Summer time

Hello! I have been away to Spain for a retreat with my family and have had my son, daughter-in-law and grand daughter to stay. So no card-making for me in what it seems like ages.

Yesterday was the beginning of Summer and at the same time it was Seréna's birthday. Luckily we got on together just fine, I had some great 'Oma' time with her.

This is how I will remember her. Today they have gone back home so I will really miss her.

To share a card I have chosen a grid card for a change.
Hope you are having lovely Summer weather!

Tomorrow is a new day

When I first saw this bird stamp from Wplus9 I thought about paper piecing it.

I used some patterns that Sue had sent to me a while ago.

 This is my second card, painting with distress inks.

I'm all excited because I will be seeing my grand daughter this weekend. I haven't seen her in six months! My son and daughter in law will be staying with us until after her birthday on June 21st; Seréna is walking already.  We are having a family reunion. I hope to show some photos.

Thank you for your visit!

Stamplorations - Casing Virginia Lu's card

I'm into card-making this last week - all of a sudden I feel like making cards again! So I'm posting a card which uses totally different techniques than I am used too, as I'm casing a most beautiful Wedding Card that Virginia Lu made. Honestly, as soon as I saw it, I pinned it - it has something very special about it.

It is for the above challenge, which can be found here.

So here are the two cards together. Not to be mistaken, the card on the left is Virginia's!

I used vellum and gold embossed the Hero Arts flowers and then colored in with distress markers. I used some string behind the sentiment and some sequins.

Thanks Virginia for the inspiration you give to the crafting world!
