friday favourites

Hello!

Hope all is well!

I'm sharing my friday favourites and first up is the S.W.E.E.T free printable tag!!! Not only am I going to print these babies out it also inspired me to make some of my own (I got a few ideas brewing in the ol' noggin!)








I have a very long wish list at Eco Diva Beauty and Ilia lipsticks are one of the goodies I want to try out. To be totally honest the only thing that's stopping me from ordering is the shipping costs. They ship worldwide which is awesome and I believe the shipping is around $20 to Croatia and my measlbudget is just not having it......but one day!! :)








Ok..if I could redo my bathroom......








I feel the need to gold foil something....it's gonna happen!!


Hope you have a great weekend!

Beautfiul you

Hello!

Hope all is well! :)

I want to apologize for the quality of my pictures lately...I have no idea what's going on and don't really have the time to figure it out but I'll eventually figure it out

Anyways I created this card using our Butterflies, Pretty Peonies and Roses stamp sets. 



I did some masking with the flowers and leaf (the other two leaves I cut out). I added some colour using watercolours. I then heat embossed the peony with white embossing powder onto yellow cardstock so that this flower stood out and is the 'you' in the sentiment Beautiful you. I adhered the flower and one of the leaves with foam dots for some dimension. 



Hope you all have a lovely day!

And I also blog spotted this beauty created by the talented Marion using our Doodle Flowers stamp set!

call me

Hello!
Hope all is well and you're enjoying the weekend so far! I'm helping my son study for a history test from hell! Worst thing is he's only in grade 5!!!

Anyways...popping in to share this CAS card I created using our Attached to you stamp set. I stamped the phone to cover the whole card. I then hand drew the speech bubble on yellow cardstock and cut it out and heat embossed the sentiment with some white embossing powder. 



Have a great day!

mini card

Hello!
Hope all is well! :)

I created a mini card using our Nuts about you and Attached to you stamp sets. I had a piece of scrap green cardstock which I had already stamped the chevron pattern from our Patterns for Him stamp set.


Added little puffy heart stickers. :)


Have a great day!

miss you

Hello!

Hope all is well! :)

It's my turn over at the JD blog today and I used our Butterflies and Daffodils (for the sentiment) to create this card. I must confess that I had stamped and painted (with watercolors) these butterflies a while back so it didn't take me long to create this card. Whenever I loose my mojo I like to stamp images and colour them and have them ready.





I added a little glitter with glossy accents and I also adhered the butterflies with glossy accents too. I wanted some dimension, as if they were fluttering around so I added the glossy accents to the body of the butterfly leaving the wings free to shape.

This card make me think of my mama...I miss her terribly!



Have a great day!

-heat embossing
-water colours/vodene boje

I am donating all the money from this workshop to help the flood affected areas in Croatia and I will share on the blog and facebook the donation....not that I'm saying you guys think I wouldn't do it...just because! :)

Unless you are Croatian, Bosnian or Serbian or know someone who is you probably don't know about the devastation these countries are going through. It's heartbreaking to watch. Is it making headlines around the world? Probably not...it's only the Balkans.....you are foolish if you think this doesn't affect you. I ask you just be aware and help out in any way you can....if nothing else please pray!

for some bunny special

Hello!
Hope all is well! This is my second post for today...scroll down to check out my Friday Favourites! :) 

 I created this adorable (if I do say so myself) card using our Spring stamp set! :) 




I did a little paper piecing (the tummy and ears using my old dictionary), coloured (with Graph'it markers) and cut them out.




I created my background with my plain from the grocery store watercolors...easy peasy! :) And I added a cute mustache to one of the bunnies!


Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Hello!
Happy Friday!!  I don't know about you but we here in Zagreb are having the worst weather!!! The wind is mental!! And then the rain.....it's Mia's First Communion on Sunday and really hope the weather will get better!!

Anyhow....I'm sharing some of my favourites today. I'm really ready for warm weather and all things Spring/Summer! I've started working in my garden (love working in the garden...so relaxing for me!) and I think my favourites are a reflection



How cute is this little succulent garden in a jar!!!! and have I mentioned already my love for yellow in the home lately! :)







I did something similar to some cork boards...you can check them out here and here. I've got a little rug that would be perfect for this project.







Hydrangea's are one of my favourites!! 







And if this bedroom doesn't shout SUMMER...then I don't know what does!! :)

Have a great weekend!

tuna sandwiches

Hello!
Hope all is well!

I'm quite busy...my daughter Mia is having her First Communion this Sunday and we're having family over so I have lots of preparations and cleaning to do (so I'm taking a bit of a break from Jane's Doodles)....yesterday I made tuna sandwiches for me and my husband and I thought I'd share this recipe. I didn't come up with it on my own but I can't remember where I found it (on line some where). It caught my eye because with only one can of tuna (they're pretty expensive right?) you can feed a crowd. And also I never heard of using fennel in a tuna sandwich!!

So you'll need:

tuna
mayo
onions (I used spring onions)
salt
pepper
fennel



Fennel is what makes one can of tuna go a long way!! So grate the fennel and really squeeze the liquid out. Chop the onions, salt and pepper to taste, add some mayo (I don't like too much...just enough so it holds all the ingredients together). I also threw in some hemp seeds and added some lettuce when I assembled the sandwiches. So you can add as much, onion, mayo etc. as you like/prefer but let me tell you it's sooooo good and easy!



Bon appetit!

Take care!

Hello!

Hope all is well!
It's been very stressful the past 2 weeks...it's hard to watch family dealing with sickness...I haven't been able to concentrate on much lately...doing a lot of praying. If you are the praying type I ask for your prayers.

TGIF!! Can I get an Amen! 
And can you believe I'm posting my Friday favourites...on a Friday! :)

As soon as I saw this pin I knew it was something I was going to try!! Later today I'm going to go and buy some clay and give it a go this weekend! I have worked with Fimo but never this air drying clay...my first attempt was this bunny and it turned out pretty cute! :)







I'm really loving yellow accents in the home lately. So bright and cheerful! I believe this pillow is from Etsy.







I LOVE to crochet...it's therapy for me! And this gorgeous colour block pillow is something I'd love to try!







I just LOVE this mug from Anthropologie!! I'm fine with the price....but not to fine with the $55 shipping charge! :( So I have no choice but to buy a plain white mug and paint it myself! 



Well..that's it for now...if you haven't joined our JD blog hop (we're giving away our newest stamp sets TEArrific and Springyou still have time!

Have a great weekend!
