Nothing's better than special delivery

Well, of course there's chocolate and champagne but getting a handmade card through the post feels really good too!  I made this card using some gorgeous SugarPea Designs goodies...





I this this set is great for guys - cute but not too cute!  I used the Happy Mail stamp set and the paper planes are from the Special Delivery set, cut with the die from the Special Delivery Accents die set.  I created the frame using two different sizes from my Nesties squares dies.  And do you like the blue and orange background?  I can't tell you about them yet, but consider it an unofficial sneak peek!!

For the background I used one of the borders from this month's freebie stamp set (you can get if you spend more than $60 in the store) called Build-A-Background - Basics.



That's it from me today.  Thank you for visiting and I'll be back later in the week so for now - have a great week!

Love this card and that is so true...special deliveries are awesome!!! Now if only the postman would stop dropping other people's cool stuff off at my house (same number, wrong street) and quit teasing me with their latest electronic purchases. Good thing I'm honest. ;)
Your card is WONDERFUL!!

So brilliant.... I'm loving the design with the fabbie air mail paper colours and stripes behind the cute image! Would I be showing my age if I say that I used to LOVE receiving air mail letters from my (then) boyfriend - who was a 2nd mate on a massive OBO carrier (tanker type ship)... He used to sail to places like Rio and Hong Kong... and write to me from all these wonderful places! Hmmm it definitely DOES show my ages as I was around 20 at the time! LOL!
