* Music *

Over at Kenny K's the new stamps are out and believe me they are awesome. They all revolve around music, as does there challenge of this week. I couldn't help it, I had to buy one of those super duper stamps and use it for the challenge. Besides I love the theme, I am crazy about music, cannot live without it!
I also combined it with this weeks challenge of Card Patterns (I turned the sketch)
The papers I used are from Very Merry - October Afternoons winter paper line of last year. Thought it would fit nicely because of the music paper.
Supplies: White& red cardstock, Very Merry October Afternoon papers, fiskars borderpunch, scalloped scissors, text digi from Create with TLC, digi from Kenny K, buttons, Prima Marketing Swirl, Derwent pencils.

* Halloween * Birthday boy *

This card was created for Dutch Card Lovers, which had a great new sketch this week. It has been far too long ago since I played along with them and I thought it would be a good opportunity to combine the sketch with a great challenge over at the Doodle Diva's blog from Karens Doodles. You get this great freebie and one of the things you have to do is create a card with it. How hard can it be? I love the digi's from Karen and this freebie is no exception. I dug into my stash and found some old Basic Grey - still one of my fav brands even though I don't use it too often these days, might need to change that ;) - and some black cardstock. Sat down my old pc and created some text to go with it. Supplies: white & black cardstock, Basic Grey Ambrosia papers, ribbon, buttons, fiskars borderpunch, Karen Doodle's digi stamp, my own word art.

The next card is for Card Patterns - I always love there sketches. Again this one was a very basic one, but it was just perfect for the birthday card I had to create for my Nephew. Due to the busy patterns & colors, it's great to have a more simple sketch. The digi is from Sliekje. She is a great artist and her stamps are too darn cute. The papers are from provocraft - again some oldies from my stash, I don't remember how the series was called though. Plus I used again my very first bought borderpunch!
Supplies: White, orange & green cardstock, Provocraft papers, blue ribbon, Fiskars borderpunch, image digi from Sliekje, text digi from Pollycraft.
Enjoy the rest of the sunday & have a nice week!

* more christmast cards *

And again I am too late to upload my card based on Get Sketchy's sketch #49... I only finished it last evening and didn't have time to upload until now. ah well, I like my card any way. It's my first attempt at vintage style with printed pictures, and I think it's not too bad. I used the old BG line Wassail. Almost ashamed to say, but can you believe I have it lying here for ages already and have never made a project with it!!! Any way, I like it with the old fashioned pictures of santa and angels. I think there will follow more :)
Supplies: white cardstock, Basic Grey Wassail papers, vintage picture from the Internet, red and green ribbon, my own wordart.

Next is also vintage style with a more modern look for Card Patterns sketch. Already nr. 75! again a great sketch to work with.
Supplies: White and pink cardstock, October Afternoon papers, vintage picture from the internet, pink ribbon, white organza ribbon, pin, my own wordart, Fiskars borderpunch.
Enjoy your weekend!
