Hello from Europe!

I had an awfully long and exhausting trip (Chuplet decided that she doesn't sleep on the plane, and does some good ole' crying instead... imagine 2o+ hours of surviving this!), but we're finally in England, and fully recovered :)
I suppose it's time to share some recent DT work with you! Here we go...

Firstly, I've got an OCC sketch (OCCSC17) - last one for the time being, unfortunately... I didn't have time enough, to prepare any more. What a shame... :/

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, Bazzill, Stampin' Up!; paper: October Afternoon; stamp: Stampendous; inks: various from ColorBox, Versa Color, Vivid!; rub-on (sentiment): Wendy Irving; decorative scissors: Birch Craft; black pen; other: buttons, ribbon

We're also having a new sketch at Card Patterns. We've been fortunate to be able to work with images from Little Paper Shop who is sponsoring us this week.

Right-o! I'm sorry for a quick post, folks... We've got limited time to spend with my hubby's family, before we head over to Poland, so I don't want to sit in front of the compy foor too long, especially today. I'm so glad to have you visiting, I'll be back tomorrow with my card for the Curtain Call card! Have a lovely day...

  6. Darling cards, Chupa! Love them all :D Bees are too cute, rocking horse bring back great memories, and I love the out of the box image on the last one and all the buttons along the bottom.

    Glad to hear you made it through the first leg of the trip. A few things that helped me when I traveled with my young kids: Take off and landings are worst. If you can give them a bottle to drink from, or a little something to chew on, or a passifier to suck on it helps break up the pressure in their little ears. I have also stooped to a little baby Gravol to knock them out for part of the trip if it is a long one. Some parents have been rather upset with me for doing that, but I found it helped everyone's nerves (especially mine and those of others on the plane!) and we all arrived at our destination much happier :D Enjoy your visit in England :D

  7. To dobrze, że jakoś udało Wam się przetrwać podróż. Dla takiego maluszka to nie było łatwe z pewnością.
    Kartki piękne, jak zwykle. Najbardziej spodobała mi się pierwsza - te kolory, jak słoneczko:)

  8. Kartki jak zawsze - po prostu piękne. Ale piękniejszą dla mnie sprawą jest świadomość, że lada dzień przytulę w końcu moją cudną wnuczkę, no i będę miała Was wszystkich blisko. Tak się cieszę! Pozdrowienia dla rodziny. Rodzice chyba też już przyjechali. Buziaki.

  18. I always enjoy checking out your site. You always have a unique way of designing a card with not obvious color choices that look amazing! I loved seeing your sample using the Stampendous "Bee Trio" as I have been working for them for the last eight years as a sample artist. It's fun to see what someone else does for a change!
