Anything Goes

Well finally I'm back and it's so nice too to be making cards again. I think it's been my longest break from blogging this time. Don't know if you've seen my previous post, but we were renovating our summer residence as we started renting it out. Finally it's all ready and we have even welcomed some guests too. Yesterday we saw five very nice people from Germany leaving, and tomorrow we get two more from Germany. I'm finding this really fun meeting new people from all over. We had from Italy, Peru, Ecuador and Germany so far. 

Anyway, back to my card making and I really enjoyed myself making this card, especially more as I love Kenny K stamps so much.

This is my DT card for the new challenge that started today at  
and the theme for this fortnight is ANYTHING GOES. Just perfect for me as have been so long away that I thought I would find it difficult to get back, but I found it was so fun.


For my card I used the image Download Diva and I colored it with my promarkers, which I colored her top to match with the lovely background paper.


We have three wonderful sponsors this fortnight

Lacy Sunshine and the winner gets 3 digi stamps

Toadstool Printables also offering 3 digi stamps to the winner

Kenny K Stamps, also offering 3 digi stamps


So if you would like to be in the chance of winning one of these fabulous prizes, just make up a card and enter it in the Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Hope to see you there.

Coming back soon

Hello, morning all.

I've been MIA ... yes nearly two months!!!! because we have been very very busy refurbishing our summer residence as we decided to start renting it out for short lets on AirBnb. When we decided this we didn't realise what we were getting ourselves into, all the work it would involve, but now finally it's done. It was Malta Tourism Approved as well, we hosted our first six guests last week and we are even booked till the 28th of August! At least our hard work has paid off !! Woo hoo :) So exciting :)

So I can get back to crafting now, and really looking forward to as well.

Will be back real soon.

Big hugs

Father's Day

It will soon be Father's Day, so I thought I would share this card that I made. Usually I find male cards quite a challenge to do, but not this one as I knew that I wanted to do a horse for the main image. .. then well, everything came along easily.


I found the image on the internet, and colored it with my promarkers. The background DP is from a Wild Rose Studio paperpack, and then I cut out some die cuts and used twine to finish it off.

Inspired by a Song or Film

Summertime

A day late this week with my DT card for the new challenge that started yesterday at the 

So sorry, and so bad of me too .. but there was the Fashion Week here in Malta so practically I was nearly out all week and of course it hadn't occurred to me to do the card the week before! Yes, me always leaving everything till the last minute.

Anyway, on to my card and this week I am using this gorgeous image Aurora Spring Butterfly kindly supplied to us by one of our sponsors for this week East Wind.
 
I decided to use the colors blue for the Summer blue skies and the yellow and glitter for the Summer Sun and lucky me I found the perfect paper for what I had in mind. I have of course colored it with my promarkers.


Added some pearls and beautiful flowers and of course some die cuts and a little yellow bow and a sentiment to finish it off. Loved how it turned out.
The prize from our sponsor The East Wind is 3 digital images.

 Our second sponsor for this week is Sparkle 'N Sprinkle and the lucky winner will get $15 worth of digital images.

Anything Goes

Good morning everyone. It's Wednesday today, and it also happens to be my birthday :) 
Another year older.. another year wiser :P Yup 

Well me and hubby took the day off today and he said he would be taking me somewhere nice, just me and him and then for dinner with the boys. It's not often that we are all together, so really looking forward. .. hmm I wonder what he has in store for me for the day, hopefully to the beach :)

Anyway, as I was saying, it's a Wednesday today, so time for a new challenge at 




The theme for this week is

ANYTHING GOES

We are lucky to be sponsored by Ike's Art this time and luckier still to get an image to use to make our card. I chose this beautiful image Lust2  to make my card and decided to go for a simple design and a monochrome look. .. 

Colored the image with my promarkers, having some lovely time coloring her hair using three shades of Cool Grey colors. I think it came out quite good.
