Here Come The Holidays

It's already Wednesday, and finally I'm settling down again after the short break in Vienna and have managed to get my DT Cards done just in time! I'm always so busy after a holiday.. It's really true what they say that you need a holiday after a holiday ha ha :P 

Anyway, so onto my DT Cards for today's challenge at

The theme for this week is
Holidays can be any holiday, so you can do any holiday, not just Christmas!
Me not having done much Christmas Cards yet have of course done just those.

That's right, I did not do just one card, but two and that's because the challenge runs all the way till the 28th of December and we have not one but four sponsors!

So for my first card, I got this cute elf from our sponsor Melonheadz.
The image is from a bundle of digis Christmas String Beans and they are all as cute as this one. I printed off six of them, but unfortunately only managed to use this one for now... but you will surely see me making them up in cards real soon as I just fell in love with them.

My second image, Rino and Reno,  is also just as cute, and this time it's from our sponsor Alicia Bel.
 I have of course colored both images with my promarkers. The Christmas tree on this card was recycled from a shop bought card and then I added the bow and star and the red glitter as well.

Our other two sponsors are 

So four great reasons to join in! and remember you can add up to 3 projects and the challenge runs till the 28th of December!
As for me, I'm entering my cards in these ANYTHING GOES challenge

Merry Christmas

So late with my DT Card this week... So sorry ... I've been to Vienna for a few days with hubby and so was really behind with everything at home !!! And to top it off, yesterday evening we had a boogie night party, to which I still had to do hubby's costume. ...and I couldn't find the pattern! Grrr !! When I managed to find one, it was already late morning, so I had to make up the costume in time for the evening... Anyway, finished it just in time for me to have a quick shower and off we went.

Here are some photos from yesterday he he :) I also had done my costume, but not this year.

Anyway, onto my DT Card for this week. The theme for this challenge at Crafty Friends is

 We were so lucky to be able to choose an image from our sponsor, and I chose this really cute image from Star Stampz, Christmas Elf.

As usual I colored it with my promarkers and then used lovely papers and die cuts to finish it off.

We have another sponsor this week, and it's My Besties

They are offering these lovely images as a prize.

Well I'll be off for now, but I'll be back later to add up some challenges as now we are meeting up friends for lunch. It's a beautiful sunny day here in Malta, so out we go :)

Big hugs and thanks for looking

Happy Birthday 21

It's raining here today.... on such days I most of the time turn to my crafting, or reading, especially when hubby is not here. He has a business dinner today and my older son is out with friends, and the younger one of course prefers the company of his computer!!  
Anyway I thought I would share this birthday card that I did for Naomi who turned 21.

Actually this card was much different before as I had done it some time ago, but it had stayed in my box as I hadn't anyone to give it to yet. Then I needed a card for a 21year old and hey ho..  thought this would be perfect. So I fixed it up to add the name and the number.

This is how it was before.
I really think it came out much nicer now!

So I think I will go and do some crafting now :)

Have a nice weekend

Someone Special

Hello everyone, it's Saturday, and again I spent yesterday and nearly all of today all by myself. Hubby had a team activity over the weekend and both boys are two nights away with friends... So again it was me and the dog! Now you might think that I was lonely... no way :) In fact I loved it he he but sssshhh don't tell!!! How could I be bored or lonely... After I returned from the office yesterday, I did some crafting, then in the evening being all alone I got in bed and read till late :) This morning I woke up late, again more time reading and then I had some housework to do... but it was just  perfect :P

Anyway, since it's Saturday, it's time again for me to share another DT card. Today it's for the new challenge that started today at

Not that it's cold now, still warm with just some rain now and then... In fact I was thinking that I could try to persuade hubby to head to the beach tomorrow, as the weather is lovely... will see!

Anyway, onto my card again.. and I colored the image with my promarkers... using fun and bright colors to match the beautiful background DP and pretty flowers which were a gift from my dear friend Karen. Thanks xx
