Here is what I made for a project today....the funny thing is, I had a card all made for this hop, and then I saw this cut on the Artiste cartridge, and I had to try it.lol



I picked up a paper pak of 12x12 papers from K&Co.   The papers are gorgeous.  The pad is called Sweet Nectar.


The mail box was cut from the Artiste cartridge at 3 Inches and scored and glued together.  I used Bazzil paper to make the flag and border, and embellished with yellow string beads and lace.  On the top I added some mulberry roses. and stamped "A warm hello" on the flag.

The flowers were all cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge with the exception of the blue rose which I used a punch.. retro flower lg. and layered it and rolled it and used the Gilmore flower maker tools to shape it and glue gun to hold together.  I used Tim Holtz distress pads to ink edges of the flowers with Pickled Raspberries ink.


On the mailbox door, along with the assorted flowers, there is a mini envelope I made and inked, laying under the flowers, not sure if you can see it.  I really had fun making this, now what to do with it.lol


Here is the blog candy picture below....Yummy huh?? Well you will want to visit and comment on each blog as well as become a follower of each to be eligible to win!!! Easy peasey :)
