For Susanne

Hi Everyone,

I am sure a lot of you know Susanne from Keep in Touch - she is one of my old blogging friends. She recently injured her thumb (including tendon and nerv) and has to undergo surgery. She won't be able to make a card any time soon and I thought I'll cheer her up with a card:

I kept it one layer - first I water colored the background. Then I used my brand new Misti to ink up the background stamp - did some multi-tone stamping here, does not really show in the picture. Added the sentiment. Since it did not show well I traced it with a white Sharpie. Heat embossed the Ladybugs and added a generous amount of Stickles. I really love that background stamp - I have not used it in ages.......

My inspiration for this card came from my friend Gundi from Papierelle, who is celebration her 3rd year of blogging and has posted this sweet picture for us to play along with her:

A blog named Hero - One layer card - all supplies by Hero Arts
Throwback Thursday Challenge - use an old or retired stamp  -all of those are pretty old....the background stamp is at least 5 yrs old, the sentiment at least 8yrs
Pink Elephant challenge - Anything goes

So, if you would like to send Susanne a card, let me know (neliacards at gmail dot com) - I can give you her address.

Happy Stamping!

Wie süß diese Marienkäferkarte!!!
Eine ähnliche habe ich gerade vor zwei Tagen bekommen mit dem Spruch:
"Achtung! Hier kommt ein Glückskäfer mit Sofortwirkung"
Meine zeigte Sofortwirkung und ich bin sicher, dass deine das auch kann.
Liebe Grüße,

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
