Speedy Fox & Friends 170 - Tie it up

I hope you are enjoying a nice weekend.  We are taking deep breaths of our second to last Saturday before school starts.   Our daughter is at band camp today and that means our vacation time is just about to draw to an end.  I always find the end of summer a very sad time and this year is no exception.

So on a happier note let's chat about this week's challenge at Speedy Fox & Friends!  Our challenge this week is to TIE IT UP!  For lovely inspiration from my teammates and to find out all the details please visit HERE .

For my card I created this cute envelope and TIED it up, then I filled the envelope with tags.
For the sentiments, I used MFPSaHC sets: "Presents" and "Columns & Topiaries".  The "Hope" sentiment was computer generated.  I chose the sentiments on my tags to coordinate with the inside sentiment that wishes the recipient, "Hope, Joy  and Peace".  

Thanks for looking!

Be sure to stop by Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps a HC blog, next week for a fun Christmas in July blog hop.  I will have a fun treat holder to share on the 31st!  MFPSaHC is giving away one of my favorite Christmas sets at the end of the hop!

I used 4 stamp sets to create my card: 

Paper: Bazzill Basics - Believe, Recollections - Essentials Distressed.
Acces: Sizzix Scallop Lace Envelope, Spellbinders Splendid Circles, MFT Traditional Tags, ribbon, twine, button


  1. Love your checked tags with the pretty red envelope. Just so adorable. Christmas is coming fast. Can't believe it is almost school time again.
    Hubby and I walk at the park almost every afternoon after he leaves work and I am noticing the days getting shorter. I don't like it. Summer is my time and I'm dreading winter.
