Hello good morning. Today i have some exciting news - there are 2 new challenges starting beginning this week. Iam so honoured that i was invited to join the fabulous group of card designers. I totally love challenges but my time with family and house is not too much so in order to be able to join the challenge groups i have decided to drop out of Regina's Cutting Cafe DT. I loved designing for Regina. She is a sweetheart! But joining the challenge sites is just a little less commitment especially since i have noticed that i need more time for my family. Some of you might now that one of my children has special needs.
Anyhow.. this week is spring break and i have worked all my cards ahead of time so i have more time for the boys and i was not able to make a card for both new challenge sites :-) I did not want to miss to invite you over and check the new sites out.

Papers: Making Memories and Stampin up (Night of Navy, Old Olive, So Saffon

Embellishments: Ribbons and clip by Stampin up, Stickles: Ranger

Stampavie challenge is up for you every other Monday starting at the first week of the month.

"Stamp with Fun" a new challenge (themed and sketches) is up every Monday for everyone to play along.

Hi Claudia!

ich schreibe wieder auf Deutsch, Mein Englisch ist nicht so gut haha.
Danke schön, dass du mein Blog besucht hast :)
Ja die Tilda ist süß was! Ich bin beim Magnoliaevent gewesen ja, ich war auch total überrascht als ich die kleine Tilda gesehen habe!
Ist ja schade, dass du sie nicht mehr bekommen konntest, aber wenn du welche Abdrucke haben möchtest, brauchst du nur zu fragen und deine Adresse zu schicken ;)

Liebe Grüße
