These are a bunch of envelopes for a swap I am in on my Yahoo group. The lady who is running it (Susan Guzy) has a plethora of envelopes so she decided to share the wealth and have a "decorated envelope" swap. I have to say that at first I was not all "hyped up" about doing the swap like I usually am, but once I got rolling I found I didn't want to stop. The only drawback is that now I want to decorate any envelope that leaves the house and I just don't have the time to do it. Come December when I make all of my Christmas cards it will be very hard not to want to decorate the envelopes too.

Wonderful envelopes. I always try to decorate my envelopes when I send out my ATCs, sometimes it takes longer than the card itself and I get wrong off the lady in the post office as there is nowhere left to put the postage!!

Valerie, you did SUCH an AWESOME job on these. :)
Now I feel intimidated, LOL!

Love your artwork! I am very partial to the top three and the bird themed envelopes. However, they are all eye-candy!

These are really stunning. I'd want to put the card in the decorated envelope and the whole thing in another envelope so as not to spoil the artwork!! x

These are lovely - although I think if I had made them I wouldn't want to give them away. Jaqui x
