Eastern Blooms Birthday

My youngest daughter has a Disco Birthday Party to go to tonight and I had no idea what to get her friend as it seems like they all have everything these days.

I decided to get a gift card and the Birthday Girl can get something she wants and will use. Sounds too easy but I know how hard it is selecting Birthday and Christmas presents for my own 4 girls let alone someone else’s that you are not sure what they like.

So to jazz up the gift card and make it a little more personal I decided I would make one of Makeesha’s MIM projects from a little while back and that is the Envelope Gift Card Holder.

My daughter told me the Birthday Girl’s favourite colour was blue so we went through my dsp’s and she selected the Bali Breeze paper so I added the Eastern Blooms set as well.

Here’s what we ended up with.

And here is the envelope open with the card.

Hi Nicole! What a cute set! No doubt the Birthday Girl will love it. Who wouldn't? Especially with a lovely gift card inside.

Thank you so much for your support of the Victorian Bushfire Appeal. With folks like you helping to spread the word, we're bound to raise lots of money to help the fire victims.

God bless,


That is so gorgeous, i may need to case that one if its ok with you:)
