Another gift card holder....

This one is for our tax guy! He is a friend of the family and does our taxes for us. We wanted to get him and his wife something to try to get them out from under the paper pile (hence why I chose this Gruffies image!!!) You can get a HUGE selection of Gruffies, House Mouse & Happy Hoppers from Simon Says Stamp (sentiment is also from Simon Says!). The gift card holder I got from Taylored Expression - very easy to add an image to and embellish - VOILA - instant gift!!!! LOVE IT!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hang in there!

This is a new image from Karen's Doodles, called Hang in there Possum. Cute eh? I made a really simple layout on an A2 card since the image was quite large (I always do will learn one day!!!) I coloured them with Copics and added the sentiment from a set from Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for "hanging"out with me!!! LOL

Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog - Alter Something

At Incy Wincy Designs Challenge blog, we would like you to ALTER SOMETHING!!! Take something that had a use before (i.e. old coffee can, jar, bucket, etc) and alter it....make it something different and NEW!!!!! I took an ugly old notebook I got in my stocking a few years ago and made a cute new notebook. I used the FROG from Aspire To Thrive Children's Charity and a sentiment I have had FOREVER!!!! Never thought I'd use it, but it is perfect for this little notebook!!! I have had the little frog eyelet for a really long time too!!! The paper was just in my scraps bin.

Head on over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has altered for you!!!!! I hope you will join us!!! You can win a $10 voucher to spend at Aspire to Thrive Children's Charity store!!!
