Old favourite

Petal prints is a set from SU, this one will always be a favourite. So today I did ink it up again, and made this card, sentiment is from Just Rite, border punch from Martha Stewart, pretty simple and quick card to make, but I like it, hope you do too.
Have a great day, we are going camping so it will be quiet for a little bit unless I get some pre posting done...you never know, have a great day, Anja

Get well soon, Ingrid!

As you may know, Canada Post is on strike so I can't send this card to my friend in Holland who had surgery but I know she is visiting my blog so......this card is for you, Ingrid!!!
Not very personal but well meant! Good thing that the phone company is not on strike, LOL!
The stamps are from Heartfelt Creations and Just Rite, dp from Basic Grey, some punches and a tag from Grommet Tags. The border punch is from Martha Stewart. The idea with the greenery around the flower is not from myself, saw that at other peoples blogs, fun effect and easy to do.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

Much better.....



Today I sat down to make a Father's day card for my dh and it went so much better. A center step card, I think that's how you call it, easy to do and such a nice effect. I have no clue from which company the boat stamp is, it is one of those single stamps, I bought it at the show in Novi a couple of years ago. The birds are from Clear Dollar Stamps, the sentiment from Stampendous, Labels 5 from Nestabilities and some of the new twine, oh and the punches for the sentiment are from Stamping Up. Paper from a 6x6 pack of Kaisercraft, Jungle Bug.

So I am ready for tomorrow now I have to work on a graduation card for our youngest, that's on Monday, lotsssssss of time, LOL!

Have a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by, Anja

What a struggle!



I have made a card today and I am posting it, LOL! No matter what.....it was a struggle to make this card, deep sigh, 3 times I had to make the main panel, I managed to get orange ink on the first try, second try I messed up the birds, yes, that tiny little stamp!
I can't say I am happy with this card but I wanted to post something, so I did, LOL!
My mojo seems to have left me, hopefully it comes back soon, I sit in my craft room, surrounded by a lot of nice stuff and I can't come up with a card, grrr. Oh well, tomorrow is another day and after all, it is just a card. Have a great evening, Anja

Wedding card

I am ready to go to a wedding, all dressed up and high heels on....only thing missing is my dear farmer....finishing up planting the last beans. It has been a difficult planting season, too wet.
So thankfully it is a late wedding so we still have time to make it. We can have fun at the wedding and be glad that everything is planted.
On to the card...this picture doesn't do this card justice, it gets a little better if you click on it.
I have used paper with a pearl finish and embossed it, I wanted to keep the card elegant and in the colours of the wedding. Sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo. Nestabilities and some Marianne design dies.
Have a great day and thanks for looking, Anja

Penny Black birthday

After I had finished this card last night, I wasn't sure if I was gonna post it....this morning it looked a lot better, LOL! It looks like I didn't do any stamping this week but I did, just things I can't show yet. This image is from Penny Black, watercoloured with Tombo's, a long time ago.... I am honestly trying to use what is in my room....but I also went on a shopping trip and yes, I added more, so I guess, I can't win, LOL!
The dp is from Stella Rose, My Mind's eye, sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps, Nestabilities, grass border punch from MS, SU label punch, ribbon and bling from stash. The little flower is a silk one, I put a few layers together and added the brad. The colour was just perfect.
My middle sister with her youngest son are gonna be visiting from Holland for a week, looking forward to spend time with them, I am hoping to get some posts pre set.
Thanks for stopping by, Anja
