Godelieve Tijskens is doing it for the BIRDS

Here we are again, another month another challenge this time from another very talented designer whom I met through Chris a little over 3 years ago when I first started blogging.

Godelieve is from Belguim and not only is she a busy mum and a creative artist she is also a talented photographer and has used one of her photos which she took yesterday morning of this gorgeous Robin in 2 of her Artist Trading Cards she has created for us this month.

Godelieve also sent us the picture of her Robin and gives all our lovely members and readers permission to use it in their art work or on their Christmas cards.
Thank You Godelieve. xxx

Her Bio

My name is Godelieve Tijskens.
I’m living in a small village in Belgium, with my husband. We have two grown sons. One of them needs special care, and is living with us. He takes a lot of our time.

After doing several other crafts, such as knitting, embroidery and sewing, I started making cards.

I love to use stamping, several styles and techniques but often my cards are quick and easy. Distress inks, Ecoline inks and heat embossing are some of my favorite things in card making these days.

I’m a design team member of Art Journey and Darkroom Door.
My work has been published in Craft Stamper Magazine and Art Specially Magazine.

I also like photography, sometimes I use my photos on cards.
I show my work on my stamping blog

and my photography blog


Pop on over to Godelieve's blogs, you will be glad you did.... you will be so inspired and her work is top notch.

Someone else wanted to get in the picture today I wonder who that could be???

Her first time she met the snow.

If you are wondering why I have put a pic of Mimi right in the middle of Godelieve's Bio and challenge its because I uploaded it and tried to move it BUT couldn't and then tried to delete it BUT your stuck with her... can anyone guess what she is thinking??? Photo taken by Jordie my GGD.

Back to the challenge.... here is Godleieve's lovely Robin pic for you plus her fab Artist Trading Cards that are up for grabs.

Here Godelive has used both Crafty Individual and Darkroom Door stamps plus one of the cuttlebug folders in her creations.

A huge thank you now for Heather our November guest desiger.

This is how bad it has been ......I have not even been well enough for my pals Chris and Debbie to visit me and be able do Crafty stuff with them....SORRY Chris and Deb.... I will make it up to you when I am out of my sick bed. I have lost some weight though so something good has come out of this hahaha.
