Thankful {things I love} Thursday...

What a wonderful surprise I had the other day, when I found the latest Stampers' Sampler
magazine poking out of my mailbox.
 
A few of my watercolour envelopes were inside.
 
I love creating these ~ they are super easy and make sending a note to a friend & loved one just that little bit more special ♥
All you need are a few Manila envelopes, watercolours & favourite stamps. I use the pages of damaged books that I've picked up at garage sales and charity shops to create in a lot of my art work, and for the envelopes, they were turned into flower petals, leaves  and hearts :-D
Embellish with some ribbon and buttons and slip a lovely handwritten note inside xo
 
I am so Thankful to  have my work published in this amazing magazine! 
GRATITUDE
can transform
common days
into
Thanksgivings
turn
routine jobs
into joy
and change
ordinary opportunities
into blessings
