Just To Say ...

A lazy day today.. and very well deserved I must say too. Hubby is abroad for the week since Friday and so yesterday I saw me seeing four guests out from our holiday home, taking them to the airport, cleaning up the place, and seeing another two guests in all by myself  ... so was a really really busy day! To top it all, I locked myself out of the place and had to wait till my son got me the other key, so instead of waiting I rushed back home and we met half way, so I was in a real hassle! I was so shocked when I locked myself out that each time I had to go out for something, I double and triple checked that I had the key .. but luckily I still managed in time phew :)

Anyway, I thought that it would be nice to give my guests a card to wish them a safe flight back home and to thank them for having chosen my residence for their holiday in Malta, and so here is the one I did to give the guests from Italy last week. .. Being me, I did a completely different one to give out to the Russians yesterday, but I will share that in another post.

A very quick card, using just dies and one small bird stamp and a sentiment stamp. I decided to do it in monochrome and think it came out quite nice. They loved it in fact :)

Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying your days lately and haven't been as busy as me :P I'm busy enjoying Summer whilst welcoming and seeing guests going. It is fun but of course tiring a bit too, but I love it. Everything is going fine so far, we had some fabulous reviews from guests and we also finished off the last of the rooms where we have the single beds and I furnished it with the colors blue and yellow with lots of butterflies and flowers :) It came out so nice, was really pleased. Today we saw two Italians leaving and four Russians checking in for a week. After these, we will have two English people coming for nine days and then the next ones will be also from England but in October, so for September we just have only three days not booked :) So pleased. Link to the residence on the sidebar by the way, if anyone is interested :)

Anyway, on to some card-making now and today I have a card with the theme
for the new challenge that started today at

For my card today I'm using this gorgeous image from one of our sponsors Angie's Digital Stamps, Horse With Foal, and I colored it with my promarkers in shades of greys. The background DP is an oldie, from Papermania, The Capsule Collection, and then I just added two card candy, two die cuts, the clouds and the gate and the sentiment to finish it off. I think it came out quite nice.

We have three sponsors this week, and these are

Anything Goes

Well finally I'm back and it's so nice too to be making cards again. I think it's been my longest break from blogging this time. Don't know if you've seen my previous post, but we were renovating our summer residence as we started renting it out. Finally it's all ready and we have even welcomed some guests too. Yesterday we saw five very nice people from Germany leaving, and tomorrow we get two more from Germany. I'm finding this really fun meeting new people from all over. We had from Italy, Peru, Ecuador and Germany so far. 

Anyway, back to my card making and I really enjoyed myself making this card, especially more as I love Kenny K stamps so much.

This is my DT card for the new challenge that started today at  
and the theme for this fortnight is ANYTHING GOES. Just perfect for me as have been so long away that I thought I would find it difficult to get back, but I found it was so fun.

For my card I used the image Download Diva and I colored it with my promarkers, which I colored her top to match with the lovely background paper.

We have three wonderful sponsors this fortnight

Lacy Sunshine and the winner gets 3 digi stamps

Toadstool Printables also offering 3 digi stamps to the winner

Kenny K Stamps, also offering 3 digi stamps

So if you would like to be in the chance of winning one of these fabulous prizes, just make up a card and enter it in the Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Hope to see you there.

Coming back soon

Hello, morning all.

I've been MIA ... yes nearly two months!!!! because we have been very very busy refurbishing our summer residence as we decided to start renting it out for short lets on AirBnb. When we decided this we didn't realise what we were getting ourselves into, all the work it would involve, but now finally it's done. It was Malta Tourism Approved as well, we hosted our first six guests last week and we are even booked till the 28th of August! At least our hard work has paid off !! Woo hoo :) So exciting :)

So I can get back to crafting now, and really looking forward to as well.

Will be back real soon.

Big hugs

Brand new modern holiday home

San Pawl il-Baħar, Malta

Father's Day

It will soon be Father's Day, so I thought I would share this card that I made. Usually I find male cards quite a challenge to do, but not this one as I knew that I wanted to do a horse for the main image. .. then well, everything came along easily.

I found the image on the internet, and colored it with my promarkers. The background DP is from a Wild Rose Studio paperpack, and then I cut out some die cuts and used twine to finish it off.

The prize from Digital Delights is a $5 gift voucher for our winner
