Hello good morning. Here is my card for today ...... My DT card which I made for the new challenge starting today at I ♥ Promarkers.
The theme for this week is
... More fun than that it cannot be I think

Our sponsor this week is 2 Cute Ink with 3 digi images from the store and so lucky girls we could have one of the cute images to play with.

 I had so much fun making this card. I remember that when I was printing this paper that I used for this card, quite some time ago, the color cartridge was at its end and so the paper didn't print with the right colors. Of course I still kept it and now here I am using it. Loved how it turned out !

Some challenges for my card now

Christmas no red or green

Hello, good morning everybody, hope you had a good weekend. Mine was great! On Saturday evening we went out with friends for dinner at Ta' Marija Restaruant and then to Gianpula, an open-air night club where I danced all night long ha ha :) I love dancing, but hubby doesn't, so we very rarely go and soooo when we DO go, I make the most of it :P 

Well, it's Monday now, and today I have my DT Card for the new challenge at 
Theme for this month is 

This was just the perfect time for me to use this gorgeous DP that I had from a freebie pack. For the image this time I used a freebie digi, the die-cut is Marianne Creatables and of course the gorgeous charm, the leaves and all the beautiful flowers are all from the Hooked on Crafts store.

I have coloured the image with promarkers, then added the fun snow again with my pen and finished it off with some glitter on their halos and on the snow as well. I love how it turned out.

The prize for the lucky winner this month is a $10 voucher from the store.

It turned out it wasn't my fave shop that had the sale yesterday.. I made a mix up with the names he he! My fave shop is Orsay and the shop that had the sale was Oasis.. so, wanting so much to see Orsay with the sale, I just read the O and s and Orsay was there in the leaflet for me!! I know I know I'm crazy! Of course I still got me a nice skirt from Orsay but not the matching jacket, as unlucky me they sold out my size and on the internet they just don't ship to Malta! Hummm :(

What's Cooking/ Something to Eat

Good morning everyone ...  It's the weekend and I'm pretty sure everyone is happy about this :) I am, more so because soon I'll be going off to my fave shop as they have a 25% discount on their new Winter collection yay. Hope I'll find me something nice.

Anyway, as it's Saturday it's also time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin. The theme for this week is What's Cooking/ Something to Eat.

I didn't know what to do at first and so when last week I won me seven digis from Bugaboo stamps, I immediately thought about this card that I had to do and this is one of the images that I picked. I thought he was so cute and fun. I coloured him with my promarkers, papers are Papermania and border punch is Fiskars. Can't wait to use the others that I picked up.

A Birthday card and some photos

It was my older son's birthday last Thursday. Year after year it gets harder and harder to pick the images to use for their cards and this year again was no exception.

Here is what I did this year.... not really the ideal card for a teenage boy, but I thought it was so cute and fun and thought that it would be perfect for any age... Well he loved it :)

The fun image, which I coloured with my promarkers, is from Mo Manning, loveeely background paper is from Bearly-Mine and the striped one was a freebie in a magazine. Border punch is Martha Stewart, die-cut stars are die-Namics and then computer generated sentiment and three card candy to finish it off.

After I finished it, I realised that yet again for his last year's card, I used again an image from Mo Manning and papers from Bearly-Mine, but of course not the same ones. .. .

This is the sketch that I followed to do my card.

Some challenges now.

Bearly-Mine 57 - ANYTHING GOES

This is where we went on Sunday - trekking with my colleagues in Comino, the little island that forms part of the Maltese Archipelago.

We also went in a cave

which was the one used in the film The Count of Monte Cristo.

Here I am with hubby at the Sta Marija Tower.

These two photos I took from up there.

Having a rest

And more photos 
of the Blue Lagoon

It was such a nice sunny and warm day, people were still swimming. I so wished I had brought my costume too :(

Going back home to Malta.

Sorry there were a lot of photos. Hope you enjoyed them :) xx

Bows or Ribbons

Good morning everyone, I hope you are having a nice day. Today, it's Tuesday so it's time for another new challenge at Crafty Sentiments. The theme for this week is BOWS OR RIBBONS and for a change I decided to make a Christmas card as I wanted to use one of the sweet Christmas digis that were released last week. This is Christmas Penguin, I thought he is really cute.

To make my card this week I got my inspiration from this lovely picture below and chose my colours from there. I did try to find DP with purple Christmas baubles, but couldn't find any, so I thought the trees would have to do instead. I hope you like it.

As always the prize for the winner will be digi images from the store

I am entering my card in these challenges today.

Autumn Trees/Leaves

As the weather had forecast last Wednesday, we had a nice sunny day... well today it isn't correct.. and I'm really pleased as we should be having rain and instead we have again a nice sunny day, so I can put up the laundry out to dry yay :) ..

Anyway, it's Saturday so it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The theme for this week is AUTUMN LEAVES/ TREES

I just didn't know what to do till the last minute, and then I found this gorgeous digi image from Digi Doodles, which I thought would be perfect for this theme.
