In an effort to "inspire" you more, The Sisterhood of Crafters has changed our challenge line up and evidentally it's working!  AWESOME!  We've had wonderful participation and AMAZING creations!  Thanks so much everyone!!

Today's challenge is called: SIMPLY HANDMADE ... create a homemade gift for someone.  Well, it just so happens that I have an 'ole high school friend who is celebrating a birthday later this month and her family is having a surprise party for her ... to which I am invited.

I thought a monogrammed set of cards and a Post-It Note holder for her desk would be a nice gift idea.  She doesn't have any of my cards and I think she'll enjoy the fact that they are personalized! 

The card set was made using K&Co. (Ancestry) designer paper, Martha Stewart Butterfly & Floral Vine punches, Nestabilities classic circle dies and the JustRite Monogram Stamper Kit.  

The Post-It Note holder uses Webster's Pages (Sweet As Cherry Pie) designer paper, Nestabilities classic circles, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and the Bind-It All.

We would love to have you pop on over to OUR BLOG ... check out the challenge details and come play along.  While you are there, check out what my Sistahs have created for your inspiration ... this is one VERY TALENTED group of ladies!!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you're having an AMAZING day!
