Last Minute Birthday Gift

Hi There!
I had to come up with a last minute Birthday present for a great Aunt today. I completely forgot about her birthday so I had to make due with what I had in my stash! It was actually a good exercise for me since I tend to go out and buy new things (sometimes duplicates of items I already have) without checking out my stash first!

Here is what I came up with....she is 83 and loves to send cards and notes to EVERYONE! So I thought I would make her a set of (24) cards and envelopes. No email for her! Although she does keep up with things on TMZ!! :) She is one of those ladies that has EVERYTHNG and I never know what to get her. I will add a gift card for Starbucks since she goes in there frequently for her caffeine "fix".

Thanks for looking!

I'm Baaaaakkkkk!

Hi There!
So sorry that I have been missing for so long! I have been fighting a case of walking pneumonia and it has really kicked my butt! Feeling much better these days and excited to get back into "the zone."

Anyhoo.....I'm going to be working on Craft Show stuff and will start posting those in the next few weeks! YES! I like to get a start on things early so I don't have to lock myself in my craft room for weeks on end during the holidays! That kind of takes the fun out of everything...right?

This is a card that I made for my Mom for Mother's Day and I also sold a ton of them at my spring craft show. Cased the idea from HERE. My mom is a huge pansy lover so I had to go to my "supplier" Betty to order all the SU stuff! If you want a great tutorial for making the flower pot cards, try HERE.

Thanks for looking! I'll be back soon with more items!
