Happy Mail received and cards sent

Hi you all, hope those of you in the cold parts of this world are managing to keep warm. Here in Germany and the whole of Europe we are still in the grip of an icy winter. It was definitely warmer at Christmas than it is now! But I am not dreaming of a white Easter, so hope very much that it will get warmer.

I received 2 beautiful Easter cards from Donna and Yvonne.
The first one is from Donna, I love her very determined looking Easter bunny on his way to school! And the lovely rabbit charm on the card. Donna paints wonderful pictures, and if you haven't already visited her blog, please do so!

The second card is from Yvonne, who makes beautiful cards, mostly in vintage style, also well worth a visit if you don't know her blog yet! I love all the layers and delicate colours in this card.

Big thanks to both these lovely ladies!

And I have 2 cards which I have already sent off. The challenge over at  Vienna Impressions blog is to create a card using blue and green and an unusual shape. I have made 2 pyramid cards. The cards can be folded flat to send, and their is a sentiment inside. I stamped 'Gib jedemTag die Gelegenheit der schönste Deines Lebens zu werden' in each card. (Give every day the opportunity to become the best one of your life).
The first card has been made using double sided cardstock. After adding motives on the green and blue sides, I varnished the outside surfaces with clear glaze.

The second card has been made from a sheet of paper painted with green and blue, and stamped randomly with various background stamps. The outside surfaces have once again been glazed. All stamps used are from LaBlanche. The photos of the inside and the other sides have somehow disappeared from my computer, and as they are now winging their way to their destinations, I can't take any more pics, sorry!

That's all for today, take care, have a good day, and thanks a lot for visiting!
