Happy Mail CR84FN13

Happy Friday! I hope your week has been a good one. We are finally out of the deep freeze here (it got down to -18 on Tuesday) but it is still cold with more snow on the way. I hope the weather is better where you are. My week was not one of my best. My treadmill broke on Tuesday. I had a migraine so bad on Wednesday I had to go to bed in the middle of the day for awhile and today Sophie killed another squirrel and brought it in the house again! I am hoping the weekend will be better.
I have wanted to participate in Mona Pendelton's CR84FN color challenges for awhile but have not had a chance to until now. With everything that happened this week thankfully I was still able to get it done. I am cutting this close to the wire for entering since it ends in a few hours but I made it though. These were the colors. Some of my favorite's.

This is what I came up with

Inside you will find these

I started with Lauren Meader's Happy Mail SVG template that I cut out of PTI Pure Poppy Cardstock. I made the Argyle Heart paper using the Argyle Amazement digi images. The hearts were die cut from the Nestabilitie Heart dies using Pure Poppy and Tempting Turquoise Cardstock. The red hearts are covered in red German Glass Glitter. The Love stamp is from PTI's Border's And Corners Hearts Set and stamped on white cardstock using Dark Chocolate ink. Then I cut them into little banners and hot glued them on. Red baby pom pom trim finishes it off.
The lunch box notes fit perfectly inside the mailbox. I started with a Pure Poppy Base then added some more of the argyle heart paper I made to the bottoms. I embossed the tops with tiny dots. After that I cut some doily Limitless Layer's using Kraft cardstock then I added a Tempting Turquoise circle and another white circle which I stamped with one of the circular images from The Simple Valentine set. I finished them off with a heart stamp from the same set To finish them off I added a piece of white cardstock to the insides to write a little note on.
Here is a photo of the whole set.

I think this would make a great Valentine's gift for a little girl. I will be putting it up for sale in my Etsy shop soon.
That's it for now. I will be back soon with more to share. Until then I hope you have a great weekend and as always thanks for stopping by.

This is perfect! Just perfect! Great colors and the little notes are adorable!

I hate to hear about the migraine because I get 1-2 a month myself and know how awful they can be. I had a migraine yesterday that was killer. I even took something for it right away but it still took all day and lots of laying in bed to feel better. When I finally could get up and function (slowly) I was starving from not being able to eat all day. Yikes about the squirrel!

Lindsay said...

This is so fantastci Terri! Wow! I love the mailbox and coordinating letters! Great work!

For a woman with the week you had, I cannot believe what a great project you created here with those color and all the 3-D elements. You're my 3-D idol! I just have to say, yuck and double yuck on both the migraine and the dead squirrel in the house, I get the migraines too but I'm thankful our dog hasn't managed to catch a squirrel yet! Yours must be way more agile!!!
