Snail Mail For Max - Hope It's Handmade

That Sassy Pat is the Hostess over at Sassy Cheryl's this week.   She wants to see some Birthday Cards.  I for one know that I cannot get enough of them built up in my stash.  Boy cards are always needed so I selected this image of Snail Mail For Max as my subject this week.  Someone has mailed Max a package and a letter.  Do I see a little heart on that letter?  I wonder if it smells like perfume?  Hmmmm, what does little Max have going on in his life?

Snail Mail for Max comes with this sentiment and a couple more.  There is even a stamp with hearts all over it.  You can pick this up for yourself in Sassy Cheryl's store by clicking here.  You could also get it free for yourself if you win the challenge this week.  All you have to do is use a design by Cheryl Alger and make it into a birthday something.  It could be a card, tag, whatever.  Just be sure and use a digi from Cheryl Alger , enter it here and the Random Thingee may choose you as winner.  Winner gets 2 free images from the Sassy Cheryl Store.

Did fate make me select this image this week? I chose this image of a mailbox and made the card last week. then Sunday morning we woke up to discover that  someone had smashed our mail box. We had to buy a new one and my Granddaughter and I installed it today in the rain.  We live on the main street in our subdivision and Saturday night someone drove down my street and took a baseball bat to the mailboxes on my side of the street.  My husband said he was going to get a 410 shotgun and some rock salt pellets.  He plans on shooting them right in the ------.  He said it won't kill them, but they won't be sitting for a long time.  LOL

Well hop on over to the Sassy Cheryl website and check out the other creations my design team sistahs have made this week.  I just love seeing the talent in these lovely ladies.  Every week it gets better and better.

Have a good one and make sure crafting is built into your schedule this week.
