'Sweet Mates' deserve something sweet...

Hi Everyone

As I have mentioned before both my daughter are away at university - the youngest is fairly close by (about 40 minutes away.)  She has had a few trials during her freshman and now her sophomore year - which include  (but not limited to) a trip to the emergency room and most recently her car getting broken into.  Each time there has been an 'incident' the girls who she shares living accommodation with (her 'suite-mates') have been there to help her through.

Each of the 3 girls has recently had a birthday, and so I decided that I would send each of these girls a little gift to let them know we appreciate what "Sweet Mates" they are to Phoebe.

These are little note folders, with note paper, pen and a little pocket inside.  All the images on the front covers are from Saturated Canary and are coloured with Letraset ProMarkers.

I had so much fun choosing papers and colouring these images.  Here is a look at what is inside.

For instructions on how to make these folders check out the youtube video by Yani Ramos.

Of course I had to make Phoebe one of these as well.  (The image I coloured is extremely appropriate considering the trip to the emergency room was after roller skating - round the lake - with no safety equipment on!!!!)

I have also entered this note card into the challenge over at I Love ProMarkers.

Thanks for stopping by today.
