simple creations

A few weeks ago I found out that my oldest friend, who I have known since I was three, is having a baby. So I sent her a little parcel of baby-related goodies, and made a mini card. 

{when I sat down to make the card, the phrase ooh baby, baby came to mind from the song Push it by Salt 'n' Pepa, and I couldn't work out then, or now, if it's inappropriate & weird, but hey, I went with it anyway. Maybe if this was a singing card it would make it inappropriate....}

I don't know why I decided to make a smaller-than-normal sized card - maybe because babies are so small - but anyway, I needed an envelope for it. So I re-used an idea that I'd had for our wedding last year, where I made envelopes for the children out of an old children's book that I rescued from the bin at the school where I used to work.

So simple, but I like them. (Sorry if they cause offense to anyone who has a problem with me cutting up books, but I promise I don't make a habit out of this unless they're old & ripped & falling apart...)
