I do love a mini envelope!

Hello friends

A bit late on the blogging today, one of those days when other things
take over like...watching hamsters for a good 30 minutes when
I should be doing the washing! 
In case you didn't see it on Facebook recently, my eldest son has 
moved back home and brought with him his 'kids' - two hamsters,
Roborovski hamsters - tiny! 
Thankfully I'm rodent friendly but the cats are highly intrigued,
we've made the cage like Fort Knox! 
So now my morning routine consists of feeding cats, Bella and hamsters,
they are super cute though!

Back to crafty stuff - today's card uses Mini Envelope Three.
There's something about a mini envelope that I adore and these 
are so easy to make - you can switch the inserts for the envelope flap too.

The base and frame is 6 x 6 Matting Basics.
The background is Grate Effect and Marisa's Bouquet for the pastel flowers.

Feel free to check out the Mini Envelopes here,
so nice for decorative features but also perfect to put little items inside,
photos, lottery tickets etc.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend, sun is shining here so best get that washing out!

Take care friends.

  5. Hi Christine,
    A lovely fresh, pretty card and great little envelope.
    We bought my daughter a hampster many years ago and she called him Bertie. After a few days of having him, we discovered lots of little babies in the bedding. He was a she, and the babies were so adorable.
