Racing against the clock....part 2

yup...STILL trying to get things together in preparation for the Holidays! 

This afternoon, I watched one of my neighbors granddaughters 
 do something really nice again for another neighbor! It is so nice to see someone do someone a kindness just because. She so inspired me, so I wanted to leave her a small gift on her porch from 'Santa' with a note!

I quickly filled an empty bottle with holiday M&M's, and colored and attached this tag. I placed it atop a note from Santa, rang the doorbell and ran! The note from 'Santa' said that he was so proud to see what a nice girl she has been - including carrying in those groceries for a neighbor and getting the mail for her on Monday. He also encouraged her to share her candy with her brother and cousin too! The fabulous tag is from Stitchy Bear Stamps - this months sponsor for the Pile It On Challenge! Doesn't it ROCK!?!
