Guess what came yesterdaaaay ...


I've won blog candy back in May and totally forgot about it and here I've got a lovely surprise in my mailbox on Saturday! They work like magic!


Card no. 23 - Sending You Some Sunshine

Once again..... long break. Family visiting :) and going to bed at 9pm (out of pure exhaustion) did not help either.

I finally was able to squeeze a little bit of Michaela-time in my day. I missed so much out of the blog land but I jumped right in OCC Sketch Challenge and Passion for ProMarkers Lemon & Meadow Green Color Challenge.

My daughter's Godfather will have his birthday next week, so I made him not-so-girly card (right?). Lily from Pink Cat Studio it's supposed to be my little one :)

It was quick and easy card to make ... and now off to bed!

And a little news ... as I am getting closer to 1000 hits, I will go and get some BLOG CANDY and let you know the details .... very soon ;)

Card no. 21 - It's raining, it's pouring ... the old man is snoring :)

Today I had a lovely mommy playdate and we DID try to do a little bit of crafting while the kiddos played ... well, all I managed was to stamp and emboss the image ... BUT I finished it later ... after my looooong needed nap while my awesome hubby took Lana out for a hike. Yay for me!!!

I used Bev's gorgeous layout and just played with the colors... what do you think?

Card no. 20 - Summer is here! (OCC & Passion for Promarkers)

Hello there! Today I made this card for Passion for ProMarkers Challenge (cinnamon & pumpkin). First I thought what a strange combo and I couldn't find a single sheet of paper that would work, but then I found this and thought .... this might work ... what do you think?
I, once again, used the OCC Sketch Challenge layout. It took me two tries to do this, and still ... I managed to do the masking technique wrong .... ooops!
Well, next time I'll do better ☺

Oh, dear!

Still no card to show, sorry ... my head is spinning with ideas but unfortunately, my stomach is keeping me in bed. I can hardly wait for the "all-day-sickness" to end. I heard it might stop at around 12 weeks..... PLEASEEEEE, PLEEEEASE, PLEEEAAAAASEEEE.....
