Empty Mailbox

Here is a card I made for my brother who is on his mission. He's been promising to send me a letter since he's been out. He's been out a year and nothing. I understand why he isn't writing, he doesn't have the time. Then he was transferred to another area the week of my b-day so he missed that. So I made him this card as a reminder and as a joke. Thought it was funny. :) I did get a letter from him a week after my b-day. Better late than never! :)

I used the Doodlecharms cartridge for the mailbox. I added the post to the mailbox myself. The spiderweb is from the Mini Monsters cartridge. I added silver stickles to the web. I added a little spider w/ a black marker. It just needed it. :) I then used the Versamarker on the crease of the mailbox door to add extra embellishment. The designer paper is from the Making Memories Just Chillin' designer paper pack. I embossed the background w/ the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder. Also used was twine and PTI paper.

~ Thanks for looking!

Ah sweetie. I saw this on my dashboard and I got a little tear. How sad for you. This card should definitely get the point across. I love it!! I might just have to scraplift it to send to a few of my friends that are s-l-o-w in writing back! Have a great day and I hope the mailbox fills up soon!
