Candy cane for you

Hey hey! How are you doing? Have you started decorating your house yet? I don't have any decorations up yet, but I think I might have by the next weekend. ;) I just need to find The new place for the Christmas tree. Where we had it before is now Amadeja's "playground", so I need to think of something else. My hubby suggested I put it on my craft table. Hmmmm ... it's not a bad idea and it actually makes sense, but that means that I would have much less space to craft and that I should probably tidy up my craft place and preferably keep it "mess free" during December. Hmmm ..
.
Have they turned on the Christmas lights on in your town yet? Here everything is decorated already, but they haven't turned the lights on yet. I am guessing they would turn them on in a day or two.

Today I would like to show you another of my this year's Christmas cards.


On this card I used Betty mouse with candycane stamp from WOJ.  I used papers and embellishments from my stash. I also attached a small jingle bell next to the bow. :)


I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils. On the picture below you can see the jingle bell a little bit clearer.


So much from me today. Have a wonderful day! xx

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Christmas cards all year 'round: Anything Christmas/Holiday
Sugar Pea designs: Mix it up #25 (I chose colours)
Noor design: Sparkle
AnMa Creatief: Anything goes
The ribbon girl: Card challenge

Make it sparkle

Happy December! :D Woohoo, the most wonderful month of the year is here. Are you excited? I sure am. I love seeing all the lights and all other Christmas decorations. And the smell of oranges, cinnamon and apples all around ... Mmmm ... I love December. :)

At The Greeting Farm blog a new challenge just started today and it's perfect for this time of year - we want to see sparkle on your creations. So grab those crystals, sequins, glitter and other sparkly things and get creating. 

I decided to use the cute little pony stamp sets that were released recently - Be a unicorn and A lil' magic (sentiment). I also used the Be a unicorn die set.


My sparkly things are the two crystals that I used in the upper right corner. besides crystals I also used pearl strings and doily to decorate my card. The papers came from my stash. I embossed the circle behind the images with Crafts too embossing folder.


I did the colouring with Promarkers and pencils.

Now it's your turn to make something sparkl. I can't wait to see what that will be. :)
Have a great day! xx

Happy ho ho holidays

Hey hey! Oh my goodness, it's the last day of November. Can you believe it? Holidays are just around the corner. I can't wait to start putting up my Christmas decorations - I usually do it at the beginning of December. When do you start decorating? Have you made all your Christmas cards yet? I'm pretty close. Just need a few more. And I've done most of my Christmas shopping already as well. Once for a change I seem to be on top of things. lol

Here's one of the CAS Christmas cards I made.


I really like the Ho ho holidays stamp set from The Greeting Farm. I used different stamps from the set to create this scene. 


I did the colouring with Promarkers and pencils. I didn't use any desing papers and I only used some sequins to embellish the card.

So much from me today. See you again tomorrow. xx

Do you wanna build a snowman?

Hey hey! Yesterday I received the first Christmas card this year. I guess this means holidays are just around the corner, right? I have already written some of my Christmas cards, but haven't mailed any. I am planning to go to the post office later this week to mail those overseas so that they will get to my friends in time. Those within Europe will probably be sent out in the first week of December. 


This is one of the Christmas cards I made this year. I've decided to use some of the images I printed/stamped a while back with full intention to colour them and use them on my cards/projects, but for some reason never have.


I love Tiddly inks images and this one is one of my favourites (at least when it comes to Christmas/winter ones). Isn't it cute? I coloured it Promarkers and pencils and I used some liquid applique on the white parts of girl's clothes.


Before I go I want to remind you that my mom has some yummy candy on her blog and you only have a couple of days left if you want to join. :)

Have a wonderful day! xx

TGF November release



It’s the 15th, and that means RELEASE DAY for all 3 of the new NOVEMBER TGF Stamp Sets with Coordinating Dies: Mini-Remix Boys, Bakery, and Mini-Remix Fall. We have been previewing these fantastic stamps over the past few days, and NOW they are available in The Greeting Farm Store. To celebrate, TGF is having a BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home all 3 stamp sets!!

I used the Mini remix boys stamp set again. It was perfect for a birthday card I had to make for my cousin.


My cousin had a birthday earlier this month and as he was saving money for a new camera I decided to make a camera shaped card to match the (camera related) gift I got for him. I didn't have any camera templats or dies, so I created my own. I was actually pretty happy with how it turned out. In the center of the card I created a shaker. Fun, right?


I did the colouring with Promarkers and pencils.
Be sure to leave a comment on each designer’s blog, and then head back to The Greeting Farm Blog to let us know you completed the hop. You have until Sunday, November 20th at 12pm CST to leave your comments. TGF will announce the random winner later in the week!

TGF November release preview - Mini remix Fall

Hello everybody! We are showing you the last of the new TGF stamp and dies sets. I like all the new sets, but this one has this adorable little kitty image in it too, which I couldn't wait to ink. :) 



I used one of the sentiments and the leaves that come with the set on my card as well. I created the background using the Memory box stencil and distress inks. To decorate the card I used some sequins and a piece of ribbon.

So much from me today. Have a great day! Xx
