Cooking With Cricut Challenge #82- National Card and Letter Writing Month!

Happy Wednesday and welcome to another wonderful Cooking with Cricut challenge! It is National Card and Letter Writing Month and so our challenge to you is to create something for yourself or someone else in the spirit of writing letters, the old fashioned way! With the speed of technology today, this may be a true challenge for some, but I remember the good ol' days of pen-pals and enchanging letters with my bff in California for many years very fondly.  Nothing compares!
I made a traditional stationary set for my 4 year old niece, Hannah. Although her letter writing skills may not yet be the most sophisticated, I hope it will encourage her to use her pretty butterfly stationary for whatever her little heart desires, practice her alphabet or even draw a picture! I love the idea of my sister helping her address a letter and sending it off in the mail- signed, sealed and delivered :)
 I made my stationary set with the Tie The Knot cartridge (stationary paper, butterflies, sponged the negative image of butterfly in the corner of each envelope, 2 ea in matching colors with the stationary)
Paper for stationary holder: Webster's Pages "Your Life. Beautiful.", sentiment from My Creative Time
I hope you will join in our challenge this week and inspire someone you know to write a letter! And you might be our next Top Chef if you do! Visit the Cooking With Cricut blog for more crafting ideas and challenge details. Thanks for visiting and have a creative day!

These are absolutely gorgeous, Linsey! I love the shaped note cards and the stenciled butterfly on the envelope is such a nice touch.
