A Little Something from me again..

My dear Blog Buddies!!

I've been away for months now, and oh my! how much I missed crafting, blogging and your friendship! But for these couple of months I have been veeery busy and had more important things to do. But every now and again I manage to do a little something, and so I just came for a quick posting to share it with you.. and seize the occasion to leave an Easter blesing for all of you!

Some days ago I did a card and a matching tin for some sweeties :) One of the Sisters had her Birthday, and we thought we'd do something special for her.
I didn't have much time to colour in an image, so I printed a gorgeous saying from Karen's lovaly selection, and used last weeks's Sketch from Sketch Saturday.. but didn't post it in time to enter it there.

It felt a bit awkward, and it took me quite some hours to make the card, as it had been months since I finished one :) But hey, here it is, and I hope you liked it.

The tin I used to make a fun container for some sweeties is a recycled Milupa Camomile tin, I find it a wonderful size, and easy to embellish. Only the lid is a bit soft, but I managed to do it as well (thank God for nesties!) :)

I used quite some flowers, bling and a wide ribbon (the same I used on the card). I also added a couple of dangling charms, held with a large brad.

The papers I used are Blueberry Hill, Papermania. I just love the soft tones, and the fact that it is an A4 paper pack it's lovely for such projects.

I used a Stampelglede stamp for the Cross.

I have checked the list of challenge blogs, and well, I saw I may fit these into a couple of them :)

C.R.A.F.T Challenge: Flowers
Stampavie and More: Birthdays (I have done these for a Birthday occasion)
ABC Challenge: S is for Sparkle (I used glitter glue etc)
Cupcake Challenge: Lots of Layers

A side view of the tin.

I also decorated the inside with a couple of computer generated sentiments, and a Stempelglede stamped frame. I used Weathered wood Distress ink for the frame.

I hope you are having a wonderful Spring. I am sending you tons of hugs and lovely wishes for a wonderful Easter. I hope that you are giving your soul some refreshing time as well, and may the Risen CHrist bless you and your families, in whatever part of trhe world you are in !!

A late Christmas posting!

Hi to all!! I hope each one of my friends is doing good, and that you had a wonderful Christmas day yesterday. I meant to post on Christmas eve, but I didn't succeed!!! Sigh!!

As you may have noticed, I had to take a little break from cardmaking. I have changed Home, and started a new work, which is quite demanding, is lovely and I have to give it most of my time. But I am happy the Lord is giving me this occasion of serving Him, so even though I don't find the time to create often, but I'm happy I am doing something for Him to loves me! :) But I have truly missed cardmaking,Blogging and hearing from each of you!!

Well, I have three cards to show you today, cards I have done for occasions that required a card with a message.. including a Christmas card. I had in mind to do a lot of Christmas cards, but well.. plans...!!!

I'm lucky to have managed to send the most important cards some weeks ago, and thank God that had arrived in time :)

On these cards I have used Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps. I hope you like them. I coloured each one of them with Copics, and Glitter Glue is a must on my cards it seems :)

Oh.. I just realised that the star charm that is dangling from behind the ribbon bow has stuck with the double sided tape when I put it up for the photo! lol

Challenges I will enter this card into:
Copic Creations: Sparkle (all three cards are coloured in Copics and have added sparkle)
Simon Says: Anything Goes
Creative Belli: Christmas
A Spoon full of Sugar: Christmas card

Have a wonderful Christmas Season my friends. I hope that I will be back more often now. IF I don't manage to be back before the New Year.. Let me send you Cyber Hugs my friends, and thank you for being a God-diven gift to me during this past year. I am truly Blessed with having you part of my lovely life! God bless you and your families!
