Making greeting cards for Easter


I decided to try some Easter themed cards...
The results are not bad, I think? 


My ink dried out, that's why the letters
are a little weird looking. *sigh*



I am still alive! And here is some mail to prove it...


It's been ages, and I am sorry.
But here is an update from some of the wonderful mail 
I received.

The first comes from Japan,
as a thank you for a swap!
I sent this lady some extras which matched 
her interest after checking her
postcrossing profile and she was so happy, 
she sent me these wonderful things. 



This letter comes from a new pen-friend from
Korea. Lately I am addicted to playing Tsum Tsum,
so the paper and stickers were an extra good choise. 



And last but not least, another new pen-friend from 
Japan sent me this. The package on the right
contained a rice cracker with shrimp flavor, 
it was delicious.

Some rare additions!


How lucky am I?! 
I can finally take Costa Rica AND Palau from my 
wanted list! 



Look at this beautiful card from 




I have also been spoiled by some of 
my Postcrossing friends! 
Two cards from a Postcrossing meeting,
plus very nice stamps




This stamp shows 
Crown Princess Elisabeth from Belgium
Issued 2016

Three pre-euro stamps, the one on the right is 
about the legend of St. Dimpna
and therefore related to my hometown Geel

Postcard party


This card comes from Bosnia and Herzegovina,
it wasn't send to me though, I got it as a souvenir,
isn't the bridge of Mostar pretty? 

This card comes from a Postcrossing meeting, 
never been to Garfunkels before...


This beauty is an official Postcrossing card,
I am so happy! 

And look at the cute stickers! 
It made me smile when I noticed the 
sender wrote the message in English,
while we are both Dutch speaking. I guess
it is a Postcrossing "disease". 


A Chinese official, I was holding it upside down first,
totally confused. When I figured out what was wrong,
I felt so silly.

I love this card from Finland
the fairy looks a bit mischievious though.
Forest mushrooms
set of 5, 2016

And more Postcrossing meeting cards!
This one came with special cancellations
from Malaysia



This card is so pretty! I love receiving 
churches from all over the world in my mailbox. 
This beauty comes from the Czech Republic
I couldn't find a decent English website about the
church, but I have found some information on 
the town Sumperk


This cute cat sticker is on the back 

And I got spoiled, the sender included a 
magnet from Praded


Although I don't really like ad cards, 
I liked finding this one in my mailbox.
It comes from a pen-friend in the UK to show
she was thinking of me. 

Great card made for the Postcrossing meeting 
in Deventer, the Netherlands


From a (pen-)friend in the Netherlands. 
The big circle has a 3D effect

The information I found about this card
was all in German, so I'll keep it simple:
This is the Abbey church Maria, St. Petrus & Paulus
in the abbey Ilbenstadt, Germany

Who doesn't like postcards in the mail


I managed to be sick for 14 days, 
the first envelope/card arrived in my 
mailbox to cheer me up. 
I love how the sweet sender turned the envelope
in a "postcard' too. And not just once, she did
it before too... just look at the second one below!





Isn't this little duck cute? I got spoiled with 
an amazing fairy card as well!



I managed to get this card through the
Postcrossing forum, the Studio Ghibli - Wishlist tag. 
I just love the Ghibli movies

I also got these two cards, both from postcrossing 
meetings! I even got the first card twice, I know so 
many kind people!
