Snail Mail for YOU!

Canada Post's strike continues! ARGH!! The strike has impacted me, as a greeting card maker. I have a stack of cards for various occasions to be mailed out but I cannot until the strike ends. The word is that the strike will (HOPEFULLY!) be resolved by the end of this week. In defiance of the strike, I used these stamps, from Papertrey Ink to create a snail mail for you card.
This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge is the layout below and that which I used for my card. I used a Martha Stewart design paper stack (I think it was Martha Stewart...) for the background paper which matched so well with my Stampin' Up! cardstock in a pail orange. I also had coordinating grosgrain ribbons in the green and orange. I added a little machine stitching and found a button in my button jar to tie a piece of bakers twine to and attach to the punched doily at the top. The doily punch is my new punch from Stampin' Up! I think I'm going to have a lot of fun using this punch!

This was a quick card to make an assemble. I just hope the strike ends soon so I can resume sending snail mail cards.
Until next time,



  1. cute, cute, cute!! thanks for the layout idea too!!

  2. Such a sweet card! Love the colors and your double ribbon. Thanks for playing Mojo Monday!

  3. This is just so adorable.. Very cute image.. Very lovely work as always.. hugs, Linda

  4. Great card and how appropriate! Your colour choice is just lovely too. I'm waiting for some new stamps to come in the mail and wouldn't you know, Canada Post goes on strike(*shaking fists in the air*).

  5. WOW ! Your card is beautiful. I love the colors you chose.

  6. Adorable card! So sorry to read that you're being subjected to a postal strike. I was just thinking not GETTING any mail (especially junk mail) for the past 3 days was kind of nice. Of course, I have been able to send stuff off, like bill payments. Hope to get some stamping done here soon.

  7. I love your card! I work for the US mail and would like to purchase the stamp of the mailbag... do you know what brand it is? I'm sorry the Canada Post is on strike.
    Thank you, Nancy (your neighbor in Michigan and married to a wonderful man from Windsor)
