*V* is for Variegated

Almost coming to the end of our fun ABC-Crop.

Today we were challenged with letter *V* for Variegated = Stripes.

I took  that picture yesterday when I prepared my berry-lunch. I hadn't seen that curious shape in a long time if ever ;)

 .... a little close up .....

*U* is for USA ...

You know, DH really takes part in my crafting. He always asks what I have done, if there's anything new, could he help etc.

So last night I showed him my ATC for the *U*-challenge, which I really wasn't really satisfied with .....

He looks at it and here we go: "Oh nice honey! Great job ... hmmm, what is it? Bras on a clothesline?" I just dumped it without any further inquiry and redid the *U*-challenge, here it is:

 ... would I create an ATC with bras on a clothesline, I wonder ....

*T* is for twine ...

A "Classic" I just bought on Saturday. I have an affinity for glasses, not just sun glasses. I already own ($Z&HRTZ§$(%T, but please don't tell hubby ..... lol

Have a good start into the new week!

*Q* is for quotes ...

I inked my tag and embossed it with a TH folder. I also inked and embossed the branch and the bird, which I cut from Grunge board. 

I died the seam binding with Distress Stain Antique Linen. 

The quote is a stamp from Dylusions "The right words".

*P* is for punches

I was struggling to get those as I'm usually not willing to pay almost 90,00€ for jeans that aren't even long enough to reach my shoes, but then ..... well, you girls know how it is .....


I closed my eyes last Saturday, took out my credit card and never even thought about money ....

*O* is for ORANGE ...

... and so is the background of my tag. I used the spritz&flick technique again, this is so easy and the effect is marvelous.

June Special Card challenge ....

For this month we kind of had to challenge ourselves at My Sketch World. We picked a sketch, any sketch from the past, and created either card, tag, ATC or layout if you're in the layout section.

I picked this sketch, 
turned it just a tad and came up with this card:

Please come on over and look at all the beautiful creations of my friends!

*K* is for Kite ....

I embossed the Background with Spellbinders, inked and stamped on it.  
The kite and the ribbons are hand cut from K&Company Design  paper, the sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

It's all about buttons ...

This is my tag, using the "Spritz&Flick" technique for the background and Stampers Anonymous stamps for the images!

The *Gourmet Kitten*

I just had to laugh so hard about my cat cleaning out the container ...  

It is really hard for her to fit her head in ....
When she is done she always has cheese up to her ears ;)

*F* is for FROG .....

....... since they usually come in a green colour, we have to create a layout in green, well it should be the main colour. 

I keep filling my *year*-book with layouts this way, I also have to do some from 2011, but the crop is going on for the rest of the month, so I have plenty of time and opportunities ;)

*E* is for envelope!

Yesterdays challenge at My Sketch World was to create a card with a matching envelope.

I made it for my therapist who taped my wrist yesterday,
she didn't really have to do it, she's just a very good girl!

While I'm waiting .....

..... for the daily challenge at MSW being posted, I decided to create an ATC for challenge #63 at Fun with ATC's. The theme is *Inchies*!

This is my card, using an Stampin' Up image, some linen thread and a metal charm.

*D* is for distressing ...

... so I ripped and sanded and inked and loved it ;)

*C* is for circles ...

.... and we had to use at least 4 of them!
I used Kraft-Core Cardstock for my card and sanded all edges. 
Looks better IRL, the light is so gloomy today!

*B* is for banners!

This is my entry for day 2 with the letter *B* at My Sketch World.
