A Gift for Anna - 3 in 1!

First, I made an envelope from an old calendar - two cute kittens playing :)

The front of the card.  The cardstock is leftover from my wedding invitations, the corner punch from my MIL, the letter stickers from a scrapbooking kit I purchased when I went to Alaska on a cruise, and the flower picture is actually from a promotional flyer that I thought was really pretty!

The first fold of the card.  More of the promotional flyer, decorated with stars, circles, and flowers fastened with brads.  I kind of went brad crazy on this card - 15 of them!  The decorations are mine, the brads from a friend.  The quote is from a friendship calendar I received from a friend a few years back.

Aww :)  More cruise ship stickers, decorations and my friend's brads.

The last fold of the card has a flower from the friendship calendar I got the quote from, and room for a personal message.

I didn't want to waste any of the pretty promotional card so I used the remainder on the back. 

And here is her gift!  The pattern is "Bernard the Fox"  except she wanted it black (I'm pretty sure!), so black it was.

I definitely have some learning to do with my amigurumi.  Apparently I'm not making the stitches tight enough and that is why the stuffing shows through.  At least this one just makes him look like he has spots!  The really cool thing about the legs is that they have pipe cleaner inside of them and they are bendable, so you can make different poses!  Neat :)

Bernard taking a nap - *yawn*  Wish I could join him!!  Happy Wednesday everyone... <3 JEM
