WOYWW, cards and stuff!

My dear friends!

I am not sure if I will be able to link up to WOYWW because it is actually Thursday when I am writing this! I had a busy day yesterday and it was late when I realised I won't be able to make it it till midnight but anyway here I am with a few things to show you.....
My forever messy desk.....

I know it will never ever be tidy.....
Then I have a few cards....I am just loving that there are so many possibilities these days to make something nice....here is a card I made with a big Hello die cut from Avery Elle and Marianne Design die cut! Also used a lot of Glossy accents on the Hello....the small sentiment is from Winnie and Walter...

Then I have made 2 cards - one for my daughters name day and one for her birthday - I am really proud of these cards - I think sometimes they just really come together...
This is the name day one....

I used a stencil in the background and also on the tag and I used a sparkly paste which is not my forte -getting too messy is not exactly my thing but I went out of my comfort zone and I really like the result! I am very happy to say there is a lot of Slovene crafty ladies who design their own dies and it is really lovely to be able to put a sentiment in Slovene on a card that goes to someone in my country!
Here is a close up....

This next card is my absolute favourite - I don't remember having so much fun with a card .....

Here is a close up.... this was a lot of stamping. first I stamped the background with 3 different colors and used an MFT large stamp...then I stamped the little girl - it is a Unity stamp - love how she is stretching her hands and is right at the forground of the card, I also stamped on the bunting, I die cut the sentiment  (Najlepši par)and the cityscape (Clearly besotted stamps) - lots of work but if it is for your daughter time doesn't matter....

And as last I will show you another lovely rainbow....it was a double one actually ....

So there that is all from Cardarian's happy place!

Have a lovely week!
Hugs to all of you,
