Mini card

Okay, so I just got the Mini envelope template which has 5 mini envelope templates on one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. I decided to test it out by making an envelope for a 1 1/4 inch square card. The cardstock is again from my hostess bonus pack in Real Red. I then used a piece of whisper white cardstock to make the card. I stamped it with the spring tree stamp from A Tree for All Seasons stamp and colored using markers. Inside I wrote a little note to my kids and left it on the table one morning when I left for work. It was a big hit. Ally, my 5 year old, always asks me for something to remember me by while I am at work, and she was so excited to have this little card. So much in fact, that when I came home from work, there was a new little card in the envelope. This one for me. She had cut a piece of pink paper for the card. She drew me a picture of a tulip on pink paper, cut it out and then matted it onto a piece of white paper. She glued it to the front of the card and then signed all the kids names inside. It was so wonderful to get. She really loves to do crafts and make cards. Don't you think she does a great job?
I know that I will be using this envelope template a lot when Ally starts kindergarten this fall. A little love note tucked in her snack bag.

I love the card that Ally made for you. It is cute! It's funny how a little card can make someones day. I love the cards you make. You always have great ideas and that is why I enjoy getting together and making cards together. To get ideas from you and others!
