Less is More #125 and a second card for Maddy


Its Jen Nelson's Birthday over at Less is More. And she tells us she likes fish, cats and butterflies! Since I just made some fish cards its now turn for a cat card. After all I just got this sassy cat stamp from Technique Tuesday - I had to use it!




The sentiment is taken from the same Technique Tuesday set and from Paper Smooches. The yellow and grey stripes I made with the Papertrey Watercolor Wonder set. 

Well Jen, Happy Birthday to you and I hope you like my card!

I am also linkin this card with the CAS on Sunday - One layer wonder challenge.

You may know already about Maddywho was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie. She now has a relapse and this card drive is going on to help her lift her spirits. I made this card in the flickr Hero Arts scramble last weekend and promised to send all my cards to Maddy. My first one she has already....On this card I just had to change the sentiment to fit - originally I had made a birthday card.....




There is a card drive going on at Simon Says - go and make a card for Maddy and link it up at SSS - perhaps you'll win the $100 shopping voucher!


Materials: circle die cut from Spellbinders,  Hero Arts Silhouette Bells stamp, Hero Arts Antique Engravings sentiment HA Sending Smiles Messages

Also die erste ist für meinen Geschmack ganz einfach genial!! Ich liebe dieses Motiv und die Farbwahl ist mal wieder erstklassig!
Die zweite, ein bisschen verträumter, ist auch sehr schön und sie wird Maddy bestimmt auch gefallen.
Mensch, was habe ich da gelesen!!! --- du fliegst ins Heimatland, wow.....ich beneide dich! Ich war zwar heuer schon dort aber wäre gleich nochmals Startbereit ....leider wird daraus nichts werden :((
Ich wünsche dir einen tollen und erholsamen Urlaub und vielleicht ist es gar nicht so verregnet. *daumendrück*

Bis bald Rosi
