Envelope greeting card holder

Hi everyone, this week we are making a card holder made from two envelopes, a terrific gift for your
non-cardmaking friends, it is sooooo simple to make, but the ones I have given out have been very well received! you can decorated them in any way you wish, a digi image, flowers, rubber stamps, I will have lots of choices on the day.  I leave next Thursday for Perth, I am going to visit a couple of friends of mine that I met at different workshops with Floral Punchcraft, it is lovely to be able to go and visit them, and I am really looking forward to it, although not to the heatwave they are having at the moment! it has been over 40C there for a week or more, I am really hoping it will break either before we arrrive, or not long after LOL, but I suppose we will cope.........we think we get it hot in NSW but our maximum is usually about 35C and that is too hot for a delicate little English girl like me!!

Valentines card

A little early I know, but was requested by some of you ladies to teach you how to make the card with box that I made for your Christmas cards, couldn't really do another Christmas card so Valentines day is the next holiday coming up, of course you can decorate it how you want to, I got the pattern from and think it is such a great design for a few chocolates or a trinket to be given.  Hope you enjoy being back, but remember it is only two lessons, then I will be away all of February as I am going on my Jollies to Perth to visit friends. Happy New Year to all my lovely followers!! I know I have been sadly neglectful of visiting you all for the last month but I have just been sooo busy, we have had the wonderful news that my son and his family are really really coming home this year from Japan to live, I have always said, I hope they do but I won't hold my breath, but this time it is happening as he has booked the airfares, they arrive on the 3rd May.  I have been frantically sorting and donating and binning 30yrs worth of clutter to give them some space, they will live with me until they get settled and get jobs and their own home.  I am sooo thankful xxx
