Happy Hellos!

My name is Anna and I'm a Pole living recently in Airdrie (near Calgary in Canada), hopeless in love with paper. Usually sitting in my studio between 8pm and midnight, if my energy lasts that long after another day with a toddler Jakob and a baby Lisa. I love to share my crafts with you, please be my guest!

Bunch of Birthdays/Urodziny za urodzinami

Hi again,
The months April and May are crazy for me regarding Birthdays and Names-days (very Polish), at least dozen of them! So don't be surprised, if you see bunch of cards in the next posts. For example in this one, I will show you four of them. I can't tell, who will get them, because there is no surprise for them anymore, but I will mention, why this person is so important to me. I know, they are also reading my blog ;)

The first card goes to someone,  I love to spend time with. 
The card is meant for three following challenges:
-ICS #60
-Simon Says Stamp (distressing)
-Think INK #17 (a book cover for inspiration): I have chosen "Lost memories of Jane Austen". When I bought this book, I wanted make a card matching the cover and give it to someone for B'Day.

Maybe you can see on the big picture the special effect: crackle accent on the roses. I have seen that on my blogs and as a vintage style fan I had to do it on my projects.I love it! Please see below the close up. Isn't it funky?

The next card for today will be entered for two challenges and the lucky person, who will get it, is a great listener!
-2 Sketches 4 You (to the sketch)
-Flourishes (Photo inspiration)
The design papers come from My Mind's Eye and until now I couldn't cut them, because they are soooo gorgeous! Don't you think?
The same challenges are used by making card no. 3. This Birthday card will land in hands of a person, I have worked with long time: I learned a lot from this person and my work was always appreciated!
I admire your patience for reading this long post! This is the last card for today: for a new challenge I found on Internet- Mojo Monday #132. This card will arrive in the mail box of a person, I had a lot of fun in my childhood with. When I think adventure, I have to think about him (I can say "him", because the card is very masculine as you can see):
Probably you recognize my favorite design papers Graphic45. A propos: Lena, I have something for you, guest what? Hahahaha!
Thanks for your visit and I appreciate your time,
