Before I get to today's card I want to say HELLO and WELCOME to my two new members
Both have fantastic blogs that I have linked, feel free to check them out!
All my new members get a welcome picture - usually some piece of art I really like and hope you enjoy it, too. This picture I took in the NY City subway. The 14th Street/8th Ave station is full of delightful little sculptures by Tom Otterness. Here two workers are cleaning old subway tokens from the walkway. You really have to pay attention to see them - they are quite small.
I also want to thank everybody who continues to visit my little blog and leaves me comments. It is so uplifting to read them and they motivate me making cards. You make my day!
Yesterday it was gorgeous - sunny and pleasant. I had the day off work and took the change to go skiing - probably the last time this very short season. Today its dreadful outside - wet, cold, drizzling rain - in one word YUCK! What could be better than spending time in my craft room.....
At CASology this week's theme is "flames" and at Addicted to CAS the theme is masculine cards. I decided to combine those into one card. And since all good things are three as we say in Germany (Aller guten Dinge sind drei) I am playing in the KIS challenge as well - the theme is paper piecing.
Just saw that the theme at Less is More is also paper piecing. I can't resist, I'll link this card up there as well.
Update: Obviously I can't read - as Chrissie pointed out its paper piercing, not paper piecing! That little R makes all the difference....Well, its too late, can't retract from the challenge, but they can throw it out!
The car stamp is amuse. I stamped it, clear embossed it and colored it with Copics. I fuzzy cut it and mounted it on foam cushion. The sentiment is Hero Arts - Four Bold Messages (Cl226), which I masked. the flames I sponged, using part of a TCW stencil.
