Wishing you hugs and kisses

Here is another project I made yesterday. This time a card with a romance/sweet theme for roses on paper using one of my fav Tildas from Magnolia. I also made the card a Christmas one since there are so many challenges out there with a Christmas theme this week. I thought I'd be fresh and see how many I could fit the card into :)

Christmas theme:
papertake weekly
everybody art
charisma cardz
Magnolia down under
2 red bananas
Paper make-up

Red and green colourcombo:
Corrosive challenges by Janet
365 cards
Tellen's place

Other ones:
Paper cutz - anything goes
sketch saturday. - I turned the sketch 90 degrees.

Phew, that was quite some challenges :)

Tip of the day:
I have bought a holder for scrapbookpapers with a couple of compartments where I keep papers and cardstock that are matched together. Sometimes I just feel like colouring so I take out those papers and colour the image so it matches the papers. I then store the image and papers together. Whenever I feel like making cards, but don't have the energy to colour images I take out this holder and look through it to see what I have "half done". It's like having a cardkit ready to go. The only thing is to remember that I have it, lol. I actually almost forgot it. Good thing I didn't since it's Christmas papers and a winter image. On the other hand I just got it so maybe I just need to get used to using it.

Colour: promarkers
Border: spellbinders
Papers: sandylion and daisyd
Text: free download from
Stamp: Magnolia
