Gothic Arches - Winter sports

Ok, christmas is over... but I can't seem to make friends with winter and snow unless it has something to do with christmasy sparkle. Plus - you can't start making christmas cards too early, right? ;)) This is my entry for this weeks challenge.

Pennants swap

This swap was hosted by Lisa at Simple Journeys - quite some time ago - I'm really ashamed that I didn't get to show the banner earlier. But - better late than never ;) Thank you all who participated for these wonderful wonderful pennants!

Art creation friday

This is my first time to participate in the challenge of art creation friday . What fun! Be sure to check out the site - wonderful inspiration!!!

I made this card using Golden Gel Medium for the image transfer (I love transfer!!!:)) on a watercolored background. Stamps are by Nara Studio and Time to stamp.

thank you june

I got this award form june and I I'm very honored to have gotten it. Now the thing is that you have to pass it on to 7 other blogs... But - after having joined the gypsy caravan of the One World One Heart event - it's impossible for me to pass it on to just 7!!! There are so many awesome blogs out there! I pass this award on to all the participants of OWOH! thank you all for showing your wonderful artwork!

TGIF - books

I made this simple card for the TGIF challenge this week. The background is cheap brown paper - crumpled and sponged with bleach, then I sanded it a little. The writing and the watch are white embossed and highlighted with perfect pearls. That never shows on the screen though... :(

WS - Lace

Perfect theme for me :)) alot of my projects include lace, I can never get enough of it...

I also used some pink pepper on this one - I brought it home from Egypt about five years ago. It looks and smells so nice, but there is no way I would ever acctually EAT any of it - The color is not even waterproof ;)
So the theme of this card may as well be : Sugar and spice and all the things nice - that's what little girls are made of :))
