JUGS Template Time

Hello! Today I'm playing along with JUGS22 - a template challenge hosted by Pam. I used Lauren's My Time Made Easy template, Happy Mail. This is a belated Valentine's gift for my SIL, Mary. Yes, I know.. I'm really late with this one... my excuse? I was sick over Valentine's weekend, then well.. time got away from me. I wanted to make this for her since, as a Postmaster, I knew she'd appreciate it...

Here's the front view (I just added a simple monogram letter for her last name -- I am wondering if my BIL will like this and want to replace their plain mailbox with this one?!

I made a card to go with it. I've already posted it here, but I wanted to show it together with the mailbox. I just love giving gifts that match! Now I just need to package this with all the other stuff I've been meaning to send off to her.. and before Sabrina snatches the mailbox and Dan eats all the chocolates!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
