We are also very pleased to have Alex, Catherine, Kristen and Kerry as Guest DTs for this blog-hop. Here's the blog-hop order for today:
Suzanne - Carolyn - Aud - Anki (me) - Marti - Danni - Dianne - Jennifer-Catherine - Alex - Kristen - Kerry
I got the honor to show you this little cute girl holding a birdhouse. This image is called Heartstrings. I just love it! She's supercute and I'm sure you are going to fall in love with her too ;-) I coloured her with my copics. Used my Basic Grey DPs and my Martha Stewart heart punch. Added a heart shaped cake paper behind the cute little girl and a piece of lace. Decorated the paperheart with several mini-roses - can't get enough of them :-) and some pearls of course.
Hope you like the result! Would love to hear from you before you hop to our talented Marti's creation.

It's time for another Try it out Tuesday and this week Suzanne wants us to only use 3 layers on our cards. Well - that was easy for one's - since I stamped and coloured the supercute and cool Fashionista. I coloured her with my copics. Added a few pearls and then of course the wonderful Prima roses. Can't have enough of them and luckily - Susana have a lot of new Prima flowers, jewelry and swirls in her store.
She also have a lot of other new items that you want to check out - so I'm sure you will go shopping. Also - the reason why I know that you will be shopping after this week - is the upcoming release with the new cuties from Elisabeth Bell! I love them already and I can't wait to show them to you - starting our blog hop - Feb 19th!
I decided however - that Fashionista - already did some shopping - waiting for the cuties to arrive and she got herself a corset ;-). Well - this is actually a corset bag that I made in the matching DPs. I purchased the tutorial here.

It's time for another challenge - and as we all know - Valentine's Day is getting closer.
Suzanne challenged us to use the colours Pink, Red and Purple.
I inked up cute little Daisy and coloured her with my copics. Picked up matching Basic Grey and Kaisercraft DPs. Added Hydrangeas and pink miniroses in the center.
The "text-stamp" is sent to me from my sweet friend Lim. Finally I had to add
some pink pearls ;-)
Here's a close up of little Daisy. If you look closely - you can see that I tried the feather technique shown on the copic creations blog (where Susana is sponsoring the fab prize).

I decided to use my new Basic Grey DPs together with my little Anya from the Rain, Snow and Shine collection. Coloured her with my copics and added highlights with my white gel pen.

It's getting closer and closer to Valentine's Day and I decided to make this little Valetine's box.
I purchased the tutorial regarding the box from Becky. Must say that I'm pleased with how it turned out.
Filled the box with an altered matchbox and candle, a post-it-note holder and of course some chocolate:-)
The tutorial for the post-it-note holder is from Angie Juda. Here's a close up.

I also made a matching card to go with the box.

After a long day at work and then almost 3 hours on our garage roof (yesterday afternoon/evening) I decided that I was longing for Spring ;-) So it was just perfect that I received my order from Susana with the new Basic Grey DP - Sugar Rush last week! Love them and the other DPs I ordered.
I coloured sweet Emma with my copics - just love her and cut her out. Then I cut two circles with my nesties - one round and the other scalloped - since I wanted it to look like a huge flower. Layered Emma in front of them.
Also - I hope you've noticed - Susana has new products in store for us. Happy that she made the CHA tour ;-)) Here are a few items that I've noted down on my next shopping list:
Looking fwd to hear from you.

PS. You might wonder what I did for so many hours on our garage roof - well - I had to take away all the snow - (more than 50 cm) to make sure that the roof did not break. You should see my biceps after this winter - hm.......HUGE ;-)

Read more below from Renata and I hope you will join us and support this little boy in his struggle.
"Dear blogfriends, I know you all love to make cards so what's better than to do something you realy enjoy and at the same time make a little boy happy in the most difficult time of his young life?
Daan, the son of my sisters friend, is 4 years old and has a brain tumor which is sadly enough incurable. More and more body functions fail such as his legs can't carry him anymore. At the moment he gets radiation because his parents and the doctors will make his life as easy as possible and of course no one will loose hope!
I think it is heartbreaking and I'm so sad that I can't do anything to help him! That's why I aks you girls to make him a funny card so he has something good to look forward to and I think it will help his parents and two little sisters (Sacha (6) and Anna (2)) as well.
I also want to ask you to keep him in you prayers or send a little positive energy and thoughts to him, because you never know! Do you want to join in this small gesture, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can send you the address you can send the card to. I like to thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love, Renata"
I know what I will be doing first thing tomorrow after work - a fun boyish card for Daan. I'm sure Isac will help me too - he love making cards and being the same age as Daan - then he def. know what a 4 year old boy will like. I hope you will join us for this good cause!
My thoughts and prayers to Daan and his family.
