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,
