By Airmail

Hi everyone and welcome! It's Jenny here hosting the latest challenge 'By Airmail' on Zoe's behalf with thanks to her for picking a great theme. She just loves sending and receiving letters in the mail. And especially love the stamps, airmail stickers and postmarks that these letters pick up along the way. For this challenge, create a vintage or shabby chic postal themed project. Think old fashioned aircraft, airmail stamps, post marks, postage stamps.

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team, because choosing just one winner is so hard!

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words Frilly and Funkie Challenge. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

Before sharing the first of the Design Team projects we are sad to announce that this will be the last challenge featuring Frilly team mate Autumn Clark. I'm sure you'll all agree that Autumn has shared so many gorgeous pieces and fantastic tutorials with us over the past year and she will be very much missed. The whole team thank Autumn so much for her contributions and wish her every success for the future.

It's time for a second helping of ideas and gorgeous projects, this time from the Funkie side of the Design team. Click on each photo for a closer look and on the links above to find out more about them;
