a wonderful color – challenge

Greetings from my wonderful, relaxing spa – weekend .. I’m having a wonderful time doing absolutely nothing 😀

I love peonies and Persian buttercups so this inspirational photo/color challenge is perfect for me

even though I did not use a flower stamp simple to peonies, I used a flower stamp 🙂 I’ve been obsessed with flowers lately but I guess that’s because Stampin‘ Up! produces so many wonderful sets – I’m in heaven 🙂

If you want to use this colors as well, make sure you hop over to the Creative Friday Blog and enter your creation 🙂 you’ve got 2 weeks 🙂

Happy Weekend

Wellness in der Tüte

Mother’s Day is on May 10th – maybe spa in a bag? Create a cute little bag, but some chocolates, candles, tea and bath beads in there and you’re to go 🙂
you may wonder why my bag is so wrinkly – I used the packing paper Stampin‘ Up! used to fill up their boxes – I hope it comes back – I like it so much better than the stupid plastic they use now.

Sweet Stampin Challenge: anything but a card

sunny card :)

I love the color yellow 
Not every shade of yellow of course, my favorite is a nice, bold sunflower yellow, almost orange but still yellow – just like Crushed Curry by Stampin‘ Up! I couldn’t resist making a card with just this one color 🙂 I love how it turned out, so simple, so cas, but I still like it 😉
I adore the flower which I stamped with Versamark and embossed it with white powder – then I colored it with watercolors and that is it 🙂
I made it for the current Creative Friday challenge where we’d love to see 2 ribbon 😉 easy peasy, right? Hop over and play along 🙂
