Happy mail

It's snowing AGAIN. Please give us dear Spring! I'm sooo ready for busy birds, buzzing bees and colourful flowers. Aren't you?

I have some beautiful mail to show you.

First, I did an ATC trade with Willy of Freubels en Zo.

You can see the ATC I made HERE.

Willy's ATC has an Irish theme. I love it, it's so gorgeous with the flowers and the butterfly. I also love how the woman is placed and that she's backed with a clover. Beautiful green background as well.

She made a beautiful pocket by wallpaper to put the ATC in. There is a tutorial on her blog about this. It's in Dutch though. Use google translator or just watch the pictures.

Also, I received a giveaway (I won, yay!) by Caroline of Glitter Tart Designs.
A fabulous ATC as well.

When I received this, I couldn't stop looking at all the wonderful details. The slightly open doors with tiny stones behind them (you have to enlarge the picture for this). The beautiful embellishments. The tiny man in the hot balloon. The glitters and ribbons on the balloon. The golden edging. And so on.

Thank you so much dear friends for your beautiful ATC's!!

Happy week(end) to you!

xx Wen


  1. Congratulations on the gift. It is beautiful.

    The pics of Sam helping you in the garden are priceless!

  2. Hi Wendy, Your ATC cards are unique. It is something I have never done, but I like looking at what other people have done. Sam is adorable and I can see my boys doing that at his age. They like helping grandma. My youngest won third in districts with his yellow pinewood derby car. Hope you have a wonderful day. Sun is shining so I am getting out of the house today with another round of snow coming it will be dig out again. Your Missouri Friend.

  3. I too wish it was Spring! Today is the first sunny day we have had in weeks but it is too cold to go out and do anything. I love your pictures of Sam in the garden.

    I am off to check out the tutorial. That is a wonderful ATC you received and thanks for sharing mine.
