You've Got Mail

Today begins a new challenge at
The Sisterhood of Crafters
with Dar being our hostess and she has chosen the theme
'RED'
and using tile board below for inspiration.



I have to say there were so many ways I could of gone with this.....
the gingham, the cupcake, the bike, even the shaggy dog and tulips
had  my interest,
but then I spotted that little mailbox in the front left picture
and a little light bulb went off in my head...lol
I remembered last year I had purchased the cutest 
Cottage Cutz die called Kitty Love Mail:


Isn't that just the cutest die?
I love this cute little kitty!
There are 17 pieces in this little mailbox scene 
(not counting the clouds of course)
and even more pieces I didn't use.
I know some are intimidated by all those little pieces,
but a tiny dab of glue and tweezers, it only takes minutes
to put this together!



Here is a close up of 'Miss Kitty'.
The cutest little Valentine and/or birthday card ever!

Now it's your turn to get inspired not only by the tile board above,
but all the beautiful designs my 'sistahs' have created...
go take a peek at The Sisterhood challenge...
and join in with us!

Entering the following challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania....Use Lots of Red
Cards In Envy .... Be My Valentine 
Get Creative .... Red + One Color (2/28)
Simon Says Wednesday .... Cute
