Owl = Eule = Chouette

Here´s my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Dictionary": I´ve used a dictionary page with the French word "Chouette" for owl in English and Eule in German; the stamps are from Hampton Arts (Dictionary Alpha), Cavallini (Hand), and A Capella (Steampunk Owl),

Framed


For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Use a Frame", I´ve framed the German author Thomas Mann (1875-1955) who emigrated to Switzerland in 1933 and to the U. S. in 1939 and who got the Nobel prize for literature in 1929 (but for his "Buddenbrooks" he had written in 1901!) I´ll visit his hometown Lübeck next week and will visit the famous Buddenbrooks House of course ... If you haven´t read anything from Mann or did it only in your school days long ago, I´d like to encourage you to do so again because his elegant style is so full of wit and surprises = sentences you wouldn´t expect from an author of his decades - in my opinion he really liked to step out of his frame from time to time and to think outside the box!

School Days

This week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme is "School Days", and my card includes two very personal elements: the building is my own school that I attended for 9 years at the age of 10 to 19 in the 70s and early 80s, and the pupil on the right is my father on his first school day about 1931. All other elements are from Manuela Zimmermann and the ColorSplash kit from Mischief Circus.

Welcome to Mischief Circus!

Welcome to Mischief Circus!
I´ve been on vacation for the last 9 days but returned home just in time for today´s big news: Deviant Scrap, the home of so many fabulous digital designers, has changed its name to Mischief Circus, and they´ve come out with a lovely new store wide collab themed "Halloween @ Mischief Circus". And as always with their Collect your own Collab events, there´s a great addon kit to grab for free:
As I´ve been away, I haven´t had much time to play with the new kits from Tracey and Marsha, but I´ve made a cut and paste postcard with both their kits (at Hidden Vintage Studios and Tumble Fish Studio) that you can see on top of my post - welcome to Mischief Circus!
