Hello and a happy Sunday to all of you !

I've been making some cards and a mini- mini album , size about 7 by 8 cm .I'll start with the mini-mini :

A few things to embellish and for closure I used a jewel that I fastened with a brad . And a golden elastic I fastened to the back to go around the up standing part of the flower jewel.

These are the pages per two :

 Page 1 &2
Every page is made of a self made envelope on brown paper .I made a flap for the envelopes and inside each pocket there is a tag for holding pictures .
 Page 3 & 4
 Page 5 & 6
 Page 7 & 8

 page 9 & 10
 A trifold insert page , bound together with a ribbon

Page 11 & 12

 Page 13 & 14

The last page .
It has become kind of a carousel :

One of the tags inside the pockets

And here are a couple of cards I 've made :

I used twine , lace ,  a piece of fabric , cut out some small teapots ,added a few flowers and brads

A tag  to express my thanks

This is the inside of the card .

Actually it was a mistake ! I cut this jarr and with embellishing I saw this was a card stock that was already printed on ...... but I found it quite suitable and so I colourded it , it was an unexpected extra ,and my friend was delighted !

 Two fall cards :  Made In 3D

 I had about 4 kilo of apples on my small apple tree this year , it lead me to making this card

And a  baby card :
I used a digital stamp and coloured it

And a couple of butterfly cards : This first one I sewed ,

I'm not very good at embroidering and I did not have a guide , only a picture I got from somewhere on the Internet . It kept me busy for about two hours !

  For this card I used a cutout butterfly , and I stamped the flowers and the leaves . Used three pearls ,one for each flower .And some stones for the butterfly .

 The text I stamped is in Dutch , it says : Because you are very special.

Please know that you all are special , to someone  , To your family if you have any , to your friends ,  but  also to our creator ! We can put our cares in his hands as He loves us .

This is it for today , wish you all a nice Sunday afternoon , take care

Love, Rosa

  2. Hi again, Rosa. Just wanted to let you know that I tried to comment through my Google account, but it would not go through. There was no problem with posting as Anonymous, though.
