Happy Mother's Day

Work day for me, but hope you mother's are having a lovely day.  Always a little sad with my mom & grandmas gone, but happy memories of those loving women that made a difference in my life.  I'll get kisses from puppy Fritz when I get home--he's a sweetie!  
I don't usually decorate envelopes, but didn't want to miss the PTI MIM envelope wrap challenge.  I pulled out the card I made for the watercolor splotches challenge & made a very simple wrap with room to write the recipient's name.  The Distress Inks are what I used for the card: faded jeans, broken china, salty ocean & peacock feathers.  Stamps are PTI Snowflake Flurries.  I splattered the envelope with the same inks mixed with some water.  Dots of Stickles add a touch of sparkle, just like on the card. Fun idea--might make some more for cards I hand carry.  Thanks for taking time to visit my blog.

So sorry you had to work on Mother's Day, but I"m sure Fritz will give you a BIG welcome home!! I love that you made your PTI challenge envelope to match a former PTI card. It's wonderful too!
