Curtain Call friendship card & farewell Ireland

Hello sweethearts! I can't begin to tell you how I wish I could pop in more often!...
I'm getting really itchy to lay my hands on all my yummy craft suppies, that faithfully wait for me at home, and I'm pretty sure that the very first moment that we come back and I'll have a minute to spare, that's what I'm going to do! Yeah... *evil grin*
For now, we're still having a full week to spend in Europe, and later today we're leaving my hubby's family in Ireland, and heading over to Isle Of Man, where my sister lives. I haven't seen her for four years, not to mention that I haven't yet met her 2yo daughter! I'm all happy and excited :)

Here's what we're leaving behind... some of the most serene landscapes that I've ever seen. It's such a beautiful country!



I'm not here today only to show you the photos, though. It's my uttermost pleasure, to take part in another fabulous Curtain Call Color Challenge {ACT 37}! You're going to love the bright & fun mix of colours, that our super talented Stacey prepared for us this week:


Don't you just want to devour these cupcakes? They're there for a purpose, which is...
our dear Stacey's birthday!!!
Hooray!! Hoppy burp-day my friend, hope you'll have a BLAST! :D
I hope you'll take the time to hop over to Stacey's blog, and wish her all the best.

I went for a dimensional look on my card. More dimension is something that I definitely want to pursue more often, once back home. Oh, and polka dots... you can never have enough of them *wink wink*


Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: DCWV, My Mind's Eye; stamp: Stampin' Up! (Season Of Friendship); ink: ColorBox (Pink), Versa Color (Bark, Umber, Lagoon Blue); border punch: EK Success; other: button, string, brad, burlap

I hope you'll take time to play along with us! Post your Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 33 creation using Mr. Linky at Stacey's Stamping Stage.

I'll be signing off now, it's been a long and tiring day and I desperadely need a rest. Do come back tomorrow though, as I'll be sharing my Monday creation for Really Reasonable Ribbon :)
Let me finish with a cheerful accent, too. Here's a photo of Chuplet taken back in Poland, two weeks ago. She loves to look at herself in the mirror!


Have a wonderful, restful Sunday! *hugs*


  1. Love the pictures you took - such amazing flowers and fields. Some day I hope to get to Ireland.

    We used the same set for our card!! Love your take on this week's colours and how you added the sentiments. As for the polka dots - I'm with you!! Can never have enough :D Enjoy your visit with our sister!

  2. Gorgeous photos, both of Ireland and your little cutie! Your card is just delightful! I love the bit of burlap peeking out and those big scallops. Enjoy the next stage of your trip!

  3. Oooh so pretty! Love this image and the grid DSP behind with the scallop edge if just GORGEOUS!

  4. Iwona for some reason I thought you made it home already...but here you are in beautiful Ireland...LOL!!! The photos are so pretty and check out your little princess!!! She is getting cuter every minute :)!!!

    Your card is so sweet and beautiful!!! Love the pink flowers and the fun bright bird!!!

    BTW ~ yes I did get your gorgeous Flourishes card!!! Thank you again!!! I thought I'd e-mailed you that I did...??? Regardless I just had it in my hand the other day and I still keep admiring it :)!!! Travel safe and we'll take soon!!! Hugs ~S~

  5. Fabulous card!! I love that embossed scalloped edge, and the stamped tree & flowers are awesome! Loving all the dimension!!


  6. Look at all those beautiful wildflowers... and your card is fabulous, as always. :) I LOVE your border punch - I'm sure mine is going to get LOTS of use. :)

  7. Gorgeous card Chupa! And what lovely photos! Although I can't imagine being that far away from my family. I'm so glad you are getting to see them all!

  8. Where have you been hiding this set??? I will be adding that one to my list of ones to borrow when you return!!!!!!! You have done an amazing job with this one, I love all the dots, and totally agree you can never have too many of them!! Thanks for your ribbon tips, will be giving all the tips a go on the next one- but may try a satin ribbon instead! I am loving all the photos you have been posting, the scenery is absolutely beautiful and you little cherub is just too cute! Safe trip home! :)

  9. Sweet little Chuplet, such a cute photo. It's great to capture those little habits they have as little ones. My son had a thing for pretending to talk on the phone. I must I laugh a lot while I'm on the phone because he would jabber then let out a belly laugh!

    I love how you "framed" your image with the scallops. I love this set but sometimes struggle with this large image. You rocked it!

  10. What a cute card Chupa! I love it all!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
