Thinking of You

Good day artful stampers! I am very pleased to hear that many of you are receiving your new release sets...and I want to send out a warm welcome to all of you who have just recently found Artful INKables. We are glad you are here and thank you for helping us grow.



I have a card to share with you today. I am slowly working my way through the new sets to come up with a few samples of my own, though I suppose that is why I have a DT, so dont forget to visit their blogs for continued inspiration. *wink* Anyway, I stamped the row of mailboxes from the new POST A NOTE set and colored them with copic markers. I wanted to make a vertical card so I cut only three mailboxes from the row and I also stamped the little bird (that comes with the set) on one of the posts. The mailboxes were then attached to a lovely piece of dp from the new Basic Grey Porcelain collection. The green wash on this paper lent itself so perfectly to create this scene, right down to an area for the ground to 'plant' the posts on. I used another piece of dp from the same collection for the triangle layering in the background of the card and the solid card stock is from SU!. To finish up I embellished with some prima flowers and fuzzy brads and stamped the sentiment.

Check back on Wednesday to see who won the Blog Hop Candy being given away on Dawn's blog!
