Default Hello from Switzerland

Coucou

My name is Conny, I live in Switzerland / Europe and my english is so bad
You see, I'm not only here to tell you, how great this forum is and that I started to stamp because YOU (no joke...) - I'm also here to learn to talk bit better English
When ever you've got the time and nervs to tell me my mistakes, please do... I'm here to learn.

I read here since - can't remember, a long time. Every morning, with my first coffee you are my compagnions.
I love the way you treat each other, I love the cards and all the other beautyful things you do.
I allways thought my cards aren't good enough and my english is too bad...
but a few threads really touched my heart and I really wished to write my 43 cents (Raeppli here in Switzerland, hihi)
Today I grabbed all my courage and tadadadadaaaaaaaaaaa here I am

Conny

Welcome aboard, Conny! One of the nicest things about creative expression is that it crosses language borders and goes straight to the heart! I, too, enjoy mornings on this site - it starts my day with such positive flow. Whether or not I get ideas from the galleries, I draw support from fellow crafters. I am still learning the acronyms used here, but those will come for you. Enjoy your experiences and I hope to see some posts of your work. Diane

You're so kind! Thanks to you all for the warm welcome.
It feels good to be a part of you.
Ironic: I started yesterday with the Teapot Challenge (I love layers over layers over layers and one more!) and crashed my Big Shot
I guess I start with an other challenge and I hope the card will be ok

Oh no!!! I'm so sorry your Big Shot broke . Especially at the Tea Party!!

I wanted to say welcome - I don't know which part of Switzerland you are from but we have friends who are just moving from Lausanne to Neuchatel - since we hope to visit them this year, I'm glad they're still in the French-speaking part , as French is my second language.
We have quite a lot of non-English speakers here, so don't worry at all about language! The language of card-making is world-wide.

I live in the german-speaking part of Switzerland.
Lausanne and Neuchatel, too, are such wonderful places!
Near Neuchatel is the Château de Grandson, shows Greta Garbos Rolls Royce I like this place very much (and oldtimers, too).


Lucky-me, I was able to take the die out of the broken Big Shot
A new Big Shot is allready ordered but my vendor told me, to enjoy the sun instead making cards he won't send it out that fast. Okay, so I enjoy the sun.
Funnywise I broke my papertrimmer, too... guys you should stop that...

I think your English is fine. We all love to learn about various craft supplies available all over the world. Since I started papercrafting (less then 4 months ago). I know that I will be buying local stamping supplies whenever I travel.

I keep checking for new posts throughout my day at work and it puts a little smile on my face.
