Envelopes--Done!

Guess what??? I am finished with all of them! I have been working many hours during the day. I actually enjoyed it. They got looking better and better as I went along. I am sorry for all of the A's and B's. They are not as good.

You did a good job on the envelopes, Martha!!!!
I love to write Copperplate. I've made my wedding invitation myself and it was all written in Copperplate. I'm still very proud of it and I hope you are proud about the envelopes!

Truly lovely! These set a very elegant tone for the upcoming wedding. Even the mail delivery person will take notice when delivering these. Well done.

Nice job, Martha! I always start at the back of the list, so the envelopes get better as they get closer to the front of the list. ; ) xoxo
