Add a sentiment

Morning and hello! Fall is here as it looks and my pain is worse than ever? What is going on? This is supposed to be my good time of the year. Oh well, someday I will have less pain and feel less depressed because of it.

It's time for a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland today and the theme is set to "Add a sentiment". So sentiment/verses should be in focus on your creations.

Our sponsor this week is Crafty sentiments Design and the prize up for grabs is three digis for one lucky winner.

My card is very simple this time as I have to limit everything I do with my arms and hands to a minimum at the moment. I build up the card of spellbinder dies, the swirly one comes from Moa Pyssel. Isn't it lovely? The sentiment die comes from ROX stamps and I have used golden mirriboard from Panduro and white cardstock from Bazill. A golden net "ribbon" from my stash gives an extra bling thing. When I feel better I will probably add a few flowers or something like that to the card, but for now it has to go as clean and simple. :)


Time to lay down for a while and rest. In a few hours will the kids get home from school and then a soccer weekend can take place. How will I manage to handle that I wonder? I should just rest and take it easy not be out in the wet and cold. Well, we'll see about that. First a tournament for the youngest and the day after a game for the older, at the same place.

Take care and feel better than I am.

Love n hugs

Travel or transportation

Morning and hello! Back again with a little creation. This week it's my turn to host the challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. I have chosen the theme of  "travel or transportation". I hope that this will be an easy theme to play along with.

For my card have I used a lovely looking locomotive called Train Engine from Little Miss Muffet stamps. I have coloured with my Letraset markers as you all need to do if you want to play along with us over at PFP. There is both alcohol markers and aquamarkers for you to use.


The card is fairly simple and I have used bright nice colours to compliment the train image. The designer papers are from Jilly Bean Soup. Two different pads, but I can't find the fronts of the the pads. I have also used some glossy accent for the window and the light in the front of the train. A few black card candies and a few die cut clouds. Nice and easy design.


Our sponsor this week is Letraset, that is offering a colouring set off 12 markers. Set 1 is up for grabs. A great and very useful prize don't you think?


Well my friends, it's kind of short today as well. I am in lots of pain still and have to take it easy on the computer use for now. Hopefully will it be better soon. 

Love n hugs

Come fly with me!

Morning and hello! Midweek and time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter. This weeks theme is "Come fly with me". That means we want to see something that can fly on your image, nice and easy I hope. Our challenge blog is filled with inspiration for you to look at.

My shoulders is really acting up again so this week I have gone pre coloured. I have used the sweet image called The fairy and the Wizard. A super sweet image and Veronica have done a smashing job colouring this image up. Isn't it sweet? I have paired it up with some First Edition papers, spring something I think. I only have parts of it left.



I have added some lace and some pretty flowers in pink and white for decorations. All these are from WOC. Some pearls from my stash, as butterfly bodies. Pearl hearts also from WOC. A few butterflies made with a MS punch. The rose lace is also from WOC if I remember right. Some glitter to the Wizards magic and the fairy wings.

Challenge prize badge

As always the Paper Shelter is sponsoring with either three digis if you play with a different brand and a $30 gift voucher if you play with any TPS product. It would be really nice to see some more TPS images used in this challenge. A gift voucher worth $30 is quite many images from the Shelter.

Sweet and short today to help my shoulders heal. I see you back here soon hopefully!

Fairies and sentiment

EDITED: Ops! Ended up in draft! So here we go, new try

Morning and hello! Today is my last inspirational post for the AUD sentiment team. - Sad - I need to step down from this lovely team to make time for my kids and their homework. There is also the soccer club where both me and my partner has take on tasks for the youth section of the club, and then there is my poor pen pals that have started to wonder where my letters are. On top of that I have my work training after many years of being home with all my illnesses. I so want to get back to working again and just not only spend my time crafting even if it's great fun. So a little less team work with my beloved crafting and some more family time, or maybe I should say soccer time. LoL

I want to thank both of "Ginnies" and Julie for having me on the team the last year. It have been fun. I have learned to use more sentiments on my cards, not only the ones for AUD sentiments. I have worked with lots of images from companies that I probably wouldn't have picked myself which have put me out of my comfort zone and I have learned from that as well. So a big thank you to the three of you and to the rest of the AUD team and good luck to the new line up. (see I have a few soccer lines...) ;)

So here it is, my final card for AUD sentiments. I have used Hot Chocolate fairy from Sweet Pea stamps. A fun and detailed image to colour. I went on with the pink and brown theme for this card, but had a hard time deciding if it was going to be a Christmas card or birthday card. It landed on neither one. The sentiment say something like "a balanced diet is chocolate in both hands". Now we're talking hot chocolate, but that's chocolate too right? The sentiment is from Bildmålarna if I remember correctly.

The card without the glitter and gloss.

The designer papers are from First Edition I think and I have no clue from what pad. I have lost the front of it. I think that might have been given away to my oldest school. I clean out once ever second year and give the stuff to them to use. I get more room and the kids can have some fun with expensive papers and stamps. A win win as I get to buy new stuff. LoL


With gloss and glitter look

I have kept the card very simple because, well I kind of hit designers block. I had a plan when starting this card a few weeks ago but didn't know how to get where I wanted to go and ended up doing nothing. You know how it can be from time to time. A wooden heart shaped button with some scrappers floss is used to add a little interest. Also some glitter is used on the wings of Miss fairy Chocolate. For the chocolate cup I have used some glossy accent to add a tiny more bit of interest. On the Aud sentiment blogg you can see how it looks with out the glitter and gloss. I decided late last night to add this stuff.

Sponsoring us this challenge is Sweet Pea Stamps. Do go and check out all their fabby images. Lots to chose from and the images will keep you busy as there is many with lots of details to them. So if you're up for a challenge that's the place to go.

Sketch time

Morning and hello! Time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers today. It's sketch time and this time it looks like this. Such great sketch to work with so do give it a try.

For about a year ago or so Bildmålarna closed down their business and I still miss them. Around that time I did colour this sweet little image up. It's very pale in the colours and I have used lots of glitter for the wings and some glossy accent to give a feeling of dew drops around the little fairy. 


The designer papers are from Victoria design. The paper flowers are prima's shabby chick. Button from an old shirt. Pearls from my stash. Have used a corner punch and a MS punch for the border. Some scrappers floss for the bow and to mark off the green dp. Maybe I should have added a butterfly or something to the card as well, but maybe later. For now it will be like this. :)

School is starting today for the kids, so soon we will be back to our normal tired selfs. Hopefully it will be a smooth back to normal period. I am feeling stressed about having to kids with homework already, but we get there somehow.

Sponsoring this challenge two lovely companies. Firstly we have DigiStamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in the online store.
