The sentiment on the envelope has my name on it!!! Fabulous card.

cm said...

A fabulous card & envie ensemble, Amy! And how fabulous is that stamp set! I, too, am guilty of not sending enough cards, but I DO send to my niece and nephew every month (still *celebrating* their "Happy Month" Days...the 3rd for my niece and 12th for my nephew). I sent my niece's early; a little 'something' special for her first day of Grade 1 on Sept. 1st!

I think snail mail is the only way to go. People have lost touch of one another. The kindness that a cures when someone opens there mailbox and finds more then just junk or bills can alter their whole week! I sent out four cards yesterday

Carlypool said...

Carlypool said...

Totatally loved them on Facebook!

I sent out a card today, as a matter of fact! It was to my daughter's old pre-school teacher who I just found out retired! She always spent extra time to help my daughter ease into the whole pre-school thing and I wanted to let her know how much we appreciated her.

Karenladd said...

I can't believe how adorable this Snail Mail stamp set is. Those sentiments are sure to make any recipient smile before they even open the envelope. Shaker cards are always fun and this one is so cute with those sequins and red white and blue patterned papers.

Already mailed out several cards this week to an elderly aunt in a nursing home, to a fellow crafter in another state, and to my late father in law's wife who is 90 years old and loves getting happy mail!

This is such a great set to encourage us to spread our happy mail. Love how you used it to create your card and envelope.

Mary-Anne V said...

I already sent one happy mail this week and will send out another to my BIL tomorrow.

Chris said...

3 cards mailed yesterday and 2 more planned for today. Two of them have been weighing on my heart to mail and with getting my last out the door for college I've been dragging my feet. Thanks for the push - I needed that! :)

Audrey Pettit said...

So, so cute, my friend! Love your shaker, and love that fun set! The airmail paper you used is so perfect here, too. And your embellished envelope is just the icing on the cake! Seriously love all those sentiments. <3

When I make cards, they are usually ones needing to be sent, so yes, I mail mine about 98% of the time. One Sheet Wonder sets are about the only ones that go in queue for last minute cards.
