"WHAT???" I can't just do a little cop out gift card for a 50th birthday, especially for someone as wonderful as my mother-in-law.
So I had to do something fabulous, but what? Of course I had no idea what to do and no inspiration. I spent an hour or so searching the web trying to find a simple and cute idea and came across personalized wine labels. :: lightbulb moment ::
Then in my scraproom I found one of these bare elements wine holders that I've had for years and didn't come across the right occasion to use it.
I ended up with a wine holder complete with customised wine bottle, card with gift card and matching flowers.
Not too bad for a moment's notice huh?
Here's the wine holder I put it in.

The quick card, I think it turned out cute though.
I was really proud of being able to pull all of this together in such short notice and I think it turned out pretty cute, don't you??
