This is the new theme at CCC Blog this week, and for this week our talented Jilly chose this piture for our inspiration. You can choose to do anything you like, using whatever you want from the picture.. "You can interprate the inspirational picture in any way you wish as it is there just for inspiration. Maybe you just want to use the colours or maybe the design or something totally off the wall it's your choice." Well, go over and have a look, and have a go yourself. We'd love to see your creation again for this week's theme.
Okay, here is a start of a new week.. get ready for quite a long post!! Have some things to tell you :)
Well in this week's DT entry : I chose to make a card based on three main colours in this picture : pink, blue and yellow. I had a shiny, glittery paper that was sent to me in a BRAK and I decided that it fitted what I was looking for. I also decided that it was time to use again one of the Magnolia images that was sent to me .I was noticing that I had only a few left now, so wasn't using them very often - lol! But now I know that I have some travelling over the seas and oceans to me.. so I can afford to use some more!! :o)
First I cut and sponged with pink ink a large scalloped circle, and when that was over and done with, I pencil- coloured Tilda, cut around it and mounted it in the middle of the scalloped shape. I glued the main DP on white cardstock with double-sided tape and after that layered a piece of pink chequed DP in the bottom left hand corner. Then I embellished with a piece of white lace, just to give it some elegant touch. After that, I mounted the large lace flower and the small pink ones and when that was ready, I decorated the showing piece of scallop with pink gems.
Next step was that I made my first hand-made (or rather computer made) ticket!! And this thanks to the perfect tutorial presented by my lovely friend Catherine on her Blog. My friend Catherine ... God bless you, you rock!! I really loved that tutorial,and she even went to the trouble of putting translations for me when I told her I couldn't understand it!! I can tell you that it won't be my last! :) Go and check it out, you'll find it here!

Take care, and hope to hear from you. May you have a lovely week, and peace and Blessings to you all! This week I want to write a post about something very serious and worrying, that is happening, and is a threat to our kids. Please be sure to be on the lookout for this post, and do come and read it! I'm asking for the love of your own children. God bless!
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
