold a Starbucks coffee gift card. You can find the tutorial here for the gift card. I'm still working on matching thank you cards from the kit. I'll share those when I'm done.

So, I survived the MRI.. thanks for all the well wishes. It was really hard to be so still when you are in pain, but I closed my eyes and did not move. I don't think I've stayed in one position that long in forever. I got a break in between the back MRI and the hip MRI. Now, I don't go back until December 3rd... so it's more waiting. I can't tell you how much your comments and emails have meant to me... thank you!

Have a great weekend everyone!! Thanks for stopping by!

Cami, this is fantastic! I have a few different cans laying around. I never thought to use one of the many SSK I have!
Glad to hear your MRI went well. Sorry you still have a bit of a wait though. Hope they find out what is bothering you and can help deal with the pain soon!
