Thank you envelopes

Here are the little 'thank you' envelopes I have cut using my Cricut and the new cart I got, 'Going Places'. I've made these to take to California in June to leave in the hotel rooms for the maid with their 'tip'.

Some of the envelopes have 'Thank You' stamped on the outside and some have it stamped onto a card which is inside. The $1 bill (the only one I had in the house!) sticks out, but I still like the idea!
So, has it been snowy where you are? It has been freezing here and last Sunday we woke up to 8" of snow.
I put this photo on Facebook and had people in stitches laughing. I really didn't notice which ruler I had picked up - I definitely didn't notice that I was pointing to Chronic Pain! With Hugh working in the medical field we get a lot of freebies like this from exhibitions.
It looked so pretty, but I hate it! Having said that, I did do this:

And then persuaded Hugh to do this:
His snow angel was a lot better than mine, so I only took a photo of his!
To finish off these snowy photos, here is Penny with the snowman she made and named 'Tiny'.
I hope you are all keeping warm and safe! Have a happy weekend.

I'd quite like a little bit of snow - all we have here is freezing fog! Your photos have made it look like a lot of fun

We had a couple of inches earlier in the week and 1cm yesterday and some freezing rain of all things. Love the snow angel that is a beauty and the ruler :0)

The thank you envelopes look great - I like the cut out design so you can see what's inside. I'm not a big fan of the snow but you're right it does look pretty! Just had to say that the ruler looked v familiar to me - my BIL works for said company so we have had post-its, pens etc emblazoned with those details too!

We had loads of snow last Sunday....and much of it is still here as it's too cold for it to melt!!
Love your little 'thank you' envelopes.

Your little envelopes will give so much pleasure in themselves ... We've not been playing snow angels up here (only got 5 inches) but after the freezing rain, you could stand on the snow and not sink in it. It'll still be here by Easter!

No snow for us here in Texas (YIPPEE!). I really like those Thank YOu envelopes for traveling. I have that cartridge & will have to try that next time we go on a big trip.

Such pretty photos, but I am not envious of you! I lived with snow for a year while I was away at college, and I don't know how you do it! I did love playing in it though, so have fun!

I adore your envelopes, and it's great your so prepared

I would never have thought to make those adorable envelopes. I don't have a Cricut, but I'd love to find a cut out like those for the Silhouette! We finally have gotten a bit of snow, but no one is much interested in it here except the neighbor's children who had enough for a snowman.
