Birthday Surprise! ~ MMSC44

This week I've used an image from Delicious Doodles to make a birthday card for my nephew. Then I also made a "Slide Top" envelope using Priscilla's super easy and awesome template kit. I have to say I haven't been a big fan of making my own envelopes, but now that I've been using Priscilla's template kits I'm really starting to enjoy the process of making a coordinating envelope for special occasions. :) They really are SO EASY to use!!!


Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Enter one of each if you like!


Enter one style or both this week.

Just have fun and come play with us :)
