  1. Isn't she just too cute! Loving the shape you used also. I need to pull out my Gypsy and try welding shapes...I bet I could figure it out if I just tried. What is the best size to fit in a standard envelope? I think that is always my concern...wasting my favorite paper finding the right size.

    Stay Creative,
