Checkbook Cover on the Cheap

Hello and happy Thursday!
We always love Thursdays around here, and this week especially...
the kids are out of school tomorrow, HOORAY!!!
Today I'm linking up for Thrifty Thursday.

I bought this little treasure a few weeks ago.
I got it at Monogram's Plus in the clearance room.
The clearance room is always my favorite but it was even better on the day I purchased this.
To celebrate the owner's birthday they were offering everything in the clearance room at 75% off.
I ended up snagging my new checkbook cover for $3.00.
Everybody together, SCORE!!! :D
I loved the toile print, but it was screaming for some attention.
I busted out my Brother and monogrammed my business name...
A Mother's Gift.
Yes, this was a business purchase/crafty creation! ;>
I restocked my ribbons recently so I had a great variety to chose from.
I added the brown print on the top and then layered the pink on the bottom.
My sewing skills still aren't perfect, but for now they're good enough for me.
So here I give you the front,

and back.

I'm calling it my Checkbook Cover on the Cheap!
So do tell, what do you think??
God's blessings on your Thursday, Sarah :)
