Card crafting & mail news!

Happy New Year! Hope this New Year has been treating you all nicely so far. No complaints on my end. I never make resolutions but I do give myself challenges. Here are a few: trying one new recipe a week because I have become so bored with eating the same foods, more crafting and opening an online shop, working for myself, and taking care of me for a change.
Below are a couple of birthday cards I made for some special friends. Instead of rubber stamping I decided to print out some vintage images. I think they turned out nicely.

I received a bit of mail in the past two weeks, mostly swaps. The ones below are from a swap partner and the themes were; Christmas Tree Deco and Snowman Deco. I think they are lovely. She also included a cute Christmas card.

My friend Claire from New Zealand sent me a pretty House Mouse stamped Christmas card and some ribbon.

These three Cute Characters at Christmas FBs are from a group swap. Adorable!

A cute thank you card from my friend Nicole in Massachusetts, USA.

A sweet letter from my friend Agnes from Poland which included a Christmas card, FBs and lovely postcards.

An absolutely beautiful Vintage Christmas Deco from another group swap. She also send a cute Christmas card.

And, three lovely Vintage Ads FBs from yet another group swap.

I'll be working on swaps this weekend and doing more letter writing. I've been in a writing mood for the past two weeks. Have a great weekend everyone!
