SU Perfectly Preserved

Give Thanks to The Paper Players for their inspiration….

I think one of my favorite stamp sets in the STAMPIN’ UP annual catalog and the Holiday mini-catalog is the cute Perfectly Perserved. I guess it reminds me of my awesome mother! I made a little thank you gift for a special someone who deserves to be acknowledged…can you think of anyone in your daily or weekly life who could use a little pick-me-up?  This Paper Players Challenge #120 -Give Thanks entry could be it…

Carly turns 21…

I have been waiting to post this apron card made for my neighbor and my daughter’s college roomie, Carly, who turned 21 last week. Carly LOVES to bake and even made an apron before the fall semester started so I thought this card was perfect for her. Carly’s Aunt Diane  just slipped a gift card into the pocket on the apron front made with the  the pear paper and rick rack.


Here’s the inside of the card opened up:
