Mail Time at FSC

Hello and welcome to another Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this time it's 'Mail Time', so anything with letters, postage stamps, postcards, its up to you, and as long as you include at least one 'real' stamp, we'd love to see you join us.  Again we have our wonderful sponsor Flonzcraft who are offering 1 lucky random winner a $20 gift cert to spend in their online store.

I decided to use this Crafty Individuals post card stamp. The background is Tumbled Glass DI, and then randomly stamped with various  postage cancellation stamps and Postcard headings. The gauze was dyed with DIs.
It sat on my desk for a couple of days 'needing' something - then DH said I should decorate our little Summer House as the painted walls look bare - so the idea was born and a trip to the beach was needed to make this......

The rest of the Design team have as usual produced some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over here to take a look.

 I am entering this at:
  Crafty Individuals - Sea, Sun and Beach
  Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
  Crafts & Me - Anything Goes
  Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes

That's all from me, except to say, Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Gorgeous, Avril... the blue panel with the vintage postcards was already lovely, but the hanging you've created with the corrugated background and shells and driftwood just lift it onto another level - wonderful make!
