My Christmas Cards 2015

Even though some of my postcards are rather naughty, I can be nice as well 😉 – these are classy and a bit vintage, some of them were inspired by this card:

While I was at it, I made these greeting cards as well:

Do you like them? I’m happy about your feedback 😀

I swapped with myself

… because I joined Get Messy after the paper swap had taken place. Something with a nice texture, something stamped, some paper with text… as I have all of that in my stash, anyway, I pretended to gather papers for an imaginary swap partner. The result is this combination which I’ll show you as the finished art journal page:

For the newest Retro Sketch I made this card:

Apart from that I am looking forward to next week’s craft show which I am preparing for. Details follow tomorrow 😀

12 Tags of 2015 – February

12 Tags of 2015 - February

Yay, I got it online on time! I almost forgot to upload it (just like I did in January)… So here’s my newest tag, inspired by Tim Holtz’ February tag for his challenge “12 tags of 2015“. It is a little simpler than I had planned to make it, but somehow it felt complete the way it is.
It refers to my Mom and Dad’s vintage postcard collection, and I actually used some of their cards (scanned and printed) for this tag. The handwritten sample on top comes from an old recipe book which I once bought at a fleamarket.
Here are two more details (stickers which were still in my stash, and some lace):

Happy Birthday, Papa! Mojo Monday 380 1

MojoMonday380Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday, so the current Mojo Monday sketch came at the perfect time. As a little eye-catcher I chose one of my vintage images, a sweet cutie 🙂
There used to be a doggie sitting next to the boy, but I had to cut him off because he didn’t really look good on the card. Sorry, doggie.
The book page comes from an old, boring fleamarket book which still serves a purpose as craft supply. So here’s my card, I’m looking forward to your feedback 😉
