Freebie Friday 8!

Yay! It's Friday!!! Are you ready for today's Freebie giveaway? It's a cute little card holder set that holds three 3x3 cards and envelopes. Here are a couple pictures of it below:

This adorable little package is made from 2 scallop envelope dies. I trimmed the bottom flap of the envelopes to 1/2 inch, which is also the depth dimension of the box. I wrapped the outside with a 2"x8" stip of the Sweet Always DSP. I used the flower from the Sale-a-bration set Polka dot Punches and also the trio flower punch for the center flower. This would make a great hostess gift, favor, or cute project to do for a stamp class! You can also fill with candy too...I got my inspiration to make this from Jenn Dierck's chocolate filled envelope.

Ready to play? To participate in this Freebie Friday giveaway, please leave me a comment with your email address on this post by midnight Friday, Feb 27th Pacific Time! You can leave me a comment about anything, or answer this question...but don't forget to leave me your email address! Here's today's Freebie Friday question: What is a fun fact about you that you would like to share? You may already know this if you've been following my blog, but one thing I like to do is run. I'm kind of bummed right now that I have broken from my running routine and haven't figured out when to squeeze it in, but I really do like running and doing races. My goal is to do the LA Marathon in 2010 (it's a big milestone year for me), but my favorite race distance is the 10k. I'm not a fast runner, but just enjoy the workout I get from it. Believe it or not, I think about stamping projects a lot on my run! Look forward to reading about you!

Enjoy your Friday!

Love the color combo too! I think I need to make some of these! I've done them in a different combo...but I have that paper maybe I'll make some this weekend. A fun fact about Husband signed me up as a SU a surprise for Valentine's Day 1997...he called a lady he did not together with her and filled out paperwork...and even wrote a poem in my Valentine's said, My darling, when I meet you I knew this was it...what could I get you...a kit! My SU anniversary date is Feb 14th!
Have a super weekend!

This is so cute! I'd love to have it.
Hmmm . . . a fun fact about little 'ol me . . . People think I'm really sweet until they see me dressed in my leathers to ride on the back of my Huaband's Harley Davidson. Then they get intimidated. LOL! If they only knew how non-threathening I am.
Pick me! Pick me!

Love this one as well. YOUr stuff always inspires me to GET TO WORK!. I collect all of the supplies and spend too much time looking at them. My New Year's resolution was to "use, not hoard" and your projects ahve definitely helped.
Thanks so much for sharing.

Oops. Forgot the fun fact. I got to spend Valentine's Day in 2008 traveling through India. 11 days and 3 cities. Noe nearly enough time but I hope to go back in the next year.

I just discovered your site a few weeks ago and am loving it! You have some very fun and nice looking projects. And simple enough for me to try!
fun fact: When I'm not working or stamping, I'm probably playing the piano!
