How to: hug the Frosty

Hello everyone, I hope you are all in a joyful X-mas mood. It seems this year's X-mas won't be a 'white X-mas', but I am not going to cry for that. I have a snowman today anyway!
This is the new release day at
Feel Free to Grab My Badge for Your Blog!
and just take a look at this wonderful collection of Frosty Cuties!

Sami Stamps Shop


My oh my, which one to choose? Our Team prepared some wonderful winter cards with these, so you better visit them and check their super-inspiring creations!
If you visit the Sami Stamps store, remember that

And here's my card.
The 'Frosty Hugs' stole my heart at the first sight. The stamp is colored with Promarkers and distressed.
I have found these two coral pieces of paper from two separate collections and decided to go that way. It looks good with white and black only, don't you think?
The sentiment says 'The magic of X-mas' and it's a freebie from HERE.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

How to: ride the sleigh

I am almost finished with all my project this year, but there are so many things going on!
Today I would like to share a GDT card prepared for
Crafting By Designs
and their newest challenge
EMBOSSING
Dry or heat, it doesn't matter.

I've chosen dry.
I am using a vintage printable found on Pinterest. The photo is distressed with distress ink and placed on a 3D foam.
You can find the embossing on the white cardboard behind the photo. I almost covered it totally. I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder with snowlakes. All of the embellishments are from my stash.
There is no sentiment this time, but I used some stamped tickets and labels.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for inviting me for a GDT spot!

How to: have a December B'day party

Hello Blogland, I hope you day is sunny and warm, as mine. Today I would like to share a B'day card for a person having B'day in December, which is not good, because everyone is crazy about X-mas. I know what I'm talking about, I am one of these persons, too.
How about a December B'day party?
For this card I am using the Kenny K's digi 'Fabby Farah' and she's so fab, really! The digi is colored with Promarkers, has got a glittery dress and is placed on a 3D foam.
I added lots of sequins here. This is a card for a friend's friend. Her name is Hania and she loves turquoise color and parties. Because I used lots of bling, the only one embellishment more is washi tape.
The sentiment says 'Best wishes' and it's a rubber stamp.

How to: turn on the 'last minute' mode

Hello Crafty Bloggers, this is really the last minute to finish all of these X-mas creations and project. And I am still far far from finish.

But first let me tell you how I spent the last week's Sunday. The days go so quickly, I hadn't much time to upload these photos earlier. Twice a year me and my Mum paricipate in the Craft Show in our town. The Craft's name is 'Nice Things Fair'. How cute! My stall was not too big, but really friendly in my opinion.

And you would never guess what sold out first? Bookmarks! And they say people don't read books! Well, what do you know?
The next show is in March, so I better prepare some more bookmarks! LOL

Anyway, it's high time to announce the last challenge this year at

This time our talented Jac has chosen
LAST MINUTE X-MAS
Think last minute cards, tags, gifts, decorations. Everything X-mas.
We have got two sponsors for this challenge

and

How cool is that?

My DT project is a wine tag this time. First ever.
I couldn't resist to use this funny digi from Make It Crafty named 'Big Bob's little gift'. It's colored with Promarkers and placed on a 3D foam.
This tag is for a woman infact, that's why I added some lace, ribbon and a bow. All from my stash.
The sentiment is a rubber stamp and it says 'Merry X-mas'.

I've decided to go monochrome with my DT card.
I used only a few shades from my brown Promarkers color palette, but it looks good I think. I used the sponsor's stamp 'In the cold'. It's distressed with distress inks and placed on a 3D foam.
I used four dies for this card, you can play and try to guess. Everything is from my stash.
