I went with the fox.
But gave the theme a twist
And made a card as bright as daylight...

I am addicted to this cutie from Lawn Fawn;and gave it bit of color with my pencils.The sentiment is also from Lawn FawnAnd for once; no sequins but enamel dots :)

Lift Challenge #94

In between work and study I managed to squeeze in some time for a card.(I have to re-exam in the beginning of November; I didn't pass my exam in August)
This card is made for the currentLift Challenge.We're supposed to lift this card:

A great design to lift and perfectfor another Christmas card.

I used my star embossing folder for the white background. You can't see it very well in the photo; but if you take a closer look you can see it:)And finished it with silver tinsel and a sequin:

City Crafter #284

Hello and good morning!
It's Tuesday again and  it's my turn to host the
 new challenge at theCity Crafter. This weeks' theme is:
"In to the wood"

(photo credit)

Create a card or project and add something related to wood. 
It could be an embellishment, a woodgrain stamp ,
 an embossingfolder with woodprint etcetera. But NO tree!

In an attempt to decrease my huge stash of patterned
 paper I choose a paper with a wood print:

And added few touches of gold. The sentiment is partly in gold and partly in wood. I placed the wooden sentiment on top of a print; it adds some depth to the sentiment.

I also had to create somethng and focus on white.I love CAS in case you did not know :)I used an embossing folder, paired it up with a few touches of blackand golden enamel dots

And a sentiment; that's all:

World card making day


It's World Card Making Day and I had a few hours to spend in my craft room. I made a christmas card:

I decided to use patterned paper from the Girls'Paperie that I hoarded a few years ago. To be honest; I had to use it because my stash of papers and paper pads is HUGE.And it really is time to use them :) My blue snowflake is not the same shade of blue as you see in the patterned paper. But it's the best possible match with my colors of blue cardstock.

Have a wonderful weekend!Stella
