Get Ready for Christmas

Still a few months for Christmas, but the Crafting by Design DT are already making Christmas Cards as the theme for this week's new challenge


 For my card I chose this cute cat playing with a Christmas cracker kindly given to us from our sponsor Ike's Art and I colored him with my promarkers. Then I added some Christmas trees embellishments, gems, ribbon and the sentiment.

 The prize for this week is $20 gift certificate to the store!__digital-art-stamps

Some exciting news now as found out I did the Top 3 at Crafty Catz with my card 

Wishing you a lovely day and thanks for looking

Anything Goes with Crafting by Designs

Good morning, I hope everyone is fine. I am not so well unfortunately, felt dizzy and fainting while driving to work yesterday!!! Luckily as soon as I realized something was wrong I immediately stopped the car and managed to park on the side and called hubby. Doctor just said it could be fatigue ..  boq !! Still not very good but much better! Now some good news about the permit for our new home and it's finally out and we can start :)  The bad news... the builder can NOW only start in July : /  this thing is getting a too long.. I just don't want to say anything more :(

Anyway, it's a new month, and so a new Anything Goes Challenge has started at  

 We have a fabulous sponsor again this month, Beccy's Place and lucky us we could again choose a digi image to make our card. I chose the Dalmation dog from the Dog's Tales Set. So cute I think :) I just colored his collar and nose and then added some grey color around the edges. Added some dies of course, another new one again, the sweet birds on top.

The prize for the lucky winner this month is a one set of digi images.

I am entering my card in these ANYTHING GOES challenges today:

Summer Colors

Hello everyone, good morning and hope you are having a nice weekend. I had two days off Thursday and Friday for my birthday going shopping to Valletta in the morning and to the beach for a swim in the afternoon with hubby on my birthday so extra happy :) It was lovely at the beach. The sea of course is still a bit cold at this time of the year, but still there were a lot of tourists swimming and I loved it. Hubby didn't go in, but I did, twice and I'm so looking forward for another one :)

Anyway, it's Saturday today and it's time for Team 2 at the 
This time we have a fun challenge

For the challenge you just need to use two colors from this picture here below.

We got to use images from our great sponsor Bugaboo Stamps and I chose this gorgeous lady Beach Girlz. This time I didn't color it with my promarkers, but chose the ready colored one as it had the right colors that I needed and I also really loved it as it was. The background DP was from a free paperpack from a magazine and the fish and the waves dies are new :D
The prize for one lucky winner this time will win four digi images from our sponsor.

I hope you will be able to join us.
Will be back to enter some challenges.

Big hugs
Thank you for looking

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great week and lovely weather too. I got to go swimming last Sunday, so I'm very happy about that :) It was a bit cold but I loved it still as it's only until you get in that you feel it cold, but then it's ok. Yesterday we met Pamela and Billy, as they came for their holiday in Malta again. Will be meeting them again next Saturday as we are doing a bbq at our new place. More news... still waiting for the architect to give us a meeting :(  and we had guests from Spain this last week at our rental place, and they were so so nice. I really loved them. They left this morning but unfortunately they forgot their grandma's walking stick in the living room. Hopefully I will be able to hand it over to their cousin who is living in Malta as they came to see her.

Anyway, onto my card for today as it's a new challenge at
Crafting By Designs

The theme for this week is
 All DT are using an image from our sponsor Nikki Brunette and I am using Adeline.
I colored her with my promarkers and then added some flowers and die cuts.
Unfortunately I haven't been in a very crafty mood this time, the waiting for the architect is driving me mad!! :(   But I don't want to bore you ... hopefully soon I will say that we started.

Back to the DT challenge, and as I was saying we are sponsored by the lovely

Nikki Burnette is a fantasy artist who paints all sorts of fantastical creatures in watercolor. Fantasy art is where her heart lies. She loves being able to escape the reality of our world for even just a few hours and enter a new fantasy realm where witches play tricks on Halloween Night, fairies fly around the sweet smelling rosebuds, and mermaids swim gracefully through the water with their dolphin friends. Nikki sells my original paintings as well as a wide range of different products that she creates in her studio.  All her artwork and drawings are original designs.

The winner will get 3 digi images.

Hope you will be able to join us.
