Something new for me…

FLowersHello and thank you for stopping by today! Hope everything is going well with all of you!

I wanted to play with Fresh Batch Sketch Challenge this week and here is what I came up with. Can you tell I tried something new for myself ? Pleated paper!  It is one of the techniques that I like to see on other cards made by other crafters. The other reason for making these folds is a stamp I used (stamp set from Our Craft Lounge) – these cute little flowerpots are thimbles, thimbles that we often use in sewing. Pleats, thimbles, ribbons – all sewing related… And when I looked at this card after I finished it I thought that it looks like the flowers are standing on the window sill with a curtain under it as a decoration. What do you think?

Thank you to Mercy and all DT for the inspiration, without this challenge I maybe would never try to make this card.

KukuruzkaBefore I would say the last word I wanted to share a very pretty card that I got yesterday from a very wonderful person Irina (i-m-kukuruzka). We almost lost hope that I would find her card in my mail box, but it made through the ocean! Thank you so much Irina!!! I was very glad to receive it!!!

Thank you for stopping by today and sharing some time with me!

Enjoy your day today!


Здравствуйте! Сегодня мне бы хотелось показать вам не только свою открытку, но и замечатльный подарок от  Ирочки (i-m-kukuruzka). Открытка эта была очень долгожданной, и потому мне было особенно приятно вчера найти ее в почтовом ящике. Спасибо большое Ирочка за теплые и сердечные слова и пожелания и очень красивую открытку!

Спасибо, что разделили со мной мою радость! Всего Вам Доброго,

    Всем здрям! Сегодня отмечаю вторую годовщину ведение своего блога. На поздравления не напрашиваюсь, хотелось бы узнать у автора и возможно у комментирующих: а какое время вы ведёте свой ресурс?
    Честно говоря, были сложные моменты, когда посещали мысли бросить это дело. Сначала из-за вылета из индекса ПС Яндекс, позже – из-за отсутствия времени. Но спустя какое то время начинаешь понимать, что иногда полезно выложить на лист (в данном случае на веб страницу 🙂 свои мысли, поделиться чем-то интересным со своими читателями. Автору сего ресурса хотелось бы пожелать, чтоб вдохновение на новые посты никогда не покидало! Удачи…
