Gift Certificates

In my previous post, I mentioned that for a few years now, I've donated 3 gift certificates which are auctioned off at our church preschool's annual pancake breakfast during a huge silent auction. (10 pound of cherries, 15 pounds of asparagus, and a box of peaches) Rather than just print a piece of paper, I feel I must insert my certificate into something crafty, and typically, I don't start and finish these certificates until the night before the auction! Funny thing, however, I manage to buy supplies for these 3 little cards ALL YEAR LONG (I have so much cherry stuff, it's unreal).....I was somewhat desperate by the time I got to the peach one, if I recall, I believe it was about 2 a.m. and we needed to have these at the breakfast by 8 a.m. I have a request to the stamp and designer paper artists out there....there is an over abundance of cherry things out there, (later I will post pictures of some absolutely wonderful designer paper I picked up this weekend for my cherry certificate....), and I have several "peachy" things....but I only have ONE image for my asparagus! It was one of the very first Stampin Up! sets I ever bought!!! (I can't recall the name, but it was on a Thanksgiving set.....) I NEED to start these soon...I won't be here for the auction this year, so I can't burn the midnight oil, as I have in the past!

I can go in many directions with my designs...these images are last years creations. It's funny how each recipient takes care of my card, and returns it to me, year after year! I could just "reuse"...but that would be too easy, and I wouldn't be able to justify my purchases!~

Off topic, for those who are stopping by...I'm still trying to figure out my layout of these posts! I seem to not be able to move my pictures and my layout is a little strange. I'm at my home office currently, and these images are not saved on my home computer, so, I don't want to fiddle too much, for fear of losing them....and if today is like yesterday, like the day before, like the day before, yada, yada, yada.....I will probably not have time to zip on and play with the layout of this!!! So, friends, bear with me...I occasionally see a typo, and I am not happy with my page layouts, but in time, I will improve!
