4:00am Post Office Run....and a card


I just got back from the post office. I had a VIP package to mail and it needed to go out ASAP! (I'm such a procrastinator!! *Hi, I'm Jennifer and I like the adrenaline rush of waiting until the last minute because this month isn't stressful enough!*) Luckily, the line was short ;) I could hear people working in the back though. I have a huge crush on the APC - Automated Postal Center. IT ROCKS!!!! It took me all of 5 minutes to park, mail the package and get back in my car. Sweeeeet! Yesterday was the busiest mailing day of the month and I feel like I just cheated all those people who had to wait in line.
Here's another card I made for the new Whipper Snapper release. I followed this tutorial on SCS - very easy and very fun! I used my new Polar White Flower Soft - love it! It really looks like fluffy snow. The snowman and the snowballs are cut out and raised on dimensionals. I figured the front was busy enough so I added the message on the inside.
Stamps: Whipper Snapper - Gardening Snowman and Think Snow
Paper: SU! Night of Navy, white, light blue from Archivers
Accessories: Martha Stewart icicle punch, MS snowflake punch, brad, clear embossing powder, Flower Soft, Navy grosgrain ribbon, Stickles, Copics.

Please tell me those icicles on the bottom are a die and not free hand!!!! As always, just lovely! So glad you took the plunge into designing!

The APC rocks! We went to the post office today and the line was almost to the door, but no one was at the APC - hello people. Don't be scared of it. Love that machine! Your card is freakin' adorable! What a great idea to make a little snowglobe. Love the punches you used and that flower soft is perfect. I got your Christmas card yesterday. THANK YOU! So super cute and sweet. I love it!!!
