Creatively Speaking...

I had a very good week :D! A new card kit arrived with these gorgeous papers in it, so I made three cards with it and I'm very pleased with them :D. Job hunting-wise the week was less successful, no job in sight yet...but I'll keep on trying!


Made this card for the new challenge over at The Sugar Bowl blog, which is Mother's Day cards/creations. In the UK they're slightly ahead with Mother's Day, it's this Sunday, so it's nice to have my card finished for "our" Mother's Day on 10 May already :D! Thank you for making me so efficient Sugar Bowl Sweeties ;o)!

And I made this one for the Whiff of Joy Monday Challenge blog, which is a lovely sketch that I'll be using more often! Unfortunately, as the title of the blog suggests, the challenge didn't run from Monday to Monday, but Wednesday to Wednesday, so I'm too late and their new challenge is green...let's see if I have some green papers somewhere ;o)


Meet Lovely Lacey, the object of the affections of all the boys at her high school ;o). They vie with each other to carry her book bag, bring her lunch tray to the table and of course sit next to her (if they were allowed to, they'd feed her too!) and to shoot deathly glances at every teacher who so much as dares to ask Lacey a difficult question ;o). Lacey enjoys all the attention but the boys get no more from her than a kiss on the cheek as a thank you, she's just not that kind of girl ;o)

Ingredient list:
Sugar Nellie stamp, Daisy Bucket sentiment, Dream Street papers, Daisy D's flowers, brads, charm

Whiff of Joy stamp, Hero Arts sentiment, Dream Street papers, Prima flowers, brads, buttons, spacers, Joy! crafts pearls

Magnolia stamp, Daisy Bucket sentiment, Dream Street papers, Daisy D's flowers, Doodlebug brads, Joy! crafts pearls, button, ribbon

That's all from me for now, thank you for stopping by and have a lovely week!

Erg mooie kaartje heb je gemaakt en super ingekleurd.
Wat het werk betreft is het gewoon een moeilijke tijd. Ik zit in het zelfdeschuitje. Maar we geven NIET op.
Groetjes Sinikka

Je maakt prachtige kaartjes. Ook ik zat de afgelopen 3 maanden zonder werk. Heb me maar helemaal gestort op het maken van kaarten. Gelukkig afgelopen week weer een baan gevonden voor 16 uur per week. Voor iedereen komt er wel weer iets op zijn pad, geloof daar maar in.
Liefs Marie-louise
