Bitty Mail

Some time ago, my oldest invaded my 3D stash and decorated a little mailbox (How dare her! I was going to get around to altering that mailbox. It was only down there - what? two years?).

She promptly put it into the living room and directed everyone to send her mail on a regular basis. My mother does a much better job at getting mail to her (mostly daily), but I've put things in there for her as well. I knew it was time to send some mail, so I headed downstairs to make something quickly. I couldn't just scribble on a legal pad, right? This card took me five minutes - LITERALLY. I used scraps on my desk and made them fit into something that would work. Everything on this card is a scrap - even the ribbon which I used to hold the card closed! Um, yes, I did use a cameo coral marker because my earth element markers were already on my desk and I would have had to get up and walk across my room to get my soft subtles. It really looks fine (don't judge me!). I think it turned out just precious! The card measures 2x2 - it really is tiny!

How adorable! I love that your daughter "stole your stash"! A future SU! demo in the making. Everytime I'm missing something, I first go ask my 11yo DD if she has it. She loves creating too.
