Sketch #14 at CCWS

Time for a new sketch challenge at Christmas Challenges with Sketches! This week it's Wilma who made a daring sketch for you girls! It was fun to play with so many layers and colors. I was working completly outside my comfertzone with the papers that I used!!  And with all the busy work for the upcoming training I didn't find a good mojo and feeling while making this card. So it's not the way you are used from me... but I hope you forgive me.... 

See what I mean? But the sketch is amazing and you can find it at the Blog HERE.
This time the sponsor is Michelle Perkett Studio
She is offerering a stamp by choice for the winner.

This card is into the following challenges:
Daisy Doodles: Christmas plus use a digi
Digital Tuesday: sparkle and shine

See you at the CCWS challenge blog!

Cute review at All That Scraps

Here is another day that we are reviewing the new November stamps that were released this month at All That Scraps! For today I choose to work with this lovely snowlady from Sweet November. She is called 
Adorn D. Yard. She and the little mouse at the ground are so cute and lovely!
I loved to play with the shades in her hat.

Colored with my copic Markers

Christmas in Style

When I look outside the world is completly closed by the huge mist. It's almost a week that it's hanging here... looking out my window.. there is no world... no birds that give a little tweet... nothing..
When going outside it's cold, wet and chilly... all the more reason to stay inside and craft and have some fun with stamps and ink again!

Embossed with Red Sparkling Wow Embossing powder
Text Stamp by Just Rite
Papers from old stash

I just love the classic style this card has.....

I enter this card in a special challenge that is set up with great prizes from Chocolate Baroque HERE

My assistance Dog Sjors

Well... I think I wrote a hundred times here that time flies!!! And somehow.. it just does.... giggle.
I'm preparing for my week of training with the assistance dog that I'm going to get after that week.

Here is a sneak peak of Sjors.

It's a big pleasure now to know that I will have such a handsome guy at home helping me out with all kind of stuff that I almost can't do myself. Can you believe that he is considering it playing? Amazing what!!!

It took me some time to get used to the fact that I'm going to get a dog.. need to study a lot before I go for training... and when he comes home with me.. I still need to learn a lot.. and he too...

But for now... I'm excited and happy....

Will be continued!

Einde Hobbystempels

Wel pot vol blommen!!!

Excuus voor de de woorden hierboven.... maar wat een vreselijk bericht is er vandaag de lucht in gegaan!!!

Ik ben vanmorgen gebeld door Marga van Hobbystempels... en inmiddels is ook de nieuwsbrief rondgestuurd...

Na veel overwegingen hebben Marga en John besloten de stekker uit de webwinkel Hobbystempels te trekken. En dat vind ik zo erg. Ze hebben een kleine webwinkel met een berg grote diversiteit aan  mooie stempels!!!

Wat balen dat dit nu moet gebeuren... twee mensen met zoveel hart en ziel in hun webwinkel....
Ik zal het samenwerken met hun, als design team lid, maar vooral met hun als mens en vrienden heel erg gaan missen.

Op dit moment is er een hele grote LEEG VERKOOP begonnen in de webwinkel van 


Lieve Marga en John, dank jullie wel voor de tijd dat ik deel mocht zijn van jullie team. En vooral nu
heel veel sterkte met het verdriet en afscheid van jullie mooi winkel!

Met verdrietig hart maar met heel veel liefde en warmte voor jullie.....

Second preview day on new stamps by All That Scraps.

I know... it's just the beginning of November... but I remember what a rush it was these last two months of the year... needed some extra cards and didn't had them ready! Well I can tell you.. it ain't gonna happen to me this year! LOL... I have plenty ready... but then Christine from All That Scraps made some brand new ones again... so I gave myself the excuse to make more Christmas Cards (so I'm sure I'm not without this year!
And they are sooooo cute and fun! 

Here is another preview with one of the fantastic stamps that will be in store from November 4th! 
This is C.C. Design Through the Night and I decided to make a gift package with her. The fun thing is that after the inside is all eaten.. you can add a little electric flame in it and it will be a decoration for you home!

C.C. Design Through the Night in New November stamps and dies!

I stamped her on Craft Cardstock and colored her with my pencils.

Please go check out the blog and see what all the other girls made as example for you.
