Lucky Girl

Hey there!

Yes, I am indeed still alive.
Lectures end on Friday, it’s February… things are starting to get more and more exciting.
One great thing: Yesterday my topic for the diploma thesis was accepted. YAY me!!
Many other great things are happening and are to happen still.

I just made a card (that I can’t show you yet, damn), but instead I’ll show you some frames I made for Christmas.

This one was for my mom:

Ingredients:
IKEA frame, Rub-On by Lily Bee Design, Holiday Mix Vintage Buttons (Papertrey Ink) [adhered with Glue Dots], Patterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket (Jack’s World, Lil’ Man) , My Mind’s Eye (Snowed In, Be Merry), October Afternoon (Good Cheer, Cherry Hill), Basic Grey (Figgy Pudding, Blush).

And this manly version was created for my friend Thorsten:

Thanks for looking!

Color Inspiration #57

Thanks to ever busy Kristina, there’s another colour challenge!
I decided to take part despite the – for me – difficult colours.

Yep, those are six (okay, minus the neutral white there are five) colours, including mustard and red, whew.
Since I needed to stock up my stash of Thank You cards, here’s my take on the challenge:

I used my new Martha Stewart punch “Medium Glacial Snowflake” (super cute) and some patterned paper (MME Andrea Victoria, MME Bloom & Grow, Stampin’ Up So Saffron, PTI Pink Patterns, PTi Bitty Box Basics) to punch out the snowflakes, adhered them to a 4 1/2 inch square card (SU Whisper White CS) with 3D Glue Dots and stamped the sentiment (PTI Beyond Basic Borders) in L’Amour Red ink (PTI) before providing a finishing touch by rounding the corners with the 1/2 inch side of my beloved Corner Chomper.

I tried my best with the pictures, but it’s grey and snowing outside…

Anyway, thanks for looking and don’t forget:
The polls for the Christmas Card 2009 are still open 🙂

So long!
