Hello stampers! It was a very exciting afternoon at Bloemenlaan 6, the first happy mail in Holland has arrived! Actually it was the second one, the first was a Christmas photo card from my daughter Stefanie and her family. However, the first official happy mail for the contest arrived today and I was so so happy to open it up. Would you like to see it too?
Barb Gourlay’s Card
Barb Gourlay from Chatham, Ontario is the artist who made this card. I am so touched with how much thought went into making this card so personal. Where do I start? The obvious ones are the windmill stamp which perfectly suits my location. Detail number two is the little airplane on the banner. The third personal touch might be more subtle and that is the colour scheme. Barb chose blue and white because that is reminiscent of the famous Delft Blau which is the gorgeous blue and white pottery that Delft is known for. What you might not know is that Barb is also on my Beyond Pampered team in my second downline. She is a positive stamper who loves to share new things with me including fancy fold techniques. This one is called a side panel fold and you can find the instructions for this fold here.
Here is a look at one of the panels. I just love all the cute details, don’t you?
Happy Mail Contest
Thanks so much for stopping by, so nice to connect with people all around the world through a blog. It is so much easier being away from home when you can still connect with “your people” everywhere. This happy mail contest is just one more way to make that connection even sweeter. I hope you will consider joining in too! My mailing address is: Jackie Bultje c/o Gerard van der Sar, Bloemenlaan 6, 2691 JC ‘s-Gravenzande, Zuid-Holland, the Netherlands. Everyone who sends me a card will be entered into a contest to win either the Painted Labels dies or the Poppy Moments dies from the new mini catalog.
Just in case you missed the announcement the other day, a LOT of amazing things have been added to the clearance rack. The prices are really great too, so don’t miss out. The savings make it worth the splurge to order online and have it sent straight to your door. Here is the link to do that. If you prefer me to order it for you, I can do that as well, just send me a message.
