A quick card and a little serendipity....

It's Passover. Time to stretch the imagination for things that can be eaten on matzoh! (I personally like either butter, peanut butter or turkey and cheese.... yum.)

A friend makes cute wooden matzoh trays (with a laminated photo of matzoh on it) so I bought one to give as a hostess gift. I had to make very quick cards to go with both the gift and the thank you to my inventive friend. This is what I came up with. Remember it was quick so I just circle punched and then added this adorable label I've been hoarding onto a metal tie from 7 Gypsies. It looks like a towel on a rack, doesn't it? It needed a little something so I added that sweet bird from the Ippity set called Quotes a la Happy. (A few birds made it inside the card, as well.)

The serendipity I mentioned in the title came in the form of a gift card design. I decided to give my father-in-law the card I made and featured in my blog post entitled B{ippity} Boppity Boo (April 11th). It is a tri-shutter card that has the same cute little birds from above on it and I gave them all party hats in the scene I created. Well, I went to Amazon to buy a gift card to include in the card and I almost fell off my chair when I saw that this was one of the designs to choose from. I got a big smile out of this!

I wish you smiles today!

Happy Passover (sure that's not the right phrase, I'd be glad to know what I should say)
