Good Morning :)
Happy Sunday to you all - though I must admit, I'm not all that happy. I head back to work tomorrow after a FABULOUS vacation with my family this past week. We went to a place called Rocking Horse Ranch. It was PERFECT weather - and just fabulous -- the cousins all got along great, and the adults had time to catch up a bit, and RELAX!
I'll be posting a few pics later in the week, but for now, onto business!
My Time Made Easy is releasing lots of new goodies today - including some fabulous cut files, like the one I've used for my card today. It's a purse shaped gift card holder, called Purse-onality.
My neighbor was nice enough to water our tomato and cucumber plants, and check our mail all week, so I wanted to do a little something for her. I went out and got her a Dunkin' Donuts GC so she and the family (she has 4 boys!) can enjoy a little breakfast on us -- or, she could just treat herself to a few lattes ;).
I used this great purse pattern paper from Shopping Shirley's Sweethearts' Paper Bag, but once again, I'm picky, and I wanted to personalize it just a weeeee bit more. I changed up the chocolate that was around the diamonds, and made it orange - to tie in the orange on the GC. (I will try to work on a tutorial to show you how I typically do this, if there is interest :) )
The sentiment and the frame around it were made using Money Well Spent. Let me tell you -- this set is just FANTASTIC!! I love the little game controller, and the shopping cart -- if you get this set, it's definitely Money Well Spent *wink*.
Now for the inside... I got a little overzealous, and folded the inside where I *thought* it should be, trying to show my DH what it was all about -- (silly me) and realized after the fact that it was in the wrong place, but I made it work :). I again used the frame image, and put the inside sentiment, and also included the dollar amount of the card.
Thanks for stopping by today -- be sure to stop by the rest of the team's blogs (links are in my sidebar) and show some love!!
Dawn and Geny will unfortunately not be playing along today -- but you should stop by and show some love anyway -- who can't use a little sunshine in their day???
