A little look at the gifts, I finally finished for my friend's birthday.

A little notebook my friend can throw into her purse .

This is a simple flower card, that I really like.
It is easy to make, always a plus.
Maybe that is why she is getting six of them.

Another little note card. I am still in love with the birds.
I really do love this new paper. But, I know that the next time I visit one of the local craft stores I will fall in love with another stack of pretty papers. It happens everytme!

I am not that happy with the picture quality. But, I always wait until it is night time to take most of my pictures. You can see that I had to use a flash for this picture. I covered a white paper bag from J Crew with paper to match all the little gifts that I made. It can easily to used again since I added the words "Just for You" instead of Happy Birthday.

Thanks for visiting!

I love all the goodies you made. I keep saying that I am going to give cardmaking a try. I already do a little sewing and needlework. I have even been saving pretty paper, and buying stamps, pads and punches on sale! I just can't find time to try something new! Maybe when I retire from teaching!Until then, I'll dream!

Everything looks adorable and what a great gift! And anything made by hand comes from the heart. And those are the best kind to receive! I think your friend will love it!
