Today's Video - Gift Card Holder

Hello, Crafters.

I have just posted my video showing how I made the Gift Card Holders I made for my June online customers.

This is the link: Gift Card Holder - see photograph at foot of this post.

I had my classes yesterday and as always, enjoyed a really good laugh!

The two cards we made were two of the cards I showed during my week 6 challenge - Using Embossing Folders.

The 3D project was the money bags I showed you yesterday (video will follow soon) but there was a surprise inside.

I'm going to make some of these as my Thank You gifts for my July online customers and send them with the surprise

Once they have all been sent out, I'll tell you what the surprise was!

Once my classes were finished and I had tidied up, I started to make a couple of money bags for my son LD's girlfriend who had invited us over for dinner last night.

In the bags, were some Allium and Yellow Poppy seeds from the garden.

Hubby remembered she had admired the flowers, which were really looking their best, when she visited us and he had promised he'd harvest some seeds for her when the time was right.

I also wanted to make a bottle sleeve for the bottle of wine we were taking over with us.

I had seen a tutorial and wanted to give it a go.

The photographs show our gifts.

I also gave her a Recipe Box I had made - colour co-ordinated with these two gifts.

We had a brilliant evening with great company and great food.

All in all yesterday was a really super day - thank you to everyone who contributed towards it!

Now I have to decide what I am going to do for Week 8 Challenge!

One of my friends has given me four suggestions to think about - thank you Veronica!

When I think about a challenge, if I can think of two ideas, I'll go for it.

It will mean the challenge is then for three more ideas.

If I can think of five ideas immediately, I don't go for it as I don't think it's a challenge!

At the moment I'm thinking about Veronica's first suggestion: One Die Used In Different Ways.

I have one idea at the moment, if I can come up with a second one by the end of the day, I'll go for it!

In the meantime, happy Sunday.

And until tomorrow, happy crafting!
