TIME OUT CHALLENGE #55

Hi everyone! It is time for our TO Challenge #55. I played with my new stamps to create this set of cards.
IMG_5618Our theme is ‘Celebrations with optional twist of die cutting/fussy cutting’ and our sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

I have decided to play a bit and create two different backgrounds with these stamps. It was super fun and relaxing.

I love those stamps that have many different parts so you can use it in so many different ways. If you are here often, you know that I love to make my own patterned papers and these stamps are just perfect for this.
Anyway, you should definitely check out what the rest of our team made, and our very own GD Elizabeth Stewart.

TIME OUT CHALLENGE #54

Hello! I am finally here! Late, but finally here. 🙂 Yes, we have a great inspirational photo for this week. Look at this fun challenge!

Our theme is ‘Home Sweet Home’ and our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers (prize for winner is $15 gift voucher).

I have enjoyed this challenge since I love to cut. Taking a great amount of my dies and different patterned papers, and combining them all together was really fun. I wanted to add some stitching since I love that a lot, but my sewing machine decided it is time to take a rest. A long rest. This time the machine is really done. Somehow I said my goodbye. I know the thing is old and it was recently broken. Then I found out that this type of sewing machine is no longer available in the stores and it can’t be fixed. Anyway, I hope you like it and I hope it will inspire you to crate something fun.

TIME OUT CHALLENGE #48

Greetings, dear friends! Two weeks have passed and it is time for some Time Out at your crafty corner once again. Challenge #48 is ready and we are eager to see your work! Today we will be inspired by one CAS card that is just gorgeous. The card is made by our fellow blogger Marika.

TImeOutMarikaCASEI decided to create something similar using the colours and the sketch.

Time Out Challenge #41

Greetings, dear friends! I hope you enjoyed our previous TO Challenge and that you are ready for a brand new dose of inspiration. Autumn is already here and that is the inspiration for our next challenge. Or to be more precise, we have a quote for you: Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile’ (William Cullum Bryant)
I used this challenge to create a simple card just for him. At the moment, I have only this card in my basket to give or sell, and that means I need to create some more. So, perhaps there will be some more inspiration for you in my Pinterest gallery soon.

Make sure to check out what the rest of the team created. Leave some love on the way hopping around those blogs, and be amazed by the project our dear Glenda (guest designer) made for this challenge.

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.

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.
