Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying your days lately and haven't been as busy as me :P I'm busy enjoying Summer whilst welcoming and seeing guests going. It is fun but of course tiring a bit too, but I love it. Everything is going fine so far, we had some fabulous reviews from guests and we also finished off the last of the rooms where we have the single beds and I furnished it with the colors blue and yellow with lots of butterflies and flowers :) It came out so nice, was really pleased. Today we saw two Italians leaving and four Russians checking in for a week. After these, we will have two English people coming for nine days and then the next ones will be also from England but in October, so for September we just have only three days not booked :) So pleased. Link to the residence on the sidebar by the way, if anyone is interested :)

Anyway, on to some card-making now and today I have a card with the theme
for the new challenge that started today at

For my card today I'm using this gorgeous image from one of our sponsors Angie's Digital Stamps, Horse With Foal, and I colored it with my promarkers in shades of greys. The background DP is an oldie, from Papermania, The Capsule Collection, and then I just added two card candy, two die cuts, the clouds and the gate and the sentiment to finish it off. I think it came out quite nice.

We have three sponsors this week, and these are


and our third sponsor

All three sponsors are offering three digi stamps each to the winners so three chances to win.

Wow, this is really pretty!

I'm a fellow stamper who makes blank general and thank you pet themed handmade cards and donates them to animal shelters and rescue groups. I've just started a new blog, Sending Paw Prints, for this purpose. I love your cards and am hoping if you have a stash of pet themed cards or are interested in making some you'll think of donating them to Sending Paw Prints.

Thank you!
Karen Howard
