  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother in law. She's out of pain now, but I'm sure you'll all miss her. xxx

  2. So sorry for your loss Monika, keeping you and your family in my prayers. Your cards are all beautiful.

  3. Hi Monika, hugz. Love the cards. That car is great. Love how you make your own background papers. So creative. Hugz

  4. Sorry about you MIL, must be hard for you all, even though it might have been expected.
    You rock color challenges, Monika. The Bugaboo card is so cool and contemporary feminine, super colors! I really like how you used the Color Throwdown colors as well, it's the colors I have on my desk right now, but lacking color challenge mojo so not sure it will lead to anything... And that masculine card of yours? Wow! What a fabulous take on the sketch, I love it.
    I got your letter today, thank you SO much!!

  5. Oh Monika, das tut mir sehr leid, dass deine Schwiegermutter verstorben ist. aber du hast schon recht: jetzt hat sie keine Schmerzen mehr und wir hoffen, dass es ihr gut geht.
    Sehr schöne Karten sind dir wieder gelungen. Diese junge Dame mit all den Taschen vom Einkauf ist DER Knaller!!! Klasse.
    Auch die männliche Karte gefällt mir sehr gut. Autos passen da immer.
    Auch die Geburtstagskarte ist für einen Mann geeignet.
    Alles in allem: gut gemacht, weiter so!!!
    Liebe Grüße,
