On the eighth day of Christmas....

I don't know about the rest of you, but it's that time of year when we have a ton of holiday parties to attend. Which means...the inevitable question...what to give the hostess as a little gift, a thank you for the invite and for opening up her home?

Well, what I have started doing is making up card sets. Usually generic in their theme or often a theme that gets used frequently like thank you and happy birthday.

These card sets always seem to be so appreciated. Cards are expensive and what's better than to have some homemade ones on hand when needed? I made this set of cards using the Kitchen Spice line and some stamps in my stash.




















Products Used:
Kitchen Spice
Kitchen Spice Cloves
Kitchen Spice Sesame
Kitchen Spice buttons
Double dot ribbon-tutu
Thanks Tonya!!

Those cards are adorable and what Hostess would not like receiving those?

And as she mentioned....today is the Eight Day of our Twelve Days of Christmas giveaways! What do we have up our sleeve today?
On the Eighth Day of Christmas My True Love Came to Me...

  108. I am really missing checking out the blogs everyday. I am so unbelievably busy that I do not even take the time to put on makeup every day. My mother=in=law has been ill and this has caused a lot of extras for my husband and me. She is in the early stages of Alzheimer's, and I think it would be lovely to do up a set of cards for her. Then maybe help her out with birthdays, etc. Thanks for the inspiration.
