I have shared so many times how grateful I am to my customers and those in my team, I make a special point of trying to surprise and delight them with a card or a little 3D gift. Back in May I decided a practical gift was in order so each received one of these tiny note pads on a little ring.
Today the USA celebrates its independence from Great Britain, a time for family, friends, food (mainly BBQ’d) and the odd foaming peevo! Normally it would be a hot sunny July day here in North Texas, however we were woken up by huge thunderstorms and rain at about 5:30 this morning. It is a little after 10am now, although the rain has stopped it is still very overcast and most ‘unlovely’…… Typical bank holiday weather in my native UK in fact!
Back in June a dear friend of mine from my UK days celebrated a birthday – she is a lover of PINK – so I usually make her a predominantly pink card and this year was no exception.
When I was at the Stampin’ Up convention in July I signed up to join in with an ‘organized swap’
It was for a 3D treat holder and the requirements were that it should hold a treat and be an original design if possible. As I love to make boxes I knew that would be the base of my ‘treat’ but I also wanted to show a technique – after all I was going to be giving my treat to fellow stampers/papercrafters so I wanted it to have a bit of a WOW factor.
