Spring Time

Hello my friends… back with a new card. 
Finding time to spent at my craft table has become more and more difficult. Not sure what has changed so much in my daily routine… just strange.

Claudia_Rosa_Like A Song_2

The day before yesterday i felt like everything i touched just broke underneath my hands. My dishwasher leaked – once again :-(, i had to clean all the water off the floor, than my Dyson made funny noises and at night when we wanted to watch TV i touched the remote to change channels and the WOW cable box shut off. So much for TV night! Not to mention that the printer died last week. Come on… how much bad luck can one person have?!

I guess i told you a bit from my personal life cause i did not know really what to tell you about my card :-) pretty straight forward. Except maybe i went with some colors out of my comfort zone…. hot pink!

Hawaiian Tilda is from the newest Spring 2011 Collection and can be ordered through Sir Stampalot
Papers are by Making Memories – its a 8x8 pack called Dilly Dally – The border punch i used is by Martha Stewart. I quite like that one.. i love to add some tiny pearls in the center of those flowers.. on this card i tried but i found it at the end too busy.

Sending lots of love to your home

Merry said...

Beautiful card....I would never think to put all those patterned papers together but they work. I hope you have come to the end of your 'things breaking down' streak. I have found as the my kids got older and technically I had more time to me....I always have had less time. Weird.

Louise said...

Beuatiful card Claudia, I love the mix of colours you've used. Really hope your run of bad luck with broken appliances has come to an end. x

Kylie said...

Oh no! I hope your luck improves soon! Your card is stunning! I love the gorgeous bright colours. I know how you feel about the hot pink, lol. I have a card appearing on my blog later on in hot pink, its a bit of a shock to colour when you're not used to it :)But you have coloured it beautifully!
Big hugs,
Kylie xx
BTW - Ring the Dyson helpline about your vacuum, they are usually wonderful, well, here in Aus they are terrific, so I would imagine they are just as wonderful in the US :) Hugs xx

Hi! so so gorgeous Claudia,i really love the pretty colours!!
Hope you have some better days :) i know just what you mean-not enough hours in the day and i don't seem to get a card made in one session at the moment.
My Mum says that with everything just starting to grow again after the Winter all the flowers/trees
take all of the energy (ours too i think)
take care,hugs Lou.xx

Kirsty said...

Hi All this bad luck means an excuse for lots of selfish treats !! and now it's over all the good luck will return hopefully by the bucket load. I really do love this Tilda she is my favourite so far in this collection. I really do admire your cards they are so modern compared to other DTs . I think it's the colours and papers you choose . Kitty :)

This article gives the light in which we can observe the reality. This is very nice one and gives in-depth information. Thanks for this nice POST.

Julye said...

Hi Claudia, I think we all have periods in our life like this. I console myself with things come in 3's so if one thing breaks I start finding another 2 that have already broken and tell myself that is the 3. Ihad a friend when I was nursing that believed in bio rhythms and she would check her's daily on the internet, if all 3 were at a low point she would just stop in bed all day.
One thing that is definitely not broke is your card it is fab and this Tilda is gorgeous and wow I wish I could colour like you. Thanks for sharing and hope things settle down for you.

KarinsArtScrap said...

your coloring is great and I love that pink.
