 Hello everyone,

Do you remember those paper envelopes I got all excited about and made not one but about 34 of them..well, they sat for a while, had some ideas and they sat a bit more, until I felt the need to decorate them..

These ones went a little bit country..a white daisy or

with yellow centers...

Cute but needed something else.......

Which led to my button collection, oh, 
I had fun with my buttons,
it's been a long time..

So I went with the simple small white buttons,
 but found these cute teapot ones and nearly went with it..

I loved the clear buttons..

This is all I have left, must go button hunting at the thrift shops, you never know when you made need clear buttons.

Then envelopes with a bit of yellow in the papers needed yellow flowers,
so, die cut this one, inked it up,

and it looked quite good..

Just needed some leaves to share with them all..

and inked them up too, it really makes a difference..

popped leaves in place..

and the yellows were done...

The reds had a treatment too...

They came out nice...
same flower too and can look quite different in another colour..

The purple turn, and this time I added something..

I die cut the heart, inked it and added it to the string on the tag..

They look so nice..

So out they all came again...

and they ALL got hearts on their string..

So, there you go, now they look so much prettier..
I can add gift cards, add them onto my size cards or any sort of stuff like that..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you soon..

luv CHRISSYxx
