Merry Christmas!

Vom Himmel Hoch

Vom Himmel hoch
kommt nichts mehr her.
Dort war schon Ausverkauf -
der Laden ist leer.
Die Engel und alles,
was da sonst noch schwebt,
hat bisher nur
für die Menschen gelebt.
Immer im Dienst
und ständig auf Trapp,
vorbei mit dem Fliegen,
die Flügel sind schlapp.
Erfüllten viel mehr
als nur das Soll.
Die Himmelsbewohner
haben die Schnauze voll.
Gott sagt, sie sollen
erst dann wieder beginnen,
wenn die Menschen sich
endlich darauf besinnen,
dass das All, die Natur,
der Tag, die Nacht
und die Welt nicht allein
nur für sie gemacht.

In diesem Sinne wünsche ich allen ein frohes Weihnachtsfest und alles Gute für das neue Jahr.

The last roses

Hey everyone out there!

I have not been here for a while now. As always, there is much to do in the garden during summer.
I tried to grow some potatoes and carots, chard and radish in big pots and it worked.
Today i cut the last roses in my garden. Don´t they look beautiful. I love roses.

Here are some photos from our garden this summer.

Some of my hostas.

 The tearing heart.

 My rhododendron.

Two of the many columbine that grow here.
I have them in different colors.

 My Eden rose

The big bags where i planted my potatoes. Next year i need bigger ones!

I not only spent a lot of time in the garden, i also spend a lot of time crocheting. I made 3 hats (one for our niece and 2 for our cute little nephews that where born in Juli) a scarf(for our niece) and some granny squares, that i´d like to use for a blanket.

I and i found a wonderful blog that i love to read.
Carolyn and her husband have such a beautiful garden and so many vintage things in their house. 
I could watch the photos every day. I wish i would find such nice thing here.
I hope that i have more time for papercrafting soon, so i can share something with you.
On Saturday i will goo to a craft and hobby fair with a friend. I hope i will find some of the things i am looking for.
And on monday i will go to a concert of my favourite band: SUEDE.

See you soon!!!

More Cards and a challenge


Today I would love to show you some cards i made.
The first one is for the SSS challenge: The button.
I used the buttons as flower centers.
I tried to give the card some dimension by using different sized foam pads for the background papers.

I used Prima Flowers and Bling.

 A birthday card with Prima paper and Flower, Bling and ribbons. I love the flowers on the paper!!!

And another birthday card with movable tags and a hidden  message.
I think this could be a card for a man.

Tim's tag for June

Tim's tag for June 2013 is online and i did mine today. I had to improvise a lot.
I have no big dragonfly stamp, so i used his Rock Heart.
I have no Distress Markers. I used water color pens.
I have no big background stamp. I used different stamps to create the background.
I have no Distress Paint, I only used a pad and 2 Distress Stains to color the tag.

But after all, here is my Tag.

Garden pictures

Hi everyone,

We are back from our vacation in Egypt. The weather there was wonderful. Sun every day and more than 32 °C. We were so lazy and didn´t do anything. Just laying in the sun on the beach.

Now, back in Germany for nearly two weeks i get crazy because of the bad weather. Nearly every day it rains. I miss the sun so much. I can´t work in my garden a lot, but i have to!!!

I hope its getting sunny very soon so we can enjoy our garden.

But even in the rain the garden looks wonderful.



Have a nice weekend!!!

Tag for January

In 2013 Tim Holtz is doing a Tag every month again.
Here is what i made out of the January Tag.

Lace Love...

... is the theme for this weeks challenge over at Simon says stamp and show.
I tried my best on this challenge to use the lace. I love lace and have a hole bunch of it, but its somehow hard for me to find a good way to use it. Normally i use it as a border like in my card i made today.
As Easter is not far away, i started to make easter cards.
For this i used some rose cardstock and colored the edges with the Vintage Photo Distress Pad. The paper in the background is from Primas Tea Thyme collection that i also colored the same way.
I used a 3-dimesional picture....and some pink lace from a Deco Shop.
In my opinion there are too less scrapbooking papers with the easter theme.....What do you think?!
