Just like the Queen's letter to the Duchess, our challenge this month was to create something with a postal theme - stamps, postcards, letters, envelopes; however you chose to interpret that.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.'Then they both bowed low, and their curls got entangled together.
--Chapter 6, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

I adored this textured collage from Ana Caldatto of Scrap da Ana! Be sure to go to her blog to see all the wonderful details; I especially love the stamping over text paper. Be sure to notice the address, I was so tickled to be included!
Altered Celtic Gypsy. I love her fish and frog footmen, so interesting!
Tattered Roses 41 made this wonderful postcard. I especially love the cut-up and sponged text on the back, and the border of flourishes on both sides.
The Scrap Yard, and the layers of texture and dimensional details are really fun.
Sue The Iron gives us another postcard, and I love the vivid PanPastel background covered with intricate line-art images in black.
