New Mailman Welcome - Stampin' Up! Snail Dies

   Our mail delivery has always been a bit haphazard since we've lived in this house.  It seemed that there were maybe 2 different routes going through the neighborhood as you would see a truck and then go check the mailbox and there would be nothing and then 4 hours later a different truck would come through and then our mail would be delivered.  And a lot of different mail carriers as well.  Some you would recognize but each day it seemed to be a different person with no rhyme or reason.  The other day we got a little postcard in our box stating that we were getting a new carrier and his name is John.  Huh!  Well if John took the time to put these cards in all the mailboxes introducing himself I figure the least he deserved was a warm welcome to our neighborhood route with a card!


  The little envelope die and the USPS colors of Real Red, Night of Navy and Whisper White are a great combo for a little mail themed card.  I used a piece of Well Suited DSP for the background pattern, added a welcome sentiment in Night of Navy and used up some retired candy dots for some masculine embellishment.

  I wanted to stamp something on the background and I thought at first maybe the envelopes from either Snailed It or Kangaroo & Company but the little hearts just didn't seem right; we don't know John yet so hearts seem a little over the top lol!  Maybe once I know he's reliable and won't shove a too large package in my mailbox he'll get some hearts!  So no other stamping.

  Anyway don't forget about your mail carriers; they're the ones taking all those gorgeous handstamped cards and getting them to loved ones.  Maybe they deserve a card too!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
