Happy Belated Birthday Les!

My friend Les' b-day was last month and I only gave her her b-day present this week! I'm even later on another friend's b-day from January, so I need to get my act together and make some stuff!!! Sorry Les! Anyway, I wanted to use this new Greeting Farm Stamp called Gigi. She reminds me of Les- I think its the hair... Anyway, I'm still on that yellow kick, so she's wearing yellow too. I wanted to use this cool daisy paper I found at Island Scrapbooking, so I found the part of the paper that had the largest daisy cluster and used that as the background. Here's a close up of Gigi... Isn't she cute?? I also made Les this cupcake gift card holder.... 1 Luvn Mama posted it on her website and I was so impressed with it that I had to try it for myself. Mine didn't come out as nice since it was the first one I made, but I think it came out OK. You can see the binderclip sticking out... I don't know how they hide theirs so good! Here's the side view... I could tell from Les' face that she didn't know that it was a gift card holder. I wrote in her card to pull on the top flower but she didn't, so I had to tell her to do it. She must've been thinking to herself... gee thanks for the cupcake- what do I do with it! hee hee. Good thing I made her open it in front of me, so I had to tell her how to get her gift card out.
Anyway, hope she likes it... I gotta try make that cupcake again.. Practice makes perfect!
