Sending Birthday Wishes

Hello thank you for visiting my blog today. I have been a bad blogger the last few weeks i have to admit it and time wise it will not be much better for me in the near future. On the weekend i will host Lucas "official" birthday party and on the weekends we will work on our renovations (on top of the kitchen we discovered a leak in the laundry room :-( ) while i than must clean up that fine dust from the tiling and grouting. I feel very poorly about not being able to comment back on your blogs.



My card is made with my dear friend Marlene in mind! As you might now her birthday is coming up soon and i wanted to make her a nice birthday card. Puuuhhh the pressure was on :-) I have colored the cute Hanglar girl with my Copic makers and than used on the birdhouse Shimmerz (wed wagon paint) and on the sentiment and outside of the card Golden Glimmer paint. The tag came already in a walnut stain, i have added on top of that 2 different colors of Shimmerz spritz let it dry and than stamped with Stampin up Classic ink (Really Rust - stamped once off) the swirls.
The card sketch can be found over on the Friday Sketcher blog where my dear friend Jeanette came up with this wonderful sketch to follow. Thank you Jeanette - i love this one!
Stamps: Hanglar Stanglar, Sentiment (Stampin up Circle of Friendship), swirls Stempelgelde (Grunge Collection)
Papers: Making Memories "Autum Splendor", Stampin up
Embellishments: new Shimmerz Fall paints (Wed Wagon, Gold Glimmer) and Spritz Colors (Treasured Hhyme, Babies Breath), Stampin up (ribbon, string), bird feathers and pin from my friend Kristine
Tools: various circle punches

Quick Reminder: you still have 1 more day to participate in the Stampers United blog hop. There are on every blog prizes to win and at the end we have a huuuuudge end prize up. Good Luck everyone :-) hugs

Candy said...

Another card to die for Claudia!!
Do you remember years ago I wrote to you asking where I could buy the Magnolia Stamps - you were the only person I saw using them at that time? Now I am wondering if you can tell me where to buy the H & S Stamps? I love them just as much as the Maggies but can't find them????
What beautiful work you have done with this image. Wonderful - just wonderful!
Hugs, Candy
PS. - don't work too hard on your house - please keep time to show us your cards :o)
