If I can make someone smile or perhaps get a smile on MY face when I open my mailbox (which not one day goes by that I don't HOPE to find something FUN popping out of my mailbox) then I think I've done my job and tried to make the world is a BETTER place by making just one person happy! Addresses are sometimes altered for protection so the overall visual of the envelope may or may not be the way it was.

Some more March envelopes

A thank you card to Jennifer Smiley!

A quick envelope sent to a friend with bookmarks inside!

After teaching a class in Study Group on "cut out" cards, I
received this in the mail from one of my students, Karen P.

The work of Karen P.

Envelope for the Happy Couple... Andrea and Mike.

I did this for a wedding card to the Happy Couple!
In photo shop, I lightened all the colors and it turned out Platinum
and monochrome! I really liked it!  See the next photo for the original.
This is the original card I made for Andrea and Mike.

February.... busy as a bee... Prednisone driven!

Another recent envelope I sent... address altered for protection!

Abbey goes a little crazy with her placement of my name! I LOVE IT!  !

Bonnie Houser sent me this last summer as part of the Secret Pal Exchange in San Antonio

This might happen if you don't "FIX" it with Fixative and there is
a chance of rain in the forecast.... Still, very lovely, from my bud Sandy!

Inside of card, from Sandy... I love how you can use ONE sheet of SQUARE
paper, in this case 12x12 and get an encasement for your message!

Back of Sandy's "encasement" which the end fits right inside the little square.

To my BFF Fran in Houston.... her birthday isn't for a month or so, but
I got her envelope done a little early.... I wonder if she will see this before she
gets the actual card!?  Hmmmmm.... I hope not! LOL!

A few more from February '13

From Kate... (Inside card)
