Birthday card and Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!



One of my former German Au Pairs' son is celebrating his fourth birthday! She took care of my daughter when she was four and now she has 3 children of her own - the last two are twins. We have been staying in contact ever since she was with us, so naturally her son is getting a card!



Except for the sentiment, which is from Papertrey I used all German stamps. The mouse and the elephant are from a famous TV show and the middle one is from probably the most well known German children's book author named Janosch. His books have been translated into English and some are available in the US. I always was and still am a big fan of his drawings. 


For the windows I used the Papertrey Take Tree die, the balloon is a Marvy punch. I colored the stamps after I fuzzy cut them with pencils, the eyes are done with white enamel.


And if you want to know more about THE MOUSE you can watch this short video clip:

Have FUN!



                                                       


I wish all of you mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day - enjoy! I will be in Vermont, so no posts from me over the weekend.....

Thank  you all for your lovely comments - as always they are very much appreciated and treasured!

Love the windows idea! I'm not into children's card (as I don't have any I don't "feel" this type of cards). But this one I really like.

Ja, du sieht richtig, ich bin es wirklich und wahrhaftig!!
Jetzt setze ich mich einfach hin und schau mal wie weit ich es schaffe...

Die Sendung mit der Maus, was für eine geniale Idee! Über diese tolle Karte wird sich das Geburtstagskind bestimmt sehr freuen!

What an adorable and well-made card.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm afraid I'm not as blog-smart as I'd like to be. The only way to follow me is in a reader. You'll find the way to do that in the uppermost left-hand side of my blog. It's the first thing in that column and says, "Follow me in a Reader".
Unfortunatley, the Google reader is not going to be functioning after July, so I hope you can pick an alternate if you'd like. I'm just returning to blogland and in the few short months I've been gone it seems to have undergone quite a few changes. I will try to find another way to allow those who so graciously visit my blog to follow me.
