This envelope went to an aunt in an area of the country getting having a hard winter, so for fun, I sent an extra copy I had of the childhood book The Tough Winter. It's about rabbits and other woodland animals making it through a "tough winter," hence the envelope decorations.
The envelope was to a friend. The enclosed card had a cat an a field of white flowers.
These went to a brother and sister. They are both working in books from Awana's Truth & Training program, so I wanted to write them on some paper I had for it and use the matching sticky notes as labels (attached with glue stick) yet I didn't want them to be exactly the same, so I used colored envelopes and different stamps...
Then sealed them with different tapes
This is the back of their mom's envelope. I'm pretty excited about what I wrote on inside, but as she may read this blog, and I'm not sure it arrived yet, I'm holding off on posting it. It may get it's own post with a printable...
I discovered something making this envelope-my stamp pad was dry, but I just put a couple drops of water on it and it worked fine!
Obviously this still needs another postage stamp added, but as it didn't match as well, I scanned it before I added the other one.
I'd love for you to share your mail-themed posts:
The name “Smiles Sent Saturday” denotes my hope these things I mailed made the people who got them smile.
