Wee! My lovely envelope arrived from Avesthel today! It is so perfect... blues and greens, an adorable owl, and metallic paint (ssshhh. I am in love with gold paint markers for some reason...).

And look at the stamps! Silver coffee pots! Could it be any more perfect?

And the back... reminds me of one of my all-time favorite paintings.

It was stuffed with a bookmark, some WoW paper, a picture of birds <3, and the most adorable little paper folding houses.

Naturally, I had to make one right away. See how cute! I love this idea... It's about an inch wide, and maybe an inch and a half tall.

Thank you so much, Avesthel! It was such a nice treat to find in the mailbox after a long day at work!

I've never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.

I love the house.

I received from onecrazymom.

She sent a Blythe post card, ATC, and book mark plus lots of other little extras. I can't wait to make some ATCs with them.

Thank you!

Lovely envelope, michelleandbean!   Smiley

85%confusion - I'm so glad you enjoyed your envelope and little goodies!   Cheesy   Yes!  I found that painting on your wist and used it as inspiration!   Very glad the idea came across.   Cheesy   The coffee pot stamps were pure luck!    Cheesy    And the little house template idea I saw in one of the 44cent swap galleries.  I forget which one now, but I thought it was an adorable idea and so drafted out my own template for you.   Smiley   The girl she made them for was wanting to make little inchie houses like Phizzychick made here:

Oh my - so great!  Honestly, what wonderful creativity from everyone.    Cheesy

I got this fabulous envelope from ThriftyLiving4U:

First the front:

I used to drive my mother crazy singing the little bunny foo foo song when I was a kid.  This totally made me laugh.  Smiley

And the back:

It's hard to see in the picture, but the cute little houses and flowers are highlighted with metallic gold marker.

And finally - inside, she sent me this great collection of papers for future crafting:

I've already decided to put several of them on stiff backing for bookmarks.   I just love it all!

I received Friday but have been absolutely buried by work, so I;m just now posting..cmarion3 sent an absolutely beautiful decorated envelope with matching coordinated stationary inside that was wrapped up just beautifully!  What is hard to tell is that these have lovely semi-translucent qualities in place -- I just love the craftsmanship!

Thank you for a lovely work of art!
