More Happy Mail

DSCF4497

Before I show you some MORE happy mail I got, I have one more sort-of patriotic-themed card I made.  This was a hostess thank-you card, and I know my hostess likes anything country and primitive, and she just ordered Darling Dots from her recent party, so here's what I came up with:

The card base is Bordering Blue with Real Red and Night of Navy accents; I also used Sanded on both the card and the panel.  Everything is shaded with Sahara Sand, and I also "antiqued" the ribbon with a SS marker.  The sentiment is SU's new Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Now, for my happy mail:

From Juanita; this has an image stamped on a clear sheet, then cut out with the Top Note diecut--look at those darling crocheted flowers!  So sweet!

DSCF4542 And this little cutie from my once-downline Anne; it opens to a little pocket!!

 

 

 

And the day before, she sent me this sweet card:

I just love that ribbon treatment!

I won't be posting for a day or so as we'll be quite busy with holiday stuff!  In fact, I'm making homemade ice cream right now!!!  YUM!  (I took all the calories out, too!)  Have a fun, safe, happy July 4th in whatever country you reside!

I get great cards in the mail too, but I guess I'm too lazy to post them! :( One of these days, maybe I'll surprise everyone with a huge post of all my happy mail!

CUTE card! I love the primitive-feel to it!
