~I-Top Blog Hop!! Fun gift ideas~

Good morning my HOPPY FRIENDS! :)

You know the Imaginisce i-top Blog Hop is running this week!!!!

I have a fun little gift projects today to share on this hop.
I love to make big wonderful elaborate gifts as much as the next person,
but let's face it...I have 3 kids, 10 chickens, a dog and a husband.
They inhibit my non-stop craftiness sometimes LOL
So I came up with this sweet and inexpensive gift for the acquaintance
or maybe a neighbor on your list.
Maybe even one of the hundred teachers
you have in your children's school.
A sweet handy ~COUTURE MAGNET SET~
That's right it's COUTURE ...Pinky Couture in fact!*wink* hehe
I used my awesome handy dandy i-top of course. And the magnet daddies,
(I love the hand made touch fabric gives these),
and the Garden Party embellishments for the holders.
These were fun, easy, and functional too~
You know you can win a brand new i-top prize plus a big prize
on Friday if you check in every day this week! :)
So go check out the next blog...

The next stop on this blog hop is...the amazing Melinda!

~Happy Tuesday and thank for hopping by~
~Pinky~
