Description: The article talks about the smione card that author received from people who like her. She shows those different and colorful cards which people sent to her PO box. People use many types of materials to make cards which can show their attitudes towards the author.
Welcome to the March 2018 happy mail hall. For those that have not watched these articles,we’ve been doing this over two years. Now to two and a half years. These are cards that you have made and sent into my PO box. At the end of every month or beginning of the next,I will show you some cards in the PO box. I wan to show off all of the cards. Now we need to do a little bit of housekeeping before we start.
First of all, there are some themes. I list them in the description as well as on my blog. I have the RAK / happy mail haul category. On my blog I have them all listed. I also have a playlist in YouTube. I’m not too strict with category which we’ll get into because there are some cards for previous months but they didn’t show up until March.
I will set them aside. Speaking of setting them aside,I am more than fine with people sending extras like upcoming. If people want to bundle everything together and send for April May and June,I’m fine with that. This is my little container where I keep the extra cards for the next couple of months.. If you can label them it helps.
I see a lot of people put them in oil clear little envelope and throw a sticky note on the envelope. It’s fine. They’ll say the date is April May June etc. It saves me some time. Please don’t send more than two cards per theme or per month like some of these packages. There are six cards in them. I can handle that lately some people have been sending in huge packages like boxes of cards and they all been stuffed full. I have nowhere to put them.
This little container is all I’ve got for storage for the upcoming up in Mill Hall Plus. I have been a little bit overwhelmed recently with great big packages. I have nowhere to put them. That is also something I get asked a lot. I have addressed this a lot. What do I do with the cards? Someone might put up on display. I don’t have any space. I can’t hang things on the walls here because I’m in a rental. So I rotate them.
I will have an little unit where I can hang all the cards and rotate them out. In that way people can get a better look at them. I’ve had many people who ask about me some questions. I don’t have the space. I do this because I love it. I love showing what you make. I don’t have space so if people can stick to those little parameters,this will go a lot smoother and I won’t be extremely overall stressed as I have been last few months with this. It’s been a lot.
Let’s get into the fabulous cards. I’ve got this one from Marianne in Nashville. This was another one. But he didn’t show up until later. This is paint. It is a stripe of paint. I like that that’s fun. There is a little pearls. I agree with that. Then I’ve got this one from Sheryl in the US. This is one of my favorite. I very like how you did it in black and white and the sentiment in color. I like that. There’s shimmer added to the main image. It is very fun. This one was for the February theme which was kindness. I will show these two.
That’s another reason why and save this one. I love it even the wording is simple. It’s so nice. Many of you are decorating the envelopes. I love it. It makes it more fun when I come to pick up the mail. I will slip that one. I got this one from Sherry in Wisconsin. This is gorgeous like lighthouse or the same thing. It stamped on the envelope and the color is the one I like. and this has got like some shimmer to it as well. It’s that one.
I’ve got a couple of these from Gloria.She is also in the US. These are cute little bees or these are buttons. It’s fun little embellishment. There is a cute little puppy dog card. I will dot it and then I have this one from Jane who is also in the US. It is so cute to do color backgrounds and then to leave the images uncolored. They will pop against the color. I like that. They are so cute.
I’ve got this one from Sabrina in France. It was patterned paper and very shimmery. That shimmer looks like bringing the pattern paper onto the inside of the card. I like that. They are very fun. Then I’ve got this one from Brenda in the US. There is a side effect of Awesome. It looks like a colorful cloudy background. Dot it. This one is from Hailey in Australia. I love the bright colors. It is so bright and fun. I love it. That’s very cute.
This showed up from Stephanie in Germany. I like your postage stamps. They’re so cute. Why do not we get coupons and do the same thing to the envelope? There’s a coffee theme. Thank you for the shape of sprinkles. I always want more of these. I love these Doodlebug. These are the breakfast buddies ones with a little bacon and little waffles and the pop.
Gifts are never necessary. I’ve said that many times. But thank you I appreciate it. It’s very cute. I love this coffee card you did. I have this from Emma. I don’t think I’ve used it yet but I love how you added. They seems like glossy accents to all of these coffee cups. They’re all shiny. It’s adorable. I love little cards like this. I don’t know. It was so cute. There’s another one. This one from Asia in Finland. His is a cute one too. There is a little koala bear on it. It is very adorable.
We’ve got a couple cards from hope. Those are familiar with her crochet. They’re not crochet. They are cross stitch cards. They are very pretty. She’s like a metallic thread on some of these. These are all cross stitch on fabric. There have been many types of that over the last couple years.
I hope she doesn’t have a youtube channel. She sends in cards. She gets her patterns from different magazines. She does it on fabric and then she backs it with cardstock and turns it into a card. I’m always very impressed because I know how time-consuming these are. I like especially this one. This is one more cup. It is fabulous.
Then I’ve got this one from Laurie in Ottawa. She’s card are very bright. I love bright colors on black. I like this stamp set. I don’t know what stamp set this one is from. but it’s very fun for me. I don’t know if this comes with that set or not. You’re colored in many colors which make it such a great card. There’s that one. It is like knocking everything over.
At last but certainly not least. This is another card. She had made it for challenging the fun little critters. It is very cute. I like the white heat emboss for the background. There’s a matching envelope. It’s got the ball continually bouncing in that little puppy dog. He’s so cute. I don’t know what set this is from but it’s so adorable. It is so adorable.
Thank you all so much. Sorry for the very long housekeeping introduction. If you have questions about any of the stamp sets or techniques or anything, you can leave your comments on my on my blog so those who made these will be able to read them and they can respond with what they did or what stamps they used. It’s a nice way for them to hear what you think. Leave some nice comments for all of them in a description box. I think that will be very very nice.
I like that you can leave some appreciation. It’s can be a little nerve-wracking. I know some people have said they are very nervous about sending in cards. Don’t fee and don’t be nervous at all. We all have to start somewhere. I shared them on my Instagram at the beginning of March. At the beginning of March I found one of the first cards I ever posted online. I found it and I posted it on my Instagram. We all have to start somewhere. Thank you all so much for taking the time to send these in the letters and the notes and everything you did for me.
