Hi there

Well hello and Happy New Year, yep its come and gone already.
I'm on holidays so i am having a very relaxing time doing.....nothing really.

I have finished the first part of the Stitch A Long that i am participating in, so here it is
kind of a skinny long panel.

I also wanted to show you a card/envelope that i made and i am sorry i didn't take note of where i found the idea.
Here is the envelope

ahh so pretty
now for the inside where you cut a real envelope in half to create these two pockets

weird ha, but in one pocket i will be putting cash and in the other a little note just like this

here i have used the beautiful Mendhi Medallion stamp from PTI, and as the person that i made this card for has already had their birthday i had better go and post it.

I made some mini quiches today to take to my crafty interlude with the "Three of Us" (which will really be the ten of us as the children are on holidays)  but i forgot to tell my man giant (Son Joe who is a 17yo 6ft 6in hungry tower) that they are NOT TO BE EATEN, alas there is only half left now. I tell ya it costs a fortune to feed teenage boys. Actually, given the language that is coming from his room as i type this (Joe plus Xbox live) i will be giving him a few bars of soap to eat. Does anyone else have this problem?

Alrighty i have a few crafty things to do tonight and i may even do my first week of Project Life. Enjoy your night. Thanks for stopping by.

Well hello :) and WOOHOOOOOOO on finishing your first lot of blocks for SKOW! They look lovely, and it feels so good to have the first lot finished huh?
Good luck with PL...my photos are printed and I'm ready to start (I think). And tell Joe he is very naughty...both for eating all the food, and for swearing so much! Hahahaha...

Great projects! I love the card with the doily and bunting! My son is only 9 and already he can EAT! Shopping does cost a fortune! X

Glad to hear you are having a relaxing and creative holiday Linda!

The mendhi medallion stamp looks so effective.

Love your technique to put the envelope pocket inside the card - perfect for giving gift cards/cash.
