Cure for the Monday Blues and New member Welcome
What a nice start to 2015 - 4 new members to greet! Welcome Ladies - lets hope 2015 will be even better than 2014 for all of you!
Welcome to my little corner of blogland. Last year at this time I thought I would blog less than I did in 2013, but that has not happened. I am still thoroughly addicted to card making and I don't see it ending any time soon. It still thrills me to play in whatever challenge I feel drawn to - mostly getting inspired by their themes or pictures rather than sticking with a particular challenge that I always play in....I am still mainly CAS, although I sometimes experiment....but them always get back into CAS mode. So if you like that, stick around, that's how it going to be....
A warm welcome to (in the order of joining)
Wolle-Garn und Fadenzauber - Beatrice
All those ladies have fabulous blogs - go and check them out and leave them some love - perhaps you want to tell them I sent you;)
Glad to have you with me! And here is your welcome picture:
It is by the artist and textile designer Lian Tianmiao. I took this picture last April in the Denver Art Museum. It reminds me about snow - just right for this time of the year. Hope you like it!
And her is my card for the day :
I needed a card for one of my son's friends - he is turning 13 as you can see. A male teenager card - that is a challenge in itself..... I really liked the colors in Taheera's Cure for the Monday Blues challenge and thought they are perfect for a teenager....
I just had ordered some Simon Says goodies - among which was the arrow die cut. I think it is quite versatile and I am already have several things in mind to make with it. I first thought I die cut the colored arrows on colored paper, but then I changed me mind - what a waste and I just colored them with Copics....
The sentiment is by CASual Fridays and the numbers are Memory Box - had them forever, never used - and you know what that means - it going into Darnell's NBUS challenge ( (Never before used schtuff)....
I did not want the holes in the numbers, so I painstakingly fiddled them back in and secured them with tape....
I am also linking up with Simon Says Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday - Anything birthday, optional party
Stempelkueche - Alles Geht - anything goes
Happy Saturday and happy stamping!
