DWA How do you do it?

Hi friends

Its Friday! my favorite day of the week, cause that meens you can sleep late tomorrow ( dream on baby, thats just not possible with a 1 and a half year old little diva huligan) well, i hope that the most of you can. Im so missing those good old days, when you could woke up and just role around in the bed, watch some morning tv, enjoing coffee in bed. and if you wanted to, just stay in bed the whole day.
oh well, its not that bad waking up by a little cutepie giving you a whole lot of kisses. She was so cute this morning, i actyally woke up by her kisses, wonderful.

On with our fun challange over at digis with attitude challenges.
This week we want you to make some raindrops.
What ever you wanna do, as long as there is some raindrops on your creation.

I hade a really tuff one with this challange (hey, isnt that why its called a challange) I got stuck.
Totally, and i dont now why.
This card is my second attempt, and i made it easy for me, i just made a raindrop shaped card.(maybe ill show you my first card later on?, if you wanna see?)

I choosed this cute little tween mermaid, i think thats what got me stomped, my first tought when choosing an image was...yes, that mermaid will be perfect with raindrops, but when thinking, what has mermaids with rain and raindrops to do? hmmm, what was i thinking?.(i think it was that i so loove this image and so badly wanted to play with her ,lol)

Anyways...i love this little mermaid, isnt she just too cute. actyally, to make this tween mermaid was my ide (if i may brag a little?), right Cindy-lynn? and i am so glad that i suggested cindy-lynn to do a little tween mermaid. Cause look at the end result, shes just adorable. Cindy-Lynn...YOU ROCK!
Enough babbeling...

heres my raindrop card...

I made her hair pink...

Some clouds. i painted some crackle paint on the edges...

...and a whole lot of blue glimmer mist.

The withe dots is from some bauble plastic that i painted white and played with,
some flowers and other embellies.

hope you liked it!

have fun!

Hugs bettina!

 So to be in time for the challange today i had to make another quick card..
Glad i realised my mistake before today,lol.

best of 2010?

The stampman is having a really fun challange going on, and i just have to join in, it sounds so fun.

The challange is....

My best craft project of the year 2010.
(wich also is my first crafting year.)

My gosch, how am i ever gonna be able to choose?

there is so many projects to choose from, not that i love them ( i am really selfcritical, and never quite happy with what i do. ofcourse i have had a few good moments,lol) but some of my things have a personal meening or tought to it, thats why i like some of my projects, they meen something special to me.

I wasnt sure how to go about this, or how to think when choosing. can you imagine to just choose 1 project?

First i was going to choose a LO that i did.
Its from my fathers funural, the flower arragement that was on his coffin.
Its a really beautiful layout but it made me so sad, and i want this to be fun, so i choosed this cake instead.

I  think this is one of  my favourites and i had only been crafting for about 6 month when i did this cake.
Its really special to me .

I made it for my daughters 1st birthday.
I think it represents me at that time . I love flowers and at the time i loved pink and girly girl. I love to experiment and are still exploring this whole papercrafting world.

i have only been papercrafting for about 1 year, so there is so much out there that is new to me, and i wanna try and do it all, often all at the same time too.
I always have 3-4 projects going on at the same time,lol.
I get an ide or see something inspiering from some of you blogging friends (thank you all for that) and i just have to put the ide on paper right away.
Some times it works out, but sometimes my ideas ends up a total mess,lol.
I just wish there where 48 hours on a day.

Thank you stamp man for the challange.

hugs bettina.
