Have you ever made a card for your letter-carrier (“mailman”)? I have made at least three cards for mine because she is a very kind person and she has saved me a number of times. I make and mail about 800 cards each year and sometimes I guess what the postage would be, rather than take a trip to the post office. My letter carrier graciously pays the difference in the postage I am missing and mails my cards out on time, rather than cancelling the postage and returning them to me. The next day, she places an envelope in my mailbox with a receipt and a request for me to drop in the change to pay her back. How nice is that!?
To demonstrate my gratitude, I make her little cards that fit inside the Postage Due envelope. When I was on an owl card kick, I made this one for her using Pearl Ex powders and stamps from CTMH and Inkadinkado.
I love the jewel stamps and wanted to match that effect by using shimmery Pearl Ex powders over my Versamark stamped images. Now that I look at this card, I realize I should have added some crystals to the owls eyes and to a few other places. Oh well. I am definitely my Grandma B.’s grand-daughter, pointing out my mistakes. 😉
Thanks for reading my owl card blog post, whooooooooo-ever you are!
