Happy Holidays

Hi all! I am greeting you today from the sunny Copenhagen and don't be skeptical about the "sunny" word because I can really see the sun today. Actually I've seen it the hole week. So, weather is great, people are very nice, friendly around here. I like them :). Hope in the week-end the weather will be the same. I am planning to visit a local craft store.

On Monday, the girls from TSG challenged us to create a card with pizzazz. Actually, a birthday card, but unfortunately last night when I made my card I was to sleepy to see the birthday word :).
So here is my take:
The stamp is from Layers of Color Art Stamps. The sparkling embellishments are from BoBunny and were sent to me by sweet Romy Veul

Thank you very much for stopping by.
Hugs!

Case Study Challenge #56

It's been a long time since I didn't made a card for a Case Study Challenge. Last night I decided to give it a try. It's time for the 56th challenge and the inspiration card is this one:
I loved this card the moment I saw it. At first I thought I won't be able to case it, but here is my version. Let me know your honest opinions ;).

For this card I used some patterned paper that I found at the local supermarket and I was happy about this finding. The stamp is from The Love Chapter from Layers Of Color Art Stamps.

Thanks for stepping by!
Hugs!

Discovering the great outdoors

The third challenge at There She Goes blog is about  taking the paper dolls out in the outdoors. My bear and bunny, being so into chasing butterflies, wanted to climb up on some flowers in the hope of finding some butterflies. Here is the proof:


Have a day full of flowers!

Have a wonderful creative weekend!

Billiards and karting time

I just got home from town. We went with some friends for a kart race. Of course I took the dolls with me. The bear thought karting is too dangerous for him so he played some pool with the bunny.
If you think I am crazy, you shoud go to the TSG blog to find out what I am talking about.
Ok, ok, I can also tell you what's happening. The second challenge in the birthday party that TSG is throwing
requests to take the paper dolls out in town.
 So here is the proof:
(sorry about the bad, blurry picture but it was taken with the phone since I forgot the camera home)
After first round I also decided I don't like karts so I joined them in the nice peaceful game they played ;).

Have a wonderful evening!
Hugs!

There She Goes is turning 3

Happy Birthday TSG!!!
For everybody else, TSG is having a party! Great, funny challenges are posted each day! You should check their blog.
The first challenge was about creating a paper doll. I decided to use the Back in 10 stamp set for this challenge. I love the cute bear that is chasing butterflies. And the little rabbit is even cuter.
Do you remember the card that I did on Saturday? If not you can check it here.
I used the same card as a background for photographing my paper dolls.
I love how they turned out! 
The second challenge is even more fun! I am planning something special for them ;).

Have a great day!
Hugs!

Do you like fishing?

 I don't, but my future father in law does. Every Sunday morning he goes fishing.
His birthday approaches and since he enjoys fishing so much, I decided to make him a card using a fishing stamp. I found a very cute one at Lia Stampz freebie section. The sentiment is written by hand and it says 'Happy Birthday' in Romanian.
Since it's a birthday card, I will add it to Challenge #2 from Lia Stampz blog.

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs!

All tied up - RCC18

It's my third post today! Can you believe it?
Oh well, we are back from chasing butterflies and eating very good food at a very nice restaurant. It's almost 8 o'clock PM around here so I thought I should post the third card I made yesterday evening.
Last week I finally received a supper nice stamp that won at RCC4 and I thought I use it. Since at Ribbon Carousel Challenge blog is time for the 18th challenge - All tied up - I made another birthday card:


The cute girl with the cupcake is called Cupcake Ruby form Sparkle Creations. The sentiment is from Layers of Color Art Stamps.
Now it's movie time. I'm off for today! Hope the creative mood will last also the next week.
Hope you had a nice Sunday and also I wish you all the best in the new week!

Hugs!

Chasing butterflies

This weeks challenge over at the TSG blog is One Layer With Pop. When I saw the theme I thought I have to take part! So here it is my card for the challenge:
For this card I used stamps from Back In 10 stamp set from TSG. Love this stamp set! So joyful and fun. I don't know if it is readable, but just to make sure, the sentiment says "chasing butterflies". Lovely, right?
Now I have to go to chase some butterflies of my own. Me and my boyfriend are going for a walk in the woods and I am betting he will be chasing butterflies for a photography project.

Have a lovely sunny Sunday!
Hugs!

Happy Birthday

Last night was perfect for creating cards. I had so much fun creating cards and felt so inspired!
I tried to make as many cards for the challenges as I could. Now I want to present you a card which I made for the  2nd challenge hosted by Lia Stampz over on her blog. The challenge is about birthday projects. I love the challenges with this theme because they are so easy and so versatile. You just have to think of a friend and make a birthday card for him/her. So here is my card:


This cards suits Laura the best. She is also very creative. She has her own business in the flower domain, creating beautiful arrangements and bouquets. Love her style and the pieces that come out of her hand.

The stamps used in this card are from Layers of Color Art Stamps company. They have wonderful stamps that you can work with. I have to admit that for this card I got inspired from  Nina Brackett's card which you can find it here. I love Nina's creations. She has a wonderful unique style.

Have a wonderful week!
Hugs!
