SCRS Preview: Mailbox Josh

Hi, everybody! It’s the second day of new release previews at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, and today’s featured stamp is “Mailbox Josh”! He’s sending some “happy mail” to somebody special! I’m sure there’s somebody special that would love some “happy mail” from you too, right?


For each Mailbox Josh sold, Sparkle is donating a portion of the proceeds to Operation Write Home, a non-profit organization that sends care packages full of donated handmade cards to troops serving overseas so they can send “happy mail” home to their loved ones! For more information about OWH, including how you can help, visit their website!

For a chance to win Mailbox Josh, just visit each blog on today’s hop (full list below), leave a comment for each designer, then head over to the SCRS blog and comment on the Mailbox Josh post.
