Zoo Day - font for August and 2017
Close To My Heart, Flower Market - Wreath and roses

Pink Polka Dot ribbon

For the photo corners, I cut 2" squares.
Then I cut those in 1/2 at an angle to make 2 triangles.
Then I cut those 2 triangles in 1/2 again.

Bicycle Fun Fold Card

Hi, everyone! Today's card is bigger than the normal A2 size I usually make, but I love it! This card folded for mailing is 5 1/2" square. I guess I'll be using my Envelope punch board to make a custom envelope - which is always fun!

Mixture of cardstock from Stampin' Up, Recollections, and Cricut.
Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere some elements along with SU Mini Glue Dots & Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Simon Says Stamp, Uplifting Thoughts for the sentiment stamped with SU Melon Mambo ink.

I love it! And I know exactly who I'm going to mail this to.

There you go! Got my envelope created easy peasy with the Envelope Punch Board.
Thanks for visiting with me today. You have no idea how much I look forward to reading your comments. It's how I start my morning because they always make me smile.

Hi, everyone! 

The stamp set I used on today's card is on of my favorite Stampin' Up sets. Why? Because it's a mix of shapes and sentiments. The cool thing about shapes is that you can create abstract, or build a picture, or use them for accents, etc. They are also fabulous for creating your own pattern paper or background on your projects.
