All Enveloped Up....

 
I hope each of you have a Priority Friend.....
and that you make friends a priority!
 

I am certainly fortunate in friends and love them because
they bring an incredible balance to my life.
 
I love that a true friend can speak the truth and it's said with love.
That you can bounce ideas off of them and they'll dream crazy dreams with you!
They'll share their chocolate.... and their coffee.... and even go on a diet with you.
They'll cry with you, laugh with you, hug you (all in five minutes!)
And, mostly, because they're always there!

 
So back to my card... it's Ten Minute Tuesday!
Did you notice that I got it posted early, early in the morning? Speaking of priorities - whew... things are back on schedule again and I like that.
 
So this isn't an envelope, it's a card. A standard size card which opens on the left. 
 



Here's what you need:
Whisper White card stock:
4-1/4" x 11" - for card base 2" x 5-1/2" - for flap
Cherry Cobbler card stock:
punch out four hearts
                    Baker's Twine:                     
28"
 
Crumb Cake ink and a sponge

Priority Mail (hostess) stamp set

Directions:
1)  With pencil, lightly mark the center point (2-3/4" mark) on
     the Whisper White, 2" x 5-1/2".

2)  Angle cut it as shown from that center point to each end.
3)  Sponge around edges of card and card flap using Crumb
     Cake ink.

4)  Stamp "Priority Friend" in lower right hand corner of card
     front using Crumb Cake ink.

4)  Adhere flap to card front using Glue Dots.
5) Tie Baker's Twine around front of card.
6) Punch out four hearts from Cherry Cobbler card stock and
    adhere onto ends of Baker's Twine using Glue Dots.

7) Send it to a "priority friend"!

And remember....
No matter how much you push the envelope, it's still just stationary!
