Sorry, but was trying to spend as much time with my family as much as possible and trying to enjoy Summer going to the beach, BBQs with friends, having friends at home as well, shopping at the sales :P..  and so, I've not been having any mojo at all for crafting or anything else!! Well yesterday...  our 18th Wedding Anniversary.. before going out, I managed to make this card for the new challenge at Crafty Sentiments, where the theme for this week is

For my card I decided to use the Strawberry Delight rubber stamp from the Bunnies Collection and coloured it with my promarkers. The papers were magazine freebies, flowers are CreaLies dies, while the border punch is Martha Stewart.  

The prize for the lucky winner this week is 3 digis from the store.

Anything Goes

Hello there, good morning. I've been so busy this week having ten of our boys' friends over at our place yesterday for a bbq and so lots of housework and preparations ... and it's been so hot too this week, record temperatures of over 40C ! so hot .. I wish it will be a bit cooler soon. We will of course be off to the beach today and so a quick post before I go as today it's time today for a new challenge at OSAAT.
The theme for this week is


For my card this time I am using one of the gorgeous images from Gingerloft Digi Stamps, Paris Poodle and coupled it with some embossing, a sentiment and some gems to finish it off.

The winner this week will win some images from the store.

I hope you can come and join us this week and thank you for looking and your lovely comments.

For a change I'm not late today and scheduled my card on time for this morning as otherwise I would definitely be late if I do it after I come home from work.. and I'm going out this evening as well with my friend!!!  yay :D .. Hubby is away for three days with his altar boys and so me called my friend and she is taking me with her and her friends to karaoke he he .. I'm going to enjoy myself for sure.

Anyways, I have my DT card today for the new challenge starting today at I ♥ Promarkers and the theme for this week is CIRCLES

We have a new fabulous sponsor for this year, Nitwit Collections and so lucky girls we all could choose papers from the store to use for our cards. I chose the Live 'n' Learn Set to make a school themed card as I needed a Thank You card for a teacher. ...

.. so coupled with this gorgeous image from Sassy Studio Designs I thought it would be perfect for what I needed.

Really love how it turned out... especially with those glasses covered in glossy accents :D 

I hope you like my card and come and join us this week.

Thank you for looking and all your lovely comments

Christmas in July

Hello everyone, I'm so late again with my DT Card.. and I am such a bad bad blogger too :( so sorry but it's so really hot over here, we're going up to 38C this week and it just makes me feel so tired and don't feel like doing anything, including crafting :(  .. yes that's right .. I haven't been doing much crafting lately and so as you can see, a quick card I made for this week's new challenge at Crafty Sentiments .. still loved how it turned out though, the gorgeous image coupled with the lovely background scene DP and the sentiment was just enough I think.

What do you think?  ... and isn't he cute too ? The image that I used is another of the new rubber stamps that will be released tomorrow at Crafty Sentiments and of course, the theme for the challenge this week just had to be

We will be having two winners this week who each will win one of the gorgeous new Christmas stamps... so a good time to make a Christmas card this week with this fabulous prize.

A Sketch

Finally I'm back with my second card for the day... so late though, but had so many errands to do after work.. to Sliema, Qawra, back home, then to San Gwann, and to Lija and finally back home where I just laid down in bed and also didn't go for my daily walk as I was so exhausted .... and of course forgot about my card as well!! Hummm :( I usually schedule my posts the day before, but this time I didn't manage to take a good picture of my card so I had planned to take another one today, which of course I didn't as well!!! Another hummm :(

Well can't leave it waiting any longer so the photo I have will have to do and as I said previously this is my DT card for the new challenge at Emerald Fairies A & T Digital Designs Challenges where the theme for this fortnight is a SKETCH.

For my card this time I used the sweet image Isla, coloured it with my promarkers. Leaf and flower dies are Marianne Creatables, border punch is Martha Stewart.

This is the sketch if you would like to play with us and the prize for the lucky winner is 1 digital stamp or a digital kit of the winner's choice.

Two last things before I go......... there is a DT Call at the moment as the term of the current DTs will be coming to an end this month.. So go here to apply and was it you that won the 

Thank you for looking today.

Top Tip Tuesday

Good morning, thank you for all your nice comments yesterday ... I do have SOME visits to do :P sorry for not been around much lately but this has been taking up all my free time and I've been jogging and walking and sweating and eating so much much less he he .. at least I'm getting nearer my goal now and my bum is getting smaller  :P .. mum not so pleased though. She is still with those antique ideas that people shouldn't be slim!!  

Anyways I have two cards for today and this is my first one and I made it for the new challenge starting today at Top Tip Tuesday where lucky me I am a Guest Designer there, this challenge being my last week. Thank you girls for having me with you, I really enjoyed it and you will definitely be seeing more of me :D  

So now about the card ... The theme for this fortnight's challenge is MASCULINE CARDS and today I did something very different, no stamping, no colouring, but printing and cutting and layering for a decoupage effect. I had so much fun making this card, and really loved how it turned out..

And my TIP now of course.. can't be a guest at Top Tip Tuesday without a tip :P 
If you are not going to re-ink those small ink pads when they dry up, don't throw them away but use them with distress inks instead of the blending foam pads. Hope you like it and hope you like my card too. 

Will be back with some challenges and my next card, which this time is for the new challenge at Emerald Fairies.

Thank you for looking
