Another week gone by and May will soon be gone which will bring us nearer to Summer and to the end of the exams for my boys... I'm so happy too about this :) 

Anyway, another week means another new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers and the theme for this week is another easy one. This time it's

.. I told you it was easy!
So I have flowers on my DP, flowers on the image, the embellishments and die-cut at the bottom as well. For the stamp I used this adorable Fizzy Moon stamp that was one of the stamps that I got as a present from Pamela, who was here in Malta again for a week's holiday. She must have read my mind that these stamps of Fizzy Moon were in my wish-list :) I was so excited when I saw it, so I just had to use it straight away!

For this week we are sponsored by Marianne Design with one of their many fabulous prizes for the lucky winner!

Anything Goes

Good morning everyone. I can't believe it's been two weeks since I posted anything here... so here I am today with not one but two cards in one post!

For both cards I am using the same stamp set but as you can see they are totally different cards.

The first card I did it for the new challenge that started today at 

and the theme for this challenge is
The two sentiment stamps that I used in this card are from The Wedding Day stamp set which I was so lucky to receive from our sponsor for this week, Visible Image. See the other stamp in this set in the next card.

The other stamp that I used on the card, of the bride and groom is from Card-io, I colored it with my promarkers and then I used DP from Papermania, a die-cut heart doily from QuicKutz and then flowers, a bow and pearls from my stash to finish it off.
Check out the challenge blog to see what the other girls in the team did and to see the lovely stamps from Visible Image that you can win for this week.

For my second card, I used the same large sentiment stamp from the The Wedding Day stamp set and then I also used the lovely rose stamp, which is also in this set.
I decided to heat emboss the stamps, but it was only after the third attempt that I decided they were ok as it's been some time since I did this! I then mounted the cards on gold card and finished it off with gold peel-offs, a bow and the gorgeous die-cut doves from Marianne Design... first time using this die. Love it :)

A Mother's Day Card

I still managed to find some crafty time to make some last minute Mother's Day cards in my busy schedule and so I thought I would make a quick post to share this one card with the cute Boofle.

The clear stamp is from DoCrafts and I colored it with my promarkers. Papers are oldie ones and were freebies in a magazine, the sentiment from Simon Says and the border punch is Martha Stewart.

Metal / Metallic

Hello everyone. Still so busy over here! On Monday I ended up going to Taormina for the day as our auntie, cousin and his wife, who are here on holiday from USA, decided to go there and so we decided to accompany them. I had already been there twice before but we still enjoyed it, even though it was tiring and weather was not so nice.

Anyway, being Wednesday today, it's time for a new challenge at

and the theme for this week is 

I wanted to use fresh Spring colors for my card this week and for something different I decided to do some embossing and used the free embossing board that was free this month in one of the magazines. The card is white core card and so after the embossing I sanded it to get out the white effect. I really loved how it turned out.

We are this week sponsored by the lovely Sherri Baldy
The prize is 5 Besties digis.
