going postal

...but you know... inna GOOD way, lol! we're still celebrating all things "snail mail" at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and we'd love to see your holiday cards that feature all things fab and postal-related! here's what i made this week:

postal patterned paper and journal card: pebbles; other paper: graphic 45, crate; diecut label shape thingie: making memories; presents: k and co; santa hat: jolee's via gina ta v much!; twine: doodlebug; tape: october afternoon; black glossy cardstock: ranger; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

ok, so, i had a totally different idea in mind but then i found the b+w paper with all the postal cancellations on it and my card instantly morphed into something else entirely. i kinda love it when that happens! :) i was inspired by retrosketch #177, though again, i started off with every intention of being very faithful, but in the end, kind of veered into loosey goosey land.* it's a great sketch, though, don't you think?

speaking of greatness, you NEED to head over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ to see stephanie's card right this second! no, seriously... go, now! (why are you still reading this?) (ok, shutting up.) :) :) :)

*for the record, no, i don't actually live in loosey goosey land, but i spend quite a bit of time there; i'm thinking of acquiring a pied a terre for weekends! :)


  1. This is awesome, love the pops of color!

  2. Squeeeeeeeeeeeee.. Pinned. pinned. and pinned again! (Ok... really only just once) but WOW this is fab-o. So eclectic and love the jaunty little santa hat sticker.


the *BEST* part of blogging is the comments, dontcha think? thanks for taking time to leave one! ~♥~
