Easy Peasy Starbucks Gift Card Holder

Today is a rainy day which means I get to spend the day in my craft room.  Woohoo!  I have this $5 Starbucks Gift Card that I am gifting to someone, and instead of using the generic kraft paper one that came with it, I decided to amp it up a little by using the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper.  I made it in less than 30 minutes.  However, learning to write this blog took me all day! LOL!  The greeting “enjoy today” came from my Pieces & Patterns Stamp Set. What do you like to do on a rainy day?
