A Christmas Tag and a Butterfly Birthday Card

I am not so active in Blogland and my Craft table is empty without me :) it is because I got a new Job as Accounting Assistant. I am happy to work again but then the time management is not so good..I have so less time to visiting my friends blog and only made DT cards Duty :) hope you can forgive me :) as soon as I am settle with my job and understand the new Accounting Programm I will be more active in Blogland :)

Today I like to share this TAG that I inspired by one tag at the day 23 from Tracey event in her Blog.

Here is the Tag I inspired by: (from Audrey Tokach)

 Its not my TAG its from Audrey T

I got the stamped Image from my lovely friend F (many thanks liebe F :)) and colored with Peerless Transparent Watercolors. Really love the vibrant color that watercolors gave.

The sentiment Merry Christmas is PTI and I cut by my self and drew the line at the edge. The sentiment Ho Ho Ho is Hero Arts and the little Christmas tree is Paper Smooches.

I also made this card and forgot to make a picture, I  made some cards for the Indonesian Bazaar at 12 November, and this was not sold, also I am lucky I can still make photo today :) I choose the sketch from Stamplorations and it was a quick card I made at 23:00 PM a night before the Bazaar.

The sentiment is PTI, the Die cut Frame is from Billie (many thanks Billie) the Butterfly was from Flo (danke sehr Flo), I was searching my stash and try to used it for making some quick birthday card :)

  1. Love your cute tag Monika - that Santa image is so sweet. The card is quite dramatic with the black butterfly and the soft background colours

  2. I know what its like trying to juggle a busy workload and card making. I haven't been active much either as its Spring here in New Zealand and I have gardening work coming out of my ears because weeds are growing so quickly. And I really miss spending time just creating. Your tag is so very sweet and that santa image is one of my favourites. I'm so glad you found the time to enter this at TIME OUT and hope you find some crafting time soon!!

  3. Fabulous tag, love the Santa and your colouring.

  4. I really like how you have made some of the elements of the tag fall over the edge of the tag and what a lovely doily. Great to see you at Time Out x

  5. Hei, Monika!
    So nice to hear that you are working again! :) And yes, it's not so nice when we find that our crafting table has been neglected and we desperately miss it... I feel this every day and wish so many times I'd only make a living in the crafting world! Oh, well...
    Your card and tag are perfect, especially the tag... love the cute santa and the way you've adhered the different elements so that some fall off the edge of the tag
    So creative!
    Sending a huge hug to you, my friend and thank you for your comments

  21. I'm quite busy myself and I totally understand one cannot be available in blogland all the time:) but how cute your Santa tag is! Tags are not my favorites to make, I always struggle, there's either too little or too much on mine. This is fun and perfectly balanced.
    Classy birthday card too, the kind of card that works for many different kinds of women.

  22. Oh, I just love your little Santa tag! SOOO cute, and I love the red background! And I really appreciate your doodled border. Effective.
    The butterfly card is a great addition to a stash. You could easily change the sentiment to say "Hello" or "Thank you" or "Get well"... very versatile!

  23. Brilliant Santa card and love the beautiful butterfly too.
    Thank you for joining us at Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

  24. What a lovely Christmas tag ,Monica.

  25. TEEHEE!! Your Santa tag really makes me smile Monika!! I love all of the wonderful elements you've put on that design! :) Your second card is so pretty with the butterfly and lace!! I hope that you are happy with your new job and I wish you the best! Hopefully you can get a routine and get in your stamp room! Sending hugs! :)
