Snowflake Christmas!

With all the Christmas cards I am posting, you would think that mine would be all done....not true...this was another one we did yesterday at SGD for Toonie Tuesday.....
 I used Bazzil bling paper for the big snowflake, but it's hard to see in the picture.
                                                     Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Thinking of you with the Crazies!

Happy Saturday! I have to confess......I am cheating today on my own challenge.....
It's been a crazy know, where life just I am using a card I made a while back but I am actually mailing it out.
The flower is done with the Silhouette, love that machine. The center is raised and I put some glitter on it with glossy accents. Some score line to finish it of. Check out what the other design team members have created, HERE is the link for you.
                                                          Have a great day, Anja

Welcome to November, and to a new challenge over at the Crazies, I am your host for this month.

Love the animals with the Crazy 4 Challenges team!

The Crazy 4 Challenges challenge this week  is to put an animal on your card, not hard at all for me! I love animals and we have a variety here at our farm, chickens, sheep, horses, lama's, a cow, rabbits, dog and a few cats and I am sure some mice. And we have a donkey, Miss Daisy, she is so cute and friendly, we are patiently waiting for her to deliver a baby! I needed a baby card so I decided to combine it with this challenge, the dp is from my basket, who knows who made it, and the cute rabbits are cut with the cameo.
                             Hope you can join us this week, enjoy your weekend, Anja

Back to school with the Crazies, C4C198!

  The "Crazies" are thinking about going back to school, now, isn't that crazy??? I refuse to think about it, lol, we have 3 more weeks and I am enjoying it!!!
Complete denial for me!!
Anyhow, I did make a card, only to realize, I really had no stamps for this theme........but the Cameo came to the rescue...I cut out some letters, stars, borders, and an arrow, the background stamp was a garagesale find. I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it Tim Holtz embossing powder.
The punch is from SU, and that's how this project became a card, lol! Have a great day, Anja

 And so another week begins, sticky and humid weather, so it's nice to spend some time in my craft room, now only if I had some creative juices flowing, lol!
Anyhow, usually I keep a notebook beside me while I am surfing for ideas, so when I really have no clue what to make, I go through it, pick some things here and there, no clue how long ago I saw them, find some new things and voila, a card is done! 
Hope you like it! Have a great day and stay cool, Anja
