Happy Mail Monday - April 24

This card is from my mom and came with a nice chatty letter. It was put together with bits and pieces that I send her from time to time. I actually received this card last week and forgot to share it. As the week wore on I was glad I had it to share because it looks like the mailman wasn't going to be bringing me anything to share this week.
When I mentioned the lack of mail to hubby, he reminded me that I got a box on Tuesday. I got it because I have cool friends who make sure I don't miss out on cool things. You may recognize this box as coming from Paper Pumpkin.
In case, I didn't have enough new things to play with my Green with Envy prize arrived on Friday. I've seen some cool things done with this set so I'm looking forward to playing with it
On Saturday the mailman decided to stop holding out on me and brought me these three on Saturday. The first two cards are from my weekly swap. One from last week, one from this... It was sender error, not the post office this time. The bunny card is from a spring themed swap I joined. I was going to do a rainy day card but rain isn't really what defines spring in Arizona. I should have though because everyone else did.
 
This is the card I made for the spring themed swap. I'm not sure why I nixed rain but opted for this card instead. This card isn't what Arizona is like in spring either.
The Fine Print: Stamps on my card by Stampin' Up, designer paper by Basic Gray, and card base from A Muse Studio.

You ended up with a lot of goodies in the mail last week, PJ! Wow! I LOVE your spring card! Those bright flowers are much prettier than rain!

Great mail week after all! I really love the card you made, whether or not it's like Spring in Arizona!

Now that's a real mail delivery you've got there! Everything looks so pretty, especially the floral card you made! Love the cheery, spring colors!

So many great cards - I love that starfish one... and why shouldn't you picture spring any way you like? We spend our whole time here in the south-east of the UK pretending that there's always snow at Christmas (once in my 48-year lifetime so far...). Those flower stamps look fantastic - look forward to seeing what you do with them.
