Card for Mom and Candy Winner!!!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all fine and you're having a great week!
First I would like to announce the lucky winner of my Birthday Candy; thank you all for your kind wishes and support! Here's Mr Random doing his choice:


This would be comment nr.5 - yvon. Congratulations, Yvon sweetie! Hope you will enjoy my card and have fun with the three stamps! I have already sent a message to Yvon letting her know she has won:)


Now on to this week's challenge at Digital Pencil Too, set by our lovely Sheila, whom, unfortunately couldn't play along this time. We want to send her all our best wishes and let's make some beautiful cards with :


Now, I just happen to know everybody loves lace and hope many of you will join our merry band this time around!
Here's my take on this one:


I chose these two adorable guys to make a card for Mum, with the 8th of March- Mother's Day- drawing near, I thought this could be a nice gift. I went a bit strange in color choice, lol, but well, it always turns different than expected:).  I wrote the "Mom" word in Photoshop as childish as I could and also added some stamped corners to add a bit of interest. Hope you like it:)

Here are the supplies I used:
Images: Mo Manning: With Love and With Love Boy
Medium: promarkers/copics
DP: about 3 or 4 marks...lol
Embellishments: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, button and lace from stash, pearls from Bunny Zoe

Challenges:
Little Darlings Challenges - Favorite Embellishments; Stamp-N-Doodle - Let's See Lace & Flowers; The Stamping Boutique Stitching; Hooked on Crafts - Hearts; House of Gilli - Pearls, Swirls, Lace; Stamps R Us -Anything Goes; 2 Sisters -Stitching ; Totally Gorjuss - Lace; 

It's all so simple, no dies, no sentiment, just a few stitched panels and WOC flowers which I simply cannot leave out:)
That's it from me for now, thanks for coming by, it's great to hear from you!
Big hugs and take care,

Just Magnolia Tag and some Candy for my followers:)

Hi everyone! It's "tag-time" at Just Magnolia and Hanglar and Stanglar this week; our hostess with the mostess, Mandy wants us to go simpler and make a tag rather than a card. For me, it was not so easy to make as I wanted to drop the embellies and make it useful as a bookmark. I also thought of a pocket for it with acetate cover.

Hope you like it:)



Supplies:
Medium: promarkers/copics
Embellies: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, lace from stash; ribbon- The Ribbon Girl; 
Dies: nesties grand ovals, Cheery Lynn French Pastry doily; Magnolia Doohikeys- tag and butterfly
Misc: acetate

Challenges for my tag:
Simon Says Stamp - tag, Whimsy Inspiration -  anything but square card, Die Cuttin' Divas - Colours, pick at least 2, Red, Black Pink & White (pink and white), The Stamping Boutique Stitching, Cheery Lynn Designs - SIR - Pretty in Pink,  One Stitch At A Time -  - Anything Goes; Craft Us Crazy -  Favourite colour or embellishment (flowers); 




And now on to the candy matter:) I had a lot on my mind lately so I totally forgot my birthday would be here so quickly...lol. So yes, it's my birthday today, I'm 32, pfuii, and wanted to offer some of my stamps to one of my sweet followers who leaves a message on this post. You don't have to put the candy on your blog.
I'm so sorry I wasn't able to reach to your blogs recently; my kid went down with the flu and then pneumonia and otitis. We were a bit worried as he never took antibiotics so far. Now he's ok but I still have the flu:)
This is what I put together for you:



I will draw a winner next Thursday and announce it on my Digital Pencil Too post that day.
Than you all for being here now and so often ! Hope you will join in this week's challenge at Just Magnolia too. A tag could be a very beautiful gift:)
Till next time, sending big hugs your way...

Digital Pencil Too- Love card


Hi there! Time for me to show you a Mo Manning card featuring this lovely couple I meant to color for a while now called Date; I didn't have a particular recipient or a special occasion in mind; I guess I will just keep it:)
This week's challenge at Digital Pencil Too set by our sweet friend Debbie is:


Now, if that sounds confusing, I shall add the explanation Debbie provided to us too, quote: "Any Sentiment your little hearts desire. Easy peasie!!!" 
My card  is about 7x7 inches, in fact all my cards are quite big and may appear a bit over-embellished, lol, well, it is, but I had in mind something different I would love to try sometimes soon- a scrapbook page; this one is something in between:)




Supplies I used:
Stamp: Mo Manning- Date
Medium: copics/promarkers
DP: My Mind's Eye-Stella and Rose- Gertie and some  Cosmo Cricket bits,
Embellishments: flowers and metal corners from Wild Orchid Crafts,  charms, pins and pearls from Bunny Zoe, Tim Holtz film strip, lace from stash, ribbon from the Ribbon Girl;
Dies: Cheery Lynn- Heart to heart, Nestabilities Fleur de Lis Squares, 
Magnolia Doohikeys- Swirl, Martha Stewart- Monarch Butterfly punch
Sentiment: from Lexi's Fairy Dust Crafts, 'Miracle of Love - Sentiment'

I would love to enter this at:
Wild Orchid Challenge - "Love is.."

I would like to send big hugs particularly to those people who come here on a permanent basis; your continual support is very much appreciated! Thank you my new followers and visitors, hope you will find something to inspire you in my work:)
Till next time, take care and keep warm! 
Hugs,

Digital Pencil Too- Bingo Time

Hi everyone! First, I would like to thank all of you who follow my blog; I know how precious time is and I'm grateful you can spare a minute to take a look at my creations! If you can find some inspiration while here, then your time is not wasted, if not, I'm guessing my little one is to blame because he wouldn't let me be creative lately...lol. I have to resume to simple cards these days, something more elaborate would require cleaning up my craft space, something I'm not prepared for just yet...lol. But since it takes me more to find the things I need than to actually make the card, I'll have to take it as an option:)
So, this is a card I made over a few days, hence the lack of cohesion...lol. Still, the fact remains that I love this image and wanted to have it colored eventually. It so reminds me of my little one and his lil cousin, they are the cutest fellows ever and Mo must have paid us a visit because she drew them exactly as they are:)
Without further ado, it's challenge day at Mo's Digital Pencil Too and this time, our sweet fellow Sheila came up with a BINGO table! That's so clever!!! Loved this one!

Here's my card:



And here's the table:

You know the drill: just pick three... either horizontally, diagonally or vertically and use all three on your card!!! I picked Dies- Brads-Dry embossing. That was not easy task as mine is a boys' card so no lace, pearls, flowers and fancy stuff. But I bet I'll see lots of these sweet things this week:)!!!
Here's a list of the supplies I used:
Image: Mo Manning- Brothers
Medium- Promarkers, copics
DP: Prima and MME
Embellies: raffia and fabric from a local store; brads, button from Bunny Zoe, Tim Holtz film strip
Dies: nestabilities standard and grand ovals
Sentiment: computer generated 

Now, if you would like to play along with us all you need to do is head on over to the Digital Pencil Too challenge blog checkout all the details, marvel at the beautiful creations of my DT sisters and then go and make a card using Sheila's BINGO table ...Easy!!!

That's it for me. Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I've been up to...until next time....big hugs to everyone!

Spring Love Card

Hi everyone! Hope this finds you well and happy! It's been a while since I last played with a Lili of the Valley image and I've really missed these lil cuties. I have so many I have never inked up yet:( So it was a hard choice to make. Since the challenge theme at Lili's Little Fairies is "Spring colors" I went for these bright greens, blue and red; they work nice together:):

Stamp: Lili of the Valley- Bunnies- In Love
Cosmo Cricket- Togetherness
Medium: promarkers
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, metal corner; ribbon from The Ribbon Girl, lace from stash, brads and charm from Bunny Zoe
Misc; glitter, stickles



Buna tuturor! A trecut ceva vreme de cand am colorat ultima oara o imagine Lili of the Valley. Sunt toate superbe si mi-a fost greu sa aleg doar una. Chiar daca e inca iarna si foooooarte frig tot la primavara imi zboara gandul, mai ales ca tema propusa de fetele de la Lili's Little Fairies este "culori de primavara". Imaginea se numeste Bunnies- In Love, este colorata cu markere promarkers si copic, matrita este Spellbinders, hartia imprimata  K & Company Sweet Nectar Speciality 6" x 6" Paper Pad de la Bunny Zoe iar florile sunt Wild Orchid Crafts.Sper ca va place:)
Va multumesc pentru vizita!

That's it from me; thanks for coming by, it's great to have so many wonderful friends, thank you:)
Till next time, take care and keep warm!
