Hello my dear friends!
I am back on WOYWW after quite a while - things regarding my so called pension are going very slow so I am a bit dishearted and that also affects my writing on the blog but I am back now so get ready for loads of photos!
First up is my desk which today shows a lot of new stuff - I have ordered some stuff from Simon says Stamp - mostly dies and stamps and a few of their inks - I want to see if they are any good and also the colors are a bit different from the ones that are around so I splurged a bit! I also ordered some memory box dies which I still think are the most beautiful and intricate of them all...
There is so much stuff on offer these days online and in shops , I really think card making has caught on! It is hard to choose - you get so overwhelmed with stuff! I promised myself this will be the last buy of the year but I am sure next month I will be buying again - what an addiction!
Ok then lets get up to cards! I have made quite a few recently in all sorts of styles... I must admit I have gone off the Tim Holtz browny sort of style and am now into more lighter colors! I just need the "happy" in my life!
So here is a scenic birthday card I made for my DBFs grandson Ethan - he was very happy with it I have been told...
Next up is how I combine watercolors with making cards....just used them as a lovely colorful background and then stamped flowers with black ink on top! I will add this to the gallery of Najlepši par - the stamps and die cuts are from them....
and here is one I personally really like - I made it for a new baby girl - my boss just had a baby so I made a card all of the girls here at work signed and my daughter wrote a little poem to go with it!
I made a nice autumn card which you can see here...
My DBFs daughter has had an operation recently so I have made a get well card for her - it is also a more autumn - ish card! The background paper inspired the whole card - funny how you get ideas from a bit of paper....and yes I also decorated the envelope!
Last card on this post is one I also made for my DBFs daughter for her birthday - it is coming up very soon and as he went back yesterday I thought he should take it with him - she doesn't read my blog so it is safe to show it....As you can see the background colors are TH Distress inks - I do love them as they blend together so beautifully! I put a cover up die cut out of silver paper on top and then added all the rest of the bits and pieces on top - die cuts, flowers, pins, bling - it is all there - I think the card is really flash and pretty!
So that is it for this weeks addition! I think I will start on my Christmas cards this week - I am not really a Halloween person - I might make one card just for fun but as I have all this lovely new Christmas stuff I think it is time to give it a go! So next week will probably be the first Christmas edition! :-)
Have a lovely week and enjoy your crafting!
Lots of hugs to all of you,
