Ya'll should have hopped on over from Sony's blog, but if you've just happened to come check on me, I'm almost at the end of the hop, so you'll want to head on back to the Verve blog where we started this inspiration train!
I'm truly excited and happy to have some fresh faces on the team and wish them all the "best of luck" in their "Divahood". So I had "luck" on my mind when I decided to create something a little different besides a card this time around. I had picked up several of those stinkin' cute mailboxes at the Target Dollar Spot during the Valentines season for my little once a month Art Group. Everyone decorated them however they wanted and this is what I came up with. I used the Lucky You stamp set and also the Shamrock Dies Set to cut a few stamped shamrocks out for extra decoration. The label on the side is cut from the Classy Label Die, and the fluffy bow on top is made from the new Seam Binding Ribbon that Verve now carries. This one is from the Spring Fling collection. I think this turned out so cute and would be fun to fill with those gold chocolate coins!
But before you go, I must tell ya'll there's a PRIZE up for grabs! So be sure to leave a little shout out in the comment section of each blog as you hop about to be entered in a drawing for a $30 gift certificate to Verve Stamps! Check out all the details over at the Verve Blog!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Because I wanted to keep this project quick and simple, I left my Mod Podge at home and went with something a little more zippy to adhere that paper to the mailbox---Scor-Tape. It's a good thing.
