{SPD} SugarPea Designs is turning ONE!



Hey there! I am soooo super excited to be sharing today's post with you! It's SugarPea Designs FIRST Birthday Bash! I am so very proud of my friend Wendy's hard work. effort and love that she's put into SugarPea Designs first year :) I am very honoured to have been with her from the start, and hope to spend many more SPD Birthdays with her!!


I made this fun little card to give to my mailman, Timothy, because he is just really great at his job and in a rural area like this, that's sometimes hard to find! I forgot to put a Christmas card in the mailbox for him, so I made him this masculine Thank-you card instead. I am tucking a Tim Hortons GC in there as well. I absolutely ADORE this little penguin from the set Happy Mail, and as Canadian Customs was thoroughly enjoying my stamp package, I didn't receive this guy in time for our release peek! So this is my first time inking him up! I coloured with copics, adding pastel cheeks in. I pieced the hat and mail bag. I used the little elements from the Air Mail Set die, as well as the envelope from Special Delivery Accents. I rolled up a little piece of DP and tucked it into the open slot in the envelope die. I used this weeks SSSC for my layout!


 Here is the inside, with the other portion of the Air Mail Set die and another sentiment from Happy Mail.
