ric#72 - Hervé Léger

You gotta love the orange colours of autumn. And this dress at RIC's 72nd challenge shows them off perfectly.

So I thought of doing the same:

By the way, it's a thank you card and it has no sentiment outside because you could see it through the vellum leaf, which for personal reasons hasn't been photographed. :-)

Some Sparkles For a Birthday

This card matches its recepients: a playful, bright, brilliant mom and teacher and her brilliant little boy.
(And I love her original American chocolate chip cookie recipe!)

I'm also entering this card into Virginia's View Challenge #9 - All Things Metallic.

Xmas card 2014 #2

This is from the piece where the reindeer came from in my previous post. :) It's really simple, I just put some stickles on certain bulbs of the Christmas trees to make the background more interesting.

Then again, I'm entering this card into Virginia's View Challenge #9 - All Things Metallic.
And I'm not done yet! :-)

I'm also entering this into ric#71 - In Memory of Oscar de la Renta challenge with this dress.

Radio Silence

It's been a bit quiet here for some time (due to tons of work), but I've been also working on our wedding album. I have 7 pages ready, which is about half of the album, so I'm thinking about showing them here very soon.

I'm entering this card into Virginia's View Challenge #8 and the IN(K)SPIRE_me challenge #167.

Because it's "October /And the trees are stripped bare / Of all they wear  / What do I care / October /  And kingdoms rise / And kingdoms fall / But you go on / And on"

Thanks for stopping by.

CASEing The Fantabolous Debby Hughes

OK, I envy the brain of the above mentioned lady and I so wanted to case one of her masterpieces during the month she's the muse of CASE Study. So this is what I came up with for the currents CASE Study Challenge #208.

It's very obvious that this is not an apple. Although I also have some apple chipboards in my stash, it just didn't fit. So I decided to go with the thought of showing you the fading shades of the Indian summer (=autumn) and went with my current favourite colours. By the way, it's a notebook we got at the European Parliament when we went for a visit 2 years ago but I had to personalize it for my own sake. LOL

Hope you like it. :-)

Csabi's Album

In my previous post I promised to show you the matching album I'd made for our little godson's 1st birthday... well, practically I gave it to his mother but I was sure he'd also appreciate it a few years later. :-)

He is so, sooooo cute! I really didn't need to embellish these little pages any more.

I got the album itself as a gift from Scrapfellow. If I remember correctly, I bought the enamel dots, the brown alphabet and patterned papers from them, too. The little detail stamps are from various Lawn Fawn and PaperSmooches sets. I painted the back page with some Martha Stewart acrylic paint. The blue foam letters are from Müller. :-)

And since it's full of patterned papers, I'm linking this one to Virginia's View Challenge #7, too.

Patterned Paper Scraps

This card is a perfect fit for Virginia's View Challenge #7 - Patterned Papers, isn' it? ;-)

I made this card in like 15 minutes from scraps I was too sorry for to throw away. They remained from the mini album I whipped up for our godson's 1st birthday - more on that soon! It accompanies this card as there are only 3 days between our godson's and her mother's (aka my very best friend) birthday.

I really loved these patterned papers and am somewhat sad to run out of them but happy to use so much of them at the same time. :-)
