Odds and Ends

Hi there.  Today I was able to get quite a bit of crafting done, between my spin class and my crazy afternoon driving around.

I made another card for this week's Retro Sketches #46.  I had a piece of stamped paper left over from this Make it Monday project that I really wanted to use, and I also was curious to see how that dutch oven from Foodie Fun would look embossed with UTEE. 

I also made a few smaller cards and decorated envelopes with Washi Tape for this week's Simon Says Challenge, which is to use washi tape.  I am going to enter the envelopes into this week's Make it Monday #100, which is all about how to package cards with oversized embellishments.  I am stretching a bit, as these are undersized, but I think the principles are the same.

These might look familiar to you.  They are designed to accompany these card sets, that I made for Rachel to give to two of her teachers.
