2015 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I read about it a few weeks ago and finally it's time for the 2015 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
I entered the Summer Blog Hop (you can reat all about it here) and I wanted to make something for this edition too.
This is what I made:
I chose the adorable Coffee Time - Perfect Blend from Bugaboo Stamps, colored it with Copics and embellished with a ribbon and dots in matching colors.
I've already planned another card for the blog hop, hopefully I can finish it before the hop closes on Oct. 04!
There are already tons of cards, can't wait to start hopping!

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 330 - Phot Inspiration.

Welcome to a new C.R.A.F.T. Challenge!
This week we have a picture to inspire you:
A waterfall!
Inspired by the water, I chose this lovely mermaid:

I colored the image with just a few touches of Copics, the hair being already colored in a soft grey hue.
The stamped sentiment is from an English magazine and papers are a local find.
Aren't they sweet?
Have a look here to see how my fellow DT members have been inspired by the image!
I can't wait to see your takes!

Christmas Card Challenge # 42 - Photo Inspiration.

Welcome to a new Christmas Card Challenge!
We have a photo inspiration for you this week:
In detail:

Isn't it gorgeous?
And this is my take:

Maybe I needed a darker card base to match the night of the pic but I love this turquoise!
Trees are from Lawn Fawn.

Very Girly!

One of my favourite images comes from Broken Box Stock. It was such a pleasure for me to create with their toodles when I was in their DT and sometimes I have a look in my folder to find one of them to work with.
As I said, this is one of my fav:
Their toodles always make me smile and this Bubble Bath Toodle is no excpetion!
I wanted to create a gift for a friend of mine and this plaque is perfect to add outside her renovated bathroom (but I made one for the shop too in case you are interested).
Like me, she loves pink and flowers so it was really funny to make it!
Unfortunately, I only have a shower in my tiny bathroom but, when I look at this girl, I'd love to have a bath tub to lay in with a good book!

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge # 329 - Bling.

It's all about BLING this week at C.R.A.F.T. Challenges!
I LOVE to add bling to my cards and projects!
This is what I've made:
I'm more a coffee person but these sentiments are so cute I couldn't resist!
And I've had a great fun adding pearls, rhinestones and a touch of glitter.
Can't wait to see your bling-y cards and projects!
If you played with us last week or if you need a bit more inspiration, have a look here on the challenge blog!

It's been a while since I found some time to make a card for a challenge and not for a DT request.
I saw the challenge over at Sami Stamps and I thought it was perfect for my new Sami Stamp digi: the theme is "Frame It" and, with the help of my photo stamps from The Alley Way I made this card:
He is the cutest of guys, isn't he? This digi stamp is Warm Sand colored with Copics and the background paper is from Simple Stories. The sentiment in the arrow is from a stamp set I found in a magazine.
Schools started yesterday here so we are definitely back into the winter routine and summer is just a memory. Time really flies in the summer!
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge # 153: Boys, Boys, Boys
Crafty Friends Challenge # 14: B is for... Beach, Boy...

Christmas Cards Challenge # 41 - Anything Goes.

It's Anything Goes again here at Christmas Cards Challenge!
This is my card:

This sweet cat is My Gift! from Whiff of Joy. Colors are a bit unusual for a Christmas card (papers should be from DCWV or maybe First Edition) but I found that this black was not too bad.
Have a look at waht my teamies have done this week:

Summer has gone and Christmas is just around the corner... I'm a bit sad, I'm not ready to get back to the routine!
This is my card:
This lovely snowman is Windy Snowman from QKR, colored with Copics. I used paper from First Edition to cover my base card.
