UMPLE-MI INIMA... - FILL MY HEART...

TWO STEPS FROM HELL - Fill My Heart

abia aştepţi să te bucuri de mugurii, de iarba, şi de soarele din ceruri...
de prea multe ori uiţi că 
primăvara din tine e mult mai frumoasă
pentru că TU eşti primăvară...

pentru că, pentru cineva, eşti şoaptă, şi ploaie, şi leagăn,... şi primăvară...
tu EŞTI primăvară...

umple-mi inima... cu primăvara ta...




you can hardly wait to enjoy the buds, the grass, and the sun from the heavens...
too often you forget that
the spring from within you is much more beautiful
because YOU are spring...


because, for someone, you are whisper, and rain, and swing,... and spring...
you ARE spring...


fill my heart... with your spring...
.

Goodmorning all, thank you everyone for the great cards you've made for the last challenge. Thanks also to those who want to join our GDT for the next couple of months, you really made it very difficult for us ...It is going to be a tough decision, we love to have you all, but for now we are looking for 2 or 3 GDT members ;o) You can find the new GDT on this blog Sunday, March 4.

This challenge will be sponserd by Krea Teja and the price you can win is a suprice ... believe me it is a great one ;o)


Krea ‘Teja’ – hobbystudio is an online webshop with a history of 18 years in the hobby business and 10 years in the cardmaking business. When you visited one of the larger Trade fairs in the Netherlands, Belgium or Germany you must have ran in to our booth (in Belgium and Germany that’s our purple tent). For the last 5 years we specialized in stamping. We have and had a wide variety of stamp manufacturers in our range of products. Over the years we have tried many techniques of colouring the stamps. We are now offering the complete range of 198 colours of Twinkling H2O’s. A wonderful method of colouring your stamped images. We are always looking for new ideas in the cardmaking business. That’s why we will add a few new companies to our extensive line of products. Just keep visiting our webshop for the coming weeks. You certainly have to take a look at what the Krea ‘Teja’ Team is designing with various products on our team blog. Have fun with the challenge !

The sketch is made by Marion and the TWIST for this challenge is 
'Baby it is cold outside, make a winter theme card'.

MOST WANTED BLOG...

                                               Powered by BannerFans.com


... zilele trecute, din senin, am primit acest mesaj, sub forma unui comentariu la ultima postare:

Vă citim şi urmărim blogul de ceva timp, îndeajuns de mult încât să avem bucuria şi convingerea că blogul dumneavoastră merită, pe deplin, să fie premiat cu ''Premiul Most Wanted Blog'', datorită pasiunii, imaginaţiei, talentului, originalităţii, şi creativităţii dumneavoastră, dar mai ales datorită valorii morale şi educative pe care pagina dumneavoastră o promovează în blogosfera românească! Vă rugăm să ne anunţaţi dacă acceptaţi premiul sau nu, accesând acest link: Premiul MWB! Puteţi afla mai multe despre MWB, convingeţi-vă de seriozitatea şi pasiunea noastră în a promova bloguri de calitate! Aţi primit premiul MWB, pentru că unul dintre autorii noştri v-a recomandat cu plăcere!

... desigur, fiecare premiant a primit acest mesaj ...acesta a fost răspunsul meu:

sunt surprins (ca să nu spun şocat) pentru acest premiu...
nu sunt nici dintre fotografii extraordinari ai momentului, nici dintre cei ce scriu cu măiestrie...
mă îmbrac şi eu în cuvinte, culori, şi acorduri care îmi plac
nu cunosc această comunitate care m-a onorat, dar primesc cu emoţie onoarea ce mi se oferă...
aveţi grijă de voi...
vă mulţumesc încă o dată

... a few days ago, out of the blue, I received this message, as a comment to my last post:
We read and follow your blog for some time, long enough to have the joy and to be convinced that your blog fully deserves to be awarded with "The Most Wanted Blog Prize", because of your passion, imagination, talent,  originality, and your creativity, and mostly because of the moral and educational  values that your pages are promoting in the Romanian blog community! Please announce us if you accept the prize, on the MWB Prize link! You may learn more about MWB, and you can reassure of our seriousness and passion for promoting quality blogs! You were awarded with MWB because one of our authors gladly recommended you!
"MWB doesn't look for fame, doesn't look for numbers, nor statistics; we are looking for originality, talent, and passion; and everyone who accepts the prize is doing tha, especially those who choose to become members or authors of MWB, because beyond the blog, life is the one who is speaking!"
... of course, everyone who was awarded received this message... this was my reply:

I am surprised (if not shocked) for this award...
I am neither a great photographer, nor a mastery writer...
I'm just wearing myself in words, colours, and tunes that I like...
I don't know the community that awarded me, but I take with deep emotion the honour that is given to me...
take care of you...
thank you once again

ERIN WASSON: RULES OF COOL



Erin Wasson (born January 20, 1982 in Irving, Texas) is an American model and occasional stylist and designer. She is of German and Irish ancestry. Personally, I am in favour of her acclaimed "effortless style" but everybody knows that it requires a lot of effort to get this look. Anyway, she is totally right when she says that personality and attitude are essencial ingredients for being cool. Everybody loves people that can express themselves beyond their looks.

To be honest, my style is a bit different from hers, I don't feel confortable "going into a party and being the less dressed up and assuming that everything is ok, just because I feel comfy!" No way. In opinion, what makes you cool is following your sense of style, using your brain and having some sense of humour. This is cool.  Have a look at her profile:


Lives Now: Los Angeles, CA
Status: Bad girl, Established
Known for: Legs, Mole, Style
 
Agencies: IMG
 
Muse for: Alexander Wang
 
Friends: Daria Werbowy, Ksubi designer George Gorrows, Angela Lindvall, Dewi Driegen, Jessica Miller, Carmen Kass
 
Model Turned Stylist:  (Alexander Wang), jewelry designer
 
Interests: Basketball, Surfing
