Wedding Anniversary card and Flower Birthday Card and a CAS Valentine´s Card

I need a birthday card (For Katharina) and one Anniversary card for my friend (Hermann and Early), also here is the Anniversary card I made today:

First of all I stamped many times the lovely stamp from Chocolate Baroque named Indian Textiles:

Then I colored the blue Navi with my new water color set from Japan, the other colors I used my copic marker.

this is the water color set I mean:

I choose the color combo from ColourQ #275:(sdh a. p.)

And I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #169:(sdh a. p.)

Here is the complete picture of my card:

Because this card is for Early my friend and she want to give it to her husband Hermann and I used this stamp for my first time (the beginning) also I join the challenge at The Male Room too. Hope this is manly enough :)

Challenges for my first card:

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Its a Guy Thing  (sdh a. p.)

Addicted to Stamp and More #127: Make Your Mark (I colored the blue Navi at main Image with my new water color set)(sdh a. p.)


My second card I made for Katharina, she has a birthday today and I was making this last night and make the picture for her in the morning...she likes this card..yeah...her favorite color is red also I nearly used all red on this card (with white also)

I stamped three times the Flower from The Alley Way Stamp from Set Tropical Hideaway and colored it with my new water color ink the green and red colors are water coloring. I am still no profi, forgive me please if it is not perfect :)

The sentiment is from Hero Arts, the red paper is from my old stash (since 2009) I have this paper not so much and so in love with the texture also I used it not so often :)

I used the sketch 

from Seize The Birthday Challenge:(sdh a. p.)

For my third card, I love to join the MUSE challenge #100, this is the inspiration card from Michele F:

This is my interpretation to her sweet and elegant card:

I want my HEART looks different, also I took my washi tape and did like this and drew the heart by my self:

Then cut the heart:

Stamped my sentiment on extra white paper and adhere the heart on my was finished around 8 minute...cause the card from Michele is easy to re-create....thanks for the inspiration dear Michele and love your sweet CAS valentine card :)

  20. wow Monika you are rocking the water colours. Such a detailed and beautiful card for ATSM, thanks for joining us. I adore you MUSE card, just beautiful and so creatively designed

  21. Hi Monika.. boy you are on a roll.. I love the cards. That paint is awesome and the design you chose to paint is perfect. Awesome work and colors and beautiful card.. I like the layout of all three cards and the second card is so sweet. The heart is a nice touch with the washi tape. I cant believe you don't have a die cutting machine. You have great use of scissors if your cutting those circles out.. Beautiful as always.

  22. Wow, Monika, you've been very busy! I love the gingham heart - I always think gingham looks warm and homey! So glad you played along with us at Muse this week!

  23. The colors you chose for your first card are so perfect for this Indian inspired motive! Love the colors!
    The image on your second looks like it's been painted on glass, and the color effect almost looks like painted glass when sun shines through it. Fabulous!
    Love the simplicity of your cute CAS love themed card. Great way to use washi tape!

  24. Fabulous cards, Monika. I love the texture behind your gingham heart and the embossing folder works brilliantly with your coloured image on your first card. Thanks for linking up at ATSM, Anita x
