Happy Polka Dots

Weird title, I suppose.
Except that it reminds me of my friend (and her birthday gift).
Polka dots. She likes them. Happy. She is.

She's a fun-lovin', bubbly, chipper, spitfire, full of energy kinda gal.
She would probably try to dispell that - or at least blame her creamerized coffee. ;-) And yes, I know...she's a normal person and probably isn't happy 24-7...but she's got a great outlook on life and it shows.
It makes me happy just to be in her company. :)
She has a great sense of humor.
She's uber-talented, a creative genious!

Greets with a hug (I love hugs!), and has a beautiful smile that lights up the room.

She listens. Advises.
We enjoy chatting/commiserating over creamerized coffee. :)
Did I mention she loves chocolate like I do? Yay!

As if all this weren't enough, there's something more - she's got depth too.
Did you know she's my sistah?
Well, not flesh and blood...we are Sisters in the Lord!  :)

Here's what I made for her Bday - Happy Birthday, Polka Dot Style (see - multi-functional title!) ;-)

Want to know a little more?

What IS that little box??  You know, the one that has a chocolate on top and says "All you need in life is a friend who has chocolate."

It's one of those items in my collection in the garage (much to hubby's dismay) for a someday I'll find a way to use this project. ;-)  YAY - I've used one!  Now I only have 20 billion more of them to use (jk)'s a little gerber baby food container, and I can't wait to show hubby this pic. ;-)

And what does that card look like on the inside?

It's actually a gift card holder and card all in one! :)

Well, what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by, and have a GREAT day (and weekend)! :)


  1. Love the polka dots gift card holder. Sounds like you have a great friend in your life. You sound like my husband; he likes to save things because he might have a use for them "one day".

  2. I love the gift card holder. You can never have too many of them in my opinion. Your friend sounds like a keeper! Great use for the container. I have a ton around. Now maybe I can find a use for them. TFS

  3. What a fab gift! Your sis sounds like an amazing person and I know she'll appreciate this =D

  4. Love it! What a way to re-use a container. I have a lot of those also. :)

  5. Great gift and card for your wonderful sis/friend. Sounds like she's awesome to meet and be around. Hope she has a great birthday.

  6. Your card and gift are very cute and cheery. TFS!

  7. This is awesome!! Great Job. TFS :)

  8. Crystal, this is awesome! Love that gift card holder and what a sweet way to reuse the container. The polka dots just wrap it all up perfectly. I'm sure your friend loved it! :)
