Hello everyone!!
It's time for another Blog Hop by Papertrey ink!!!
I received my new goodies only a few days ago and I can't wait to use them!!!
This time the challenge is to use felt on a project...
well, I was playing around with my new argyle set (which is awesome by the way!! Congrats Lisa!!) and I created some patterned papers which I HAD to use!! So with my patterned paper all ready to go, all I had to do was think how to use my felt... and what prettier than a felt flower!!!??
I decided to stay simple with this card so that the patterned paper I created would stand out!!

I cut the leaves from the delightful dahlia dies set and I used some golden wire around the center of the flower. The sentiment is from the Enjoy the ride stamp set.

...and some detail...
That's all......
Thank you for visiting!!

Here I am again!! It's time for another Waltzing mouse blog hop and I made a card to participate...
I can't seem to stop using the Roses in bloom set! I think it's by far my favorite.... but I also love my newly arrived L'il Buddies!!! So I combined the two of them!
I stamped my colored cardstock with the rose from the first set. I used the circle with hearts and the happy birthday sentiment from the second set. The leaves are from PTI "Turn a new leaf" stamped in ripe avocado.
I think it turned out quite elegant!!

And here is some detail...

Thanks for visiting and Happy Birthday Waltzingmouse Stamps!!!!!
See you soon...

Hiya everyone!!
Today it's my father's birthday..... so I though of making a birthday card for him to just tell how much we all love him!!
I used the stamp set L'il buddies by Waltzingmouse stamps which arrived just yesterday on my mail box! I was just thrilled to find the set cause I've been waiting for ages to get it!!!! LOL
I just couldn't hold my hands away from it!!!
So here is the birthday card I created for my dad!!

I stamped this super cute lamb in black ink and used some puffy paint for hair.... I think it was quite nice...
Used my nestabilities to cut out the circles and my copics to add details.
I embossed a strip of paper and rolled over ink in three different shades of beige, brown and black. It was fun!! I had seen this tecnhique a lot of times around the bloggoland but had never tried it out!! So this was a first!!! I also used some gems which I got from Simon says stamps just yesterday as well just to add a bit of color!
And here's a little details of the little guy!!

This card was really fun to make!!! Hope you like it as much as I did!! LOL
Happy birthday Dad!!! We love you!!!

Thanks for visiting!!!

Good May morning everyone!!
Mother's day is just round the corner so I thought of making something for my mum and my mum-in-law, as they're both very special in my life!!
This is what I came up with...

I used a bronze sheet to cut out the butterfly and the flower and then embossed them. The "mother" I used comes from the set "Roses in bloom" from Waltzingmouse stamps, and I think it's one of my favorites so far!!! I simply love it.... and of course looooove its versatility!!
So I'm giving this to my mum and I'm making one more for my mother-in-law (my second mother!), to give them along with the card I made for them a few days ago!.
That's all....
Thanks for visiting and Happy Mother's Day to all moms!!!!

Happy spring!!!
Spring (or better summer with those high temperatures here!) here is at its peak!!!! I think this is my favorite time of the year... two steps away from winter and just half step away from summer!!!
I've quite lazy lately taking advantage of the beautiful weather and taking some long walks with my daughter (when this is possible in a town like Athens where there is absolutely no planning for strollers...... sniff!!). Therefore I've made no new cards lately although I've got sooo many ideas in my head!!
This is a little something I made for a friend's baby last week.

And some details.....

I stamped and heat embossed the name, I stitched the flower stems and used my big shot to cut some flowers from designer papers. I used a paper punch for the leaves. I also stamped butterflies and the grass, both from PTI stamp sets....
Hope you like it. Thanks for visiting!!
And have a super beautiful, warm, sunny and happy May!!!!!!
