WOYWW #232 - Busy Making Envelopes

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  Today is Wednesday, so I am sharing what is on my work desk with you!  Thank you to Julia for all the desk-hopping fun!

Last week you may recall I showed my new envelope punch board.  Tonight I broke it out to make some fun Christmas envelopes.  The paper is from Tim Holtz's seasonal paper pad. There is something about those vintage images that I just adore!




Here is a top shot of the desk.  You may spot a pair of tiny Thanksgiving stamps out as I was making some cards for family and friends the other day.  There is a decorated bottle cap there that you may spot.  I stamped the image and inserted it into the bottle cap and covered it with Glossy Accents.  Not sure what project that will end up on!

Thanks for visiting today!  I hope to visit with a lot of you today!

Hello, My daughter would just love this, she is a big Tim fan :-) I dont know if Im going to make cards or not this year. I bought a awesome cute box last year and never used them.. really I couldnt find them. Let hope this year I can use them to get that one thing out of the house. lol Thanks and have a great day.
