Simon Says Wednesday (Anything goes)

Hello - is anyone still out there...?

No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth...
Oh, you didn't even notice that I wasn't posting and commenting...
Oh, well, anyways we were in NYC last week and my time on the computer was very limited. We are very lucky to have my brother-in-law and family there who are very kind and gracious hosts. It was a lot of fun but now I am back and even have a card for you. I made a thank you card for them and finally used my Memory Box skyline dies that I've had for a while but were still NBUS (never before used stuff).

The sky is made with watercolor crayons and baby wipes, my go-to technique. The windows are different shades of yellow which is hard to see, made with the same technique. The moon is hand drawn with a silver pen. The saying is from an old Stampin' Up set. 

I am entering this one at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes.

And now please help me welcome a new follower:

Manuela from elasdistrict
I "met" her over at Our Beautiful World. She takes gorgeous photos, posts quotes every Sunday, and makes fun cards. Click on the link and go for a visit! 

Manuela, thank you for joining me and I hope you will like what you see. Now, I usually welcome new followers with a quote and hope you don't already know this one by Basho:

Sitting quietly
Doing nothing
Spring comes
And the grass grows by itself.

Hope to see you all soon again,

Hi Susanne, glad you had a good trip, this is a great card. The colouring technique looks very effective. I'm always amazed at the ever growing uses for baby wipes! Cathy x

Welcome back Susanne. You brought a little of the city back in your card I see we are both using our Thursday night to post since we aren't stamping together. See you soon.

I missed you, Susanne! How fun that you got to spend time with family in NYC! Your thank you card could NOT be more perfect for them! I love it!! Thank you for the sweet link to me re NBUS. Now I have added water color crayons and baby wipes to my to-do NBUT list. I've heard of it before, but haven't actually tried it yet! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell

Welcome back, Susanne! What a great thank you card for city-dwellers ... love the glow of the lights in those layered buildings! Anita :)

Glad you're back (as I mentioned, I was 'this close' to sending a scouting party out to find you!) and that your time in NYC was fabulous! Your thank you card is amazing - a pretty silhouette of the city-skyline, twinkling lights, a slip of moon...your hosts will love it, as do I! Hugs~c

Super, diese Karte - ich sehe NYC hat Dich inspiriert! Mir gings auch nicht besser - hinke immer noch hinterher mit all den Sachen, die ich machen muss....Warst beim Ink Pad?

Hallo Susanne, schön wieder was von dir zu sehen und zu lesen :-) Mit der Begrüßung ist ja wirklich sehr lieb von Dir. Das Gedicht kannte ich bisher noch nicht, es ist sehr schön und ich finde das müsste man auch echt öfters mal machen!! Ich hab es auch schon in meiner Sammlung verewigt.
Die Karte ist ja perfekt zum Anlass und auch sehr schön. Die Technik habe ich bisher noch nicht ausprobiert werde es aber mal bei gelegenheit versuchen.
(Ich weiß gar nicht ob deine Frage nach dem Papier schon beantwortet habe.... ich sag ja mit den "Flashes" ist echt so eine Sache!!! Das Papier ist von Rössler, ich habe es mal in einem Schreibwarenladen gekauft der ziemlich gut sortiert war und eine riesen Auswahl hatte, schau doch mal auf der webseite)
Was ein riesen comment ;-)
