My first card is ready to go! Fortunately, I only have to pop my head out the front door to stick it on the mailbox! We had sleet, freezing rain and snow in the past 12 hours. I'm afraid to ask what we're expecting tomorrow!

Stay warm, everyone,

Thank you to my not so secret big sis!! I love envelopes...so the gatefold with the envelope is a fun idea for a new fold! Thanks for sharing with me!

Today I received a beautiful Tri-fold Screen card from my secret sis! I don't think I have ever made one of these before, but I am inspired by the one you sent me! Thanks so much! Have a great weekend and stay warm!

I received a cute and extremely clever card yesterday from my secret sister! Not only does it fit into a standard small envelope the sentiment and note slide in and out of the card! The image she used is absolutely adorable!

There are so many fun folds in the SCS tutorials...that's a good place to start if you want some "out of the box" help...

and remember, two cards received by the 15th of March. So...hopefully by now, everyone has gotten or is about to receive card #1....

Time to go cheer her up...such is the life of a mom!

HAPPY MAIL!!!!! (Not sure if it's for this group or the other one so I'm posting in both - LOL!!)

My Secret Sis has PERFECT timing! The last week of the month is always a bear for me at work trying to get reports completed and databases updated and sent....and now my cold is coming back and feeling icky to boot....and not sleeping great these days...so I've been in a bit of a funk. But oh, did my Secret Sis come to my rescue! Not only did she send me just the cutest card (love that little bunny in the basket image - so darling!) and nice note...but she packed that card full of images, some ribbon, and paper for me to play with too! Since last night was church I didn't have time to go through all the images you sent - but I quickly glanced and can't wait to sit down tonight and get my creative juices going! Thank you for thinking of me and sharing with me...and being such a bright spot in my week!

Default Canada Post at its best

I would like to post my apologies to my SS. I did everything right, I packaged up your card, I went to the post office, we weighed the card we checked the dimensions, I paid the postage and we mailed the card that was a week ago. Today I open my post box to find the card I sent last week has been returned for insufficient postage.

SS I am so sorry, you will be getting two months worth of cards around the same time.

Sorry I haven't been chatty. I'm on day 8 of a stomach bug that's going around. I'm in PA and my sister in VA just called, she had it too. I'll be back when I'm better.

Hey, now I thought stuff like that only happened on this side of the border! LOL!!! Oh Dea, I know it's frustrating but I had to chuckle a bit because it sounds like something that happens to me.

I received a lovely card today in the mail today, thank you so much to my SS. The card is lovely it has an origami fold on the front, I will post a picture this weekend of it. Thank you again SS. No I don't know who it is, only that she lives in the states and can disguise her address very well.

Hey Dea, our mail gets so bad sometimes that there was one time our neighbor got our mail, we got the mail of the house in front of us, and they got our neighbors mail. After the mail goes, we just all walk outside and exchange mail. LOL!!! One time another neighbor/friend saw me outside and said "Oh, I got one of your catalogs but I was looking through it so I haven't brought it over yet" LOL!!!!!

My Sister sent the most fabulous card that arrived yesterday! I have never seen such a clever folded card and can't wait to copy the folds and make one for my Sister. It uses beautiful papers on a black background and is really stunning.

Thank you so much Sis xx

My first card arrived today and it's beautiful! It had to make a very long trip to get to me. THANKS, SS! I'll try to get a photo tomorrow.

My second card will be postal tomorrow. I had it all put together and then one of my cats decided to take it apart, so I had to start over again.

Have a great Tuesday,

I received my first card today. It is a really cute step card. Love the image and sentiment! Since my birthday is in a week, I think I'll pick "29".

My secret sister is very clever! She sent me a leprechaun card using the top note die - so very cute! She also sent a beautiful spring card using the kissing technique. Your cards are so much fun to receive! Thank you! Thank you!
