Hope you like pink......lots of pink...

Hope you like pink and flowers, lots of them,LOL!
I had a plan in my head, didn't exactly come out as I thought. So now I have a card with lots of pink, green, flowers and bling! The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps, the flowers are made with dies from Crealies and for the center I used a little punch. The leaf die is from Quick cut.
French script from SU is stamped in the background and the embossed panel is a folder from Sizzix.
Hope to get some time to stamp today, enjoy your day and thanks for looking, Anja

Just a simple card.....

A very, simple card for today, since I had no time and no inspiration at all.
By the way, it looks better IRL.
The dp is from Linen Closet, beautiful papers, perfect for elegant cards.
Today I have some organizing to do in my craft room, the mess is unbelievable, it's no wonder I can't do much.
So I am off to do some much needed work, take care, Anja

Happy Birthday, son!

Yesterday our second oldest son had a birthday and we drove all the way up north to visit him! We had a lovely visit and went out for dinner, we had a great time.
Here is the card I made for him, a while ago I saw those tool embellishments at the Dollar store and thought they would look great on a masculine card, well, here they are. They go perfect with this new embossing folder from Crafts too. I embossed it and then sanded it lightly. Stamps are from Just Rite, ribbon from SU and the scraps of paper from Basic Grey.
Later on I thought, that maybe the 2 little brads should have been a different colour....
It can't always be perfect, LOL!
Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Remembrance Day card? CC296

On Remembrance Day I started to colour this image of poppies, didn't go very well so I left it and last night I tried again, This time it's much better, red is a bit challenging for watercolouring with Tombo's. The background is a Crafts too folder, the sentiment from Verve stamps, some Nestabilities, ribbon and SU punches.
The colour challenge on splitcoast this week is poppy red, tempting turqoise, white and a neutral of your choice, so this card is right on, I think.
Hope you are having a great day, thanks for looking, Anja

Elegant card for your special day

So many things going on, so little time to stamp.....but I am not complaining, it's all good! After a productive scrapbookweekend with lots of fun and 33 pages done, getting ready for a workshop and having our oldest son home after being gone for 8 months.....I am really enjoying this time, and tomorrow we are driving up north to celebrate the birthday of the one that is not home at the moment. Love my family!
It's also such nice weather, way too nice not to spend time outside before Mr. Winter comes with all it's glory. But today I did make a elegant one with Just Rite stamps and some border and corner punches. The dp is from Basic Grey, flowers out of my box, pearls to finish off this project.
Hope you like it, have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Something different

A different kind of card, and since I didn't really do any stamping this week I decided I am gonna share it with you. I am hoping Mr. Blogger is doing as I have asked him, LOL!
At first I didn't like this card at all, but after some chances it started to grow on me.
Let me know what you think, you can be honest , I can handle it.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

For a friend!

Not much activity here on my blog lately, I am going scrapbooking this weekend and I have to get ready for that. Since you can't spend all your time in your favourite room....
Today a friend has a birthday, (this one is for you, Joyce,) and since I don't see her today I am sending her this card through my blog. The image is from Penny Black, watercoloured with Tombo's.
Hope you all have a great day, thanks for stopping by, Anja
