Mail not MALE or is it?

Hey all Happy Wednesday!
Its time for a New ABC Christmas challenge
how are you getting on with your Christmas cards for this year?

I have a fun challenge for you to kick start your christmas cards or if your really good and have started this will help add to them!

This time we have a great theme and I can not wait to see what you all will make for this one? Our theme for this challenge is

M for Mail...

thats Mail as in Letters, post, postcards, postage etc
Not Male as it Men...But this card is rather masculine and so mine
will also be masculine.

Our sponsor is the fabulous Tammy Louise with Shape EZ

Here is my card, all in peacock distress inks its my total favourite and as blue is my all time favourite colour I decided to go monochrome I love how bright and sharp it looks,
A little memento stamped sentiment and star. I could not resist a bit of sewing too!

So then here are some challenges I am playing along with:

Everybody-Art-Challenge - Postage Stamp
Shopping Our Stash - Colour My World (use other colours but your favourite colour must be the star 
of the show) - Blue
Crafting Musketeers - Stamped Image
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes
Fab and Funky - Christmas
Craft Your Passion - Bold, Beautiful, Bright Colours
Sentimental Sundays - Include Sentiment - When I Grow Up - I want to be a train driver
The Corrosive Challenges - Use Favourite Colouring Medium - distress inks
Sisterhood of Crafters  - Monochromatic

  1. I love this card Samantha (I have the snowy house from the same range) the DI colour is fab and it will certainly be perfect for a "male" too, not to say ladies can't like trains of course!! The Lee illustrations girl with bunny is available as a stamp Samantha, I think that once they become "real" stamps they retire them from digi world!! xx

  2. Lovely card, and I really love this colour.

  3. Gorgeous card, Samantha. Love the colour you've chosen and I bet it would look fab in sepia too
