Birds in love...

Hello friends, thanks for visiting my blog today!

I just realized that I made another birds' card, but... I love birds!

I hope you had a great week. Today I will show you a new card that I made very quickly, because I had a lot of work on my "part time" job (which sometimes turns into full-time job ...). I used a drawing of a bird that I made some time ago and doubled it, then they became in a couple. While I am drawing I always imagine the story behind my "characters", so this drawing was transformed into a couple of lovers waiting to celebrate Valentine's Day. I used the Mojo Monday sketch and I will also enter it in other challenges, because there are many challenges related to Valentine's Day.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend:)

I love these little birds!

Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog today!

A new card finally! I want to thank those nice ladies who shared their advice on the issue of lack of time. I realized that it is a problem for all of us, even those who are supposed are plenty of time, a nice retired lady:) . Anyway, I will try to adjust my schedule and put more hours on my day (or night…)

These days I have been thinking on Katie and her family. I think she is an incredibly brave girl. I also thought how, thanks to the web, she has been able to feel the affection of so many people that are with her with prayers and words of support. The world was smaller before the web....

Well, now some words about my card. I used the Mojo Monday sketch Challenge and I will enter it in other challenges. I also used a new drawing and I did not sew this card, which is something I do not use to do. I always use my sewing machine! This time I was not in the mood of sewing… Hope you like it!

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year! Thanks for your visit today:)

My first card of 2011! Last year I did not have enough time to devote to my passion for paper, because I have a lot of other activities. This year I hope to spend more time with my wonderful hobby. The issue is where to get the time: fewer hours to the family? or working hours? or sleeping hours? I would love to know how do you do with this lack of time. Nevertheless it is one of my New Year’s resolutions:)

I made this card with the Mojo Monday Sketch with a new drawing I did recently and I will take the opportunity to enter it in other challenges.

Card supplies:
Image © of EdithDesigns (me!), Bazzill cardstock, German metallic cardstock, miscellaneous designer paper, Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder, Duncan Snow Glitter paint, New Collection pink rhinestones, brown thread and my sewing machine.
