Stamping with Jany - ROUND 2 :)

I should have posted this one on Friday, but as I was just saying in my previous entry, I couldn't find a chance to use a computer until now.

The DT for Stamping with Jany worked on more cards using the kit we were sent sometime ago. The papers and the stamped images from TAC (The Angel Company) are so happy and colourful, just perfect for the Spring we are all eagerly waiting for. :)

Although Jany (Dianette) provides us with a new sketch for each week, she has generously allowed us to use any layout if we so wish. For this week's card I didn't follow the 'proper' sketch and used a different one of Jany's.

Here's the card...

I practically used scraps of paper that were left from making the other cards. The designs are so pretty that I didn't wish to throw away anything.
And I am still crazy about that lil' birdie and especially about its 'haircut'. Lol
I also love the girl's boots - they are adorable, don't you agree? :D

Please have a look at Jany's Blog to read more about her card-kit and to admire what my DT friends -- Jill, Linda and Karin -- created with it.

Just Christmas and Birthday Cards - #17

Another week with me being late in posting. :(
I am still computer-less and it's driving me crazy to have to wait for my brother to allow me a little time on his computer. He does work at home too, so it's embarassing for me to nag him about it.

But I am lucky now for a few days because he's out of town on a job assignment (he works in traffic signaling and it takes him around the country quite a lot) and I can have his computer to myself. And I am lucky again with my brother :) - by the end of this week I will have a brand new computer which he bought for me as a gift. Well, we'll be both making the monthly payments for it, but my brother will contribute with a larger sum, so it still remains a gift for me. :)
I can't wait for this "dark age" to be over and for my new PC to arrive home.

This last week has been very sad for another reason too. On Wednesday night my uncle died quite unexpectedly. He was my Mum's brother and I loved him very very much and losing him too affected me a lot. I don't know what's going on with our family... maybe we are all programmed to disappear this year? Hope not!

Anyway... on with the show! :)

As I couldn't post these earlier in the week - I apologize - here are my DT cards for Week #17 at JCBC (showing them right before another challenge gets posted tomorrow morning)

Week #17's sketch was created by our very talented girl Janina

A lovely, lovely, lovely sketch! :)

And this is what I did with it...

Christmas card

The tree-row stamp is designed by the awesomely talented Chris Dark
I stamped it twice and doubled/layered a few of the foreground trees
Everything else I used on this card is stuff that was lying around in my crafting supplies boxes. :)

Birthday card

Here's another stamp from Chris, this one is a digi-stamp and I am in love with it :)
You MUST go see Chris' new digi-stamps blog, there are some wonderful designs to be found
The DP is "Boxer" from Basic Grey, the corner stamps are from Studio G and the sentiment from Imaginisce. The rest comes from stash.

Thank you for your patience and understanding regarding my current PC-situation.
And thank you for looking too. :)
