ABC Christmas 'M' for Mail Challenge

Oh my goodness !! did you know that there are only 182 days left to Christmas !!  better get a wiggle on if we're gonna be ready in time eh !! :-)
I must admit, it does feel a bit strange swatting off the mosquitos while writing up a Christmas post,,, being eaten alive I am ,,,  but it is nice to have a boxful of cards ready and no last minute rush :-)

The theme for then next couple of weeks on the ABC Christmas Challenge is

'M' for Mail 
(of course it must be Christmas too ,,, don't forget that bit ;-))


As you can see I made a card and coordinating envelope ,,, makes it that bit extra special :-)


I have used this Simon's Exclusive Layered Tree die so many times, one of my all time faves ,, so easy and so effective, great for mass production ! :-)

I  used a Simon's Exclusive Postage Stamp Die to cut the paper and  a falling stars stencil together with some embossing paste, coloured with distress ink and I added some glitter bead gel too ,,, lovely and sparkly IRL.

I must admit ,,, I quite like this one ,,,,, 


Thanks for looking :-) I hope you will join in with the challenge ,,, the more the merrier and all that ;-)

Just noticed I have a few flowers that need dead heading ,,,, lol  oops :-)

Challenges:
Everybody Art ,,,, Postage Stamp
Sparkles Christmas Forum ,,, Fave Colour Combo ,,, I do love Kraft and Blue together
Holly Jolly Christmas ,,, Show Me Some Glitter ( Glitter Card)
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas ,, Anything Christmas




Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x

Oh I can see why you love that die, would be great for mass producing some quick cards. Great job on this card, and the envelope too.
