Birdie house

I arrived back home last Saturday morning and I am very happy to be at home! And more than that I am very happy that yesterday I could take part at the art workshop that is organised every 2 weeks here in Timisoara. We have had a very nice working session building some nice birdhouses. And I really wanna show you mine. Here is the bird house hanged in the tree:
And here is me with my creation:
This perfect photos are made by a very dearly friend of mine Flore. You can see her creations here.
The birdhouse is very easy to make. Unfortunately I don't have a step by step tutorial for it. I am planning to make another bird house so I promise I will take some step by step photos and share them with you.

Oh...and since my bird house has plenty of flowers on it (in the paper I mean *wink*) I am entering it to the 17th challenge over Lia Stampz blog

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy weekend!

By the time you will read this post I will probably be somewhere in the air between Copenhagen and Timisoara or somewhere in the airport checking the stores (*wink*). Yes... you guessed it right! I'm flying home today! Yuhuu! 
I just wanted to schedule this post to wish you a very happy and relaxing weekend. I am sure mine will be relaxing. And since I am here  I will also share with you this card I made with the beautiful sentiment from There She Goes clear stamps. 
I went for a clean and simple look to enhance the beauty of this sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs!

Any occasion

Do you need a special occasion to make a card? Of course you don't ... me neither ;)
The card that I will share with you today is a card that I made several weeks ago just for fun. I had just bought the paper that I used in it, and the stamp and I just wanted to make something with it. I love the colorful background paper and the buttons. Sorry for the bad image but I had to light it up a little bit because it was more darker than I wanted. 
I like making cards just for fun and not only for a challenge or using a sketch or so. For this card I started with cutting out the first layer of paper. The stamp was already stamped on a piece of white carton and I had also some leftover paper in hand. I just put them together in various positions and this one I loved it better... 
And so I created a card that I can use for any occasion!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy birthday my dear!

Already 9 posts in May? And were only in 15th ... woow... that's a new record for me. And I am very proud of myself for that. I hope I can achieve the target of 1 card per day... so keep fingers crossed and bake some cards babe (*wink*). 
Well... but how can someone not post since there are so many reasons and birthdays to celebrate this month!!! Today is another birthday celebrated! It's my boyfriends birthday! Happy birthday sweety! 
Unfortunately, being far away from home, we will not celebrate it in a grand manner. Just some beers with some coworkers and maybe a movie night or so. We will see. 
But for now I am here today to show you the card I prepared for him. I was very happy the other day when I found these little bike paper clips. And since he likes biking (well...we both do) I thought it's a very good idea to use them in my card for him. 
I used for it the Deconstructed sketch number 51.
Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs!

Thank you kindly

Hope you had a great time at the MOABH 2012 blog hop yesterday. If you missed it here is a link to my post.
This weekend was Mother's Day weekend celebrated in the USA. With all the Mother's Day cards that were posted all over the blog land I got into the spirit again and created a card thinking of my mother. In Romania we celebrated this special holiday on 8th of March but I think I can get used to celebrate it twice in the same year... or even better... every weekend in the year ;).
Now on to my card... I cased the beautiful card shown as inspiration over at CASE Study Challenge blog. It is the first time when I tried to stamp an image with two different colors and I loved how it turned out. On the stamped image I layered a sheet of transparent paper.The label is cut with Spellbinder labels dies and he sentiment is Layers Of Color. I was very happy to find this sentiment that suits just perfect with my card.
Thanks for visiting!
Hugs!

Not only that, but we're also going  to give YOU a chance to win some fabulous prizes! To find out how, please go to the There She Goes' Blog and read the simple instructions.
Today I am the happy customer that will feature Birdie Wishes stamp set. I love the stamps that it contains and also the sweet sentiments.

Now on to my cards. Let me present you firs the card that I made for a special birthday that is approaching. I am not going to say which one because that person could read my post and I will spoil all the fun (*wink*). 
Aren't those birdies sweet? I think they are so I decided also to use them for a background on a little note card. I could use this one to let special messages to my boyfriend, don't you think? 
Ok... now on to my third card of today! I thought to my self I have to let you see also the *Christmas* part of this lovely stamp set. So even if I am not in a *Christmas* cards mood, I did my best to make this one here for you today.

Dance, laugh, love, live

Hello hello!
Are you having a good day? Well... my day started in a nice manner. The sun woke me up around 7 o'clock. My boyfriend prepared the breakfast meanwhile I was preparing for a new working day.  Nice... don't you think? 
So I decided to share with you today a cheerful card that I made several days ago. The stamp used is  from There She Goes Clear stamps. I love this sentiment so much! Is so fun and can be used for any occasion!
Oh... and since we are taking about There She Goes... don't forget to come by on Saturday (13'th of May) for much more inspiration using TSG stamps.

5th of May

I know I know... today is the 6th of may but never the less I have to right about yesterday so the title of the post will be 5th of May.
I am a little bit late with this post because yesterday I was at work and I didn't get to finish the cards till late at night. Why do I had to do that? Well.. because yesterday two close persons celebrated their birthday. One was Corina, one of my best friends and the other one was Tibi, my step dad. Unfortunately, I didn't get to take part in any of the celebrations because yeah...I am still in Copenhagen.
Now let's see the two cards I prepared for them. Let me tell you from the beginning that both of the cards are using the deconstructed sketch number 50.
This first card is for Corina. I used some newly purchased paper from Tilda. The die cut is from the same collection. I think the collection is called Garden.
 This second card is for my step dad. The sentiment is from There She Goes Clear Stamps : Birdie Wishes stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!

Happy Birthday Anda

Today is my dear friend and colleague Anda's Birthday and I prepared a surprise card for her. Unfortunately she won't be receiving it till after I will get back from Denmark, but at least she can see that I didn't forget about her birthday ;) .
Now here is my card for her:
I used this week's deconstructed sketch for it. I love this sketch... it is so versatile!
And the girl with the muffin is from Sparkle Creations. I find this little girl very cute. I paper pieced her dress with some leftovers from some My Minds Eye - Miss Caroline collection. In fact the hole design paper is from this pretty collection. And last but not least, the sentiment is from There She Goes - Birdie Wishes.

Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs!
