OMG, between my families and the hubbies, I've attended so many barbeques this weekend that I can do without barbeque for the rest of this year!!! And this is coming from someone who LOVES almost anything barbequed -- anytime! I don't believe I'm saying this but I'm barbequed OUT!!! LOL! But I've had a wonderful weekend with families and great friends! I hope you have too! I did manage to get some visiting in this weekend but not much crafting, so now I'm really-really ready to get busy!!!
Before I publish my project for today, I'd like to thank my cute friend Stacy for passing along to me another "Cherry On Top" Award. I am so honored to have been thought of again; thank you Stacy. Stacy is a sweetie and if you don't take my word for it, go visit her blog by clicking on her name above. You'll come away knowing I've told an honest truth.
Moving forward, over this weekend I'd thought several times about how I hadn't did a card box set in a while, so when I came in last night I sat down and did an all occasion gift card set; nothing fancy but it whetted my appetite to get one done. Here is the box which is held closed by a floral sleeve:
And here is the box set open to reveal the cards, envelopes, and the card and envelope compartments:
Like I said nothing fancy. The embellishment on the box sleeve and on the cards are actually the flowers that I cut off the leftover scraps from the paper pattern and outlined with stickles (oh yea, the dark brown accents are vinyl stickers). This set was done in less than 30 minutes -- so simple! Just paper and stickles! But because the paper is so elegant I think it made really very pretty "no work" card set, and will make a nice gift. Unfortunately, I don't remember where the paper comes from; I'll try to find the paper stack cover and let you know.
Well, that's it for now! I'm off to do more crafting!!! The hubby is out shooting golf balls, Buster is resting, and I'm going to take advantage of the quiet time! LOL!
I'll be seeing you... soon!!!
