Treat Yourself

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.

It's been awhile...because I had to go four..whole..days with NO internet!  The horror!!
Apparently we had a lightning strike that got some part of our internet connection gizmo that is on the outside of our house (I have no idea what any of that techie stuff is called). So after a desperate call to the cable company we were told that the tech couldn't get to our house until late yesterday afternoon. Pure torture, I'm telling you. Anyway, he worked his magic (bless his heart) and I'm back up and running, although I'm thinking that it may take me a few days to fully recover from the serious withdrawal symptoms I suffered!

So, now that I'm back online it's time to share again!
Let me show you some cute little gift cards I made for my grands...

I started out by using some Distress Inks to watercolor my backgrounds.
The yummy ice cream images are from Lawn Fawn's stamp set Treat Yourself which I colored with my Copic Markers.

I used the Gift Card Die from Jaded Blossom on an insert to hold a gift card to the Dairy Queen.

Each card became a bit more personal with letters created with the Owen's ABCs stamp set from Lawn Fawn

That about does it for me today - thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day and I'll be seeing you soon (barring any internet glitches)!


  1. WOW! 4 days without Internet!!! I would have gone Bonkers!! I had a hard time 1 night a few months ago when there was a Fire the next street over... they got the power line and we had noo power until 9:30 that night and I was running around with my head cut off because I didn't know what to do with myself! LOL So glad it's working for you and you have a sweet project to share!!! Those are simply adorable... those Grands of yours are so lucky to have a Nana like you who makes special cards & gifts for them... Love the Water Coloring Background... One of these days I will make something using that technique... just wait... I'll probably shock you with it! LOL Have A Crafty Day! :)
