Midweek Post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well. My computer and mouse are having hissy fits all day, everything is taking twice as long as it should! I hope I manage to get this post done and dusted. And my apartment needs dusting, too, got a visitor coming tomorrow!

This is a hybrid page made with a face I painted, a rusty photo taken by me, and some digital flowers and birds. Some people are rather disparaging of hybrid or digital art, but it is a lot of work and often takes as much time to make as a hands-on page. I love making things like this as it opens up many new possibilities to be creative. I am linking to Matilde's birds chllenge at AJJ, and to Rain's Tad, blooming flowers:

Today I have some pre-covid pictures to share, when wse visited the neighbouring town of Neuss, a town foundcd by the Romans way back when. We visited a flea market and walked through the crowded town, it feels so strange now to see people close together and not wearing masks:

If you look hard you can see me in this pic:

More flowers for Rain:

The figures on this building move and 'march' about every so many minutes:

And more blooming flowers for Rain's TAD:

Some funnies / thinkies:

I'm glad I managed to finish the post without further problems!

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

T sTands for Tuesday on Monday

Hi Everybody!

The weekend has once again disappeared in a flash and it's time for a new week - let's hope it will be a good one!

Today I have a hybrid piece made for Matilde's birds challenge at AJJ. The beautiful bird and nest was a freebie from  the Graphics fairy, the other pieces from my stash:

Michele's challenge at Tag Tuesday is to use bows and or buttons. My first tag is made for her challenge and for Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, which begins this evening.  Here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang. The background of the tag was cut from the packing of a delicious bar of chocolate I was given. The button at the top is a coffee cup, and at the bottom yet another one, stamped , fussy cut and covered with bronze glitter:

The second one has a pink bow:

Somehow I was out and about a lot this week, so there are lots of drinks. The first is an alcohol-free white beer:

And of course, lots of cappuccino:

And we had a wonderful meal one evening, Heike had salad with grilled chicken, and I had a baked potato with herb cream cheese and salad:

Love these flowers growing out of the caste wall:

Some thinkies / funnies:

And some photos taken in our little town:

Have a great week, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
