Isn't she cute?

Isn't she cute? I think she is, this Greeting Farm girl finally made it to a card....I had her coloured a while ago. Again, with prisma's and Gamsol, still didn't get my watercolour paper but I did found some more sheets, so that's good.
I really like this card myself, the little flower is made with my dies from Crealies.
I forgot where the dp is from, I ripped it out one of those little books when I started to colour and it's been a while. The stamp isn't even mine, when I get my hair done, I also get to stamp.......sometimes there is a bonus in turning grey, LOL! Angie, my hairdresser and I use each other stamps while we are waiting for the grey to disappear.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Bright Penny Black

Here is one of my neglected Penny Black stamps, she was just laying in a drawer, didn't get inked up much..................
So I used this stamp and coloured it my Prisma's and Gamsol, did some sponging, put a sentiment on and finished the card. Oh, and don't forget the stickles.
It's not that there is no new stuff or new to me stuff waiting to get some ink on them......
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

It's that time again, come on out if you like to SGD in Komoka today, check out this huge and awesome, funfilled store and do the FREE MAKE AND TAKE with me, if you like. We are making a corner bookmark this this time.
Check it out HERE.
The make and take is between 3 and 5 PM, a fun little thing to make.
It would fit with a standard size card so you could easily send it to someone.
Hope to see you there, Anja

More wedding wishes..........

Another wedding card made, I keep selling the ones I have made and we have a wedding ourselves on Saturday so I made another one. The stamps are from Inkadinkadoo, the colours are black, silver and the dp.............I think it's from CM a long time ago, not sure.
I have added another light to take a picture of my cards, but I still think you need to click on the photo to get a better look. I'll keep on trying.
Have a great day, take care, Anja

CC Design, happy birthday.

After taking a picture of this card, experiencing with some extra lights and the photo tent, I do realize that this girl is laying down on......nothing?
I should have given her at least some grass or so to lay on, she must be exhausted, lol!
Oh well, I did do some sponging, something I don't do very often because I don't want to mess up what I just coloured.
The sentiment is from Hanna stamps, dp from Basic Grey, borderpunch from MS, CB embossing border, pearls and flowers from stash.
The image is coloured with prisma's and Gamsol.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Romantic Anniversary Card

Did anybody go to the garage sale over at SGD?
Well, you can still go tomorrow. I came back with a bag full of bargains, sooooo much fun!
This is the card I made yesterday with some Just Rite and Inkadinkadoo stamps, I have to say the picture doesn't really show how the card is. I call it an elegant, romantic card, and it's for a special couple. If you click on it, you do get a better view.
Hope your day is going great, I am gonna unpack my bag........take care, Anja

Penny Black birthday!

Love, love this new set from Penny Black!! I had seen it on line when it came out.........couldn't resist, LOL!
I have been trying some different things to improve the quality of the pictures, I do have a photo tent but I think I need more lighting around it, the cards really look nicer IRL!
This image is coloured with Prismacolour pencils and Gamsol, I have hardly any of my favourite watercolour paper left and I can't get it here so my beloved Tombo's have a little break.
The pencils with Gamsol work like a charm too, so easy and the soft look is nice.
The sentiment is from Clear Dollar stamps, paper from DCWV, ribbon from stash, EK heart punch, Nestabilities and some stickles.
Hopefully the sun will come out and dry our wheat fields, so that we can get the wheat off.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Happy Sailing!

Smooth sailes and happy sailing, wow, did I tell you that we had a little sailboat for about 3 weeks? It's sold now, we are not the sailors my dh thought we could be.
It went really well till something went wrong.......the for sale sign was up again, and we have decided we are more the kayakers, nice and safe.
About the card, I have used the boat before in a similar layout, this time it's coloured with prismacolour pencils and Gamsol, this ek punch just need to be used on a card like this. A MS punch was used along the bottom.
Hope your day is going well, thanks for stopping by, Anja

CIC 15, Thank you card

The monthly challenge over at Clear Dollar Stamps is all about Gratitude, you can find the details HERE.
This time I choose to use some other stamps which is okay for the challenge.
THe image is from Inkadinkadoo, coloured with prisma's and Gamsol, the sentiment from CC Amyr designs. The little tag is made with a punch, the border with a Fiskars punch, dp from Basic Grey. Love it that the new CB dots folder is big enough for the whole front of the card! Some Nestabilities and some stickles and a pearl to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

Happy Wedding!

Happy Wedding, happy stamping, happy me! It feels so good to be in my craft room and play with my stamps! Going on vacation is wonderful but nothing beats being home!!
Tomorrow we are going to a wedding, really looking forward to it, especially to the dance in the evening, I love to dance with my husband.
But now about the card, I have kept the layout pretty similar to the Christmas card from 2 days ago, eggplant, white and silver are the colours. Sentiment from Inkadinkadoo and the main image is from Just Rite.
Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Just Rite Christmas

Last year I made a promise to myself that I would start early on my Christmas cards. I didn't like not having time to get them all done. So here I am, posting my second Christmas card and I have already made 10 in total!!!
This stamp is from Just Rite and I have used the image as a snowflake, the sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps. The rest is pretty simple, I love this clean and elegant look.
Hope your day is going well, take care, Anja

Christmas in July

We are back from 2 camping trips, lots of fun, laughter, family time. sleeping in, beach time, reading, kayaking, and way too much junk food.
Slowly we are settling in a new sort of routine, laundry is done, things are back in place, and my fridge is full with healthy stuff.
Today I sat down in my stamp space and made a Christmas card. It feels so good to stamp again!! I guess this picture isn't the best, you probably have to zoom in.
We have a wedding this Saturday so I better get going on making a card for that.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja
