Wedding wishes

Hi Everyone,

Hope you're all keeping well. Are you still enjoying an unbelievably warm October? I am! And I hope it will last till spring! ;o)

Today I have a simple card to share with you (although it is a bit time consuming with all this die-cutting and poking little pieces of paper out of the die-cut or the die itself), but I believe that when you use the Anja Large Oval die by Marianne Design, there isn't much that needs to be added to make the card really different and beautiful. And the person who commissioned that card from me agrees 100%! :o) It's always so nice to see how your creations can make others happy!

The colour scheme was made to request, and I added a few flowers, pearls and some Wink Of Stella (of course!) for a little bit of bling. The leaves were cut with a Martha Stewart punch.

The card is also my DT entry for this week's Divas by Design challenge - a nice and simple Anything Goes. I am sure you'll have something to submit, right? Go ahead so, join us, and share your creation(s)!

And here's the card:

Simple, but looks well, doesn't it? 

Have a great (and still warm!) week,

Hello Everyone,

This week's post is a little bit late, but unfortunately I have still been quite unwell over the last few days, and I had to take a break from a few routine activities. 

Today's project has been created for the Texture challenge over at Divas by Design. Our sponsor is Magnolalicious, and so most of the Design Team have used Magnolia stamps. 

I decided to take the opportunity and make a Christmas card, seeing that Christmas is fast approaching (way too fast!), and I am not ready for it at all yet, at least card-wise :o) Well, at least now I have one extra card to mail! 

The card is rather simple and flat enough for posting. With a bit of bling/glitter, of course! I also used the Mama Elephant Femme Frames on it - love these! The stamp with the greeting is my recent second-hand purchase - the person who sold it to me didn't keep the original packaging, so I am not sure what set the stamp is from, however I have to say - I think it's really beautiful, and I will surely use it on a few more cards this year, be that on the front or inside.  

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - Snowflakes
Inky Chicks - Christmas
Tilda's Town - Use your Christmas stash

How are you getting on with Christmas cards? All ready, or will you be making a lot of last minute cards, like I usually do? ;o)

Welcome wee little one!

Hello Everyone,

It has been a little bit quiet here, apologies - I have been a bit sick, and also my mojo decided to abandon me for a while again! Let's hope it's back now cause I have a good few orders to go through in the next few days! :o)

We have been blessed with a gorgeous and mostly sunny September in Ireland, and I have to say - October is looking quite good also... so far! It's colder and darker, of course, but at least there's still loads of sunshine to enjoy! I wouldn't mind if it stayed like this until spring ;o)

If there's any type of cards that I enjoy making most, it's baby cards. Baby girl cards are even better - I just LOVE to use pinks, purples, glitter and cutesy images! And this is what I am going to share with you today, yay! 

If you have been following my blog for a while, you probably know my recent obsession with Mama Elephant dies & images, and I am "afraid" this card will showcase some of my recent purchases again. Truth be told, I am delighted that I am actually using these so much - it only proves to me that it was worth it!

I hope you like this cute little card as much as I do. It's going to a Polish friend of mine who recently had a lovely Baby Daughter - hence the Polish "Gratulacje" (= congratulations). 

A card with no Wink of Stella or some other form of bling/glitter
is not really a card, eh? ;o)

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Mama Elephant - Anything Goes
Passion for ProMarkers - Favourite colour combo (pinks and purples!)
Love to Create - 2 dies and sparkle (I used the femme frames & the dies coordinating with the stamp set by Mama Elephant)
Moving Along with the times - Dog-gone-it
A Gem of a Challenge - Create a scene

Have a fabulous weekend!

Trick or Treat...?

Hello Everyone, 

I can't wait to share today's project with you, I am so excited, so I'll jump right to it, no small talk, LOL! 

The Trick or Trick box is a project for the Divas by Design Challenge blog, of which - as you know -  I am a Design Team Member. This week we're sponsored by the fab Hobbycutz, and the theme is... SPOOKY CREATIONS.

When I saw this lovely cutting file on sale over at My Scrap Chick, I just knew I had to give it a go! Now, not exactly sure that mine is as cute as the one on their website, but nevertheless I am happy with my Mr. Hungry Pumpkin ;o) There's a bit of shading added by me here and there, I used my ProMarkers for this purpose. And the googly eyes - well, I just couldn't resist! 

I don't go Trick or Treating myself, but I will happily have some sweets presented in Mr Pumpkin on the table during the Halloween period. That is... when I have sweets to present, cause the ones in the photos are... ahem... gone! Spooky or what?! ;o)

I just love the teeth on the front of the box - they add so much dimension!

He does look spooky when it gets darker, eh?!
Just look at the shadow created by those big teeth!

I am entering the little guy into the following challenges:
Inky Impressions - Anything but a card
Inky Chicks - Die Cuts Only
QKR Stampede - Pumpkins

Hope you enjoy my little Halloween box!
