yesterdays challenge over at was to use a stamp print somewhere on your card. i can now share the card i made for this challenge!

i love the way this one turned out.
i used the sketch from (mojo monday). the paper is basic grey (nathan obb-467) scrap black card and green card (as usual!), flower trio stamp (rhonna farrer) sentiment - happy harmony (stampin up) and black grosgrain ribbon (also stampin up) thats it, you cant see it here, but the flower block is raised up a little with mounting squares.
head on over to dutch dare if you want to see what the other members of the DT did for this challenge!
have a great day!

gift card cards...

i made 20 of these cards for some parents in my sons prep class who helped at our school fair. each card holds a gift card to the local mini golf. i think they turned out prety cute! i used my new bird stamps again (the facination should wear off soon!) and the thank you stamp is a stampin up one.

have a great day

for Bep!

this is a card i did for another swap over at first swap blog. this was jetting its way over to Bep in Holland (Hi Bep!!!) and now that she has received it, i can share..yay!!!

Bep sent me this sketch to use for her card -
and heres what i came up with! -

what do you think? this sketch was a bit tricky, only cause of all the detail i had to try and cram on a card front! i left off a few details from the sketch, but i dont think it matters much...sketches are open for interpretation arent they?! i think it looks great anyways!
and heres whats on the inside -

yep, its that stamp set again!

now onto todays challenge -

i challenge you to use stickers or a stamp that is designed for children, on a card for an adult. (does that make sense?) for example...i used a packet of Disney princess stickers for the front of Beps card.

have fun with it!

luv tina

it is a bit hard to see, but the white edges are also covered in glitter...bling bling!

and now for some candy..just cause i can!remember these? -
well i really cant use them atm so i thought i would offer them as some pretty blog candy! but its not that easy! if you would love to give these princesses a new home, just leave a comment saying who is your favourite Princess. i will randomly pick a person lets say on sunday and once i receive that lucky persons snail mail, i will post it out! i will even throw in some extra "stuff" too just to fill up the envelope! you can enter once a day until the comp closes and if you subscribe to this blog in any way... you get an extra entry per day!! (just mention in your entry that you subscribe)

its sunday!!! woo hoo! are you excited? i hope you have some great plans for today...i dont know what i am doing yet...but its gonna be great! lol

onto todays card...

what do you think? nothing wildly exciting used on it today, all bits were lying around on my desk.
so now for todays challenge -
use only what is on your desk to create something!
if your desk is free of any "stuff" (ie - a clean and tidy area) what is wrong with you?! why havent you been creating?!!! lol just kidding ...if it is free of "stuff" use only what you can reach without too much effort!
have a great sunday!
