Some like it hot ...

This summer is hot hot hot, and most of us (at least those who have to go to work every day) can´t wait for a few colder days, some rain, and cool nights that allow us to sleep again.
But to make the best of these temperatures, you could have a look at the new Songbirdy kits called Summer and Summer Characters that I´ve used to make these two collages. They reminded me of the good things usually connoted to Summer: Bold colours, refreshing water, bathing beauties etc.

Stripey Legs

From time to time, I´m hosting the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and for this week, I´ve picked "Stripey Legs" as my theme as I love a Zetti look. For my sample, I started with some Zetti legs and ended up with two close friends who like each other so much that they try to get as close as possible ... I can´t wait to see your version of stripey legs, so I hope you´ll join this challenge!

Do You Believe in Fairies?

"I believe in everything until it´s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it´s in your mind. Who´s to say that dreams and nightmares aren´t as real as the here and now?" - John Lennon

Though I´m a rational person, Lennon´s words resonate with me, and I like the idea that there´s just something in the air that we can´t explain completely ...

This postcard was made for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Fairies", using elements from Tumble Fish Studio (sadly retired), Crowabout StudioB and my own background scans.

Themed Postcards


Recently I´ve been on vacation for almost two weeks, and I´ve had some more time for my favourite pastime then of course ... so here are three postcards I´ve made for some special occasions.
The first two pics above show my retirement card for a dear friend in the U. S. - hope it has found its way to her in the meantime!
The second card above was made for a "Postal" themed challenge organized by a German rubber stamp company. And the last one below went to the same company for their challenge themed "Shopping". Of course I´ve also decorated the back (addressed) sides of these cards.

Cats (or Dogs?)

No, I don´t have a cat - the only pets I´ve ever had were canaries when I was a child. Nowadays I feel lucky when a couple accepts the bird house on my balcony ... But I also like dogs and cats (though I´m allergic). I´ve often thought about the way they see us humans and the world and what´s going on in their brains. Are you a cat person or do you prefer dogs, and why?
I´ve made this card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Cats" - maybe you´d like to join the challenge!?

New ATCs

As I´ve been on vacation for more than one week, I´ve had some time to play with some of my favourite rubber stamps, so I´ve made a few ATCs for my trading album.

Dolls

I never liked dolls, not even as a child, but I´ve always liked paper dolls. Here´s my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Dolls".
