I chose to highlight the fact that it's National Hamburger month!!!  Who knew right?!?  I would have supposed that if there was to be an Hamburger month it would have been later in the summer time... but I guess not!
So when I saw this I knew right away the image that I wanted to use for this.  It's from Fresh Brewed Design and it's called Happy meal.  You can find it here.  I made a gift card holder that I will be giving to the school bus driver of my kids with a gift card to Tim Horton (some coffee/restaurant place from Canada)

Click the see more to see the rest of the post!

So I used for this card my CM tearing tool  I used my cricut to cut out the shape of the gift card holder.  I used a stamp to put some interest on the other side of the holder

And I stamped my thank you on the inside ;)  I used my label 11 from Spellbinder to cut the paper for the sentiment.

Your next stop is here Jearise.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
