Magnolia fairy Tilda 2012

Hi there and happy Sunday!

Only 1 more sleep till Queen's Day and they predict some very great weather with loads of sunshine *whoowhoo!*
Really can't wait till tomorrow, always love that day when everyone seems to be happy, selling loads of stuff (or garbage as I sometimes think *lol*).
I will be there as well, only not selling stuff, but facepainting. Really love doing that as well in my free time and at work.

Anyways... want to show you a card I made with items I bought at the AS-event earlier this month.
Really love this stamp and it was sold out within an hour!!
There were also 2 other people at a booth buying the same paper, and they challenged me to use it, so here it is.

A detailphoto... I really love the way I colored Tilda :)

Thanks so much for coming over! Hope to see you again later on :)

- It's a Magnolia Challenge: monochromatic (I used purple)

CAS: Dashing through the snow

Hi there and welcome Wednesday! :)

Today I like to show you a Christmascard. As you might now (if you're a regular visitor), I like to make Christmascards all year long, so there isn't too much stress at the end of the year.
So here's another Christmascard, made a few weeks ago. Made with stamps and dies I bought from someone who already had them *lucky me!*
Really like the vintage-feel of the items :)

The stickles had to dry, but I was too anxious taking a photo ;)

Thank you very much for coming over and hope to see you later!

This time we like you to be inspired by Spring Colors.
So here's my take on the challenge...really loved playing with my new stamps and really great diecut!

Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge: Anything goes

Hi there and welcome to another Friday, a very special one for me as it's only 1 more sleep till the Art Specially Event overhere in The Netherlands.
It's the best stamp- and scrapbookingshow we have overhere where all of my fave shops are gathered, so think my purse won't like it as much as I *lol*

Anyways... today is also the start of another Wags'nWhiskers Challenge. This time the theme is "Anything goes", so pleas join in!! :)

Here's my creation. Wanted to use a tag on it and some neutrals as I had those papers already on my desk.

Don't you just looooooooove the sentiment "Friendship lightens every burden and makes the sun shine brighter"?? I sure do, specially in combination with this sweet image.

Thank you so much for coming over and hope to see you again later on!
Please visit the Wags'nWhiskers Challengeblog as well and I really would love you to join in this challenge.

LIM: Three shades of Green

Hi there and happy Saturday!

Oh, it's almost there... Easter! It's said this Easter will be colder than last Christmas and guess they're right... had to put my heater on several times last week, while it was a lot warmer a few weeks back.
Anyways... here's another CAS-card from me today.
Please click here for the MCSC-challengepost. Thanks!

On Saturday, one of my fave CAS-challenges goes live, and so it did today.
This time we had to use 3 shades of green.
I pulled out all my SU-greens and came to the conclusion to use Pear Pizazz, Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery for this challenge. Love those colors together!
And here's the card, used a sketch from my stash (don't know where it came from, if it's yours, I will be happy to give you credit!!)

Thanks so much for coming over and hope to see you later! :)

MCSC: Een knipoog naar dieren

Hi there!

It's time for another MCSC-challenge. This time we are using the theme "Een knipoog naar dieren" (sorry, don't know how to translate this...).
We had to use a sentiment by Margriet, mine is a bit like "Hope you're feeling better soon".
Stamped the frog, masked it and did my paper through the printer...easypeasy :)
Anyways... here's my card:

Het is tijd voor een nieuwe MCSC-challenge. Deze keer gebruiken we het thema "Een knipoog naar dieren".
We hebben een tekst van Margriet mogen gebruiken. Heb de kikker gestempeld, gemaskerd en daarna door de printer gehaald om de tekst te printen... easypeasy :)
Hier is m'n kaart:

Thanks for coming over. Please visit the MCSC-blog and hope you are able to join us! :)
See you later!
Bedankt voor het langskomen. Neem ook even een kijkje op het MCSC-blog en ik hoop dat je meedoet! :)
Tot de volgende keer!

CAS: Many hands make light work

Sometimes you have a fave stampcompany.... but in my case I really can't decide what's mine as I really love to make "the more layered one with stamped and colored images"-cards as well as the CAS-cards.
It's sooooo hard to choose, but PTI is in my Top-5 of CAS-cards companies :)

Here's a card I made a few weeks back for a cybercrop. We were inspired by proverbs and this stampset was just perfect to use. Maskered the hands every time.

Thank you very much for coming over and hope to see you later! :)

ABC Challenge: M for Magical

Hi there on April Fool's Day! :)

Hope you'll enjoy today as much as I will. Am off to a crafty fair and am really looking forward to it. (the trains have some different routes as normal, so it takes too long before I'm there... no fair for me *sniff*)
Today I like to show you a card for the ABC Challenge DT and this time it's the "M for Magical".
Don't you just loooooooooooooove all those Magnolia fairies?? I sure do, but when I came across some of my fave challengeblogs, I knew I just had to use this stamp. Think I bought it from someone, but am not sure anymore, it's one of those "never used" stamps overhere ;)

But here you have my card:

And a detailphoto:

Thank you very much for coming over. Hope to see you again soon and love to see you coming to the ABC Challengeblog and have some fun with our challenge! :)
Like to wish you all a very magical day :)
