Spring card to brighten your day!

I've been so busy recently but I finally had time to make another card to share with you. I made this card to enter in My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday challenge and also Peachy Keen's sketch challenge. The throwback Thursday challenge was to create a project with flowers using the "Walk in My Garden" cartridge. I didn't have that cartridge so I used "Create a Critter" instead. I also used Gypsy Wanderings for the blue background tag and the green and white tags. The sentiment is from Emma at My Creative Time's stamp set called "Turn That Frown Upside Down". I hope you enjoy!

Valentine's Day Mailbox

I am on vacation from work for a few days and I finally got a chance to do some crafting! I was inspired by the design team over at Peachy Keen Stamps because they all did these cute little Valentine's Day mailboxes. I went ahead and picked one up myself while I was at Target today. I really like how it turned out and now I am so tempted to pick up some more and use them for other holidays as well. I think it's going to make a really cute gift tin... now just to figure out what gift I am going to put in it lol. Here is what I used:

red mailbox from Target's dollar spot
Peachy Keen's Pk-570 Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment stamp set
My Creative Time's "You Had Me at Chocolate" stamp set
K and Company KP Valentine Paper Pad
Core'dinations Cardstock
D'vine Swirls and Swiss dot Cuttlebug embossing folder
sticky heart and heart jewels from the "Heart Accessory Pack" - on clearance at Michael's
black ribbon from Michael's
Once Upon A Princess cartridge for the doll
Gypsy Wanderings cartridge for the scalloped oval
Sweet Treat cartridge for the circle scallops and for the hearts

These are the challenges I have entered it in:

Peachy Keen's Let's Face it Friday- Altered Card Storage

Polka Doodle's week 5 challenge- With Hearts

Crafting With Christina- Valentine's Day Project Not a Card
