For my Brothers Birthday...

...and I really hope that he doesn't read this :D I made a Birthday Tag for him using the alcohol inc technics by Tim Holtz. A Little bit distress ink and stamps. Et voila- here we go! My brother is getting 22 years old, holy where the time goes? What about the small little kiddo with the blond hair that always made my life harder as a little bro? :D I know that he will like his card :) Happy Birthday on the 9th July bro, You're one of the most important people in my life! I love you! <3

Besides I figured out some facts about my actual card making. For every card that I do right now I spend between four and eight hours. In the last month we paid fricking many Euros for the cuttlebug, dies, embossing sheets, cards, Stickers...  Every card is made with embellishements that are not bought in a craftshop, because they are special items my gran and me collect through the years. This for example were Earrings, Pieces of bracelets and Chains or Buttons. So if you are in the lucky position to receive one of my cards, you can be sure to have at least one really old or really unique embellishement on your card. Cardmaking for me is pure feeling. If a card is fast done it's ok, but I want to take my time, I take a look through all my crafting stuff, match the papers, colors, etc. And I really wish that more people appreciate handmade stuff that comes from the heart. You can't buy the feeling that it needs to make a personal card!

Happy crafting!
