I have my own private battle with the post office. I have send ( and received ) such crazy stuff that now the postal workers all know me. If I try to mail an envelope, they instinctively pinch it here and there to find the pop top tab, the eyelet, the penny to make something roll down a tab ... and then they charge me for it.
So one layer cards really make me happy. I can stick 'em in MY mailbox with a stamp and know they will get where I want them to go without bouncing back like a bad penny .... for another nickel and dime.
I really enjoy doing sketch cards --- plus I had to use a bit more of that purple and green paper I love. This is my first French card - Amanda is studying French so I got some special stamps to use for her.
This card is for a dear friend who has always dreamed of seeing the ocean and running her toes in the sand. The teapot had such a hand made feel to it that I thought it really worked with hand colored paper. I rubbed my distress pads on a waterproof mat, spritzed them with water and pearl ex and pressed a watercolor paper into them. Fun effect.
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
