Blue and green

Hi there!
How are you?
It has been a busy day; I left home this morning at 7.30 AM and back home at 8.00 PM...Working all day and a team meeting till 7.00 PM. 
We had another period of days with temperatures below zero and a bit of snow today. I know every season has its charm but I have seen enough of the charm of winter; looking forward and ready for spring!
I am here to share  for a card I made a few weeks ago. Not filled to the brim with all kinds of details but just some paper, use of a border die, a button and again some twine ( already getting tired of twine here? Sorry..)
But it tuined out as I had in mind; fresh, bright and when there is blue know...
Button and twine from my stash, border die from Marianne Design and a piece of Tilda paper.  That's all:)

And here is my card:

Hoping you are all well and enjoying the daily routine of a normal week in Fenruary.

You felt it!

Well hello there!
Just like all of you life is busy around here.
I received some good news recently. In 2006 I passed my exams for a diploma which now is equal to the current diplomas required in the financial services. ( I am working at an insurance company) That means I still have to learn but but it's less compared to what I have been learning the last few months.. (And the exams are not that difficult.) I  have to learn and make exams for what they call here  "Permanent Education". It's a sort of annual update and I have to prepare for 4 small exams. I already signed in for two exams at March, 14th and March 21. The last two exams are planned for April, 12th. It still means learning but not as much and the books are a lot thinner:) I just got them today; one book contents 50 pages  and the other one 98 pages (including the cover and pages to jot down notes hee hee).
 Enough of that; on to my card! 
A fun challenge started today at the City Crafter Challenge Blog

Tuesday Trigger "Cross my heart"

Just in time to post my card for this weeks'Tuesday Trigger over at the Mxie Fab World.
This is the photo inspiration:

I had so much fun making this card; although I guess my aqua is a bit too dark... It's filled with items that I bought recently. Washi tape and twine are my favrotie items to use and after waiting for 2 weeks my first box from Papertrey Ink arrived :) I had this wreath stamp on my wish list for such a long time and now I am so so happy that I got it:)
Here is my card:

Enjoy your Sunday! Stella X

Here is the inspiration photo:

I tried to make a card with my focus on a color which is not my forte . And I know now for sure that it  will always be a challenge for me to use red on a card:) And on top of that the photo is a bit blurry; Murphy's law I guess...
On to my card:
Yes, friends always........

Enjoy your evening and sorry for being too late posting this....
