Number 3,6, 7, and 11

Love this colour combo, caribean and chocolate chip.
This was a hard sketch for me!

I would love to hear your thoughts about those cards!!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Number 5

Sketch number 9 and 10.

All 12 sketches done!!!

I cann't believe it but I did finish all the 12 sketches from anni-VERVE-sary!!

Three of those you have already seen and I will try to post the rest, yep all 9 of them.

We are going on holidays on Saturday so I am pretty sure my stamping time is over for this week, well I got my fix with all those fun sketches.

Thanks for looking and I would love to hear from you, let me know what's your favourite, have a great day, Anja

P.S. Number one is not my favourite at all, but I don't have more time to make another one.

Here is sketch number 8 and 12.

The third one...........

This is the 4th sketch from 12 and I know, I didn't do number 3 yet.
Just working on them.........but is busy here.
We have to go to a wedding celebration this afternoon but I wanted to post this card before we go.
Some of the pieces are leftovers and I started playing with them, following the sketch, I am happy with the result.
The picture isn't the greatest but the card is done, 9 more to go.
Have a good day, Anja

My second Verve sketch, AVS02

My second card for the Verve anniversary sketches, there are gonna be 12 in total so I am not really keeping up.
But I am hoping that maybe in the weekend..........we will see.
Enjoy this day, and thanks for looking, Anja

Something old, something new........

It's Friday and time for another challenge from Sharon,
Today the challenge is to use an old stamp or a newer one and something else "old".
The card I made is done with a Penny Black stamp, fairly new to me,
the saying is from Verve stamps (also fairly new) and the pin is old,
very old, I had to dig for them.........and the beads........really old, didn't know I had them.
So an old pin, some beads and a drop of glue makes a pin, a very cheap one, I just love it, that must be the "Dutch touch" LOL!
Thanks for looking and have a great day, Anja

Thanks for looking and have a great day, Anja

Finally another card..........

Finally I made a card this week........there was just no time and when I had a change last night, nothing worked. I made a mess, tried a lot of things but nothing accomplished.
Today I had more luck. I have used this colour combo and flower before but I really like it. Wasabi, cool caribbean and teal.
For the flower I used my twinkling H2O's and silver stardust pen.
For the scalloped border I used my long rectangle nestabilities.
Pretty simple and pretty basic but I feel good about this one.
Hope you are all enjoying this nice weather, thanks for looking, Anja

Simply white, ssnotime#46

Today the challenge from Sharon was to keep it simply white, check it out at

I found it a hard but elegant challenge and this is what I made for it.

There was no stamp time this week, just busy with farm and life we are hoping to finish straw tomorrow. There is wheat and straw in lots of places in my house too but it is nice that the boys are very helpful.

Please let me know what you think of this card since I am not sure.

Wishing you all a good weekend, and thanks for stopping by, Anja
