Oh, how wonderful our vacation was! 11 days of continuous sunshine within 14 days of vacation!
I´m not sure if it was true or if I was dreaming: I lay out in the sunshine with only my bathing clothes on! In February!
Usually I´m kind of sad, when vacation is over because deep in my heart I´m a traveller… but this time it´s better… not only that we had the most beautiful time in Croatia – I was also able to meet the gorgeous Nina B. from “Crafting in Croatia”! She is a fabuluous crafter and designer! You can see her work here http://ninabdesigns.blogspot.com/
Because of the fact that she parted from some older Papertrey Ink stamp sets, I was lucky to buy 3 PTI sets – GREAT! Sadly PTI has high shipping costs to Europe, so I didn´t buy me some until now, although I adore their beautiful sets. But now I have at least 3 older ones – and so I´m able to participate in their challenges – yay!!!
I feel very, very relaxed and even though it´s snowing outside :-( I feel happy!
(You´ve to know that in my opinion Austria is positioned on an absolutely wrong degree of latitude!)
So I want to start this week ( a little late) by sharing 2 cards I made last year – in fact my personal favourites of 2010:
“Sadly” they´re not in my possession any more, but I kow that they´re in appreciative hands .
The fabric is a scrap I rescued from the trash bin in a millinery store (or how do you call the stores where you buy fabric by yard/meter?) – the rest of the card is digitally created and printed.
Oh, I forgot the pearl – last year I loved strolling through some Viennese flea markets – I bought some old fashion-pearl-jewelery and cut it up (barbaric!) – so the middle of my fabric flowers is a shiny pearl.
I hope you enjoy the following cards – thanks for stopping by!
PS: “Danke” is German for “Thank you”
I´ll link them up to:
