OMG, it's so hard to get back on the craft track after a few weeks off. I feel like my hands were made out of wood, coloring has never been so hard! Need to do some gym.
To have a good start I've prepared a card for the Kenny K's challenge with the digi I won lately. Check this out!
This stamp is hilarious! And no matter how big the kid is, they all look exactly the same. My fiance (age 39) looks exactly like this while playing on his Xbox or PSP or whatever this is called. Plus screaming some words I cannot write here LOL
This is the Kenny K's stamp 'Boy gamer' - it's colored with Promarkers and I added some embossing and distressing.
The papers are from Bo Bunny 'Our little monster' paper pack and I added pearls and metal embellishments.
The sentiment is a freebie from HERE and it says 'For your B'day'.
Coming back home after vacation can be annoying... everything is so grey, usual and dusty... Me no like it!
Anyway, I've spent a lovely time in Italy, both visiting towns and hiding in the 'middle of nowhere' agroturismos with wonderful food, wine and silence. No, I didn't take my Promarkers with me LOL
Staying in romantic mood, here's our new challenge at
and the theme is
DIG DEEP IN YOUR STASH
How many times you have found something with 'OMG! I totally forgot I have these!'? Yep, this is that kind of a challenge.
Our sponsor for this one is
So, I digged deep and said 'OMG! I totally forgot I have got this stamp!' And it was perfect for the wedding card I have been asked to make.
For this easel card I am using the rubber stamp 'Love me do' from Wee Stamps. And I have no idea why I've hidden it so well. It's colored with Promarkers, cut with Spellbinders die and distressed with distress ink.
The bow is also made from a piece of fabric I've been having like forever and the pearl button is from my Mum's stash.
There is no sentiment on the card, just the Bride and Groom's names and the date of wedding.
This time I am greeting you from Czech Republic on my way home from a wonderful vacation. Muuuuum, I don't want to go hoooooome! No, just kidding, I am always glad to be home. Anyway...
Today a brand new challenge starts at
and it couldn't be more obvious
BY THE SEA / BEACH
We are sponsored by
with their cute images, so you better enter!
This time I've decided to make a collage card and give it a little vintage feeling. Just like the old-fashioned postcards.
I am using the sponsor's stamp 'Chloe with Ice Cream' together with some freshly bought new shades of Promarkers. My collection is still not complete, but I am trying to do my best LOL The stamp is placed on a 3D foam.
For this card I used the Kaisercraft's 'Paradiso' paper pack with so many fab details. I also added some post stamps, which I adore.
There is no sentiment this time, I only used some words describing the vacation from the paper collection.
Phew, it's been a week and my Italian holidays are coming to the end, but in the meantime let me present my DT project for the brand new challenge at
It's the first challenge for Crafty Catz being hosted by our lovely Ingrid, so make some noise, people! Ingrid has chosen the theme
It's always a good idea to recycle something and give a new life to the things instead of throwing them out (like husband for example).

I really wanted to try something new, and my Mum's friend asked for 'something nice' for her daughter's wedding, where she could hide the 'parent's blessing' (in Poland there is a tradition that the parents - both of bride and groom - bless their children for their new life to be happy). I've had some boxes collected for my school crafts with kids, so... here's what I ended with.
And this is it's previous look.
For making this box I have used some scraps left from another projects, a washi tape, lace, ribbon, pearls, fabric flowers, twine and a wooden sentiment. I also made a mini-book with the 'blessing' text (written by the Mother of bride).
The sentiment says 'This Day'.
And guess what. A Mother of the groom wants the same box! Anyone having a 'Laughing cow' box to recycle?
I prepared this B'day card for a girl who plays a guitar.
I've had some teenage summer holidays in mind while creating this, you know, hot evening, sitting near the fire, playing guitar and singing. I am using a ScrapBerry's sillicone stamp 'Creativeness', I really like them, they are so cute I bought more of these lately. The stamp is colored with Promarkers and distressed with distress ink.
I am using a digital paper set again, and my good old HP Deskjet still can manage with these. This is a freebie from Shabby Princess 'Sun Porch', perfect colors for summer. The flower is from Magnolia die and I added a bow made of twine on it.
The sentiment says 'The most beautiful wishes' and it's a freebie from HERE.
