home is where your heart is

when a dear friend of mine – I met her when she was “a little girl”, and now she’s all grown up exploring the world – asked me to make a card for her, as a thank you for her family for all their support, I was super happy 🙂  she’s currently in London but her heart is still where it belongs –  at home in Austria 🙂 Merry Christmas, Nora :*

Bastel-Traum Christmas .. just a couple of weeks left

🙂 I’m in Christmas mood — two days ago it snowed and it’s really cold now .. – not, that I hate snow or the cold, well, I prefer Indian Summer but still, snow is nice and the winter too .. I just despise icy roads and snow storms (if I’m not at home 😛 )

oh well, because the snow put me into such a Christmas mood I grabbed my Doodle Bug Northpole Papers and started crafting — for the very first time I used my Jane’s Doodles stamps which I love — I think the jar is so versatile and awesome  also, this card is a card-lift from Natasha over at Jane’s Doodles — I just loved it so much :)))

Also, over at Bastel-Traum we would love to see your wonderful holiday creations – please hop over and play along 🙂

it’s a boy

it’s a booooyyy 🙂 .. a dear friend of mine asked me to create a couple of welcome cards for her baby boy — due date end of July .. I was more than thrilled to create 22 cards that look like this one 🙂 classic: baby blue, white, kraft, polka dots and onesies :)) – not too much sparkle (but one pearl is allowed I guess), buttons and stitches
