Maybe you know that I don't like Halloween (partly as I don't know to whom I can send these cards) but when I came acrosse this sweet girly mouse at Tellen's Place (you can grab it for free here ), I couldn't resist her and made this card. Papers are Doodlebugs Design which are in my stash for many years. I used nestability Peony to cut the image. Flowers, buttons, netting and brads are also from my stash. I want to enter the following challenges: CLP : Sketch Tellen's Place : Creepy/Anything Halloween Crafty Catz : Halloween Daring Cardmakers : Halloween AiFactory : Halloween Digi Doodle Shop's Best : Anything Goes Dutch Dare Card : Halloween Paper Play : A haunting we will go....

Tilda ready to go on a journey

Afbeelding
For over a month my husband suffered from atriumfibrillation and this morning he needed a reset (cardioversion) in hospital. I was so happy when he phoned after 2 hours that I could come to get him back. He is feeling good again and we hope that will be so for a long time! In March next year I go on holiday to Portugal with my mother, her sister (who is only 10 years older than me), and my daughter. Next month my aunt has her birthday, so I thought this is an appropriate card to send to her. Papers are Marianne Design, Tilda is cut with nestabilities Labels seven and coloured with copics. I made some pearls on her hat and belt with the Perlen Pen. The clasps of the suitcases are coloured with the clear Spica pen. All papers are inked with Cat's Eyes (velvet). Flowers are punched with the EK Success retro flower, wild orchid crafts and roses which I won at Menscardsworld. Leaves are punched with Mc Gill pine punch. Lace is bought on the market and I used some pink dew drops. The

New Challenge at Fairy Fun Fridays - Candy Wrapper - DT card

Afbeelding
It's time again for a new biweekly challenge at Fairy Fun Friday and this time the challenge is called Candy Wrapper.....this means that we should like to see you using something which has to do with candy. I decided to alter a package of chewing gum. I measured the package, cut DP (which is from Abbey Road) and scored the folding lines with my Scorpal. All papers are inked with Cat's Eyes' Robin's Egg. At the front I used Roocat with heart which is for sale here and I cut it with nestabilities Labels Eight. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I wrapped the package and stuck it on the right side leaving one side of the ribbon underneath the package. Around the chewing gum there is also some ribbon so you can pull it upwards. I put doublesided foam under the small Labels Eight to left some space for the ticket. On the left side another Labels Eight on which you can write your sentiment. I added a piece of ribbon with staples. Flowers are made with a Success flower

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I made this card with Debby's sketch for Penny Black Saturday Challenge 123. As this is a birthday card for a kid, I made an easel with balloons again. Recently I made such an easel and I liked the balloons on it. The papers are from a paperpack of Making Memories from the beginning of my crafter's career. The swirl is made with a Crealies stencil and the ribbon is from my stash. A side-view: Close-up of the image: Copics used: I will enter the following challenges: Lexi's Creations : Birthdays Craftalicious Challenges : Anything Goes Incy Wincy Designs : Pink & Brown Sweet Stampin Challenge : Ribbons Stempelträume : Geburtstag Thanks for passing by.

Tilda sitting on a Christmas ball

Afbeelding
This sweet little Tilda longs for Christmas and is sitting on her big Christmas ball. The papers are from Echo Park and the ribbon is from Hobby & Crafting Fun. We were 2 days out of internet and now I'm in a run because last night my mother returned from her vacation in Portugal and she invited us to go out for dinner (so she gets the time to tell us all). I am sorry I could not come round the last 2 days. But tomorrow I'll recoup my losses!

A friend in need (2nd post of today)

I made this card with a sketch from Karen's Doodles and subsequently you have to use one of their (fantastic) digi's. I choose to work with 'A friend in need' as this card is meant to be sent to the husband of one my tennisfriends who's in hospital for chemo due to a braintumour. Papers (distressed) are K&Company, the digi is coloured (as always) with my Copics, cut with Nestabilities Labels Seven and distressed with Cat's Eyes Roussillon. I did the same with the sentiment which is from a Stampology set. The border at the left is a Fiskars punch. Flowers are from my stash. I will enter the following challenges: Pollycraft : Anything Goes Fab'n'Funky : Use a digi Create4Fun : Use a digi Secret Crafter Saturday : Distressing Ellephantastic Challenge : Anything goes If the shoe fits : Distress Karen's Doodles the Netherlands : Sketch The Crafty Pad : Make something for a friend Craftalicious : Anything Goes 2Sisters Challenge : Animal Fun Stamp

Tilda has a wonderful day

Afbeelding
Tilda has a wonderful day and here in the Netherlands we're also having a nice and sunny Sunday. The sky is completely cloudless and so wonderfully blue. I have put Tilda on a nestabilities die, which I also used for the sentiment, which is Hero Arts. I paperpieced Tilda's dress and coloured her with my copics (see under; the naughty turned round one must be nr. RV10). I used my McGill punch for the leaves, some rhinestones and Stickles for the sparkling and the glitter and I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The pink ribbon (already had some glitters on it) and button are attached with scrappers floss. We bought the flowery ribbon somewhere in France while we were having a vacation. I cut off 2 of them and used 1 in Tilda's hair and 1 on the sentiment. The flowers under the roses (which are from Wild Orchid Crafts) are originally white but I have coloured them with copics RV11 and then sprinkled them all with Stickles: I will enter the following challenges: Sarah Hurl

We play Spooky at OSAAT #33

Afbeelding
Sunday...... that means a new challenge at OSAAT . We want you to go spooky. This challenge will last 2 weeks, so you have time enough to create your spooky project. For me this one meant a real challenge, because I want nothing to do with Halloween. But when I saw the fantastic papers from Panda Bear Designs and the image Too Cute to Spook from Stampin Dragon everything went smoothly. Both papers and image are for sale here. I decided to make an easelcard in order to use as much of the papers as possible. My cute spooky needed only a few copics so I only used the C series. Here's my card from aside: And here the backside: We at OSAAT are having a lot of fun things going on on the challenge blog.......you can read more about it in my yesterday's post....so pop over and take a look at the fabulous creations of the other DT members.
