Some bird cards and a snail-mail giveaway

Hello ladies. Thank you to all who left me feedback on my last post! I just hope to inspire people as I get inspired by you all!
I have been into creativity a lot lately, but not only cards. I haven't posted any of the things I have been making with paper, only now and again on Pinterest, so I'm going to share in the form of sending somebody some 'happy mail'. You know we all like to see an envelope in the mailbox that's different, that's addressed to us and it just kind of makes a day extra special! I am not saying that it will blow you away, I just want to do a little share.

So, if you are interested, just leave a comment and I will send some 'snail mail' to the person chosen.

I am in the process of making a series of cards with these bird-prints. I love these prints so much! Right up my street and they mix and match with nearly every form of patterned paper. (Hint: One of these botanical bird prints will be in the snail mail). The Bible verses on the cards are in French, from Isaiah 41:10, one of the verses that have spoken to me in my situations that have been difficult in life. God is faithful.

This is the second one.

In the times I change up the creativity pattern, I am crocheting. Here are 'some' of the things I have made, including the headband which my grand-daughter is wearing.
I have also nearly finished two big double-bed blankets and just yesterday gave a baby-blanket away as a present for a new-born but forgot to take a photo. 
My fourth grandchild will arrive in October and another baby blanket will be added to my work-load! But I'm not complaining, I love it.

Have a blessed day!!

No stamping just die-cuts

Good afternoon in Creativity Land. As inspiration struck I'm posting some tag-cards. Usually I am active in three languages and it helps sometimes to not use a sentiment. I have a small drawer with patterned papers which I insist will all be used and I've found that die-cuts help me utilise them.

Diecuts used are a dimensional Rose, Leaves and Tags; also to use-up papers, some baker's twine and three crystals for embellisment.

On this card I have placed the tag upside down and embossed the rose for texture, even if it was with a snowflake embossing folder.

There are numerous other combinations I could use. Sometimes all one needs is a design to build on and then the fun begins.

Just adding another one as these were as scraps lying on the table and I was able to puzzle them together to make another card. That is what I like about crafting!
