Godmothers should always play a special part in our lives...

Hi girls,
here we are again with another creation to celebrate our Godmother's birthday!

In this card I used this really cute image from Phindy's and coloured her with some Promarkers and Copics. I have also added some glitter to her hat and dress, as the card needs to be extra special! ;-)

The papers used then belong to my recent purchase of MME papers which I think are really sweet and soft....just like the image! :-)

As for ribbons and flowers, they all came from my stash....

Sorry for the pictures which are quite of these days I will learn to take good ones...

And with this card I would like to enter these challenges:

Hi girls!
After a brief break, here I am again with a new card! This time I have decided to continue on my Christmas cards pile, so here is my latest creation:

The papers, once again, come from one of the Christmas NitWit Collection and I am madly in love with it!! :-)

The snowflakes come from Crafty Ribbons which were actually purchased last year at a Christmas crafty fair in Dublin....:-(

As for the brad, I think it works well with this card as it carries the Christmassy sentiment.... ;-)

Wedding anniversary....

I find that cards for wedding anniversary always need to be that little extra special, whether it refers to the image, the papers, the embellies.... So, as the occasion was so special, I decided to use 'extra special' bits all around!!! Thanks to some valuable advice from Annika about a month ago, I decided to use this super cute and loving image from Mo's Digital....As you may have noticed before, I absolutely love their images and I think this one really shows you the love that eternally grows between husband and wife!

The image has been coloured using a mix of Copics (which I am falling in love more and more....) and Promarkers.

The papers used have been generated digitally. I have recently discovered NitWit Collections, which have absolutely gorgeous digital papers!!! I think that the papers come from their Christmas range, but I think they are very versatile and think that they work perfectly in this occasion.

And here we come to the little details that make us card-makers thrill in our own seats!!! The ribbon, which I accidentally found in my stash, is a PERFECT match to the papers.....!!!! (sorry, the pic is so brutal that does no justice to my poor card and its details....) One of those rare occasions that would have never occured even if I went out and looked specifically for that shade of pink/red!!!!

As for the roses, they come from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Retirement Card

Hello again girls! This is my second post today, so, if you wish, please scroll down to view my first post.

Here I have a retirement card for a lady who loves travelling!! For this reason, I decided to use this image by Isabella's Sketchbook, called Suitcase Stack. I have actually just read that Isabella won't be designing anymore for some time due to health issues....It's a real pity because she has a great talent! Hopefully we will see her again soon!

Card recipe:
  • Image: Isabella's Sketchbook
  • Paper: October Afternoon
  • Punches: Fiskar and spellbinders
  • Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Colouring: copics and promarkers....

Let's celebrate our grandads....

Hello girls!!

I know I have been absent for some time, but I have been very busy with the summer holidays, kids at home off school, day trips while the weather was still good....and time went by so fast I can hardly believe it is September already!!!! :-)

So, to celebrate my return to the world blogs, I decided to show you this cute little card I have made for a friend of mine for her dad...or rather for her 2 little girls to their grandad!!! :-)

The image is one of the many fab images I have by Mo's Digital (I absolutely adore their little designs...) which is called "Two tu-tus". I think the two little girls are just adorable!!!

The papers are some of my new MME paper I have recently bought from the US...

As for the ribbon, it comes from Crafty Ribbons and little metal heart has been in my stash from some time and this is the first time I use them...

I have then also decorated the inside of the card with this little sentiment I found somewhere on the internet:
