Did you know that you can play in our Challenges even if you don't have a blog!
Simply upload your project to a photo sharing site, including your own personal Facebook accounts, and set the privacy setting to "Public" and include the name of our Challenge in your photo description! You can not link to projects shared in a closed Facebook Group because the linky tool can't access it there! It's that easy so do join the fun!

Please note that our December challenge will end on 20th to avoid the Christmas holidays.

Some Mail Art inspiration from our Team Dream :

Kim has used for the front of her mail art :Lost Coast Designs Cityscape, Pawn, and border stamps Filmstrip, Numbers and Vertical ABC Border.

Back of Kims mail art :

Nikki has used one of Lost Coast Designs Mini Flying Ladies, Circle Frame and Old Typewriter Alphabet SOTA. As well as Carmen's Verandas Postcard Background.  

Granne has used Lost Coast Designs Journaling letter guide and Sun Goddess :

Nan has used Lost Coast Designs Butterfly Face and Bubbles Background.

Reminder to read our rules so that your entry is eligible to win prizes :)

AND don't forget that we have lifted our restriction that only LCD/CV stamps be used to enter our challenges.  But if you do use LCD/CV images then your entry will count as two which means you double your chances of winning.

Tell all your friends, come join us, and stay to play :)

We have a few events going on here, a Day of the Dead contest and Carmen's Veranda Christmas in December. Come back and visit us...
