No Designer Paper

Hello everyone. I hope everyone is well and fine. Sorry it's been some time since I visited but I've been so busy lately.. with work, training, working as Extra on the series Dovekeepers, and last week I've also been in Italy for the half marathon in Cremona! Well that's over now and I am pleased that I managed to do the race in 1.58, which is nine minutes less than my previous half marathon that I did in February!! It was so exciting, tiring of course, but it's such an achievement... and I'm already looking forward for my next race... can't stop running bwa ha ha ha :)

Anyway, so onto my DT card for the new challenge that started today at
I ♥ Promarkers, and the theme for this week is

Having a twins card also to do this week, I decided to do embossing for the background so as to fit for this theme .. which I thought came out quite nice, and I had never thought about this before, so I was really pleased.

The embossing folder was a magazine freebie and the die-cut is from CC Designs, while the image, which of course I colored with my promarkers, is from Lili of the Valley.

What a long day today! I took the day off to work as an Extra on the film series the Dovekeepers and then back home I had to pack up my bags as tomorrow I will be off to Italy to take part in a half marathon!!! I am so looking forward to this, even though it's a tough one!

Anyway, so better get onto my DT card for this week as I got to wake up so very early tomorrow and it's already so late.

This week the theme at

I haven't yet started my Christmas cards so this was just the perfect theme!
For my card this week I used this sweet digi image from Whimsy Stamps, which of course I colored with my promarkers. Background DP is from a magazine but I sprayed it all with glitter spray and then I finished off the card with some lovely silvery ribbon, peel offs and christmas tree embellishment.

A Wedding Dance

I didn't manage to do my DT card this week, so I thought to share instead a wedding card I made for my friend who got married this weekend on Saturday. We have met at the fitness and dance classes we go to, so I thought these Forever Friends dancing teddies stamp would be just perfect for her.

I colored the image with my promarkers, the border die cut is from Crafty Sentiments, the hearts are Marianne Designs, while the leaves are a Martha Stewart punch. I finished off the card with some peel offs.

Winter Birthday

I'm so late with my DT Card this week.. a day late! I've been so busy again with loads of work and  training as I'm preparing myself for a half marathon this month in Italy.. but that's not all... Today I also started going to beginners Latin and Ballroom classes with my hubby.. So after doing an errand straight after work off we went to our first dancing class :) I never thought I would see this day as my hubby just doesn't like dancing but there we were learning the cha cha steps together he he :) Now I just hope that we would continue.

Anyway, better get onto my card and this week the theme for the challenge at 

To tell you the truth I just didn't know what to do at first but then I found this gorgeous stamp that I had never used and thought it would be perfect for this theme. 

The pretty DP was a magazine freebie, die is MB and the border punch is MS. I recycled the beautiful suede like ribbon from an old shop bought card and I also colored the two pearls with my promarkers as I didn't have the color I wanted.

Add A Number

Feeling Distressed

What a busy day today.. after work I headed straight off for fitting as will be working as an Extra for a few days next month in a foreign biblical film that will be shot in Malta - the Dovekeepers. I was so excited when they called me yesterday, even though it wasn't the one Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are filming here at the moment. Anyway, when I was done with that it was already time for my Bokwa class so another rush home to change and off out again for the class phew :) . .. I really don't know how to relax... always wanting to do so much in so few time !!!!
So well better get onto my DT card for this week. This time the challenge at

It's such a long time since I did distressing on my card, so I was really hoping I would get it right. I chose some thick DP which I could distress and did some in the way I knew how all around the DP.

We are this week sponsored by La Pashe.
