I Hate to Post and Run, But ... A Fifteen Minute Project

Pin It

Today's 15 Minute Project was actually made in 10 minutes ... but who's counting?!?

At 11:50 this morning, I suddenly remembered that today was my terrific mail carrier's birthday ... and she was due to arrive any minute! I quickly embossed these three pink cupcakes in the Cuttlebug, cut them with a Cuttlebug postage stamp-style die, tied on a ribbon and was done!

I was hesitant to give her this card because it's soooo plain but she loved it! She especially loved the cupcake "stamps" ... being a USPS employee and all. And then she pointed out how "clever I was to use 20 on the stamp since that's the day the new postal rate increase takes effect." Oh, yeah. That's me. Clever.

I'll be back tomorrow with a kinda kewl project I'm working on. Thanks so much for sharing part of your busy day with me!

That's brilliant! What a lovely thing to do, Deb! And I love the card.
Hmmm . . . my mail carrier drinks, sleeps in his car in between houses, and is missing a few teeth.
Card ideas, anyone??
