Easter Bunny Mailbox

I have had this white mini mailbox from Target dollar spot for 2 years now and it wasn't until a recent visit to Cedar Rapids that I bought the fluffy boa to glue to it. I have had this idea in my head for awhile now and believe me, those boa feathers are a doozy to work with. They are everywhere in my stamp room.

Soot Stamping Card

Okay, so yesterday my sister drove all the way down to my house to stamp and wouldn't you know that all those thunderstorms that passed through here.......we lost power for 1 1/2 hours. BUT, we made a bad situation good. I have wanted to try soot stamping technique for years now and since the weather brought a power outage, well, I lit a candle and VIOLA! I had the excuse to try it.

Now this was my second attempt at it, my 3rd and 4th, well, let's just say, I learned why you should do it with lights on.....the flame caught the edge a couple of times.........
