I love going to the mailbox!
Getting mail is a fun task of my day. Magazines, bills, brochures … handmade cards. 🙂 The holidays are especially an exciting time for the receiving of mail. I enjoy looking through the holiday cards and pictures of our friends and family.
I will take down the tree this week and it only seems fitting to share some of the special cards I received this year from friends who live in Wisconsin.
This first card is from a friend who has a very “merry and bright” personality. Cathy is a friend I met at a scrapbook club event. She is super fun! It’s fitting that she used stars in her card as she herself shines her light to everyone like a star.

The second card is from a friend I also met at a scrapbook club. Shawny and Cathy are a “hoot” together and enjoy spending time together getting their scrap and card-making on! Reindeer are my favorite during Christmas.

Victoria is a very intricate crafter who really has fun with her designs. I met her at a scrapping retreat weekend getaway. She’s a giving person who enjoys giving back to people. I love this window card, she took her time adding color to the lights in the scene.

Lastly, this next card is from someone you’ve heard me speak of before … my upline, Shirley. She always has a fun way of using different colors in her designs. The designer series paper is from the holiday catalog and is so cute and quaint.

I hope you enjoyed a look into my maibox from this holiday season! And … to close with a little bit of cuteness. Don’t you just want to pinch those little cheeks on my cute little niece?!
