Notecards

Hey there! THANK YOU to everyone who left such SUPER SWEET comments on my creation for the most recent DeNami Design Blog Hop!!! If you haven't had a chance to hop along yet, it's not too late!!! You have until 11:59PM PST tonight (July 11, 2011) to leave comments in order to be eligible for FABULOUS prizes!!! Click HERE to start hopping!

A few days ago I posted the invitations I made for my grandma's 80th birthday! As a gift, I also made her 24 blank notecards that she can use for thank you notes! Thought I'd pop in really quickly today to show you a peek at those:





I created six of each of the above designs and intentionally kept them simple so they wouldn't require extra postage. I wrapped each group of six (with envelopes) in white polka dot ribbon. Then, I placed the little bundles of notecards, postage stamps, and a fine tip pen in a pretty little gift bag! It made a really cute little package! My grandma ABSOLUTELY LOVES to send cards, so I'm hoping she was totally thrilled with this gift!

What do you think???

Thanks for stopping by today! I really appreciate it!!!

***SPECIAL NOTE: A HUGE THANKS to those of you in the Colorado area who visited the DeNami Design booth at the Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo in Loveland, CO this past weekend!!!! It was SO MUCH FUN meeting and chatting with you all!!!! I LOVE your enthusiasm for stamping!!! DeNami Design will be at the show in Colorado Springs this coming weekend (July 16th and 17th), so if you're in the area, stop by and say HELLO!!!! We'd LOVE to see you!! And...Nami will be there demonstrating! She is AMAZING!!!! I could watch her work for hours on end!!!
