Playing Cool

When you were young, did you belong to the cool people? Or did you stand in the corner watching the others, doing your own thing? I´ve never been cool, I´ve always had the wrong clothes, friends, hobbies, and thoughts, and it was only when I´ve been in my twenties that I´ve learned that there are people who like me nevertheless - or even because of what I am.
This is how my "Funny Animals" card for this week´s  Sunday Postcard Art came together: I wanted to use these funny peeps playing cool, and because I can only think of them as big city kids, they needed a street art surrounding.
I´ve used rubber stamps from Les Ateliers de Karine, Visible Image, Claudine Hellmuth, and Badass Stamp Studio for my card.

Train - another Corona post

I´ll understand if you´re tired of these, but this is another Corona themed post - well, it´s 2020!
This week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme is "Train", and as I don´t have a driving license, traveling by train is my usual option (no, I´ve never got on a plane so far).
I´ve only had 6 days off work so far in 2020, so I´ve been looking forward to my September holidays (two weeks, yeah!), and as always, I had planned to visit my sister in Berlin. But after watching some TV news about traveling by train here in Germany, I think I´ll better stay at home. But of course I´m not sure about this - I´d love to see my sister for the first time since Christmas, but don´t want to wear a mask for about 6 to 7 hours. And the Corona status in Berlin is even worse that the one in my home town. Should I stay or should I go? (thinking of The Clash of course! what a great song!)
So my thoughts about my upcoming holidays were the inspiration for my card, using rubber stamps from AALL & Create, Paper Artsy and My Favourite Things.

Summer Fun

We´ve had such a hot day today that getting your feet into water was probably a dream we all had - and it looks like the night won´t be much cooler ...
This digital collage was made with my friend Beth´s new Songbirdy kits "Sandy Toes".

You are just jealous because the voices talk only to me -

when I first saw this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme "Conversations", my thoughts went the normal route, but tonight I stumbled upon an old gelli print I´ve made with a magazine photo and a rubber plate from Carabelle, and I decided to add a text stamp from Inkadinkado/ PaperArtsy, some more stamps from Visible Image, and some colour, and here it is, my card about conversations in times of Corona ... isolation leads to self conversations, and those aren´t healthy.

Maritime ATCs

These 3 ATCs were made for a swap themed "Maritime". The one on the left is my version of Loreley - not sitting on her rock singing songs this time but as a mermaid causing shipwrecking from below.
