Stamp Something Challenge....Valentine Mailbox & Card

Hope everyone is having a nice week. I finally finished a couple of things to share. :-)

As many of my blog friends know I belong to the Fairy God-Auntie program. My sweet little Agustina moved & I now have a little boy named Daniel. I am such a girly-girl when it comes to making things...it is difficult for me to come up with ideas for boys.

Anyway...I bought this Doodlebug Design flocked paper a few months ago. Thought it would be cute on the mailbox with the frog. Sorry for the icky photos...I took them real quick before shipping the box. I should have checked them before I sealed the box. Oh well...you can get an idea. The card & mailbox are much cuter in person. Hope Daniel enjoys his very green frog mailbox filled with yummy chocolate hearts. :-)

FYI: I just realized that I hadn't visited the Stamp Something Challenge this week...yippee it is Valentine, so I'm going to use this as my challenge this week.
Here are the details of the challenge:
This week's challenge is Something for your Valentine. It can be a card, a gift, or some candy, whatever it is you are giving to your Valentine. We are sponsored this week by Katharina of Whiff of Joy. She has generously donated 2 of her newest, cutest stamps for our lucky winner!!

Oh Deb you did a beautiful job on this I love that polka dot paper and the frog is just adorable and I am sure Daniel will love it.

Deb, this is too stinkin cute! That paper is perfect and the frog is adorable. I know Daniel will love it and you gave me an idea for my nephews, if I can find the mailboxes still. Like you, everything I do tends to be "girly girl" (I wonder why?LOL)... My nephews would love this! So, I don't know about the fairy god auntie, I would love to know more. Sounds like a wonderful thing!

Hugs to you...
