Eeek!...a matching envelope!


Hi there! Just popping in really quickly to share a card and matching envelope I created for the most recent challenge at Young Crafters Unite!


I rarely create a coordinating envelope for my cards, but this challenge really got me excited about the idea again!!! It's such an easy thing to do and it adds that extra little something special to a project!!! FUN!


We have a few "bat friends" who like to fly in figure 8 patterns just beyond our back deck each night right around dusk. It's fun to watch them dive after flying insects and listen to their little "eeeks"! So, this card was inspired by them! I drew the eeek trail with a black Copic Multiliner pen. That idea was inspired by THIS card by Chari where she made a heart-shaped trail (THANKS, Chari!!!).

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a FABULOUS weekend!
