How to: give a flower

Spring is here! Yesterday we had the first storm this year, which means the spring is really around the corner! I cannot wait!
Today a new challenge starts at
and this time we've got this sketch for you (made by Heather)
Of course you can rotate it or flip it or change the squares into other shapes, but we still have to see this sketch.
Ou sponsor for this challenge is
with their cute animal (and other) stamps.

I made my DT card using this cute fox (what does the fox say?).
For this B'day card I have chosen the 'Fox' digital stamp from our sponsor. It is colored with Promarkers and distressed with distress ink. And it holds the flower in its mouth.
All of these embellishments are from my stash and the brown ribbon is recycled from an X-mas gift.
So, what does the fox say? It says 'I've got a gift for you'.

How to: be a glamour girl

Welcome again! Right now the new challenge starts at
Crafty Catz Challenge Blog Bagde
and today our host is a really talented Dianne. She has chosen the theme
USE DIES AND / OR PUNCHES
Our sponsor for this super-easy challenge is
with their cute stamps.

I made a card for a glamour girl.
For my DT card I used the sponsor's digi 'Diva D'. I dressed her with a black dress and a glitter bag. Classic! The stamp is colored with Promarkers and distressed with black distress ink.
I had to dig really deep in my stash to find this border punch, but this is why I love themed challenges! They remind me of what I own LOL There's also a brand new die used here - a beautiful feather. The rest of the embellishments are from my stash.
The sentiment says 'A glamour girl' and it's in our regional Silesian dialect.

How to: take your dogs for a walk

Hello everyone, I am really happy it's Friday, this has been an exhausted week at work.
We would like to remind that on


there's a new release available


with 5 new digis


One of them has got a special deal, so just visit the shop.

I made my DT card with the same digi as previously, because I love it!
I have chosen 'Fancy with my poodles' again. The stamp is colored with Promarkers, stamped and distressed with distress ink.
For this card I have chosen this beautiful collection of high quality Polish paper from UHK Gallery. Amazing color combo!
There is no sentiment this time, so it can be a card for many occassions.
I just would like to remind, that there's still time (2 days) to enter the latest Sami Stamps challenge.

How to: take care of a friend

Hello everyone, I hope your Sunday is just the way you like. Today a new challenge starts at
and the theme is
SKETCH
And it looks like this
Of course you can flip it, rotate it, change the square into a circle, but we have to see that this is still THIS sketch. Really easy.
Our sponsor for this challenge is
with their cute stamps, these girls are really adorable.

I was quite faithful to the sketch this time, as I am always a little rebel LOL
These cute girls are from our sponsor of course. The digi is named 'A time to share', it's colored with Promarkers and cut a little 'square'. I placed it on a cardboard and distressed the edges.
For my card I used the Bo Bunny paper pack 'Key Lime'. The rest of the embellishments is from my stash.
The sentiment says 'When times are tough, friends are your umbrella'. But it's not in Polish, it's in our local Silesian dialect.

How to: take care of yourself

Welcome again! After all this snow, spring is in the air today! Yay! I cannot wait!
Today a new challenge starts at
and today it is hosted by ME! OMG, OMG!
I have chosen the theme
FOR A SPECIAL LADY
in honour to all of these special women in our lives. And because the International Women's Day is coming, it is a nice occassion to make a card.
Our sponsor for this challenge is

I made a card for my BFF's B'day. She has got curly hair, wears glasses and - last but not least - she loves reading in the bathtub. Do I have to mention, I never lend her any of my books? LOL
I have chosen the sponsor's digi 'Ruby Bubble Trouble', it was perfect for this card. The stamp is colored with Promarkers and I added lots of embellishments on it: acrylic drops, glossy accents and pearls.
I also added my new wooden flower buttons, freshly bought last week. This card is made with my favourite color combo: blue and brown.
The sentiment says 'Be good for yourself'.
Thank you for visiting my blog and please, please, please enter my challenge! LOL

How to: love dogs

Are you a cat or a dog person? I have to admit, I am a cat person, but today at
we are having a new release and

These are so cute, I forget about being a cat person. Just look at these new stamps.


How sweet is that? Samantha is a Master of Cuteness, isn't she?

Here's my DT card for this new release. Definitely for a dog person.
I have chosen 'Fancy with my poodle' digi for this card, as I really love these glamour girls. They are so different from me, wearing tracksuits all day long LOL The stamp is colored with Promarkers and doodled by me. And distressed with distress ink.
Somehow these reds and pinks caught me here, I intended to make a totally different card, but as I said before - sometimes the cards live their own lives. And I don't fight with that LOL Anyway, all of these embellishments are from my stash.
There is no sentiment here except this 'I {heart} dogs' button. And my handwriting.
I would like to remind you that there's a plenty of time to enter our Sami Stamps challenge!
