Happy Mail Thank You!

Good Morning!  A bit chilly here....-3 degrees, feels like -24.....yikes!  It's going to warm up to 13, so that will be great!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at Papertrey Ink, Saturday Happy Mail.  To make a thank you card for the PTI's Warehouse Crew AND mail it!  I always loooooooooove getting orders fro PTI, first because, it's new stamping supplies, secondly they wrap each order like a special little gift, almost makes it easier on the wallet--they know what they're doing!  lol

I made a little Shaker Happy Mail Thank You card.  I started with the Phrase Play #5 die as my shaker base, Hexagons Cover Plate die, Happy Hexagons, Simple Sunflowers and Swoosh stamp sets....all by Papertrey Ink.  I got a great deal on the Designer Paper at Michael's one day.  Original price 19.99 for a 12x12 pad on sale for 5.99....I got 2 different ones.  This is  Tea Party by Craft Smith.  Filled with beautiful colors and fabulous flowers AND some great metallic papers too, like this dotted one.  Once I found the paper I knew I had to drag my Minc out and add some Gold Foil accents, a match made in heaven! I Foiled the 'happy' and some hexagon die cuts, they really POP!

MFT Traditional Stitch Tag die, large Gold Sequins, Ribbon and Jute Twine for accents.  Corner Rounder and EK Success Tag Punch for small sentiments.

Whenever I make a Shaker card I ALWAYS use this technique Heather shares with us in this video, makes life super easy!  Shaker Card Video.

What a nice thing to do, have us all thank the PTI Warehouse Crew for all of their hard work!  I love Companies who know they can't do it all by themselves!  YAY to you all!

Thanks so much for popping by! 

Hope you get some Happy Mail this week!  (Nancy I owe you one!)
