Hi again, my third post for the day, and this time it's not a Christmas Card. This is now my DT Card for this week's challenge at OSSAT.

For my card I was given this beautiful stamp from Sylvie and as you might have guessed this week's theme is CELEBRATE IN STYLE.

I just followed this beautiful sketch to do my card..

... added some shine, bling and some feathers as well. The papers I used were in my stash, I thought they were just perfect for the stamp and the punches are all Martha Stewart.
Our sponsor this week is Digis With Attitude so now come and join in the fun, just add some bling on it.

I am entering my card in these challenges today.

Hi girls, how are you doing ? Hope you are having a good week. I've got two cards today.......

This is my first one and it's my card for this week's challenge at Digi Doodles Shop Best where I am a Guest for this month :))) I chose this magical Angel & Harp stamp for my card today and the challenge this week is ANYTHING GOES!

No need to say that I coloured her with my promarkers ..... I really loved colouring her in, she is sooo beautiful. The papers I'm using today are magazine freebies but I stamped some stars on them with gold ink, using my new stamps which I got this week. With the same gold ink I then distressed the edges, added some gold dots and also sewed around for some more challenges.

And this is the beautiful sketch by Mindy that I followed to do my card ...

Christmas Shopping Pheobe

Hi girls, Happy Sunday, hope you are having a lovely weekend. For a change, it's a lovely sunny day here  in Malta today and so we are off for a picnic .. but before  I go today I have my DT Card for this week's challenge at One Stitch At A Time and the theme is .... an easy one again .... USE YOUR FAVE COLOURS!  Looks like mine is blue, 'cos I used blue for my card today. 

For my card I used this beautiful Christmas Shopping Phoebe stamp from Lexi's Designs and some lovely freebie papers from Martine at the Craft Table. The sentiment was also a freebie in some magazine.. had it for quite some time, so don't remember which one. I thought it was just perfect for my card!
I coloured Phoebe with my promarkers, did lots of paper piercing with my sewing machine all around the papers...
and today I made my own flower as well. Some water on the punched flowers, squeezing and drying and some glitter as well. Hope you like.

Freebie time at Stamp Fairy

Hey it's Friday and so it's freebie time at Stamp Fairy. Look at this week's freebie ... isn't he a cutie :)) This is Jake !

For my card today I decided to make a Spring Card. It's been some time since I did one and in fact I had to think it twice on how to do the folds!  I coloured Jake with my promarkers, the lovely papers are freebie ones from Martine at the Craft Table, and the poinsietta flowers are from the same digi stamp which I just printed again and cut out! After colouring them I also added some glitter and then popped them up with foam. I loved the look of the glitter on my poinsiettas and so I just added more glitter all around the papers of my card. I loved how it turned out.

So now don't forget to go to the Stamp Fairy Store for your freebies and to the Stamp Fairyworld Blog for more inspiration. We now also have our own group pages on PCP and CDAC, if you would love to join us there.

Digi Doodles Shop Best GDT

You may remember me saying sometime this week that I won at Digi Doodles Shop Best and that I was also asked to be a Guest Designer for this month... well, here's my first card... woot woot :)) I'm always so excited when this happens he he ..

The theme for this week's challenge 33 is to make a MANLY PROJECT ... not the easiest of themes for me, I can tell you. For my card I used one of the many beautiful scene stamps available at Digi Doodles Shops Best and this time I coloured stamp with my Acquapromarkers and then added some chalk as well. The papers are from the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.

Crafty Sentiments # 43

Hi ladies, good morning. I have two cards today....

This is my first one and it's my DT Card for this week's challenge at Crafty Sentiments. The theme this week is REMEMBRANCE DAY, but you can just use the colour red, red flowers or even better, poppies! 

For my card today I used Amy with Basket 1, which I coloured with my promarkers and some gorgeous freebie papers from Cardmaking and Papercraft... I thought they were just perfect for this theme.

I cut up the paper in squares and then after gluing them, I pierced all around with my sewing machine, adding some swirls with my stamps from Inkadinkadoo. It took me quite a bit of courage to cut up the paper, as I've never done something like this before, and didn't know if I would like it or not but I wanted to try this out after I saw one of Melissa's lovely sketches at Tuesday Morning Sketches some time ago, and which I didn't manage to do in time.

I really loved how it turned and happy too that I tried it even though I didn't follow it exactly, but I especially loved the main squares in the sketch!

So now head over to the blog for more amazing inspiration by the lovely DT ladies and to check out what's up for grabs this week! 

I would like to enter my card in these challenges

Something For You...


Hi girls, happy Monday everyone! Sorry, been a really bad blogger lately... yes... I just didn't have time to come over at all. Don't want to bore you, but have just started a work related course, for which I am having to stay later at work, and in the weekend, dog had a very very bad accident in his eye while playing with the kids, on Saturday had lots of kids over as we had Kevin's birthday party and then obviously... the usual housework!! On days like this I just wish I just was retired he he !!!!

I do have some lovely news though.. wooo hooo :)) I won some digis from Craft Your Passion Challenges and then I also did a Top 3 at Digi Doodle Shops Best, where I won a gift certificate .. and was also offered a post as a GDT for the month of November!!!! Busy as I am I just had to say YES. And I am so glad I did, I was given some more digis to do my cards !!!! Woo hooo ... coool :)) Don't forget to come have a look on Thursday for my first card as GDT at Digi Doodle Shops Best!!!

... and so now today I have a little something for you ... just in time for Christmas too...

I got two sets of these stamps as they sent me one in error this month instead of the month gift that they should have sent me, so I thought I would offer it as candy. So if you don't have these stamps, and would like to try your luck at winning them, just do the usual things here ..

1 - Post a pic on your sidebar
2 - Would be nice if you followed
3 - Leave your name in Mr Linky.

I will keep it open til the end of the month and good luck :))

Crafty Sentiments - Make A Gift

Yay it's Thursday.. one more to go before the weekend :)) but Thursday also means that it's time for another challenge at Crafty Sentiments.

This week we are challenging you to MAKE A GIFT. Well, after much thought I decided that a key-chain would make a nice gift. What do you think? The only problem however is that I decided that I want to keep the gift for myself  now he he :))

The stamp that I used is the darling Pat In Summer, which I coloured with my promarkers. I printed it twice, one of the them flipping it beforehand. After cutting them, I stuck them to some thick card and then together, one behind the other. Finally I covered them with sticky plastic and made a little hole with my smallest circle punch.

Hope you like my little project for today and thanks for looking.
