For my mom, at Christmas, I made a very similar gift card greeting (she loves Panera), but I was in a rush to get it shipped out so I didn't take a pic, daggnabbit!

So, I made another one. You can prolly tell there's a Starbucks gift card inside.  Cuz, well, the gift of a nice hot cuppa is such a pleasant one. *grin*


I love these little paper sacks–I found 'em at Michael's in the gift wrap aisle.  They also come in white, but I'm especially fond of the kraft version.  Because I wanted to make a slider (when you pull on the ribbon, the gift card slides out), I trimmed off the end a little and then used a decorative border punch.I stamped it randomly in white pigment ink (and heat set, so I could continue working immediately) using the Leaf Trio I designed for A Muse–isn't it a lovely effect on the kraft?

I could not resist the new SU! birdie punch–seriously, the bird, the wing, AND the branch all in one punch?! *sweet*   A tiny chocolate pearl sticker serves as the perfect eye on her, too!

Instead of just one tiny tag, I put two.  I dunno why.  I just liked it.  I debated attaching the tags with some silver cording, and then I remembered I have these tiny cream colored safety pins, so I decided to try that.  And, guess what? I liked it!

Wouldn't this be a fab design for Mother's Day, birthday, thinking of you, get well, congratulations, etc.???!!!  I say YES!!! YES!!! YESSSSSSS!!!  (this is where ya'all look up at the waiter, and say, "I'll have what she's having!" — When Harry Met Sally) 

In other news of the day, I have a guest blogger article, that will be appearing at Scrapbook News and Review on February 12.  If you have time and are so inclined, I hope you'll pop on over, give it a read, and leave me a little comment love!  There will be pretty pictures. I promise. *wink*
