A Monster Birthday!

Good morning!
 
I'm soooo happy to be here today with a non-Christmas card!
I had a few hours and decided to dedicate to my card for Gerda Steiner Monthly Challenge:
 
 
It's Birthday Monster digi stamp from Gerda Steiner, colored with Copics and mounted on papers from Best Creation (they are old, I know...).

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge extra for July - Mid-Month Inspiration.

Welcome to our mid-month inspiration post for our CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra!
 
It's a bit difficult to concentrate on winter and Christmas cards in this wonderfully hot summer, so this time I opted for unusual pastel colors and short sleeves for my card:

It wasn't a Christmas digi but I thought it was perfect to celebrate a baby's first Christmas adding some pastel-colored papers (First Editions) and some touches of red here and there.

CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for April - Mid-Month Post.

Spring is in full bloom and I think we all need a bit more inspiration in order to be able to make Christmas cards!
 
Here at CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra we are used to give you some mid-month inspiration and this is mine:
 
 
I chose Season's Greetings Feet from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps (they have a brand new shop, have you already checked it out?) colored with Copics.
I printed a quite big version of the stamp so I only needed a long card base and some striped paper to make my card!
 
My teamies have created very inspiring cards, have a look here to see them all!
 
Happy Easter my dear readers!
