  1. Very cute card! The pearls are just the special touch that you are known for. Lucky lady to get a SU gift certificate for Christmas.

  2. Suprised not spoiled on me……Didn’t find this gift certificate under my Christmas Tree….but will have to forward the idea on to my Jack for next year. YIPPIEE to the lucky lady who received this card – Can only image how much fun she is going to have SHOPPING. Thanks for sharing with us Mary and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  3. Love this card.

  4. Merry Christmas Mary,…..I love the fact that you too from Arizona 🙂 and its like Christmas each day when I sign on and see all of the ideas presented by you and your awesome team mates!

  5. Happy Holidays! Love this card! So many possibilities… I was wondering if you use glue dots for that pleated ribbon? Will that hold it well enough?

  6. Pretty and well done. My question is-do you just lay the gift card in the top of the back of the card or does the card slide under the ribbon on the back? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I’m looking forward to the creations of you and the Pretty Pals in the new year.

  7. I simply tucked the gift card inside . . . however, I really like your idea of slipping it under the ribbon. So clever! Hugs, M

  8. Warmest Christmas Wishes to you and your family Mary!

  9. Stunning card! Thank you for all of the inspiration you give so freely!
    Merry Christmas!

  10. I wish you a merry christmas and a happy and healthy new year!

    Thanks for the joy you are bringing with your blog!
    Frohe Weihnachten!

    best wishes angelika
