Loving Wishes

Hi ladies, thanks for swinging by.
I have had a few “lazy” days. Since the Autumn is here, i am suffering again from my allergies. Which makes me really upset, cause not only do look like a walking tomato, no i have also headaches. In Spring it got so bad that i had to see my doctor and he told me that Michigan is supposedly one of those states with the highest statistics of people suffering from allergies. He said – if you live 8 years in Michigan and you still have not developed allergies, you are good.

Luckily for today i can show you a card which i have made a few weeks back. Magnolia contacted me, and asked if i could make some Valentines cards, which the company can publish on the backside of the Christmas issue – to advertise for the forthcoming Valentines issue. In fact the DT are already working on the Valentines issue. Crazy hmmmm??? :-) It’s not even Halloween yet lol.

Anyhow.. the cards should use a Edwin image, so i made 2 Edwin cards, 1 Tilda card and 1 card using the little puppy with rose, for Magnolia to pick from. Today’s card has not been chosen, so i am free to show this card on my blog today.

Just gorgeous, love the rich colours and of course your fantastic colouring. I have allergies too mostly in the spring though, I can totally relate, hope you're feeling better soon!

Na klasse, das ist eigentlich gemein, daß du im Herbst deine Allergie bekommst, weil ja dann eigentlich nicht mehr so viele Pollen fliegen.
Ich wünsche dir auf jeden Fall gute Besserung, ich habe selbst Allergie und weiß, wie man sich dann fühlt.
Ich weiß ja nicht, ob du Connections nach Good old Germany hast, aber es gibt hier ein Medikament, das heißt Reactine Duo, das hilft eigentlich ganz gut und ist erschwinglich. Vielleicht ist das ja ein Tipp, der hilft.

Die Karte ist auf jeden Fall toll geworden.

Liebe Grüße, Nadine

Beautiful card. I still find it hard to work 'out-of -season' although I do start Christmas cards in August.

Sorry to hear you and so many other people are suffering. Terrible to have an environment so unhealthy.

Your card is just darling I love how you color your images just so much depth to them :)
