Flamingo Fun!

Not sure when my semi-obsession with Flamingoes began, but my guest bathroom is decorated with them. 
This LO is with Webster's Palm Beach "Flamingo Fun" paper, a tag I made recently and some odd and end letters spelling out "F" words that remind me of words to describe Flamingoes. Zoe, my Build A Bear Workshop Flamingo, is also pictured here. I gave myself a pink shiny wing with the "Love Takes Flight" squeeze punch. You can win one here:

I used my sewing machine to stitch around the photo. Later I added a wing to the flamingo too.

This is the card only, and it shows off the GORGEOUS embroidered wrapping paper I got from a local gift and stationary store - MUG & PIA (Most Unusual Gifts & Paper Items Anywhere). I think I will use it to make a book. 

A special card needs a special envelope.  Thank you Mark Montano.  Mark recently made some envelopes with book pages.  I now have my sewing machine conveniently located in my crafting area so I can stitch on a whim (and on paper).
Thanks for stopping by.  What are you going to craft today?  Are you going to try envelopes?


  1. I like your blog! will come over from time to time.

  2. I love your layout and that envelope is awesome. I'm working toward having my sewing machine set up too.

  3. Fab layout, card and envelope Donna!!!

    I especially love the card and tailor made envelope - it is now sitting in pride of place at my house - THANK YOU :)
