Postbox at CCC

Hello there! Well I'm just back from doing a craft declutter at Carnforth and I just realised that I had forgotten to do my post for Christmas card club. The theme this fortnight is 'postbox' and I made only two cards this time around - its been a busy few weeks!

I used a chocolate baroque stamp for my main image. The square card I did on a gelli print, the rectangular card just on a reguar piece of card. All subsequent colouring was done using inktense pencils.

My mum was busy - she made two cards too. This first one used hobbyart stamps...

..and this one she made using a hunkydory pad/image. 

Thanks for another great theme idea! I just wish I had time to do another one!  Have to save my energy for the next challenge which I am sure will roll around quite soon!

Have a great evening!
