3 challenges in one

For this card I followed the Midnight Madness sketch #16, used the colors for the Delicious Diva challenge: Barely Banana, Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Pumpkin pie, and I used an animal stamp for the Stamp Something challenge:

Elzybells Challenge

I made this card for the Elzybells challenge #26: Make your own self stamped patterned paper. So I stamp a few bunches of flowers on the background. On the inside of the card I stamped a border of very cute ladybugs.

It's hard to see, but I let some of the ladybugs pop of the paper.

It's nearly Christmas!

This card I made with the sketch for the Create4Fun challenge #4 and with the theme for the Dutch Dare challenge #58: Christmas in august:

It's hard to read, but the sentiment says: Happy Holidays. In real it's better to read.

Get well soon!

I made these two small cards for two collegues who are now recovering from surgery. On the inside I've put a sachet of drinking bouillon two give them a bit of strength.


I love to combine challenges. This time I combined the Ready-steady-stamp challenge #3, wich was to use 5 ingrediƫnts: a monument, blue, a metal embellishment, the cuttle wax technique and some cork.

I used the sketch for the Midnight Madness Challenge #15 and the theme for a Spoon Full of Sugar challenge #65: Travel:

A few new challenges

The Penny Black challenge this week has the theme Summer. And I think this cute frog is celebrating summer with a nice fly!

Papertake Weekly has a theme with the colors of a season and these colors really give me a nice summer feeling.
I followed the sketch of the first Delicious Diva sketch.

My entry for the second Ready Steady Stamp challenge:

The sentiments are hard to read but they are:

* ...all you have to do is dream

* Life is good...

* It's the Art of living to make every day Special

I hung it above my desk, so everytime I look at it, I feel a bit more sunny ;-)
