Hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

Edit 29-12-'09: Ik heb nog steeds geen adres ontvangen van Debbie, Wil en Larisa.
Wil je nog je prijs claimen, dan heb je nog tot 12.01 vanmiddag de tijd om mij je adres te mailen.
Still haven't received an address of Debbie, Wil and Larisa.
If you still want your prize, you've got till 12.01 this afternoon to mail me your address.

Mine was alright, till Boxing Day :(
Feeling sick and miserable all the time. Yesterday it went a bit better and today again a bit better, so I'm progressing :)

Just wanted to tell you I haven't received all addresses of the blogcandy-winners!
You have time untill 12.01 afternoon CET, December 29th to send me your address (see my mailaddress at the blogcandypost). That way I can send out the items before New Year's.

Even voor de Nederlanders onder ons:
Ik heb nog niet alle adressen van de blogcandywinnaars ontvangen!
Je hebt de tijd tot 29 december 12.01 's middags om mij je adres te sturen (zie mailadres bij blogcandypost). Zodoende kan ik de items voor Nieuwjaarsdag versturen.

InStyle Stamps December bloghop!

Hi there!

Welcome to my blog. If it's correct, you came here through Lana's blog. Otherwise, please start at the InstyleStamps blog and it will lead you to the first DT blog.

We have a theme for this bloghop and it's called "Love and romance".

So here's mine with some detail photos.
Made a card and a candyholder :) We have these cute heart-candies overhere in The Netherlands, so I just had to use them *lol*

My blog will lead you to Cyndi's blog.

Enjoy her creation and enjoy the other dt-members' creations! They made some beauties!!!

We will be giving away a Grand Prize to one lucky Blog Hop participant and also have a prize for one lucky design team member. To enter, hop through the design team’s blogs, (leaving a comment at each stop, of course!) and then come back here and vote for the designer who's project inspired you the most. Then, in order to be entered into the drawing to win the grand prize, leave your name with Mister Linky.

Het zou leuk zijn als je op mij stemt :)
You have until 11:59 pm (5:59 uur 'smorgens op maandag 21 december Central European Time!) on Sunday, December 20th to enter, and the winners will be announced on the InStyle Stamps blog.

*Please note that after voting, you will need to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the window that comes up to see the voting results.*

InStyle stamps card OTHBCG

There's still time to leave a comment at this post to have a chance of winning some candy :)

For Instyle Stamps I made this card.
For this month we're going to be challenged to create a New Year's themed card or project using an ISS image. All your holiday shopping is done, right? {wink} Well then, give yourself some time creating it up with a New Year's inspiration.

Once your project is complete (and you have 30 days to do this) add your name into Mr. Linky with a link to your specific project blog post before 11:59 pm, PST, January 12th, 2010. We will then announce the winner by 6:00 pm January 13th, 2009. The winner will have 48 hours to contact by email to claim their prize.

OTHBCG was started to give a little boost to get us over hump day. It occurs on the 2nd or 3rd (if there are 5) Wednesday of the month. That was a mouthful huh? I thought it would be a good idea to offer some monthly candy. Who doesn’t like candy?

The prize for this month’s candy are 3 Copic Markers and 2 Spica Glitter Pens.

Stamps: Instyle Stamps (digi) and All That Scraps (Happy new year!); Cardstock and ribbon: Stampin'Up; Pen: ZIG; Ink: Memento; Copic markers

Monday, 14 December 2009

You might have seen this one :)

As this is my Christmascard for some people of stamping/scrapping-groups I'm in.
It's so much fun to make these little cards! Just love them a lot!

All items Stampin'Up, "merry christmas, joyeux noel"-stamp by Sandylion

Oh... there's another winner as well... just follow this link.
Also wanted you to remind that you can still give a comment right now for winning items.
Everybody can join and can leave comments untill 24th December when my last candy will be given away.
But the sooner you leave a comment, the more chance you have on winning one of the items I have.

Er is weer een nieuwe winnaar... volg deze link.
Wilde je er ook aan herinneren dat je nog steeds een reactie kunt achterlaten om items te winnen.
Iedereen kan meedoen (als je een blog hebt) tot en met 24 december wanneer mijn laatste candy vergeven zal worden.
Maar hoe eerder je een reactie plaatst, des te meer kans je maakt op het winnen van een prijsje.

12 Days before Christmas -- BLOGCANDY!!! NOW CLOSED

This candy is now closed...

Please send me an email (angelfrancis78 at gmail dot com) if you won before 29th December. That way I can send out the items before New Year :) Thank you.

Thank you all for participating in this candy!
Really loved doing this and well... think I pretty might do this next year as well :)
Love the thing that a lot of people can win.
Merry Christmas everyone!!

Ok, so it's been a while, 1,5 month since my visitorcounter passed the 10,000 visitors, now it's on it's way to the 14,000!!!, but I still have this blogcandy for you!!

Thought it might be fun to give away 12 small presents untill Christmaseve... every day there's one present you can win! Yes, that's right!! EVERY DAY!!!
All you have to do is leave a comment, put a link on your blog with the photo, you can see at the top of this post, to this candy and I randomly pick a winner every day. So you've got 12 chances with just one comment!!! Please only leave ONE comment, otherwise you will be disqualified :(

Ok, het is een tijdje geleden, anderhalve maand, dat mijn bezoekersaantal de 10.000 personen passeerde, en nu is het zelfs op weg naar de 14.000!!!, maar ik heb nog steeds deze blogcandy voor jullie!
Het leek mij wel een leuk idee om 12 kleine cadeautjes weg te geven tot en met Kerstavond... iedere dag is er een klein cadeautje wat je kunt winnen. Jawel... IEDERE DAG!!
Wat je moet doen is een reactie plaatsen met een link naar deze candy op je blog en met de foto bovenaan deze post en ik kies willekeurig iedere dag een winnaar. Dus je hebt 12 kansen met 1 reactie!! Laat alsjeblieft maar 1 reactie, anders word je gediskwalificeerd :(

Here's my card:

Saw it somewhat like this on the internet (Please let me know and I will give you proper credit!!) and just fell in love with it!
So simple, but oh so lovely (at least I think so.. *lol*).
That in combination with my fave SU colors: Old Olive, Real Red and Chocolate chip.... just love it!!
So here it is:

Christmas SOL

Again there was an online sketch at one of my Yahoogroups.
Really loved the sketch and I wanted to use it for this stamp, so this is not a large card, only 4,25"x4,25".

Have been making cards this weekend for all kind of Christmascardswaps I'm in. Really love the idea of sending cards to people and receiving handmade cards back.

Anyways... here's the card I made for the online sketch:

Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper & Stamp: Imaginisce; Ribbon: Stampin'Up; Punch: Fiskars; Baubles: StampingBella; Ink: Memento & Colorbox; Copics

In2Stamps Christmas Card

Hi there!

Here's the first DT-card I made for In2Stamps.
When I first got the stamps I hardly couldn't believe I was going to work with them!
I mean, really great quality of rubber, deeply etched print, great inked image and some awesome details!

Really loved working with this stamp. It gives me the Christmasfeeling of a child. Seeing all those toys (that you, obviously, want) and it also gives me the Charles Dickens' feeling.
Just love this stamp a lot!

Stamps: In2Stamps (image) & Stampin'Up (Sentiment); Cardstock, Patterned paper, Ribbon and red ink: Stampin'Up; Baubles: StampingBella; Copics; Snow: Aleene's; Ink: Memento
