Super Sketchy Sunday again on 365 Cards. Day 111's sketch was nice and simple.

I really had fun making this. It'll go to a swap bot member who likes pink (in case it wasn't obvious:-) ).
Here are some cards I've done lately for swapbot and following 365Cards challenges.

There was a film theme that week on 365 Cards. That means every day the designer put up a movie poster and we had to make a card related to that specific poster.

For Day 106 they had this poster.

I used a little girl stamp on my card to match the girls on the poster and then I used a multicolour background specially concentrating on green. I am quite happy with the outcome.

This card also participated in:
Stamping With Dragon
Paper Sundaes


For Day 110 we had to make a card inspired from this poster.

My idea was to make something simple and childish so that's why the cute turtle.

On Day 108 we had this poster to work with:

And I came up with...

I'm bursting with desire to make cards at the moment. I singed up for 10 swaps on swap-bot. A real mad period of creation after a looooong brake.

I made this card for Super Sketchy Sunday Day 104 on 365Cards and I'll send it to a swap-bot member for an handmade card exchange.

When I was in Vietnam for my honeymoon I saw bamboo for the first time in real life. It was growing everywhere, from woods to peoples gardens and road side.
They are using it in constructions.

It so was exciting to be there. There were so many flowers, trees, plants that I haven't seen them before (that was my first time in Asia). My whole month in there was an adventure discovering new plants everyday and being amazed by everything.

The two most unexpected trees that I discovered were the banana and the coffee tree.

Banana tree had the most unusual flower. It was totally unexpected and hard for me to imagine the bananas coming out from that dark red flower.

The coffee tree.... well.... if someone wouldn't have told me that was a coffee tree I would have never guessed. The flowers had an amazing strong smell and the coffee beans tasted nothing like coffee. Apparently the beans get the yummy taste after being dried and roasted.

This is another vintage card that I made for a swap-bot swap.

For this swap I had to send a postcard with a flower on it. The person I had to send to stated on her profile that she totally adores stuff with Eiffel Tower so I made this specially for her. I hope she'll like it.

I made this card for a swap-bot. The person I had to send it stated that she likes vintage looks. So I made this using some paper that came with a wicked craft magazine that I bought few weeks ago from Manchester.

The rose was inspired my from DayDreams blog.


You can see a tutorial of the rose here.

92/365 - Flower card

I made this card for a swap-bot exchange. I love flowers and this was really fun to make and it's one of my favourite.

After I made I was wondering on one of the sites that I regularly check, 365 cards, and saw that my card it's perfect for one of their challenge Lucky 13.

For this challenge we had to have exactly 13 of the same item on our card. I looked at my card and realised that "Happy Birthday" has exactly 13 letters.
