I'm making a quick departure from the tag-making excursion (4 sets of 10 are now done - I'll be sharing Round 3 shortly, and Round 4 soon, then 5, 6 and 7 down the road...), to show you the coin envelope that I made to accompany the Advent Calendar I made for my niece. Along with a daily activity, each day also has a few coins, which she'll collect, save in her envelope and then, during the Christmas church celebration, put into the donation basket for children less fortunate. When I chatted with her on the phone last Sunday, she was delighted to see the calendar (yayyyy...Happy Aunty C!), but noticed right away the missing envelope. Situation addressed: envelope made and then delivered in person by my husband on his recent trip.
My envelope's inspired by Retro Sketches #92 -
A wonderful opportunity to play with my 3 X 4 scalloped envelope die, my circle and bow dies, a few new stamps and some fun, festive patterned paper...
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
