Three B's!

It's been a different week, some good, some bad...
The first B for camera isn't broken, I got another Birthday, second B, and since I am "old", according to my son, who reset the settings and voila, all done, LOL! So I got some other nice presents. The third B can completeley go away now...that is the tummy bug that came to me on Easter Sunday, not so fun, but the good news is, that I didn't gain any weight this Easter and not from the birthday cake. In every situation you can find something good if you look for it, right?
Have fun watching the Royal Wedding!!

Happy Mother's day!

Mother's day is around the corner so I worked on my card, it is not really what I want so I might make another one. Sentiment is from Just Rite and the die is from Spellbinder, CB embossing folders and some punches, ribbon and bling.
Maybe the black is too dark, but I wanted the classy look...oh well, I will try again.
Happy Easter everyone and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Welcome Baby!

Brr, it's cold, baby! Spring just can't seem to come and stay so no worries about spending time inside and do some stamping.
I am slowly working on getting my box full again. This image is from Penny Black and the sentiment from Verve. I have used Prismacolour pencils and gamsol and later added some stickles.
Different colour combo, but I like it, I also coloured the bear with a pink and a blue shirt but those cards are not done yet.
Have a great day and thanks for looking, Anja

Interesting colour combo!

My camera is still not working properly, I was hoping it would be all fixed after new's not happening, but I can still take pictures, although they are off center. If you click on the picture, you can take a better look.
I was going through my little paperbooks from Holland, I really needed more paper LOL, and I decided to use this one, like the colour combo.
Then I used my new die, and punched out little flowers to put on the raised oval, the sentiment is from Just Rite, some stickles, ribbon, MS punch and bling to finish it off.
The die is from Marianne design or Joy craft, I had to take everything out of the package to save some weight in my suitcase, that's how bad it was, now most of the Dutch candies are gone, and I can start working on gettting that weight off, LOL!
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Happy Birthday, Job!

Yesterday I was blogsurfing and I came upon this card HERE.
Since I needed a boy birthday card, I was really inspired and this card is the result.

I am happy with the result, the dp is again from a pack of Action ( a store in Holland) and some scraps out of my box.

It is snowing here a little bit, isn't that sad.....oh well, I am off to my stamproom to play.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Masculine Thank you card

I needed a masculine thank you card and I didn't have a lot of box is as good as empty and I don't like that all, it's always nice to have some cards in stock, as much as I enjoy cardmaking, if you need a card now and you don't have one then it can be a bit of a struggle. You think there is too much to choose from in my craft room,LOL! But I got this one done, so easy with the Just Rite stamps and they stamp beautifully with Versafine, nice and crisp. My new Nestabilities were used, a MS punch, some bling and dp that I brought from Holland, voila! Hope you like the card too, have a great day, Anja

Let's celebrate!

Sorry, for the horrible picture, my little camera broke, deep sigh, but I have a birthday coming up... Anyway, this card is for a cute, young couple in Holland, who are having a celebration for their engagement, things are done different than here. I had this ribbon and it just came together, the heart is a button, MS punch, Nestabilities, Just Rite stamps and pewter liquid pearls. Have a great day and thanks for looking, Anja

Back with a card!

After a wonderful trip to Holland and Paris, I am back!! It was good to see family and friends and Paris with my sister was a great time, a beautiful city, very special! The weather was great, everything was blooming, the magnolia trees were beautiful.....but it looks like we are gonna get nice weather and warmer temperatures here too. Yesterday I finally got some time back into my stamp space, I sure did miss playing with ink,LOL! So on to my card, this one is made with Hero stamps, paper from my box full with paper...... MS punch, ribbon, stickles, bling, flower and label lunch (Mc Gill). I did some shopping in Holland too, got me some Joy craft and Marianne dies, can't wait to try those out and my Spellbinders came and on top of that it was the garage sale at SGD this weekend but I honestly behaved myself there, it was lots of fun to help them out and see what good deals everybody got. I am off to do some stuff in the house and we are getting friends over for lunch so probably no stamping for me today but hopefully soon. Thanks for stopping by, Anja
