LLWWC #25 – No Designer Paper

Hello! Today is Wednesday and it means it’s time for the La-La Land Weekly Challenge! Lisa is our host for this challenge, and she asked us to create a “No Designer Paper” card, only cardstock and embellishments. What? No DP? That was my first reaction. Of course I will not lie to you – I was in a big panic. I am neither a creative nor a talented crafter… I spent several hours over the weekend visiting the gorgeous blogs of Silke Ledlow and Jeanne Streiff. Wow! These girls are so great with no DP cards! Okay, I made a card, so please bear with me… And I would like to thank you Lisa for the opportunity to try something new.

LLWWC #25 - Cupid Maya

Here it is – Cupid Maya who is ready to send a love arrow and maybe somebody will fall in … Love! For the layout I followed once again Mercy’s sketch! She always saves me with her awesome sketches! Thank you Mercy!

I think that I can enter a Valentine Challenge at Crazy4Challenges blog this time. This Cupid Maya is perfect not only for Valentine’s day but also can be great for an Anniversary card.

Are you ready to create a card with no DP? I don’t know if my card is a good inspiration, but you sure need to look at our DT samples – Kim, Kristine, Pam, Jane, Lisa. Maureen, Cheryl, and Kathy! Wow! These Girls always have real eye candy for you! And if you would like to participate in this challenge don’t forget to include your card in the Mr.Linky box at La-La Land. We are so excited to see your creations!

Before I would tell you good-bye I just wanted to leave a personal note. You may notice that I don’t post so often… Looks like my imagination took a vacation and is spending time somewhere in the south, and left me in a cold WI winter. But I hope that one day it will be back and I will be posting more often. For now I just wanted to tell you, that I am really sorry for disappointing you.

See you soon this week. I have couple of exciting posts coming!

Inky hugs and sentimental smiles,
