Thank You Set to Someone Special

Good Evening, Everyone!! This is a "thank you" gift set that I'm going to give to someone special who has been very nice to me. Hey, it may be you. . .LOL! I have a whole bunch of people that I need to send "thank you" goodies to. . .boy, I'm going to be seriously busy but that's okay. This set is just one of them that I finished and will be sending out. I really am slow sometimes in creating and sending out these things but if you've been nice to me. . .please remember, that I do truly appreciate it. The recipient of this thank you set has been a very nice blogging friend. . .who has always been thoughtful and kind to me. Thank you, friend. I hope you'll like them. It's nothing grand, but believe me, the thought is there!! You are truly appreciated!!

This is a card I made. . .it's a "hidden message" card or "slider" card. This is similar to the card my stampin' friend Joanne had given to me when we got together a few weeks ago.

Again, I don't know who the original creator of this technique, I just sort of figured out how to create it based on the card that Joanne had given to me. LOL!

This is how the card looks when the string is pulled. A little message is revealed.

Card Details:
Stamp Set: SU Friendly Flowers, Lots of Thoughts
Paper: My Minds Eye (MME) designer paper, SU Pumpkin Pie, Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip
Ink: SU Pumpkin Pie, Blue Bayou
Accessories: CTMH Bigger Brads, Grosgrain Ribbon, SU Ticket Corner Punch, Scallop Punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches

This is a little mini box that I decorated. I put a little something inside.

I think the SU stamp set I used was "Riveting".

This is a matching accordion mini album card. . .I guess. It's like a card but you can use it as a mini album too if you want.

The clip holds the album/card closed. The clip is by Making Memories, in the case you're wondering who makes these mini clips.

Here is the album/card when opened up. The size of the pages are approximately 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. I didn't decorate the inside so the person can add her own pictures or decorate it further and treat it like a card and send it out to someone else.

Anyway, I have a lot of work to do. . .I have a whole bunch of "thank you" cards and handmade gifts to work on.

Until later!!
