Pumpkins and Welcome to New Members

This time I can welcome 3 new members to my blog!

Gaby - Erzibueglechen
Andrea (no blog)

I am happy you joined my blog! Hopefully you will stay and like what I create in the future! Monika and Gaby have beautiful blogs - go and visit them, if you have time - there is lots of ideas to find!! I have 2 welcome pictures for you. I thought they fit the season. The sculpture is called "Autumn". It is by Philip Haas and right now on exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.
He is an American artist, was born 1954 and he also is a screenwriter and filmmaker. He made 4 sculptures, called the four seasons - they are all there and quite impressive to look at!

                                                   He took the idea from Giuseppe Archimboldo (1526-1593) and created huge sculptures, whereas Archimboldo stayed in 2 dimensions.

Pretty similar - I guess its called CASEing.....
I hope you like your pictures!

Back to stamping...

I played around with pumpkins for the Impression Obsession challenge and the CASology challenge, I used an Impression Obsession stamp set called All Hallows Eve for the first card.

For the second card I used my Stampin up' set - Carved and Candlelit, mixed with a Hero Arts Halloween set.

I did some masking and sponging on both cards. Sponging is one of my favorite techniques and therefore the first card will go into the Impression Obsession challenge.

The second card I will send to Grayson. He already got a card from me, but he is such a sweet boy, so I'll send him a second one. You probably all know about Grayson by now - if not, click HERE and HERE

You can also send him a card and link up with Heather's blog - she is handing out a prize if you participate.

Hey liebe Cornelia,
vielen Dank für die freundliche Begrüßung!
Das ist mir ja noch nie passiert...

Von deinen beiden Karten gefällt mir die erste einen Ticken besser.

Hab einen schönen Sonntag!
Danke für den lieben Kommi, freut mich sehr.

Bis bald...
komm doch bald wieder virtuell vorbei gehüpft, ja?
Liebe Grüße

Hi, Cornelia! I am sorry I have neglected visiting your blog for awhile. It seems that life gets in the way and there's not enough time to spend blog-hopping.

Love your cards - the sponging is fabulous! Good luck in the IO challenge.
