Hello ladies, i hope you have a good day. What a pity, just when we thought the warmer weather has arrived, it started to rain. Last weekend we went to the Detroit Farmers Market and i have in my driveway several tomato plants, herbs and flowers sitting who need to be planted. Oh well.. think i will make a card instead lol.

I can not wait until i have my order with the new stamps from Motivet in… so i was re-organizing my Motivet’s and thought this cutie would look so sweet with my new Tim Holz papers. The simple greys and pinks matched nicely and i wanted to try to give it a vintage feel.. so i distressed and inked a lot :-)

Stamps: Motivet “Hilda as ballerina” have you seen that Cute Stamps and Cards is now selling Motivet’s? The store even has some of the new stamps already in stock and they are ready to ship!!!!
Sentiment: Stampin up
Papers: Tim Holz (grey and pink), Panduro (musical note)
Tools: Nestabilities (oval, deckled oval, Label), Word Window punch
Embellishments: lace, pearl stickers, stickles by Cute stamps and Cards, ribbon and hardware by Stampin up, rose embellishment (Jolee’s boutique)
Coloring: Copic Sketch, Vintage photo

OH and before i forget.. while i re-organized my shelves i took some things out (mostly Stampin up) i would love to sell.. i have listed those in my “for sale” folder (on the top of my blog) i will be adding some more things when iam able to take pictures of it. Right now it is so dark all day outside, the pics are horrible :-(

Hugs Claudia

This is just so cute... it's reminds me of my sister, when she was small. We used to call her hippo :) I like the colours you chose. Pink and grey fit very well together.
