Hello friends,

It is now late Sunday afternoon, I hope you had a nice weekend !

I am sad,  because again someone who was dear to me has passed away . Another widow going to have a rough time . They were such a warmhearted couple , always together .

My title wintertime has nothing to do with the weather here in Belgium at the moment . Which I am not mad about because I hate winter and snow .

but I do have some more winter cards to share :

This is a tag pocket card

I have hand stitched the sides of the little white embossed  tag holder .

This next one is made  of a bought precut paper die , which you have to wind all around with fine Madeira thread . In the middle I placed my snowmen and further embellished my card with punched out snowflakes .

This card is made using different layers of background , one made with a round die cut punch .

 Some twine around the topper , a single flower with small red brad .

 For the next card I hand cut a tag shape in patterned paper which I embellished with glitter glue here and there and then applied the  the 3D cutting file with a lace flower with two very old buttons on the left and a small heart on the right .

 I also used an old button to make my tag "hanging".

And this is again a shape winded with fine Madeira thread ,

a 3 D cutting file , very delicate cutting !

 a prima rose and some leaves ,
 Detail of the flower ,
 and a small envelope with card .Some ribbon to the finishing touch and two gold sticker borders .
 A small gold paper punched flower with button inside the cutout star.

And here you can see the multicoloured Madeira thread .

So this is it for today, I hope you all have a nice week , happy crafting and take care ,

Hugs, Rosa


  1. My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your friend, Rosa. It's never easy when friends pass on, but it seems especially hard during the holiday season.

    On a happier note, I love the little details on this batch of cards. That small lace flower is precious!

  2. These are wonderful cards Rosa! How clever of you to incorporate the decorative thread. I love that idea! Beautiful...

    My prayers with you and the family of your dear friend.
