To my daughter... I LOVE YOU

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I've been pretty busy lately; spending time with my lil one, learning french etc. What's the weather like where you live? Do you have any snow? We do, quite a lot of it actually. I wonder all this white stuff was for Christmas when I actually wanted it... It really has a terrible timing. *sigh* But I will admit that nature looks nice all covered with snow. :)

So, the "love month" is here. Do you have any plans for Valentine's day? Do you do anything special on that day with your other half? I will be honest, I don't really do Valentine's day. I like to surprise my hubby with little things on random days through the year, not "just" on Valentine's day. Therefore I don't really do any Valentine's day crafty projects. So when I saw that the theme of this month's challenge at The Sketchy Challenges blog is Love/Valentine's day I started thinking what to do. Lucky for me a very, very special person celebrate's her birthday this month. My sweet little girl who I LOVE with all my heart is turning three later this month. I can't believe how fast these 3 years have gone by.

For this challenge I made a card for my birthday girl.

When I was thinking about what image to use for my card I knew I wanted something sweet. Preferably a little girl with a toy of some sort. And this adorable Sweet friends Marci from La La Land Crafts was perfect. My lil girl also has a panda toy and loves playing with it, so score! :D

Seriously, isn't this image just too cute? I really like it. A lot! I coloured the image with Faber Castell Polychromos and then carefully fuzzy cut it and raised it on foam pads to get some dimension.

I decorated the card with all of my favourite embellishments - lace, pearls and lots of beautiful flowers from I am roses.

I can't wait to see your Valentine's/Love projects, so do come play with us at The Sketchy Challenges. :)

Hugs! xx

First post of 2019

Hello everybody! Happy New Year! I hope 2019 started off good for you. Have you made any resolutions? I didn't; I never do. But I do have plans which I hope to realize this year...

There's the first challenge of the year going on at The Sketchy Challenges blog and the theme is "sketch". You have until the end of the month to join. I still have to make quite some birthday cards, so I made one for this challenge.

For this card I used different papers and embellishments from my stash. The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps.I used CC designs and Cottage Cutz dies for the butterlies and leaves.

I hope you will come play with us. Have a beautiful day!

Happiest of holidays

Hello everybody! Let me start this post by wishing you all a very merry Christmas. I hope you have a magical day and that you are able to spend it with your loved ones. Were you on the naughty or nice list this year? I think I was a very good girl, especially considering all the fun presents Santa left for me under the Christmas tree.

I want to thank all of you who have been visiting my blog and were leaving me comments and those of you who were in touch by email. I am sorry I haven't been a good blogger friend in the last couple of monrhs, but soooo much has been going on... For me 2018 was a big year, which brought a lot of new adventures, challenges and experiences, for which I am very grateful. I am looking forward to see what 2019 has in store for me.

Have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

Hugs! xx

Fluffy snowman

Hey there! Phew, three posts in a row. I'm on a roll here. lol I don't have a card for you today though. Instead I want to show you one of the fluffy snowmen that I made. I really enjoy making them because they always make me smile and I made quite a few this year again. This is just one of my "snowmen army". ;)

I won't go into details on how to make these here because ther are quite a lot tutorials online; if you want to see how they are made just google "sock snowman".

To decorate this little fella's hat I made a flower out of foamiran and glued it on the hat.

To make this card I used foamiran, AC3 dies from Rosy Dot and pearl button for the center.

Have a wonderful day!

Dressed for festivity

Heya! I am back with another card. This is the one I made for the new challenge at Magnolia-licious. This month we want to see hearts or stars on your card.

Here's what I made...

I used beautiful Maja Design and Lemon Craft papers and I paired them with this super cute Dresed for festivity Tilda stamp. I stamped the image on neenah paper and coloured it with pencils. To make the pretty border I used Edwin lace.  I decorated the card I used some crystals and silver sequins.

I hope you will play with us.

Happy December

Hey everybody! I'm a bit late with this post... Sorry about that. On Saturday a new Challenge started at The Sketchy challenges blog. Theme is Christmas and you have the whole month to play with us. :)

Here's my card...

I used Lemoncraft papers and 2 different Magnolia stamps. I coloured this adorable Tilda with distress inks and I added some liquid applique on the white part of the sock to make it look more fluffy. Behind the Tilda I stamped snowflakes and embossed them with gold embossing powder.

To decorate the card I used some pearls and gold vellum snowflake stickers which I raised on foam pads for some extra dimension.

I hope you will play with us his month! xx

Ananas Tilda

Hey everybody! 

A new challenge just started at Magnolia-licious blog. You have the whole month to play along and this time we would like to see something sparkly on your card - can be glitter, crystals... Anything that sparkles. :) And don't forget you need to use either Magnolia or Polkadoodles image.

Here's my card...

I made this card for my friend's birthday. I really like this sentiment - it's a Gummiapan stamp and I just stamped the sentiment several times and then cut parts of it out so I could use it on my card as I wanted to. I stamped Ananas Tilda on neenah paper and coloured her with pencils. Papers are from MME. I decorated the card with some crystals, lace and flower shaped sequins.

I hope you will come play with us. Have a beautiful day! xx
