It’s always a HAPPY DAY when I receive HAPPY MAIL. Of course I love to receive a UPS shipment from Stampin’ Up! (who doesn’t love that?), but I often receive beautiful cards from customers, friends and fellow demonstrators. I love to open, study and admire each card – always makes me smile – but I’m not always good about acknowledging the receipt of cards to the senders. In 2016, I’ll be better about that. Promise.
This week I experienced two days of Happy Mail. One day I received this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit (what fun!), and I’m excited to share the other with you today.
From Australia with Love
Gifts from Australia are always a pleasant surprise. I often times receive beautiful gifts from my dear friend, Louise Sharp – no one can pull together a box of goodies (Tim Tams, Chocolate/Licorice Bullets and other “lollies”) quite like Lousie, and there’s always a lovely card to accompany the treats.
Late last year, I participated in a Blog Hop with Kylie Bertucci’s Crazy Crafters team – what a talented group! This week, I received three cards from three very talented members of the team. What a wonderful surprise!
Not only did my happy mail include cards from Kylie Bertucci, Angela Westland and Carolina Evans, but I also received a fun corsage that might make me an official member of the Crazy Crafters group. Here’s a quick look at each of these beautiful cards:
Kylie Bertucci created a beautiful watercolored background for this card and stamped sentiments from Hello, one of this year’s Sale-a-Bration stamp sets:
Carolina Evans offers a fresh perspective on the Balloon Builders stamp set by turning this shape into jelly beans. What fun! She used glimmer paper, but I’ll overlook that because of the overall originality of the project. 🙂
Angela Westland‘s square card is filled with beautiful textures and neutral tones. The band across the middle is Crumb Cake Satin Ribbon, and the entire card is aged with sponged ink, adding a very classic look to her card.
Aren’t I lucky? I really enjoyed receiving these cards and loved to share them with you today. Please let these talented stampers know how awesome their projects are.
Thanks for stopping by today!
