card holders

Made some card holders over the last few days.Two differant styles you can use for your credit cards or to keep some of your buisness cards in your handbag. Getting ready for back to school, the last min rush to check we have everything ready, went to get the school jumpers and they didn't have Jasons size so have had to order, just hoping they are going to be here before Tuesday, apart from that i think we are all done and ready for next week, although im not, i hate it when the kids go back to school in September, it makes me think of cold days and dark nights coming.
