Make a Special Card

Sometimes you want to make a special card for someone who you really appreciate and you want to also add pizazz to your gift giving. Grab hold of your talent and your crafty skills and, just do it. There is something about receiving a handmade card and for those who do not make them, they are not less appreciative. It might make their day a special one, because someone took the time to make them a special card. This one took no time at all to make, and it's very nice to have the stuff to make it on hand! LOL!
I have made a ceramic container of soaps, coloured and scented to a theme that I know the recipient will love. And the great thing about making it yourself, is you can match the colour and texture to the gift that you are giving.

I love how the Elegant Labels and Antique Plaques go together, with just a little sprinkling of fabric muslin, it can make such a difference to your gift. Thanks for looking and have a great weekend....

PS on another note: if you are in the vicinity of Made with Memories TONIGHT, around 6.30 -7pm I am doing some lovely paint techniques and demo at Anne-Marie's store in Rockingham. So if you are going hope to see you there! xxx Julie : )
