Feathers

Native American Proverb

I’m part of a card swap….but it’s not your ordinary card swap. This one you give a name of someone who could use happy mail in their mailbox. The reasons are endless….sometimes it’s just good to get a smile in the mail. Then the hostess mixes up the names and gives you a name of someone to make a card for. This is for my June person…I’m a little late…but hopefully will go in the mail Monday. I had a lady who is Native American and likes her Native American Heritage, purple and butterflies. I went with her heritage and feathers. The colors of the feathers are showing up a little brighter than they are in real life…they are the colors of the papers…I promise (I have a matchy issue…they must match!!) There was no reason for the card except to get happy mail.

Sending Sunshine

Inside: Sending sunny thoughts to brighten your day!

I’m part of an Angel Swap where we receive a name and we send the recipient a card. This is for a lady that recently bought house and has been fixing it up. Just had surgery on her foot and is wearing a boot. And could just use some happy mail!

I had been wanting to use this cottage from Beccy’s Place and knew it would be perfect since she just bought a house. I printed out a second copy and cut out the two flowers bushes in front an the vine over the door so I could pop dot them and give them dimension. I used an older sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #199.
