It's twins!!!

Hi! I hope you are having a great week!

My cousin in Spain had twins a few weeks ago, so there was no doubt that I was going to try and make a new baby x 2 card!!! my first card for excited!

For this card, I looked around for Twin digis or stamps, but there wasn't any that I really liked, so I decided (with the help of Google!) to flip and merge this digi, Spit Happens, from Mo Manning, which I've had for a long time. I'm really happy how it turned out. I also added the babies' initials to their T-shirts!

I coloured the image with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

Back today with a MALE card!!!! yeah! you heard it properly.. this is one of the rare occasions I've made a male card... and oh my! I enjoyed it so much! From the fun image, to the more manly colours... I'm going to add making more male card to my crafty resolutions....

The image  is the "TV remote control funny male" digi by Kenny K stamps.

I added a stitched frame and the sentiment with my computer.

Cute spring bunny card

I'm back today with a CAS card... I never used to make CAS cards... NEVER! but I've fallen in love with the look of them.. I guess I like both extremes.... very embellished and lots of layers cards or very clean and simple cards....

So, this is the card:

I used the sketch for this week's CAS on Sunday challenge.

The image is a clear stamp I've had for a long time. I'm pretty sure it was a freebie from a magazine a few years ago and it's from Somebunny to Love.
I used Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the image.

Card Recipe

7x5  tent card blank
Patterned paper is a very old one, freebie from magazine a few years ago
white cardstock
Somebunny to Love clear stamp (freebie from magazine)
Memento in Tuxedo black ink pad
"Dream" sentiment is a rub-on, part of a set I bought in a Japanese shop in Dubai about 4 years ago
Lawn Fawn stitched borders die
lots of foam tape under the white cardstock and the image

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thank you so much for stopping by! don't forget to leave me some love in the comments and follow if you want to see more of my makes! :)

Until next time!

Spring is almost here!!! and new blog look!

Hi! Another week has passed and another week that I've been so busy that I've just managed to make one card... I guess that one card is better than none! what I did in between tasks this week is changing the look on my blog... I decided to make it more bright and crafty looking... I hope you like it!

Time is really going so fast... Spring is almost here! well.. It's still freezing out there, but the sun seems to come out a lot more. I just can't wait for the better weather, although I'm not one to make a lot of winter cards... I tend to use bright colours and flowers all year round, it just make me happy!
Today I bring you a happy spring card... in reds, maroon and turquoise colours... I really love this colour combination!

The image is a new acquisition, a rubber stamp from Stamping Bella called "Lulu loves Poppies".
I really love Stamping Bella...  I would love to get all of their stamps! only if  I could...

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.
