Day 3 My Bloghop

Day 3 of my Bloghop

Firstly I would like to say Thankyou to everyone that is popping by and leaving me comments, I am having so much fun and love reading them all. So hopefully you are enjoying my Bloghop as much as I am and especially enjoying the projects I am showing you.

Well today I will be showing you all a nifty way to give a Gift Card. I mean really how boring are those cards (if you can call them that) they come with, well here is a personal special way for all your friends to receive a Gift Card from you either for their Birthday, Christmas or maybe Just Because.

I have used the DSP Letters to Santa for my postage stamp on the front (you get a whole page of these and I love them you could even put one on the envelope.) I have white embossed the Merry and Bright from the Merry and type Stamp Set. Marina Mist and Riding Hood Red cardstock as these colours co-ordinate with the DSP. Inside I have used the Designer Label and Word Window punch to make the slot for the Gift Card to sit in and well there you have everyone a nice way to give a Gift Card.

Isn't this so cute with the Postage Stamp n the front.

I will also be offering some Prizes. To be in the running to
win some great prizes just before Christmas you will need
to visit my blog every day for the next five days.
Not only do you need to visit and check out my project for the
day but you will need to let me know that you have stopped
by so I can put you in the draw to win those Prizes.
How to let me know, you will need to leave a comment
on all 5 posts don't forget to add your name. This can be done
by clicking the Post Comment at the bottom of each post.

Thanks for stopping by
