For my Creative Crew Sweets Challenge I created a Favor Envelope. I am in the process of making several of these for Thanksgiving on Thursday for family. My favor envelope was created from a everyday envelope that I stamped and colored with glittery stickles. The inside was lined with orange paper and a harvest sticker was added in the inside flap. I added ribbon to the outside Thanksgiving Blessings tag that holds my envelope closed. What a fun and inexpensive treat for a holiday dinner.

Hi! I am married, & have 2 fantastic sons, Adam who is 24 and Ian who is 18. After college Adam became a fitness instructor and just recently started his own fitness company ARC Fitness.
Ian graduated from High School & works at Sam's Club and goes to school at IUPUI. I have been involved in crafting and sewing for most of my life. My grandmother taught me how to sew. As early as I can remember, I have crocheted and sewed. Along with my sisters, I made and sold crafts for years at local craft shows in Indiana. I became interested in making cards awhile ago and became addicted. So much so that I converted our unused living room into a craft studio! I just LOVE making cards & scrapbooking family memories. I have learned so much from many of my fellow card makers on ebay! I do work full time in Recreation Therapy. I love working with the elderly! I have done this for over 27 years! Thanks for visiting my Blog... It is a work in process...
