Cool ride

Wouldn't it be nice to go for a ride in this cool car from Clear Dollar Stamps?
Maybe not in the winter but I would love to do that in the summer. I was inspired for this card by a card on the blog from Clear Dollar Stamps, another old timer was coloured in those colours and I really liked it. The colours from those cars were so different than what we are used to nowadays. I have also used some borders from Cuttlebug, hard to see in the picture.
Thanks for looking, Anja

Happy New Year

When I was typing this post I got a nice phone just the card got posted.
Anyway, I did it again, I forgot to send a Christmas card to some people........every year you think you are not gonna forget I made some Happy New Year cards with this cute snowman stamp. We finally got some snow here and today it looks rather nasty outside and the roads are very slippery. I think this was the first green Christmas for us here in Canada, nice for driving but it looked, let's say, interesting.
Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #50

Two posts in one day! The snow keeps coming down and I am really enjoying myself in my craft room/space.
This picture doesn't do the card justice but I can't get it any better.
The card is for a 50th wedding anniversary and for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge,
you can check it out here
I wanted to use the pearls but also the old silver accents, this is a square card and it's busy but I like it. When using the Just Rite stamps I seem to be in an all elegant style mood, it's too bad the picture isn't the greatest, the card looks way better IRL.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

More Just Rite......

Those new Just Rite stamps makes you want to try different things, I am having a lot of fun with them. Getting some punches out of the drawers and such stuff.
I especially love it that the stamps go so well with the Nestabilities. Anyway, I am back to the kitchen to prepare for tomorrow...
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Love how this card turned out, the colours are so sharp together and the Just Rite stamps........

really like them. I have no trouble liking any "new" thing for me, LOL!

Some last Christmas cards

I have to admit that I did not make all my Christmas cards this year....... I have made some, as much as I could and the rest came out of a box. Since I needed a few more , I made a couple of this kind and now I am all done, just in time! I had decided that as much as I love cardmaking, I don't need the stress! Maybe I should start earlier or make them in the summer as I used to do a few years back, oh well, Christmas isn't about the cards!

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by, Anja

More cards.....

This is the "masculine" card to go in the set for my friend, the idea for this card is not from myself. My DH got a card like this and I have used her idea to make this one (thanks Jeannette).
Pink, green, flowers and bling.....all the things I really like, hope she likes it too.

Christmas preparations are on it's way, presents are wrappes and the grocery list is being made.

I am not looking forward to go to the grocery store this week, but I shouldn't complain, I am blessed that we can do so.
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Happy times!

The dinner table is full again at our house!! And I am so enjoying these times!
On top of that I had some stamping time, so much fun! This card is one of a set of 3 for a friend, she has asked me to make a couple of sets of cards and of course I said yes.
The flowers are from a set of Nestabilities, I had them for a while but didn't really use them, till I got the idea of inking them up when the die is still in, I know, the package says that you can do that..... So now you can have any colour you need, I was impressed with myself LOL!
Hope you are all enjoying this special time of the year, thanks for stopping by, Anja

Jet lag is wearing off......

The jet lag is wearing always takes me a couple of days to get back in to my routine.
This card took me forever....such a simple card but I couldn't do it. I was afraid I left my creativity in Holland.
We had a wonderful trip, way to short but we knew that. We had a great time with family and friends, enjoyed every minute and ate way too much. Now it's good to be home again.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

Masculine card

This is a card from last week, didn't think I made a picture but apparently I did.
The tree has flowersoft on it, and the church is stamped twice and popped up.
For me it's an okay card, oh well, it is as it is, take care, Anja

A cased shaker card

My first shaker card, or I think it is, I bought those handy things, don't know how you call them but they make it very easy to make a shaker card. Oh and the idea of the card is not mine, I have made a few changes and I am happy with it.
Today I am getting ready to leave for our trip to Holland, I have 2 more cards to show you so I have scheduled them to appear over the next couple of days, if blogger is nice to us.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, I'll be back in a week, Anja
