cats playing in the snow

this is a card i made for a friend whose cats look like that:
i colored them after photos. to make that card, i used Lawn fawn's pop up box card die set, puffy cloud border die set, forest border die set, Meow you doin' stamp and die set and mama elephant mountain die set. the cats were colored with pencils and promarkers pavot, cardinal reds, pastel pink, ivory, pale yellow, sunflower and spice. the blues are arctic and powder blues. some grey for the tin: pale grey 1 and 3. i added some glitter on the eaten fish and on the candle's fire.
hope you'll like my card

winter ballerina

This is the winter version of my ballerina pop up box. i had made one dancing in Fall leaves, now she is dancing in the snowflakes.
this ballerina is by CAS-ual Fridays stamps (tutu), she was stamps with black versafine, then i added glitter on her tutu and bun flowers. the snowflakes, box and stitched hillsides are from Lawn fawn. the sentiment is by me and says "best wishes". the snowflakes' paper is glittery white by artemio.

challenges entered:
As you like it: Monochrome or rainbow (i generally don't go for black and white cards cause i find the contrast too strong but the idea of this one came to me one day, i thought the black and white would look quite poetic on that design and not too harsh. i hope both colors underline the grace of the dancer and of the snowflakes)
cute card thursday: snowflakes
fabrika fantasy: winter or christmas

anything but a card

today I'm showing something a little different.
i'm a paper crafter but also a frantic knitter. and i particularly love knitting little shoes:
these little addidas were made for my baby girl and i love how she suddenly looked as if she was going for a run ! haha

the pattern is by Phildar. the yarn was bought in my local store...
challenges entered:
as you like it : anything but a card ( i love knitting. Baby shoes make a great gift. they're often quick to knit but can be quite tricky.the hardest part here, was the stripes! i found that it was easier to make them from bottom to top for them to be regular). Knitted trainers is the present people enjoy the most. they look so funny and unusual they really make a memorable gift).
