Another Quick Hostess Gift

We went to a picnic over the weekend and I decided to make the hostess a little package of note cards......about 15 minutes before we were ready to leave....ooops.  So I got some Stampin'Up! note cards and envelopes---already cut & scored, that's a time-saver right there!  I pulled out Sweet Stems and stamped each image on some Whisper White cardstock, then colored them in quickly with some markers, blender pen and ink.  Then I punched them out with a circle punch and mounted each one on a scallop punched from a K&Co Berry Sweet mat pad, and adhered each one to a note card.

Here's a closeup of each one:

I packaged them up real quick in a little cello bag and wrapped some Baja Breeze ribbon around and made a little emblem with a sentiment from PTI's Mixed Messages.  Phew!  Made it just in time!  TFL!
