Cuttlebug Challenge: Glitter!!!

Good evening girls!
I'm here to enter a card for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot: Glitter!
I embossed my patterned paper on the wrong side but finally found it was great looking neverthless, as I guess negative embossing is cool too! lol
Here it is:

I used papers and little girl die-cut from Colorful Christmas Collection by My Mind's Eye. The glittery snoflake and tree are from a free gift I received with my PaperCraft Inspirations mag last year if I remember well!

First Card for Christmas 2009

I take few minutes to share with you a very simple card:

Very simple because no embossing, no stamping: its a sticker!
I love to use some when I'm late with my cardmaking and its, in my opinion, as cute as a stamped image. Little pricking and Dew Drop, TADA!!!!

Again this time, another great sketch to follow, so inspiring!
Its an honor to be the Guest Designer, really!
I made a card with autumn in mind... Hard not to think about it with all the leaves falling from the trees and the wind blowing them everywhere!
But first, the sketch:

And here's my card:

This time, no stamps, just stickers: leaves, walnut and the squirrel. Patterned paper from The Paper Studio, some leaves brads, ribbon, words are from clear stamps set from Magenta (Did I told you I love those stamps? lol) and felt border wich I really love. You can find some here! :o)
The leaves in the corner are sticked on acetate and I added some pop dots to have a 3D effect. I love the result.

Wind of changes...

Thats what September brings to me!

Here's the explanation:
Its not a secret for anyone: I LOVE cardmaking...
Its not a secret either: I LOVE stamps! I have more than 1000, I stopped counting...
I discovered this year that I really love drawing card sketch and love to present challenge on forum pop-Art...
I am a SAHM by choice and I needed a work at home.

You put all of this together and TADA! Here I am!
I now have my own Online Store Ah! La Carte... La Boutique for all cardmakers lovers! You'll find cool stuff for your cardmaking!
I call that a dream coming true!
Its been some time since I thought about that project and then, now, its real!
I'm also working on a blog exclusively for the boutique to promote it all! Of course its in french... my daily language...
So I'm still working hard to have it all done! I am still doing cards as always but sell them all before I have time to put some on Etsy...
Wind of change? Yes and its windy for sure!!!!!

Quick Post, Quick Card #10

Hi!!! I'm taking few minutes before cooking to share with you a card I made last week. Its an easy one!

I soooo love the Penny Black clear stamps set!!!! This stamped image come from the "Hugs" set. I colored it with my Prismacolors. Patterned paper (from Dollar Store!), ribbon, Prima flowers, little brad and a ladybug charm goes well together I think!
