For the girl that has everything

I love gift giving and finding just the right gift for the receiver.  For the most part, a large part of Canadian's have wants over needs and the dilemma becomes giving a gift that a person will like and use.  It becomes even more of a challenge when people can readily purchase most things that they want.  So what do you do for the girl who essentially has everything?

Of late, I tend to do gift cards for a store that they love but I also like to give something small with it.  I will be celebrating a friend's birthday in the next week and I have come up with my small something.  It is something that my friend uses and need... cards.

I am going to make a bundle of 5 cards for various occasions.  I often make cards from the product scraps of layouts that I am working on (less to clean up and a good way to use up scraps). Since I have been scrapping with Pebbles this week and have lots of scraps sitting on my table, it naturally became the product of choice.  Here is my first installment card:

Supplies: patterned paper, chipboard, dimensional stickers (Pebbles), punch (Fiskars), ink (Colorbox), jewels and thread (miscallaneous)
I used the Floral Lane papers, chipboard and dimensional stickers for this one.  I really like the texture of the Floral Lane papers.  They are quite lovely.

Look for more cards to appear on my blog over the next week or so.

TTFN,
