Happy Mail for Time Out/SSS Wednesday Challenges

Over at the Time Out Challenge our inspiration is this photo of a very inviting couch with fun pillows under this cool wooden wall art.

Say Hello: Perk up your home with a friendly welcome sign. For an added boost, choose a bright, funky color. Source: Instagram user decorame

I experienced a ping like my friend Bev does on a regular basis and it wouldn't leave me alone until I made this card. It's a pretty literal take on the photo. As a nod to the fabric of the couch I used an off white card with specks of thread or something in it. Please don't ask me who makes it because I've had it for longer than I care to admit. The big colorful pillow is cut from a postcard that I got years ago from a local museum.


Stamp: Winnie & Walter (mail)
Die: MFT (happy), Spellbinders (wonky squares)
Wood Veneer Paper: Simon Says Stamp

Sending this to
