Here below is what I made for the November Alumni blog hop.....enjoy.

...A gift voucher envelope is always handy to have on hand for those special occasions when you haven't had time to shop for a gift....or....what do you give when they already have
Cash or a gift voucher and now you can wrap it up in a card made with love.

Please NOTE! This is a limited edition and will not be available anymore after the 8th of December 2018. After that it becomes a collectors item....
So if you do not have this and have been wanting to invest in your Heartfelt Creations is last your chance to get this beautiful timeless collection. 
A couple points of interest, this is the first of the die sets to match the stamps in the new Heartfelt Creations branding about 4 years ago and the Heartfelt Creations own exclosive pink die designs.
when this collection was released it sold out with in weeks! The peacock dies were released later than the original for thought. I for one am sorry to see this go but I am sure there will be something just as exciting to replace this collection.
