CAS Challenge

This card was based off of a CAS (Clean and Simple) sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I don't love it as much as some of the others I saw...but overall I'm happy with it. What do YOU think?



On another note, someone ran into our mailbox today. We are in a rural area where there are four mail boxes per metal post/base. The post is set in concrete. Whoever hit it this time did a really good job. All four mailboxes were sheared off the base. Two were savable but the other two (including ours) was not. They actually ran over ours (you could see the tire print on it). I thought it was really funny...just because how often do you see a FLAT mailbox? I asked hubby if that meant we can only receive FLAT rate postal items now. :-P He didn't find it as humourous as I did. LOL.



My hubby dug out the hole and replanted the metal base. We got a couple older ones and replaced ours and the neighbors next to ours. So now all is relatively well with the world. The pole itself is crooked so it looks like the leaning tower of mailboxes but at least we can get mail again tomorrow!
