Owl-ways Be Happy - a birthday card

A birthday card for a 6y old boy. I've made it pretty quickly, so it's a kind of a CAS card (I've had the owl pre-made a while ago, wanted to put it on one of my lo, but didn't use it then).
The image is from Digital Delights, a prize I've won a while ago.

And these are the challenges I'm entring this card for:
colors - sp-color combo:

owl - cic17
paper piecing - #16 fresh brewed
recipe (color aqua, dp, embellishments as you wish) - #84 tpe
dimension - sentimental sunday

Thanks for stopping by!

כרטיס שהכנתי יחסית די מהר ליום הולדת של ילד בן 6. ההכנה היתה די מהירה כי החותמת עם הפייפרפיסינג כבר היתה מוכנה לי (רציתי לשלב אותה באחד מדפי האלבום שהכנתי לאחרונה, אבל היא לא התאימה לי ובסופו של דבר לא השתמשתי בה).

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל.

Fine (evereything's gonna be fine, fine, fine...)

Edit: This lo won #68 spcc
color combo. Thank you!

This lo was chosen as a Ginger Gem
Gingersnap Creations
neutrals plus one challenge
Thanks you!

I've already made 2 lo about summer afternoon at the beach, one of each of my kids, and now it's my turn... :) Like I've wrote in previous posts, it was a very stressful day for me and I was very depressed, but being by the seaside, with my kiddos, turned it into a fab afternoon. I had to remind myself that "what it all comes down to is that everything's gonna be fine, fine, fine"... Hand in my pocket by Alanis Morisette, the inspiration for this week over Scrapping the music (love, love, love that song!).
The journaling says, in hebrew: "reminding myself that everything, but everything, is gonna be fine. The finest there is. We're healthy and happy. All worries, all problems, all will find it's solution. Everything's gonna be just fine".
The journaling spot and the matting of it were embossed and then inked with distress ink, and so were the cream butterflies.

Sketch is of Helen Croft's, on Sketches in Thyme, only I flipped and turned it to fit my photo:

colors are for Our Creative Corner, with this color scheme:
and for sp-color combo:

 And some more challenges:
vintage - alphabet; for fun
neutrals plus one color - #72 gingersnap
handmade flowers - #17 paper romance; scrappy frogs
recipe (2 dp, embossing, buttons) - #65 mawtt
lace & pearls - #28 cuyl

Thanks for stopping by!

דף נוסף על אחה"צ קסום בחוף הים, הפעם עם תמונה שלי. תזכורת לכך שבסופו של דבר, הכל מסתדר על הצד הטוב....

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל וחג שמח!

One sketch, many CAS challenges and two cards

This is my 2nd post today. For my previous one, please scroll down :).

The cards blogland is full of CAS/KIS challenges, and here are another two CAS cards I've made, both from the sketch over get sketchy:

It was a perfect sketch for this K & Co. dp I got as one of my B-Day presents. The pink strip and the pinwheels are also from that pad. The 'you're amazing' sticker is also K&Co. (lots of goodies I got as a present from my BF...).

I'm entering them to the fiollowoing challenges:
sketch - #57 gs
colors - #26 otwc with this photo for inspiration:
"B" embllishments (brads, the center of the pinwheels) - #100 creative belli
dimension - #22 sentimental sundays

Thanks for stopping by!

שני כרטיסים קלילים שהכנתי ממש 'על הדרך', כי הסקיצה כל כך התאימה לי לנייר המדוגם (ולפחות את אחד מהם הייתי צריכה כדי לשלוח ברכת שנה טובה מאוחרת...). זו גם הייתה הזדמנות להכין את השבשבות הקטנות הללו, שכבר מזמן רציתי לשבץ ולא מצאתי את המקום המתאים. מדהים כמה הן קלות להכנה (ריבוע, חיתוך ארבע הפינות כמעט עד קו המרכז וקיפול המשולשים לסירוגין. במרכז סיכה מתפצלת או כפתור או פרח), וכמה יש להן אפקט חמוד.

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל!

Who is a hero? - lo, plus a bloom card איזהו גיבור? דף מעוצב וגם כרטיס

Today I have two things to share with you, a lo & a card, so it's going to be a little long post...

Edit: This lo won Top 3 at Frosted Designs,
For 'Peach & Cream' challenge. Thank you!
As soon as I saw the new challenge over Frosted Designs, to use peach and cream on your creation (with a twist of adding something sparkly), I knew what photo I'd scrap with this color scheme.

I decided to repay my debt to my bloggy friend, Tesa, who challenged me long time ago to make a lo with my own sketch and use some doodling. I didn't use any sketch, so it's kind of 'my own', and it's so me - lots of layers, lots of flowers, stickles, a little distressing and stitching.
Looking at the colors of this photo, and inorder to match those colors, I used a color scheme that is unusual for me - peach, bashful blue, cream & purple. Isn't it a real challenging color combo?

The photo is of my youngest, on his first day at kindergarten two years ago (where has the time gone by???! I just can't believe it, he has grown up so much these passing two years!). He rode that lion statue on school's yard, when we came with his brother on the first day at school. He loves that lion ever since.

The title in hebrew, done in free doodling with peach stickles, is an old jewish saying, from our tradition, and it says: "Who is a hero? the one that conquers his passion/temper", and it seems so appropriate to my youngest. It's his biggest mission and not so easy to achieve, but he's doing a tremendous work for the past months. The gournling, in hebrew, says about the first day at the new kindergarten, facing new experiences and challenges. So this lo goes for the poem challenge of 'First day of school' by Eddie Garcia, at Scrap That Poetry.

Here is a close-up on the envelope, this time open. I put a personal letter inside it... One day my son will open it and read those heart touching things I wrote for him...

It's a very "guy lo", but I wanted to put on it lots of flowers, pearls, glitter, etc. all girlish stuff (hint: it concern the challeng I gave Tesa... wait and see). Here are some close-ups on the details:

As for the other chllenges:
b embellishments (mine are the brads on the envelope and the button on the upper flower) - #105 creative belli.
embossing (the envelope) - crafty pad; scrap&stamp (plus atleast one stamp - mine is the heart among the flowers - a Unity stamp); #26 digi doodle shop's best; #28 sisc
distressing - abc
lavender & lace - #7 pfop (with flowers, and I used lots of them...)
flowers - if the shoe fits
lace & pearls - #28 cuyl (lace doily as matting for the peach flower and pearls on all the brown leaves)
animals - papertake weekly; stamping vacation; #8 rrr (my inspiration was the jungle animal and there're lots of little ribbons on the flowers); #60 paper cutz
winged - #123 flutterby wednesday
back to school - #24 tpe
hand made flowers (mine are the felt flowers, done with cuttlebug, and the large peach flower on the bottom, underneath the silk ribbon flower) - #60 tuesday morning; #43 alota rubber stamps; scrappy frogs
glitter - #47 lrw; #25 asc; delightful challenges
bling - #56 crazy4challenges
it's a guy thing - #7 scrapping with idic (many girlish embellishments, but a hero is a guy thing!)
anything but a card - #38 stampin' royalty; #24 crafty ann
anything goes - #122 asfos; #38 charisma cradz;
use a quote - #41 fab 'n' funky
ribbons & bows - #6 wild orchid
use a photo - #23 lexi's

And I liked this color combo, so here's the card I've made:

I made it for the following challenges:
peach & cream - frosted designs (okay, mostly lavender/purple, but still I used peach & cream, and I added sparkle... LOL)
purple & silver - #102 secret crafter
flowers - if the shoe fits (above)
sparkle - #47 lrw; #25 asc (also above)
anything goes - #122 asfos; #38 charisma cradz;  (above)
ribbon & bows - #6 wild orchid

Now, off I go with the kids to the pool (yes, it's still quite hot here...).
Thanks for stopping by! Have a lovely weekend!

Amy's Flashback Friday Challenge

My bloggy friend, Amy, started her won challenge. It's scrappy flashbacking, and it's great!
And look at that fancy blinkie she got!

On the current challenge, it was Rose's turn to choose the challenge, and she asked us to put our very first challenge card.
This is my first one, I've made it for ~only~ 4 challenges... LOL here is my post (which was my very first post. I never blogged before)
What has remained? Layers, flowers, my love for BG.
What has changed? Almost everything else... LOL tools, distressing, taking photos, vintage style...

Now, it's your turn to show your very first challenge card...

Thank you, Amy, for a fun challenge (as if anything with you is else but fun... LOL)

Little Wonders, Free Like A Bird - lo חופשי כציפור

Edit: I've won #7 scrapping with I Did It Creations
for 'it's a guy thing' challenge. Thank you!

That afternoon we spent at the beach 2 months ago, was so great. We've been to the beach many times, but still that particular afternoon goes with me as a memory of magical hours, our little wonders. And so the song "Little wonders", the inspiration for this week over Scrap it with a song, was so perfect for scrapping this photo.
The photo is of my eldest, runnig with his arms wide open, free like a bird (and that is the title in hebrew).
I used the sketch from Stuck?!:

Look at those felt birdies on the branch:

I hand cut them my self. Aren't they lovely? The branch is a Unity stamp and I used acrylic paint to stamp it. Stamping with acrylic paint gives a different look than using ink. I love it.

I'm entering it also for 'all winged things' - #123 flutterby wednesday; anything but a card - #38 stampin royalty; #24 crafty ann; monochromatic - lots to do; distressing - abc. It also goes for the pagerize challenge over scrap our stash; it's a guy thing - #7 scrapping with idic (well, no lace, no ribbons, go glitter, no flowers - sure it's a guy thing! LOL)

Thanks for stopping by!

עוד תמונה בסדרת תמונות שצילמתי באחה"צ קסום אותו בילינו לפני כחודשיים בחוף הים בפלמחים. אותו אחה"צ חקוק בזכרוני כשעות קסומות, וזה השתלב עם האתגר של השראה משיר - Little wonders.
הפוזה של הבן הבכור שלי, עם זרועות פרושות כאילו הוא ציפור, השתלבה לי עם ציפורים, וכך גזרתי מלבד ציפורים, החתמתי עם חותמת של יוניטי ענף עם צבע אקרילי ושירבטתי את הרגליים של הציפורים. האותיות הן מקסם שימושי.

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל!

2 like a pair of eyes - lo שניים כמו זוג עיניים

Edit: this lo won grand prize at Practical Scrappers,
for 'ribbon challenge' ! Thank you!

The photo was taken at Rosh Hanikra grottoes 2 weeks ago. The title is from an Isreale song and it says (in free translation): two, just like a pair of eyes.This lo is for the following challenges:
At first I wasn't sure I'll play with this sketch. Usually I don't do multi-photos lo, but then I thought it can be a great combination with the challenge over frosted design, which asked to cut the photo. That challenge was very hard for me... I think my hand shivered before I cut my kids photo.... That's what I like most about challenges - they're challenging me... LOL

cut your photo - frosted design
use numbers (plus stamping) - scrap and stamp saturday. On this lo there are numbers on the title and on the tag embellishment, which was done with a coupon stamp, another stamp is the frame fro the journaling).
distressing - abc; #5 the stamp man
riboons & bows - #6 wild orchid
neutrals plus one color (mine is blue) - #72 gingersnap
vintage - #6 annoyme scrappere; for fun
anything but a card - #38 stampin' royalty
2 stamped images - #79 cinspirations
friendship - #9 paper jewels (not just friends... best buddies)
recycle - #28 workout scrapfit (both the matting for the photo and the tags were made out of the back of an office writhing pad)

Thanks for stoppinb by and have a great day!

תמונה שצולמה בראש הנקרה בראש השנה האחרון. הגדלתי אותה כדי לחתוך אותה לכמה חלקים. למרות החששות הראשוניים מחיתוך התמונה, אני אוהבת את התוצאה.
עשיתי הרבה דיסטרסינג בדף הזה, על התמונות, על הדפים, על התגיות ואפילו על סרט המשי.
אהבתי גם את הקריעה עם הניטים וקשירת הסרט. זה מוסיף עוד יופי לדף.
על דף כהה כל כך היה צריך להשתמש בתמונה מאד מוארת. הנוף שברקע הוא בעיני מהיפים ביותר בישראל.

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל! חג אסיף שמח ומאושר.

Lost In A Daydream - lo

I've made this lo for the #15 challenge over Sketches in Thyme and for the song inspiration over #152 scrapping the music.
Here is the sketch, by Helen Croft:

The song inspiration is Daydream by Jason Castro. I took part of the line for the title. The photo is of my youngest, at the beach. I think the photo is like a daydream, and that afternoon at the beach was so great, a real daydream...

I'm entering this lo also to the following challenges:
distressing - abc#5 the stamp man; sir stampalot
vintage - #10 the beary scrap designs

Thanks for stopping by!

דף מעוצב עם תמונה של הבן הצעיר שלי בחוף הים בפלמחים. זו הייתה גיחה ספונטנית מאד ומוצלחת ביותר. העברנו שם כמה שעות רגועות ונעימות ביחד. האווירה בתמונה הזאת בעיני היא מאד חולמנית וקסומה, כך שהאתגר של השראה מהשיר Daydream ממש התאים לי עבורה.
עשיתי הרבה דיסטרסינג בדף הזה, קצת צבע אקרילי, דודלינג חופשי, גם של המסגרת וגם על העננים - קשה לראות זאת בגלל שהיה אור שמש כל כך חזק כשצילמתי :)), שימוש בפאנצ'-חותמת פרפר של MS, כמה אבני חן קטנטנות, צ'יפבורדים, סרט תחרה ומפית תחרה ש'לוכלכה' בדיו דיסטרס.
יצא דף מאד וינטאג'י. אני מאד נהנית לעשות דף וינטאג' גם לתמונות של הבנים, רק שאיכשהו נראה לי שככל שהם גדלים, זו הופכת משימה יותר מורכבת... (כמו עוד כמה משימות שנהיות מורכבות יותר ככל שהם גדלים :))) ).

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל!

What she didn't post is about the most beautiful necklace she gave me!!! It's that silver flower you can see on the photo above. How on earth did she know that I'm a 'silver kind of gal'????
Let me tell you that all those goodies are even more beautiful IRL!
I'm so thrilled!!!! Thank you so much, girl friend. You've certainly made me very very happy! And as you can see, I already used the signo white pen.... LOL (but I thing I'll just hoard the rest of the goodies...)

Thanks for stopping by!

דף שהכנתי לאתגר של השראה  מציור - Artastic (תמונה של הציור - למעלה). היה צריך להשתמש בתמונה עם חיית מחמד, צבעי כתום וחום ולהוסיף פרח אקזוטי.
לפסים שמתחת התמונה לקחתי דפים מדוגמים וגלגלתי אותם. ראיתי את זה בכמה וכמה בלוגים לאחרונה, והרעיון מאד מצא חן בעיני.
גם המעטפות הטרנדיות  מוצאות חן בעיני, והכנתי לי מלאי שלהן, בעיצובים שונים. זה כל כך פשוט להכין אותן - שלושה קיפולים, עיצוב הסגירה, יישון עם דיו והוספת קישוטים (סיכות מתפצלות, תחרה, כפתורים וכיוצ"ב).
לחותמת הדיגיטלית של הכלב עשיתי פייפרפיסינג והוספתי גם חותמת גומי של טביעות כף רגל של כלב...
התמונה הנוספת היא של מתנה מדהימה שקיבלתי מהחברה הבלוגית שלי, Tesa, ששלחה לי את הכרטיס המדהים הזה, עם קופסת מתנה מטופלת יפהפיה ובתוכה סרטי תחרה מקסימים. וגולת הכותרת - שרשרת כסופה עם פרח. מדהים!

תודה שנכנסתן להסתכל!
צום קל (למי שצם) וגמר חתימה טובה לכולנו.
