ok, Homerof2, you are seriously scaring me right now. we did four of the same things for this swap; we both used business letter envelopes to mail our pocket letters, we both made sure the envelopes were taped well (but you used fun tape which I don't have), we both typed our letters, and we both sent each other a similar (not the same) extra. spooky...
first we have the cards themselves!
my favorites would have to be...all of them! what makes them so special is that Homer took all of these pictures herself (well, the middle one is actually a pretty piece of ribbon! ooo...we also used ribbon on one of the cards we made for each other)! the pictures of the crows and ravens were taken locally, and the pictures of the pumpkins and scarecrows were taken in Nova Scotia during the fall when she and her hubby were celebrating their anniversary. so if you couldn't tell, she decided to go with my autumn theme.
and my crow/raven theme, but really, they fit into the autumn theme too. she also added in a bit of glitter and sparkle, which crows and ravens (and I) just happen to like.
next we have the goodies tucked into the pockets!
lots of fun things here. there's some sparkly tape and some glitter tape, monster tags, some cute stickers (I love those emoji ones!), paper ephemera of various kinds, self-stick rhinestones (I can never have too many of these), and a great little snowflake magnetic bookmark! you'd never know this from my list of themes, but I do love snowflakes. that's kind of a hint at your pocket letter, Homer.
also, it was a GREAT idea to use card protectors to put things in. I should have thought of that.
in other words, be careful opening the envelope. things may go flying. lol
lastly, I just had to take a picture of the back of the envelope because of the tape used to seal it.
it's peppermint candy tape!!! lol!!! that is seriously cute!!! I'm keeping the section of tape because I want to find a way to use it. lol
thank you SO much, Homerof2. I love everything you gave me. now if the postal service would just hurry up and get mine to you!
