Back from Vacation, new members and a card!

I am back from my vacation in Germany! I had a great time there - as always. I go there once a year to visit friends and family, do some sightseeing and enjoy the outdoors.This year I visited the newly opened Egyptian Museum in Munich, which just had opened in June. The sculpture in front of the building is by Henk Visch, a Dutch artist. I choose this picture as my welcome picture for all my new members, which joined my blog during my absence! Welcome

I always get quite excited, when somebody new joins. Wow - I have 85 members right now. I would have never dreamed of that back in October, when I started this blog. You all make this really worthwhile! Thank you for joining and thank you for staying with me!

I also met one of my new blogging friends- Monika - originally from Indonesia, but now she lives in Munich. I brought some stamps over for her - they are much cheaper in the US, than in Germany. How lucky we are....Here you see the two of us having fun:

Monika made those wonderful cards for me and she also brought me a German stamp set - I am itching to ink it up!!!!

Thank you so much, Monika! I had a great time - we have to do this again next year if possible!


I will show some photos from Germany in a later blog post - I don't want to stretch your patience too much. I finally managed to make a card this afternoon. Since I have to work this weekend I only had time for a simple one layer card. 

I first stamped the sentiment and clear embossed it. I masked off the two "OO's" of the sentiment and sponged the polka dots over it, using a TCW template. The bird is from TAWS - Bird Brain, I colored it with Copics.

 The sentiment is from a Technique Tuesday stamp set - Big Thanks. I put Washi tape at the bottom. The wings of the bird are brown - I thought I mention that since we should use at least 3 of the colors in the palette....

I will be linking this card with:

This is the inspiration photo from House of Cards:
