I'm pretty excited about how this envelope turned out! I was sending my great aunt of photos of some recent winter weather and some birds in it. I was going to write a note/letter on paper with a winter scene of a barn, pine trees, and cardinals. Inspiration suddenly hit me! I pulled out one of these blue envelopes, it took some looking to find the white pens and get them working...but it worked out, and I remembered this stamp I had that matched. After I got this image and addressed it, I decided to add a little bridge over the stream.
It didn't show up real well in the scan, but there are also "snowflakes" all over it!
I just couldn't get inspired for this envelope, but it looked sad/plain/empty un-decorated, so I just drew some quick lines, hearts, and dots on it-I think it made it much funner!
This didn't turn out perfect, but I think the paisleys got the idea across.
This was a photo card that had dots on it, so I just stenciled a lot of dots on it...easy and quick-but cute and fun!
Finally, this was a birthday card with an ice cream sundae like dessert on it, and I used the banner with the address-I found these instructions on Pinterest-and it did turned out pretty well!
I'm glad I seem to be getting back in the swing of decorating envelopes with the A Month of Letters Challenge just around the corner!
The name “Smiles Sent Saturday” denotes my hope these things I mailed made the people who got them smile.
