Cat Postcard Swap

This is my first time in Swap-bot and the swap I attended is a Cat Postcard Swap coordinated by Ilona: The Missive Maven.

The other one of the cat cards to be sent I made by myself.
I used ink, water colour and some glitter glue.

Everyone has an opportunity to join another similar kind of a swap which Ilona is going to coordinate In cae you missed the first cat postcard swap...

Tea Package Inspiration

I drink a lot of tea, and nowadays I drink camomile tea in the evenings. The English camomile tea I use to buy is packed in such a nice package, which I always admire. Now I got an idea to use the opened package by glueing it on an envelope, and I like the result!
On the back side I glued some brown paper with a stamp and drawing, because I felt it also needed something, when the front side is so heavy because of the glued package.

Cat Stamps

There was last weekend a big handicraft trade fair in Tampere, Finland. I was there on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and didn't have time enough to see everything!

Among other things I bought this package of small clear stamps and a clear acrylic block to be able to use them.
- So finally I was able to get familiar with these unmounted clear stamps which I have been wondering in the Internet shops!

Beautiful Art Card from Japan

I got this beautiful art card today from Japan; thank you so much Miwa!

I got to know Miwa via Postcrossing in the beginning of 2008, and nowadays we are sending art cards to each others.

I like the old stamps she has used in this card.
