You've Got Peanut Mail!

Here I am back again as promised with a card - it was so good to get back into my stamping room! I just HAD to do the Featured Stamper Challenge from Sunday on Split Coast where the featured stamper was my blogger and SCS friend PeanutBee (Denise). She has some wonderful stuff in her Gallery and I chose this card to CASE.


When you case someone's card you need to change some things - I changed the colors, kinds of flowers and used a stamp image instead of a large sentiment. I omitted the brads in the corner. I liked the design of the blocks of designer paper and the large panel sentiment. Instead of a sentiment - I used my new row of mailboxes stamp from the Mailbox Greetings set from PapertreyInk. This set is so neat - it comes with 3 different stamps to put under the boxes - a puddle that can be snow, flowers, and grass. And there are all kinds of sentiments with it too. I added some Petaloo foam flowers layered with brads on the corners. I colored my image with Prismacolor markers. The little 'you've got mail' sentiment stamp is from Lizzie Anne - the All Guy set.


Thanks for coming back to check out my 'first stamping in 4 days' card! Be sure to come by again tomorrow! I'm sure to have something else new loaded up!
