Next Edition….

Hello today i have nothing really “new” to show. Yesterday we were busy clear our house from all the snow. My entire family was home, even my husband stayed home from work. This is how bad the roads were. I think some of you told me you saw the snow in the news.

Ink

Well today i publish a photo.. i must say now looking at it.. i do not like the card anymore :-) this card has been made beginning of October and i kind of rushed it too. Strange how much my coloring has changed in just a few months!

The card was entirly made with supplies provided by Magnolia. I got 2 stamps from 2009 collection to make cards for the Valentines Issue and 2 stamps from an older collection to make my Easter cards for the magazine.
This time around i provided for publishing 3 cards for the Valentines issue and 2 for Easter ink

If you have not ordered your issue… you can still buy it over at Sir Stampalot.

Claudia_Rosa_Sweet Home

Magnolia ink Valentines and Easter Issue can now be ordered at Sir Stampalot!
Stamps: Tilda brings a flower
Sentiment: Sweet Home
Die: DooHickey Tag

Oh btw.. have you seen that Sir Stampalot is now carrying My Favorite Stamps??

Thanks girls… take good care of yourself


Love Claudia

Claudia you are far too hard on yourself, this card is gorgeous and i love the colours.....

Love & Hugs Tina xx

Eine sehr schöne karte. Wie man in kurzer zeit sein mahlstil verändern kann......Ich lache immer wenn ich meine ersten karten anschaue. Ich hoffe du hast den schneesturm überlebt und genug futter ins haus geholt. Deine vorige karte ist der hammer.

I think it's a very beautiful card.I like how the tag is just showing a little and the rest of it it's hidden behind the picture.

Donna said...

Claudia, I guess sometimes when you look at a card for a long time you begin to see things that you would have done differently and wish you could change. But I think your card is just adorable. The layout is very interesting. Hope you have dug out from the snow. I'll send our ice up if you want to trade. I so would rather have snow than ice. Take care!

Dina said...

Well, I have to say that I have no idea why you don't like this card. I think it's fabulous. I love the flowers and the colors you chose. Great design, too. I think it's awesome. As for the snow, I hope you are free and clear of it soon. We lost power for a few days last week and that was awful, too! I am ready for spring!

This card is stunning, your colouring is just fantastic, you are just sooooo talented and I am so glad you share your wonderful creations.x

Archies Mum said...

Lovely card, your colouring is perfect, I wish I could colour my images as good as that with all the right shading. Congrats on being in the new Magnolia Magazine

Jodi said...

The coloring here is great...it is amazing how we see ourselves get better at a craft after doing it for so long. The card is gorgous. You asked me in your comment on my blog about my lab and I seemed sad. We still have him, he is 14 yrs old, the sad part is he has lost most of his hearing and getting around is hard for him...yes, he use to set in the swing with my daughter,he loved it.

Can't wait to see your next card! Stay warm and be careful...

Stempelhexe said...

Obwohl die Magnolia nicht so meins sind bewundere ich immer wieder, wie toll Du sie in Szene setzt. Die Coloration, die Anordnung, das ganze Kärtchen....einfach einsame Spitze.

Shelly said...

I think you are being a little hard on yourself. It's beautiful!! But I guess you should feel proud that coloring has come along so well. Really Claudia, I think you are one of the best with copic markers =) That's why I'm always here checking out your blog! I hope you are staying warm in all that snow. I just noticed something about this stamp too, one of her socks is higher than the other *smile*

Liebe Claudia,
wir bekommen hier in Deutschland ja nur aus der Presse mit, wie schlimm es bei euch sein muß.
Haltet durch und packt euch warm ein.

Die Karte ist super schön geworden und du weißt ja, daß ich deine Coloration liebe.

Liebe Grüße, Nadine

Melanie-Jane said...

Hallo Claudia,
Ich hoffe die Situation mit dem Schnee hat sich wieder etwas normalisiert. Bei uns ist es ja genau das gegenteil in der Schweiz, wir könnten den Schnee in den Bergen gut gebrauchen, aber hier hat es schon seit über einem Monat nicht geschneit und die Skipisten sind am Rande überall grün/braun...

Deine Karte gefällt mir sehr gut auch wie du Tilda bemalt hast.

Ich wünsche Dir eine schönes Wochenende.
Hugs, Melanie-Jane

Manu said...

This card is adorable!
Your works are wonderful!

Sorry to hear you had such a bad time with the snow.. Did Maus cope with it alright?
Have a great weekend sweetie, hope to catch up real soon!
