CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for July.

 
This month my creation is a little notepad:
 
 
This little pad is covered with patterned paper and decorated with a digi stamp from Birdie Brown. I colored the pears with Copics and added a ribbon with bow to the pad.
 
These sweet pears are lovely, aren't they?
 
As usual, have a look at all the lovely creations from the DT: you can find them all here!

Happy Summer!

It seems summer is finally here! It's sunny, it's warm and days are long!
 
A few days ago I was inspired by the challenge over at Creative Inspirations and made this card:
 
 
The theme is "Here Comes the Sun" and I thought this little girl from Pollycraft (available through C.C. Designs) was perfect: she makes me think about sunny days at the park!
 
I hope you like it as much as I do!

What a busy month May has been! Sorry for my lack of posts but I was really really busy making party decorations for little girls... I should start posting some of them here on the blog too!
 
Anyways, June 1 means a new CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge!
 
This is my card:
 
 
I used Have a 'Beary' Sweet Day digi stamp from Gerda Steiner and papers from Docrafts. A little card for a super-sweet friend!

CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for May.

Hello!
 
I really don't know where April has gone... It's a month I like very much and I'm always sad when it's over!
 
Anyway, the first of the month means only one thing: CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge!
 
This is my card for May:
 
 
I chose this super cute Astronaut boy from Bugaboo Digi Stamps, colored him with Copics and used a sky-themed paper from an Italian brand as background.

Gerda Steiner April Challenge.

Good afternoon and welcome to my blog!
 
Today I'm happy to share a new card with you:
 
 
These adorable gnomes are from Gerda Steiner and I received it for free since I had taken part in their March Challenge.
 
I opted for a father-daughter theme and made a Father's Day card.
 
We have already had Father's Day in Italy (March 19) but I know that in many Countries it'll be in June so there's plenty of time to make some new cards for that day!
 
I'd like to enter the following challenge:

Gerda Steiner March Challenge.

I'm finally here with my card for this month's challenge at Gerda Steiner!
 
We received another super-cute digi stamp this month and this is my card:
 
 
I colored this adorable cat in the shelf with my Copics and positioned it on papers from Dovecraft.
I don't have a cat but if I did, I'd love to have one like this!
 
Can't wait to see the next image!

Gerda Steiner February Challenge.

Happy Sunday!
 
I'm here today with my card for Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge:
 
 
These super-cute bunnies were sent to all those who took part in their January Challenge and I must confess I've fallen in love with them!
 
Instead of making a love or Valentine card, I opted for a birthday-themed card using papers I found in a local shop. I digged in my drawers for hours because I remembered I had a paper with red tulips which matched perfectly the tulip of the image and it was worth the search!
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Gerda Steiner January Challenge.

Good afternoon!
 
I'm finally back here after a terrible flu which prevented me from taking part in Bugaboo Birthday Bash. I printed tons of images and started working on the second card but I had to surrender to fever and cough...
 
Back on track now with my monthly card for Gerda Steiner Progressive Challenge:
 
 
The image we were given was this super-cute Panda in Love digital stamp. I took out all my pink Copics and had fun coloring hearts in different shades of pink and red!
The background paper was from my stash as well as the two lilac buttons!
 
Can't believe that Valentine's Day is not too far away...
 
I'd like to enter the following challenges:

CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for January.

Happy New Year!
 
I'm happy to announce that I'm now part of CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge Design Team!
 
It'll be a great change from my usual Christmas cards... new challenges for the new year!
 
This is my card for this month:
 
 
My patterned paper is from Doodlebug, an old Valentine collection which I still love with its pinks and reds!
 
The digi stamp is from Pink Petticoat colored with Copics and glitter.
 
I thought that this sentiment could be a good wish for a 2018 full of love for everyone!
