Friends... continuation

Thanks a lot for all your very nice comments on my "friends" card !! I enjoyed reading them very much!!

Today I´ve a little continuation ... I gave this card to my sister-in-law, who is a very sweet person! 
I added some facial care sachets and wondered what kind of envelope I should make... I decided to take a simple paperbag for snacks as base and stamped some vintage style stamps by Prima on it:

Then I put my card and treats inside and closed it ...

With today´s card ....


....I´d like to participate in 3 fabulous challenges:

Hero Arts´ February 2012 Contest 
stamp sets: "Canvas Stripes", "Flower Lady" by Hero Arts


A Passion for Papertrey - Stripes
stamp sets: "Postmarks", "Botanical Silhouettes" by Papertrey Ink

This pretty tissue paper rose was a handmade gift from LINDA - THANK YOU again! 

Last week I ordered 2 "handmade/created by" stamps, because I wanted such stamps for a long time time now. Believe it or not - 2 days later I flipped through my (very) old "stamp stash" and found this stamp - I love it - and did not know, that I had it! It was part of a stamp set, so perhaps that´s the reason I did not pay any particular attention to it. 

("Handgemacht von" is German for "handmade by")

So hear my advice: go through your old stash from time to time!!

Thanks for visiting me today! Have a fabulous new week!

Bon Appétit

Even though I´m not good at using sketches I tried my hands on this weeks Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge... I ´m on diet right now but  had a piece of very yummy marzipan - filled with plum jam and covered with chocolate - on my desk. I thought the best way to get rid of it, is NOT to eat it, but to use it for a card I´ll need on Saturday for friends...

I used the WMS Vintage Labels 18 stamp set which matches perfectly with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eighteen and the WMS Victorian Frippery stamp set - both are gorgeous!

See the sweet treat?

This is the WMS sketch

Thanks for stopping by today!

Just a quick post to be in time for the Papertrey Ink Challenge Day 9:


(Sentiment =PTI)

This card reminded me a little bit of our favourite café located in the ancient inner city of Zadar in Croatia: hubby and I love to sit outside in the sun and read an exciting book or a magazine … it´s very pretty inside, too (LOVE the red chandelier!), but the icing on the cake is the very old inner part of the house…

Thanks for visiting – have a nice day!

Blog Hop!

Welcome everybody to this blog hop for a precious friend!

She lost one of her fur-babies last week and we wanted to let her know we are thinking of her!

It´s dedicated to you, DORCAS!

If you came from Yenni´s blog, you came to the right place. (If anyone gets lost along the way or has started in the middle, you may want to go to our blog hop host STACEY and start from the beginning.)

Dorcas, I made a sticky note booklet for you and I hope it cheers you up a little…

I know, that you are not sooo fond of much bling and sparkle, so I went with a more decent botanical theme… I hope you like it !

It´s yours and will be in your post box in (hopefully) about 2 or 3 weeks.

So, now it´s Jen´s turn. Please check out her lovely project! :-)

A big hug to you Dorcas and thanks everybody for hopping along with us!

Leafy Minicards

Hi all!

How are you? It´s bitterly cold here in Austria and I´m frreeeezzzing!!! So, I´m longing for spring!

According to my longing I´d like to share 2 vernal mini cards today:

Ok, I know, these were only a matter of minutes and they are no spectacular piece of arts ... but ... let me tell you the story behind : I bought a perfume with a really nice fragrance in Italy last year ... so far, so good... but .... let me show you the packaging:

It was so pretty on both sides, that I knew for sure that I would make something with it from the moment I bought it :-) And - as always - I couldn´t resist to use some glitter to sparkle it up :-)

I´d like to participate in the Crafty Cardmakers´Challenge  with these.

Thanks for looking!
