Happy New Year Tag

So the old year is packing its bags and 2016 is just around the corner. I hope it will be a healthy and joyful year for all of us. I intend to be adding a lot of colour to it, making cards for the ones I love and adding them to my blog. Tonight I’m […]

Magical Winter Days

Magical Winter Days

Christmas is over, but there are plenty more cards to create. I have a gorgeous German sentiment stamp which proclaims “zauberhafte Wintertage” meaning “magical Winter Days”. This works well on heaps of different cards and I never seem to tire of using it.   So here is todays card. It is quite simple, basicly using […]

Christmas Bunnies Follow-Up

Christmas Bunnies Follow-Up

First problem solved

This is big news for me and my blog! And hopefully for friends and family following so far. The problem of “page not found” on the first post kept me quite busy last night. This morning I finally solved it and am now motivated to keep on learning this stuff. I will add a picture […]
