Goodbye Tension

Hi Everyone,

one of my favorite clerks at work is retiring and you know what that means - I needed a card for her.
That flamingo from Your Next Stamp is  my favorite for that. I just love his expression.

I used the colors and ind of the sketch from YNS current challenge to get me started. Used an embossing folder as background and colored with water brush pens. Added some sequins.
I love that hilarious sentiment. Can't wait for my own retirement...

Happy Stamping!

Deine Arbeitskollegin wird sicherlich sehr erfreut sein über dieses tolle Kärtchen.
Der Flamingo sieht schon heftig unternehmungslustig aus - ob sie oder er das ebenso sieht???
Dein Blog hat ja wieder ein neues Outfit bekommen: sieht gut aus.
Komm gut ins Neue Jahr,
ganz liebe Grüße, Flo

Don't know how you continue to come up with these splendiferous cards. Just another example of your design genius and sense of humor. This flamingo looks like he/she can't wait to leave that job behind. So cute and funny.
A darling card and so well designed and colored too. I am sure your friend will love it.

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
