Almost Back..........

Hi Everyone,

I am coming out of hiding really soon. I still have some vision problems, but it is slowly getting better. Yesterday I had another check-up and I do not need any more procedures on my eye. I had 4 so far and it was NOT fun, definitely NOT......Thanks to that, I also learned, that I will not hold up to torture. I'll admit to anything, whatever it was or not, I'll confess. 

I want to thank all of you for your get well wishes, prayers and all those amazing, wonderful cards you sent me. Wow - I am so grateful for all the support and love you poured out to me. I am so touched. 

Since its all good news I want to share this card with you, that I made a LONG time ago and it got published in the October issue of Craft Stamper Magazine! The theme was Arabian nights. The technique is heat embossing on vellum and colored with Copics. The peony stamp is by Stampendous and the sentiment is by STAMPlorations. The inspiration of this card came from the wonderful Virginia Lu - thanks, Virginia!

Liebe Cornelia, ich denke so oft an dich und habe mir Sorgen gemacht! Habe deine Telefonnummer gefunden, die du mir mal geschickt hast und es mehrmal versucht, aber es klingelte nur. Konnte nicht einmal eine Nachricht hinterlassen!
So schön zu hören, dass du auf dem Weg der Besserung bist! Tolle Karte! Freue mich schon, wenn du wieder öfters posten kannst! Aber nur keinen Stress!
Es umarmt dich,

Allerliebste Cornelia,
ich bin ja soooo froh, dass es dir wieder besser geht. Ja, manchmal braucht man einen Schuss vor den Bug, um wieder etwas ehrfürchtiger zu werden und wahrzunehmen, dass Gesundheit nicht selbstverständlich ist. Allerdings muss es ja nicht so heftig kommen wie bei dir.
Nun gewöhn dir an (ich habe gut reden, mach es ja selber nicht!!!) etwas langsamer zu treten und auf dein Inneres, Dich zu hören.
Ich drücke dich ganz heftig und trinke zur Feier des Tages deiner Rückkehr ins Blogland einen Schluck (Tee, Wasser oder so) auf dein ganz persönliches Wohl.
Ganz ganz liebe Grüße

Well, it's good to know you'll reveal anything with a little torture. So, no secrets for you. Seriously though, so glad you're coming through this ordeal without permanent damage. Just want you to know, you've been missed a lot. Incidentally, that card is drop-dead gorgeous.

Bedazzled with your card, Cornelia! You've captured the images/colours of what comes to my mind when I think of Arabian Nights...utterly stunning! Congratulations on having this published...WOW!
Shona Chambers said…
Wow Cornelia, this fits the Arabian Nights theme perfectly. Its so dramatic and I love the colours with the gold. I hope all is going well with your procedures and your nearly finished with them all. I can't imagine what you've gone thru of late but can't wait for you to be 100% better again!!

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

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

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
