Welcome to 3 New Members and a Card
I just can't believe it - 3 more members - who knows - perhaps I make it to 100 by my 1 year blog anniversary, which is coming up at the end of next month! I am planning a little celebration, but for now I am going to celebrate 3 NEW MEMBERS!!!
I welcome all of you to my little blog and hope you will continue to like what I make. Here is your welcome picture:
It it by Fritz Koenig - the artist who created the Sphere at the World Trade Center, which got so badly damaged on 9/11. He is German and actually lives near my hometown. This is one of his sculptures in front of his Sculpture Museum in Landshut (my home town), which is housed in the restored old City Wall.
Back to card making.....A while back I discovered Lavinia stamps - they are from the UK and you can't buy them here. The currency exchange for the British pound is not exactly favorable, but eventually I could not resist and ordered a whole bunch of their stamps. At least they have a decent shipping rate....
I sponged the background - all stamps are from Lavinia. I did some generational stamping to add some depth. No sentiment, as you are only allowed Lavinia stamps and nothing else.... I will add this card to their current challenge - add a flower.
I wish you all a great weekend and thanks for stepping by!
