My wonky Christmas tree


I'm back with the second card, as promised! My first one is HERE, in case you missed it... 

Just like the first one, this card was made with a border stamp from the same Recollections stamp set. This time I used Pear Tart, Teal Zeal and New Sprout Memento inks to create my Christmas tree. I added some Diamond Stickles to it as well as to the edges.... one never has enough sparkle on a Christmas card and besides, this stickles stuff is very addictive... I can barely stop once I've started :) 

Challenges entered:
Craft Stamper Magazine - Take It, Make It: November (use non-christmas stamps to create a christmas card)
Try It on Tuesdays - Christmas is coming
"Less is more" - Jingle all the way (anything Christmasy)

Thank you for visting! I will be back with something fun hopefully soon! Can't wait to read your comments! I appreciate every single one of them! 

Big hugs,

Hi, lovely people!

I'd like to thank you for all your sweet comments recently! It is not easy to adjust to a full-time job, leaving the babies at home, but coming home to such sweet comments makes things so much better :) I will be visiting shortly myself... before I do though I have two last minute cards that I've been wanting to show you since the weekend, but couldn't. Why, you ask... it's so dark when I get up and I come home in a dark again... I simply cannot seem to take a decent photo! Time to get or make a light box! Well, I took pics this morning, they are not as light and bright as I'd like, but they will give you an idea of what the cards look like... I say CARDS, because I have two to show you. I promised, right?! ;) I will do it separate posts though so I can enter them into a challenge I made them for...

These cards were made with the Craft Stamper Challenge in mind. The design was created using a border stamp by Recollections and my Memento Inks. Let me tell you a little bit about my card no 1...

Joy the world...


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? What a freezing cold day it was today here in London! I'm taking my winter puffy fluffy parka tomorrow morning! It was my first day in my new job today and it was a great day! All colleagues are lovely and after sitting two fun test required by the agency I had some fun getting to know their systems... more to be done tomorrow! I missed the blogland though because my blackberry is on the way out and no longer displays pictures, doesn't lock and getting online is always accompanied by a prayer followed by a massive fail! I'm definitely getting an iphone soon! I will then be able to keep in touch with you all more once I have one... for now, I will be probably a bit quiet during my days and will be catching up later at night. Please bare with me!

Today I have a quick post for you where I'd like to share a wintery card which I made the other day...

My Whimsical Christmas Girl


How are you all doing? What a day I've had today!!! Absolutely crazy, but good crazy! Very good! :)

You know how much I love journaling, but you may have noticed that I haven't shown you much of that of late. I like to draw faces and I love sketching just for myself... there are things that I share and that I don't as much... there is a lovely challenge over the **ART*JOURNAL*JOURNEY* (I hope I got the stars right :)) called 'Inspired by Masters'. I have been dying to join Susi's challenge for some time and when I found out about Valerie's choice of a theme I thought I'd have a go.... this time i decided to share! Not only because I got inspired by

Twelve Tags of Christmas: My Winter Wonderland Tag

Hello friends!

Loll's Twelve Tags of Christmas event is well on the way and you have seen some amazing creations from my fellow guest designers and today is my turn to share my creation that I made for this special event!

Loll will share her and my tag on her gorgeous blog Stamping with Loll where you can also find links to the previous tags.

I thought to myself, a special occasion deserves a special crafty make so I really took some time to create this tag and I hope you will appreciate all details...
