going postal


This week's Play Date Cafe is sponsored by WPlus9, so I thought no better reason then to break out my new Spring Post set.  My day has been going pretty well, but it got even better when I received the SRM stickers I won last week from Etsy Inspired!  Woo hoo.  So I went digging through this week's shop, Fresh Metal and found these earrings.  Look, it's the same color challenge as PDC!  

And since I was on a postal theme I thought I'd post this second card I made for this week's Off the Wall Craftiness, I tried to CASE Nichole's card but it didn't quite work out the way I thought... but since I've used WPlus9's postmarked on here I thought I should post it.  




Materials: 1st card: WPlus9 Spring Post, PTI Postmarks, Versafine black ink, paper from my stash, Fiskars scallop rotary cutter, white card stock

2nd card: PTI Postmarks, WPlus Postmarked, PTI postage die, Yellow card stock scrap, Stampin Up Kiwi Bliss card stock, Stampin Up red riding hood card stock, white card stock, Versafine black ink

Wow, Erin, these are gorgeous! I'm not sure I could handle this week's PDCC colours but you rocked 'em. I think these new postal sets are going to serve you well... much like On My Couch. ;)
