Cards in Envy - New Challenge

I recently received a handmade card in the mail with very evenly spaced holes in the envelope and bling showing through.  Sometimes making a card that fits in an envelope without requiring extra postage and/or hand canceling can often be a bit challenging.   Having one arrive unscathed becomes a celebration.  The gals at Cards in Envy have created a new blog challenge tailored to this issue.  The #1 requirement of the cards made is that they fit in an envelope with no worries about postage, etc.  What a great idea!

Cards in Envy has just posted their first challenge.  It's a very simple sketch challenge.

I am entering this card

in both the Cards in Envy Challenge and the Send a Smile 4 Kids Easter/Spring Challenge.
Here's a second card I made based on this sketch.  I just love this little birdie paper I picked up last week.


  1. That bird stamp is lovely, especially the tone on tone with the blue. Thanks for joining the Cards in Envy challenge!!

  2. Adorable little chicks! Love the paper your chose as well as the little bird stamps. Thank you for joining us at Cards in Envy. I hope to see more of your cards in our next challenge!
