Some of the postcards I finished and sent away to different countries.

It was very nice and exciting to send and then receive these postcards - like in the "old" days...
Next year I will join the swap again. For further information, pls, check iHannas blog.

SDC 286 Nature


The latest challenge at Stampotique is all about nature.

I made this picture thinking about the beautiful leaves falling this time of the year. I also thought about friendship and how important it is to spend qualitity time together. The days get shorter, colder and darker and I love this cosy time with my friends when we all have to get closer to keep warm...

I used my beloved Stampotique stamps;

1. Magda`s reindeer
2. Magda`s Mr Owl
3. Penney-Torrente`s Dog Cube
4. Penney-Torrente`s Two Sticks

... and a clear stamp from WOW, called Flights of fancy .

Happy autumn to you all!

SDC 283 anything but a card


Yesterday Luxemburg celebrated fathers day.
For me, that meant creating something cute and useful with the children at work.
We ended up making parking disks in the shape of a car.

At home i made my own parking disk, using my beloved Stampotique stamps;

1. Heads
2. Clover
3.  French journal page

I made it like a tag - I cut out the P , the picture wheel and the arrow with my cuttlebug ( borrowing DIE`s from dear Katherine ).

The eyes in the heads were colored and later filled with Glossy Accents to get that staring effect.

So, this is my entry to the latest challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenge 283, where the theme is "anything but a card".

SDC281 - background love


Last week Stampotique Designers Challenge asked for backgrounds and here is my take on the theme.

 My favorite background stamp right now is the "French journal page" by France Papillon. I just love the clean lines.
I also added some washi tape to underline poor  Twinkie `s struggle as Daniels  tree hopper goes crazy in the back..

Not a lot of colors this time , just the way I like it right now...

scrapping time



Long time, no time for fun in my "scrap office". But today - here I am - listening to Amy Winehouse, Christina Perry and Moulin Rouge...  So singing along and scrapping at the same time , I had a lovely Sunday afternoon inside.


Hugs!

A Journal page


A life with ups and downs. Borderline Syndrom makes the peaks higher and the valleys lower. And we all just wish her the best, without understanding how that little mind of her works...

" ...and sometimes I am that person clapping my hands and singing, and sometimes that person on my knees..."

Background a la Trish Latimer - a LOT of colors, stamps and rub-ons. The little angel is from "l`encre et l`image".

This journal page is my entry to the challenge at Simon says stamp where the theme this week is "anything goes".
