Recipe for my Mail Lady and Thank You Card/ Merry Christmas Card

My Mail Lady's husband passed away not long ago. I was thinking about making her a sympathy card but instead I made this little recipe book up for her. I did not want to remind her of her loss again, I wanted to cheer her up! :)

She is such a sweet lady. In the summer heat I usually offer her some cold bottled water or a freeze and in the cold winter days something hot to drink and some home made cookies around Christmas. Last week when she delivered my mail I offered her some of the peanut butter kisses I made and she really enjoyed them. She also tasted my ginger bread cookies before.

Today she came to knock on my door to ask for the recipes so she could make them for her grand kids. I asked her to step in so I can make a copy of the recipes but she said she had to go but will get it tomorrow. So a light bulb went off in my head!

I will leave her a note inside the white page I left blank. I just have to think of what to say. :)
Here is the result! :)

What I used from CTMH: Jingle Level 2 Paper kit, Crystal Blue Card Stock, Juniper and Tulip ink pads, Holiday Trinkets Stamp set, Chocolate alphabet large, Flip - Flaps. ( Yes I am in love with the Flip-Flaps ! ), Recipe Box stamp set.

Thanks for looking!


  1. I almost cried! I think she'll love it. What a sweet thought.

  2. Ahh, Thanks Kim! I am almost 100% sure she will! I will post about it tomorrow!

  3. You have to let us know what she says!

  4. Jayma, She really loved it. Just saw her today and she said she showed her little recipe book to everyone!
