Good Mail Day

As promised, here's my second Christmas in July card. It's also my second attempt at coloring my image with Distress Inks. I have to say, it is getting easier ... and speaking of images, isn't this festive holiday mailbox stamp wonderful? I just love the details, especially the little cardinal perched on top. You'll find it here in Serendipity Stamps online store.

Don't forget that now through July 19th you will get between 10% and 20 % off stamps in the Winter and Christmas category. If you purchase between $10 and $20 you will receive a 10% discount at checkout and if you purchase over $20, you'll save 20%. It's a great opportunity to pick up those holiday stamps!

I can't remember when I've looked forward to a weekend this much. It has been one crazy week at work. Is it a full moon or something? I'm really happy because I am also planning to take Monday off. My daughter and I are going shopping...for baby things! She is expecting my second grandbaby in February!! We are over the moon with excitement and just have to do a little shopping to celebrate.

Hope your weekend is wonderful too!

It's all about the details:

Patterned Paper: Basic Grey, Wassail
