Mailman's Mail

Thank you to Sandy Allnock for providing a drawing of that cute dog by the mailbox.  I printed it out on Whisper White cardstock and then colored it with pencils.  I used Odorless Mineral Spirits to smooth it out.  I love that stuff.  It makes your picture look like you've water colored it.  I made it into a Christmas card with a verse on the inside.  I always add a personal note and some money each year.   I used Coastal Cabana and ran it through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot embossing folder.  I cut out the picture with the Labels Collection Framelits and Melon Mambo cardstock.  I also colored the eagle holding a letter that she provided,  but will save that one for next year. 


  1. You're back! I love seeing your cards. You colored this one beautifully. Your mailman will love it!

  2. What a sweet card! I love the shape you used to cut out and frame your image and of course the dog is darling.

    Best crafty wishes!

    1. Thank you Amber. I thought that drawing was so appropriate since my dog and I walk out to the mailbox every day.
