red, white & blue

When I first read that theme at the Sweet Stampin Challenge I thought about my time as an Au Pair in the USA. Memorial Day or Independence Day had been days of red, white and blue... I also remembered Alia, the little girl I've been taking care of, in her cute little red & white dress for Memorial Day. I miss her and her brother Casey soo much!

Als ich das Thema der Sweet Stampin Challenge zuerst gehört habe, habe ich sofort an meine Zeit als Au Pair in den USA denken müssen. Der Memorial Day und der Independence Day sind Tage in rot, weiß und blau... Außerdem mußte ich sofort an Alia denken, das kleine Mädchen auf das ich aufgepaßt habe, in ihrem süßten rot-weißen Kleidchen am Memorial Day. Ich vermisse sie und ihren Bruder Casey soo sehr!

So I came up with this card:
Diese Karte kam dabei heraus:

winter fun...

They have a great challenge at Kartenallerei with the theme "winter card in purple". I loved that right away, so I decided to create a purple winter dream card.
And here it is...



Stamp: Magnolia
Dies: Creatables Snowflakes
Embossed Snowflakes: Sizzix
Colours: Crayons
Stickles & glitter hairspray


I loved that Magnolia image the first time I've seen it and here's my first card with it. I wanted the snowflakes to glitter/sparkle a bit, but I thought that stickles would be too much... So I used some of my glitter hair spray for carnival on them. They look great now, but I had to blow dry them... LOL

Anyways, I think the card looks amazing and I am entering it in the challenge at Kartenallerlei challenge 20 - winterkarte in lila, at stamps + fun =creativity challenge 32 glitzer / bling bling and at steckenpferdchen challenge 8 - Schneeflocken.
