Make Your Own Background Paper

Hello everyone. Not one of my best cards this week unfortunately. I can't see my mojo anywhere near at the moment, well in Summer I hardly see it at all... I'm always so busy enjoying Summer but this time I'm also so busy at the office staying so late and with the Auditors coming as from next Monday I don't think I'll be leaving any earlier at all from now :( .. 

Anyway, onto my card now which I made for the new challenge that started yesterday at I ♥ Promarkers and this week we are challenging you to make your own Background Paper.

Not an easy one for me, being like I am at the moment, but then I remembered a really large rubber stamp that I have, Cover-a-Card from Impression Obsession. I inked it using three different colored inks and stamped it on my card. I really loved how it turned out and so pleased too that I got to use this stamp.

The stamp that I am using for my card is from one of our sponsors for this week Squigglefly
and our second sponsor is Marianne Design

I hope you can come and join us this week. Check out the challenge blog to see what the other girls did and the prizes that you can win.

Photo Inspiration

Hello everyone, hope everyone is fine and well. Just returned from work, luckily a little bit earlier today, but I'll soon have to be out again for the Insanity and Bokwa fitness classes!! So busy.. where are those days when I used to spend day after day making cards and blog away happily?

Anyway, it's Wednesday today so it's time for another challenge at
I ♥ Promarkers

The theme for this week is a PHOTO INSPIRATION and this is what I did.

For my card this week I used this really cute SWALK rubber stamp from Crafter's Companion which I was so so lucky to have received as a gift from Karen. She must have known that I find these stamp so VERY cute :) Thanks again Karen, love love love it :) xx

I have of course colored the image with my promarkers and here below is the Photo Inspiration for the theme for this week.

Anything Goes

It was back to work for me this week, after one week off, and I can tell you I didn't like it at all as I'm having to stay long hours up till after 6.00pm to make up :(

So of course I ended up posting my DT card a day late this week!!! 

.. but better late than never

So here is my card for this week's new challenge at
The theme for this week is ANYTHING GOES, which was just perfect for me!!
For my card this week I decided to use this gorgeous new stamp from Wild Rose Studio that I just purchased and I thought it was perfect for a Get Well Soon card that I needed.
I really loved how it turned out.

We are this week sponsored by Kenny K and the winner gets 3 digital images.

Fancy Folds

For me it is always so difficult to craft in Summer and with hubby on vacation leave, I didn't even manage to make a card last week!!! .. But not this time, as I'm on vacation leave too, so it was easier to find some time to spend in my craft room to make my DT Card for this week.

The theme for this week at

I don't do much these type of fancy fold cards and then I always tend to do the easel, but this time I decided to try something different and so I did the Gatefold card instead. I had done this type of card only once before so it felt really good doing it again, and it was quite easy too.

The image that I used is from Bugaboo stamps, colored it with my promarkers, and the papers, which I've had for a very very long time, are from Trimcraft. I just added card candy, the sentiment and twine to my card and that's it! I thought it was too full already with the lovely papers. I did try to add something more, but just couldn't!

We are this week sponsored by Dr Digi with a prize of two digis from the store.

I still can't believe I'm still not well as it's the third week now! Yesterday I went to the physiotherapist but he said that I just need time to heal.. so I'm waiting! Anyway, I really don't want to bore you with this, so on a happy note I announce that it's our 20th Wedding Anniversary today:) We decided to take the day off today to go to Gozo but it's a really windy day so we will see what to do instead!!

Now onto my DT card for this week and this time I have a wedding card for the
MONOCHROME challenge that started today at I ♥ Promarkers.

For my card I used an image and background DP from Graphicstock which I got for free as they had a seven day trial period where you could download up to 20 images per day for free.

 I printed the image four times, colored it with promarkers and layered it for a 3D effect.

New Home

It's another nice Summer day here in Malta and we will soon be off to the pool to relax and hopefully heal from this pain I have on the left side of my chest. Still can't move or swim properly without feeling any pain. .. Feeling really unhappy and hoping it would heal soon :( Fingers crossed :)

 Anyway, I thought I would share this New Home Card I made for a friend of mine ...

As you can see it's a different card from my usual style, with only dies and a butterfly punch, and no images or coloring with my promarkers! It's good to try something different I think! The background DP is from a Papermania Paperpack, the dies are all Memory Box, with the exception of the grass, which is a Die-Namics one.

Hope you like it.
