House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge ,,, Envelope Art

Thanks for all your lovely entries to our Friends challenge on the HM&F Monday Challenge :-)

This time it was Sue K's turn to choose the theme and what a FUN it is !!

ENVELOPE ART !! decorate an envelope !!! easy !! :-)

We are sponsored this week by RK Stamps who will be giving one lucky entrant a choice of HM stamp !! :-)

I decorated mine very simply compared to some of my teamies !! I just went with the thought that this will be going in the post and not handed to the recipient, and it will definitely be going air mail !! I used this gorgeous Butterfly Express image that was in a set by Joanna Sheen. I coloured it with copics and added a little star dust stickles. I won the postage stamp on a challenge a long time ago and can't remember who made it ,,, so if anyone knows can you tell me :-) I used an air mail stamp that I bought in a stationers and is well used ,,, the address was added in picasa and is not actually written on the envelope :-)

I used the small butterlfy from the HM set on the envelope flap and the sentiment was in the same challenge win :-)

Challenges :

Die Cut dreams ,,,,, Anything BUT a Card

The DT have made some AMAZING beautifully decorated envelopes and you have to go to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them :-)
