Love is in the air

This is a funny wedding card for my sister-in-law who lives in Queensland, Australia. She recently got married, a wedding the whole family attended...on-line! Yes, thanks to Skypes the whole family managed to participate. I have been to many weddings in my life and I think this was by far the best I have ever attended - from the comfort of our house, in our pyjamas, cos it was 1am for us and morning for them - no need for a new outifit, sore feet or makeup :-)

It is a fairly large card (17x15cm); pale green base cardstock; the 2 gorgeous patterned papers I used in blue/green/turquoise tones are from the Capsule Collection by Papermania; digital image by Bugaboo (which I won in one of their challenges), coloured with Letraset Promarkers; X-cut border punch; navy blue cardstock, turquoise ribbon and card candy from my own stash. Because of the large size, I also made the envelope out of the same green card.

My card enters the following challenges:
Craft your Passion - 2 patterned papers
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Love is in the air
Pile it on - Love is in the air
Aud Sentiments - Love
Crafts your days away - Love
Digi Doodles - Swirls
Fab'nFunky - Delight in your digi
Penny's Paper crafty - Anything goes

1 year blogging!

Yes!! Hard to believe that it's been a year!
I am not an "every-day" blogger, I must admit, but I do try to post weekly at least and participate in events in the Blogworld as much as I can :-)
During these last 12 months I have "met" lovely creative people, had nearly 10,000 visitors, 34 followers and thousands of positive and caring comments. I have also had the pleasure and honour to be part of the Ooh La La design team.
So - many thanks to my followers and blogging friends, and all those bypassers who leave messages.

Birthday mouse

Isn't this little vintage mouse cute? I got it from TLC Creations and coloured it with Letraset Promarkers; the rounded birthday ticket is a digi from Sentiments 4 you. The backing paper is Bohemia, Barefoot "love"; orange and mustard cardstock, gems, flower and ribbon from my own stash.
(Apologies for the bad quality of the photo; it was taken early in the morning and therefore the light was far from right)
Some challenges:
CES challenges -All creatures great and small
Crazy challenge - Animals

Thanks for your comments!

Happy Day

This girly birthday card is for my friend's daughter, who is 4 this week. The cute stamp, called Happy Day, is by Wags'n Whiskers and it was the prize I won for their Friendship challenge with this card. The sentiment is by a shop I discovered recently, Blokum, which has stamps in Spanish AND Catalan, something I have been searching for a while, so... happy days indeed! ;-)
I coloured the image with Letraset Promarkers; all papers and cardstock are leftovers from my stash, like the button and ribbon.

Some challenges:
My Time to craft - Up in the air
Charisma Cardz - Birthday
Colour Create - Pink, red and white
One Stop Craft - Card for a child
Southern Girls - Anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - Anything goes

Ooh La La Challenge #71 - Bling it on!

The challenge for this fortnight over on Ooh La La is: Bling it on!

For my card I used the Mirror Mirror Pyramage set from the Ooh La la Passion from Fashion CD as a main image, as well as one of the papers from the same folder as backing, this was distressed; the matting cardstocks are a glitter sheet and a cream pearlescent card; cream organza ribbon and pearl from my own stash.
Can you believe that this was my first pyramage card ever!? I was not sure how it would turn out, but the ready-made set in the CD makes it so easy! Plus the image of the glamourous lady with the mirror is really fabulous, I love it, so that helped too :-)

Please go and visit the other creations by the OLL Design Team; you will find some beautiful glittery stuff!

I would like my card to enter the following challenges:
By the cute and girly - Bling it on
Cupcake crafts - Something new (it has to be the pyramage technique for me)
Paper Crafting Journey - Let's get digital
Delicious Doodles - New (technique)
My partner in crafting time - Something new (technique)
Paperplay - Clean and simple
Papertake weekly - Anything goes
