Haggard Mailman

     It's Friday, the weekend is about to start, and we have a new challenge up over at QKR Stampede.  Can it get any better than that?  :-D  Our theme this week is "3's a Crowd" so use 3 of something on your card.

   

     My image is digi 15208, Holiday Mail, and the first sentiment (top left) is digi 21404, All You Need.  The second silly sentiment is mine, generated with a computer font and I added it because it just seemed to work.

     Despite the non-traditional colors, this is one of my Christmas cards for a wonderful fellow crafter.  I colored the image with ProMarkers, then die cut it with a die from a Spellbinders.  I used a die set from QuicKutz to cut the rosette shapes and the sentiments.  I used dies in 3 different sizes for the rosettes, and 3 different colors of CS.  I made three rosette shapes, layering them under and over the image piece corners.  Finally, I added 3 sets of 3 buttons as the embellishments.  I think I more than covered the "3's a crowd" aspect; don't you agree?

     Challenges:
Artistic Inspirations
Card Mania
Crafty Cardmakers
I {heart} ProMarkers

     I hope your weekend plans include some time just for you and some additional time for creativity.    While you're at it, come play with us at QKR Stampede.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

You covered the "three's" really well, Connie. I think that image is really fun. We card makers really work the postal workers, don't we? HA
Have a good weekend. I like your header

How cute (and clever) Miss Connie! Congratulations on Through the Craft Room Door, Connie - that is fabulous! How long have you subscribed to it? I do feel for our letter carrier during the holidays - we are so rural and it takes them forever at that time of year. Hope you are doing well, and enjoying your new home.hugs, de
