New Baby......

Afternoon all,

That message will be post for me, as am not sure what time I will be home..... We are just back from our holidays, but you'll have to wait for a while for me to tell you all about it.

So, it's Sunday....again.....!!!! and it's time for "A New baby" challenge at Robyn's Fetish. Our sponsor this week is The Crafty Pad, and the winner will be able to choose 3 single digis OR 1 digi set and 1 single digi, EXCLUDING personalized books.

Once more, I have used one of my magazine idea. It was just perfect for a New Baby card. as I have chosen a little girl, I made my card in pink paper. For the backround, I have used a paper from "Boys and Girls" CD from Crafters Companion.

I have coloured my little girl with my Spectrum Noir in the following shades: FS2/109/45/37 and 147. I have then finished my card with a sentiment, that I have glued in the middle of the "rattle" (not sure about the translation of the word.....)
That's it for now, I will come and chat with you as soon as am back.....

Getting Pastel at Robyn's Fetish


I will be on the plane to Tunisia when my post shows.....A few days holidays, and am really looking forward to it.....

Anyway, as it is Sunday, it means it's time for a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish. It's challenge 104 and this week we are doing "pastel colours". We are sponsored by Heart Song Designs, and the winner of this week challenge will be able to choose 3 digis from the store.

I have coloured my Digi with my Spectrum noir in the following shades:
Sun : 38/LY1
Clouds : 178/185
Grass : LG2/DG1
Flowers : HB1/HB2/HB3/171/144/147/137/84.

I have chosen 2 papers to go with my digi image, one from my craft box, and the other one from of my favourite CD "The Royal Horticultural" from Joanna Sheen web-site.

I have finished my card with a small flower sticker.

Have a nice week, I will think of you when am sitting in the sun around the pool, or having a nice drink on the beach.....Lol!!!!

Spring for Challenge 103 at Robyn's Fetish

Good afternoon to all,

Had a lovely end of morning and bit calmer than earlier....Lol!!!! It's sunday which means a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish, and it just looks like "Spring" here in France with all the trees which are in blossom, and the first swallows arriving.

This week we are lucky and have 2 sponsors. The first one is Bearly Mine Designs, who allows us to "play" with some gorgeous papers, and the second one is Robyn's Fetish, from where we had a digi. The winner of this week challenge will have a "Spring Blossoms" digital paper set from Bearly Mine AND 1 Spring Digi from Robyn's Fetish.

In one of my magazine, I found a new shaped card, and have decided to try it, especially that Bearly Mine has given us a few papers....He, He, He!!!!. I have cut my Digi with my Spellbinder, and have coloured it with my Spectrum Noirs in the following shade: 34/24/163/175/5/1/65/64/81/82 and 84, and I also used some Sakura pens.

Here is my triangle card open. I have used three different papers, two are the same draws but not exactly the same colours and the third one is totally different.
I have finished my card with a sentiment I have since a while now, and I particularly adore. It means, "Every moment with you is very special", and on the outside, it says "today, tomorrow, yesterday".
It was a real pleasure for me to try that new shape and to play with Bearly Mine papers and Robyn's Fetish Spring image. As I have said earlier, I won't be bothered to enter any challenge this week, will only share it with you, my nice followers and "collegues" DT.

Not Happy !!!!

Morning all from a very sunny Sunday.

I was not sure if I would do that post or not, but at the end of the day, I thik I should.

As some of you might know, am a DT for Robyn's Fetish, and I have tried, up till know to do my "job" as well as I can. One of our duty is to leave comments on the card which has been shown in the challenge. My "coup de gueule" (and I won't translate it, bet all will understand...) is that we take time to create cards or project, we are pleased and proud to share it with others in different challenges and some DT  DO NOT EVEN CARE AND LEAVE US A COMMENT.

I had to say it. Susan our DT's Chef.....Lol!!!! (hope you like that title Susan....) regularly remind us that it is part of our duty, and she is right, it's so nice to read the comments and see that people have taken a minute to read our post and looked at our card.

Sorry if I have bothered some of you, but I think someone has to say it. I even wonder if I am going to be bothered entering any challenge any more.

Going for a coffee now to calm myself down. I might find a few comments when I come back.....Mdr!!!! Lol!!!!

Anything Goes at Robyn's Fetish

Good Afternoon and Happy Easter to all of you,

It's a lovely sunny Easter sunday, which also means it's time for a new challenge at Robyn's Fetish, and we are sponsored by Robyn's herself. She is a very talented person, and you'll be able to find your 3 images choice here. You've already seen a few of her creations on our blog, as we are lucky enough as DT members to use regularly her creation. I really like "working" with her stamps and papers. And today is the favourite theme for all of us...... ANYTHING GOES.....

For a change, I haven't made a card......

I made a sweet box. It was my friend Elly from Crafter's Companion, who offers me one when we met at the NEC last year. It's our "tradition" when we met, each of us is offering something to the other ones.....  I love my box, especially that Elly did it in my favourite colours.....Black and white..... Since I received it, I was wishing to make one, and I thought that today challenge was the perect challenge to try one....

I have used some gold paper with hearts, I bought at the NEC, and I add my "Red hat" from Robyn's store; You can find it here. I have coloured it with some sakura pens and my Spectrum noir in the following shades: 11/12 and 5 and the flower in shades 163/37 and 45. I have finished my box with some ribbon, also bought at the NEC. My step daughter is getting married soon, and I think I will offer it to her with a few nice chocolate in.

I will enter my card in the following challenges:
Gingerloft Challenge : Anything but a card
scrappy frogs challenge : Shape it Up! Challenge
Anything Challenge : Anything Goes
I Brake for Challenge : Anything.....But....
Paper take Weekly : Anything Goes

Have a nice end of Easter week-end, and look forward to reading your comments.

Hi everybody,

How can I talk about sport on a Sunday ?????? It's easy, it's time for a new challenge, challenge 101, at Robyn's Fetish. And this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo; And the winner will be able to spend his/her $21 voucher on the Bugaboo store.

I have made my card using a model, I found in one of my magazine..... Unfortunately for me, all the measurement were wrong....So it took me ages to make it....Lol!!!!! I have coloured my little Bugaboo "Fishing frog" with my Spectrum Noir in the following colours.

Frog : LG3, CG4 and 43
Hat : TN3 and TN4
Bag : 100 and 104
"Canne à pêche" (sorry don't know the word in English and Dave is not with me....) : CG7, BG5, CG1 and CG3

 For my backing paper, I have used a CD from Crafters Companion, and the other one I have made it with my Spellbinder "Fleur de lys" that I have first inked with some Distressed Walnut ink, than I have embossed it.
The "reddish" paper is from my craft box. On it, I have put some golden border as well as a fish. I have finished my card by putting another fish on the top right corner.

That's it for me. Looking forward to see what you'll create as "Cards Depicting Sport".  Am going now to get the barbecue on, so we can have a nice diner and enjoy a bit more sun.

And please, don't forget that I am like you......I love reading your nice comments, so if you pop in here, please take a minute and leave me one.
