Happy Mail!

As a college student and camp counselor, I lived for the days when I got happy mail. (note the guilt of not sending out more than I do now). In my family, happy mail was always a great thing. My mom and sister are great at recognizing every holiday. Me, I made cards and post them, but forget to send them!

Enough guilt. What's a demonstrator to do when she wakes up early on a crop day after creating the night before (thanks to a late season snow day). Does she do her laundry? Make a great breakfast? Exercise? Nope. Those would all wake up the house. The answer: BLOG!

Last night I created my hostess gift for today...well, part of it is already made, but I wanted something to put them in. TADAHHHH!

Cute, huh? I bought these mailboxes at the Target Dollar Spot, a place I never can resist. Ever. I meant to create valentine's gifts, but well, I decided to use them now.

The Sale-o-bration Designer series paper was calling my name. The ribbon bundle and the coordinating stamp set made this project easy. Plus, I got to use punches. A dream project for me really!

Stamps: Polka Dot Punches
Paper: Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Bashful Blue
Ink: Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Sale-a-bration Ribbon Bundle, 1/4 Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, paper snips, sticky strip, 3/4 circle punch, 5 petal flower punch, Boho Blossoms Punch

I love how the Sale-o-bration products coordinate. And, they were free! (with three $50 orders) Shhhh. Don't tell Bubba that part!

Happy Stamping!
