Warm mittens

I am back with a card I made for my sister. Don't know if she has received it yet but some of the challenges I made it for are closing soon! 

My sister is an amazing knitter! She has knitted all kinds of complicated things for all kinds of different people. For Christmas she bought me some yarn (I got to choose) and helped me make a hat! Isn't she the sweetest?
So I thought these new-to-me stamps and dies would be perfect for her. Since the yarn I picked for my hat was grey and off-white I chose those colors for the card. Then, so it wouldn't look too blah, I added some blue accents. 

Stamps: MFT (background on card), Impression Obsession (background on mittens), Winnie & Walter (sentiment)
Dies: MFT (mittens)

I think the card is pretty clean & simple but if the DT disagrees it's without topping

Mice in Love x 2

Sorry that it took me so long to post some new cards! Besides trying to catch up with everything here at home I have been creating. Some cards I can't post yet because I haven't heard that they have been received... Seems like the post offices are also still trying to catch up after the holiday rush.

The call for "Brads" over at Use Your Stuff had me look through my stash and find those heart shaped ones. The stamp is from one of the sets I won from Virginia. I stamped it twice, colored it, and then made two similar but different cards with it. I didn't add any sentiment as the image speaks loud enough, I think.

Stamp: Penny Black
Other: Stencil (Memory Box), Brad (Gary M. Burlin), Glitter paper (DCWV), Faber-Castell Polychromos


The Card Concept #46 (ETA: Winner!!)
Clean & Layered
Inspired by the heart and the colors

Stamp: Penny Black
Other: Stencil (SSS), Embossing folder (Sizzix), Brads (Recollection), Glitter paper (DCWV), Faber-Castell Polychromos

Happy New Year!

Hello friends!

Happy New Year! I know, 2016 is not that new anymore but since this is my first post this year I wanted to wish you a happy, healthy New Year with lots of time to create!

I hope your holidays were enjoyable. We spent them in Germany with my family and it was wonderful! We hadn't been there for Christmas in 11 years and among other things I wanted to show my kids some of the "Christkindlmärkte" (outdoor Christmas markets). My pictures are not the greatest but just to give you an idea:

(My hometown projects images onto the facades of buildings downtown)

Now first some administrative stuff:

You might have already seen it on other blogs that here will be some changes with Blogger:

Effective January 11, 2016 only Google account holders will be able to follow blogs with Blogger. In addition, Blogger will also remove any followers without a Google account from the blogs they are following. For the full announcement from Google click here.

I definitely don't want to loose any of my dear followers! So if you are reading my blog via Google Friend Connect you have the following options:

  • You can create a Google Account.  Then you would need to become a Follower again because all previous Followers who did not have an account will be permanently removed from my Follower lists by Google.
  • If you choose not to open a Google account, you can still follow my blog via email, bloglovin, or feedly.

And now I would like to do a review of my favorite cards that I posted last year. This year I did not pick one per month but my favorites of all so sometimes there are several in one month and other months are missing. If you want to go to the original blog post click on the dates underneath the photo.

Boy, that was hard. Could have included several more...
If you are interested check out a similar post from last year by clicking here.

I am linking up over at Lyndal Higgins blog.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart if you stuck with me till the end!
Hope to post some new creations soon and that you'll be back!
