Thanks to the Postman

A week or so ago it was really cold in Saskatchewan. So cold that Amy and Julie spent some time talking about it on their blogs.

I decided that I should make a thank you card for my Canada Post letter carrier to show my appreciation for the work they do even when it's -40 or colder.

This card is inspired by the sample in the current SU catalogue using the A Little Bit of Happiness hostess set.

The card base is my favourite colour from the 'in colour' series. River Rock. It is a great neutral and goes with everything.

The background is stamped with Autumn Fest (retired). I love the way these two sets work together.

The strips are Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa, both with distressed edges and then sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.

The main image was stamped on Water colour paper, and water coloured using ink pads in a variety of fall colours. This was my very first attempt at water colouring, and I am pleased with the result.
