I'm Back!!!! ...with some Splashing Puddles for Spring!

Hello My Dear Crafty and Stamper Friends:

After several days in bed with a very nasty flu/Walking Pneumonia... I am back here at my blog!
I have never seeing my hospital so crowded!!!...everybody was having the same symptoms, it is becoming an epidemy around here and my doctor was overwhelmed!!!

During the whole time I felt horrendously, with fever, cough, chills and zero energy to do anything...I spend so many days in bed that I almost forgot how to walk :)...I guess with "age" these type of flu's get you worse and worse!

I am slowly recuperating, not a 100% strong...
My routine is starting little by little taking place again but OMG, I have so many "things" piled up in my "TO Do" list...

So let's start with one of them!...my postings in my blogs....
The last time, that I blogged was during the "Blog Blitz" of Memory Box with the NEW winter 2015 release..., unfortunately I could not continue with the postings and the prizes for that week :(

So for this week, my plan is to continue showing you some of the NEW dies that I used in some cards...This particular project was posted at the French blog : "Un Brin de Créativité" for Memory Box.

This card is for Spring with the NEW and so cute die "splashing puddles", great die to make awesome backgrounds...

Simply, Die cut your different dies (more than once in many cases...)
The butterflies were cut apart from the "Kensington border" die...
First, Die cut several borders, sponge ink on the areas that you want and then cut with regular scissors each one of the butterflies ...
This is a great way to re-purpose your dies...always stretch the use of your dies!

TIP: double your dies, with 2 different color papers, to give a shadow/dimension effect (see the trees and the banners)...

It is going to take me some time to get back on track!!!

  2. cette réas est magnifique! bravo Bibiana!

  3. I agree with Crystal, wondered about the puddle die but when you see it used it really is very unique. Love the colors you used in your card very pretty.

    Hope you gain your strength back quickly, it really is terrible as you get older, Im fighting a stomach bug and its horrible.

  7. So sorry to read that you were very sick, dear Bibiana. I am spelling your name correctly now! That sounds like a nasty bug you had, and it will take some time to get back on your feet.

    1. Oups! j'ai accroché le mauvais bouton!
      Super retour en force, tu nous as manqué beaucoup !
      C'est long 10 jours sans notre DT

  16. The splashing puddles die looks amazing and I'm in love with your multi-colored butterflies. So pretty. Hugs!

  17. Hi Bibiana, so glad you are on the mend! I had been checking in here and noticed you weren't posting. I have not felt my best today, with a starting of a cold or flu I'm afraid. I am determined to take it easy and rest, so I am hopeful that this passes quickly!
    I admired this card on the other blog too. Such pretty butterflies and details! Love your color combo!
    Take care and get better!

  18. sacré retour dis moi , c'est très réussi !

  19. Lovely card.

    Oh my so sorry to hear that you were sick. Hope you are feeling much better. Prayers coming your way!

  20. Soo sorry to read, that you´ve been sooo unwell, and I really hope, it´s all over now, and that you´re on the right track to full recovery very soon. It´s absolut awfulto feel this way, I know only too well, as I´ve been there myself too and still not feeling all on top yet, just hope, I will before, we´re supposed to go and visit your wonderful country here in March.
    Your card is sooo beautiful, and I love this die here too, and it´s definitely on my wishlist to look for, when we get there, as it´ll take month before we see any of these new dies here yet, I´m afraid, so I´ve been very curious this time finding out, what to go for, when I get there, and this is definitely one of them among a few others too.
    Have a great week ahead now, where you´ll hopefully gain a lot of new strenght.

  21. Sorry to hear you've been poorly Bibiana best wishes for a speedy recovery
