Quick Gifts!

Happy Saturday everyone! My post will be short today as my mom and sister are in town for the weekend (no post tomorrow, sorry, but will return on Monday)!! We had a ton of fun last night at Comedy Night--I laughed my butt off!! And the best part was my kids didn't call us at all to complain about each other---ahhhh, peace reigns at the Dean household for a few hours, ROFL!!! (If you know how my 2 children fight, you would TOTALLY understand)

Make sure and head over to Jen's I{heart}2stamp blog today for her Sketch For You to Try. My sample as her guest designer this month is all about "giving thanks". Check it out and try the sketch if you can and let me know what you think of my card too!!

Anywhoo, I made these notecard sets for a good friend of mine and another set for my mom (3 of each design w/ matching stamped envies). I wanted something that was elegant but quick to put together cuz' I don't like making multiples of anything, I'm kinda ADD like that--I like to move on to the next project, lol! All of these stamps are from Inkadinkado (Autumn Foliage and Winter Birds)--I got mine at Michael's but my friend Marti sells them at her shop Pez-a-doodles and you can also get them at 7 Kids College Fund.

The dp used for all of them is from SU's new designer prints--I'm especially loving Baja Blue (since they got rid of soft sky, sigh....)! I used my Fiskars threading water border punch to make the scalloped edges. I colored the fall notecards with my Copics and added some stickles. The blue one has diamond stickles and the red notecard has stickles and I used a gold Krylon pen in the flower centers. The sentiments are from PTI's "Holiday Wishes" and "First Fruits"(note: the fall cards have a thankyou and a happy autumn greeting). I also stamped the envies w/ a matching stamp to dress them up a bit.

Just an elegant set of holiday notecards that are not hard to put together for someone. I know my mom and friend will love them and hope you do too.

Hope ya have a great weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday (gasp...I'm taking the day off tomorrow)!! BTW, I got all my new PTI goodies yesterday so I can't wait to play, hee hee!
