Welcome to the last day of the hop.  I hope you have enjoyed viewing the new releases this week!  Today's set is "All Postal" and it's such fun to play with.  You can create your very own postcard from scratch!  Design it any way you like.  The set includes a stamp all finished up for you or you can make your own with the stamp outline in two different sizes.  

For my card I created a stamp using the small "stamp" outline.  I masked everything off the postage stamp except for the 25cents, punched out a butterfly and glued it to my "postage stamp".  I used the chain from LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to divide the sides of my postcard and I stamped "Post Card" vertically.  Then to finish it off, I stamped in black the postal mark!  

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog this week.  I hope you will check out the rest of the team to see their fabulous projects and don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win today's stamp set! 

Supplies: Stamp: MFP a HC - All Postal.  Paper: Crumb Cake, Prima Mktg - Madeline Collection.  Acces: MS 3 in 1 Classic Butterflies punch and SU! heart punch, ribbon from Hobby Lobby  and Paper Studio - Spiral Clip
