Purple card with rocking horse

After some days in bed with a bad cold,
I feel a little bit better today,
so I thought I would try to make a card.
Amazing how rapid the strength disappears!
Well, this is the card, - and perhaps I'd better go to bed again.

I used:
"Papeteria" square card, white;
Purple and white papers;
White and purple scrap papers for the corners and the stars.
Image: Beccy;
Dies: Scalloped circle (Lifetime), corners (La-La Land);
Stars: Leftovers from a border punch (Artoz);
Purple ink and purple pen.

Today I'll show something that I have knitted
during the last months.
In German we say "Waschlappen",
in Norwegian we call them "Vaskekluter",
and in English I think they are called "Washcloths".
They are knitted in 100% cotton
and have different patterns
made by the Norwegian designer Bitta Mikkelborg.
And because the challenge "Craft Your Passion Challenge"
says: "Any handcrafted items are welcome...",
I decide to show my knit work there.

CAS Autumn Tags

Today I want to show two CAS autumn tags
which I made with my new Dylusions sprays

But I like it. Not the messy fingers, but the result.

I used:
White card stock;
Nellie Snellen tag dies;
Dylusion Sprays;
Memory Box "Garden Falling Maple" stencil;
VersaColor ink "54 Brown".

Spray and Ghosting

Wow! I have tried something new!
Last week I bought some craft goodies
from my favorite store in Zürich.
And on Saturday it was warm enough to sit on the balcony
with the wonderful autumn colours
from Dylusions Ink Spray.
I have never used sprays before,
and because I did not know how far the sprays would reach,
I did not want to do it inside of my room.
I had great fun!
However I did not take care of my fingers,
and as I was playing the guitar in Church on Sunday,
I think the congregation wondered
about the red fingertips.
Here is my first card with spray and ghosting.
In real the colours are warmer than they are on the photo.

I used:
"Papeteria" A6 double card warm yellow;
Olive scrap paper;
Dylusions: Squeezed Orange, Lemon Zest and Postbox Red;
Memory Box "Garden Falling Maple" stencil (for the ghosting);
Marianne Design Swirl die;
Stamp: Stempel Art;
Brown pen for the edges.

Vielen Dank! / Thank you

I love this "Sweet peas" image from Beccy.
Today I used it for a "Thank You" card.
On the photo it not quite easy to see
the heat embossed sentiment "Vielen Dank",
but on the card itself it looks better.

White and purple card stock;
Image: "Sweet peas", Beccy;
Frame: Spellbinders die;
Stamp: Rico Design;
Embossing powder, "Silver": Rayher;

Usually I don't like witches.
But this one seems so friendly,
so I decided to use her on this Halloween card.
She is the October image over at Beccy's Place,
and I think I also lifted Beccy's card a little bit.
At least Beccy inspired me to make this card just like this.

I used:
"Papeteria" A6 double card, white;
Purple card stock for the mat;
Beccy's "Little Witch Digital Paper";
White and black scrap papers/snippets;
Image: Beccy's "Little Witch";
