It has been a while that I have several new members on my blog, but did not manage to find the time for an adequate greeting picture. Finally that time has come and I want to welcome

Great to have you here! I actually did not quite realize I have that many new member, because old one have been defecting by equal numbers and my overall membership has been stable! Yeahh! After all, it could be declining! So extra thanks for joining and old members - I am so impressed you are still here with me. Visit my newbies and leave them some love - they all have quite wonderful blogs! I do appreciate every one of my members, even if I don't have enough time to comment on all your wonderful card, I wish I did...
So here is my welcome picture for you:
Those portraits are by Jaume Plensa, a Spanish sculptor. Those heads are right now exhibited in the Millennium Park in Chicago, where I admired them and took this picture. I hope you like them too. although a picture does not quite do them justice, they are quite impressive!
Enough real art - back to card making:
I made this for this week's Muse challenge, where the Marion inspires us with a really cute card:
So here is my CASE on it:
Kind of took it literally - instead of the cat sitting in a box I have a hippo breaking through a wall....
Colored it with Copics. The hole in the wall is by Stampendous, all other stamps are by Paper Smooches.
And as you can see - I made too many Christmas cards in the past, although I was considering putting a Santa Hat on the hippo and have him shout out Merry Christmas....I like the party hat better - gave me better color choices:
Have a great day and happy stamping!
