Happy easter to all my lovely blog readers and friends. We had already a lot of fun with the kids looking for chocolate bunnies and little presents in the garden. It is such a magical time when children are still young and believe in things like the easter bunny, Santa Clause or the tooth fairy. I enjoy such moments immensely.

Schöne Ostern wünsche ich euch allen. Wir hatten schon sehr viel Spaß beim Osternest suchen im Garten :) Was für eine magische Zeit, wenn die Kinder noch klein sind und an Figuren wie den Osterhasen, das Christkind und den Nikolaus glauben. Ich genieße solche Augenblicke unheimlich :)

Today's challenge at the High Hopes blog is "Pierce it!" Little Showgirl is coloured with water soluble pens and Twinkling H2Os. I cut her out with Spellbinders new Labels 4 Nestabilities and did some faux stitching around her. I used my Fiskars lace border punch again and did some paper piercing on the pink cardstock. All papers are from My Mind's eye (I soooo love the Laundry collection, all the glitter and the heavy quality).

Das Thema dieser Woche auf dem High Hopes blog is "Paper Piercing, also das Papier mit einer Nadel zu bearbeiten". Das kleine Showgirl habe ich mit Aquarellstiften und Twinkling H2Os coloriert und dann mit Spellbinders neuen Labels 4 Nestabilities ausgestanzt. Runherum habe ich dann mit meiner Nadel den Rand nachgestochen. Ich habe auch meinen Fiskars lace border punch wieder verwendet und auch noch rund um den rosa cardstock paper piercing gemacht. Alle Motivpapiere sind von My Mind's Eye, aus der Laundry Line Collection (dieses Papier ist einfach sensationell, all der Glitzer und die dicke Qualität).

The embellishment inside the bow and the charm chain was send to me by my dear friend and WoJ DT Bev (together with a lot of other goodies :) Thanks Bev, you are the best! Bev also provided a tutorial on her blog about how she attatches charms with jump rings and chain, which was very helpful for me, maybe you want to check it out.
I would also like to enter my card to the Stamps Something challenge with the theme "Shapes" and the Creative Inspirations blog with the theme " Scallops". Wohooo - 3 challenges with 1 card, seems like I am on a roll...haha
Enjoy your easter holiday and thanks for stopping by!
Das Embellishment innerhalb der Masche wurde mir von meiner lieben Freundin und WoJ DT Mitglied Bev geschickt (zusammen mit vielen anderen Goodies). Lieben Dank Bev, du bist ein Schatz!! Bev hat auf ihrem blog ausserdem gezeigt wie sie Charms mit Hilfe von Ringen und einer Kette an brads befestigt, was mir sehr geholfen hat. Vielleicht wollt ihr es ja auch versuchen :)
Meine Karte möchte ich ausserdem bei der Stamps Something challenge mit dem Thema "Formen" und dem Creative Inspirations blog mit dem Thema "Scallops" einreichen. Wohooo, 3 challenges mit 1 Karte, ich bin wohl so richtig in Schwung...haha
Ich wünsche euch einen schönen Ostersonntag und danke euch fürs Reinschaun!

Lieben Dank, dass ihr auf meinem Blog vorbei geschaut habt und euch die Zeit nehmt mir einen Kommentar zu hinterlassen. Ich weiss wie kostbar "Zeit" ist, deswegen weiss ich jede einzelne Nachricht sehr zu schätzen.

Ich bemühe mich sehr, euch einen Gegenbesuch abzustatten, auf eure Fragen (direkt hier in den Kommentaren) zu antworten und bin auch via Email gerne für euch da.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I know best how valuable "time" is, therefore I appreciate your comments immensely.

I try my best to visit your blogs, to answer your questions right here in the comment section or via email. But you all know how stressful life can be, with two children, household and work. Sometimes, life doesn't go as planned.
Please bear with me!
