I used the Forest Fairy and you can find her HERE in the Etsy Store of Michelle!

Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images

Marvelous Monday!!!

Hi everyone..... It's monday again and the weather here is so wonderful. The sun is shining and outside it smells like herbs and the air is crispy.
The trees are starting to color so beautiful now. They are yellow and brown and here and there still some green.

It's so inspirational to sit and watch the sun play in the leaves...

So this card that I made with Shelly's Images Thanks is inspired by that view from my home.

This image is called Thanks and you can find it HERE  in the store.

On the BLOG of Shelly's Images you can find more inspirational work from the DT
and don't forget to enter in the challenge that started last thursday.
See you there.

Saturday again

Saturday again!

The week has raced by. It was a bumpy ride this week... but at the end I can say that all turned out very well.

Last wednesday my DS turned 17 years young. (And yes for a slight moment I felt old)
And I think that I told before that he is doing an education to become a baker and pastry maker.
He is doing an internship at a famous baker/pastry maker is the big city near to our town.

And on his birthday they gave him the chance to make his very own birthday cake all by himself. So he went to work and did it!!!
And that cake was so beautiful!! He got compliments from the masterchief and they all told him that he is very talented and that he has a great future ahead of him in this line of work.

And when he came how with this cake... Girls... he was glowing from pride and happiness...
Although it has been a bumpy ride for the both of us... I was so proud and happy to see
that he found his happiness in this again.

And the bad thing is... I totally forgot to make a photo of the cake...
(I know shame on me!!!!)
But it tasted sooooo goood!!!! 

And today there is another PARTY coming at the
from Michelle Perkett this afternoon at 1PM Pacific Time the party will start there... and Michelle designed two brand new images for the winners over there.
I hope that you all will join us, bring lot's of fun and cheers with you!

So decided to groom Sprout the Birthday princess for this afternoon

And I know that Camille is all dressed up and ready for this afternoon

So make sure that you are ready and all dressed up to join us in the games and play with us!

Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images

Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images!

Today there is another monday... And it's october already...
I think I missed September completly... really...
That is why I decided to use this sentiment on this card.

I colored these lovely pumpkins with Copic Markers.
I airbrushed the mat of the photo and the mat of the sentiment.
The sentiment paper is airbrushed as well.
The paper on the right is glossy photo paper wich I "stamped" with Various Ink.
The little leaves are cut with my silhouette and airbrushed in their color.

The image is Pumpkins from Shelly's Images Store.
I love this nature image. It is Pumpkin time again. In front of many houses there are pumpkins in all sizes and colors. I love to see that. For me that means that Autumn has began.

And I mentioned the sentiment before....
I found this wonderful blog with the most fantastic sentiments.
It's called Create with TLC.
Pauline is a real star in making these fabulous sentiments!
