Baby card

I can't believe it's been over a week since I have stamped. Life got in the way, thankfully our son doesn't need surgery at this point, he is doing a lot better. It seems like my mojo is slowly getting back too, I stamped this image from Crafter's companion and watercoloured with my Tombo's.

Hadn't done that in ages and it felt good to play with them again.

The size of this card is 6x6, those bigger images just need a bit more room.

The dp is from My Mind's eye, two borderpunches from Making Memories were used, a small heart one on the bottom and the bigger one across. The little hearts are punched with a little punch that I have had for ages and with the Punch a bunch it is finally a pleasure to use.

The sentiment is from AmyR.

I guess that's all there is to say about this card.

Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Thinking of you

The other day at the all day crop I made this thinking of you card, the stamp is from Just Rite.

The border punches from MS, some Nestabilities and flower punches. It is hard to see in the picture but there is a piece of acetate under the purple layer and things are raised up.

I was hoping that I had more to show but my mojo seems to have left me. I did organize some things in my craft space, I keep running out of room , I wonder how come, LOL!

On a good note , our son seems to be doing a little better every day, we are hoping that no surgery is needed.

Hope your day is going great, thanks for stopping by, Anja

Thank you

This past week has been quite difficult, our oldest son was in an accident and broke his skull in 4 places, his brain is okay and it looks like he is gonna be okay, we are waiting for the next scan next week and we are hoping that no surgery is required. He is home now and needs lots of rest.
Lots of you have been praying and been with us through this so far. Thanks so much!!
Last night I had some time and played with my flowers and made this card for all of you!
Honestly, the picture doesn't do it justice.
All the little flowers are punched out, inked up, shaped, goosebumped and put together.
The embossed background is a folder from Crafts too, theb bigger purple behind the sentiment is a Nestabilitie, Fleur de lis.
Little dots of the pearl pen were put on to finish the flowers.
So again, thank you all for your concerns, it is greatly appreciated!!
I am hoping that the rest of the summer will be soooooooo boring, and I am about to wrap all of my men in bubblewrap, LOL!
Have a great day, Anja

Clean and simple

Yesterday I spend the day at the rubberconvention Heirloom show in NOVI!!!

What a fun we had!! Lots of new stuff, inspiration, shopping, fun, such a wonderful day.

Of course I had to get some new stuff, you can't go all the way to Novi and then come home with nothing, right? But I did "behave", and even the border guys thought we girls all "behaved".

I got my flower tool kit, that was my first purchase for the day and it was on my list, I also learned some new things about making flowers.

So today I had a little time to play, and I made this sympathy card. It took me a while to make it, so I am not sure if the title is correct.

The cream background is embossed with a Quickcutz embossing folder, the sentiment is from

Clear Dollar stamps, flowers from punches and Crealies dies, the greenery is made with some

Marianne dies and a die from CheeryLynn. After I punched the flowers, I inked the edges, used my new shaping tools and put some Pearl mist on it. The middle pearl is done with the Pearl pen.

You will probably see more flower cards soon, you never know.

Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Just Rite birthday

An elegant card today, Just Rite and Martha Stewart pair up nicely, I would say.

The stamps are from Just Rite, Spellbinders, Marianne Dies, MS border and butterfly punch, and some dp from Holland, a little bit of everything and everybody on this card.

Hope you are having a great day, here in Ontario it's a dreary day, some rain, no sun and very humid, so perfect to stay inside and do some crafting.

Thanks for stopping by!
