Going Postal


A little change of style for me today I have gone for the shabby Chic style in soft spring colours
The DP is from K&Company and I distressed it and stamped the background with a french script stamp that I have had some time
The letters stamp I have also had quite a few years
I've just bought this lovely lace from eBay its so pretty and the flowers are from Tabby crafts.
I have entered this into these challenges;
Incy wincy Challenge Anything goes
Charisma Cardz challenge Girly card with flowers
ECP Challenge orange
Everybody-Art pastel
Quirky challenge Going Postal
Stampavia and more Challenge distressing
Paper play challenge pretty pastels
Right now you want a clue to this weeks Friday candy don't you ??
OK here it is ..........."Most of us will be one someday"!! have fun guessing
Thanks for dropping by have a great day
