Suzy Snowflakes

How can you "illustrate" a song you have never heard about?????  Hopefully at "jingle Belles" they gave us the lyrics....

I have print the backround of my card from "Cute Companions Winter Tales" CD. I have stamped, coloured and add brother and sister(....Lol!!!) little Cute companions mice. For her I have used my Spectrum in pink n° 86 and 147; for him I used spectrum blue n° 74/185/183 and 178. For the snowman and the snowball, I have used some "snow" glitter, and have coloured the hat with Spectrum n°CG3 and 51, and the scarf with Spectrum n°35 and 24. I just add a sentiment from one of my box.....

Xmas in September

Mistletoe is her name and I have coloured her with my Spectrum in the following colours : 51/100/35/45/33/72/14/CG1/64/65/144 and 185.
I have been inspired by the sketch at "Challenge up your life".

I have decided to get "Aqua" Xmas and have used a piece of glitter card I had left in my scrap box. I have cut it with my Spellbinders "Parisian accents", I just put the wonderful "Mistletoe" on it and finished the card with some bits and bobs I have in  all my different boxes....Big smile here

Hi Folks !

After a bad time with trouble at home, I manage with the help of my daughter to rip my bedroom of. Just the floor to finish and then everything has to be re-done.....but I feel bit better. To chill out I made a few cards.
The first one I made is :
I have used one of my digi, that I cut with my Spellbinders and used a coloured card I normally never use. I have punched two of the corners, before I took a piece of "browish" coloured paper.I add two ribbons, a green one to remember the card colour and a brow one to remember the paper. I finished the card with a sentiment and some bows on the ribbons.

I will enter it in the followings challenges :
Creative Inspirations : let's celebrate
The Ribbon Girls : Colour challenge # 11 : Brown and Green
The Paper shelter : Anything goes

And please, don't feel shy...And leave me a comment.

Just sentiment

For the first time ever, I have ONLY used a few papers and a sentiment to make a card.

I don't feel too good (moraly talking) so I just find this sentiment perfect. It gives me a bit to thought about....And even put a smile on my face when I did the card. as you can imagine, and you would be right....I have used TLC sentiment, that I print on glossy photo paper.

As autumn seems to have begin here, I have used some scrap paper with leaves on and matched it with some plain green paper. But, it was a bit too "plain" for my taste, so I had buttons, in different shapes but in the same tones.

This card is going in the foolowing challenges :
2 sisters challenge : Let's get Sentimental
Bearly-Mine Challenges : Button it Up
Digi Doodle Shop's Best : Autumn colours

Have a nice day, whatever you're doing.

Quick and Easy

Since when can we, and I hope am not the only one on this one...., can do "Quick and Easy"????? That was a bit of a challenge for me....Big smiles!

I have used a digi from Beccy's, that I have coloured with the following Spectrum, 81/82/146/48 and 163. I have then glued it on a fancy oval, and add it to my card, which has been "half" covered with some TLC Vintage paper....And that's it....Lol!!!

I enter it in :
Gingerloft challenge : vintage or distressed
Alphabet Challenge : Q for Quick and Easy

Thanks for stopping here.


Good afternoon to all,

after a busy morning dealing with friends' taxes, my mum's bank account and Dave's "new" furniture, I sit down for a minute with a nice cup of tea to "blog" a bit.

I can't remember when and where, but a few weeks ago, I have discovered a very nice blog with Faeries. I finally manage to buy one of their digi. Therefore I, also, decided to use the digi and enter my card in their challenge.

That beauty's name is Isabella and can be find at The Emerald Faerie Garden Shop.

To put her to life, I have used my Spectrum in the following colours : 24/163/91/96/43/38/104 and 100. For the wings, I used my "shimmer" chalks and used the "bright" ones for the grass. I have finished the card with some white pearls, and a sentiment from Paulette. I have put the card on a scrap paper, just to have a little coloured border under, as the card is white.

I will enter my card in the following challenges:
The Emerald Faerie Garden : Pearls (and it's my first challenge with them....But not the last....)
Delightful challenges : Girly girl

Hope you like my card, and don't be shy....Leave a comment. Am always pleased to read them (and need encouragement, right now...)

Evening to you,

Not really in a "top" mood, as I have a few problem in the house, which means work to be done to put it all right, and money to be spent....And I really could have done without. Anyway, am not here to complain, but to tell you that I have tried to make a few cards to change my mind.

To make this card I have used some papers that I have since a few years and are in my Xmas scrap box...Smiles!!
I put them on a sparkling grey rectangle  card, that I have punched. I have decided to go simple and have only put a sentiment with an "ornement" from Paulette at TLC. I have coloured the ornement with my Spectrum, and add a bit of silver sparkle on it. Am not sure you can really see it.

I enter my card in the following challenges :
DYSU : Silver
Totally Gorjuss : Nothing square about me
Card Makin Mamas : Punchy
Jingle Belles : One digital stamp or element.
the Crazy Challenge : no red or green

It's my first time to "Jingle belles" challenge, but imagine it wont be the last one....

Black and blue

My 2 favourite coulours.....How could I resist to make a card with those two colours.....No chance !!!!!

It took me about 2 minutes to find an idea.....And about 5 minutes to make it....Big smiles!
I have used a plain white card, on which I have put a backing paper from "Enchanted Dreams" from Joanna Sheen. I cut, with my "fancy" scissors, a piece of black paper from my Scrap box.
I then add  a small image from the same CD and a silver sentiment.

And....Nothing else....Why should I ???? I really like it and not sure I will ever send it....But who knows?

I will enter this card to the following challenge:
CD sunday challenge : Black and Blue

Shabby Chic

As I told you earlier, have been a busy bee today....

My friend Karen "introduce" me to a fabulous blog. Heather is a very talented lady who gives you free Digital scrapping product. Of course, it's nice and better to donate her something for her gorgeous work....But that's up to you.

I have used one of her Shabby Chic papers as a backing paper. I found that that cute mice sleeping would go perfectly well with it. I have coloured it with my Promarkers and cut it with my "Label Four" from Spellbinders and put it on a Core'dination pink paper.

For the sentiment I have used one of  Paulette's. I have just add a bit of sparkle with a silver border.
I enter my card in the followings :
Creative Inspiration : Anything goes
 I Dit it Creations : Anything goes

Black and Purple

Black!!!!Magic word for me, it's my favourite colour and I really can't resist using it.

I have used a digi stamp I had for a while. I have coloured those gorgeous tulip with my Spectrum in the following colours, 146/84/163 and 175. I cut it with my Spellbinders "Large Octogons", add a black paper and a sentiment from Netty that I have printed on a purple paper. I have used one of my purple card I still have in stock.

I will enter the card in :
Card Makin Mamas : digital
Stamp Insanity : Black and Purple

Have a nice evening.

M for "Mulot"

Evening all,

Been a busy day today but.....Still manage to make a few cards. I have written down  ALL the challenges, I would like to make a card for....Ha!Ha!Ha....I will try to make as much as possible but time flies....

One of my favourite one is The CD Sunday Challenge. They always come with gorgeous idea, but this time I was a bit struggled. The Dt show us lovely cards and give me idea, but being a bit stubborn....I had to find another word beginning with a M, as I can have the same than the others....
So I have been for M for "Mulot" (or Mice if you prefer). A "mulot" is a field tiny little Mice.
 I  have used JS Cd "Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection", part 1  for the backing paper and for the image. I have used a plain green paper to match and finished by adding a sentiment.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Cd Sunday Challenge : Alphabets - M
Craft and Me Challenge : Add a Heart

Stamp something....Last challenge.

Hi everybody,

It's the last challenge in Stamp something, so I had to make a card for it...Lol!!!

As "Everything goes" for their last challenge, I have decided to make a Birthday card. In one way, it's a birthday for them....The first one of a new life, if i can say so.

I have used a vintage stamp and a French sentiment  from TLC. I cut them both with my Spellbinders "Label Four" Dies and glue them on the biggest one of "Label Four" Dies. I finally put the rose on a cut piece of black card; I cut it with my Spellbinders Dies lattice rectangle.

11th September

10 years ago an awful "accident" arrived in New York at killed a lot of people. For what? Just for God. Not the same than mine, or may be yours but God for them.

It is today time to remember this day and at TLC, Paulette gave us a wonderful Freebie to "work" with. It's also time to do a blog hop, by sending our picture and our blog address to Paulette

Enough talking, and here is my creation.

I have just glued the lovely picture on papers and add a sentiment "remember". Less is more (I think it's what you say in English)

Hope you like it. All my thoughts are going to the families of the people who died on the 11th September 2001.

What's more important than Friends?

Good evening to all,

Friendship is something very important for me and I have always tried to explain Mathilde that you don't have a lot of "real" friends. With the time, I realise that it's true and a hand is enough to count your real friends.
Anyway, it's not the point here....

To make this card I have used a "Swalk" stamp and you can find it here  at Crafters Companion. I have coloured it with my Promarkers, and glued it to a piece of green card cut with my GC. I add a sentiment from Create with TLC, that I have cut with one of my Dies from Spellbibders.

I will enter the card in those challenges :

That's it for today, but still have a few to make for different purposes....So will be back soon.


I adore this stamp from Create with TLC, it's a vintage one and I find it represents well France.

When I coloured this stamp, I only had my promarkers.....So that's what I have used. I have used a glitter backing paper to do a tiny little border before I have glued it on a spotted scrap paper. Under the papers and stamp, I have used Totally Gorjuss sketch, and put 3 ribbon to mach the stamp.

I enter my card in the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss : Sketch
the Crazy Challenge : Spots and/or Stripes
Scrappy Frogs Challenge : Vintage
Anything Goes Challenge : Vintage/Shabby chic

Se you soon for a few comments on my "work".


Hi everybody,

I absolutely adore using acetate. I had this one printed since ages, but never used it. So what a good excuse than a challenge to use it????
I have (again.....) used a Joanna Sheen picture from the royal horticultural society Cd. I have add a french sentiment and flower to finish the card.

I enter this card in the following challenges:
Bearly Mine Challenge ; Flowers, flowers, flowers
Creative Inspirations ; Acetate

And I will probably use this "template" again....Wink!


What can I say?????I don't really!!! Me.....Out of words.....Unbelievable.....Lol!!!!

To begin with I find it difficult, but after a nice cup of tea and a bit of thinking, I find it was not as difficult as it looks. I have used a Joanna Sheen picture from Jane Netley Matyhew Cd. I have used one of the smallest image, and have glued it to a backing paper I made. How? Easily....!!!! I took a piece of white paper which I have inked in a blue and green shades, then I have embossed it with some 6"x6" embossing template I bought at the NEC. It's a nice one as it has rounds that will remind the fan of the peacock. For the sentiment, I have cut one of Create with TLC sentiment.

I will enter the card in CD Sunday challenge : Be inspired by Peacock.....Bet you never guessed it....Big smile.

"Steampunk Burlesque"

Can anyone tell me how you can resist them? I can't.....Wink!!!! The new digi stamp from Kenny K downloads are just perfect....

Here is the card I made with Eva Pearl, and you can find her by clicking "on her".

I have coloured her with my Spectrum, and have used my GC to cut the stamp. i have used the same Dies to cut the backing paper. I have used a Create with TLC  paper, in the same shade colour. To finish the card, I have decided to put a few gems, and a sentiment.

I will enter the card in kenny K challenge: Vintage/Grunge.

"Chains of love"

Good evening,

What a gorgeous stamp!!!! Am so pleased I bought it. I finally decided to use it today. I have been colouring her a few days ago, but had no time to make any cards. But today, I said Dave "I have to go to mine and work"....Hopefully my "mojo" was with me....Lol!!!!

I have coloured her with my spectrum noir pens. and cut it with my GC. As I have coloured her in pink, I have decided to be a bit romantic, and glued her on pattern paper from Joanna Sheen CD's, "floral fantasy" and you can find it by clicking the link. Then I glued the lot on a pink card.

I have finished the card with some buttons. I have a few on my craft boxes, but was not happy at all. So, as am "mad" with button, I took my sewing boxes and find what I was looking for... Big smiles!!!. And I finished the card with a little pink bow.

I will enter my card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me  : Buttons and Bows
Aly Sunday Challenge : Add a Bow
I did It Creations : Girly Girls

And, just for fun and pleasure, I also made this version with "Chains of love", coloured once more with my Spectrum Noir pens.

I have embossed a piece of green card with my "Florish Impressability" then glued the stamp and put some "ribbon" I had in my craft box since ages.

Hope you like them, don't hesitate to leave me any comment.
