Little Valentines Mailbox

Hello happy Tuesday morning. Today i would like to show you something i made this past weekend. I love those $1 Target mailboxes... i have made 2 years back so many of them for the kids teachers and i found 2 boxes in my closet that i did not alter yet. I thought i will give it a try again. Sorry for the bad pictures. I don't know.. all the fotos turned out so grey - i hope tomorrow will be a better light.
On one side i added Tilda sitting on the bench (the bench smaller one out of the Summer Sea Collection) and on the flag i added that cute cupcake stamp :-) it has the perfect size to use the Stampin up punches with it. On the scallops Liquid Pearls. The border behind Tilda is made with the new Martha Stewart Heart Lace punch. Loooove that one!
Here is one side embellished with big Prima flowers and a button and on the bottom picture you can see some of the pretty yummy ribbons you will receive in your Raspberry Ribbon kit for February. On this site of the flag i used a printable word stamp that you can find in the files from the Cutting Cafe. The big heart is from Magnolia - i wished i had that post mark stamp or to add over the heart - it sort of feels empty, but i thought an additional flower would simply be too much.
last but not least the other side - embellished with an other printed word sentiment from Reginas Cutting Cafe files
Thanks for swinging by today.
love
Claudia
