Day 10! In case you missed it; It’s that time again, A-Z Challenge season! This month I am keeping things simple; sharing makes past and present, as well as a few I’ll try to create just for the challenge! Today I am sharing some sweet Just Because cards, ideal for happy mail!
Each post I will try to share around five or six pics of handmade cards; using different styles, methods and elements. For an added challenge, I will be working entirely from my craft stash! (I do have a ridiculous amount of papers, embelishments and what not to use!)
The April A-Z Challenge
What is it all about? Basically posting every day throughout April, except Sundays. Following the alphabet, whether keeping to a theme or otherwise. It’s a great challenge, and one of my favourite parts is meeting other bloggers!

An A-Z of Handmade Cards
This year for MY April A-Z Challenge; I have chosen a running theme of handmade cards. Although I make cards for every occasion, it is rare these days, for me to actually share them! So throughout April I will be sharing cards I have made, to both share, and perhaps inspire others to give card making a try! I will endeavour to use a variety of creative methods, covering many every-day events.
Just Because Cards
I always like to keep a stash of just because cards. You never know when you want to send something to someone, or perhaps they just pop into your head and you want to drop them a note!
I still love a bit of snail mail, it just feels a little more personal than sending a message or an email online.
The joy of just because cards, is that anything goes! It’s a great opportunity to play around with different papers, cardstock and embelishments!
Half the fun of sending happy mail, is adding little bits and pieces too, you could even incorporate them into a card, instead of just sending them along…
If you’d like to exchange happy mail, or if you like any of the cards seen in the challenge; I may well have some or be able to recreate them. Drop me a message or email me! (Socials below, and email can be found in the contact tab).
