Almost black and white...

Hi all! I hope you are all well? It is time for a new challenge at Anya Ink! This fortnight we would like you to use "Black, White and one other colour of your choice". Nice, don't you think? I can't wait to see what you all come up with! The DT have made gorgeous creations... If you have time, take a look, you won't be disappointed :-)!

Bonjour à toutes! Vendredi, donc nouveau challenge d'Anya Ink. Cette semaine, "noir et blanc et UNE couleur de votre choix"! Mes collègues ont fait des choses superbes, n'hésitez pas à y jeter un oeil, vous ne serez pas déçues :-)!

As for me, I wanted to make a different type of card. Some of you made gorgeous criss-cross pocket cards while I was away on holiday and I thought I would try.

And now you are thinking... she wanted to show us her collection of punches! :-)
Oui, je sais ce que vous pensez, j'en ai utilisé des perforatrices...
And the image, the pretty Lily...

Yes, I know, if you see this post, you may be surprised... It is scheduled of course, I am still away on holiday, with no computer, so no chance to leave a comment on Squirrel's blog to say happy birthday... No comment on Squirrel's blog, but a post on mine :-)! Have a great birthday, Squirrel!

Bye... for now

Hi all! I hope you are all well and do not suffer from the heat too much! I just wanted to write a few words first to apologise to those of you I did not have time to visit in the past few days (I have been super busy at work!) and also to tell you that I am going on holiday (in the South West, not really far from Spain), leaving on Saturday (though nothing is ready yet :-)!). I will be away for almost 3 weeks... without a computer/ internet connection, so I will not be able to visit you! I am going to miss you and will get back to you as soon as I can! My Anya Ink DT card will be posted tomorrow but then, you won't really hear from me... Keep having fun making gorgeous cards and talk to you soon!
Delphine xx

Un petit coucou pour vous dire que je pars en vacances pour 3 semaines sans ordinateur/internet et donc je ne pourrai pas vous rendre visite... Vous verrez ma carte pour Anya Ink demain, mais après, pas beaucoup de nouvelles de moi... Je penserai bien à vous, continuez à faire de magnifiques cartes et je viendrai les voir dès mon retour!
