Mum ~ I love you

Hi there, how are you?
We have had here in the US a long weekend. Yesterday my family was home and usually this means for us – home improvement projects lol. This time we worked in my laundry room. Found some really cool cabinets at IKEA i liked… with red doors and silver hardware. Not quite sure though if i am going for. I just liked the contemporary look.

My card for today… well… that’s a story… so yesterday i really wanted to make at least one card.. so iam thinking something quick… right… you would think i have lots of papers and stamps but i could not figure out what to do and match up. I was getting frustrated. Sometimes things just fall into place an other days it is just like there a worm in – as we would say in German lol.

However.. iam pleased with the outcome. I liked how the “
Mum” – balloons do create a sentence with the added “I love You
” sentiment.

Sentiment: Magnolia Rubberstamps
Papers: My Minds Eye

HI! Claudia, I love your expression: "A day like there is a worm in..." LOL. I have those days too. My head spins and I just can't make it stop, so nothing does fall into place. I love your balloons, so precious, ad the little bear in mid air, so cute.
Your colors are so bright and happy, so very lovely.
Hugs. Danielle.

Darn it Claudia I am so jealous, you really have a way with Copic Markers. Mine sets in the the craft room accumulating dust, I just can't seem to get a beautiful outcome like you do. Gorgous, I love it, like I said I am jealous!

Debbie said...

Wow, the cabinets sound really nice... Love ikea they have great stuff... I hope you weren't like the commercial since they are having a sale right now...lol you know the one where she drives up to the house in a truck and says they're having a sale, and she's going back for more

Anyway, the card is adorable, guess even creative genius' like you have "writers block" every once in awhile... But the outcome is gorgeous... Love what you did with the balloons both yesterday & today!!!

Hugs
Debbie
