We've come to the final day of the Hero Hostess Take-over on the Hero Arts Blog. And it ended on a high when my Irish friend Heather featured her gorgeous vellum flower and butterflies on some gift wrap. Truly inspiring! I swear I'll try it for a special gift someday - maybe for my mother. Mom's the type to carefully unwrap a gift and extract it, then wrap it back up to its original state! She did this with a Mother's Day gift we gave her one time - that perfectly re-wrapped box sat in the living room corner for about a year!!
My favorite gift to give these days is the boring GIFT CARD! Just have to think which places the recipient likes, pick one up and pop it inside a greeting card and I'm done! Bad, aren't I? While we were on the cruise one of the kids turned 13 (I call him my nephew but he's really my BIL's grandson from another marriage). Had to give him cash - yikes! And sorry I forgot to photograph his card but he loved it. I used a bicycle from Hero Arts and put some birthday balloons coming off it as others in our HA Flickr group have done.
Here's a birthday card I whipped up tonight after work.
Thanks for stopping by!
