Flowers and lots of them. Nice and easy!

Warm Winter Wishes

Hello! New challenge up over at Winter Wonderland. Theme of the week. Warm Winter Wishes. An image wearing warm clothes is what we are looking for this week. Nice and easy we hope.

I so had another image in mind for this challenge, one of my beloved TPS images but I am still having trouble with my PC and the external harddrive and all that comes along when you temporarily move your stuff and don't think it will take so long... There is also still the trouble with my image uploading. Still walking in old chewing gum. :(

Instead of the TPS image I found this little darling from Joanna Sheen. A cute little rabbit that I wanted to have so badly after giving one to a friend. Then it just ended up in my Christmas box to be found as a little treasure the other day. :) Isn't he cute in his oversized sweater? Just the way I like them, well maybe without the Christmas motive then. :) The little mistletoe stamp are also from the same stamp set. The sentiment "God Jul" is from Bildmålarna's collection.


I love my CAS cards at the moment and they save me some time when I can't find what I need for my cards. At the moment is my charger for the camera gone. Need to find that really soon as it's low on battery. I have some gemstones from Anitas. Bought those ages ago when I just had started crafting and they last a lifetime. And look so good as berries here. A piece of twine to ground the little rabbit and sentiment and I was done. 

Sorry once again to my teamies over at Winter Wonderland for being late again with my card. I will get my act together, at least as soon as I have my new room ready. Before that I will probably chase my tail for a bit longer. Tomorrow will we try to finish the roof in the room. In between both my boys soccer trainings. It's a tournament on next weekend for both of them. Woohoo! Indoor and that feels so good when it's raining outside right now and tomorrow there will probably be some snow again. Too bad that my oldest have practise outside late afternoon tomorrow. How fun! ;)

Sponsoring us this week is the lovely



Sorry, I don't know what the prize is.

Well, I bet I see you over at Winter Wonderland and that you will come and join us for this weeks challenge. Now will I go and light the fire so we won't freeze to death in the basement. And a little PS: my partner told me that I had been talking in my sleep last night. Of all the things in the world I have been talking about crochet needles! Apparently I love them. I have had a few crocheting ideas in my head for a while so it's probably not that strange but fun. So maybe I should go down and use one in my collection while I wait for the fire to start up. LoL

Two word sentiment

Morning and hello! What a week I had so far, chasing my tail every single minute but now it soon weekend and I really need that.

I am here to share with you a card made for our second week of the challenge "two word sentiment" over at Aud sentiments. This is yet another birthday card I've made and well. I am not sure about this one. I love the colours and the dps and everything but... Maybe because I had to rush the card fairly much. It has been so much going on here lately and my craft room is still not ready. I have stuff in the whole living room and the TV-room and really no place to sit down to do my creations and then it gets hard to motivate myself. I hope that we will finish the roof later on this week and then in with the new floor so that I can get my stuff into the room again in some kind of order. Can't wait for that but it's going slow, really slow. So much to do, such short days! LoL


The image is called Cupcake Honey and is found over at Scrapper's delight. She's coloured with my Letraset Markers and then paired up with my NitWit/LOTV dp's. They are so lovely and colourful. And easy to find as most of my dp's are stashed away. Didn't thought it would take so long to finish my room. LoL As decorations have I used a doily and some "e-dots" that I got from my blogging buddy Annelie. A border punch from somewhere is used to cut one of the panels with. Letter stickers from Panduro to say "Happy Birthday Elin" in Swedish.


Well, I think this is all for today. I am really tired and it's quite painful in my back at the moment, end of the week you know. I see you tomorrow again with a new creation for the Winter Wonderland.

Love n hugs

Gingham, plaids and checks

Hello and good morning and all of that! Hope your doing fine and enjoying your week so far. Just letting you know that we have a new challenge up over at Passion for Promarkers and the theme

Gingham, plaids or checks


How does that sounds for a challenge? Nice and easy I hope. So use either or more on your creation. Colour with your Letraset Markers and then come and play with us. This week we are sponsored by the Digi Stamp Boutique, and the prize is a voucher worth £10 to spend in the store. How great isn't that?

Here is a snap shot of my card. It shows baby Edwin from Magnolia. Of course coloured with my Letraset Markers. He is paired up with som lovely dps from NitWit / Lili of the Valley. It's a combo from Pastel Dream and Up in the air, I think the pads are called.

The decorations is only made with two small paper punches in two sizes from Woodware. The sentiment is made with two kinds of alphabets from Panduro. Nice and easy for a little kid turning two.

Love n hugs
Marie

Girly

Hi and welcome to my corner of the world. I am having big problems with my internet today or maybe it's the computer as everything is running really slow.

We have a new theme up over at the Paper Shelter today and it's girly. We would love to see girly stuff like pink, lace, pearls, charms etc. Thinks that is typical girly.

Well, speaking of girly I have used a bit less girly image for my card this week, but it doesn't stop my card from being covered in girly stuff. The image used is called The Valkyrie. For some reason I have not been able to use her before but today I thought it was a good idea, for a girly theme. LoL Girl power?


To decorate the card I have used some pink grey dp's from Maja design, lace, flowers and pearl strings. The flowers are covered in white gesso and some lose glitter. Surprise! :) Sometimes it's just plain fun to add lots of stuff and hopefully it turns out ok. If it did this time, it's up to you to decide.

I will keep this short and hopefully it will post at least but no picture will load at the moment and I don't have the energy to sit here more today. One more days work then some rest...
