WOJ "Happy Mail" Sneak Peek.......

Good morning!! I hope everyone is having a great start to their new Year!! Mine has been so busy already!! Yesterday we took down the Christmas decorations and I made a couple tiny holes in the wall ~ well hubby was not having it so he decided to patch them. Well that turned into a job ~ we repainted 3 rooms!! LOL When it comes to doing a job he is always "too" thourough!! haha

Anyways here is a card featuring another one of Whiff of Joy's new stamp collection "Happy Mail". It is illustrated by Alison Acton and will be available on January 9th. I decided to go without embellishments to make the image stand out. Besides I added so many layers with details that I didn't want to make it to busy! I just love the envelope that the pigeon is carrying because you get some fab sentiments to add in it! (I forgot about them when I made the card!!haha) Are you sick of my Kraft paper yet? I hope not as I am making quite a few with them! I got a bunch for Christmas and I think it just goes good with Valentines!

Paper ~ My Mind's Eye
Inks ~ Distress inks (Did you see the new colors? I am hoping Hubby will get them for me for my birthday!) Twinkling h20's
Accessories ~ lace ~ Flower and Craft Warehouse, Sentiment ~ Melissa Frances

Well I am off to do the big grocery shopping!! So fun! haha I waited til my oldest 2 went back to school today as I hate taking all 3! I end up spending twice as much and it takes 3 times longer!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are all having a wonderful day!!
