MOJO 278 Sending love

 It the last sketch of the month and that means, circle or square for the MOJO MONDAY sketch. I used a Spellbinder die as the base for my card, some dp, rolled rose, a die from Marianne, SU label punch, Joy craft border and some pearls. Sentiment from Just Rite, sorry for the dark picture, hope you like the card, Anja

Thinking of you

      You should see the mess in my craft room, my workspace is getting smaller and smaller, I am even working on top of other things, lol. No wonder I can't find anything, so I just used the same designer paper as before, and made a similar card. The blue of the flower and the ribbon look so different in the picture, in real life it a way better match. The sentiment is from Just Rite.
Thanks for stopping by, Anja

Happy Anniversary cards

 Going through my pictures, I wasn't sure if I posted these cards, I think I didn't. I love the way they turned out, that's why I made 2, with some little differences.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Anja

Clean and Simple

    Caa you tell I don't have a lot of Valentine's stamp, it is a lot of hugs and kisses, lol. Anyhow, I wanted to play in the clean and simple challenge, you can find it HERE. I know, I know, there is already a new sketch, I am a little late. I couldn't find my Tim Holtz rosette die, and since I wanted to use it, I had to find it first, lol. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

MOJO 277, you are too kind!

  A while ago, I got a set of sentiment from SU at the garage sale...I needed them, that's what I thought, well they haven't been used once but today was the day,LOL!
The designer paper is from Authentic, rolled rose from MFT, border cut with a die from MFT and some pearls, stickles, ribbon and no clue who made the stamp with the little flowers, I have had it forever.
You can find this sketch, and many more, here on the Mojo Monday blog
We got lots of snow and it seems to keep coming! Stay warm and thanks for stopping by, Anja

A card and a little box

    Today is our 24th anniversary! And I am sharing the card I made for my husband with you. Not really a guy card but it says it all! No stamping on it, as you can see, I used my cricut , embossing folder, MS borderpunch  and the snowflake strip die from Tim Holtz, designer paper is form Crate. I also cut out a little box with the cricut and put some heart shaped chocolates in it.  I haven't done much for 3 D projects but I am thinking that might change. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

Happy Birthday card

  I have tried to post this card before and for one or another reason the post did not show. The designer paper is from Indie and the sentiment from Just Rite, I am also pretty sure it is an MOJO sketch but I can't remember. Hopefully Mr.Blogger will be nice tonight and let me post, lol. Have a great evening, Anja

MOJO 276, masculine birthday!

  A new MOJO sketch this Monday, and since I need a masculine birthday card, I followed the sketch and made this card, also using some Verve stamps, older ones but a lovely set. You can check out the challenge HERE. Designer paper is from a 6x6 Authentique paper  pad (Loyal), I have so many of those and I love that when you grab one, all the papers go together, and the size is perfect for cards. For the borders I have used a MS and EK borderpunch, the rectangle is a Spellbinders die and some copper Viva pearls to finish it off. I should make another one for my box, always handy to have it ready. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

MOJO 275, happy anniversary!

  Two cards in one day, wow, that hasn't happened in a long time! Every week I look up the Mojo Monday blog and I wanna play.....and then life happens. But this week I did make a card for the challenge, right before the deadline. I used paper from a 6x6 Kaiser Craft paper paperpad, sentiment from Just Rite, MFT rolled flower die, Martha Stewart borderpunch, MS fern punch, some gold Viva pear and I was gonna use a bow but decided not too. I was also thinking about inking the edges but choose to go for the clean look. Have a great evening, Anja

Clean and simple Valentine's card

    I had some crafty time this weekend so I played a few challenges, this card is for the Clean and Simple blog, you can find it HERE. It is hard to keep it simple, I was itching to add some ribbon and such. I am always amazed how some people can make such nice cards without all the extra stuff, I might need some practice, lol!  Anyhow, dp is from My Minds Eye, tickeld pink, sentiment from Just Rite and embossing folder from Crafts Too. Hope you like it, Anja                                                     

Simple Thank you

                                                                    Since I needed a Thank you card now, I just used some leftovers from yesterday to make this quick card. It has to go in the mail so the flowers have to be flat. Thanks for looking and have a great day, Anja

Just playing.....

   Two similar cards today, I have been playing with the new cartridge. The flowers and the blue pieces are from the cricut. Not sure if the style of the sentiment on the right card is the best fit. I couldn't find what I was looking for and then came across this one. I am working to fill my box with cards so that I am ready instead of struggling to make a card last minute, great plan, I think lol! My other plan is to use what I have and believe me, I won't be short of anything anytime soon.Have a great day, Anja
