Strange Things

1:08 PM

... happen around here - but in very positive way :-)

  • First of all, there's a new, official company guideline telling me that social networking (including blogging) is a good thing. So typing up blog posts during lunch time should be a good thing now *g*.
  • I entered a wedding card into a "Pink Challenge" and won some of the cute Cosmo Cricket "Early Bird" designer papers over at teenas-tipps!! Never ever did I win something before... *happydance**. Oh, how I love the Early Bird collection - though I'm definitively not an early bird myself...
  • Ha, and than - it's going to be even better - there is the one-submission-wonder: Four weeks ago, for the first and up to now only time, I submitted another wedding card to a (or better say the one and to my knowledge only) German Scrap mag called Scrap-Art-Zine. It is very, very likely that it will be printed :-)) I can't wait to share the photos in the fall!

Oooh, *happy sigh*... okay, I have also a card to share today. It is also - you can guess it - a wedding card! A bit shabby and a bit of glitter and pearls...

Since there is no such thing as a baby or wedding shower in Germany, I thought it's okay to enter a wedding card for the current Caardvarks challenge (please delete my link over there if not). Here's a detail shot to show you that the patterned paper is all glittery:

The idea for that came from a recent blog entry of Kelly Marie (see here). I filled a Mini Mister with some water and added a bit of the Perfect Pearls powder, than spritzed it all over the piece of patterned paper.

On another note, Kate and Steph (she finally open a darling new blog) from "A Passion for Papertrey" have some wonderful PTI giveaways in store for you: the Everyday Classics Limited Edition Anniversary Stamp Set & Hodge Podge Paper Pad!! You have until August 9, 2009 to enter. And please scroll down, too, to see their fantastic cards! Not to mention Steph's latest entry - I just love the card she made for today!

Last but not least, I found my way to the great blog of Karen during the PTI Blog Hop. I'm excited to announce, she awared me the "One Lovely Blog" Award :-) Yeah, my first blog award!! Thanks, Karen! I would love you to visit her blog - I was drooling over when I saw e.g. her über-cute Snoopy bookmark :)

Following are the deeds of the award:

  • Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you have newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Okay, as for the last bullet point, I would spontaneously like to nominate the following ladies - not only because they're creative and inspiring people but also because...
... I'll think about more nominees tonite - lunch time's over and we'll have to attend a global webcast... Have a great day, today and thanks for stopping by!
