Mosquito and So Suzy

Hi Everyone,

So Suzy came out with that hilarious snarky sentiment and I just had to have it!!! 
It just makes me laugh!

Now this card is really simple. I took and old circle mask that I made myself a long time ago and picked one in a size that I liked and partially sponged two half circles with Distress ink.

Stamped the sentiment over it. You could stamp the sentiment first, but there maybe some smearing and smudging of the ink when you sponge over it, so that is a lot safer.

Used my stamp positioner to line up the mosquitos where I wanted them to be

Colored them in and added black splatters. I cut off a strip at the bottom and added PP for more interest.

Do you like snarky, too? So Suzy has a nice selection of them!

Nein nein, bei uns gibt es keine Mosquitos!!! ... nur Mücken ... *kicher*
Und auf so eine Kartenidee kannst nur Du kommen, alle anderen wählen ein niedliches oder hübsches Tier und Du greifst beherzt zu den Plagegeistern.
Aber untereinander scheinen sie sich richtig zu mögen.
Was für eine großartige Idee! Dieser Humor gefällt mir! :))))
Und so genial umgesetzt. Ob sie wohl zugestochen haben? ;)
Liebe Grüße

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

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

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?
