Happy Wednesday!!! This week is flying by for me. I'm still trying to catch my breath after all the fun of CHA. I promise I'll get pictures up this weekend... I just haven't had time this week with one thing and another. It was definitely a dream come true, and one I hope to repeat again next year, with certain people along with me, eh Debbie, Michelle, Kristine, Patti and Des...and anyone else who wants to join us! The more the merrier!

This week, our hostess for La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge is my friend Kim Yu (love her!), and she challenged us to make a gift card holder. When Kim and I were at the Super Show on Saturday, we did a make-and-take at Our Craft Lounge that was...ta-da...a gift card holder. I told Kim right then that would be the pattern I'd use for my challenge card, and indeed I did!

Don't you just adore Lotus? She is one of the new releases from La-La Land Crafts this month. She appears to be sitting on the band that wraps around the gift card holder. I just couldn't resist placing that butterfly at her hand.

Here's a view of the inside, where you can see a Starbucks gift card peeking out of the slot. Fun!

I'm sorry I can't tell you what DP this is because it was a gift. But it sure goes perfectly with Lotus, don't you think?

I hope you'll play along in La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge this week... and click on over there to see all the great inspiration from our very talented design team. You can use any stamps of your choice, and there's always a prize up for grabs. There's no better time to start (or add to) your La-La Land Crafts stamp collection because it's buy three get one free through Saturday, so HURRY!

Thanks for stopping by, my friends. Have a blessed day!

Okay, please don't take this as my asking for more stamps :-), but this girl really looks like my oldest daughter. It's like she posed for it or something. You colored her so well.

What on earth was that post before mine?? Somehow I dont think "they" were very crafty souls do you??

Love the colouring Lisa, and the different way you made the holder. I love these as a way to personalise the store-bought ones. Off to try it out...

lots of love
