Fairy Snow - Christmas in July

Only five months until christmas! These months will probably fly, so I better get started on the christmas cards :) Felt like doing some real distressing today, it's been less of that lately. And I played with glimmer mist again. Always fun, but a bit hard to capture on photos.

The stamp is Fairy Snow. I'm kind of happy about how she turned out. Pink is really a great color for winter and christmas, and I think I will use it more often. Not sure where the sentiments are from, but papers by Melissa Frances and MME (Signature Life), a page from an old book, felt snowflakes by Little Yellow Bicycle

Coloring: Inktense pencils by Derwent mixed with water

Thanks for visiting! :o)

Fairy Kitty

Ever had metal roofing on your house? This old house got a metal roof some years ago, and it's cold in the winter, and too hot in the summer, and it gets really green of moss and dirt. But the one good thing about it is that when it rains, it's very, very cozy upstairs in my room. I guess I'm more creative when the rain is pouring down on my metal roof, so loudly that I can hardly hear myself think.

And that's why I spent today making cards too. And even though I might own somewhere about a million fairly new papers, it gives me some satisfaction to use my very old stuff. So I found this 6x6 paperpad from K&Company (I've had it laying around since the beginning of time I think), and I managed to use some of them for the very first time.

Oh, and the stamp is Fairy Kitty (by PapilioStamps. Surprised?) It's my first card with this stamp. I think Kitty loves her kitten as much as we love our little cat. Our cat is a year old these days, and her name is Silke (Silk). She's the cutest, kindest, best cat ever :)

Thanks for visiting! :o)

Sail away...

Yeah... wish I was gettin' ready to sail away. Sail away to a place where the sun always shines. But then... how on earth would I manage to fit all my craft supplies in a tiny sailboat?

But this little fellow (or is it a girl? Your choice...) is Ready to Sail.

Not too happy about how this card turned out, but as long as we're creating and having fun, who cares?

Thanks for visiting! :o)

Maya doesn't mind some rain.

Heavy rain today, and no weather for Boop to go swimming. But Maya doesn't care about some rain. -So what? she says. -You'll get wet anyway.

But she didn't expect this, did she? Moahaha, I'd rather spend the day in the craftroom, than having to deal with an octopus on my head.

Hope you all are enjoying summer, and I do hope you all have better weather than we have :)
