Envelope Special!

Happy Wednesday!


And now for something completely different...


Stamps: SU!
Paper: K&Co dp
Ink: SU! 
Other: envelope, string, button,
lace, Harvest handmade sticker. 

We have a new Creative Belli challenge for you today!  We're digging into our stash for string this time, any type will do!  Pop over to the challenge blog to see all the creative ways our lovely designers used string on their projects!

I decided to have a play with an envelope instead of a card this time.  Thought it might be a fun way to hand deliver a note!   Hoping it will bring a smile!

Let there be JOY in everything you do!
Blessings!
