I Have A Good Excuse...

Sorry for being late in posting the second half of my next giveaway...I really don't have a great excuse for being late (heh heh!)...just ran out of time yesterday!! Anyway, on to more new stamps...


This is my new Boy's Day stamp and sentiment. Boy's Day is on May 5, so you still have some time to get going. Here's a pattern for making this "kimono" gift card. Just cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Apply double stick tape to one tab on the bottom. I also added some contrasting printed paper to the two card flaps:



First, fold the right flap (as shown above)...then fold the left flap over....slip the tab around the first flap and adhere to the inside back of the card (this will make the pocket for your gift card). Wrap a 3/4" strip of paper around the card and finish off with a cord (tied in a bow)...this is the obi (belt).

Next, I have some graduation stamps...ahhhh....can you remember the feeling of having that diploma in your hand?



Here are the stamps I'm giving away today:



To enter, leave me a comment by midnight tomorrow (Monday, 3/15)...give a shout out to your alma mater!! I'll pick one winner at random and announce their name on Tuesday, March 16. Good luck!!
