Just A Little Note

Hello my friends in Blogland. Thank you for once again popping over to see what I'm doing.

My Card
Well actually, I decided to make a set of notelets  to have on hand in case I needed a quick gift. I like the CAS style of them. Please bear with me because this post is rather picture-heavy I'm afraid.

I used white cardstock and cut six 6x4 cards. I embossed more white card with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and mounted it  onto lilac Bazzil Basics. The animal stamps were two different sets which were both magazine freebies from a very long time ago. The sentiment stamps are from Stampendous "Wildflower Sprigs". On  reflection I could have embellished the inside of the packet  but I've never done anything like this before and I  just wanted to get the pockets right. I know there are probably loads of tutorials about his, but I decided to go it on my own and it seems to have turned out okay, except for the lack of internal embellishments, and that's not the end of the world. The next one will be better I'm sure.

Well that's me done for now. I'm hoping it's not as cold as Sunday because it was absolutely bitterly cold and very windy. Have a good day everybody.
