Gift Card Mania!

Today I stopped into the Crafters' Gift Boutique to take care of monthly business and to get my cards set up in a much nicer display.  Sherri, at the Boutique, loaned me some white hanging baskets which will make it easier for customers to browse through the cards.  The divider I made for the basket was card board from the bottom of a case of bottled water covered with none other than Stampin' Up! card stock.  I used Basic Black and Neutrals Basic Black Striped DSP.  They turned out well.  I need to get some pictures taken of the display and post here so you all can see what it looks like.

Also, my coaster set sold!  Woo! Hoo!  Apparently, there has been much interest in more coasters so I'm going to be making more but want to use cork board for the next ones.  The set that sold was one of a kind.  Another thing Sherri said people were looking for are gift card holders.  So, tonight, I found instructions for a simple but very nice one.  I don't remember where I found it or who I CASEd it from, but I so appreciate the inspiration for them.  I made up six and will add them to the display on Tuesday.  It was fun to see what I could come up with since they are all the same pattern.

Now it's time to finish watching my movie and then get some sleep.  Tomorrow I'm supposed to head over to my youngest son's for a fish fry.  We can only pray that he and his older brother will catch a bunch to feed ten of us.  The last fish fry was delicious.  It's supposed to rain so we shall see.

So, here are the new gift card holders.  They are all Stampin' Up! product and made with various stamps ink, punches and card stock.  The picture isn't the best so when I come back later to add all the "stuff" I used, I'll try to have a better photo for you.  :-)
