Gift Card Holder

This is a birtrhday card gift card holder. I made a similar one for my mom for Mother's Day and totally forgot to take a picture before we all wrote in the inside. So, I had to make another one. This is different than hers, but it's the same style. I'll be listing this one in my etsy store soon.

The belly band slides off so the card can be opened.

I followed this tutorial on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and even asked her permission to sell these at craft shows. Turns out, she didn't design it. She also said that normally you only need permission if you are going to submit (for publication) something you've made using someone else's pattern.

One T or two?


For the first time ever, I am attempting a sketch challenge. I often save sketches and work on them after the deadline, but I'm finally submitting one on time! I'm very excited.

Taylor has a cupcake challenge every Friday and I love her sketch this week.

Unfortunately, I don't have any cupcake stamps. That's why I decided to participate in the challenge--the winner gets two. And other fun stuff, too. I could have used another "sweet" stamp (ice cream or something), but for some reason, this is what popped into my head.

These just might be the exact opposite of a cupcake...

I found these stamps at a garage sale, along with two Memories ink pads, all for $2. Whoo hoo!

So, should "HOT" be with one 't' or two?! :-)
