Thank you - Card No. 6

Hello! ... is Thursday again. New card! Here it is:
Thank you - Card No. 6
(gift card holder)
-
-
I used two stamps for the focal point. "Thank you" is from Stampin' Up and the one around it is from Inkadinkadoo. The blue ink is from ColorBox and the ribbon...I don't know :) I think it came from a gift bag or something like that :)
-
If you slide down the ribbon, the card opens up and it has a pocket to place a gift certificate or a picture. This is what the inside of the card looks like.

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July eveyone :)
-
Today has been a good day. It is Sunday...church day! and it is 4th of July which means that there was a special at church. I love specials! The praise and worship team and choir of Tree of Life Church sang a few freedom songs including the National Anthem. It was awesome!
My husband was a part of it. He did great. I am so pround of him.
God is so good and his blessing are endless :)

We may not get the chance to go see the fireworks at the park tonight. I will post later about it if we do decide to go, but I would like to share with you a picture I took last year on 4th of July. It is of my son watching the firework. I think is pretty cute :) It was the first time that I was able to get an OK shot of fireworks. I would love to figure out how to take better pictures at night.
I just need to practice...I know :)

You've blessed my life in so many ways

You've bless me in so many ways - Card No. 4
I am happy again now that I had a chance to make a new item for my blog. I need to set up a day to create things and upload them so you can see them. Right now I think it will be on Thursdays.
-
I love making cards. I have always loved to make things and give them away. I rarely keep anything for myself :) I have made things, from cards to mini albums to polymer clay jewelry to melting glass. How many things have I kept?... maybe an average of one per category. If you ask my family...hey have many of each :) I love giving stuff to people!
-
So today's card is a gift card holder. Believe it or not, I made it from scraps of paper I had left from a couple of other cards. I wanted to make something small, quick and simple, so this is what I ended up with. Hope you like it!
-
This is a pic from what the inside of the card looks like.
The stamp I used says: You've blessed my life in so many ways Thank you. So, I inked the first part for the outside of the card and then the "Thank you" part for the inside.
-
This was also the first time I had used white core cardstock to fold the card and I don't think I like it. I may use it to embelish something or for a scrapbook pages :)
-
This is it for now.
Please leave a comment.
Let me know if you have any questions about Card No. 4
