Spring Fling

Hello and good morning. I will make it short about my card because i have something very exciting to tell you :-) I make many of my cards using the Friday Sketcher sketches .. not only for the current week but sometimes i go way back to find inspiration. Well.. happened that my friend Bea, made a sketch that blew me away and that day i have made a card with her sketch - turned out that it was way too early :-) Bea kindly allowed me to show the card anyways on my blog xxx Thanks sweetie. My other card using her creative idea is here . For the card today - i used one of the last years Spring stamps and some scraps of papers i had created lol. You are going to see quite a few cards with them made in the next week :-)

This lovely stamp can also be purchased at Magnolia-licous! Make sure to check out the pre-naputal sale page!
Coloring: all Copic markers and Neenah paper an be found at 7 kids college fund
Please take a look what
Carole,
Bea,
Heidi,
Jaqueline ,
Kristine and Murmur came up with using the sketch for this week.

Now for the exciting news i have... Magnolia has kindly given me a VERY, VERY generous blog candy to give away. This being said i don't want just one lady have the chance of winning this amazing prize. I have made several bags filled with 3-4 matching stamps, so many of you have a chance to win some stamps. I think i will be able to put the posting up on Sunday this week, so once the time is over you should have the stamps before Eastern in your mailbox.
This is just one way to tell you from Magnolia and me how much we appreciate you!

I just want to learn how to color like you do on those beautifully crafted cards! I printed your tutorial on skin coloring, but have a long way to go to master your technique; thank you for taking time to write it all.

Not only do you do great cards with whole sheets of paer, but then you take the scraps and make gorgeous cards too...
I used to throw my sraps away (too much clutter), but now i think I may think twice before doing that.

knag said...

What a festive card you created! Love the colors. Great way to welcome Spring!

Linda S. said...

Hi Claudia, Goodness, your news is very exciting!! How generous of Magnolia and you to offer enough stamps for candy so that you can choose more than one winner. Love that idea. You are always so kind to your followers!
Who would even know that you used scraps to make that beautiful card? I think it is a great way to demonstrate better use of what we spend our money on. Keep up the good work. Linda S. in NE

anni said...
