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.

Time Out Challenge #25

Hello, people! It is time for TO Challenge #25 and time to meet another team member. Please, take a moment and look at these lovely creations.

They were made by our dear Sandie. A lady that always has a nice and encouraging word for you. She comes from England and is pretty amazing just like her cards.
If you would like to see another great creation made by her, please visit TO Challenge Blog. Be inspired by other creations, and join in the fun for this challenge. We were all inspired by words Rock around the Clock.
And now, before I share my creation with you I would like to apologize for brevity and typos. I did not wrote this post on my mobile device, rather I believe I have a sever tendinitis in both wrists. God only knows how will this end up. Pray for me. I am an workaholic. Even worse, a hyperactive workaholic. This is pretty bad situation for me.


Time Out Challenge #24

Greetings, my dear friends! It is time for brand new TO Challenge! I am continuing my new tradition of presenting a team member every time we have a challenge. So, again I have randomly decided to take a moment and write a thing or two about…


Lynn is from USA and has 4 beautiful sons. I love her cards. They are always so clean, simple, unique and perfect. Look for yourself. :)
It was really hard to show only several of them, so please visit her blog and enjoy some more.
And now, it is time for you to be creative and make a project inspired by this lovely card:
Please, check out TOC blog for more info and for more inspirational ideas. And finally, let me share my creation for this occasion. :)

Time to relax

Hello, hello! We were sick these days and still did not completely recover. So, I finally took some time today and made my card. And right at the beginning, my hubby decided to craft a bit with me. We are married for 13 years and this is first time ever that he joined me at my desk. He made these sweet little notebooks and realized that I have some fancy stamps and he went ballistic.
IMG_4506He is very thoughtful and creative. He made them for our dear friends. Please note his thumb covered with ink. ;) He is a big fan of fountain pens.
And now, here is my card. I went with some fun and gentle colors, trying to make a clean and simple card.
IMG_4518The card is inspired by these challenges: Colour Q, Retro Sketches, Simon Says Stamp and ShowCASe Challenge.

Time Out Challenge #23

Hello, hello! It is time for brand new TO Challenge! I am continuing my new tradition of presenting a team member every time we have a challenge. So, today I have randomly decided to take a moment and write a thing or two about…

Gerrina Poncin

Gerrina is from Netherlands and is very creative. She loves photography and has a really special style. I love how here cards often look like little paintings. Here are several creations that I particularly like:

Beautiful cards! If you would like to see more, visit her blog – Gerrina’s Creative World.
And now, regarding our challenge #23… It is time to be creative and incorporate hearts to your handmade projects. Our theme is Valentine’s Day with the optional twist of hearts. Check out TOC blog for more info and for more inspirational ideas. And, at the end, I will share my card with you. I went with the sewing machine… ;)

I hope you like it. While thinking about the sketch and all the ways how to include a heart or two on my card, I was led by one other Challenge – Fusion Card Challenge.

My second CAS card

Hello, dear friends! I promised to share my second card I have created during the weekend. I got inspired to make this CAS card using just one stamp, a bit of golden gel pen, some golden cord and one pearl. Every now and then I get this need to make CAS vintage cards. I love them. They are always beautiful and easy to make.

I used CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge as an inspiration.

I had some creative time :)

Hello, hello! This weekend I had some time to make several cards. I played with some challenges to create this one:

Inspired by: CASE This Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

Our first day in Year 2015

Greetings! It has been a while since my last post. I have several ideas for next couple of blog posts, but during the day I constantly do so many different things and almost never have the time to get to my computer. Anyway, I finally decided to share some photos from our first day of the year. Our friends took us for a walk. Through the forest. Through the snow. It was beautiful.
I can’t wait to get back on that hill again. :)

Time Out Challenge #22

Greetings, my friends! It is time for TO Challenge #22. Many of you already know that I am a small part of this great team and we have fun on a regular basis. Now that I get to know the whole process, I decided to spice it up a bit and bring in some changes into my posts regarding these challenges.
So, for the next several challenges I thought it would be nice to get to know my new friends a bit better. In other words, prior to sharing details about challenge #22, I would like to take a short moment to introduce to you…

Shona Chambers

Shona is from New Zeland and has a lovely blog that I highly recommend: Twine Around. She has a great CAS style, and I decided to share her two cards that recently caught my eye.
DT Card #21 ATS CASology Silver Muse 014
DT card Time Out #20 001
Great work, right? I just love the colors, the clean style and the overall feeling of these two cards. :) You have the chance to visit TO Challenge blog and to check her new card for challenge #22. That one is really stunning!
Now, it is time for you to have some fun too. Check out the rules and our theme for this challenge and create something unique. The theme is ‘Home sweet home’, and the inspirational photo is really beautiful.
I was inspired by the colors and this soft overall feeling of the photo, so I decided to create a birthday card using some Spellbinders Dies, some cord and patterned paper.
I hope you found some inspiration here today. ;)

Time Out Challenge #21

Hello, hello! Are you playing along with us? Are you ready for some fun and inspirational projects? It is time to create and enjoy in Time Out Challenge #21.
I have created my card using several papers (very much distressed papers), some trimmings and my sewing machine.
IMG_4376The sentiment says: All the best! I love how this ended up. I love the colors and the trimmings. Yes, I am quite pleased with this one, and believe me, that is not the case with every card I make. ;)
I hope you like it too, and that you find it inspiring. Now, make sure you visit TO Challenge blog and enjoy some more. ;)

The card is linked at Virginia’s View Challenge.
