Bundled Doraline meets 3 Challenges- and Lovely News to share

Hello everybody :)

I 'm sorry for being a bit on the quiet side here this week, but I had lots of activities with the kids,and I was busy, together with my fellow BnW DT to reorganise our BnW blog. I'm also working on some things that I can't share with you for now;)

But I have some things, lovely things that I CAN share with you as well.

Let's start with some happy news I had last weekend. This month is my last month Guest Designing fo Club Anya (no not this part.. this isn't the happy part!). The two months will have passed sooo quickly (always does that whn it's a fun thing!), but next month I'll be Guest Designing for someone else- Quixotic Paperie!! Yay!!

If you haven't visited Elaine's store.. you ARE missing something! She has the most lovely stash there.. papers, charms, lace... you name it.. it's there :) She is also one of the retail stores that carries Belles 'n Whistles in the UK. I know I will have a blast, and even though four weeks will be just an appetizer; I hope I will be good enough as her other amazing DT members. Elaine does also stunning cards herself! So you will be in for a treat if you land on her blog mate!

Now, I have also a card to show you today. She is Doraline, one of Motivet's beauties! Did you see the new stamps that just came out!! My my they are too cute :)
They have a lovely candy up for grabs as well.. yes sure, the new stamps! You can just click on the picture on my sidebar if you're interested to win them. If you don't , better for me, cause I'll have more chance to win !! lol

I will enter this Christmas cutie for nothing les than three challenges. It's been a while since I succeeded to make a card for three different challenges that permit you to combine. I have it for Copic Creations, which have given a go ahead to use our favourite combinations. This is my first time in there, and I used reds, blues and yellowish beige/ white. I love these three colours together. I didn't dare join this challenge before, as it's only my fifth time I coloured in Copics; so I'm still not perfect! :)

Another challenge is A Spoon Full of Sugar, they want to see distressing, and the sketch is from Simon Says challenge.. a lovely one! I turned the sketch upside down, as you can see in the thumbnail, and tilted a bit my nesties for some different movement in the card. Lovely Birthday wishes to Heidi of Simon Says as well! I'm glad she had a lovely day, well deserved Heidi ;) xx

I used Daisy Dandelion papers for this card, it is a Christmas pack, and the sentiment is part of the pack as well. I love these papers. As you can see I cut the outer part of Doraline's ears before I made the nestie die, then I curled the them a bit outwards for dimension. You will find the list of Copics I used below the post, as I had questions about which ones I used for my previous cards.

I embellished this card with some Dewdrops, snowflake charm and mini rhinestones; and a piece of polka dot red ribbon. I love the effect. I also made the inside but I forgot to take a photo of it. I realised that after the photos were edited, you can see a tiny bit of it in this photo :)

I hope you like it, and let me know what you think of it. Your comments always make my day :) Last but not least, I want to share with you two more things, this time from ROP and BnW store. Summer will be replacing Sarah Kays and Rachelle Anne Miller stamps with cute Bildmalarna stamps. They are on pre-order now. You can check them out in thew link provided. Also be on the look out for the next Belles 'n Whistles release. Check out our BnW blog everyday from Mon- Fri for some fun things to join, and news about this coming Fall release. Whippee!!! You won't be disappointed for sure!! :)

I'm off for now. I have some more stuff to get ready. It will be Club Anya's release in no time... and boy.. these too will be up to your delight I'm sure!!! Im cruel I know!!

Copic Colours:

Blues: B91, B95, B97
Cheeks, gloves and bows: R22, R24, R29
