happy mail!

this week's challenge at shopping our stash is called "happy mail" and can be interpreted in multiple ways: envelopes, writing letters, etc... or mail-related or letter-writing supplies/ papers/ stamps. or possibly a typewriter, an alphabet joke and some texty/lined papers??!

patterned papers: october afternoon, american crafts, basic grey, sei, teresa collins; foam thickers in 2 styles: american crafts; glossy white cardstock: the paper cut; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape

here's a shocking true confession for ya: i looooooove the look of tall cards. every time i make a tall card, i think to myself, "i love tall cards! i should make more tall cards! why don't i make tall cards more often?" and then i have to photograph them and it all comes back reallllllllllllllllly quickly. so yeah. please to consider this both my first tall card IN a while, and my last tall card FOR a while. kthx.

but seriously, i do think it came out well; and additionally i got to use up loads of older stash, which is the ENTIRE POINT of SOS, actually! speaking of which... i happen to know there's load more inspiration awaiting you from my DT darlings, so off you go to check it out! ♥
