Gift Card Holder Birthday Card

I made this card for my sister-in-laws birthday. This year we decided to give her a couple gift certificates so I needed a card that would hold a folded 8.5 X 11 inch piece of paper. We printed out a certificate so it was on a full sheet of paper. So this card is a full sheet of paper (8.5 X 11) folded in half. I wasn't used to filling up that much area on the paper so I used some Sizzix balloons and designer paper. Since yellow is my favorite color I HAD to use that! I think the front turned out pretty nice.

Inside the front cover I added a small pocket to hold the Outback gift certificate. Very cute, and the paper matches the yellow on the front of the card.I adhered the gift card holder at the bottom inside corner of the card. It was very cute and she loved the idea.
Thanks for looking.

Almost Back to Normal

Computers can be your best friend or your worst enemy!! My husband got the demons out of my pc and is working on getting everything loaded again. PHEW, he has been working so hard at finding disks to load and helping me remember what programs I used the most. Not quite done yet, but I'll be there soon.

Another Cuttlebug Card Swap

I love getting involved in card swaps on SplitCoast Stampers!! This is is one of my creations (very similar to a couple of my other cards) for a My Favorite Card Swap. For this one, I had to create 2 sets (different cards) of my favorite cards to swap with others. This one is so easy that it definitely is my FAVE!!! Gotta love the cuttlebug embossing folders!

This is my second set of cards. Since I had the cuttlebug folders out this was my second set of faves. The snowman had some extra details to work on but I love this little guy! There are dimensionals under the snowman to help POP him off the page.

Thanks for looking.

Have a great day.

Cool Table Fort for the Kiddos

Found this great idea for my kids to play in! Jennifer at HOPE STUDIOS shared this excellent idea that she created to keep the kids busy.

It looked so easy to do that I thought it would be great for my guys too. I had the rope lights because I found them in my mess in the basement!
Used my hot glue gun to adhere the little hooks to the underside of our dinning room table. That was more work than expected, it was a little difficult to lay on my back and do that! Be warned if you want to make this type a fort!

My table is not suitable for pictures, so I didn't take a picture of my creation. Both my kids have a good time creating an imaginary land under the table.
Thanks to Jennifer for sharing the idea.
