I've missed the last two weeks of posting, but I've been busy writing letters! I've already written more than eight letters, but I'm still trying to send one every week. For week six, I sent two Valentine's Day cards, for week seven I sent a handmaid card to a friend, and this week's letter went to my great aunt. I wasn't sure if I'd get any replies, but after writing fourteen letters, I finally got three replies!
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the Valentine cards that I made for my pen pals. :( I was so excited to seal the envelope and get them in the mail! I made a card out of red card stock and wrote "Happy St. Valentine's Day" in cursive. You'll just have to imagine there's a picture. :) I did however take pictures of the matching envelopes.

just torn the edges and glued them to the
envelope, with a green square for the address
Last week, I made a card for a friend that I haven't seen since August. I cut a few inches off of a piece of orange card stock, folded it in half, and the card was made. It's that easy! I'm learning calligraphy so I tried it on the card and for the first time on the envelope. To finish it off, I added a 3D flower sticker on the card.
|I kept it simple, but I like how it looks!|

butterfly scrapbook paper on the envelope
|Isn't this color scheme just great?|
|The wonderful envelope!|
