Time Out Challenge #34


Greetings! As you probably saw in my previous post, there is something going on again. The post was really short. And yes, that means that the inflammation of my tendons is still here. Again, I have to be careful with what I am doing over the day with my hands. I can move them normally, but I feel the tension and sometimes the pain too. During the last days I was able to create a card for our next TO Challenge. We have this fun home photo as an inspiration:

I would also like to take this opportunity to carry on with a tradition I have started, presenting to you another DT colleague. This time, I decided to show you some inspiration from our Anita. She leaves in France and has a unique CAS style. Check out for yourself, and to see even more of these beauties, visit her blog.

kolazAt the beginning of this post I shared only a portion of my card, and if you would like to see the entire card, and some more inspiration from the team, please visit TO Challenge blog.

Time Out Challenge #33

Hello, people! We have a super cool challenge for you this week! Let’s get Inspired by Words:
‘Happy is the bride that the sun shines on’

Often I really enjoy making wedding cards. And you? Join us in this fun challenge at Time Out Challenge Blog.

CAS with one little stamp

Greetings! I am just stopping by to share my two CAS cards. I was playing around with one little stamp and a lot of white space. :)

Card is linked at: Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

Time Out Challenge #32

Hello, hello! Time Out Challenge #32 is here. Our theme is: CASE With Your Own Twist. It was fun to create a card for this one. I really enjoyed it. Especially since I am slowly coming back and recovering from my past health problems with my hand(s). Today I will make a change and publish a bit different post then usual. I will start with several photos of my card.

And, now I will share a photo of the card that is our inspiration for this Challenge.

TOC - CASEing Deepti
Quite nice and creative challenge, don’t you think? Join us! Come on! You have two weeks. Deepti is our Guest today, and here is how she would briefly describe her self:

“I am a sketch artist by default and a card maker by choice. My card making started with making some new year cards back in 2013 and now it has turned into a passion.”

Besides the fact that she makes super gorgeous cards, she also designs stamps (for STAMPlorations). Well, I hope you will have some time out in your week to create your project for this challenge.

My usual CAS wedding cards

Hi! Today I made this CAS wedding card. If you are a regular visitor to my blog you already know that I make this kind of cards quite often. I love to use this intricate die set and make different combinations with die cuts. It perhaps does not look very CAS, but let me assure you that it takes around 15 minutes to create something like this. Anyway, I just cut several pieces of paper and used one of my Croatian stamps.

I decided to take a photo of it outside and during the photo session realised that I have a guest behind my card.

This little fellow put a smile on my face.

I hope you enjoyed your stay. :)

Inspired by: CASology Challenge.

Playing with colours

Hello! Today I made a quick project for a dear friend using Color Throwdown Challenge. It was easy and quite fun.

I hope you find it inspiring.

Time Out Challenge #31

Time really flies when you have fun! Our next Time Out Challenge is here. Or to be more precise, TOC #31. Before I share my card and some details about the challenge, let me introduce to you my fellow blogger Nonni. Nonni is from Northern Finland, has a great CAS style and loves card making and challenges just like me.

You got to love them! They make me want to create some CAS cards. Look how many techniques, colours, and combinations one has. It is good to be creative. :)
Now, If you would like to see another great creation made by her, please visit TO Challenge Blog and check out her card for this challenge. Be inspired by other creations, and join us creating some grunge project with the optional twist of embossing. This Challenge is sponsored by STAMPlorations and the prize is $10 gift voucher for the winner and $10 gift voucher, chosen randomly for those who twist with us.
And now, at the end, let me share my card for today. I have embossed the base of the card, and added several panels of patterned paper. It was fun and quite easy.

I hope you enjoyed your stay today. Have a great rest of the day!

Virginia’s View Challenge #14

Greetings dear friends! I am slowly coming back in my creative mood. I saw this challenge and decided to make a simple wedding card for my colleague using layers of paper cut with one of my favourite die set.


I just never get bored of this set.

Time Out Challenge #30

Hello, hello, hello! I am finally back!!! It is so good to be here again. And at my crafting table too. My hand is much better. I can hold scissors!!! I feel really good. :)  That means that I am back with our TO Challenge team, and that means that we have prepared another challenge for you. It is a great joy and pleasure to announce a very fun, easy and beautiful Challenge #30. Today, as it is my custom, I will first share several cards from a fellow blogger.

They were all created by Shery. Shery is really creative lady, lives in Central California and will soon have a baby. Her cards are so simple, and yet so beautiful. Love her ideas and the way she uses stamps, colours and just one layer of paper. :)
If you would like to see another great creation made by her, please visit TO Challenge Blog and check out her card for this challenge. Be inspired by other creations, and join us creating something with lines, flowers or just colours from our inspirational photo:

Well, now it is time to show my card. It is a shy start, but it was fun, exciting and motivating. From now on, I hope we will “see us” much often. ;)


On A Sick Leave

Hello, dear friends! It was a long time ago, I know. But, let me just tell you that I have a good reason for it. Unfortunately, for some time I will not be able to enjoy all the fun of card-making. I have sever case of tendonitis on my both hands. Not fun at all. I am not able to hold scissors or do anything that demands a grip or any kind of pressor. It is hard and I know it is still not over. To make things a bit more happier, I decided to share several photos with you. I realised it is easier to live with tendonitis if you just walk around. :) Probably the only time of the day that I am not using my hands. :) So, feel the spring that is slowly coming in my town.

At the end, let me share a Challenge with you. Time Out is celebrating a very 1st birthday. The Challenge is fun, and the prizes are sweet, so there is no reason for you not to join in. ;) And have you seen all the beautiful projects? I can’t wait to see your creations.
