A little Angel told me...

... that Christmas is in less than 2 months!!!
(sorry for my english don't even sure I can say it like this! lol)
So its Christmas cards season! I made several cards yet and I'll try to show you one or two by week until Christmas. If I have time to show you more then thats cool but you know I'm not often online so 1 or 2 seems Ok for me! :o)

The first one is a little Angel, yeah, its the one who told me about Christmas...

I choose patterned paper from Rusty Pickle, Angel 3D sticker mounted on cardstock and used my Nestabilities Classic Ovals by Spellbinders.

Any characters with cute smile like this: I just can't resist! And I have to confess I fell in love easily with cute snowman and penguin, oh and gingerbread man and polar bear... lol
So be back often if you wanna see some cute little face on my cards!

Etsy is a great place to sell handmade things but I have to confess its hard to find the first buyer... I know I must put more and more cards in my shop but life is keeping me busy in so much ways... But I know I will make it one day!!!

Diary Project 2009 by Fantazya... All Ready for the New Year!

Remember the Diary 2009 Project by Fantazya? I had it in my hands since few weeks now and took me a while to decide how to decorate it! But one thing for sure: I absolutely LOVE it! Can't wait to visit each crafter web page and, why not, do some shopping!
Let me show you some pics:

I choose to put on the cover of my diary my fav paper of the moment (I told you!) from K and Company. I put flowers and velvet brad, some glitter numbers and ribbon. I also made a little bookmark with the same paper, ribbon and some flowers and gems.

You can see on the picture my first page for the diary. Well, took me a while to do all the doodling for this! Looks good, I'm proud of it! :o) My second page is great too but I couldn't take a good picture of it... It looks like I put nothing on the page!!! LOL But I did! There are big flowers all around the page. I'll try to take a better pic soon!

Its all for now! Still working on some christmas cards and also on stuff for my daughter's 10 birthday: A High School Musical 3 theme party! Will show you!!!
Have a good day!!!!!

Some cards to share...

As winter is near (yes, it is...) I need to work a lot in the garden to get everything ready for the snow. Last year we had our first big snowstorm on november 22...! So working outside mean less time in my scraproom!
I wanted to share with you today two birthday cards I made.

The first one is made with a paper I really love (you'll see it often within the next few days on my blog...) its a paper from K and Company from one of their Paper Organizer Set. I used my Stylized Flowers embossing folder from Cuttlebug with white cardstock. Also, the simple flower sticker is mounted on cardstock cut with my Nestabilities Die Cut from SpellBinders, both inked with Cats Eye Charcoal Chalk Inkpad. I added ribbon and plastic dots. I'm in love with Cuttlebug Embossing folders... aww not so long ago I used to emboss my design manually and it could take a long time to have a perfect image...

The second card is very simple. I used a K and Company patterned paper from the same collection as the first card. I simply cut 3 rectangles and matted them on kaki cardstock. I used my scalloped punch with the same kaki cardstock, added a little circle from the patterned paper and finally stick a silver butterfly embellishment. Oh! and inked everything with brown Cat's Eye Ink Pad. For sure you see a greeting in french as english is not my primary language...
So thats it for today! I will come back to show you something else made with my favorite paper soon! And also I made some christmas cards too!

Sometime, we need just a little thing...

A little thing to give you a go!

Let me try to explain with my poor english:
Sometimes I feel its hard to keep on writing my blog because I feel nobody really read it...
Comments give a direct feedback from readers and even if I shouldn't say people are not reading because I don't have lots of comments, its sad not knowing if there is regular visitors or not...

All that to say I had a surprise to see someone put my blog on her Newly Discovered Blogs post!!! Thats enough for me to keep on writing and showing my stuff! Yeah, I have a lack of confidence.... (thats the right expression???)

So thanks Allison, very much appreciated!!!
Oh and, dear readers, thanks for being here!

ps don't forget to look at the fab creations by Allyson!
