Happy Day!

Hello!  I hope you are having a happy day today.  I've been busy crafting most of the day so far, which makes it happy for me, although my house may be feeling a little neglected.  This has been a year of transition for me with my youngest now in school, and I've found that I really need to keep myself busy while I'm at home.  It sure makes me thankful for the hobby of cardmaking and scrapbooking that I truly enjoy.

Today's card is for the Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge.  This month's challenge was to use an envelope on your card.  I made a little envelope from my Stampin' Up envelope templates.  I've had those for a few years and haven't broken them out in a while.  I thought it was a perfect little envelope to put a sucker or little candy treat into.  Just a little something extra that would be fun for a child's birthday party. 

I've also been making some cards for the PaperCrafts Gallery Idol 2010 contest.  The first entry is for Thank You cards, and these are my first 2 entries.

Enjoy your day!
