Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Today’s card is a quilt block Snow Wonder card by Sue Macdonald from New Brunswick. I am loving this Happy Mail in Holland contest. Both Gerard and I love checking the mailbox for happy mail. This is the last card right now so I am hoping for happy mail today or tomorrow. My time here is slipping away!
Sue Macdonald’s Quilt Block Snow Wonder Card
Wow, that is a mouthful! Sue participated in my Cozy Christmas Online Retreat and the featured bundle was Snow Wonder. She must have sent this card right after the event because she says in her wonderful letter: I’m still in stampin’ mode from the weekend! My room is sadly a mess but I’m so pleased with the creations standing around. John’s impressed and suggested we stand the cards up throughout the house and NOT send any.” This makes me so very happy. It wonderful when family members and especially husbands appreciate our handiwork.
Sue used pearls to accentuate the eyes and buttons on the snowman and this gives him or her a totally different look. It just goes to show you that this snowman doesn’t have to be vintage!
Taking the Party Inside
Sue took the party inside by really stamping and decorating it beautifully. In fact, she writes that the inside of the card took her almost as long as the outside. The love was also shown to the envelope!!
Happy Mail Envelope
When you stamp on your envelope you can be sure that your recipient knows for sure that this is indeed happy mail!! What fun.
Not only did Sue stamp the outside of the envelope she also hand-lettered my name and address. I am really feeling the love with all these special
Moncton, New Brunswick
Sue comes from Moncton, New Brunswick. I spent a few hours there many years ago, so I know that I didn’t do this city justice at all. The city is named after a British officer but due to a clerical error it was misspelled. The officer’s name was Robert Monckton. Throughout history the city has had different names, all of them to do with the fact that it is situated at a distinct bend in the Petitcodiac river. Moncton has the distinct honour of being the first officially bilingual city in Canada, a fact that I was not aware of. If you want to read more about Moncton, you can check out my blog post here.
