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
