Happy Sunday!
 
This means welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!

This cute snowman is from 2 Cute Ink and is called SnowBot.
I actually bought it for my daughter who loves 2 Cute Ink but I couldn't keep myself from using it for one of my cards!
I colored it with Copics and mounted it on a background paper from Bella Blvd.
I love its bright and cheerful colors!

Easter is Just Around the Corner.

A request from a customer made me realize that Easter arrives early this year and that maybe it's time to make Easter cards!
 
I have one to show you today:
 
 
I made this card last year, when I was in Eat Cake Graphics DT and I noticed that I have not blogged about it yet!
 
This lovely bunny is Flopsy Bunny available in Eat Cake Graphics shop. Papers are from October Afternoon.
 
I really love this cute little bunny so proud with its giant egg in its hands!
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:
 
 
The card will be available later today in my shop.
Don't forget that most of my cards are for sale. If you like one of them but don't see it in the shop, please contact me and I'll provide a listing for you!

Christmas Card Challenge # 8 - Color Challenge.

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
We have a color challenge for your today:
 
 
In detail:

 
These colours are wonderful, aren't they?
I absolutely LOVE them, they're maybe my favourite colors together!
 
I had a great time making this card:
 
 
I chose Candy Man from Di's Digistamp and used a background paper from Doodlebug I bought just before Christmas. I glittered the mice's hats and the holly berries and added lots of sequins to give my card some sparkle.
 
Don't forget to have a look at what my teamies did this week: you can find their cards here together with last week's winner and Top 3.

Bugaboo 6th Birthday Bash - Day 7.

Well... last card for Bugaboo 6th Birthday Bash!
 
There's a recipe to follow today:
 
 
1 Animal, 2 Layers and 3 Brads, Bling or Buttons.
 
This is my card:
 
 
 This cute little Chameleon is my last purchase from Bugaboo. I spotted it a while ago on a DT card and this was the perfect occasion to buy it!
 
I colored it with Copics and mounted it on papers from Kesi'Art (clouds) and from Moda Scrap (wood). Clouds are from a die by Taylored Expressions.
 
I think it's simply adorable!
 
Well, tomorrow is the big day! Fingers crossed and I may win an image from Bugaboo!

Bugaboo 6th Birthday Bash - Day 6.

Hello!
Here I am with a new card for Bugaboo 6th Birthday Bash!
 
Day 6 is inspired by a photo:
 
 
Inspired by both the cake and the animals, I made this:

 
My stamps are: Make it Snappy - Happy Birthday and Sock Monkey Boy both available in Bugaboo shop. I used my Copics and some glitter on the pink part of the cake.
The flower paper is from Lawn Fawn while the orange one comes from my paper stash (it should be from Echo Park).
 
Well, I wait for the 7th challenge to come live to make my last card!

Bugaboo 6th Birthday Bash - Day 5.

Here I am again today for a new card for Bugaboo 6th Birthday Bash Challenge!
 
Day 5 is about humor:
 
 
and this is my card:
 
 
 This snake is another digi I bought for these challenges. Even if I don't like snakes, this one was far too funny to leave it in the shop!
I added mustaches to make it even funnier and added a sentiment from Technique Tuesday.
Clouds are made with a Taylored Expression die.
The striped paper is from a pad I found in a local store while the yellow paper is from Lawn Fawn.
 
This is the only way I can like snakes!

 The cute lion and elephant toppers are two different images which I put together on the same line. Papers are from Craft Asylum.

Good morning!
It's that time of the year: Bugaboo is having their birthday party!
 
Last year I took part in their challenges and this year I'd like to be part of the celebrations too!
 
This year it's all about Wild Animals and Birthdays of course!
 
Day 1 (well... last saturday) had this inspiration:
 
 
This is my card:

 
Although I have tons of stamps from Bugaboo, I treated myself with some new ones which could fit the Wild Animal theme of these challenges.
This one is Bobblehead Animal Greeting - I Didn't Forget. I colored it with Copics and used papers from Echo Park (Country Drive).
 
I'm a bit behind schedule, I have only another one ready to be posted but I'll try to join everyday. Be prepared to see some more posts for Bugaboo Birthday Bash!

Love You.

Good morning!
 
I have a new card to show you today, one I made "just because" a while ago but never found the time to blog about it.
 
One of my new year resolutions is to blog about - and list in my Etsy shop - all the cards, tags, journal cards etc. I've made recently but which have never "seen the light".
 
I start today with this cute little Valentine card:
 
 
The image is from DigiStamp Boutique and is called Love You Buffy.
I love the acqua/green background with the red butterflies!
 
This little card will be available in my shop later today.
New cards and tags and journal cards and... lots of new things are coming, stay tuned!

Christmas Card Challenge # 6 - Anything Goes.

Good morning and welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
 
This week it's Anything Goes!
 
 
And I made this:

 
I wanted to use my new stamp from 2 Cute Ink called Gingerbread Santa. I chose a patterned card and a background paper I found in a magazine.
Although I loved it, something in my mind kept telling me there was something wrong... I finally discovered I made a similar card last year: same base card, same paper and even a similar image of a gingerbread...
Anyway, I love it, this cute little Gingerbread is sooo cheerful, it makes me happy!
 
Have a look here and see the great cards the DT has made this week!
