Greeting farm girl

It took me a while to finish this card, so many times I sat down at my table and the phone would ring or somebody else needed me......So I got lots of time to think about it, LOL!
The girl is from Greeting Farm and the sentiment from Close to my Heart, the dp from DCWV.
Of course I had to use my Nestabilities, MS borderpunch and a label punch, the flowers, bling and ribbon are from my collection. The girl is watercoloured with Tombo's and she has some stickles on her dress.
The card matches the weather here, sunny and bright, I am happy with it.
Hope your day is going great, thanks for stopping by, Anja

More for CIC 13

Another card for CIC 13, you can still play too, it's an awesome challenge, go check it out HERE.
Flowers are my favourite so I had to play again. I see other people use the fancy tags from Spellbinders this way and I wanted to try it too. The flower stamp is from Clear Dollar Stamps from the set Charlie Daisy and the sentiment from Cool ride. It really helps if you have an iventory of your see what you have, sometimes you don't get to use the other fun stamps that come with a set, like this flower that comes with a Charlie set.
The white little dots are made with liquid pearl and the butterflies have a dot of light blue stickles in the center.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

Soft, cool colours for CIC 13

It was so nice to sit and play in the cool basement after a day of being outside for track and field. We had an awesome day, lots of personal bests and cheering for each other, but warm it was.
This card is for CIC 13, check out the details here you'll have till June 3!!!
I am planning to submit some more flower cards, you know I love them.
I went through my collection from Clear Dollar Stamps and came up with this, the leaves and sentiment are from the set Silhouette Wishes and the flower is from Charlie Daisy. For the colours I have picked celery with cameo, the background is made with an embossing folder with flowers ( now I can't think of the company, isn't it Craft...), a MS punch for the borders, a brad, bling and ribbon from my collection and Nestabilities for the shape. The little flower in the center is made with a little punch.
I am happy how the card turned out! Hope you like it too!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Teenage boy

A card for a teenage boy....I better get used to it, LOL!
I need one for tonight so I spent some time downstairs, it's not my best card but I hope it will do.
The guy is from Greeting Farm and I have coloured him with Prismacolour pencils and gamsol, dp from my leftover bin, no clue who made it.
The rest is pretty basic.
I am hoping to finish my big book of stamps this week......I am still working on that, and also that this week will be a better week. Maybe we can have a plain normal week, even a boring one would be great, LOL!
Thanks for stopping by, take care, Anja

Happy Anniversary!

This week a lot happened, it was busy to begin with but other things happened too. Without going into too much detail....let's talk about the card.
This card is for a friend, who is leaving this weekend to go on a nice trip, I know, I am too late to give her the card before she goes, but she understands.........
The stamp is from CC design, and the sentiment from Inkadinkadoo. The dp is from DCWV, the corner die from CB, the flower and border made with MS punches, some stickles and Nestabilities and the lace is from Fabricland.
And you probably know by now that the cute couple is watercoloured with Tombo's.

CDBC#5, Sarah Kay girl

On this Monday morning I am looking at our calendar is this week and it's pretty full, with appointments to go to, stone picking, dentist check ups, track and field day, getting new chickens, my dh is a model in a fashion show for a fundraiser and I am his dresser, lots of fun things not the stone picking but that's the time of the year, sigh.
So I am not sure how much stamping time there will be left, but today I have a card to share.
It's for the challenge over at Laurie's blog, and you are to use blue and green on your main image and you can use other colours in your card. I think I stretched the challenge a can read the details here.
The girl from Sarah Kay is watercoloured with Tombo's, the dp is from DCWV and the sentiment from Hero Arts. I have added a tiny bit of stickles on the bows in her hair and the flowers in her hand.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

Here comes the bride...

Over at SGD they have some really great deals going on, go on over and check it out! This cute stamp is just one of them. How can you resist that!!
This card is for a wedding shower and I have stamped Emma with versafine on regular white paper, carefully used my brush with twinkling H2O's to give her some colour and shine. Her dress is done with some pearly white, hard to see in the picture. You can't use too much water, but it will work. After she dried, I cut her out and put the card together. With the help of some punches from MS and EK,Nestabilities, the label punches from SU, and to top it off some stickles and ribbon from my box.
The card is already sold, that's the part I love, when people buy my cards!
Hope you are having a great day, thanks for looking, Anja

Same flower...

This flower was still laying around my desk, so I decided to use it again.
Artichoke and almost amythyst this time. The flower is watercoloured with Tombo's and stickled up after it was dry.
The sentiment is from Close to my Heart. Borderpunch from MS and the fancy tag is from Nestabilities.
I am also working on some challenges....I need a little bit more time before I can post them.
Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Happy Father's day

Lucky for me, I found this new set from Just Rite in Novi, it's called by the Sea and I got the last one. It was one of the things I wanted to look for.
It's a great set for masculine cards, you know the hard ones, LOL!
I have stamped this image on watercolour paper and watercoloured it with Tombo's.
The one borderpunch is from MS and the chain one is a new one from EK. It cuts it out like this,
great for this card. The seagulls (spelled right?) are from CDS, I had a lot of space still to fill so I found them easily in my very organized stamp book, LOL!
I was tempted to add some stickles but decided not to do it.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Baby card

After spending the day in Novi and surroundings, I got so many new ideas..... and some new stuff! ( The organizing is going great, I am working on my clear stamps and that's the biggest pain to do but the rest is mostly done.)
Yesterday I made this baby card, the paper is from DCVW and the cute, little stamp from Basic Grey. The borderpunch is from Fiskars, sentiment from SU.
Simple layout, I didn't want to cover up the dp too much. I am happy with this card, hope you like it too.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Just letting you know.....

Just letting you know why I am not stamping...........I am organizing, and I mean big time organizing.
Weeks ago I did my ribbon, love the way it is now and I also started stamping all my stamps in a binder...............then I quit because I was I bit overwelmed................but now I am finishing it.
Can you believe it, ALLLLLLLLLLLLL my stamps stamped in one binder???
And tomorrow a bus full of ladies is going to Novi and I am one of them.
Perfect way to start Mother's day weekend.
Wishing you all a great Mother's day weekend, take care, Anja

Where did my mojo go?

I sit at my table surrounded by lots of nice stamps, paper, embellishments, punches, different colours..................and all I can come up with is pink again and flowers, grrrr.
Maybe my creativity is taking some time off.....I know it happens to all of us some times.
So I guess I'll hang in there and see what happens.
Hope your day is going well, thanks for stopping by, Anja

Take care, Anja

Hope you like pink..........

Hopefully you like pink as much as I do.......I had so many ideas flowing through my head but it didn't really come out.........all I came up with was pink and flowers again, sigh, sigh.
A long time ago I had made a similar card, though it was in purple and green , so not even the design is anything new. Oh well, I searched through my own old blog posts and at least I made a card.
The laundry is calling my name, loud and clear, so I guess I better go.........

Pink, flowers and a new punch...

Yesterday we had a lot of fun celebrating National Scrapbook Day at SGD!!
I even had some time to shop myself.....I got one of the new EK punches, the flower one.
So pretty, love it! I can't show you a picture of the make and take I did, they are all gone and I even gave the sample away at the end of the day. It was a Mother's day card in pretty colours. pink, purple and olive green. I do have some scraps of paper left, maybe I'll make a card with those.
Today is a much needed quiet day and I took some time to make a card. The flower is from Clear Dollar stamps, coloured with prismacolours and Gamsol.
I can't remember from whom the sentiment is.
Hope you are having a great day too, thanks for stopping by, Anja
