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!

Wow!! I'm impressed. If I thought of taking a gift 15 minutes before, I'm afraid I would sigh and say "Next time". You are amazing.

I've been reading about "inchies" and small things appeal to me.....no...don't look at my STOMACH....

I NEEDED a wonderful Idea that I could do today on my deathbed....not feeling so good, but I'm wanting to MAKE something pretty.

Come to my blog tomorrow for SIXTY YEARS IN SIXTY SENTENCES.

You are amazing! What a nice gift and is so little time. A friend has a birthday next week and I don't know what to get her. Now I have an idea what I could make her. Thanks so much.
