Smiling stars of February!

Hello everyone,

thanks for visiting our blog today :)
Macrh 8th already - oh my - where did time go?
Honestly - I have no idea - I feel the month just began.

Last month we started a link-up tool on our sidebar and  picked some featured artists of the month - and this is so much fun - because (even If I don't comment on all the entries due to a lack of time) we LOVE your projects.
We're featuring some of you who played along and also draw one random winner who gets a surprise pack of goodies :)
The linky for March will be up very soon - we'd love to see your Create A Smile projects made in March here (you can also link up the projects that you made during the last week)!

So, here the are... our

of February;

(note: They come in no particular order)

1) Sonja
Sonja's card combining all the Create A Smile freebies on one card was love at first sight. I love her color choice and how she added the sentiment (friends like you are invaluable).

2) Gisela
Gisela is a garden- and flower lover - and she often takes time to share her projects over on facebook (thank you, Gisela!)
This little Pillowbox using Botanical Love is super cute and I love the bold red with the soft flowers.  Also - seeing projects other than cards is awesome and inspiring! :)

Geldgeschenke verpacken

I first saw this card on Instagram (yes - please please tag us if you share your CASstamps card in Instagram - we love love love seeing your projects over there (I often flip through Instagram when I'm on  my way to work by train or when I'm in bed - hehe) and this card instantly caught my attention. I'm a sucker for rainbows and high-contrast - so what's not to love about that card using our friendship-chipboard?

A big thank you for sharing your art, Ladies!
Here's a badge that you can proudly display on your blogs:

Last but not least it's time for a random winner of some goodies.....

What a cute card combining our stamps with our Friends from The Alley Way Stamps and going all green. Congrats, Birka! Please send a message to info{at) to claim your prize!

So many German designers this time. We'd love to see more international friends link up as well. What are you waiting for? Maybe you're the next winner :)

Have a great week-end!
