Bee Strong!

Good afternoon!
 
I'm here today to show you a new card:
 
 
I received this super strong Bee as I entered Gerda Steiner February Challenge.
Every month I find myself anxiuosly waiting for the new image coming in my inbox, I LOVE them all!
Spring is in the air so it was a pleasure to work with these bright happy colors!
 
Background papers are from Echo Park and American Crafts, I then added the bee colored with Copics and some tiny yellow pearls.
 
I LOVE it!

Christmas Card Challenge # 8 - Silver and Gold Wrapping Paper.

Happy Sunday!
Are you ready for a new Christmas Card Challenge?
 
We have a photo to inspire you today:
 
 
In detail:

 
This is my take:

 
This little mouse was from DigiDoodle and I chose it becuase of the wrapping paper around the box which fits the theme perfectly.
 
I colored it with Copics and used a paper from First Edition as background.
 
Isn't it sweet?

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge extra for March.

March already? Time really flies, even if this winter has been far too long!

Christmas Card Challenge # 7 - Color.

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
It's a very sunny day here and I hope it means spring is coming soon!
 
But we have a Christmas Challenge to talk about and it's a very wintry one!
 
 
Colors!

 
While making the card colors seemed to me more light browns than greys, that's why I made this card:

 
I then looked at some of my teamies cards and noticed they used greys... so I'm sorry if it does not match (but I still see creams and light browns...).
 
Anyway, I chose these cute birds from Doodle Pantry and a background paper from First Edition.
They are so sweet!
 
Have a look here to see the (grey) cards of my teamies and last week's winner and Top 3.

I found a piece of patterned paper in my stash (sorry, I don't remember the brand) and positioned it behind the gingerbread.
 
A quick and easy make for a super-sweet card!

February already... so I decided to make a very romantic card, with two adorable cats:
