Christmas Gifts part 1

Have you decided what gifts to give for Christmas? I did! And I can't still believe that. Each year I have a problem in choosing the "perfect" gift for each of my friends and family and after wondering through the crowded shops I eventually end up buying useless things because of my lack of ideas.
This year I started thinking of Christmas gifts earlier (not to early though) and I am planning to give only handmade gifts. I have a few ideas so as soon as I finish them I will post them here. Maybe you will get inspired and find some good ideas.
Today I will present you the first finished gift. I embellished an agenda made from recycled paper. Here is a picture before I started to work on it.
And here is the final result:
And here is a closeup on point of interest:
Now stay tuned because there will be other ideas to come.

Have a wonderful week!

Quick and easy

It's time for TSG131. This week's theme is Quick 'n easy... and kind of this is what I have prepared. 

Last year I saw this amazing idea of folding a Christmas tree and I saved the link for future usage. When I saw the challenge on the TSG blog I new exactly what I should try. For instruction on how to make this tree please address to Connie Babbert here. You can find there all the needed instructions.

Now I will let you enjoy each card of the set and feel free to let your opinion in a comment. 





Thanks for stopping by!

Time for RCC29

There is just a little bit time till the end of the challenge so I still have time to post. It will be a quick post since the time flies and the challenge closes.

I made this card on Saturday but didn't get to post it till now. I used the sketch that was published for the RCC challenge number 29.


The stamp is from the Layers of Color Art Stamp. Love those stamps. It is always a pleasure to create something with them.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!

Back to cards

I know, I know... long time no posting, but I didn't get the time to post. I had a busy life since September.
First it was a one month trip in Copenhagen, than it was vacation in France and now I am finally at home and I am trying to catch up with spending time with my family, cleaning, visiting friends.
First let me tell you about Copenhagen. It is a very beautiful city. You should visit it some day. 


The month spent in Copenhagen was very nice. The weather was amazing. It was sunny almost every day. In the week-ends was also a little bit warmer. The architecture around the city is pretty amazing. The new and the old are very nice combined. I stayed in a very beautiful 2 bed apartment with an amazing view: 


Each week-end I had the opportunity to visit something else and I had to choose between the various museums that are free on Sunday, the Rosenborg Palace which has an amazing garden where you can spend some quite time -  it's perfect for reading, various shopping centers, boat trips. I loved it. I also found the people there very friendly.

In vacation was also very nice and relaxing. We visited Cote d'Azur:  Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Monte Carlo. These all are very nice cities, with old markets, narrow streets and little family restaurants. 

Now...I will share some cards:




Have a wonderful week!
