did i tell you Lulu got sprayed by a skunk a couple of days back around 1:30AM? i did the tomato bath and i tell you,  it just masks the odor. she still smells around her neck and the laundry room is not the greatest place to be around right now, lol. today, she will get a bath with another homemade remedy i found on the net. let's see! and wish us luck :P
we all can write a book with anecdotes and it would fit between drama and comedy and some action with violence, parental control advice. perhaps, we can have our own reality tv show. :P
i bet we do, right?

anyway, here is a card i made

a little something for you
5 inch
(no skunk involved, i promise)
just a gift/money holder card
 the santa's hat is from winter woodland cricut cartridge and the cute sentiment from my pink stamper set called: winter treats & sayings.
 (the inspiration came from here)

the star brad acts as a hinge and connects the front and back.

when you cut the hat it already gives you a slit---the dollar sign is to show you where the gift card or money will go: is from the wild card cart. i added some green stickles for the bling in money...hehe

i cut this hat 4 times: 3 times in the red patterned paper and one time on the beige color. the fuzzy thread was added with double sided tape.

 this circle was added to hide the brad prongs.

 envelope made using the new arrival cart. 
the "from and to" are also from a my pink stamper clear stamp set.

 we are going to need lots of these gift card/money holders for the upcoming holidays. 
i wanted to share this one idea and how you can make it your own,  from many others in the web.

have a great one!

  9. Hi Agnes,
    sorry its been so long since my last visit. I just love this gift card holder. Very cute. hope all is well with you and your family.

  10. This gift card holder is awesome! I love it! Every little detail is perfect! This will really please the recipients this holiday season! I hope you found a remedy for poor Lulu! We don't have a dog but my husband has a dog wash at his store which I've heard from others was a life saver when it came to their dogs being sprayed! Whatever he has, it works good! I'll have to check with him to see what he has in there! I forgot to write in my last comment that I wasn't hopping so if for some chance you draw my name, to draw again for someone who is hopping. I just wanted to stop by and say hi! I'll stop back sooner next time!


Have a fun day!!!
