It's been two weeks since my last post as I've been to Cremona and Bergamo in Italy for a short holiday and to also participate in a half marathon. Not much time unfortunately was left for my card-making and blogging so I had to skip it last week.. but now I'm back with my DT card for the new challenge that started today at  

The theme for this week is
and this is what I came up with!

 Not one of my best this week, but at least the fun image makes up for that :) To do my card I stamped the background using clear stamps from Inkadinkadoo using colored ink and I also cut out the image twice to then pop it up with foamies.

We are this week sponsored by  

and the prize for the lucky winner this week is a $10 voucher.

I have some exciting news now as I was the lucky winner at The Ribbon Girls Blog with my card from last week and I won two fantastic prizes :) .. a voucher to spend at The Ribbon Girl shop and a rubber stamp of my choice from Lili of the Valley :) So exciting, I'm all smiles :D

Well I'd better be off now as I still got my son's birthday card to finish off and his birthday is tomorrow!!! ... ie today Wednesday, as this is a scheduled post.... Can't believe he will be 17  ...

Anything Goes

Hello everyone, hope everyone is ok. Got loads to do at the office at the moment as will be flying soon, so really busy trying to get all the work done before I leave. Anyway, got my DT card for this week's new challenge at

and the theme this week is an easy

Don't you just looove these challenges when you are tight with time :) ............

... and I had just done this card for a colleague and bingo it was perfect for this theme, so pleased :)

The gorgeous clear stamp image is from Wild Rose Studio, colored it with my promarkers, and it was also a freebie in a magazine, as was the DP. The small pretty flowers are a Martha Stewart punch, which I punched twice, inked and curled the edges and finished them off with a gem in the centre. 

If I'm not mistaken, the leaves die and the fence are Memory Box.. I remove the dies from the packages and then I forget what make they are :] .. In actual fact there are two of the leaves die and it has two birds as well, but I cut them off this time !

We are this week sponsored by Dr Digi stamps
and the prize is 2 digi images of the winner's choice.

Anything But A Card

I'm not a big fan for the Anything But A Card challenges, I always chicken away from them, but this is what this week is all about at I ♥ Promarkers and so I definitely had to give it a go. Mind you, I nearly chickened away as well, but after much thought and struggle, I finally managed to make a calendar ... and I can tell you, I was so happy that I did it. Really loved how it turned out too!!

 Quite simple really it was too and it still has all the fun stuff ...  digi paper, die-cut flowers, border and butterfly and a bow as well to finish it off.

For an image I decided that it had to be a really cute one that would make you smile and you wouldn't mind seeing day after day, so I used this darling digi 'Thanks' from Mo.. here is a close up..

We are this week sponsored by Marianne Design
