Here's the project that I was working on over the holidays. It's a birthday present for my husband's aunt who seems to really appreciate the work that I put into my pieces. I wanted to make her something cheerful and useful and I thought that 3 x 3 gift cards would be great! She likes to give friends and family little tokens of thought and appreciation so these little cards might come in handy for her.
The SU! colours used are Bayou Blue, Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, and Kraft. I also got around to using up some of my Vanilla hodgepodge hardware and build-a-brads. The embellishments probably make these cards on the more expensive side but if I have it and it fits with the project what's the point of holding on to it? Anyhow I made 10 cards in all and a few were repeats. My favourites are the cherries and the ones with cross-stitching. (You can click on the pictures to get a better look)
Anyhow I hope she likes them as I much as I appreciate her. Hope all is well with you in your neck of the woods. In my home we are getting ready for the first day back to our pre-Christmas routine. School, spelling tests, music lessons, dance lessons but thankfully no swimming lessons. 4 days at the pool for me was just a little much. Instead we'll fit in a family swimming night once a week. Sounds like a better use of all of our time. I don't know about the rest of you moms and teachers but I could have used another week. I know this sounds strange but I would love to have Winter break as opposed to Summer break as I would love to hibernate in the middle of winter when there's less day light time.
