Just to Say

Hello everyone, I'm back with another of my 'Just to Say' thank you cards which I'm doing for the tourists that stay at our rental holiday home in St Paul's Bay, Malta. At first I was thinking of doing an Autumn themed card, since they came in October, so in Autumn, but then I decided otherwise. This because they really loved one of the bedrooms and also commented on it, so I thought it would be nice memory for them if I made a card inspired by that bedroom :) .. and also because I wanted to use a new die that I had just bought :P ha ha :)

So, this is the bedroom which I have furnished with blue and yellow colored bedspreads, with butterflies all over them and fun butterflies on the wall as well ...

and this is the card that I did.. 
 I was really pleased with the result that I managed to create the same colors and inspiration ... and it so quick too. The background is a die cut which I have just purchased and the butterflies are clear stamps from Pergamano. I colored them with my promarkers and then popped them up with foam pieces. The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Crafter's Companion.

 Well they loved it and so I was extra extra pleased he he :)

Just to Say

All alone today.. hubby is at work, older son abroad, younger son out with his friends, and it's just me and the dog at home !! ... so I thought I would share another of my 'Just to Say' cards which I'm doing for the tourists who are renting my holiday home in Qawra Malta for their holiday stays.

This one I did it for a very nice couple from UK who were staying in the last week of September. At the moment I have another three tourists from UK (Callington). They are staying till the Thursday of next week, and then, no more bookings, as yet. Have also reduced the pricing for the lower season too, as would like to at least a booking once a month. .. the weather is still beautiful, warm and sunny, yesterday was 30C in fact, so still hoping. Fingers crossed :) 

Anyway on to my card, this time I decided to use one of my fave dies, the cutest owl die ever seen :) which was also a freebie in a magazine. Freebie papers as well, more die cuts and just one stamp, the sentiment one to finish it off. Very quick and simple indeed.
Was really pleased with the result.. now for my next one. Still don't know what I will be doing! Maybe will do an Autumn theme this time, since they came in October, it would be nice, will see !!

Autumn Colors

Hello everyone and a happy weekend to all. We are having beautiful warm sunny weather at the moment in Malta, just like Summer, and so I'm very happy because we got work related team activities on the beach, just the perfect weather :)

We will soon be on our way, so sharing my DT card for the new challenge that started today at 

The theme this time is AUTUMN COLORS

For this challenge I was so lucky to choose an image from one of our sponsors and I chose this gorgeous image, Rain Boot Bugs from Bugaboo. I have of course colored it with my promarkers and then added beautiful DP from magazines and die cuts and a sentiment and a large bow to finish it off. Really pleased with how it turned out.

Ice Cream

Not really ice-cream time as we are in Autumn now, but this is the card that I made to give the tourists from Russia that were renting my Summer home for their holiday in Malta. Thought ice-cream and sea would be ideal for the card to remind them about Malta, and they loved it too :)

It was a very quick card, I just stamped the main ice-cream image using a stamp from Molly Blooms, which I colored with my promarkers. The beautiful summery background DP was in a magazine freebie and the sentiment is from a Crafter's Companion rubber stamp.

Thank you for looking
