Spotty or Stripey......or even both!

Hello everyone,

There, the week's in half! Just a couple more days and then it's the weekend once more! I never got around to scrapping last weekend, will it happen this weekend? Probably not ;)

I have a gift voucher holder for this week's Fab 'n Funky challenge; the lovely Wendy picked the theme of "Spots or Stripes or even both". Great theme Wendy :) I made this for a dear colleague who has left for another job, but never actually gave it to her as other arrangements were made for her sending off-present. Thankfully she won't be away completely, as we still will be collaborating on research projects, but she won't be around as much. Nevertheless, we work really well together and this was meant to be my thank you to her (the sentiment reads: Thank you very much!). I have made a few of these holders recently and they are really cute; the middle is a sleeve which holds the card together. The middle section is a sleeve which holds the card in place. Inside I stuck an envelope with room for a voucher.

As the theme is fairly broad, we are expecting a large variety of participating projects, so come and join our party and link up :)
