The Fish-Footman began by producing from under his arm a great letter, nearly as large as himself, and this he handed over to the other, saying, in a solemn tone, `For the Duchess. An invitation from the Queen to play croquet.' The Frog-Footman repeated, in the same solemn tone, only changing the order of the words a little, `From the Queen. An invitation for the Duchess to play croquet.'Just like the Queen's letter to the Duchess, our challenge this month is to create something with a postal theme - stamps, postcards, letters, envelopes; however you choose to interpret that. As always, all entries that meet the challenge theme are accepted but Wonderland entries are encouraged (they get two chances instead of one in the prize drawing). Friday, June 22 is the last day to enter this month's challenge.
Then they both bowed low, and their curls got entangled together.
--Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Our sponsor is Stamp Attack, a British company that is well known (among other things) for their fantastic Alice stamp plates which have sold to customers all over the world. In fact, Helena Bonham Carter, the actress who played the Red Queen in the Tim Burton Alice movie, purchased sets of Alice stamps from Stamp Attack, which were then delivered to the studio! Enabler alert: Stamp Attack offers speedy worldwide shipping for only £1 on unmounted stamp orders, so go on and check out their beautiful stamps!
The winner will receive a Stamp Attack gift certificate for £13.50, which is equivalent to one of the Alice stamp plates! We will be showing off two new offerings from Stamp Attack: Alice Faux Postage and Mouses Tail, aren't they great?

Please stop by my blog, Savvy Sisters Studio, to see close up photos of all the panels and especially to leave a comment for me over there, because I do so treasure your comments!
Next up is Amy Bowerman Stucki of Plucking Daisies, who is continuing her series of garden/yard art with a fabulous Wonderland mailbox! Of course she also retains her title as the reigning Queen of Glitterblast spray paint!!!
I'll bet this is amazing in real life as the stamps are embossed on metal! She has embellished with cutouts from the Tim Holtz Postcard embossing folder, I had to use that one on my project also! The cool thing is that it will actually withstand the elements so it can really be used as a mailbox!
stop by Plucking Daises to leave a comment for Amy, and to see more photos!
