Weeks pass so quickly, I always hope to do a few challenges but then suddenly it's Friday already and I stop. There is always another week. But I always try to do the sketch on 2s4y. And I made it this week. The picture isn't perfect because it's already dark here but I'll take a new picture tomorrow. I decided to stay with cupcakes. I like cupcakes a lot. And DT members, thanks for sharing your fantastic work the last few months. It was a pleasure to watch your cards every week.

This is my card for this week's challenge. A sketch by Becky Fleck. I really liked the sketch. I embossed the background and the balloons. The text is cut using the Cuttlebug typewriter alphabet. I only got that one yesterday.

Dit is in ieder geval mijn kaart geworden. Maar weer het papier van BG gepakt. Het hartje en LOVE heb ik met de Cricut uitgesneden. Doodlecharms en Jasmine cartridge.
Another card. This time for Sheetload of Cards. I always look at the PDF file every month but this is the first time I actually made a card. I used BG paper. I love this line. I bought the 6x6 paper pack. Ideal for cards. I used my Cricut for the scalloped heart and the word LOVE. The Doodlecharms and Jasmine cartridge.

My card for this week is #91. I really like this sketch. I had to wait for a card kit to arrive and I couldn't start before today. I had it all in my head so I just had to make it. The pink circle is felt and the chipboard hearts are covered in DP. The little heart is inked and I then put some glossy accents on it.

It has been some time (about 6 months) that I made a LO. But I bought this DP last week and I just knew the picture I wanted to use. The picture is of my son Tom, about 6 months old, he is 9 now. I put the journaling on a tag behind the picture. I sometimes have trouble with the placement of journaling and I really like this solution. The title reads "backwards", Tom crawled backwards untill he got stuck beneath a chair one day.

Another card done for this week. For the sketch on 2s4y. Laura's turn again this week. Very versatile sketch. I used BG again and my threading water punch, love that punch.

Ik heb nog een blog ontdekt waar je de cuttlebug voor nodig hebt. The Cuttlebug Spot. Deze week hebben ze als thema "een hart" ergens op je kaart. De kaart die ik gemaakt heb past prima in dat thema.
This is my take on this week's sketch on CPS. I thougth 'grommets' when I saw the sketch and so I used them. I think it's the first time I did use them. The red cardstock is the actual card. I gave it to my husband, he needs a lot of love and affection at the moment. (see this post).
I found a new challenge blog. The cuttlebug spot, and this card fits within their challenge this week. Use hearts on your card. So I will post this card there too.

We had a beautiful start of the year. We have been able to skate for almost 2 weeks now. We also had some fog and that together with the freezing temperatures transformed the world to a real winter wonderland. The bottom picture is the view from our living room and the top picture is of a weeping willow around the corner of the street.

Every week I want to participate in the Cuttlebug challenges and every week something comes up and then it's Wednesday again. But I succeded this week. I do think I created a simple white card;) but it's so fun to work with the Cuttlebug.
I couldn't take a decent picture of my card.

My take on the bonus sketch by Peet, one of the winter DT members on 2s4y.
My take for the challenge on Tag You're it! The calender stamp I got for my birthday (December 31st). The challenge was "new stash challenge".

I try to make cards for a couple of challenges every week but somehow there are not enough hours in the day and I'm nog the fastest worker. But this is my take on Becky Fleck's sketch over on Caardvarks. I used some leftover paper from another card I made this week. One of my resolutions this year is to use scraps:) instead of buying new paper all the time.

I like the CPS card sketches but haven't always time to participate in them. I did have time this week and here is my card. I made a card and altered an egg carton (see link in Dutch part) for a collegue who went on maturnity leave and now that she had the baby I made a card for her using the same paper.
