Challenge #44: Favorite things

Goodmorning everyone,


a big thank you to everyone entering our previous challenge. We loved visiting your blogs and see all your great cards folowing our card recipe.

The random winner and guestdesigner for a whole month is.....




Congratulations!!!

Please send Karin a email for all the details.




This week we would like to know more about you!

What are your favorite papers, colours, stamps, embellishments etc.

Create a card using your favorite things.


(please write in short what your favorite things are when you upload your card on your blog).




This week we have some ribbon and flowers for one lucky lady as a prize.

I will be adding some stamped images too.





Take a look at our DT-members favorite things andthe cards they created.






My favorite things at the moment are the beautifull papers from My Mind's Eye -bloom and grow- and Imaginisce - twitterpad-. I also love stitches on my card but because I have to do this by hand I don't stitch that much. And last but not least flowers.. I really love them.







My favorite things are... all kind of girly things like pink, a lot of glitter, flowers etc.

I have added lots glitter and used very girly colours to create a card that I would love to receive.








Monika

I love using my Jenome sewing machine... a little bit of stitching gives so much to a card. I also love using my Spellbinders Nestabilities dies these days. I hardly ever make a card without using some kind of a die. This time I used one of the Curved Rectangles dies and my new Classic Frame die.


Cathy


My favourite craft things at the moment are these gorgeous K and Co papers, this beautiful Sugar Nellie Windswept image, my EK Success flower punches, and organza ribbon (any colour, any width!!)




Tamara:
My favorite things are many colors! Pink, yellow, blue, green, you name it and I use it. I use lots of flowers, brads, chalk & crystal swirl on my cards and as tool can I not live without my disteresser.


Desire Fourie from Doing Life


My absolute favourite crafting tools are my range of EK Success Punches. The different shapes are so versatile in creating one's own embellishments. I have used four different punches on this card.




Neliz
My favorite things are my embossing powders, my doodlefactory stamps, everything dotted, BlingBling and bright colors. So this is the card i made with these things.






My favorite things are not all in this card, but some of them are. Starting with the small size of my card. This is a 3X4 card, perfect for a gift. Red is my favorite color. I love brads and scrappers floss as well as my tombows used as watercolor. I'm still learning to use them but its effect is great! I love dimensionals too and this image got me in love before I bought it but haven't used it until this card.




Wilma


My favourite things at the moment are these papers from BoBunny and this very cute stamp from Whimsy stamps. Love those little cuties! I also like flowers and sweet colours for my cards.





We are looking forward in seeing your card using your personal favorites.
Please leave a message on this post untill Wednesday evening with a link to your work so we can come over to visit.

Have a great week.
Karin and the DT-Members
