Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Hello, it's Wednesday and today I have an appointment at the hospital because I've been having great pains in my back and shoulder.  I've been going to the physio too but I wasn't having any improvements so I'm going there now hopefully this will help! Wish me luck :)  ... The Italians left yesterday morning, and thankfully everything was fine .. so I was really happy and so relieved :)

Anyway, today it's time for a new challenge at
Crafting By Design
It's still too early for Christmas, but we at are having just that :)
Well, not really lol , but that is the theme for our new challenge that started today


For my card we got to use  an image from our sponsor Drawn By Krista and I chose this sweet penguin. I colored it with my promarkers and cut it up to mount it on some embossed card. More die cuts and of course some fun DP.
Not being in a very crafty mood, I think it turned out quite ok :)
The lucky winner this time will get 3 digi images from our sponsor.

The challenge will run through May 2nd so lots of time to join in.

I am entering my card in these ANYTHING GOES challenges today:

Anything Goes

Good afternoon everyone. Hope you are having a lovely weekend doing lots of crafting. Me unfortunately haven't been much in a crafty mood lately. Been very busy and things not really so  good, which of course takes away all the motivation to craft!  We still haven't concluded the house plans and the Italian guests we have at the moment are not very nice :( .. They were smoking in the apartment, even though it's against the rules, which triggered the fire alarm late at night, and I also noticed the electric cooker burned when I went to switch off the alarm. They even had the cheek to insist they weren't smoking, even though I saw a stubbed cigarette in one of my ceramic decorations! :(  They are still there unfortunately, as they leave on Tuesday, so I'm counting the day.

Anyway, got my DT card today for the new challenge at

This time the challenge is an easy
For my card I am using this gorgeous image, A Gentle Touch, from our sponsor Crafty Sentiments, and I colored it with my promarkers. I added some nice ribbon, two flowers and two heart embellishments, die cuts and punched border and corner as well. Really love how it turned out.

The lucky winner of this challenge will receive three digi images from our sponsor.

Anything Goes - April

Hello everyone. Wow I just cant believe we're in April already .. time is flying by so quickly!! We still haven't concluded the new house plans ufff .. our architect is taking sooo long and so I'm very very disappointed and getting really frustrated :(  I just want to start and move in :(  Hopefully hopefully next week, for our third appointment we will conclude. Fingers crossed xx .. 

Some more news :) Will be hosting our first guests for this year next Saturday in our rental home, they are from Germany, then the week after we will host our second guests, this time from Italy, so I'm very excited. Still have a few days available in April if anyone is interested, which days I have put down in price too. In those days there is the Malta Annual Fireworks festival and the Green Festival going on here in Malta, so many good reasons to have a short break .... plus of course the gorgeous sunny Spring weather :) Check it out here please ... Thanks.

Anyway, now onto my DT Card and this time I have my card for the new monthly ANYTHING GOES challenge at Crafting By Design

 We are this month sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, so of course we are all using one of their gorgeous and fun images. I am using Chef Pierre which I have colored with my promarkers.

Finally we got our appointment on Monday with the architect to plan the changes we want to do for our new house yay yay :) He is such a busy man, we waited so much for this appointment and I called and called his secretary everyday!! He didn't do the changes as we wanted them, so next week we have another appointment but we are hoping that we will finalize the plans and get started... I can't wait .. it's been already too long :(
Anyway, it's a new challenge today at

I chose this cute image Miss Ribbons Chick kindly given to us by our sponsor, Sami Stamps and I colored her with my promarkers using some bright yellow and pink color... very quick but so cute.

B is for ...

Good afternoon everyone. I hope you are having a nice weekend. Mine didn't start so good unfortunately as on Friday me and some colleagues went to Sicily for a day and our flight back to Malta got delayed for over 10 hours due to fog  :( They just gave us some food and drinks but no accommodation for the night, which we were expecting as we weren't traveling with these cheap low-cost airlines........ so we spent the night at the airport on uncomfortable chairs!!! We only got on the plane this morning at 6.00am and so was really tired. Well we will now complain about this and hopefully we will get some compensation.

Anyway got my DT card to share today for the new challenge that started today at

The theme for this fortnight is a fun
B is for...
 I'm sure you will find lots of things starting with B, as for me I did.. balloons, butterfly, birthday and the color blue. The image that I am using is the cute Birthday Kitty from another of our amazing sponsor Sami Stamps.

I hope you will be able to join us for this challenge.
