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?
Stamp Till U Cramp created a Wonderland mailbox, complete with a key for the flag, along with lots of Wonderland post! I don't think the mail will fit inside the box however, as a the Mouse and his Tail have taken up residence inside in his mossy birds nest! I love the big black ears and music covered body on the mouse.
Please visit Erin's blog for all the details and to leave her a comment on her charming project!
Barbara Washington of Magic Delights created a box full of Wonderland memories for Alice to enjoy! The Stamp Attack frog footman is the perfect introduction, and what a great tie-in to our challenge quote. And look at all the wonderful goodies Barbara has created inside!
And the Stamp Attack Mouse's Tail appears inside!
Next Alice finds a bundle of postcards! Barbara has done a wonderful job creating these vintage beauties!
