Happy New Year

Ok so it's not actually the first day of the new year, as it's already the 14th of January!! ... but I still hadn't shared this card. I had done this one for my guests that had come for the New Year at our holiday home which we rent out for short lets in St Paul's Bay Malta

Since they came for the new year I had of course done a New Year's Card.

For my card I used a mixture of dies, using also a new one which I just bought (the banner with the stars), and peel offs and a brightly colored background paper. Wasn't so sure of that paper, but I couldn't find anything else with stars which would be fit for a new year's day. 
Here's them btw :) as we took a selfie before they left!

New Baby

It's that time for new things... new year, new home (soon soon at the end of this month), new crafty goodies (got that too :)) and new babies too.. why not :) .. well that's not for me now he he .. but a colleague of mine just had a new baby boy, their second and of course a card I made for her.

I decided to use one of my fave stamps from Lili of the Valley and I colored it with my promarkers. The back DP is from Papermania, stars border from Martha Stewart, the little teddy die-cut is one of the new dies that I just bought and the large 'NEW BABY' sentiment is a cut off from a shop bought card. My colleagues pass on their old cards to me and I love to recycle anything I can from them.

 Well, now just to post it :)

Inspired by a Movie

Good evening everyone and a happy Wednesday to all. I hope you are having a lovely week :)
I'm much better now and back to work, but as expected really really busy at the office since I've been away for quite some time!

Anyway, it's already Wednesday and so it's time for a new challenge at  

The theme for this week is

I'm sure you'll come with lots of ideas with this theme, as for me, here is my card and that cute image is called Poppy, kindly provided to us by our sponsor Alicia Bel
She just reminds me of the Flinstones movie, I loved it!

I colored the image with my promarkers, background DP  is from a Wild Rose Studio paper pack.

Some exciting news now as I was a winner twice with my Christmas Card.
First at the Holly Jolly Christmas challenge blog, where I won 3 digis from Odd Ball Art and then at  Dream Valley Challenge and I won 2 digis from All Dressed Up :)

Anything Goes with Crafting by Designs

Good morning and a happy new year to all :)
I hope you had a fabulous start of year and wish you all the best for the coming days. 
As for me....  it didn't end so well and so far hasn't started so good too as I have a bad cold and am home sick grrr :(  Re the ending.. well on New Year's Eve we went out for dinner with friends, all was going well and food was great ie until the main course had to come... which unfortunately didn't come at all!!! We complained and complained, they said it's coming, but still nothing and then about ten minutes to midnight our friend just told them off and out we went!!! And that was it! We couldn't believe it!!! I really don't want to complain as there are far worse things to happen than this and a bad cold, but I really just wish that everything will be good for this year with our upcoming new house buying and moving, which is such a big feat and I'm still a bit scared about this!

Anyway, on a positive note :D yesterday I received another booking for August for our rental home in Qawra, Malta so I'm very pleased as saving up from these rentals for our new home. The other guests, left on Monday really satisfied. Will be sharing the card I did for them real soon.

So, finally, onto my card for today and it's another
challenge, but this time it's for my DT at

As you know this one is a month long challenge so you have lots of time to link up your card.

For my card I used an image kindly supplied to us by our sponsor for this month  
Odd Ball Art

I colored it with my promarkers, added some die cuts, including two new ones :D and of course the background DP, which was a magazine freebie. I also colored the die cut tree with promarkers and added 'NEW HOME' letter peel offs and a few gems to finish it off.

The winner of this challenge will get a choice of three single images from the sponsor.

I am entering my card in these ANYTHING GOES challenges today
and also in these SOMETHING NEW challenges
for my new home card and my new dies, the owl and squirrel.

Anything Goes with Crafty Friends

Hello everyone, and a happy weekend to all. I've just been to the hairdresser to do my hair as  tonight we got dinner out planned with friends for the end of the year. Some partying afterwards if hubby is up to it :) Have you done any New Year resolutions ?? I don't usually do but this year I HAVE TO as I stopped all my training and don't like this. .. so I have to do a resolution to start again. Trying to get hubby to come with me but it looks like it's more difficult than finding a pin in a haystack! Will see. Anyway, so this is the last card for this year, a DT one this time for the new challenge that started today at

and of course I had to do another Christmas Card when the theme is

For my card I decided to use another of my cute Melonheadz stamps ... I did tell you I loved these images and that I would be using the other ones from the set, so here is another one! I got the other ones printed off but still didn't manage to use them yet. Hopefully I will soon.. and they would be ready for Christmas 2017.. and then for once I wouldn't be late in posting them :P

Back to my card. To make up the card this time I didn't use any DP but stamped the background with my snowflakes stamps from Inkadinkadoo. Then I added some other embellishments and a bow to finish it off. Quick and easy and cute of course :)

We are this time sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps and they are offering a $12 voucher to spend in the store to one lucky winner.

Another Christmas Card

Good morning everyone. I am hoping you all had a lovely Christmas :) Unfortunately ours wasn't good at all... in fact I think it was the worst ever for us as we spent it in hospital! Hubby had severe pain due to a kidney stone which started early morning on Christmas day! I took him to hospital and they kept him there for three days until he passed the stone. Luckily, which is quite rare, we were going to be alone at home for Christmas lunch, as we were going to lunch to his brother's but they called it off as they were unwell, so at least we didn't disrupt others as well.

On a positive note,  was really excited with a 5 day booking for the end of year at my rental place in Qawra, Malta :) but it was also during the time when I was going to and fro to hospital so I was really really busy with the preparations and everything and I had no-one to help me. 

Anyway, all is good now and he is back home and we are on two days vacation as well :) so I thought I would share this cute Christmas card that I did. I had said that I would be using my other digi stamps from Melonheadz and here is another one.. so cute :)
I colored the image with my promarkers, oldie DP, some die cuts, a sentiment peel off and other small embellishments to finish it off. Love how it turned out and it was quite simple to do.
