Hi, There!

Who doesn't like Happy Mail?  I love receiving a surprise card in my mailbox and better yet I love sending a surprise card to someone.  So with that in mind, I made two "happy mail" cards to use for later.  I love this image from #StampingBella.  Tiny Townie/Lacey has a letter image.  She is just so darn cute!!!

I had to make the first card following the sample color image on the packaging of the Stamping Bella rubber stamp set and the second card I made with some sample paper, a doily, and a stamped sentiment - all received as a thank you from #Verve Stamp company - nice touch and thank you!  Like I said - happy mail:)

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you to receive some happy mail - no bills - just happy stuff;)
Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
