No Toppings at Seize the Birthday!

Hi there!

Yes, this week anything BIRTHDAY related goes at Seize the birthday !!!

Here's my card to invite and inspire you to play along:

I used some scraps and a very old postage stamp punch to create my background, and a postage mark stamp I've had forever!

The sentiment is new however, and I will share it with you:

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Time for new sketch inspiration at CAS(E) this sketch !

Hi there!

Anybody out there following the cricket world cup with me?!

So excited that South-Africa just won against Sri Lanka and we are now through to the semi finals!

On to my card for today...

This was the first time I experimented with my Silhouette sketch pens and oh boy... it really is so much fun. Perfect for those cutting files with too many intricate detail to make a clean cut!

I just added a few tiny pearls to finish off my design.

I am linking my card to the following challenges:

The paper players  ~ CAS florals

Casology ~ Blossom


Thanks so much for visiting me today!

ps... this is my last 'live' post for a couple of weeks... I am taking a blogging break... take care... see you all later!

Emoticon inspired

Hi there!

A dreary, windy day here in Abu Dhabi... I almost feel sandblasted after my early morning walk!

The card I want to share today was inspired by the little green face emoticon on Facebook telling friends that (s)he is feeling sick ;)

The word 'feeling' ( font : Cursif  ) was cut 3 times with my Silhouette, and layered for a bit of weight.

The face replacing the dot of the question mark  is the letter H of the ' faces '  font.

The ' not well ' is the font IMPACT LABEL.

Very QACAS card today for the GREEN challenge at Addicted to Cas.

Zebra thanks!

Hi there!

You won't see animals too often featured on my cards... yes I know butterflies and birds are animals too, you will see a lot of them, but seldom the four legged ones!

No four legs on today's card either... but the one who wears this coat, do have 4 legs!

A little peek at the stencilling (and masking) process...

 I LOVE the aha moment when you remove the stencil! { stencil was cut with my Silhouette }

I used a sentiment from the wonderful words set by Casual fridays.

A really quick one layer card for the ANIMAL challenge at Less is more this week.

Thanks for looking... have a nice day
