These will actually GO IN THE MAIL!!!

Can you believe it!?!? I am actually going to put the following in an envelope and mail. them. out!! Holy stamp-ma-jig, batman!! Technically one of them is a swap and shouldn't really be considered as MAIL but it is going in the mail so I'm counting it.

This one's going to a certain someone (names omitted to protect the surprise factor, though it's probably obvious). I'm really happy with it.

All images by A Muse. There's quickie glue pen and DD Glitter on the door, wheels and cone. The ribbon is from Mike's. The punches are by Marvy. Don't you just love this ice cream truck?
Secondly today, I managed to come up with something I really liked for Elena's swap. Thanks to everyone for their kind comments on that chair/lamp card yesterday. I really appreciated them. I like that card but I think ultimately the patterned paper was a total no-go for me, color combo wise. This is way more my cup o' coffee (pun intended ... and if you want to be surprised Elena, don't scroll down)

All images by A Muse. I hope everyone likes it. Elena said we could do single layer cards and sometimes those can be the biggest struggle. Anyway, these are just very vanilla SU paper stamped with stazon timber brown. The ribbon is by American crafts. I colored in the dots of the mug and used quickie glue and DD glitter on the steam. Ya ta-ta ta! Here's a group shot of all the cuties. I really like how these turned out.

Also, stay tuned. I have two ATC swaps due to me by Saturday so hopefully I'll be able to post what everyone's sent this weekend. I'm really excited about those. This weekend is going to be busy. My sis and her family will be in town for Miss M's birthday (see previous post) and we're going to be rockin' it old school style (two year old) style. Word. Meet you at the bounce castle peeps!

I love both cards Sarah.They are too cute!! I think whoever is getting the Ice Cream Truck card will absolutely love it. The simplicity of the coffee cards is wonderful. I really enjoy simple designs, I think that's why I love A Muse so much!!

How I secretly wish that card was coming to MY house! LOL Really that card is adorable. I'm a huge fan of less is more and the card you made for Elena's swap is great.

I just got this card in the mail and let me tell you all it rocks.

I personally like A Muse "kicked up a notch" and so does Sarah but I like simple cards too. I really struggle with simple and I know that's strange but I love ribbon, brads, layering, glitter, the pens, eyelets, etc. I just can't help myself and it all takes time and money!!! I love receiving any kind of card and its super nice to get happy mail. Sarah, this one blew my flip flops off!!! I walked super fast from the mail box to rip this baby open!!! I was doing the happy dance near the mailbox in the dark no less. Thank you again and hi Liz!!!!
