Gussied Up.....


Later on today ... as I stated in my post awhile ago I will be getting all gussied up to attend the reception of a lovely young couple.... I really wanted to share just one more of the many little one pocket brown paper bag cards I make to place the gift of money in... This is the fifth one I have made for gifts this summer... They are just a lovely card for placing money gift into and then they have a keepsake for keeping special dates in... The wedding related ones I think are great for anniversary dates to be remembered and they are pretty displayed or laying on a desk.... I so enjoy making them.....Also... the person that recieves the gift have really enjoyed them.... I receive many comments.... I have just about completed a tag I will share with you in the next couple days also..... Have a blessed and wonderful weekend....
Oh no another PS.... I just noticed in the pic I had layed the 4 antique buttons on the plate, in the process of getting my camera... that I am going to sew on a little black jacket I am going to wear over my sundress later today.... only proving I cannot multi-task like it use to be... Another part of acceptance.... Well they do look rather pretty in the pic anyways....

What a great idea to make your own cards and very creative. The card looks really nice and professionally done. I can definitely see why many people would want to keep them for keepsakes. Have fun getting all gussied up for the reception.

I really like your paper bag cards. I made a birthday book for my Mom's 87th birthday. I did a post on it, if you want to see it. Also, when you get a chance, stop by my blog, I have an award for you.
