A card for my postman

Well, I do believe this is my final Xmas card for the year and this one is for my mailman. He is a real champ trudging up to my porch on a regular basis to bring me all of my packages so I try to get him a little something every year to show my thanks.

This is Lulus ornaments from Stamping Bella and I apologize, I just got the stamp a few weeks ago but I don't see it in stock at the moment.

Papers are last years xmas ones by MME. I have stamped the image with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored them with copics then applied glossy accents to give them some shine. I have also added some small dots of glitter around the bows cause you know a card ain't a card without some glittah!  Unfortunately I am not thrilled with the brown ink around the edges but once it is there it's not coming off so we will just say it is "vintage inspired". Ok, I hope all of my blogging friends have a wonderful holiday and a  fabulous New Year! Big cyber hugs!

Wishing you the Merriest of Christmas's and a very Happy New Year.
Here's to another year of friendship.
Big hugs to you my sweet (if slightly crazy ha!) friend.

Merry Christmas Amanda! I hope Santa brought you some great goodies!

I love your Christmas balls. Sorry. I had to say that. ;-D

Great patterns and they're beautifully colored. The Glossy Accents gives 'em shine and dimension and the dottie patterns around them make 'em pop even more.

I like the edging and think it really does add to the vintage feel. So there. :D

Amanda, your are such a sweetheart. I never even thought to give my postlady a little something. There are days when the weather is just nasty or for that matter hotter than H***, and I always tell Jerry that that is a job I would never want but that I am so thankful that someone does it, yet I didn't even think to give her a card. So my friend Merry Christams! Sorry I am late with this, but Jerry and I spent Christmas eve day after 1pm when I got off work, Christmas shopping. It was not an easy year for us, and we had to wait for that last minute Christmas bonus to use for our shopping. Try not to do that, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. lol...Anyway, I LOVE this card! I think it is just beautiful and I am sure that your mailman loved it as well. I hope that you and Joe and the babies are all having a wonderful holiday season. Hugs, Lisa
