Simply thinking of you

Sketch from Critters Challenge



The Outlawz Tuesdday colour challenge

Good Day

These are just one of those weeks were everything else needs attention accept crafting. Today I just had to make this project, since I have a friend in hospital whose moral is a bit low. Though I'm a bit frustrated since I don't have any craft blades left. I went shopping but not a single shop in town has any stock available. Must say I really felt lost.
Back to my project. This is a freebie from Beccy's place and she challenged us to make a project using one of the freebies of the month for a project. I played around with leftovers in my stash, like the blue paper and ribbons. I just love the dash of red in the inspirational photo and it made the rose pop, by giving it the touch of red. On the back there is a lovely Irish blessing.

Challenges I'm joining:
The Outlawz Tuesday 26 February Colour challeng with the twist of shine
Beccy's Place #4 Birthday bash - Use any of February freebies
Critter Challenge #153 - Sketch
Divas by Design 27/2 - Anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown #136 - You are on my mind.

Thank you and have a lovely day!

Don't feel like dancin'

Tammy's Scrappin Corner
The Outlawz Tuesday Colour
Mazy Art Dancin Teenager

Good Day

Yes, I don't feel like dancing what so ever. Today I just escaped from reality. A lot of stuff happened lately that really took a lot of energy and I just felt like running away.

This is a digi from Mazy's Art, and I think I got it from the Outlawz's forum and it was really triggered by Desire's unusaul shaped sketch on Monday over at Tammy's scrappin corner and then there are two challenges for inspiration by a song and the Scissor Sisters' I don't feel like dancin' came up. Papers are from my stash and I used some washi tape with a peel-off sentiment, and yes this card will go all the way to France with some special birthday wishes.

Challenges I'm joining:
The Outlawz Tuesday colour with a twist of metal
Tammy's Scrappin Corner #50 - Sketch
Eureka Stamps #27 - Inspired by a song
Creative Creations #4 - Inspired by a song
Through the Classroom door 19-26 February - Anything goes

Now, off to reality.

Have a fun day!

Blooming creation

 The Outlawz Tuesday 12 February colour palette

Seems a Little Sketchy 


Good Day

Have to admit that sometimes my to do list is just to long....that makes my craft time very short.
At first I thought I will not be able to play a long with this week's unusual colour palette at the Outlawz. But as I opened my blog I saw the Crafty Cardmakers' challenge for a blooming creation and I made this quick project. The digi is from Digi Darla's and I distressed a doilies from my stash and a piece of corrugated board.

Wedding card request



Good Day

With a love-ly week gone by I was asked to make a wedding card. Always lovely to see young people getting married...I always pray they stay that way, since we all want to live happily ever after though it takes a lot of work.
I made an easel card  with this Digi Darla image. I've printed it on a glossy white paper and coloured it with H2O pencil. I did struggle a bit with the request for silver on the card and finally I digged out my peel-offs and made a little silver edge with some silver corners and sentiment. I've used my heart shape Fiskar border punch and Martha Steward ribbon punch with a silver ribbon for the border - the sentiment says For always and ever - Found some doves in my stash.

Challenges I'm joining:
Dutch Dare Challenge #204 - Sketch
Beccy's Place Birthday Bash #3 - Anything but Rectangular cards

Sunny & bright birthday wishes

 The Ribbon reel inspirational photo

 Cupcake Craft Challenge Sketcharoony



Good Day

Hope you all experience some form of love on this Valentine's day. In the mists of red, white and hearts there are people celebrating their birthdays too. My friend is one of them. She loves sunflowers and she said she wants the most beautiful card. Have to admit that is a very difficult request, since beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I tried my best though.
For my project I used glitter effect paper from First Edition's Hide Away stack. The image is a polymer stamp from Tina Wenke distributed by Stampavie and is called mouse with sunflower.Image was coloured with H2O pencils. I use wet embossing on the sunflower and on the sentiment (Just a message). For the first time I made these quilling flowers and I added some pearls and glued the twine around the sentiment label.

Cupcake Craft Challenge #229 - Sketcharoony
The Ribbon Reel #46 - Photo inspiration with yellow & pink, ribbon, flowers & twine or lace
Created with love #28 - Birthday with diecut & embossing

Monochrome white



Good Morning

I have to admit that white on white is slowly becoming one of my favourite challenges. It is so fresh and clinical and I just love to play with different textures. It is challenge two of Beccy's place's birthday bash and she is giving us the challenge of white on whit with only a sentiment in a colour of choice. But up to date it seems as if we are all playing in white only, it is also Try Stampin on Tuesday's birthday bash - so here is a toast to them all: may they stay an inspiration to us all!!
I did use a diecut from Sissix for my sentiment and a wedding toast emboss folder from Cuttlebug. The designer paper has some roses on the background and I used glitter heat embossing on my Inkadinkado swirls in the corners. A feather, heart hat pin and some beads was added with the ribbon as finishing touch.

Challenges I'm joining:
Try Stampin on a Tuesday #104 - Sketch
Beccy's place Challenge 2 - White on White
Cards un more #75 - Love / Valentine
Crazy for Challenges #C4C172 - Love without red or pink

Thank you and have a creative weekend!

Just for love

Seems a little sketchy

Good Day

My busy weekend is something of the past and hopefully things will slowly get to normal, meaning more time to craft. With Valentine's day round the corner I made a card for my other boy. I'm still playing with ideas for my husband, since my original plans have to change due to a visit from his boss. 
Back to my project of today. This is Ava & Deacon from Bugaboo which I coloured with H2O pencils, played with a few diecuts and a Fiskar corner punch. The heart designer vellum is from my stash and I used 2 heart brads to keep it to the card stock and a heart charm, just for love.

Challenges I'm joining:
Catch the bug February - Anything goes
Robyn Fetish #145 - Have a heart - 3 hearts
Eureka Stamps #25 - Sweet hearts
