Birds and Bees .... goes on

I had already finished some ATC's for the magazine "ATC Quarterly" but I received a new set of stamps with a bee the other week, so I created another one. 

This is also my entry for the challenge at FwA: "Use one stamp twice" or "Take one rubber stamp and create at least two different ATCs."

*Hello Kitty*

The theme this week at Fun with ATC's is .... *HELLO KITTY*. I am not a friend of this specific cat, even though I love cats more than anything as you all might already know. 

So I think I found a compromise for that problem.

This is my ATC

"Geflügelte Worte"

ABC Stempeln bei Fun with ATC's - Letter "G" - wie Geflügel!

Leider habe ich keinen Geflügelstempel, aber ein "Geflügeltes Wort" ist mir eingefallen *grins*

April Sketch at MSW

So sorry Stella and Ira! I had to remove the post, and herewith your lovely comments, as the chief hadn't released it yet and I was kind of carried away with the date and posted it early :(

So, here it is again, our April sketch at MSW!

I created a card using Lucy's wonderful sketch

Have a good start into the new week!

She has so much more to learn ....

..... says it all

My first creation at Christy Tomlinson's workshop.
The canvas has the size of 10 x 7".

Poor girl, he should file a complaint against her hairdresser and start a diet first thing tomorrow morning!

*MYSTERY* at Fun with ATC's

I needed to sleep over that ...

... and still I don't think I hit the theme :(

The BG is glimmer misted and I printed something *technically* from the net on it. The image from Lisas Altered Art, the sentiment is computer generated and the birds are a Tim Holtz stamp.

This is Challenge #33 at Fun with ATC's!

*Showers* at the Paper Variety

For the challenge at The Paper Variety I created an ATC with an American Art stamp. I coloured the image with chalk. I misted the BG and stamped it with an older splatter stamp.

The sentiment is from Lisa's altered arts.

Cheer up!

The theme *Cheer Up* came just right this week at the City Crafters Challenge Blog. I always need a card for a sick friend or someone who just doesn't feel well.

The sentiment says: *Get well!* and the beautiful image is a digital freebie from Magic Moonlight.

I stamped on sticky canvas and just added some little roses and the lace. I used my EK punch *Stamps* for the matting of the image.
*Up and Going* was all that was needed for a *Get Well* card.

Rain .... measured in feet

I took the pictures last year in August! 

A pretty day and all of a sudden dark clouds and buckets of rain pouring down. The drops killed most of our hibiscus flowers. The close up shows all the disaster!

I entered this LO into a challenge at MSW. Ginni asked us to create something with rain showers, baby showers, bridal showers .... etc.

Thanks for looking! Sunny Sunday to you all!

Celebrate the good times

This week at the City Crafters Challenge Blog we use banners, I created an Easter card:

One of my favorite bird stamps by Inkadinkado.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous sunny weekend!


Since I do not have any stamps that would fit the theme, I decided to work with a die.

Ok, I know I kind of got carried away, but honest, have ALL sprockets been metal and black?

And do we really know if men didn't wear womens hats?

This is my entry for the challenge at FwA
