Let's face it - we're having a blue indigo simple fun!

A quick post, to end the day and the week:
Pam from 365 cards asked: "have you ever thought about making a face out of the elements you place on your card?"
Well, I never thought about it. and this is such a big question, so I got some help from my kids... LOL (Rose, I don't know what about Pam's kids, but mine are sure happy with this something Pam gets into her coffee...). so we have here 3 faces
that the kids and me made :)
(Gloria & Rose: did you see that the hair goes out of the lines just a little bit?.. LOL(
With making this card I actually finished the 365 card week (ok, ok,so I cheated a bit, with two cards... Gloria, please stand up for me!). I had some law mojo the past few days, and with the kids around, full time job and the housekeeping, I didn't have enough time to craft. shame on me... I was so tempted to combine all this week challenges into one card... after all I'm preety good in combining a lot of challenges into one card (still waiting to IritShalom's announcement on her Royal challenge winner), but didn't do so.
So what challenges have we got here?
1. face it - #270 365 cards
2. color: I for (blue) indigo - abc challenges
3. chipboard (where the sentiment is) - artful inkables
4. another chipboard - #79 creative belli
5. rub on + another challenges - #25 pile it on (the sentiment)
6. same shape different size (circles for the head and for the eyes and mouth) - frosted designs.

Well, thats it. have to clean up and get ready for the new day and week.

Pink Maggie over tied up string (or a thread...)

I just don't belive it, I just forgot to upload my card's photo! LOL....
so here it is, my work:

I know, I just said my mojo had left me, and here I'm with a new card. Well the mojo did reallt gone, but tomorrow we are visiting old good friends, and their youngest daughter had her birthday just yesterday. My kids made greeting cards for her and for another friend of them who had her birthday this week, and they used my new arrival - 'sunflowers & dragonflies' clear un mounted stamps, that i've won a few weeks ago (thank you, Beth!). As for my self, I also used 'new arrival' - Maggie of digital delights, which I won last week at 365 cards. As usual with me, I colored her with watercolor pencils & adhered it with a 3-D doublesided adhere on a chipboard. The pink rounded paper is shining, but I'm not sure you cand see it in the photo. I tied the ribbon Maggie is sitting on just because Pam asked for knots on our card and it still not my time to rebel (that's for you, Rose...) (and besides now Maggie won't fall... LOL(. I added silver rub-ons in the inner part of the card, but unfortunately it's hard to see it. Anyway, I think the birthday kid, 7 years old, would love this card. She dies for pink, and the easel card would just be perfect for her (easel cards are real fun!).
Lots of challenges inspired me with this card:
1. sketch - #42 card patterns
2. pink & sparkly - #2 susie diecuts dreams
3. celebrate - #1 sweet stampin
4. color combo: brown + pink - #79 a spoon full of sugar
5. color it! - caardvarks
6. sparkle - the craft garden
7. chipboard - artful inkables
8. chipboard - creative belli
9. tied up in knots - day 269 365 cards
10. rub-ons - pile it (in the inner part of the card, now seen too well....P
11. same shape different size - frosted designs (the circles, the pearls & the rhinestones)
12. digi imgages - #19 rumble in the cottage
13. anything goes - #19 paper cutz
14. pick 3 challenge - stamping vacation - I picked bows, pearls and crystals.
15. favorite things - #38 creative card crew - mine on this card are: pearls, ribbons
and digi stamp.
16. add some sparkle - #18 bee crafty
Thanks for popping over and having a look. It would be so nice if you leave a comment.
have a lovely weekened.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart

I'm afraid my mojo is gone this week :-( , so I'm not fighting it, rather listening to my inner voice and letting it go.
Anyway, I made this thank you card for some reason, and I wish to thank my loving supporting family, each one and one of you, my dear, is so wonderful and so encouraging me and giving me so much strength. There are not enough words to express what you are to me, and how much I love all of you.
thank you for what you are and for being there for me, always when I need you.
And happy thanksgiving to my dear family at the States, and to all my american blog friends, who celebrate the holiday this weekend.

חברה טובה שלי עומדת ללדת בקרוב את הבן השלישי שלה, אז שמחתי להכין כבר את כרטיס הברכה (למרות האמונה הטפלה...), בהשראה של האתגר ב- 365cards ואתגרים נוספים.
הניירות בחלק החיצוני הם רכישה טריה מביג דיל - שתי חבילות שונות במחיר ממש מצחיק, שהתחלקו בין 3 נשים יוצרות.
החותמת על נייר ההעתקה היא של Layers of color שקיבלתי השבוע בדואר כפרס על אחד האתגרים שהשתתפתי בהם (הכרטיס של הפיה היושבת על קאפקייק). הכפתור צבוע בצבע אקרילי, שארית מאתגר מלפני כמה ימים. הכיתוב בפנים הוא אותיות כסף מטאליות נדבקות על נייר העתקה.
מצא חן בעיני הרעיון של הכרטיס העומד (easel card) - הוא כל כך פשוט להכנה וכיפי.
תודה שבאתם להסתכל.
שיהיה לכם סופ"ש נעים ויפהפה!
