Anything Goes

Good afternoon everyone. Hope you are having a lovely weekend doing lots of crafting. Me unfortunately haven't been much in a crafty mood lately. Been very busy and things not really so  good, which of course takes away all the motivation to craft!  We still haven't concluded the house plans and the Italian guests we have at the moment are not very nice :( .. They were smoking in the apartment, even though it's against the rules, which triggered the fire alarm late at night, and I also noticed the electric cooker burned when I went to switch off the alarm. They even had the cheek to insist they weren't smoking, even though I saw a stubbed cigarette in one of my ceramic decorations! :(  They are still there unfortunately, as they leave on Tuesday, so I'm counting the day.

Anyway, got my DT card today for the new challenge at

This time the challenge is an easy
For my card I am using this gorgeous image, A Gentle Touch, from our sponsor Crafty Sentiments, and I colored it with my promarkers. I added some nice ribbon, two flowers and two heart embellishments, die cuts and punched border and corner as well. Really love how it turned out.

The lucky winner of this challenge will receive three digi images from our sponsor.

Anything Goes - April

Hello everyone. Wow I just cant believe we're in April already .. time is flying by so quickly!! We still haven't concluded the new house plans ufff .. our architect is taking sooo long and so I'm very very disappointed and getting really frustrated :(  I just want to start and move in :(  Hopefully hopefully next week, for our third appointment we will conclude. Fingers crossed xx .. 

Some more news :) Will be hosting our first guests for this year next Saturday in our rental home, they are from Germany, then the week after we will host our second guests, this time from Italy, so I'm very excited. Still have a few days available in April if anyone is interested, which days I have put down in price too. In those days there is the Malta Annual Fireworks festival and the Green Festival going on here in Malta, so many good reasons to have a short break .... plus of course the gorgeous sunny Spring weather :) Check it out here please ... Thanks.

Anyway, now onto my DT Card and this time I have my card for the new monthly ANYTHING GOES challenge at Crafting By Design

 We are this month sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, so of course we are all using one of their gorgeous and fun images. I am using Chef Pierre which I have colored with my promarkers.

Happy Easter

Hello everyone. Finally we got our appointment on Monday with the architect to plan the changes we want to do for our new house yay yay :) He is such a busy man, we waited so much for this appointment and I called and called his secretary everyday!!

Anyway, it's a new challenge today at

B is for ...

Good afternoon everyone. I hope you are having a nice weekend. Mine didn't start so good unfortunately as on Friday me and some colleagues went to Sicily for a day and our flight back to Malta got delayed for over 10 hours due to fog  :( They just gave us some food and drinks but no accommodation for the night, which we were expecting as we weren't traveling with these cheap low-cost airlines........ so we spent the night at the airport on uncomfortable chairs!!! We only got on the plane this morning at 6.00am and so was really tired. Well we will now complain about this and hopefully we will get some compensation.

Anyway got my DT card to share today for the new challenge that started today at

The theme for this fortnight is a fun
B is for...
 I'm sure you will find lots of things starting with B, as for me I did.. balloons, butterfly, birthday and the color blue. The image that I am using is the cute Birthday Kitty from another of our amazing sponsor Sami Stamps.

I hope you will be able to join us for this challenge.

A Sympathy Card

With hubby away today, I thought to share this Sympathy card that I made recently. I do not really like to make these type of cards, but I was asked to do it by a friend of mine as she wanted something different, and that it was for her friend whose child passed away, so I just couldn't refuse.

Anyway, this is what I came up with.

I found this beautiful angel stamp, which I colored with my promarkers, with my other stamped images and thought it would be very nice for what I needed. The sentiment I found it on the internet and printed it on my comp. It says... An angel opened the book of life and whispered, as she closed the book, too beautiful for earth....  So beautiful I think!
Just some peel offs then, ribbon, a bow and three flowers to finish it off.
I hope they liked it.

3 Patterned Papers

What a sad day today for Malta ... this morning the famous Azure Window in Gozo has collapsed into the sea and is no longer there. There is not even a trace of it and it's like it never existed : (  
Experts had said that it will collapse in six or so years, so everyone is so shocked by this as we were not expecting it so soon! The Azure Window was one of the world's most famous landmarks attracting many tourists and also featured in many films, like the Clash of the Titans, Odyssey, The Count of Monte Cristo and also lately in the Game of Thrones! Nothing could have been done to avoid this unfortunately! That's me last year, so glad we went!

Anyway, I have a DT card to share today for the new challenge that started today at 

The theme for this week is
3 Patterned Papers

 I can tell you it wasn't an easy one for me, in fact I think my card is not one of my best, but at least the image is really cute and makes up for this :) 

The image is Cupid Balloon Holder from our sponsor Eureka Stamps and I colored him with my promarkers. I used again my new sentiment die cuts and finished it off with a bow, three hearts embellishments and a corner die cut.

The lucky winner this week will get 3 images from our sponsor.

Anything Goes

Hello everyone and again I'm late with my DT Card this week :/   ... It's filming time this week for the movie Murder on the Orient Express starring Johnny Depp so I've been waking up at 4.00am to be there at 5.00am and returning back home at about 6.00pm!!! So very very tiring, but at least it's fun, I'm doing something different from the usual work routine and I get to meet lots of people and making friends. Unfortunately we didn't get to see Johnny Depp boo hoo :(  :( as the scene they are filming here is near the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and he wasn't there, but at least we got to see another famous actor, Kenneth Branagh yea yea :) (from the film Harry Potter), who is also directing the film. I'm a muslim, having a blue long veil, so when you are watching the film, just remember that I am in that scene and keep a look out for me too ha ha

Anyway, let's get on to my DT Card and this time it's for the new 
Monthly ANYTHING GOES challenge that started last Wednesday at

This month our lovely DT Sharon will be sponsoring the challenge and is offering a stamp as a prize to the lucky winner so we are all using one of our favourite stamps.
 I can tell you it was very difficult to choose a stamp as I have so many that I like, so in the end I decided on a stamp from Kenny as I just love them all, and also as I had just did this card and being so tight on time lately it fit perfectly for the theme.

Have colored the image with my promarkers, digi paper for the background, happy birthday sentiment and then added some die cuts to finish it off. ... John just loves gadgets and TV and computers, so he he this guy was just right for him.

It's Almost Spring

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a nice weekend. I'm a bit late this week with my DT Card, sorry. I've had a very very busy week. It was hubby's birthday last Wednesday, and since it was his 50th birthday, we went for a night at a hotel. At first we weren't going to do anything special, with all the expenses we have with the new house, but then on the last minute we decided to do this! Besides that, we again went to see more kitchens, I had to go for the costume fitting for my upcoming working as EXTRA in the film Murder on the Orient Express, and then yesterday it was Carnival party time. This year I didn't prepare anything to wear, so at the last minute, on the day of the party, I was fixing up my costume!!! Waaaah :P .. So what I did I found an old skirt of mine, the top from another costume, scarfs to which I attached some fun embellishments and hey ho I got a gypsy costume ha ha .. here's me yesterday with my friends at the party. I think it came out ok!!

But onto my card now.. and my DT Card this time is for the new challenge that started this week at

The theme this time is

This is what I did, using an image from our sponsor Beccy's Place
 I colored the cute doggie from the Dog Tales set with my promarkers and then I had loads of fun finishing off my card with many die cuts. The sun and rainbow ones are new ones which i got recently. I really love how it turned out.

The winner this week will get one set of digis from our sponsor

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
