Envelobox and some cards :)

Hi everyone,
As Lee isn't here, I have moved my desk and craft draws into the living room so I am nice and warm and have a tv to watch!  It's really nice :)   I would prefer Lee to be here instead!  I am missing him loads.   At least he should get me some Lucky charms from the shop that sells American food.  I miss Lucky Charms SO much!!

I have 3 cards to show you that i've been working on since yesterday AND I have the most fantastic Envelope/box to show you!  It's called Envelobox.
Envelobox first I think!

Not a too good photo.. I did take one from the front too but when I looked at it on the pc it sucked!  This is SO easy to make and will fit 6x6 cards and it has enough room to put your cards with chunky bits in :)  This is all thanks to Heather who made this and then was so kind to make a tutorial for it!  Click here to see it  You HAVE to see it, you will really love it :) 
The paper I used is Basic grey which was only 10p!  I LOVE the pattern on it.

Now for my cards.
I have made these for people in The Crafty Rak Birthday club.  I have 1 more to make too.  As there are 4 people I am going to send them to, I can post them here and they won't know which they are getting if they see!
Card 1:

I really like this!  I love how I have put the image and the green background.  I have mounted the image with foam twice  and the scallop circle mounted once.  I LOVE this ribbon!!  I heat embossed the sentiment and sponged some green on it and the gems are coloured with my promarkers.
I am entering this for some challenges too:
Crafty Cardmakers - Tricolour.  I have hopefully used Split Complimentary.  Orange's, Green's and blue's

I really enjoyed doing this one.  I adore this image!  I followed the sketch over at Lilly of the valley.  I love sketchers, they give me loads of ideas.
I have made this for some more challenges:
Simon says Stamp challenge at PCP - Use, Dark Brown, Vanilla and teal.  
Instyle Stamps - Flowers

And the last card:

I love Annika!  She stamps so well.  I stamped and heat embossed the background on this.  Usually I stamp background and throw them away because I really dislike them, but I really like this one!  I followed the sketch at I love Promarkers. I saw this and knew it would be a challenge.  I didn't think i'd have enough space and I didn't want to cover the background up too much!  Also as it has 2 images, I am entering it for Polly craft Monday challenge which is to use 2 images!  I have been looking at this challenge for over a week now and trying to make a card for it!  I am really glad I finally have. Also Flutterby Wednesdays are having a open challenge so this is being entered for that.  I want to enter this for Simon says challenge too which is Vintage without flowers.  I'm not too sure how vintage this looks.  I always associate vintage with distressing which I have done!  Finally Alota Rubber stamps theme is distressing so this fits with that too!

Thanks for visiting me and have a lovely day :)
