First Time

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed New Year/ New You/ New Beginnings I didn´t want to make just another new year card but tried to capture the thoughts many of us have when we´re starting into a new year - making plans, thinking about things we always wanted to do but didn´t, sorting out things and goals, and so on. 

For some of us, trying new things is one of these goals for a new year. And while you do sooooo many new things when you´re young, this is something rare when you get older. But the nest with its egg waiting to give life to a newborn says it all: You can start a new day or a new year with the decision to do something for the very first time.

Tags & Labels is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge. Years ago, I´ve had a stamping company made my own custom made stamp with the words "Labels are for cans, not people", and it´s very appropriate for this theme. And guess what - the Mad Hatter is not happy with the label people gave him being mad or crazy ... what if he´s just a bit different? Aren´t we all mad here?

12 Days of Christmas


This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is 12 Days of Christmas, and it´s not an easy theme for Germans as we don´t know that song here ...

My card featuring the Seven Swans A-Swimming was made using tape and stamps from AALL&Create and a stamp from The Craft Consortium/Crafter´s Companion.
