Today is TWO PAPER DIVAS last New Stamp Release for 2014. Didn't we just start this year? WOW!! But, how exciting for Melissa Rodgers and Gayla O'Dell, owners of TWO PAPER DIVAS, They have both worked so hard to give all of us DIVAS on the Design Team and all of the Paper Crafters around the world the product that we have today to choose from their online store. WAY TO GO LADIES!!

This is additional new growth for TPD and what an exciting year ahead for all of us. WELCOME TO Elina Pereira, Irit Shalom, Jenny Stucky and Rita Wright. Let the creative juices flow!! But, while you are on the website, do not forget to also check out the stamps (new and older) that are awaiting to be in your collection.
The card today is designed with the "Sending Love" set of stamps from TWO PAPER DIVAS. Even with emails, texts and all the rest ...... I do not know about you ..... there is something special about going to the mail box. I say that because we have a cluster box but at my age I can remember when the mail went "plop" onto the floor through the wall slot or the slot in your front door. But living here in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, we are pretty rural but I can see my cluster box through the trees. In fact there is a funny connection that I have with Melissa Rodgers, one of the owners of TPD. When she and Tim first lived here in Pagosa, we shared the same cluster boxes. But, I still love the fact that I was your BEST and well ONLY employee in your "awesome" store here. Miss you my friend ..... but I love the creative fun we share now!!
Here are the particulars of this card:
Stamps: Mailbox, lips and the Sentiment - TWO PAPER DIVAS
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Rose Bud (for the lips)
Paper: Solar White 110 lb. from Ellen Hutson; Bubble Gum from Gina K. Designs and Melon Mambo
from Stampin'Up. The Designer heart paper is an old piece from a 6 x 6 pad which I no longer have the cover, just a few pieces left and they are in my Valentine Box. I used the Fiskar's crimper on it to give the card some more texture.Embellishments: Ribbon from Gina K. Designs and Mayarts; Mylar hearts in two shades of pink from
Impress Rubber Stamps; and the envelope 3-D sticker from Martha Stewart.
Punches: Martha Stewart Corner and Straight - All over punch set.
I also did a tiny paper piecing for the flag on the mailbox. Now, we do not have a flag ....... I just watch for Randy, our mailman, in his car!!!
Thanks for stopping by. I will be doing a few more postings before the end of the year!!
