Merry Week

Hello Everyone!
It's been a really a great week for me. I am happy to welcome the first three followers of my blog: Sid from Harpies Crafty Corner, Viv from Daizy-Mae's Crafty Blog, and Heidi Weaver from Stampin Along With Heidi. Thank you for joining my blog!
On Wednesday I was selected as one of the winners for The Card Concept Challenge #16 - Create a Wedding Card. I've never created a wedding card so far. However, this time inspiration was so beautiful from the members of DT that I succeeded to make one that I dared to submit. I'm grateful to Sue for choosing my card.
As most of the cardmakers I am also a shopoholic for stamps and other supplies. And this week received the first order from Altenew by Tasnim Ahmed. I waited for several of her wonderful sets to be back in stock to SSS, but then decided to order directly. Despite the International shipping my order arrived incredibly fast. Thank you, Tasnim, for your beautiful stamps and a hand-written note, this is very pleasant.
I didn't wait for too long to start playing with Altenew stamps. Here is the first card I made using Sohcahtoa set:





This card was inspired by Festive Friday Challenge #38. This challenge invited to use black, white and kraft for a Christmas card.


I used only triangles to create my card and I will enter it also to Addicted to CAS #45 Challenge:


The second card I'd like to share tonight is for Merry Monday #122. Sue is hosting this challenge and asks to use black, gold and silver:


Here is my take on the challenge:




Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend!
