hello hello hello

I am such a late girl today! sorry about that - but my last few weeks have just been such a rush of things to do, things to accomplish, and things that need doing. I needed a day off. I took off today, after a rush of getting some CHA projects made and sent out. LOVE the excitement of CHA and the rush of getting new product and hurrying up to make terrific things. But I also prefer having time to think of things and really make something wonderful that I can analyze.

And yes- my announcement for the blog candy winner will be at the bottom of this post!

tonight I'm sharing this project made again with the Scor- it, but also with some really cool Teresa Collins papers. I got these beautiful file folders to work with and had fun playing with them.

I used the largest folder to make my envelope! after scoring it. I simply glued the edges together on the sides. the card slips easily between where the tab sticks up.

I used some Scenic Route papers to liven up the card and envelope as well. I also included some handcut felt stars, some candles I cut from the paper and foam dotted, bobunny ribbon, some deco scissors and lots of bits from the SR set. I used the smaller file folder as a mat, and added on top of the card.

last but not least, I used the random generator thing- and pulled the number 36- who is .....
