"Waiting for Mail"

Monday, November 22,2010

This is the time of the year when we all keep pretty close watch on our mail boxes. Why, because we get those cards from people that we only hear from at this time of the year. They update us on the history of that year in thier life.

The missive is in the form of a long letter stuffed in a card. They are always welcome, but some time very sad, because we have not kept in contact more often.

My image today, is of my lonely mail box.

"Waiting for Mail"

The image is from "Raisinboat" stamp. it is from a set called "Joyous Garden, the same set I used for my last card. Although the color on the image and sentiment mats is a royal blue it shows in the picture a black. I colored the image with Copic markers. The background mat for the sentiment was punched with a new Martha Stewart "Punch all Over" punch that I purchased yesterday. I did a little inking around the edges of the image and the sentiment with ink from a Hybride Palette "Cote d'Azure" blue. I applied the ink with a sponge. The sentiment stamp is from "Hero Arts" it is called "Time to Enjoy" (F1843). The bow was matched to the ink color that I edged the image with.

I added some stickles to give the card some bling.

Simple card, but I like the finished card.

Your comments or questions are always welcome.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Awesome. I'll take time to look around more as I just found your blog by seeing your post on the yahoo copic forum. I'm new to it and to anything to do with Copic.
    Is this what I should buy?
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Happy Thanksgiving Bob, this is a lovely card. I do love those punches. I was in Michaels yesterday and they have so many to choose from. I do plan to get a couple of them. With coupons of course.
