Another day has sped by. I had my usual walks, and had to go into Düsseldorf by tram to collect something. There is still a lot of devastation to see, and teams of people were busy working everywhere cutting down branches, digging out giant tree-roots, repairing roofs etc. The trees all look very straggly where they have had to lop off so many branches to make them safe. The trams are running again, with some difficulties, but it will still take a long time till things get back to normal. This afternoon I made some more jam, as apricots are on offer this week, I will show pictures when they have cooled off and been labeled.
Today I am showing 2 cards I made as part of my DT projects for Gecko Galz.
For the background I used masked beauty from the carnival paper pack. The image of the little girl was from a GG freebie sheet - I had to use stuff I had, as that was the time my printer gave up the ghost. I matted both the image and the BG paper with black card and glued them onto a 6x4" card blank. I used a flower and a leaf as embellishments.
(Material list: card-blank, image, BG paper, black card for matting, embellishments)
The second card has been made using the same paper. The good thing about the paper sets is that they can be printed out in any size. The image is from the vintage dominoes collage sheet, and printed onto tissue.

Linking to Simon's Monday challenge, anything goes.
As always, a few pictures taken in the past days. The first one shows the street where I live, and I must praise all the garden owners who have their gardens clean and tidy again after the storm - it must have been a lot of work.
The view from my balcony yesterday evening:
The horses do not seem to be worried about the wrecked trees, they just keep on grazing as always....
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
