A gift for you


Merry belated Christmas!  I had a lovely Christmas yesterday surrounded by family.  We ate way too much and had lots of laughs.  Except for not having any snow, it was the perfect day.  (I even got a delightful pack of Echo Park Christmas paper and a bunch of Copic markers- Santa was gooood to me! <3)  Anyway, just wanted to pop in with a quick project I made to house a check.  This envelope was in my stash of "things to alter at some point" and luckily the check juuuust fit inside by a hair.  I covered it with DCWV paper, and embellished with a Woodware penguin stamp and a sentiment by Hampton Arts.  I added some buttons from my stash and that was it.  It came together pretty quickly, but I think it jazzed up the check's presentation quite a bit!  :)

Today we're getting pelted with wind and snow, and I'll probably have to call out of work tomorrow- we could be getting up to a foot!  Love it!  I've been working on using my Christmas paper scraps to make my thank you cards.  I have about 50 to make (my dad needs about 20 for his students, and I got a ton of little gifts at work, so I'll be a busy bee!) and I've only made about 10 so far.  Tomorrow would be the perfect day to catch up!  Anyway, I hope you all had a cozy Christmas!  Stay tuned for pictures of my co-workers' Christmas gifts- I used clear boxes to house my cards and they came out really cute!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
