Dare and Moments of Lifetime



Back from my Christmas holidays, I have some better scans of white ATCs now (thanks to my sister!).

Innocent White



Here´s another white one - what a relaxation to make those simple white ATCs in this hectic state of a christmas week.

White Bird




Here´s another ATC for the two White swaps - I couldn´t resist to have these eyes looking at me out of white feathers, and I´ve had the song in my ears all the time ... (is it by "It´s a beautiful day"? it reminds me on days of youth anyway).

Garden ATCs

My sister has taken a digital photo of my ATCs for the Garden swap, so now all the embellishments can be seen without darkening the picture as a whole. I´ve changed the scans in the older entries now (see November archives). Many thanks to my sister!

Those were the days


Here´s my third and last self-portrait for the Wednesday Stampers. You can see my efforts to look intelligent on a photo when I was three. Some things never change ;-)

Another Self-Portrait

You already know this two year old girl - I wasn´t a book person when I was young, but the more I am today, so this is a combination of the child and the adult.
I would never have thought of making "self-portraits", but I have to confess it´s fun to use photos of yourself. Thanks to the Wednesday Stampers for this great idea!

Self-Portrait


In fact I´ve never felt like a princess when I was a child - so I couldn´t resist to alter my memories for the Wednesday Stampers´ self-portrait theme. I don´t know to which building the steps on the photo of my two year old self belong, but as I grew up in Cologne, I wanted me to sit in front of the cathedral. (Stamps from Stampendous, Rajastamps, and Lost Coast.)

Snowy again


Another Snow White ATC.

The Queen of Snow White




A bad scan, but a nice ATC - the second white one today. My scanner doesn´t like the shimmering snowflakes at all.

The third ATC is almost ready, too, but it´s way too late for setting eyelets :))

White Challenge


Another challenge for a colour lover like me: making white ATCs! This is my first one, and I´ll try to make enough for two swaps in the next weeks. It´s always interesting to see how much stuff you already have for a certain theme which had a good sleep in your boxes for a while ...

Embellishment week


This ATC for the Journey swap is my entry for the Wednesday Stampers this week. The theme is Embellishments, and I´ve used quite a lot of my favourites here: a single word from Tim Holtz, a locomotive charm, a Fresh Verse transparency from Déjà Views with two brads, and a frame by Karen Foster - I love her Corner & Frame Brads and use them in different ways: here the frame is highlighting the destination for example. The map stamp is from Time to Stamp. Oh, and the image was glazed with Diamond Glaze which I often use to get a 3-D look on my ATCs. The frame is filled with glaze, too.

Mrs Dolittle

I´ve made another bird ATC this weekend - Mrs Dolittle is able to talk to the birds of course.
