Schneller Gruß / Quick hello

Für eine Freundin, die Fische liebt, kommt es gesundheitlich gerade knüppeldick. Aus der Ferne erreichte mich die Nachricht etwas spät, so dass ich schnell eine kleine Überraschung schicken wollte – und schnell musste auch eine Karte her.

A friend who loves fishes has it coming at her thick and fast health-wise these days. I got the news from far away with some delay so I wanted to act quickly, sending her a little surprise – and needed a quick card to go with it.


Ich glaube, die beiden schaffen es, ihr ein Lächeln abzuringen! Schönes Wochenende!

I think this duo will manage to bring a smile to her lips! Enjoy your weekend!


Get well soon – CPS 156

I have to say I was downright exhausted after two intense weeks of being a couch potato watching whatever Olympic competition would only remotely fit my 40-hour work week. Coming down from that adrenaline high of the hockey final probably did its part in doing me in. So at the beginning of the week I didn’t think I’d be participating in any challenge. And now there’s two! Well, there’s this week’s CPS sketch (to the left) and then there’s Delia. Delia is not a challenge – that is: I doubt it or at least I can’t decide on that as I’ve never met her 😉 – but she’s a girl who fell sick with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and has a friend who wanted her to be inundated with get well wishes from all over the place: Dustin Pike. I realize I’m awfully late with this as it was started about a month ago but decided „So what!“… Cards are always welcome. And I just loved the owls he created for this particular purpose as Delia loves owls! If there’s anybody out there who hasn’t found them by now, you can download them here. But now here’s the card:

Get well soon bunny – CPS 155, part 2

While the ladies‘ cross country relay competition is going on, let me quickly post a second entry into this week’s CPS competetion. Then I have to return to keeping my fingers crossed for the German team 🙂

I just have to find a better place where to take pictures of my cards…
