Jasmin Celebrations

Hello again I'm back! As I said before, today I have two cards and so now I'm here with my second card which I made for the new mini release happening at Crafty Sentiments. This time we have three fantastic new stamps.

The first one is Jasmin and she is just perfect for Birthdays, New Years or any other celebrations. I really am in love with this stamp, she is so cute.
For my card this time I used my fave Martha Stewart punch which I cut up as Debby had once showed us and then attached it all around my circle. Thanks Debby, I really love your idea.. The embossing folder is Crafts Too and the three little flowers are from the Primula Blooms die from Memory Box... so now I have used all my new dies that I have bought from Simon Says last week... ermm no.. just one more :P .. still haven't used it and I still have to use the Primula Blooms properly!!

Now you should go to our Crafty Sentiments Inspirations Blog, have a look at all the other gorgeous card by my teamies, be a follower, leave us a comment and you will automatically be in the chance to win a mystery package.

I'm off now to take son to his Maths Private lesson, but I'll be back to link up a few challenges.

I had such a long day yesterday... so many errands after work and then to finish off the day I had the Bokwa session as well!! I was exhausted! Luckily today it's easier 'cos I just have to pick up my son from school and then take him to the Maths private lesson later in the afternoon. Nowhere to go after that but I need to sew me a costume for a Boogie Nights party we are going on Saturrday and so far I only bought the material!!! 

Anyway, onto my first card for the day as today I have two cards. This one is my DT card for the new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers. This week the theme is ANYTHING GOES

For my card today I am using again the Grand Madison Window die from PoppyStamps and the Leafy Branch from CC Designs.. can't take my hands away from these he he :)  The other dies are the corners from Cheery Lynn, the grass at the bottom from Die Namics ....

... the bird is an Impression Obsession die, while the flower pot and the grass in the pot are both from PoppyStamps. The sweet teddy stamp behind the window is of course Forever Friends.
I love how my card turned out and I do see me using again this window die very soon, I love it :)

Fabric, Ribbon or Lace

Hello everyone. It's still nice and sunny here so we will be going out somewhere this afternoon. Still don't know where, but definitely we're going out. So my DT Card now for the new challenge at One Stitch At A Time.

The theme for this week is 

I have of course chose to use ribbon... ha ha the easiest option and the image that I was so lucky to use this week is Good Girl from Stitchy's gorgeous digis. Isn't she stunning. I thought she would be perfect for a card to a 16 year old or someone around that age. 
I coloured her with my promarkers, border punch is Martha Stewart, doily die is Marianne Creatables and the other nice die, Honeyblossom Sprig from Memory Box, is another of my new dies. So that's three so far .. I told you I was naughty!!! .. but I'm having so much fun with them... like a very early Christmas present from me.

The prize for the winner this week are 3 Promarkers from our sponsor Creative Craft World

Flowers and Candy Alerts

Good morning everyone. A very nice sunny day here today for the weekend yay. Today I'm just going to do just the necessary bit of housework ;) to then dedicate my afternoon for blog hopping. I've been so busy lately that I didn't have time for this but today I'll definitely be over to see you.

Anyway, onto my card for today and today it's time for another new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The theme for this week is

I took quite some time to do my card today but I wanted to use some new dies that I have purchased, so I needed lots of experimenting. Yes I was very naughty, and my urge to get me some new goodies took over. Well, what happened was that some time ago I had won a $15 voucher from Simon Says and seeing all the goodies, I just couldn't resist topping up the voucher with some more extra monies!!

So here I used two of them, the PoppyStamps Grand Madison Window die and the Leafy Branch from CC Designs. The flower border at the bottom is Memory Box, which I already had and the sweet bird and birdhouse die-cuts were in a die-cut swap from Chrissy. Thank you Chrissy :)

I popped up the window and the flower border and I also stamped the lovely LOTV stamp three times to pop it up as well. I coloured the image with my promarkers, the faux curtain inside the window is a Martha Stewart border punch, the little blue butterflies is an X-Cut punch and the DP is from a Boofle paper pad. 

I really love how my card turned out today and can't believe I left this gorgeous stamp from LOTV waiting for me to use her for such a long time!

Sponsoring our challenge this week with two digis is  

and we also have our monthly sponsor with a £10 voucher from the store.

But that is not all, as today it's also our 3rd Birthday so we have some CANDY as well.

Christmas Trees

Hello everyone. Today I have my second Christmas card for this week! I never ever get fed up doing these :)

This time my card I made it for the new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers as the theme for this week is

The background paper that I used for my card are from our sponsor for this week, Nitwit Collections. We were so lucky to be able to choose again another set of papers !

These fun Christmas trees and the green strip of faux ribbon were also in the set.

The image that I used today is from Daisy Doodles, coloured it with my promarkers and then added some shine with my glossy accents on his nose to finish him off.

I love how my card turned out today, and had so much fun making it!

These are my challenges for my card

Dream Valley 45 - ANYTHING GOES

And now look at the happy mail that I received some time ago. Only today I realised that I still hadn't showed them to you! The gorgeous papers, goodies and lovely card were a candy that I won from Brenda and the lovely die-cuts and gorgeous card were a goody swap from Chrissy. Woo hoo, more goodies to play with :) Thank you girls :)  

Well I'm off to bed now, it's nearly 1.00am.. yes this is a scheduled post again!!

Sorry that I haven't been able to hop along much lately. With all the taxi driving I do after work, some overtime as well and the Bokwa and Fitness classes, I am not finding much time for anything else! Still hope to see you later.

I love doing Christmas cards, especially at this time of year when everyone is doing these and Christmas is just around the corner.

A close-up of my two 3D Bauble stickers on my card, to which I added peel-offs for the string.

With Thanks

It was a nice day today, a bit windy but still nice and warm, so off we went to the market in the picturesque village of Marsaxlokk. I love going there and always return back home with bags full of fresh vegetables, fruit, some sweets, fish and the occasional jewellery and piece of clothing or two :)  Of course, the boys didn't come with us, we left them sleeping home.

Anyway, today it's the start of a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time and the theme for this week is 

For my card this week I got to choose from one of Barbara Jensen's stunning images. The image that I chose is Shy Girl. Thought it would be great for any type of card.

I have coloured her with my promarkers, and teamed her up with some fabulous papers from Bearly-Mine. The stars die-cuts are Die-Namics and the skyline border die is Memory Box.

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Robin's Nest and also our very own Stitchy Bear Store. Check out the blog for all the details.

I coloured my image with my promarkers and then again added lots of fun glitter on her pom pom and dress trimmings. I also added some gems, ribbon and the large postbox image, which I retrieved from an old Christmas card. I really love how it turned out.
