Hand penned Thanks. ....

Its come to my attention that some of the local Post Offices are not going to be delivering everyday- due to cut the financial drop they are dealing with.. I am aware of everyone going ELECTRONIC.. and silly me thought for a moment that maybe with their competitive edge with the package mail- they could compete with Brown, Yellow and the other - I guess I was wrong!

 This really is heartbreaking - since I really try my best to keep in the mailing system. I mail cards.. from Thank you to Birthdays, silly holidays in between - not only for my love of cardmaking - but the excitement I get when the recipients acknowledges they have received it! 

 Sure, I am guilty of my electronic payments and when I shop online I select the USPS when I can.. so I am doing my part...  I cannot save the post office myself but I figure every little bit matters.  

I elected to make a 10 card bundle of these Give Thanks  in fall colors not only for my postmaster but to mail out to a few other people.  I used the Handpenned Sentiments in Espresso, on White. I have been waiting to use those Gently Falling two step stamps - in which I LOVE!  I used the Pastels in More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie.   The CS base is Expresso with Cajun Craze layered before the Lattice Embossing Folder in More Mustard.  I cut out the leaves, used dimensions. Added an Espresso button with a sliver of Cajun craze laced thru it.

I stamped some leaves on the envelope in More Mustard and Cajun Craze - using the Rock n  Roll technique! How fun!!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hug the ones you love!

Have a great day!
