Free hugs

Hello my crafty friends! How are you? I'm pretty busy at the moment, but I'm fine otherwise. I have been quite busy crafting lately, but you'll have to wait a bit to see what I made. For now I'm only showing you one ...


So, who wants to hug this little fella? I know I do. :D Isn't he just too cute? This image is called Free hugs and is available at Whimy stamps store.


I coloured the image with Promarkers. The circle behind the image was embossed with Mpress embossing folder.


All of the embellishments I used on my card came from my stash. The papers are from Authentique and Prima.

I hope your week has been good so far and that the rest of the week is even better. Have a wonderful day! xx

Springtime

Good morning my crafty friends! Are you ready for spring? I sure am. I wish for more beautiful days like the one we have today. It's sunny and pretty warm. Just the way I like it. :)

My card is related to spring as well. :) I used the soft pastel colours, flowers and the super cute image that is called "Springtime" and is available at Whimsy stamps. I made this card for the new challenge that just started at Crafty ribbons blog. The theme is "anything goes" so you have no excuse not to participate. ;)


So, what do you think, doesn't this card just scream "spring"? ;) The papers I used a from different companies, because I used many of those left-over scraps. Flowers, doily, pearls and crystals came from my stash as well. The ribbons all came from Crafty ribbons. I used 25 mm wedding satin ribbon and 2 different ribbons from the pink ribbon pack.


I coloured the image with distress inks. It's heard to see in the picture, but I added glitter glue on all the flowers too. And for the center of the flowers I used teeny tiny pearls.


This is all from me today. I can't wait to see what you will create! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx

Green for luck

Hello everybody! Are you enjoying your weekend so far? I'm having a lazy day. I did some crafting in the morning and in the afternoon I made a raspberry pie. Yum, yum! I love pies and this one is my favourite - along with the blueberry one. And with strawberry one being close second. And not to even mention the apple one ... Told you, I love pies. ;) And the big plus is that they are super easy to make - at least the recipe I have is super easy - and you can't go wrong with it. :)

But I won't show you a pie that I made. I'll rather show you the card. It's a little bit different than my other cards. Why? Look and you'll see. ;)


It's green - compleately green. Definitely not the colour I would use often on my creations. But it was nice to step out of my comfort zone and make something a bit different for a change. I used papers from Kaisercraft, Authentique and JB. The flowers, doilies and pearls came from my stash. The ribbon is from Crafty ribbons. For the center of my flowers I used gold brads.


This image is called Flutter Anya. Isn't she cute? I coloured her with Promarkers and I did some shading with my pencils. I covered the wings with glitter glue.


That's it for me today. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs! xx

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Loves rubberstamps: 3 shades of green
The greeting farm: Green and white
As you like it: Rubber or digi (definitely rubber for me, because a) my printer often doesn't have any ink and b) because I like colouring with distress inks and if colouring digis I'm always afraid everything will smudge - and often does :S)
The ribbon girls: Birthday with any image
Sister act: Anything goes

I kept this card pretty simple. I know, I know, very unusual for me. lol But I wanted the image to stand out so I didn' use any extra embellishments; just a doily and then I punched out some flowers and butterflies.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and I did some shading with Faber Castell pencils.

Happy birthday Marie :)

Hello everybody! I'm here today because I want to share with you a card that I made for a special lady - Marie. She's the owner of The Greeting Farm. The DT ladies prepared a celebration for her and there are also some guest participants. And I'm one of them. Yay! :D I feel honoured to be invited to participate in this event, because I really like TGF images and always have fun using them on my creations. 

So, I'd like to shout a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Marie. :D And here are some (cup)cakes to help you celebrate. ;)


I wanted to make this card cute and girly so I used all the girliest things - flowers, butterflies, pearls and pink. Oh, and glitter too. Unfortunately it's hard to see in the picture, but I used glitter glue on parts of Anya's dress, cupcakes and hair accessories as well as on the butterfly.


On this card I used papers from Authentique, ribbons from Crafty ribbons and embellishments from my stash. Dies used are from Spellbinders, LLLC and Prickley pear.


Well, that's all from me today. I hope you'll hop to The Greeting Farm blog and wish Marie happy birthday. :)

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx

Happy Wednesday!

Hello there my crafty friends! How are you all doing? Good, I hope. We were supposed to get lots of rain today (and even some snow), but so far the weather has been fine (at least in my town).

Today I'd like to show you a card I made for a friend of mine. She saw the previous card I made with the Whimsy Ballerina  girl stamp and she asked me if I cound make another card with this image for her to give it to her sister (she's a ballet teacher). Of course I said I could and here is what I came up with.


I love soft pastel colours and that's why I used them on this card. All of the papers and embellishments came from my stash. I coloured the image with Promarkers and I added some glitters on parts of ballerina's dress.


I hope my friend's sister will like this card when she receives it. I sure had fun making it. :)


Have a wondertul day!
Hugs! xx
