Bastel-Traum Christmas .. just a couple of weeks left

🙂 I’m in Christmas mood — two days ago it snowed and it’s really cold now .. – not, that I hate snow or the cold, well, I prefer Indian Summer but still, snow is nice and the winter too .. I just despise icy roads and snow storms (if I’m not at home 😛 )

oh well, because the snow put me into such a Christmas mood I grabbed my Doodle Bug Northpole Papers and started crafting — for the very first time I used my Jane’s Doodles stamps which I love — I think the jar is so versatile and awesome  also, this card is a card-lift from Natasha over at Jane’s Doodles — I just loved it so much :)))

Also, over at Bastel-Traum we would love to see your wonderful holiday creations – please hop over and play along 🙂

Challenges:
Crimbo Crackers: Christmas Words
Handmade Harbour: Christmas is Coming
Paper Playtime: Sparkle
Party Time Tuesday: Twine or Hemp

Creative Friday – Halloween

so spookyHappy Halloween

this is this week’s theme over at Creative Friday — you’ve two weeks to link up your spooky creations 😀
I made a triangle treat box and used this cute stamp by Inkadinkado (just love this 1$ stamps) and paper by Basic Grey — I think this collection came out 4 years ago? lol still using it 😉
Challenges:

welcome back robot :)

oh how I love Authentique .. their paper is just fabulous  I can’t get enough of it .. that’s why I’m really proud of myself that I actually used some of those papers for this cute lil robot card 🙂 
my friend’s brother just got back form Africa (he worked there as a teacher for one year) – that’s why she asked me to create a nice „welcome home“ card for him — so I did 🙂 I think the colors are perfect — masculine but still fresh and cute 🙂
as you can see I used my Cameo to cut the chevron, robot and the sentiments 🙂 – I just love this machine — it’s perfect :))  

Challenges:
SOS:  for the boys
Card Crafters Circle: for the boys
Delightful Challenges: make the cut
