Gift Card

Today is Wendy's birthday at SCS. She challenged us to make HER a birthday gift card or money holder. It had to have chocolate or cocoa, and one or more butterflies. I haven't made one of these in a long time! It looks pretty simple, and it is..........but I had an awful time this morning! I made the folder with no problem (crease and fold, then punch). the front had me stumped. I punched out tiny flowers in RED, and layered them with tinier flowers in white. I stamped on a green branch, and put the butterflies over a smudge on the top edge of the nestie, and one over where some tape pulled off a little of the white. I really hated it. I started over, and then it went right together. PHEW!

DH and I went for haircuts this morning.......his 50th reunion from HS is two weeks away, so we should be pretty spiffy by then. He suggested we go out to lunch, and so I said, "Well, I guess so" (LOL!!), so we are off. Check you out later today. Have a good one!
