Celebrate Chinese new year

Hello everyone!  I have some fabulous news for you (nope not feeling better lol) but I'm the DT coordinator of The East wind Challenge!!!!

Did you check out the store?!?  Wow totally awesome images!  And right now there's a freebie going on The east wind challenge and  a totally fab giveaway so you really need to check it out.  And while you're at it please check out the fab FB group here. There are going to be games and all sorts of fun stuff and possibly freebies... so just a hint that you want to be a member :)

I had the fun time of creating something with the fab freebie!!!!  And here's my card inspired for the Chinese New Year celebration.

DT day over at Meljen's - Nermin the fox my candy

Woop woop it's Friday and it's my 1st DT Day over at Meljens Designs.

For this very 1st post I decided to make something a bit different!  I'm making a TAG!!!!  Yup  :)  But to simplify my lift I made it using my Cameo.  

For this tag I used the fabulous Nermin the fox my Candy.   This little guy is probably for Halloween... but I thought he would be awesome on a little St-Valentine's day tag.  He reminds me of one of my boys who keeps all his candy just for him... so I figured I would give it to him :) It's going to go with his candy!

Delicious Doodles DT post - Jan 31,2014

Hello!  It's Friday!!!  wooohooo (which is more than what I'm feeling right now... yup still dragging my feet lol).  So this time over at Delicious Doodles challenge we have a pretty easy one for you - use dies or punches.

For me the challenge would be not to use them lol

So anyway for my card I decided to use the little cutie Valentine-bear.  I could so have used a dark image... but I do need some cute valentine day cards...

A million Thanks

I'm back with one last post that I had not shared yet... I really really hate being sick... I can't seem to be on top of things anymore :(

Anyway for this post it's pretty perfect to thank you all for being there for me!  All of you that just stop in your day to leave a comment about my work and my trials and errors :)  I also get some questions by mail sometimes!  I'm always in awe that some people actually follow me this way and take the time to write to me :)  So this card is especially for all of YOU!!!!  Thanks you a million times over!!!

This card was done with one of the fabulous word art from Create with TLC.
I again made the background for this.  And this time I used an impression obsession stamp - music with bravo Burgundy ink from Stamping up.

Little oriental card - Sympathy

Hello everyone!  Not a too good day... went to work 1/2 day and then went home with the intention of logging back on... but then by the time I got home I wasn't feeling so well... and well the temperature was back :( So I decided to take a short nap and work afterwards to realize that it was 5pm...and I had slept the entire afternoon!!!!

Guess I'll try to make it up tomorrow!!!  I'm here to share with you a fast little card that had to be made last weekend as a colleague of mine lost his FIL :(  And I didn't have any French Sympathy cards already made.  So I decided to make one with an Asian flair to be able to enter it in the Mark's Finest paper oriental sketch challenge.  I've been trying to win their fab set all month lol :)

Digital delights DT post - Love you this much monkey

It's time for a new DT post over at Digital Delights and this time I'm doing a little tag for you!!!  I'm using the fabulous Love you this much Monkey and the great Love is in the air sentiment set.

I thought this would be a great tag to go with some Valentine's candy for one of my little Monkeys... yup got one in particular in mind lol  I think he will like it.

Free spirit - 2nd post

Goodevening folks!!!  I'm here after a long day at work... it was the 1st day that I worked at the office compared to home... I thought I would not make it in lol I was driving my youngest to school and had a huge coughing fit!  So much so that I felt that I was going to throw up... came back home took some syrup, a plastic bag (just in case right?!?) and back to the drive.  My daughter couldn't believe that I was actually getting back in the car... but it's my month end... and quarter end!!!  Need to be there and make sure that my numbers are ok!!! That I answer all the questions.... So tomorrow... I have a feeling I'll go and present the numbers and then be back home to do the further analysis in a pj... with the possibility of a nap...

Anyway I'm here to share with you another little card that I made with the fab CD from Jem's designs.  Right now Jem's design has a huge sale!!!  And I know that I got a lot of questions after my 1st post.  The shipping is really fast to North America (at least it was the last time I ordered I will see with my lastest order if it is) and it's really affordable.  The images are just gorgeous as are all the great elements and papers.  Unfortunately I don't see Free Spirit CD on the site anymore... but there's other fabulous ones that you will not want to miss out on.

So this is the 2nd card that I made because I just love those images.  I have more printed... but didn't  have time or energy to create with them yet.  For this I went with some colors for a challenge that I wanted to enter Creative colors challenge, I'm sharing the image of the color chart after this card.

Fashionable days of summer vintage

Ok here's the other card that I really needed to post before the sketch closes lol  I'm sooo behind in my commenting blogging and everything else... man... not used to that lol

So for this little card I'm using again a fab image and sentiment from Create with TLC.

Vintage I didn't do it

I would like to start this post by thanking everyone for your nice comment about my health!!!  I'm very much looking forward to feeling better... In the meantime your comments warm my heart!  I don't think I've felt that sick and not seen the end... in like... forever lol

I'm here tonight to share a card that was made with the great new set of Create with TLC.  Here's the great set and this time I used a sentiment as well as one of the images.

Free spirit

Hello everyone!  How was your day?!?  Me it was dragging my butt from the couch to my chair to try to do some cards to back to couch.... man I'm soooo looking forward to this virus leaving... and now that hubby is sick too you should see us both with the kids lol

Ok so I'm here to share with you a little faster card that I was able to make since it was using a topper from a CD.  No coloring involved!  And I'm sooooo happy that I'm finally using my cd's more!  This one is from Jem's Designs  she's having a big sale right now... and that meant more spending from me... noooooo... oh well it's some pretty fabulous stuff.  So I'm using the great Free spirit cd which I no longer see on her site.  I purchased that one because my daughter just ADORES horses!!  And now I discovered that they can make some pretty fun masculine cards!

Right now over at CD sunday it's about horses and what's funny is I thought I didn't have anything to play with... but no... I had a great CD just available!!!

Live Simply

Hello everyone!  I'm back with another little card that I made way back last weekend to display the beautiful word art from Create with TLC

Pin up cat

Last card for the night!  Yup I promise!!! I'll post the other ones tomorrow morning :)  So I had this fabulous image from Sassy Studios for their awesome fan progressive challenge on FB and I really really wanted to make sure to enter in time, you get the image as a freebie so I don't want to miss the next one!!  So I made my hubby's valentine's day card :)  I think he'll like it!  (hopefully by then both of us will be back in shape...)

Simple gift of a flower

Ok so I'm back!  Told you I had a few to share :)  So I saw that there was a super cute little challenge over at Sassy cheryls challenge and I haven't played in the longest of time!!!  And I had some images already colored... well actually I went online to check out the challenge since I had just purchased the new cuties that where on sale this weekend for only 1$ each!!!  And that's when I saw the challenge that I could enter with my already colored image!

I also got an e-mail from Freshly made sketcheswith a great sketch!!!  So that was the start of this card.  The challenge at Sassy Cheryls is pearls so pretty easy!

Just let me shop

Hello everyone!  So how was your day?!?  Here it was super quiet!!!  Now not only am I sick... but hubby got it too... and now he understand how I feel... but we still have 4 very healthy kids (thank god) who require attention... so not easy lol

I got to craft a bit and I have a few cards to share with you!  I was behind in my makes for the progressive challenges that I follow and I also just HAD to play with the new set that Paulette has created lol so that's what I'm here to share with you right now!

Here's the set


For this make I used the great shop sentiment!  I just had the perfect image for it because I really wanted to enter at Anonymous stamps.  All the stamps are FREE!!!! yes you read right!  And they are sooo cute!  So you better go and check it out.  And the challenge is for a change to possibly be a guest designer!  That would be really cool!!!

I used the very cute Glamour Boots!  And I have just the right person to send that card.

Little valentine day card

Hello folks!  So I've been quiet... I'm supposed to be resting... and yes beside working 2/3 of my day from home.. I rested... but this is blogging... so sitting by the fire with my blankets... that's resting right?!?  I hope so because if what the dr said that it might take 3-6 wks for me to feel top shape, I'll lose it!!!!  completely I'm telling you... you might see a raving lunatic operating this blog soon  :)

But for now I'm here to share a card that I made last weekend when I felt better.  I made something with an image from Nicecrane.  It's part of this fabulous set Romantic valentine Collection II it was perfect for my mom.

Delicious Doodles
And for my ATC I used the very cute Barn owl
For this little ATC I went with earth tones and used all little bits and pieces that I had in my scrap pile.  I also used some Heritage element stickers and some Konnichiwa Basic stickers all from Basic Grey.

Looking forward to your creations!

I'm entering this little ATC in the following challenges:

Hugs

Panda Love

So how was you day folks?!?  Me it was spent at the clinic and then at the hospital when the dr decided that he preferred someone else make the diagnostic... So 8 hours waiting and coughing... To be told that it's a virus and that it might take another 3 to 6 wks to feel better... it's been already 3!  I think I'll lose the rest of my marbles if I don't start feeling better soon!!!

Anyway... I'm here to share with you a little post before going to bed.  I have taken some pills and I'm waiting for their effect so in the meantime I figured I should share this with you before the challenges that I was entering closes.

So I made this card with 2 challenges in mind.  The Mark's finest oriental sketch challenge. And the Chalk a lot challenge (animal with chalk).  I was thinking and thinking what type of digi I could use for this and then had a ah ah moment!  Of course the awesome Panda love from Delicious doodles would be totally awesome for this!  And I kept it fairly CAS.  I really wanted the focus on the great image!

Winter scarf owl

Hello everyone!  Hope you are well!  I'm doing better and it's so fun to be able to say that!  I'm here today because well there wasn't anything going on for DT work so I figured it would be a great time to share a card that I made using a great digi from Sami's stamp called Winterscarf Owl.

I made this card to go with the little bookmark that I posted earlier this weekend.  It will be sent to my dad. It's also a great timing to be able to enter this in Sami Stamp challenge because it's Anything goes.

Time Heals

I don't know if you have seen it yet but there's an amazing new word art set from Create with TLC it's called Say it simply!!! Totally love this set!  It's so elegant.


Tonight I'm sharing the card that I made using Time heals.  I figured it would be a great sympathy card.  I have so much trouble making those... that when I have a great sentiment and the opportunity I jump on it!

I also have a goal this year which is to use more of my stamps!!! And when I saw the challenge over at Scrapbook blessings I knew I had the proper challenge to force myself to do just that.

Path of Positivity - Generosity - Midway point

Hello everyone!  It's time for the midway point for the Path of positivity Challenge - Generosity.

Our fabulous sponsors are
We always also have the following sponsors:
 ,  and 

For this midway post I'm using Edelweiss Cluster from Ike's Art it's part of the Switzerland bundle.  OK so you might be wondering why on earth I would choose this for my Generosity post... well I think that the most generous of all is Mother nature/God with all the wonderful flowers, plants, trees and animals!  And of course we as human rarely take the time to acknowledge this!!!  So this is why for this post it's about nature!

Beatrix with bear

I'm  back :)  And this time I'm here to share a little card that I made especially for my little niece that will be turning 2 this spring!  Last year for the twins b-day I used some great images that I had gotten from Mo's Digital.  And I thought I should do the same again!  To me those digis are very special!!!  They are so real life!!!  And the perfect little kid images!  That's why I guess that even if I purchased these last year... I still had not colored them... hanging my head in shame... but they are especially special for my niece and nephew...

So this year I'm using for the little Stella the great Beatrix with bear image!  I have another image all lined up for little Sidney lol but that will have to wait for a later date... I haven't made that one yet!!  Need the inspiration and that was here this time with the great challenge over at Mo's digital challenge.  The challenge was "something new".  Well I happen to have some new freebies from the awesome Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine!  I had some paper and some chipboard embellishments one that was just perfect for this!  I totally adore English magazine!!!  I'm so jealous that they get them so cheap over there... costs me an arm and a leg here.. but with the freebies  and the inspiration it's worth it.

So back to my little card:
