Magnolia Happy Halloween!!


I hope you will have a good one, with loads of trick-and-treating :)
Overhere we don't really celebrate it, would love to go to the USA one day and celebrate it as well with parties and stuff.

But.... I just loooooooooove the Halloweenstamps a lot, especially Magnolia ones *lol*, hmmm... thinking about that, but I just love the Maggies, that's how I call them ;), in any way. Doesn't matter... Hallloween, Christmas, Easter, birthdays, etc. etc. I love those stamps!

Anyways... here's a card I made with one of those Halloween Maggies. Just love this spider.
Used a spiderweb-punch and some spiderweb papers. I love them!!

Instyle Stamps October Bloghop

Hi there and welcome to the Instyle Stamps October bloghop! :)

The DT have some great projects for you to show.
If it's correct, you've came here after visiting the Instyle Stamps blog. If not, please go there as that's the place to start your journey.

The theme of the bloghop is "Giving Thanks/Thanksgiving".
As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving overhere, I wanted to make a "thank you"-project for some people who look after my 2 cats, Jet and Gizmo when I'm away.

So it was quite obvious to use the newest stamp "Purrrrrrrrrrfect" :)

I made a small pizzabox and filled it with "Merci"-chocolat, and "Merci" means "thank you" :)

Anyways... here's my project :) Hope you will like it...

And here's the chocolat...

Hope you love it. It's really easy to make and I just love easy to make projects :)

anyways... you're on your way to Taylor. She has something great in store for you!
Please don't forget to leave a comment at the Instyle Stamps blog as well... there's a prize involved as well :)

See you later!

I also like this project to play with the following challenge:

Wags'nWhiskers Black & White challenge

Hi there and welcome to another Wags 'n Whiskers challenge.
This time I set the challenge, which is "Black & White".
It sure is a challenge, but a great one if I may say so :) It's been great to create something.

Here's the card I made with the sweet Hannah:

And a detail of the stamped & colored image:

Thanks for coming! Don't forget to go to the Wags'nWhiskers blog to see more of the great items the DT has made this week.

EB: I Love you this much!

Hi there!!

Here I have another Elisabeth Bell image for you to share. This time I made a card with the image "I love you this much"!

It's one of my fave EB images. It can be used for so many occasions.
Here it is...

And a detailphoto...

Used some stitches on the card, some flowers, a sentiment, some copics a piece of ribbon and ofcourse the great image :)

I used a "Congratulations"-stamp on it, as I wanted to use this card for a birthdaycard. But... when I realised it's October, Pink Ribbon month, and I used quite a lot of pink AND a pink ribbon, I also think this card is great to congratulate someone who survived cancer.

Anyways... I hope you've enjoyed my little piece of c'ard :)
