CAS Notepad Favors

Hope you all had a "lovely" Valentine's Day with your loved ones.   My hubby and I usually don't do anything on Valentine's Day since our wedding anniversary is just a couple of days after, yup tomorrow.  So we'll celebrate both special occasions then....well actually on Monday.  We're still trying to decide where to eat.  Today though, is the anniversary of our first date, many years ago.   Guess you could say it'll be a triple celebration.  I'll post the card I made for him in a few days.

Here's a pix of a CAS notepad I made for a recent little birthday celebration we had last week for my dear co-worker.  I got some packs of notepads from Ace Hardware (in the dollar section) months ago and added a cover using a DP by Doodlebug.  Also, inked this cute chick by Dandelion Designs with Copics.  For the "Notes" tab, I used Label One die by Spellbinder.  Topped it off with corrugated paper from my stash.  I kept it simple so I wouldn't cover the sweet design on the DP.  Cute yah?  



Here are 7 of them.   Do you notice there's one with a blue flower and yellow border?  That's for the guy in our office.   Hee-hee, tried to make it more "manly."   :-)


And here they are packaged with an assortment of colored pens.......

I'm glad they all loved it.   

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you all have a WONDERFUL and CRAFTY LONG WEEKEND.   Toodles.

Ooopa, almost forgot...."Happy anniversary of your first date, marriage and Valentines day"! to you!!! Can't wait to see the special card you made for hubby!

The notepads that you made as favors for your co-worker's b-day turned out fab. I am not at all surprised that it was a big hit with everyone that received it. It's a great idea to keep the cover on the simple side so that the cute DSP that you used for the cover is not completely covered.

I hope that you your your hubby had a wonderful lunch/dinner together today celebrating Valentine's Day and your anniversary. I look forward to hearing about where you went, what you ordered, and of course seeing the card that you made for him. :)
