Feel Better!

Happy Monday!!!!!
I needed to make a card for our sweet mailman!
He had to have knee replacement surgery. For the last several months he has been wearing this huge knee brace. Always faithful and never complaining delivering our mail.
 So I wanted to send him a special card to let him know how much we appreciate him and how much we miss him.

I saw a card similar to this one made by Christine Meyer in the July Cards magazine.
I thought this idea would be perfect, but I wanted to add a mailbox.
The house was stamped onto the DP with houses4us (SOL) stamp. I cut it out and put it on the blue paper to represent the sky. I felt the dry embossing made it look like the wind and clouds.
I cut out the fence and ran it thru a woodgrain EF to give it some dimension!
The green grass was cut with the Fresh Cut Grass (MFT) die. And the clouds were cut with the Flat Bottom Clouds (MFT). All of this together made a really cute scene!
 I hope he likes it!

Thanks for stopping by!
