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.

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.

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

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.

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.
