Tag for April and in the garden

Hi everyone!
I hope you all had some great easter days. We had....The weather was not so good, very cold, but luckily no rain or snow! There was a lot to do in April, like taking care of my parents in law's home for 2 weeks, so i had no time to make the Tim Holtz tag. But today i made it.
And, lucky me..., this weeks challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is: anything goes. So I'd like to join this challenge with my belated tag....

I have been to a garden fair in Berlin in April to do some shopping for plants. Here is what i bought. 2 ferns, 3 hostas and a Pulmonaria

  And, because thats the reason I can´t craft so much sometimes, some pics from the garden.

B is for...

is the new challenge at Simon Says Stamp. For me B is for Birthday Card.
I like making cards since i started crafting. And for me it is very important to give a friend or familymember a selfmade card for his or her birthday.
Here is a simple birthday card i made for this weeks challenge.

My next Tag...

.. is finished. After I worked in the garden today I took some time for crafting. I worked on a Mini Album, but it is not finished yet.
This month i was a lot faster with the Tim Holtz Tag for March!!! It was very easy to make.

The background looks great with the technique Tim uses! A must try!
To fit in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp I used some green color for the background, because the challenge is called: A hint of clover.

Hi friends

today i finished the Tim Holtz Tag for February. Just in time to upload it on his site. With my Tag i would like to join the Simon Says Stamp challenges for this week too. It has no rules this week...
So as i have not all the cool stuff Tim uses, i tried my best using what i have on hands.
Here is my Tag.
I hope you like it a bit ;-)

 And now i will visit Tims Blog and the SSS Blog to get a little inspiration from all the other entries.

New year. first post...

...Hi my scrappy friends out there. I am back in the new year with my first project.
It is the Tim Holtz tag for january.

Now, with more time and less work, i hope to have more time for crafting, to try new recipes (baking and cooking), for the garden and for relaxing... I started with making new cookies for christmas. Some Swedish Butterballs, After Eight cookies and Snowflakes. Snowflakes are my favorite, followed by Swedish Butterballs. Both are so yummy...

The next new recipe i want to try is a WeightWatchers cheesecake with mixed berries. I will try a lot WW recipes during the following weeks. For my birthday i plan to only have WW things on the table.

Yesterday i started with cleaning my craft room. I sorted out some things i did not use a while (or never!!!), like decoupage papers, glass nuggets, translucent paper, newspapers, glitter.... I definitely need more space in my cupbords. Maybe i will get a little money for this.

Thats all for now. Thank you for stopping by. I hope to be back soon.
