I have actually created quite a few cards but my hubby is a camera nut and had over 500 pictures that I had to download. I just had time to post these 2 before I went on off to work. I actually spent a good part of my weekend in my craft room since I did not feel like being outside, sweating, bitching and turning into Queen B (not for my name). I can't wait for rain and cooler weather. So, without further delay, here is my card for today...

I had fun creating this damsel of the seas. I bought this mermaid 1 1/2 years ago at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto and love her. I coloured her with tombow markers and created the inner sea with Tim Holtz dies of which i can't recall the names-sorry but it was a blue and green. I had this purple piece laying around from a former die cut and decided to use it as a frame and had the cuddlebug in use to create the sea design. I adhered all the paper to gold and calypso blue cardstock. I always love stickles and border stickers which I used gold to frame it all. The final bit was to punch out the dolphins in white and add some white dots here and there. I hope to showcase more cards in the very near future...
Nice card, and that pasta looks delicious!ReplyDelete
Thank you and it was:)Delete
Keeping cool and creative at the same time, good stuff!ReplyDelete
It's the only way to goDelete
Just so long as you don't transform into a Borg Queen thats fine by me! Haha... I'll eat as much spinach and ricotta which you can possibly shell out!ReplyDelete
Ahhhh yes, I could be the Borg Queen on rare occasions as my poor hubby can attest.Delete
Glad you enjoyed the spinach and ricotta shells. Thanks for the shout out. Haven't tried them myself yet, guess I should do so. Hoping to have more time now, once we get the place sorted out again. Love the mermaid.ReplyDelete
It was really good and you are welcome. I hope things return to normal for you soonDelete
That is a great one indeed. Yeah, the outside is far too hot for this hermit hahaReplyDelete
Thank you. I am hoping August will be coolerDelete
Love the mermaid...fabulous card Birgit....well our hot spell has broken here and we are back to the usual English summer...so it's raining....xxxxReplyDelete
Thanks about my mermaid...finally a card eh! We had a little rain on Monday but still not much. We need a good 2 days of rain.Delete
Recipe looks delicious; she does post a lot of fine ones! I love the card with the mermaid, very nicely done!ReplyDelete
It was delicious. Thank you about my cardDelete
Mermaids fascinate me, such a pretty card!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. Glad you like the card. They are one mythical creature I wish were true.Delete
Nice job with the mermaid!ReplyDelete
We've made that dish before. It's good.
Thanks and that dish is yummyDelete
Your spinach and ricotta half shells dish certainly does look delicious. I scratched the screen and sniffed but, unfortunately, could not smell anything. :)
What a lovely card! Your mermaid reminds me of the famous mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs located not too far from our home. I also love the cute little white dolphins blowing bubbles. Did you do that on porpoise? :) Well done, dear friend BB - a clever card indeed. Enjoy the rest of your week!
You are too funny.:) my ex is the king of puns. I'm glad you like my card and my little dolphinsDelete
Great card, and that pasta looks delicious.ReplyDelete
Thank you and the dish was delish!Delete

Hello Birgit: Well, your delicious Ricotta and Spinach half shells caught my eye immediately and then, I saw your beautiful card, WOW!! I love this under water scene with this gorgeous Mermaid floating about.ReplyDelete
I too save the negatives of my die cuts, they make the perfect frames.
Thank you for including Retro Rubber in your stamping fun this week, we hope you join us again soon.
I bet that pasta dish was delicious.
The recipe is easy actually and it is delicious! Thank you about my card and glad that you save these up also.Delete
That dinner does look delicious! Glad you tried a new recipe and enjoyed it so much.ReplyDelete
I love that card! It is just beautiful! The colors and the and style- all of it are awesome. I adore mermaids and this is just fabulous! :)
The dinner was excellent and a keeper. Glad you like my mermaid....this was a fun one to do.Delete
I love the mermaid, Birgit. Hope life is treating you well. Have a lovely week.ReplyDelete
Glad you like my mermaid:) I am all better now and life is wonderfulDelete
Fantastic card, Birgit. Adding the dolphins was a great detail. Love the layers and textures. Thanks so much for sharing this card with Retro Rubber. Hope to see you often in our gallery!ReplyDelete
Thank you...I am so glad you like my cardDelete
I like pasta dishes, but not keen on cooked spinach. I like spinach in my salads, but for some reason, don't like it cooked.ReplyDelete
I love the card. You do such a wonderful job with all these cards. Looking forward to seeing more.
Thank you! I do have more coming:) I think one could make this dish and substitute spin h for something else...not sure what though:)Delete
I love your card, Birgit! Very calming to look at. Your dish looks yummy. It's too hot to bake anything. I might just open a can of sardines for dinner.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I love sardines! And I love pickled herring in sour cream...yum yumDelete
Very nice. And I don't blame you for not wanting to be out in the heat. I'm not a fan, myself.ReplyDelete
Thank you and yes...too darn hot!Delete
Super cute!!! Thank you for joining us at Retro Rubber, good luck!!! Amy DTReplyDelete
I love Mermaids, so I am a bit biased here :) She's stunning, i have way too many Mermaid stamps. I cannot believe you want rain - I LOVE it when its crazy hot..I am a natural Lizard. LOL. Thanks for playing with us at Retro Rubber. Claire DTReplyDelete
Oh I just have one stamp but I love her. You can be the lizard and I can be a polar bear....hahahaaa.Delete
The food looks delicious! Your card is stunning, Birgit; love the colours. I don't mind the heat, as long as there's A/C nearby to cool off. I know many people do hate it, though. Hang in there; cooler weather will arrive eventually.ReplyDelete
Thanks! More cards to follow and the dish was delish! I can't wait for cooler weatherDelete
Your card and dish looks great!ReplyDelete
This is a work of art! All the detail and color and layers and texture! Thanks for sharing with RR!ReplyDelete

Oh my goodness.... that looks so delish! Food trumps card ... sorry, but my belly always has the final say! The mermaid card is so beautiful.... the aubergine - grape accents (food... see what I mean?!) - just perfect.... and absolutely yummo!ReplyDelete
