A customer called wanting a gift certificate.  I didn’t have any ready so I whipped up this one using Ginger Blossom designer paper and the cool felt flowers from Flower Fusion.


This is another 6.5″ x 3.25″ card (6.5 square folded in half) – I’m just loving working with that size right now.  The gift certificate is printed inside and I wrapped a belly band around the card to make it feel more like a *gift*.  The base and band are River Rock and the stamped images are from the upcoming SU Sale-a-bration set Friendship Blooms.  Once again I veered off from SUO only slightly with the use of my Marvy punches.  The felt flowers are finished off with a Fire rhinestone brad.  I just had to stamp a matching envie to make the gift complete.  *grin*

When I got Flower Fusion (p. 177 of the Spring/Summer Collection 2008 catty) I wanted to know if I had enough of any one piece to use them on swaps or in a class, so yep – you guessed it – I sorted and counted them all.  I thought I’d share with you what I found in case you might also be curious about this.

 flower-fusion-jan-08-jami-small.jpgClick this thumbnail to see it larger.  As you can see, each flower shape/size comes in three colors – Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and in the catalog what looks like Rose Red seems much closer to Pink Passion IRL.  The number you see handwritten is how many you get of that particular shape/size in each color (i.e. if you see the number 3 by a flower, you get 3 pumpkin, 3 olive and 3 pink of that shape/size). I’ve also included a Quarter, dime and nickel in the photo for size reference.  I hope that some of you will find this helpful – let me know if you do.

I had a bunch of running around to do today and last night the news said that it would be raining hard all day – ugh.  I like rain, but I’d rather not be out in it.  Fortunately it didn’t start raining until I was about 5 minutes from home this afternoon all finished with my errands.  Perfect timing!  Got in and changed into my flannel PJ’s the perfect rainy weather wear!  I have to toot my own horn just a little – I attended a Jazzercise class this morning.  This is the first time I have done any type of workout in a really long time – probably a couple of years or more.  I was actually supposed to go on Monday, but I chickened out.  *eye roll*  Anyway I got there today and I made it through the whole hour and signed up for a month!  *high five*  I’ve been trying to get back into some sort of exercise for a long time, so I’m just proud of myself for taking this first baby step.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Well, dang, Jami I was wondering if they were worth the money or not and now I know I’ll be ordering them for sure! Thanks for the pic and the info and the coins too; they really helped show the sizes better than the catty does.

    Honestly! She’s going to love this presentation more than the gift certificate itself! I’m betting she will be “needing” to order the felts and the papers … and more!
