See my card at Vidya Sury's Blog


Fairytale Stampers-Flowers
Glitter and Sparkle- Include some Pink

I made this card for a wonderful friend for her birthday. My blogfriend Vidya Sury, whom I met during the A to Z Challenge, wished to spotlight how I create a card. In typical me fashion, this should have been up yesterday and it went right out of my head. I wonder if my brains don't seep out of my ears. Vidya is a wonderful writer of positive thinking, she takes beautiful pictures and I feel, this all relates to her beautiful soul.  I enjoyed creating this card and really went to town. If you wish to know how I created this card, just head over to Vidya's site and all the explaining is there.

Why not have flowers in the middle of winter? I think we could all stand to see some of that and some of the flowers have some deep pink! I don't consider myself a pink kind of girl (I use to abuse my Barbie's) but pink is fun and bright:)

I still can't believe it went out of my head...humble apologies!!

  1. It is a pretty card; I agree, flowers in winter is a good thing, makes us think of spring :) I find the older I get (not that you are old), the harder it is to remember things without a list :) Someone tells me something and I "swear" a minute later it is out of my mind.

  2. See, classic point. I was going to write in my comment that I'm heading over to her blog right now, and of course I forgot to write it, LOL. Heading over to check it out :)

  3. It's beautiful! I'm sure she liked it.
    Abused your Barbies? Do I want to know more?

    1. Thank you-Yes-I had a Barbie camper and i would place my babries in the camper with the door open and pretend they went careening off a cliff and sent them hurling down the stairs to see how they wipes out. I also believe I invented the punk hair cut by giving my barbies a unique haircut

  4. I'm sure this gorgeous work brightened her day immensely (and it's proof that your brain hasn't seeped out of your ears). Off to check out Vidya's blog.

  7. Ah, but the thing is that you did remember. The tutorial was cool, Birgit. I liked seeing all your tools and the process for making the card. You are getting me closer to wanting to do some card making.

  9. This is so lovely and cheerful! I love the hummingbird. He looks even more whimsical because hi swings look a bit like butterflies. Thanks for the breath of spring when we're all feeling the bite of winter. <3

  10. What a beautiful card! I'll head over to Vidya's later to find out more. I also had a Barbie Camper. One day my mom gave it away with all of my precious Barbies and accessories. I'll never know why she had to get rid of them when she continued to hold onto her collection of TV Guides for over thirty years!

    1. Oh that is a shame. My mom asked me if it was time and I said yes. I still have some clothes though and strangely, I Barbie body but 2 heads. Well, it is me so maybe not that strange. Does she have the Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz TV Guide-that is worth a small fortune

  11. Thank you so much for your beautiful card and post, Birgit. :D Such a pleasure!

    Abused your Barbie? Hehehe, I have a feeling I might have, too...if i had had one. :D I was the rag doll kinda person!

    Hugs!

  12. This is soooo pretty, Birgit. We certainly could do with a boost of colourful flowers right now. I esp like how you've used the flowers to frame to birdie in the middle. Have a crafty weekend in your state of the art craft room!

    1. Thank you and it is quite a fun challenge! You can sign up (when it opens at the end of the month). You can pick any topic you wish on anything! You have to just do a brief write up every day in April except Sunday and it has to correspond to the letter of the alphabet. You can show pictures...anything. I did this for the first time last year and had a great time plus met wonderful bloggers

  15. Hi Birgit. This is quite lovely. They look like pansies. In my city there are pansies planted in beds everywhere in the winter months. Those and ornamental cabbage.

    I'll head over read how you made this(smile).

    1. Pansies are so pretty with all their colours-nice that they are out this time of year in your neck of the woods.

  19. Love it - beautiful work.

    When I first glanced at it, I thought I saw a hummingbird. Now that I look at it more, I think a little marker could totally turn this into a hummingbird and make that stamp do double duty.

    1. hahahaha-It is a humming bird:) His little beak is hiding behind the flower. See I am not a perfectionist:)

  20. Wow! Fantastic card. That's not really a card, that's a gift!
    How long did it take to make that?

    1. That is sweet! I am a slow one so it took me about 3 hours+. I had to think what colours and cut out all the little bits and colour all of it and then get really pissed when I placed the hummingbird upside down. It takes me a while

      Delete
  21. That's a beautiful card. I love those colors. Now I'm headed over to Vidya's to find out how you make it, and then laugh because I know whatever those steps are, they're far beyond what I can do. :)

    1. Too funny as macho men would never use this. Actually great idea since they leave our stuff with theirs and then we can't find it

  27. Did you shave your Barbie's hair? Love it.
    Actually, I love pink too.
