A Post-X-mas Post

Gladly the sun has come back to Vienna and this gave me the opportunity to finally take good pictures of the lovely X-mas cards and tags I received this winter.

As some of you might know I struggled with some health problems shortly before Christmas, which took me down, so I was not really good at commenting or making and sending a lot of Chritsmas cards myself. So sorry for that! I am sure I will find a way to return the joy your cards brought to me. Anyway - thank you all so much for thinking of me and creating these awesome X-mas treasures for me :)

This beautiful card is from Astrid

This lovely tag is from Barbara

And this tag came from my dear friend Sandra
(remember that awesome parcel she sent me?) 

Anne created the most lovely ice-skates card for me

and Alison surprised me with this gorgeous tag

I also received a lot of enchanting electronic X-mas cards from many dear crafting friends! Thank you all so much! You really brought some big (urgently needed) smiles to my face.

I also received a terrific surprise parcel from Brigitte (coutureuse). Oh dear - she really sent me a true treasure chest so to say. ;) Thank you so much, Brigitte - seems you know exactly what my crafty heart is longing for ;). 

Brigitte not only sent me a lot of awesome crafting goodies but also some of her admirable artwork. I couldn't stop "wow-ing" when I unwrapped one lovely piece after another. 

Look at this terrific altered book

and the gorgeous mini accordion booklet:

not to forget about this awesome altered puzzle piece:

and even more - this beautiful chunky sits on my writing desk:

Behing it sits "Edgar, the Owl" - my personal "trophy" from my one and only Advent market some years ago where I sold almost all of my selfmade wire and beads jewelry. And to the right another tag of lovely Sandra

You see - I am the most lucky person in the world - having such a bunch of highly talented friends out there! Thank you all so much! You are awesome! 

Big hugs to all of you,
Claudia xxx
