Card on right says: “Chocolate, coffee, men – some things are better rich.”
I made these cards for my BFF for her b’day. I’ve been planning to make her a set of coffee cards for about 6 months now. She doesn’t have a clue about them, but she will soon. She arrives here tomorrow to spend 3 days with me. Isn’t that sweet of her? She’s also bringing her 2 sons, but not her DH because he’s working. Poor DH.
We’ll have a good time. We’ve been friends for … let’s just say we met when we were 12 and have been friends since then. Ok? No need to establish that I’m actually old enough to have a teenager. Oops. Let’s just say I’m more than 20 years past 12, but less than 30 years past 12…but not by too much.
So, I just “had to have” certain supplies to make my BFF this set of cards I had in my head. DH was happy to get everything I asked for. Then…I ended up not using most of it and developing something totally different. I heart you DH…you’re the best.
Well, I like the 2 cards above soooo much…that I don’t want to give them to her. I bought these little stands at Kirkland’s the other day for cards to sit on so I can enjoy them while they are being completed, but when I got home, I put 2 of my BFF’s completed card gifts on the stands instead. Now, I don’t want to see them go! (BTW, initially, I went into Kirkland’s to buy a lamp but I left with the three tiny stands instead…then a day later DH said…we could really use 2 lamps to go on top of your desk…geeze).
Well, here’s one card that I thought had too much on it with that pink ribbon. I thought it was overkill, but too late now. Then the other card isn’t finished yet.
