Polka Dots

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all doing fine. I've just returned from work and with nobody home yet I headed straight to my comp to post my DT card for this week's new challenge. ... but before that .... 
There's another BIG movie going to be filmed here in Malta next month, Murder On the Orient Express, starring Johnny Depp and guess what !!!! they called me to work as an extra  :D :D 
There was a call for extras some time ago but I didn't apply as I didn't feel like waiting in the long queue but apparently they need a lot of extras, with long uncolored hair, so, me being in their database already, as I was an extra previously, and fitting the required look, they called me asking me if I wanted to work as an extra again...... Of course I did I said!! Now next week I have the costume fitting and the week after it's filming.. Yippeee I can't wait woo hoo :)

I still am so excited of all this but back to my card now and as I was saying today I have my DT Card for the new challenge that started today at
The theme for this week is

A really fun challenge I think. This is what I did!
The image that I am using is Fashion Girl from another amazing sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps.
I colored the image with my promarkers, then of course polka dots background paper and lots of fun stuff to finish it off. The bottom buildings image is recycled from a local booklet. I think it came out real nice :)  Love it.

The lucky winner this week will get 4 digi images from our sponsor

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello everyone and a Happy Valentine's Day to all. I hope you had a nice day. Today we got chocolates and a red velvet cake at the office YUM :))  As for me and hubby we decided to stay home and so after work I cooked non stop to do something special and managed to do everything in time... even a dessert .. was so pleased ha ha :) 
Anyway, I thought I would share this last Valentine's Day card that I did for a little girl to give to her daddy. The image is from Digistamp Boutique, which lucky me, I had won some time ago. It's so cute I think :)

 I colored the image with my promarkers, and then added lots of die cuts. Quite a simple card.

I would like to enter my card in these challenges today.

Anything Goes

A new day .. a new month already, the days are already getting nicer here :) and what have we done today ... a busy day it was that's for sure! 
First thing this morning I had medical tests including a blood test and this didn't go so good as SHE JUST COULDN'T FIND MY VEIN!! She tried first one arm then the other and then again the first but it was too much for me!!! I started seeing all white and that was it! I just hate needles and blood. So to the office I went after that, had a funeral in the afternoon and back home I went to check on the new home and there were three cute cats in the garden which the previous owners used to feed. I of course couldn't leave them hungry and so got them some food which they devoured. I am allergic to cats so I can't keep them inside but at least they will not go hungry. Here they are :)

Anyway, time for my DT card now .. actually I have two today and they are both for the new month challenge that started today at

Here is my first one and I am using images, the fun guy and the taxi, both from the Travel bundle from our sponsor Melonheadz. I colored them with my promarkers and used gorgeous paper from a Me & My Big Ideas paperpack. There are more fun images in the bundle, and you will see two more in my next card.

Some fun dies of course to finish it off...  all new ones... the ducks just got them this week from Joanna Sheen and then the sun, the swirly cut lines and the word Summer. I cut out the word twice in yellow and black and I think it came out really nice like this :) 

My second card now and this time I am using the sweet girl and the luggage set from the Travel bundle. There are still more images in the bundle, I had actually printed them too, but I didn't manage to use them in my cards together.
 I have again colored both images with my promarkers and the tall buildings are also from my Me & My Big Ideas paperpack. The background DP is from a Docraft paperpack, on which I stamped some fun circle stamps and the Happy Holliday verse is a clear stamp. 

The lucky winner this month will get one bundle of digis from our sponsor.

The Key to My Heart

Hello everyone. I hope you had a good weekend. I had a day off today because as I said previously today we got to sign the contract for our new home so had a very busy day too as after that we went there to take the water and electricity readings and then we went to meet a designer for our new kitchen and that took ages!!! Well a busy and exciting day! Got the keys now and so it's officially ours. Can't wait to start refurbishing it, obviously lots to do as want to change the tiles, change the bathrooms and have of course to buy the furniture. The boys both want the same room and I don't know how I am going to decide on this!!! Wow this blog recently has become like my diary now besides my blog to post my cards. ...
Some more exciting news now as yesterday received another reservation for our apartment, this time in April for seven nights, so extra extra happy :D

Anyway, so now it's time for a card. Don't usually post on a Monday but lately I've been having lots of crafty mojo and I made this card, so I had to share it. It must be because I am very happy that I bought lots of new dies he he  :)

So here I have two new dies that I bought ... the Heart Breeze dies from Simon Says and the wordings from Brittannia Dies.

Anyway I have my DT Card today for the new challenge that started today at

So for this week again I have another girly card but this time for a change I decided to do a baby girl card. These always come in so handy and another colleague is expecting, this time a girl, so it won't be staying long in my box :D
To do my card I decided to use this gorgeous image from All That Scraps and I colored her with my promarkers. Lots of die cuts of course, the bottom one is from Crafty Sentiments, the centre one is from Nellie's Multi Frame Dies and the rest are from eBay... new ones.
The background DP are from a Me To You paper pack.
