Hello, thank you for stopping by. Sorry for my late posting today... i had an early appointment at the doctors since i have not been better in the last 2 weeks.

Turns out i am close to have Pneumonia / Lungenentzuendung. So, now i will take my meds and hope i can get over with that stuff quickely. At least it is not the swines flue, i must say i was getting worried.

Well.. my card is going to be sent to N. Lee in Canada who as sent me a truly amazing Christmas card. Thank you dear Norma!

Well :-) who is interested in looking... an other mission accomplished.. i have used on this card my last paper scraps of this pretty Pink Paislee paper. The first card made with it was a Sarah Kay gate fold card and it left some awkward pieces left
Stamps: Hanglar Stanglar, Hampton Art stamps, Sentiment: $1 bin Michaels
If you click on the first picture you should be able to see the sparkle i have added with my Sakura Stardust pen onto the key and the sentiment.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black, Stampin up (Going Grey and Creamy Caramel)

beautiful card, Claudia! Norma will surely love it!

not sure if i'm the only one experiencing this, but your blog's banner seems too long for the page, and it cuts off on the right unless i scroll over... i see the title "Pretty Pres" and it stops there. i'm sure you didn't intend for it to be that way, so i thought i'd mention it! (in the event that i'm the only one, just disregard the comment altogether!)

still crossing my fingers for your October 7th blog candy - did you know that you have 800 linkies now?! holy cow!

Bribrie said...

Wouah c'est assez printanier comme carte, ça réchauffe un peu ! Bravoo

Nicola said...

Hallo Claudia,

deutsch fällt mir doch leichter als englisch. Deine Karte gefällt mir wie alle deine Karten wieder sehr gut. Ich liebe deine Karten.

Ich wünsche dir gute Besserung und einen guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr.

Hast du schon mal Schmalz-Muskat-Wickel probiert? Man nimmt Gänseschmalz und streicht es auf ein Tuch und gibt frisch geriebenes Muskat drauf. Diesen Wickel macht man sich um die Brust. Hört sich eklig an, ist es auch, aber ein Geheimtip gegen Lungenentzündung.

Wish you the best
Hugs Nicola

[url= ]альтернатива спортзалу [/url]
Года 3-4 назад одногруппники называли нас с подружкой хохотушками: смеялись с ней не переставая. Теперь я буквально не смеюсь. Не могу. Просто не забавно. Чтобы не казаться букой, находясь в какой-либо фирмы, улыбаюсь и смеюсь через силу. Раньше это получалось просто, в последнее время удается все труднее. Смотрю на других, когда они смеются, и даже немножко завидую. Что же не так? А я так хочу вновь смеяться, весело и беззаботно.

[url= ]вы замечали что рядом с очень красивой девушкой мужчины как то теряются краснеют? [/url] у меня большое колличество комплексов по поводу моей внешности..мне от этого ооочень дурно и я незнаю что делать....но насчёт внешности я ещё смогу как то пережить, а вот интимный комплекс меня просто убивает...и мне очень охото услышать мнение другх...
мне очень неудобно об этом писать, но я хочу высказаьтся ибо не произносить ни звука и бояться более нет силы...
вообщем у меня малые потовые губы выступают из больших...и это смотрится так некрасиво....так как они прям выпирают...блин это так неудобно...просто я же рано или же поздно потеряю свой блеск девственнось, а что будет с парнем который увидит это? кроме всего прочего клитера у меня не видно...я так боюсь азочаровать такого с кем буду сообща в дальнейшем...напишите правду, это же ужасно да?
а ещё у меня большие мешки под глазами даже в случае в случае если я высыпаюсь.... и изза этого я боюсь выказывать всем своё лицо и каждый день прячу его за волосами......и буквально каждый день когда я иду по улице..я вижу своё отблеск и говорю про себя "я тупой урод"...и хотя все мне говорятчто я очень великолепная, я вижу в зеркале эти выперающие мешки под глазами!!! и немогу никому показать собственного лица!!!!доходило аж до слёз...ведь ниукого такого более нет помимо женщин за 40!!!!извените в случае в случае если кого то оскорбила но сколько я хожу по улицам, никого не видеа с тем же что и у меня на лице...да и из-за этого у меня может даже и не быть молодого человека...
вообщем я страшная и на лицо и там также.......и молодого человека у меня небыло..вообщем пишу что бы мне хотябы подповторяли мои мысли...вот..
