Gift Cards Are Perfect

Whoever had the original concept of gift cards was a genius!

I have a niece and nephew that live in Kentucky. They are 24 and 18. The older they get, the less I get to see them. As with all young adults, they are finding their own way in this thing called Life and it doesn't include driving nearly 500 miles to see your aunt!

Thanks to their mom and dad, both are wonderful, caring, honest, well rounded, extremely funny, human beings.

Every so often I like to send them a little surprise in the form of gift cards seeing how they're now "on their own." My niece has been sucked into the cult known as Starbucks and my nephew is a broke college kid that likes to eat and really likes Zaxby's.

Here are the cards I made to mail the gift cards along with a brief note. I used S&S Sketch #146 for the design. I have decided I love this sketch!

Paper: MME Lost & Found Two "Sunshine" and Stella & Rose
Stamps: Inky Antics "Simple Sentiments

So, two small pieces of plastic have inspired me to make two cards, blog about the cards and will hopefully make two very special people in my life happy!

Gift Cards = Brilliant
