How to: raise your glass

OMG, this is a very special day! VERY SPECIAL DAY!
Because
KennyK's Krafty Krew.
invited me to be their GDT! I couldn't believe it! This is one of my cardmaking dreams come true, thank you!!!
This is also a very special challenge, because it's a
200th CHALLENGE
so there are plenty of things for you to celebrate with!

First the theme to celebrate properly is
USE BANNERS OR BUNTINGS
Easy. And fun.

Second
there is a brand new stamp named 'Valet', which I used for my GDT card. Simply go to the Kenny K's shop and get it!

And finally the prizes
FIVE gift certificates from FOUR different sponsors

Just go to the challenge blog and find out the details.

And now onto my card.
I decided to go monochrome, as it's a proper and elegant way to celebrate. And suitable for the digi I used.
The 'Valet' is colored with Promarkers and distressed with distress ink. The papers are mixed from different collections and scraps.
The sentiments come from one of the paper pad used for this card.

How to: be a hipster

Running a little bit late, today I would like to share my DT card prepared for the newest challenge at
Blog Badge
which is
FOUR
All you have to do is to use four of something.
Our sponsor for this challenge is

Because having some male cards is always necessary, I made a card for a hipster.
I am using the sponsor's digi 'Hipster'. It is colored with Promarkers, distressed with distress ink and stamped.
For this challenge I used 4 papers and 4 metal embellishments (2 sorts). And 4 different stamps (now I can see, LOL).
The sentiment is obvious, I believe it sounds the same all over the internet.

How to: have that special friend

Hello Crafty Blogland! This is going to be an intensive week plus I am going on my summer holidays on Friday! Yay! Today we would like to announce the next challenge at
Passion for ProMarkers
and this week our talented Julie has chosen the theme of
FLOWERS
Easy-peasy. Make it all flowery or just add a few. It's your creativity that rules your project.
Our sponsor for this challenge is
DSB


I've decided to stay in the middle with this flowers-crazyness.
Our sponsor was so kind and let us choose an image. I am using the 'Pip - so special' and it's really adorable. The digi is colored with Promarkers and distressed with distress ink.
I used flowers on the paper, on the border die and added some here and there. I really hate, when such a small scraps are left, so I tried to use them all this time. Here and there, too.
There is no sentiment on this card, so you can use it for many occassions.

How to: look amazing under water

Hello Everyone! Today one card only, because some challenge blogs are having a summer break. This is the new release time at
and it's perfect for summer holidays

Samantha prepared four beautiful stamps for you! Just look!


For this new release I have chosen number 3.
Ok, I know, I went color-crazy... but this is what I've had in my mind the minute I saw these stamps. The digi is colored & dotted with Promarkers, distressed with distress ink and placed on a 3D foam.
This background paper is probably one of the oldest in my stash, but it makes a perfect scene here.
There's no sentiment on this card, so it could be used for many occassions.
I would like to remind also about our July challenge.
