Gift Card Holder and a reminder

TGIF!!  It's Friday and that usually means I have a Foodie Friday post for you.  I'm actually going to save that for next week because....there's going to be a HUGE May Arts Ribbonista Blog Hop next week.  Each of the Ribbonistas has been assigned a day (about 5 per day so that you don't have to spend a ton of time trying to get to each blog).   Each of us has a project planned but it was up to us to choose so there will be surprises for everyone!  Of course there will be giveaways so be sure to stop by!

This weekend is the birthday of both my MIL and my SIL.  They share a birthday tomorrow.  My MIL will be 100 years old!!  I can only imagine all that she's seen in her lifetime..from horse and buggy to the internet!  Amazing.

Hubby and his sister are planning a special party for her but we didn't want to forget that it's also his sister's birthday.  She's a little more than a decade older than he is so we thought the best thing might be a gift card to a favorite restaurant.  I created a little non-Christmasy gift card holder for her.  These are so simple...just a half sheet of cardstock scored at 2 1/2" and 6 inches.  Fold, attach the ends of the bottom fold with some Scor-Tape or other strong tape and decorate away. 

Since he's hand carrying the holder, I went with a bumpy fun felt flower.  The smudgy color on the yellow is actually on the designer paper itself..  I do wish I had put the two words closer together but tired eyes prevailed and I didn't catch it in time.  I overstamped in grey ink to create the shadow. 

To create the little doily under the flower, I cut a 4 inch paper doily into fourths, then glued 2 pieces together so that the ends came together.  I crinkled them up a bit and used some Chai ink to soften the white.

Don't forget that tomorrow is the drawing for the Blog Candy!  There's a link on the right sidebar to the post you need to comment on for a chance to win.  I've also included some May Arts ribbon so be sure to get in on the fun.

Thanks for stopping's time to bake the cookies!!!
