Shopping Our Stash #307 ~~ Happy Mail

The new challenge at Shopping Our Stash is related to anything to do with mail, letters, typewriters, pens what ever you can think of that has to do with mail. I really had to wrap my head around this one,  I must say I was confused over it but it is really easy.  I brought a house house stamp with me that had to do with writing and a couple of 6 X 6 patterned paper packs, Be for I started I check out the paper to see what colours I would be using.....can you imagine my surprise when two out of the three packs were Christmas, okay we went with that as I always try to enter the Jingle Belles Rock challenge at least once a challenge.  Here is my finished card.

I sure was happy with the patterned paper pack it had a few mail related in it, of course the Jingle belles challenge is layers lots of layers I knew I saw a sketch that I could use, gotta love it when you get a `three-fer`and they all mesh together. My image is from House Mouse Designs and is called Taking Notes featuring Monica, the sketch is from The Challenge 86 (sketch)

As you see Monica is writing a letter to Santa

Finished inside using the same patterned paper that is on the front. I was amazed I remembered to bring a Christmas sentiment with me. kudos to me!!!

I would like to enter this in:
