*K* is for "K"eep it simple

Ok, 1 cardstock, 1 patterned paper, 1 font for the title, 3 embellies only and a journaling.

I got so carried away in my trying not to use too much and overload, I completely forgot the patterned paper. Well, I guess it's ok, may the stamping goes for design.

Now to my object. ..

Is she a mad cat?

Is she an uncomfortable cat?

Is this an unimaginative cat?
 (Actually I thought her eyes would just pop out!)

No, no, this cat is just a very POOR cat :)

This is how she manages anyhow:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

*R* is for Romance ...

 Fun at My Sketch World!

I colored the tag with distress inks "Spiced marmalade", "Barn Door" and "Faded Jeans". 

The hearts are TH dies, covered with book pages and also covered with Distress paint "Rock Candy" (This didn't work to my satisfaction, maybe I was too impatient, because I dried it with a heat tool). The butterflies are once again Sizzix dies, manufactured by Stampin' UP.

I also added some gloss gel from Viva around the hole.

I cut the cage with Ten Seconds foil, which I adhered to grunge paper. 
The butterflies are a Sizzix die, manufactured by Stampin' UP. The patterned paper is MM - Rouge & Mocha.

Ok, might as well start with my Christmas cards today :)

The paper is last years Graphic 45.

The banner is hand cut.

As easy as *1-2-3*

1 ribbon, 2 words and 3 butterflies was the great challenge this week at the City Crafters Challenge Blog.

I decided to create an anniversary card. 

The design paper is very old and from K&Company, the image was a gift from one of my Norwegian pals, the sentiment is computer generated. I cut the butterflies with a Sizzix die manufactured by SU.

The scalloped border is a Spellbinders die, one of my favorites at the moment!

I wish you all a very nice weekend!

The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC98

LOL, it looks like we all used the same beautiful My Mind's Eye Design Paper :)

Nothing much to say anymore :)

Check out this wonderful challenge at the Play Date Café!

*H* is for 2 hearts in non-red ;)

Create a card with at least 2 hearts on it and they can't be red!

This is a challenge I really loved.
I used my Spellbinders dies, which definitely is not often enough and adhered a bit of lace to the bottom of the heart . I stamped a panel of sticky canvas and used 7Gypsies paper for the background.

This neat little metal heart charm is manufactured by Rayher/Germany.

The sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for looking!


Good Morning my dear friend!
