Glass Block Gifts
I try to make something for Russell's Sunday School teachers' gifts. Maybe because I am in there once a month and I know how hard it can be to still smile at the end of the hour? I really appreciate them and want them to know it. You all KNOW my wonderful Russell (yes I mean that) and what a handful he can be (boy do I mean that). Now imagine a class full of Russells!! Enough said.
With our epic snowstorm, church was canceled last weekend, which gave me just enough time to finish these and get them into bags. I know we'll see Miss Melinda at church tonight, and I hope Miss Amy will be there too, but if not, she's around the corner and I will drop it off. The Santa image is from Wandering Words, from the Holiday Mini. I had all sorts of plans to use this, but as my time ran out, I only used it for these gifts!
I stamped with Staz On after dabbing Lovely Lavendar, Brocade Blue, and Night of Navy in a circular pattern around my Barely Banana moon. The tree is from (what else?) Lovely as a Tree, and to get the perfectly circular moon I punched a 1-3/4" circle out of a post-it note for a mask, and used the circle opening left over to sponge the moon. Microbeads diffuse the light. It is hard to get a good picture, but these are really pretty sitting in a dimly lit room!
