Gift Card Holders

Hello & Happy Saturday!

The last few days I have been resting my hands.
I know I have carpal tunnel in both hands but I am also starting to get joint pain in my fingers which is probably a sign that I am developing Psoriatic Arthritis in them. Since I have already been diagnosed with Psoriasis it's more than likely the start of it. 
My customer called me yesterday and left me a message asking for more cards.
As much as I hate to say no....I really think I need to take a break from crafting so I can let my hands rest. I will get back to my stamping eventually but right now I need to lay low. 
I 'm sure she will understand.

Anyways, today my hubby & I are going to head out for a couple quick errands.
Traffic has been crazy so I try to stay put at home as much as possible.
Football is on primetime this evening and of course we will be rooting for our Baltimore Ravens! Woot Woot!

Today I am going to share all 11 gift card holders that my customer requested for Christmas.
I made them all different using a variety of stamps, papers & ink!
Check them out....

This is a template that I got from Splitcoaststampers years ago and this is how I always make my gift cards! They are SO easy...nothing difficult about it! Well, sometimes decorating it is the toughest part! LOL

I made a bunch more for Ryan & myself for Christmas.
I said I was not buying gifts this it's money & gift cards!
That makes life easier for everyone!

I will share those gift cards in a few days!

My thoughts today....

Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!
