Just the 2 of us

Today is the new Cute Card Thursday Challenge up! Challenge number 22 (wow.. time flies fast) is: 'The two of us'.
I used the theme on my sentiment. The picture of my card does not show really well all the glitter i used to make it look like there is snow on the grass and the wall. Unfortunately i sent this card wasy and by the time i did the photoediting .. it was already gone :-( So i was not able to take a new one in different light. Oh well.. i certainly learned from that. In real the area were the grass ist azzels and sparkles like crazy and it looks white! You can barely notice the color of the grass. I could have used liquid applique to imitate the snow.. i think this is the better solution if you want to show off snow on a card for blogs or fotos. I just personally love glitter more and iam a bad photographer :-)

oh well.. here is a close up shot.. still trying i guess.. but it is not much better. You can tell how dissapointed iam.

I have some other news to share with you!!!! :-)
Iam so happy to tell you that my very good friend Kristine has accepted my invitation to become a DTM or better a "Sassy Sketcher Girl" on the Friday Sketcher blog. Iam very excited about this.. i think her work is amazing and she will defenetly inspire me with her cardmaking style. Please come and join us tomorrow on the Friday Sketcher blog when Bea introduces her new sketch for the week.
I would love you to check out Claudia's fantastic work. I think most of the blogging friends know her for certain because she leaves on so many blogs the kindest and sweetes comments. Thank you Claudia!!!

What a beautiful card - fabulous winter scene. I do know what you mean about photography though - I think I could do with going on some kind of learning course. It's acetate I have the problem with though! Lol Lynn x
