Stash of new cards



The set of ATCs on the left are for a swap I signed up to only yesterday. Now that's a 1st for me as I'm usually last minute with making swaps. The theme was open but the ATCs had to include a postage stamp, so I used the quote stamp, which I love, "If my words had wings they would fly to you each day" and it linked up nicely to the butterflies on the postage stamps. Now I just need to brave the elements and get out to post them!
Another day housebound but I'm not complaining as I have been very productive making a stash of cards. I really need to catch up with posting out some RAKs and Birthday cards to my friends in my groups so these will be so handy. I made good use of the stamped backgrounds I made in December whilst on holiday in France.
DH bought me the flowers when he slid his way to the doctor's earlier in the week and they are compliment the colours in the cards. Orange Gerberas, Purple Anenomes, Tulips and green Button  Chrysanths. It almost looks like it's my birthday!  We may be down to 3 toilet rolls in this house but we do have lovely flowers!

You've been very creative, love the sentiment. so there are some compensations to being snowed in!

Love your cards. I wish I could be as organised as to make a stash ready to send people.
