I’ve stopped keeping track

Hey friends!
How are things going in your corner of the world?
Over here it’s a grey day (great song btw), but at least it’s not raining (important thing for dog owners).

Anyhow, I’d like to share two cards for a challenge and there’s a blog award!

First off, I decided to take part in Dawn’s Color Challenge, here’s attempt #1:

Love the non-traditional colour scheme!! The idea is a total CASE from Heather Pulvirenti’s adorable snowflake card.
Everything is PTI (CS: Aqua Mist, Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz; Ribbon: Aqua Mist Grosgrain) except for the lavender/light pink bling (Basic Grey), the punched snowflakes (LSS) and the rub-on (SU).

And another try, this time as a birthday card for my Kiwi friend Amber (her bday is only in december, but I think she doesn’t read my blawg ;))

The deets are pretty much the same as in the first card, the letters are SU’s Jumbo Outline alphabet, the sentiment is from the SU set “Absolutely Fabulous” and the leaves (PTI Out on a Limb) were stamped with Versamark. Sorry for the bad pics, as I said it’s really dreary outside, hence the bad lighting. (BTW this is another shameless CASE from KWerner)

Next up, I got a blog award!! Yay!
Thanks to lovely Naomi *wave*

The rules are : I need to pass this award on to five people, comment on their blog to let them know I left this award, and then I need to answer a list of questions in ONE word. (anybody who knows me, will know how incredibly difficult this is for me… ;))

  10. Hi again, Nina,

    When I said “you didn’t shy away from anything…” I meant you weren’t afraid to use large amounts of each colour on your card. Sometimes using many colours is difficult but you made it look easy!! I hope that makes sense!! I loved your Amber card!!

  11. Jo

    Oh those little snowflakes are too cute, love the stitching.

  12. Oh Nina, vielen lieben Dank! Als ich noch keinen Blog hatte habe ich mir immer geschworen, sowas machst du nie mit! Und jetzt habe ich mich so sehr darüber gefreut, setz mich gleich mal an die Antworten, aber nur je 1 Wort das fällt mir auch schwer 😉

  13. Hi Nina,
