Mail Art Challenge for December

Hi everyone

Well Christmas is nearly upon us – where has the year gone! I’m as unorganized as ever. Haven’t got the tree up yet! I’m having cupboards built under my stairs. The cupboards are in but the doors and fillers have yet to be done so I’ve spent the day filling them. They are mostly for my craft stash which is enormous. I hate to think how much I’ve spent over the years, probably could have put a down payment on a larger house!! I have spent most of the day sorting through it all and putting it in some sort of order. I think a number of boot fairs will be necessary in 2014. I will probably never use half of it.

Well its time for Decembers Mail Art Challenge which of course is Christmas. If you pop over to www.newnannyblogspot you will see the other design team entry's and get all of the details.

This is a very quick envelope as I had completely forgotten to do it. Have been trying to get some christmas cards made as I feel really guilty if I send a bought card.

GEDC4703The lovely stamp is one from Stampendous. and I used Promarkers and Distress ink to colour.


I have added some sparkle to the snow on the branches but it is difficult to see in the picture. I would love to see your entry's so do have a go and send them to Julie.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a happy, healthy & wealthy New Year.

I look forward to you stopping by in 2014.

Mail Art Challenge no2

Julie’s 2nd Mail Art challenge is ‘Autumn’ You can click the link to see the other design team entries. Grab yourself an envelope and get creating, it certainly brightens Mr Postmans day delivering something other than a boring white envelope or the dreaded brown ones!

This is my entry for this challenge. The stamp is from the Lilyof thevalley range. They have some beautiful cute images. I stamped some larger leaves and drew the smaller ones and coloured with Promarkers.






Hope to see all of your entry's on Julies blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mail art challenge

Its a bit touch and go as to whether this post will actually appear on my blog as its been so long and not sure whether I can remember what to do!!!!!!
Unfortunately my crafting has been put on the back burner for some time due to work and decorating. There is a bit of light at the end of the tunnel on the decorating front but work doesn’t seem to be letting up! Anyway I will definitely be back blogging at least once a month as Julie is starting a new monthly challenge on her blog for Mail Art. The first theme as we are nearing the 31st of October has to be Halloween. This is my interpretation. I decided to hand draw on my envelope.
Sorry for the shadows on the photographs but it was an evening shot so I could get it in the post as I’d left my camera at work. So if you fancy having a go click on the link above for all of the information and join in the fun. Can’t wait to see everyone's entries.
