Happy Mail

I love mail and this week's DRS Designs challenge is all about mail - envelopes, mailboxes, letters, writing, mailmen, etc. 

I used the new Happy Mail Image fussy cutting the mailbox.  I also used the Script Font background stamp, some leaves from Happy Mail and some from Leafy Tree Branch.   Then I added the Sitting Here sentiment. 

Fun challenge - hope you will join us.



  1. This is such a nice card with all the text in the background and the snail mail theme. I love how you tucked the greenery behind the edge too! Who doesn't love getting a nice card in the mail :)

  2. This is fabulous Nancy, lovely muted colours and fabulous design.

  3. Love those leaves on the side of this beautiful mailbox! A gorgeous card once again.

  4. Absolutely terrific! Love your layout and wonderful background!

  6. I love yours too Nancy! After seeing the first two on the challenge I decided that something had to been done differently!!! Glad to see yours different too and really lovely with the script in the bg my friend! thanks as always for commenting on my blog!

  7. Love the leaves down the side and the sponging is fabulous!

  8. Oh I do love me some happy mail!! :) This is a wonderful design and I love your sponging along the edges to give it that Vintage flair!!

  9. I was wondering why this card struck my fancy so much. The color combination is perfect but what really set it apart is the background to the mail box and the sentiment. How perfectly you matched them. The mail box finishes the card excellently. Perfect.

    Hugs and Blessings

  10. Love this!! What a fab design! The leaves down the side are brilliant!

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
