The Envelope Please...

I was recently blessed by some friends with a new laptop and wanted to make them a special thank you. I paired up some fun Crafty Secrets products, MME paper and PTI die to make this card. Lisa's card was a springboard for this creation. Like the lady in this picture the thought of a computer - was on the drawing board but know where in the near future. There is a cute little flying pig with this stamp set that I am going to incorporate in my note. The definition of Imagination is on the Tom Holtz tape.

I had the opportunity to view a great tutorial on PTI's  Make It Monday about packaging cards which inspired the  envelope above using one of their special issued stamps.  The focus was dealing with cards larger then A2 or those with embellishments. This card qualified on both accounts.

I also needed to make a wedding card which is past due. My card was inspired by this card on SCS .

And the envelope please....
 You know it's a good day when I  get to stamp on an envelope and then get it in the mail too - WOW! So needless to say I enjoyed playing dress up with these envelopes. Now grant it I won't be placing these in the mail but I will be able to deliver them with a smile : )
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can find the extraordinary in the ordinary of your day!

Hope you are well my friend and trying to stay warm. It was crazy windy all night here ... not sure what that's an indication of but I'm sure it's not good since the temps are to drop to the teens!
It's always SO NICE to see your name pop up on my email screen! God knows you have a full plate but I'm thrilled to see you taking a little time for yourself!
