Snowy postbox

While I was getting lunch ready today I printed out six pictures using the lovely 'snowy postbox' digital image from Delicious Doodles, just colouring the postbox with a red copic. So I had images ready to make six quick cards.

This is the first, using the square sketch for Mojo Monday 217:

Papers are Wild Rose Studio traditional Christmas, the ribbon is from Handy Hippo and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

This is another card for my own CHNC challenge 49: mainly monochromatic - I'd love to see you there if you haven't entered into the fun already.

For today Vickie (Christmas card gang - see the list on my sidebar and contact any of us for further information) has challenged us to make a card featuring snow and/or snowmen/women, so this is also for that challenge.

This is also for:

Creative card crew: monochromatic
AiFactory 98: something red
Cardmadfairy 22: winter wonderland
Hooked on craft 13: winter wonderland
Whimsical Wednesday: Christmas/winter + layer it
Rainbow lady 181: Christmas carol: In the bleak midwinter
Crafty calendar: cold and frosty
Sweet stampin: it is snowing
St Luke's December: let it snow
Delightful: let it snow
One stop craft 160: let it snow
Shelly's: there's no business like snow business
One stitch at a time 91: be square (I love making square cards)
Come and get it: anything Christmas
Addicted to stamps 18: Christmas card
Gingerloft 30: Christmas and winter
Ribbon girl: jingle all the way to Christmas
Pollycraft 120: Christmas fun
Digistamps4joy 33: merry Christmas but no mouse in the house
Fairytale 29: Christmas
Raise the bar 86: it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Simply create too 1: all about Christmas
Stampin with the dragon: anything goes - Christmas
Cupcake craftroom December: traditional Christmas
Jingle belles: wrapping it up
Bee crafty: it's Christmas
Joanna Sheen 1: Christmas wishes
Stamp, scrap & doodle: holiday card
PanPastel UK 11: the great outdoors
Meljen 87: inspired by a holiday song: I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Alphabet: V for very vibrant
Ribbon reel 16: anything goes - use ribbon
Victorine 22: ribbon
Sundays with Crissy: anything goes
The paper shelter 42: anything goes
Simon says: anything goes
Crafty boots: anything goes
