Having so much fun going for a swim everyday, waking up late, going for evening walks on the promenade and eating out  :) .... as I said last time... this doesn't happen so often so really enjoying it!!! .. ... still no internet though. We were going to get it, but our boys get carried away so much with it and so we decided that it's better if we don't get it... Of course....... I'm suffering with them!!! In fact, this time to upload this card I hopped over to the Mc Donalds! ... Took the opportunity when hubby was watching football yesterday and off I went and scheduled my Crafty Sentiments DT card for today.

The theme for this week is FLOWERS .. a nice and easy one.. just add some flowers somewhere on your card and you're in for your chance to win.

For my card this time I decided to use this sweet image and coloured it with my promarkers. Papers are from Papermania, and gorgeous hearts border die is also from Crafty Sentiments. 

The prize for the winner this week is three digis from the store.

Well that is all for me for today, I'll be back tomorrow with another DT Card.

Weddings / Anniversary

Hello good morning everyone. Sorry haven't been around at all lately, but as I said last time, me and hubby are on vacation leave... which doesn't happen so often that we get to take time off from work together and so we have took this opportunity and moved to our summer residence for a while to enjoy some relaxing time there. Got no internet there unfortunately and so I get to squeeze in a little time to use the internet when there is free wi-fi outside.... just enough for me to upload my DT Card.... and today being Saturday it's time for a new challenge at the Sweet Stampin.

The theme for this week is Weddings/ Anniversary and again for this week I decided to use one of my lovely Lili of the Valley gorgeous stamps.

 Coloured image with my promarkers, papers were a magazine freebie, computer generated sentiment, and just two flowers, die cut leaves and a bow and ribbon to finish it off.

A Blog Hop with Crafty Sentiments

Hello there... sorry I'm so late today and not in such a good mood too as had news that my cousin who was just three years older than me was killed when he was run over by a car today.. .. such a shock for everyone ..

.. anyway couldn't sleep and then I remembered that I hadn't posted my card for the Crafty Sentiments Blog Hop as today we have our monthly release.

For my card, as you can see I used this gorgeous image Beach Ball which I had so much fun colouring with my promarkers. Quite a simple card, the paper was a freebie in a magazine and then I just finished off my card with some of my new twine, a charm, card candy, sentiment, a flourish die cut and two pretty flowers which lucky me I had received in a swap from the lovely Karen.

Just not my usual style, so I must tell you that I had a really hard time to choose the image and to choose everything to do my card but then I'm pleased with how it turned out... found the image already stamped for me, coloured it with my promarkers, paper is a wrapping paper, gorgeous pins from our Karen ..... 

who happens to be also our sponsor for this week as she is giving the winner a lovely selection of beautiful pins similar to these.. 

I think this is good enough excuse to have a play with us this week as they are really beautiful :)
