Love at first sight!

When I saw this unicorn that Rick St Dennis made I just had to have it cause it's absolutely adorable! You can buy this and many other fabulous images here.



I decided to follow a sketch at Papertake Weekly, create a tag cause that's the challenge at spoonfull of sugar and make it vintage for One Stop Craft Challenge.

Allsorts - free and easy last time

End of July so here comes the last of Allsorts free and easy July theme. I started with this package that I got when buying bath products. Of course it was saved for a rainy day =).


Not that it has rained recently but still... I built a new gift box =)

SFTW - paws for thoughts

At Stampin for the Weekend a new challenge starts today and goes for a fortnight. The theme is paws for thoughts so I decided to use the adorable little Henry from WoJ. Got the design papers from a friend, I kinda like the combo.

DCD - Animal antics

Morning,
this is my contribution to this fortnights challenge at Die Cut Dreams where the theme is Animal antics. If you're joining in, please remember that the animals must have four legs (so sorry, no butterflies hehe).

I found this image in my image box, coloured and all, so I figured I'd just use it and finish a card, can't have too many Christmas cards anyway =). The little circle sentiment is from Lynne, isn't it just adorable.

Allsorts - free and easy

Allsorts is still running the free and easy theme and this week I chose to make a card with a rather fancy fold, tutorial here. The DCWV Linen closet paper pack is still going strong and I love using it to get a short brake from all pink =). The Penny Black stamp is a cutie and so easy to colour.

Other challenge:

Penny Black at Allsorts - flowers

SCSC - Holidays

Kenny K hop box

Today it's a bit cloudy so I have spent a while finishing a box to enter the Kenny K anniversary blog hop. I used a spellbinder die for lid and bottom, dp from Tim Holtz and some flowers from I am Roses.

It also fits One Stop Craft Challenge, they have Summer as a theme, Shabby Tea room with Flower Power and Charizma card, they have All about flowers.

Allsorts - free and easy

Another week at Allsorts and another free and easy theme. This time I chose to make a soft card without colouring. It's actually the first time I have ever used that stamp, found it in a drawer - still in plastic. Shame on me!

Small summer candy

Today I have a card made for a couple of challenges. I have used the format 12x16 cm on the card, a really easy size to work with (and smaller card means less postal fee hehe).

Oldie but a goldie, Papertake Weekly and Sir Stampalot challenge have Anything goes, Bunny Zoe challenge has fairies and Simon says stamp and A spoon full of sugar have stitching.



And July is a month of celebration in our family as you might have seen, so I've put together a small packet with inks, paper lace, stamps and charms. If you want it, put your name in Mr Linky below and I'll draw a winner after the weekend.

DCD - recipe

Today my baby turns 20 (gosh, I feel so old)!
And today it's time for another challenge at Die Cut Dreams and this time with a recipe: 3 shapes, 2 colours, 1 ribbon. I altered a tissue box and tried to keep it rather clean and simple. I bought the tissue boxes in a pair so maybe I'll go crazy and really bling the other one up =)
