Birthday Card for my Mom and calling DETRA!!!

Happy Sunday! Brrr! Fall arrived here officially. With stormy, cold, wet weather. Did I say cold already? I love to have four seasons, but I am definitely a summer girl. My feet are always cold, as well as my nose and my hands. Low bloodpressure. But I don't want to bore you with this stuff! I am here to share a card with you. My Mom's birthday was on Friday and I made her a card (and if you are interested what else I had for her, I made her a plant arrangement for her doorstep and three variations of chocolate bark and a self-cooked dinner yesterday). So here is the card:

I die-cut that strip, stamped and heat-embossed the Harvest Berries image, inked the edges of the strip and stamped the background text. Then I adhered it to the card, stamped the sentiment and adhered the rhinestones. Clean, simple and elegant. I love to combine text and botanical images, it just works always!

Now to Detra. You were the winner of the Paper Crafts 12 Days of Christmas blog hop giveaway! Please contact me by Monday or I will draw a new winner! Thank you!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs and Love,

Hi Vanessa - it has been a while..... I´m "fighting" to find my mojo again after a loooooong summer break and I haven´t been blogging for quite some time now. Lots and lots of great projects at your blog since my last visit. Nice to be back ;) HUGS, Sanne
