Hello everybody! Happy New Year! I hope the first week of 2021 has been a good one for you. How did you spend the longest day in the year? For us it was a bit different than the previous years, because we didn't get to visit all the relatives, but it was still nice. The lil one didn't stay up til midnight, but me and my hubby did. Til about 11.30pm we watched The queen's gambit and then we turned on the regular TV. Have you watched The queen's gambit yet? I've had so many people telling me how good it was and that I really should give it a go, so I decided to watch it. And it's really not bad. What are your thoughts on it if you watched it?
I know you are most likely sick and tired of seeing all the Christmas cards already, but there is still one I'd like to show you today.

Hey hey! So we've made it, we got to the end of this strange and challenging year. While it was very different from what we probably expected when it started, I think it also thought us a lot. We learned to be more patient, made us realize what is the most important... So in my opinion not everything was bad. For me, the best thing was the fact that I got to spend more time with my hubby and my lil one. For me that was precious. That being said, let's hope for a covid-free new year. I wish each and every single one of you a very happy 2021. May it be the best year yet!
I've been wanting to colour this image for a looooooong time, but for some reason I never get around to do it - til now. I don't really do New Year's resolutions, but I've decided I will try to use stamps I've had in my stash for a while, but haven't used yet (or haven't used in a long time) for one reason or another.
I coloured the image with polychromos. The papers I used are from Maja design and the flowers are from I am roses and from my stash. I finished the card off with somecrystals, pearls, small bow and metal love charm. I thought it went perfectly with the image. Do you agree? I'm trying to be good and use what I already have in my stash before buying any new craft supplies. I wonder how long will I manage to do this. lol
That's it for me today. Have a wonderful day and see you again soon! :)

Hello lovlies. How are you doing?
The other day when I was writing Christmas cards my lil one came around and asked me which of those cards is for her. I explained to her that all of those cards are for our friends and family members. She looked me with those big eyes and said: "But they are so pretty. I want one too." So I promised her that I will make another card just for her so she can display it in her bedroom. She wasn't too keen about this idea, because she knew this means she would have to wait a couple of days for her card, but when I told her she could choose the image herself she agreed. :) She chose the cute snowman stamp from Stamping Bella. I also love this snowman. I thin it's very cute and I feel like he has his hands up in the air like this because he wants to give everybody a hug. :D
My lil one loves pink (who would have thought, right?! :P) so I wanted to make a card in pink tones, but I realized I don't have any pink dp that would be suitable for a Christmas card. *ooops* So I changed my plan and went for purple and torquise colour combination. And I added some yellow(ish) gold snowflakes for that extra splash of colours. The lil missy was happy with the card, which is most important.
Papers are from my stash and so are all the embellishments. I coloured the image with polychromos and added some diamond stickles on the white parts of the hat.
When I showed my daughter this card her first reaction was "wow", and then immediately followed this question: "Where are the hearts?" I had an "ummmmm" moment for a couple of seconds, because hearts were not part of the original request. Luckily I used the La La Land snowflakes (my favourite snowflake dies!) on this card and they have small heart shaped holes in them. So I showed those to my daughter and luckily she was happy with that. Now this card is displayed on a shelf in her bedroom.
As this is my last post before Christmas, let me wish you a merry Christmas. May it be filled with love and laughter despite the strange time we are in right now. I hope you will get to spend it with your loved ones. Hugs! xx

Hello everybody! How many of you are counting the days till THE day? Are you done with all the Christmas baking yet? I've already made several different cookies, but I think I will make another batch in a day or two. I've started thinking about what I'll make for Christmas meal as well, but haven't completely made up my mind yet. Any suggestions? What will you be making?
Here's another Christmas card that I sent out this year. I actually thought it would reach its destination by now, but it hasn't. Hopefully it will get there before Christmas.
I was lucky enough to win these adorable reindeer stamps (with matching dies) some time ago and I just knew I will have to use them on some of my cards this year. They are so cute and they make me smile. :) I coloured the images with polychromos and then cut them out with matching dies and glued them on the card.
It's hard to see in the pictures, but the big snowflake behind the images/sentiment is soooooooo sparkly. It's covered with glitters and it looks really nice in my opinion (you can see the glitters better in the second photo). However, I couldn't resist and had to add even some more bling - I used a crystal string from my stash.
That's it from me for today. Have a wonderful day! :)

Hey hey! How are you doing? I hope you are staying safe and healthy. Do you have any snow where you live? We got a few snowflakes the other day, but not much. It was all gone by the end of the day.
I am back with another holiday card. Once again I used the tree stamp from The Greeting Farm and this time I also included a sentiment stamp from the same set.
Again I used the lovely papers from DCWV and I finished the card off with some bling. I did the colouring with Faber Castell polychromos.
So much from me today. See you again soon! :)
