My Pink Flower Window

Yesterday it rained cats and dogs here in Switzerland.
And it was so good!
After weeks with extreme hot and dry weather
every single rain drop made a good job.
My own flowers have been suffering this summer.
So they don't look healthy at all.
But with some paper snippets I could create this window, at least.

I used:
Doble card A6, creme;
Snippets of white and pink papers;
Doily from a coffee house;
Embossing folder: Darice;
Flowers: EK Success (punch) and Memory Box (die);
Leaves: Cottage Cutz "Ivy";
Rhine Stones and Versa Color ink.

Du wirst uns fehlen

Für eine gute Freundin,
die jetzt in ihr Heimatland zurückziehen wird,
habe ich diese einfache Karte gemacht.

Doppelkarte, A6, weiss;
Papier: Craft Sensations "Secret Rose";

At first I want to welcome Mrs A as a follower of my new blog.
Thank you!

Ich glaube, dass (fast) ganz Europa die Frauen Fussball EM
geschaut hat.
Naja. Vielleicht nicht alle. Aber ich zumindest.
Und einige andere auch.
Als Norwegen (mein Land), die Schweiz und sogar Deutschland
nicht mehr zum Finalspiel kamen,
war bei mir die Unsicherheit gross.
Aber das Finalspiel war super,
und die Holländerinnen haben es klasse gemacht.
Ich habe eine CAS Karte für die "orangen Frauen" gebastelt.
Herzliche Gratulation!

Butterflies On A Hot Summer Day

Welcome back again to my blog, Barb! I'm so happy!
I hope more of my old followers will find my new blog and join in.
This year the summer here in the middle and south of Europe
is really hot!
So I prefer to stay indoors,
drinking water and looking at the empty, silent world outside.
Also other people prefer to be away from this extreme heat!

Today I made a butterfly card.

I used:
Double card A6, cream;
Blue paper for the mat;
Scrap papers of different colours;
Butterfly Embossing folder: Darice;
Tiny butterflies: Craft Sensations stamp and die;
(I got them as a gift yesterday and just had to try them!)
Flowers: EK Success punch.
The grass I free hand cut.
I also used "Silver" glitter glue and marker.

With this card I want to take place here:
