Coffee

 
When I was young, I didn´t like coffee but preferred tea. It took me many years to find out that I just didn´t like coffee with milk but loved it without. And when I moved to a region with bad water, I gave up making Darjeeling (because it doesn´t work right here) and became a coffee person. 

For a coffee themed ATC swap, I started with the ATC above and liked it a lot, but then it was hard to make some others to go with it. I´m happy with my result now, but the first ATC is still my favourite. Unfortunately the scanner took a bit of her rosy cheeks and lips ...

City of Stars


Most of us have seen "LaLaLand", I think, and while I don´t remember the story, what has been in my head for quite a while is the wonderful song "City of Stars" - so I´ve used it as the inspiration for my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Stars". 

I´ve used stamps from VivaLasVegas, Visible Image, Paper Artsy, Ranger, Nellie´s Choice and Stampers Anonymous for this card.

Jack Frost

 
Jack Frost is the name of this card I´ve made for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Frost". I´ve used rubber stamps from PaperArtsy/Lynne Perrella and Oxford Impressions - and Glitter embossing powder. As you can´t see it on the scan, I´ve also made a photo to show the glitter.

Usually, the first night of the year is one of the coldest, but this year we´ve had 13 degrees, and it was even warm enough to spend New Year´s Eve on the balcony!

New Beginnings

 

This month´s theme for the Visible Image ATC swap is "Something New", and my ATC and card for Tracey in the UK are my New Year´s greeting for my blog readers - I´m wishing you all a better, healthier, more colourful and creative year 2022. We won´t miss 2021, I´m quite sure ... see you in 2022!

Believe


This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is an open one, so I´ve chosen a card I haven´t shown yet - it could be used as a holiday card but doesn´t have to ...

Angels

 

My card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Angels" was made with rubber stamps from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous and Visible Image. I love to combine traditional items like the angel with modern images like the cityscape.
