September Bedtime Story Sketch.

Hello Everyone!!

Time just goes so fast and I haven't been able to craft as much as I would have liked to… Our little Leonel had his first birthday yesterday!! He is a very cute and happy little boy who almost walks and goes everywhere!

You can imagine that' it's not easy to find some me time, but when I saw the sketch for the Pajama Party of Waltzingmouse I knew at once what I wanted to do… I love the new Little Darlings Images set so much… it is just gorgeous!!! And so I stamped the pram and cut it with this great Baby Carriage Die set.

I made a vellum doily with the Dainty Doilies 2 Small set and the wooden background is made with one of the Way out West stamp. The little cute heart on the tag is from the Make Your Mark set. I just added some lace, ribbons, a felt heart and some white pearls. I also stitched the edges and here it is:

Here's the great sketch of this month:

Wishing you all a great party and hopefully I'll be able to craft and see all of your work more often!

For Jan.

I had the chance to meet Jan and her husband Mike this winter. We had a great time together and I will never forget these moments. Jan is a great lady and she has made so much for Flourishes.  I really wish you all the best, Jan!

I wanted to make You a special card for this great party! The sentiment of the set Flowers for Jan is just perfect… I love it and it's so true!! I chose these flowers, because I know that you love them and they are so beautiful! You can also see seven little rhinestones… two representing me and Timo and five for our children…

People will walk
in and out
of your life
but only a few
will leave
in your 

Have a great day, Jan!! Wishing you good health and lots of hugs!!

Anne-Elise and family

January Beautiful World Tour.

Beautiful World Graphic

Hello Everyone!

Anne-Elise here this month to welcome you to the first Beautiful World Tour of the year 2014!! I wish you all a beautiful, happy and crafty New Year!!

This month I'm the hostess and I chose the "Vintage" theme to challenge the team. I wanted to make something beautiful to start this new year and I chose the dress form from the Feminine Charm set. I colored it with different Copic markers: Creamy CollectionLenten Rose Collection, Cool Neutrals and Green Grass Collection. I made some flowers, stitched the edges, added different layers and a pink seam binding ribbon. The cute little tag is made with the classic tag die set and the sentiment is from the Tiny Flowers and Tags set. Three little buttons and white pearls to finish it off!

I also wanted to bring you a warm greeting from Florida where we spent our Christmas holidays this year. We had the chance to go to Pensacola (it was a very long drive from Miami) and see Jan and Mike and the Flourishes home base. We really enjoyed our time there. We went with Mike to the Naval Aviation Museum and then later to the beautiful beach. I had never seen a beach with white sand… it was really gorgeous!! Thank you again, Jan and Mike for the great time we had with you!! I'm just so sad because we lost all the photos that were on Timo's phone and so the first photo is the only one I have with Mike...

Thank you for taking time to visit me, it's time to grab your passport and board the Flourishes Flight BWT, your next destination is:
