Blue wishes

Hi everyone,

I know it has been far to long. Life here in Europe is so much more stressing and time consuming than it was when we lived in Canada. But I had a brake the last two weeks (can tell you that I needed it!!!) and this gave me some time to sit at my crafting table. Several cards are made and I’ll be posting them soon, but today I wanted to start with a challenge card. I want to enter this one for my old time favourite: the paper players and for another challenge blog where I like to participate: freshly made sketches. For the paper players it had to stay to blues (midnight muse and pool party) and white, I immediately wanted to make a winter card. The freshly made sketches offered a square card design with one layer and one focal point on the lower right corner. The sketch forms the basis of my design, although I did not keep the card square. I also added a border behind my focal point as otherwise I had the impression it was floating around alone on my card. Hope you like it!

See you soon!

A flower for mom

Hi it’s me again,

Another very quick post for you. The inspiration for my second card comes from the just add ink challenge blog. The sentiment says “happy mother’s day”. Hope you like it…

I am off to sleep now,

See ya later.

Happy birthday – retro radio

Hi bloggies,

The card I want to share with you today is one I made for a special order. One of my clients asked me to make a birthday card for someone who loves antique radio’s. This is what I came up with:

Hope you like it! See ya later…

Fall – thank you card

Hi everyone,

A very quick post for tonight. I am so tired that I won’t be very long. I just wanted to share my paperplayers challenge card with you today. I also put this card up for the clean and simple sketch challenge.

Hope you like it,




Think pink

Hi everyone,

Today a very quick post. The card I share today is a card I made this week for a 50th birthday. It took me quiet some thinking before my fingers wanted to make this one, but I finally managed to get it done. Getting the letters in a nice circle resulted in a lot of frustration, I can tell you I was happy when those finally got stamped!!! The central scalloped circle and numbers were made using my cricut. Hope you like it!


See ya later…

Autumn leaves…

Hi everyone,

Can you believe it, I am in time to play with the paper players this week 😀 ! My headache was drifting away yesterday, so I thought “IT’S TIME TO GET CRAFTY!”. I love the color combo Jaydee proposed this week at the paper players. I added a little touch of blue, I thought it would lighten up the autumn colors. Hope you like this one… and be sure to play along at the paper players this week, I would be delighted to see your creations!

Before I forget, I also wanted to thank everyone for the kind comments I got lately! Have a nice day…


Christmas Carol

Hi everyone,

I am back to play along with the paper players this week. Ever since LeAnne’s music challenge was posted, I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card with my stampin’up music notes stamp. However, didn’t have that much time this week. That’s why yesterday, despite my terrible headache, I decided to sit at my desk and try to make something. This is what I came up with,the picture isn’t great, I know. I made my photo in a hurry this morning before getting to work… :s  Anyway, hope you like it!

Thinking of you…

Hi everyone,

Yet another card I made this week. The inspiration came from this weeks CASE study. I liked the colors and decided to make a card with those. It became a real CAS card, but I think, this is definitely how I like it…


Halloween pumpkin

Hi bloggies,

Today a new Halloween card. I was puzzling around to find a nice way to use the Paper players challenge this week. I knew I wanted some green, and I had bought this pumpkin paper last weekend, so I thought it was time to use it. I dry embossed the pumpkin to give it some volume and I’ve put some paper glaze on his eyes to make them pop. I also link this card to this weeks hand stamped sentiments challenge and the inkspiration challenge . Hope you like it!

More babies…

Hi everyone,

As I told you yesterday, it’s baby time… This is the second baby-card I made this week. I am putting it up for the Stampin’ royalty challenge which is all about simplicity. I don’t use a lot of embossing normally, as I have no embossing machine or something, so I have to dry emboss it myself. But I think this one looks nice…
