My card is inspired on fruit:

The apple die is from PTI and 
the stitched circle die is from MFT.
Paired up with polka dotted paper 
it turned out a get well card:

Mixing patterns


I hope your weekend is just as good as ours!
A few months ago we invited my brothers, 
sisters, BIL and SIL, nephews, nieces, 
grandnephews and grandnieces over for a family-day.
(Or is it called a family reunion?)
They were not all able to come but 
with 22 relatives we had a fabulous day. 
Lots of talking and laughter, 
catching up, good food and lovely weather.
The memories are priceless!

And I am still enjoying my vacation
for another two weeks:)
There is a bit of inspiration coming back.
I made this card with pieces of PL cards. 
I bought a box of PL cards (Beggy Higgins "Live Brightly")
and used a few favorite dies and some silver yarn:

I love the bright patterns:

Enjoy your Sunday; 
thanks for stopping by!

Lift challenge #90


This is the first week of my vacation and
that means plenty of time for papercrafting.
But it seems that my inspiration went 
abroad and I am here at home :)

So it took me a few days with endless hours 
 on the internet looking for inspiration.
And I am getting back on track heehee.

The card I am sharing today is made 
for the current Liftchallenge.
We're supposed to create a card in 
a different shape as usual.
And add some stamping and no layering.
This is the photo inspiration:

My take is white on white and 
like Cornelie I added one layer.
I choose the star shape for a christmas card
And of course there is a deer involved:)

I cut two stars and adhered them together
 with a small strip of cardstock. A little piece of twine
 was also added if the recipient wants to hang it.
Some hemp cord and a little bell for the finishing touch:

City Crafter #276

Good morning!

It's Tuesday and that means time
 for a new challenge at the 
City Crafter Challenge blog
Today Kirsty is our host and
she picked the theme "World Traveler".
Create a project inspired by this mood board:

It is also the last week for us to have 
Suchi as our special Guest Designer
Suchi thank you so much for your fab contributions!

My take is based upon the maps in this moodboard:

 I used an old map and 
punched out the place where I live.
The sentiment was made with my label maker.
And again it turned out very clean
 and very simple:

City Crafter #275

Hello everyone!

It's Tuesday again and that means 

time for a new challenge at the City Crafter
Today it's my turn to host and this weeks' theme is:
"Around the corner"

(photo credit)

 I am asking you to create a card or project 
and use just one corner.
 And leave the rest of your card/project blank. 
For example:
Dress up a corner with a christmastree
for a CAS christmas card.
Or use your stamps to fill the corner. 
You can add a sentiment to the same corner 
or let your card speak for itself.

This is the second week that we have
Suchi as our Guest Designer
you can find more of her lovely projects on her blog.

My card has lots of white with a bit of blue and bling:)
I used one of the Scribbles dies from MFT and 
filled the background with Distress Ink (Weathered Wood)
The sentiment is cut from silver foil.

I couldn't capture the shimmer
 of the silver splatters but in real it looks great :)

You can find more inspiration from 
 the other team members on our blog
 I hope that you will join us this week; 
the winner will be invited to join us
as a Guest Designer.

 Thanks for stopping by!
