A Gift Card Set and Giveaways Extended...

Hi Everyone,
I trust you all are just as busy as I am. My Birthday (Month) Bash was a BLAST and very Memorable! As I'm winding down from all the lost sleep, it dawned on me that I still have even more to celebrate this month. My Wedding Anniversary is coming up next week (10/9-8yrs and counting <3)!...eek! (It's not that I forgot, but you know how things just slip up on ya...). Well... DH had plans for that weekend so, I will be M.I.A. from Blog-land for a while (sort <wink>). With that being said. I thought this would be a Great Time for all of You out there to still get in on the Giveaways that I have going...
All Birthday Bash & Grand Giveaways are extended for another week until next Saturday (10/13)
If you're just coming here and want to know more about the Birthday Bash Weekend & Giveaway (Click Here). I would like to have more participants so help me Spread the Word by putting this post on your blog with a link back here.
Wooo Hooo! I know Right! Now you have No Excuse for not participating. It's Easy Peasy and The Prizes to be won are Fantabulous! I wouldn't give away anything I wouldn't use myself, so I know the winners will definitely enjoy them.
Now Get to those Comments and Create That Project!
In the meantime, I was able to crank out a quick card set last night for my step-daughter to give to her tutor (a family friend/Teacher) that's been helping her prepare for her SAT's the last few weeks (remember those days...yikes!). Anyway, they wouldn't accept any monetary payment from us, but we wanted to do something for them to show we appreciate them stepping in on such short notice. (Her test is this Saturday...please pray with us that she does an Excellent Job!).
Being that her tutor is a male, I didn't want to get to frilly with this card. You know how we crafters can be Here is the Gift Card Holder and Matching Card that I made for her to give to him after their last study session today. 
 (Inside this Card we put a Visa Gift Card)
 (Inside this Gift Card Holder we put a Subway Card, his favorite place)
