Verve Project Parade

** If you're looking for the Paper Garden Holiday Garden Walk post, please scroll down! **
I've been following all the fun over on the Verve Project Parade and decided that I'd join in the fun since I had a gift to get ready for a friend that I'll be seeing tomorrow. I started with a mug that I got on clearance at Starbucks for $2.99 and added some coffee from Target's $1 spot and a few peppermint chocolate stir sticks (about $0.25 worth!). You know, it just occurred to me that my friend might read my blog.... hmmm.... well, at least she knows I'm frugal! ;-)

I don't have any Verve Christmas sets yet, so I pulled out my Because of You set and used the two flowers to make a poinsettia - which I layered on 2 Prima poinsettias and leaves. The Friend sentiment stamped in Navy coordinated with my cup and I added the red bow just cuz it was pretty!
Here it is, all ready to go...

Thanks for stopping by!!
