Hi Everybody,

I am on vacation again, so I won't have too much time visiting your blogs, but I'll catch up when I'll be back home.....
I love the TAWS inspiration photo, but found it quite difficult to come up with something - to capture the movement and the delicate colors....

I don't feel I was very successful with my attempt - its definitely too green, but I do like the card that came out of this:

I used the Holiday Sparkles set for the background - I heat embossed it onto watercolor paper. I then added watercolor. The black strip on the side is from Awesome Blossom and the sentiment is from the set All about You.

I added generous amount of Stickles to the snowflakes (shows a little bit in the picture), some liquid pearls to the black dotted strip and lastly added the bird (Bird Brain), which I fussy cut. 

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Your colour scheme is great; the green, white and black are very eyecatching.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg.

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
