This is for today's SCS Featured Stamper challenge. Kim has such a wonderful gallery! It was a hard choice, but as I love Zindorfian scenes as much as Kim does, I just had to case this Zindorf-style card

I sponged the sunset with various Ranger Adirondack inks, then overstamped some braches and birds with black ink. The whole panel is covered with clear MicroBeads using double-sided clear adhesive foil. I added some "Markie'sMom-Dots" with stickles around the scalloped border, and as I don't have such a wonderful border punch as Kim has got, I just used my decorative blade on my paper trimmer. As I am a complete failure on sewing, I did it without any sewing, stitching or what else has to do with needles and yarn... LOL!
I hope you like the card! Perhaps this one was the last I could create for the next few weeks as my dh is just packing his suitcase to go to the hospital tomorrow to have a kidney transplantation. Although I know this is a big chance and luck for us, I'm very much afraid of all the things that might possibly go wrong. Please think of us. Thank you all!

I hope that everything is okay with your husband Christiane - you are in our thoughts. How are you doing? I hope that you have a chance to get some rest during this time. Please email me anytime if you need someone to talk to - you have a friend in Iowa :)
Best wishes to you and to your husband,

ps - your card is beautiful - it is a zindorfian masterpiece!

I just received your last email and wanted to just reach over the ocean and give you a hug.
I would love to send you a little something - could you please email me your address at

i hope and hope that your DH is doing well. I know what you mean about stamping at a time like this - but you know it is kind of like therapy. When my father was sick in June we were visitiing him in Maryland - and I felt like the only thing that helped my mini-depression was creating something pretty.... You are not alone during this time Christiane - I am totally here for you.

Much love,
