I'm back! With a fern card...

Thank you so much for your patience. After my return from Germany I did not have any mojo. It was worse than other years. I even played with the idea of giving up blogging! I realized how much time I spend just commenting... But then missed you all, started making a few cards and now I'm back.

Over at Time Out Challenges we are to CASE one of Cornelia's cards and it motivated me to take out this tree ring stamp AND the fern die from my NBUS box. To be honest I have two boxes, one for stamps (which is bursting at it's seams) and one for dies. Why do I keep buying stuff, people??? Stamp companies, if you are reading this, please stop bringing out such fun products that I can't resist! Bloggers, please stop inspiring and tempting me! (Just kidding, of course!)

First Cornelia's fun card:

And here is my take:

Stamps: Concord & 9th (treerings), SSS (sentiment)
Die: Memory Box (fern)

I cut out the fern from a scrap leftover from the first card in this post. Have I ever mentioned how much I love ferns? That's why I really wanted the Memory Box die (which is probably discontinued by now) and now I am so happy to have finally used it. As well as the tree rings and the sentiment was also in that NBUS box. I think this would be a good card for my husband's birthday, hmmm...

Hope to be back soon with another card and maybe some pictures from Germany...

Be well,


  1. Welcome back!
    Ich hoffe du hattest eine schöne Zeit in Deutschland? Deine Ideen sind ganz bestimmt auch wieder mit zurück gekommen, manchmal merken sie nur nicht, das die Ferien beendet sind *zwinker*
    Bitte nicht aufgeben, deine Karte heute ist doch wieder so hübsch geworden!
    Farn ist wirklich ein faszinierendes Gewächs...
    Ganz lieben Gruß

  2. And here I am, finally getting back into reading blog posts after a year! So glad you decided to continue blogging as i love your style.

  3. Those ferns look incredible! (I like them everywhere but not to much in the garden...) And perfect with the tree-rings background! Thank you for joining us at TIME OUT!

  4. Your card is wonderful. Love that bright green fern, and especially love how you did your sentiment. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

  5. Welcome back, Susanne ... so pleased to read Monsieur Mojo returned to keep you company ... and to keep you blogging! What a spectacular and striking card ... those variegated ferns are perfect against the wood slice ... and that's such an ideal sentiment to go with this natural wonder! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

  6. Wie, Du hast nur 2 Schachteln???? Ich glaub' du musst mal mehr shoppen, ha ha! Ist ja toll, dass ich Dich animieren konnte eine Karte zu machen. Super schön ist sie geworden! Jetzt muss ich Dich nur noch zu Weihnachtskarten machen stimulieren - das probiere ich ja schon ewig ohne Erflog :( ....

  7. Welcome back Susanne!! So happy that you are back making cards and having fun with it. LOVE this card ... seriously, LOVE it! xx

  8. Wow!! Beautiful. I love your interpretation

  9. You're not just back, Susanne, you are back with a BANG!! Your card is utterly sensational in every way!! Way to go using your NBUS! You are in the same situation as me and you understand why I never run out of saying NBUS for my creations! Some people have asked how I can still have any left. Wait. What? Oh, my, I wish I had their resolve to not put anything more in a cart for a coupla years! Not likely, lol!! Welcome back!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Ouf ! On a eu chaud ! Heureusement que tu n'as pas arrêté de blogger ! Les retours de vacances sont toujours difficiles et plein de questionnement.... mais franchement je suis heureuse de te revoir parmi nous, j'adore ton style ! Et cette nouvelle carte que tu nous offres aujourd'hui le confirme encore une fois ! Elle est tout simplement magnifique, simple et délicate à la fois ! Une gagnante ! Bienvenue de nouveau parmi nous ! Bonne semaine, bises !

  11. Welcome back, Susanne! Hope you had a great time in Germany! Well, your mojo is certainly back--an absolutely wonderful card! Love the ferns & love the quote! I know what you mean about time on the computer. Hubby made a comment the other day about how I always have my laptop on. I'm typing comments & listening to whatever he has on TV. One of the reasons I don't take crafting supplies with me when we're out in the travel trailer, as I figure he deserves all my attention once in awhile--haha! I'm still looking for that blog writing genie, but seriously--can't give up my friends so will keep blogging. Glad you missed us, so didn't give up your blog!

  12. Quel belle carte, ça aurait été vraiment dommage de ne pas continuer! Malheureusement je l'ai vu trop tard, mais je pense que je n'aurais pas eu les temps - je revenais des vacances aussi et il m'a fallu un certain temps pour me remettre dans le bain! 😉


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! They make my day!
