This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Another recolor for my favorite mod! It is no secret that I have been frustrated with the lack of selection of cards to go with MogHughson's lovely postal system mod. So I, as a few other creators have been as well, am working on filling those gaps! I present to you all today three simple "New Home" cards to send to your friends and family in celebration of the purchase of their new home! This category has not been touched yet within the mod, so I hope my mini set will help start a new tradition with sending a "Welcome to the neighborhood!" to your newest sims in Simstown.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with MogHughson's Postal System, it is a mod that allows your Sims to write, send, and receive cards via their mailbox. It is by far my favorite mod because not only can my Sims send cards, but once received, I can display them in my house! And since every household has a mailbox, it is the perfect add-on to your Sims game. (Trust me...you'll want this mod!) The cards I have made here (and in the past) are cards that work with this particular mod. MogHughson's original upload post has plenty more information about this if you are curious.




Hope you can all find a use for them in game! Please enjoy

Curious about what I am working on next? I keep a brief and updated segment dedicated to this on my profile page.

Technical: And finally, a huge thanks to SimPE, Adobe Photoshop Elements 13, Nvidia DDS Utilities (SimPE help), FRAPS (screenshot help), Mod The Sims, and the awesome MogHughson for her lovely postal system. It changed the way I play Sims.

I could never have done this without all of their hard work before me!

Nice idea.
I adore the box/painting you used behind the shelf with the cards, could I trouble you for a link to that? Thanks so much!
