Gift Cards

I like small gift cards to go along with a gift bag or package. I really dont like the plain cards that
usually come with a gift bag. They match but... not really personal.

I decided to make a few to have around for myself and a few to sell on my online shops.
I choose a variety of all occasions.  Happy Birthday, Thank you etc etc...

I made the envelopes too. I used my Diagonal Score Plate from Stampin Up. Easy peasy!
(I am now addicted to making envelopes!! All sizes!!!)

I used  scrap pieces of  DSP paper and Card Stock from my scrap box and I used the Simply Scoring
Tool, Punches, Stamps, Ink, all  from Stampin Up!.

It was quick and easy.

I may just make some more!!

My daughter's Wedding

 My daughter Charlotte was married on April 7th. I must admit everything was perfect. We had so much fun. Her God Father performed the ceremony which really made it Special.
This is Charlottes second marriage and Roberts first.  She wore a champaign colored dress and the Groom and his Groomsmen vests matched the Sash on her dress.
 Charlotte and Robert planned and paid for the entire wedding!!! Charlotte even made the bouquets!
 (I made the Reserved Table Cards and Card Box and the Bridal Shower Invitations but that was it!)
Here is a sample of one of the placecards I made before I wrote the family names and the cupcake flavors.

My sister- in- law took these photos. We are waiting for the Professional Photos to arrive but in the meantime I wanted to share.

This is the father daughter dance.

Roberts dad took this photo. So Cool!  Robert is in the middle(of course). On the far right is our youngest son Erik

Like I said "It was PERFECT!!"
