Monograms and Special Birthdays
Tonight DH and I are going to a party to celebrate the 18th and 21st of our friends sons. The boys have their birthday on the same date in August, but with all their friends celebrating this year also and trying to fit all the parties in, it was decided to go for a mid summer celebration. Now it's one of those dilemmas what do you give to brothers sharing the same birthday on their 18th & 21st!!!!!!!!!!! I spoke to their Mum who said that like many of us they hope to go to the Olympics and so money would be appreciated. However it's nice to give it in a slightly more interesting way. So I've made my own version of this gift card holder that US demos were given on their recent incentive trip. I've adapted it to UK measurements and instead of a gift card I've added the cheque.
I started making this around 7am this morning and have found quite by chance that it also fits in with the challenge set by Chrissie and Mandi at Less is More. They've asked for Monograms this week and that's fitted in really well with my gift card as I'm making two obviously, I want them to be personal and so have monogramed them, well this one so far as the other is yet to be made!
The party tonight is in a marquee so wish us luck with all the rain! Hope you have a fun filled weekend.
