TGIF - THANK GOODNESS IT'S FRIDAY!! AND UPCOMING BLOG HOP

HI Y'ALL.  WHAT A WONDERFUL MORNING THIS HAS BEEN.  IT IS OVERCAST SO IT HAS NOT GOTTEN TOO HOT YET HERE IN HOT AND HUMID OL' HOUSTON.  SO I GOT SOME THINGS DONE OUT IN THE GARDEN I WANTED TO DO.  MY SEEDS ARE ALL SPROUTING - YELLOW SQUASH, ZUCCHINI, BANANA PEPPERS, YARD LONG GREEN BEANS.  AND MY JALAPENO PEPPERS HAVE ABOUT 16 LITTLE BITTY PEPPERS JUST STARTING TO GROW ON EACH BUSH.  SO LIVE IS GOOD HERE.  HOW ARE YOU DOING?

I MADE SOME CUTE THINGS FOR MY GRAND DAUGHTER, KAYLEIGH, FOR HER 12TH BIRTHDAY.  IN OUR CHURCH, TURNING 12 IS A VERY BIG DEAL!!  IT IS WHEN THEY NO LONGER HAVE TO GO INTO THE CHILDREN'S CLASSES, BUT ARE NOW YOUNG WOMEN AND YOUNG MEN AND HAVE THEIR OWN CLASSES GEARED TO THEIR AGE.

AMONG OTHER THINGS WHICH I CANNOT SHOW YOU UNTIL SHE RECEIVES THEM TOMORROW, I MADE HER THIS CUTE LITTLE NOTECARD ON A CHAIN.  I USED MY BIG SHOT AND THE FLOWER BIGZ DIE (SEE THE CLEARANCE RACK FOR THE GREAT PRICE ON THIS OF ONLY $7.99!!) AND SOME STIFF CARDBOARD FROM PACKAGING.  I USED DECORATIVE PAPER TO COVER THE CARDBOARD FRONT AND BACK, THEN USED CARD STOCK IN SOME FUN IN COLORS  FOR THE INSIDE NOTES.  HOPE YOU LIKE THIS SIMPLE BUT FUN GIFT.


HERE IS THE FRONT WITH THE DSP ON TOP OF THE THIN CARDBOARD PACKAGING.  I ADDED A CUTE DIE CUT "K" AND A CUTE BUTTON FOR THE FRONT.

 NOW I HAVE IT OPENED SO YOU CAN SEE THE CARDSTOCK NOTES INSIDE THE LITTLE PAD.  ISN'T THIS A CUTE GIFT?  I HAVE TO RUN TO MY CRAFT STORE TO GET THE KEY RING INSTEAD OF THE RIBBON I USED TEMPORARILY.

FOR AN ADULT, THEY CAN CLIP IT TO THEIR PURSE HANDLE OR THEIR KEY RING.  FOR THE CHILDREN, THEY CAN CLIP IT TO THEIR BACKPACK, PURSE OR KEY RING.

I HAVE LINKED IT UP TO THE "MINUTES FOR ME" BLOG LINK AT http://marciascraftysewing.blogspot.com/2012/04/minutes-for-me-linky-party-15-every.html
SEE WHAT ELSE OTHERS HAVE COMPLETED THEMSELVES, OR LINK ONE OF YOUR COMPLETED ITEMS THERE AS WELL!!

WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER GLITTER QUEEN'S BLOG HOP APRIL 25 - 27 TO SHOW YOU SOME MORE FUN AND CRAFTY IDEAS.  COME BACK TO VISIT OFTEN AND ESPECIALLY THEN, OK?

HERE'S TO INKY FINGERS Y'ALL!!
