I am still here!

Happy Friday! Can`t believe how time flies! I am trying to get some things done at the moment. Some cleaning and sorting. We have so many construction zones at home and everything stands still all the time. Don`t like this! We are planning to renovate the attic to have more room, but nothing happens. Still problems with the offers from the craftspeople, not yet sure about the windows and stairs and stuff like this. We already started to clean out/sort out some things we stored in the attic, but now stuff is lying around everywhere. Like in the bedroom. Not very comfortable! But can`t do without creating, so here are two cards to share. The first one is for Jennifer McGuire`s Card Drive for Kids, combining Unity Stamps/Hero Arts Stamps and Cosmo Cricket paper:


Still trying to make more cards for the Kids, I want to send them in one package, because the shipping costs are the same for a certain size. Ok, and here is a Baby card I made for a magazine call, using some October Afternoon Paper:




So sorry that I am not visiting your blogs as often as I usually do - I hope to not miss too much of your wonderful creations and exciting news! I am planning a blogcandy and already have some stuff I want to give away - how about some Nesties? Stay tuned, I`ll be back with it, soon! And I wanted to ask my US and Canadian readers if you were interested in a CSN Stores give-away? I got an offer to do this on my blog, not sure if that`s reliable, I don`t know CSN Stores in Germany. Would be great if you let me know about that!
Have a wonderful Friday dear friends!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Oh, I'm so glad to see you back, Vanessa! We're thinking of renovating too, but I just hate all the cleaning before and after, plus the chaos in between. I know the end results will be worth it.

Your cards will surely bring a smile to those kids' faces.

Hi Vanessa, rather you than me with the sorting and renovating, it feels like it takes a life time to finish when you start jobs in the house....lol Beautiful cards especially the duck one, it's just so cute:)

Take care

Aloha Vanessa ~ you sound BUSY! Poor thing, it'll all be worth it in the end. Your cards are so bright and cheery and will make those kids smile! Love all the colors you used.

Im not sure what a CSN store is as we don't have that here in Hawaii either. So Im no help there. :o(

Deine Karten sind wunderschön, Vanessa.
Übrigens sieht es bei Euch bestimmt nicht so schlimm aus, wie bei uns. Wir werden bald (um den 1.3.) umziehen und es ähnelt schon einem kleinen Schlachtfeld hier. Aber dafür wird es in unserem neuen zu Hause viel schöner und bei Euch wird es, wenn alles fertig ist, ebenfalls wundervoll. :)

LG, Tina

Jessica said...

These cards are adorable, Vanessa!!! I really love the sunflower one. Too cute!!

Elise said...

Hello, darling, one! {Look at you, gorgeous!} Love the new pic! These cards have me a little woozy, with their crafty goodness! So impressed that you kicked these out, even with all that you have going on! No worries, with regards to the "visiting" {at least I can say it with my blog!} I totally understand being too swamped at times! You are such a love and WE already know that! I hadn't noticed your name pop up in my blog roll, but I'm glad I stopped in, regardless! Best of luck with all of your projects!
