Great Gift, Fun Project

This is the cutest gift I think you can give someone. You don't even have to wrap it because it looks so pretty. I got the idea from Patty Bennett's blog.
Pretty, right? So you remove the belly band and inside you will find...

Three pockets! The top one is to hold some stamps. (yes those are old Christmas stamps!) The middle pocket holds note cards and the bottoms pocket holds the envelopes.

Four notes cards, four matching envelopes, stamps and a pretty pocket holder. Great gift, or what?

Pulling out the old stamps

This week I am focusing on pulling out some of my stamp sets that I haven't used in a while. Heartfelt Thanks is one of those sets. I have always liked that set and you can make just about any type of card with it. So here is what I came up with!

The colors I used were Eggplant, Certainly Celery and Rose Red. The colors look so pretty together. I think this was a CC on SCS a few weeks ago.

Enjoy! If you haven't entered to win the $10 SU! Gift Certificate, leave your comment today on that post!

SCS Color Challenge

Good Morning Everyone! It feels great to get my stamps out again and create.

Today Color Challenge on SCS was Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Real Red. I used my Priceless stamp set with the same ink as card stock.
The card is simple but cute. Hope you like it.

Father's Day Cards

Here are three Father's Day card for the kids to send to their Godfathers. To my surprise, these were easy to come up with! Sometimes cards for men can be a little challenging.

Hopefully these will give you some ideas to get started on your Father's Day or birthday cards for that special guy.

Don't forget to leave a comment on the Sunday Surprise post. You will be entered to win a $10 Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate!!
