It's time for our monthly CSS group challenge!! We're showing you gift card holders today using the March SOTM Just My Style ...... and it's going to be sooo much fun!
But first, let me tell you that I don't know what a gift card is. In other words, I've never received one. so if you have any extras, please send them to me -- then in future, I will have a reference point for a challenge like this one. that would be really, really nice of you .. ;)
But anyway, since it is my BFF's birthday today, and I wanted a place to put [my own version of] a gift card in, I used a recycled box (heee :) to dress up and tuck away the special thingy.
Believe me, it works just as well as any NORMAL gift card holder. it's just a different shape. (but didn't I just say that I don't know what a gift card [holder] is supposed to look like?) *shakes head in confusion*
See? there's a nice hidey-place for the gift card. Actually I wanted to give her a little ummm, money :) for her birthday (cos it's the best thing to do when you've forgotten to get a gift and there's no time left) ... but as I looked in my wallet, and in my drawer, and under the bed, and in the roof, I couldn't find any cash anywhere. *sigh* ... so I used a scrap of paper and wrote a gift card (a.k.a. redemption coupon) for the amount she could claim from me at a future date.
note to all peeps reading this: I am not a verrry good example, so don't save this idea to do it to your own BFFs.
The cutie sentiment is from Just My Style .. if you check out the set, you can see there's even a lovely $ sign to use on real, proper gift card holders. But since mine isn't, I didn't desecrate the stamp by using it.
Stashed-away-for-a-long-time flowers + trinket pin + felt + lace trim + stitching + tiny tag + scrunchy ribbon = deco for my gift card holder.
and I made a card to match:
These sentiments are from the Kind Deeds set -- I love their versatility and wide range of use for so many occasions -- the top and bottom line are separate stamps and can be mixed and matched with the others in the set.
Yesterday I splashed out in the rain puddles to the mailbox to get these goodies off to my friend for her b'day... I so hope the mail will be as reliable as they claim it is and she gets them today.
Okies then, hop on to these other ladies' lovely blogs and see what they've been up to, making for our group challenge......

And I have another card to share, with some new goodies I got from Emma's Paperie .. My Mind's Eye and Crafty Secrets all mixed in, and the sentiment from CSS ........ and the colorful bow was made with scraps of scrunchy ribbon. I love the rainbow hues! :)
last thing --- a peek at a project I'm working on but haven't completed. I'll show you more in a few days.
feelin' happy today.......
