A birthday card and a blue tag!

Hi Everybody!

Reading some of your blogs most of you had a lovely weekend enjoying the hot summer weather! Well I thought I would have a family gathering this weekend but it lasted about 10 minutes - my brother was called back to Ljubljana because his mother in law had a hip operation so the whole family went to visit her! So me and my mom were left alone at her place - no BBQ then :-(. Still we did have a good chin wag but stayed indoors most of the time as the temperatures were between 35 and 40 deg C!!!! And they still are - we are having a proper tropical heatwave! And silly me I agreed to go to Trieste (Italy) this afternoon for some shopping and nosing around Italian fashion! It is only an hours drive, but I don't think it will be any cooler there - maybe there will be a wind blowing!
Anyways my mojo seemed to have returned or should I say at least the will to craft! I managed to make that card for my goddaughters birthday and also a tag for the Sunday stampers blog - it is not by far as artistic as Hels beautiful hanging but I am really a begginer at stamping....actually to be honest I can stamp a single stamp and color it but I feel very unsecure when doing backgrounds and using more stamps at a time - I know you have to try things and get into practice but.....Anyway let me show you my card first ( ha, ha that is more my area of expertese)


Julia do you see my lovely new easel???? 


The stamp is a Cuddly Buddly Miss Daisy, papers are DCWV Garden Party and Basic Grey - Green at heart collection! Ribbon is Stampin' Up.....
And here is something for the BLUE challenge at Sunday Stampers - as said nothing artistic - these are baby steps - first I covered the tag in TH Tumbled glass and stamped little blue fish all over the tag....then I punched a few small fish and stars - doodled on them with Copics glitter pens stuck them on with glue pads and there it was my Blue Under the Sea tag....




That will be it for today - tomorrow WOYWW - Yippeee!! 
Have a lovely day, enjoy crafting or what ever else you are doing and see you tomorrow at the Queen of Snoop Julia!
Hugs to all of you,
Cardarian

  1. Sorry to hear your weekend didn't turn out as planned. This is a beautiful card - I love that image. I think your tag is fab too - all the little fishes in opposite directions and the colours are so lovely.
