Joys of Childhood - special delivery

What a wonderful theme at Gingersnap Creations for this month. And so fitting for August. The first Chestnut Theme challenge is: Babes and Tots
Normally it is the stork delivering the babies but now and again they need a little bit of help ... and postmen are just the right people to give a hand with special deliveries! The idea came about after I saw the image at Flickr. I couldn't help it, I had to use it. It is just too cute.
At first the paper from Prima Marketing is layered onto a square white card, the edges are slightly distressed with some distress ink. I cut a label for the sentiment using a ledger image from the Vintage Moth. The embellishments are some lace, staples, stamped postmarks from Craft Individuals and a stamp and a little found object in form of a little metal bird.

To see more wonderful childhood pieces, just pop over to the Gingersnap blog - get inspired - and join us. Petra.
