Saturday snail mail...

My endeavor to mail 52 letters in 52 weeks continues.

I found that I had quite a few card photos stacking up, so it's time for a bit of a Saturday snail mail catch up.

The latest group were inspired by Lori Vliegen watercolors.

I figured if I could do birdies, then I could do posies too.

 I actually disassembled the following one, trimmed it down, added a stamped message, and then reassembled it in another way and used it as my mother-in-law's Mother's Day card...I just forgot to take a photo of it finished, so what you see is actually the before.

I had also made a few previously that were mailed out in April.

I found the images of the blue and white plates online and printed them out on watercolor paper.  Then I cut them out and placed them on a lace-lined 'shelf' on a kraft card base.

And then I was inspired by Amethyst Designs...hers were stamped and then white embossed on kraft paper.  I used a white gel pen to doodle some flowers on kraft cards.

There were quite a few mailed that I didn't get photos of.

Accountability stats: 19 weeks / 21 letters


  1. Such pretty cards, I love them all.The birds are so cute and the flowers are lovely,the plate card would be perfect for a mother's day.

  2. I was so very happy to receive your card and the fact it was the blue and white china plate one, made me doubly happy! Very thoughtful.
    It's so pretty and I just love your cursive handwriting. I shall reply very soon. Thank you my friend,

    Cheers - Joolz xx

  3. Thanks, Dawn!

    Joolz, you’re so welcome! Glad you liked it.

  4. Finally getting around to doing some blog-reading after our weekend away. I'm behind as usual - Life Last Week may or may not make it up this week - it may end up as a Life Last Last Week! I love your cards! I have a whole board on Pinterest called Cards I Like - I so admire the card-making talent in others although I am quite useless at it. I think I want the card to look like the picture I've pinned immediately and as they take a lot of work, that never happens so I give up. I did persevere and make cards for my Mum - she loved them no matter how imperfect I thought they were.
