The Old Post Box

Must have felt like going very British today ROFL. You have to love our wonderful post boxes and so good to see they are one of the few things that have not changed since my childhood. It still makes me smile seeing the old post box in the village where my Mum lived, still there, still doing the same old job. So many different memories come flooding back when we drive past it of walks to the harbour with my parents, nipping up to the village on my Chopper bike to get some sweets, posting Mum's letters for her in latter years as she was a great letter writer. Oh boy, so many memories. For this card I used the digi Post Box which you can find here Coloured with Copics, stencilled Union Jack and then stamped stamps and text on the base layer which was also heat embossed as I love a bit of texture on my cards.

I am entering this card in the following challenges : -
