One matching envelope

Hi there,

Well I am back & am on a bit of a creative roll.  Gotta love that.  Today I am going to share an envelope that I've just finished about 5 minutes ago.  It is for my uncle's card (last blog entry).  I found this tutorial on how to make envelopes for your cards, love that it's so easy :D.  Here is my envelope:
It's hard to see on this picture but I basically used this technique by Shari Carrol.  I really loved doing this sort of thing.  I think the reason why is because you just never know how it will turn out in the end.  I have also used versamark ink & canvas stripe on the red Bazzil just to give it some interest.  Unfortunately the cling fell off the block as I was positioning it so the bottom half is a little skew-if.  I also intentionally made the words crooked.  I broke out of my comfort zone to do this.  I just went for it & tried not to think that part through.  Yeah, yeah me think I know ;P. 

Also I've discovered why my Lillybug is so cranky & upset :(, poor baby has a virus & her little bottom is redder than that piece of bazzil.  As well as being blistered.  I took her to the dr's today because of it.  We just thought the poor little mite was teething & that's why her tummy was so upset.  Some days it's hard to know what's what in the world of babies :{. 

Well I hope that you all are having a wonderful weekend in your part of the world & happy crafting xoxoxoxoxo
