Ribbon and / or lace

Morning and hello! I am back again, second time this week. Now I am here representing the Paper Shelter and our new challenge with the easy peasy theme of "Ribbon and/or lace". It shouldn't be a problem to make a fun creation with that theme, right?

It has been really great getting back to card making again the last couple of days. I just wish that I was a bit faster in my creative process. So fast that I don't get the pains in my back, but hopefully my new traing programme will help sort that, but I guess it will take a few months with good work outs to make a difference.

Anyway, my card for today is made with some old dp's from Pion Design and the new image from the Paper Shelter that is called Bella Vanity Set. It's a bit trick to colour mirrow/glas but this time it turned out ok. I have used my promarkers, a white gel pen, a black outlining pen and some glossy accent to colour it all in. For the nobs on the drawers have I used enamel accent from Rangers.


I wasn't really sure where I was going with this card design and it kind of shows. I added some bits and pieces and then some more, and more and more... Not totally happy about that part but hey I am a bit rusty since it's only the second card in a month or so.

I knew where I wanted my lace to go and managed to fit in a bow tied with a ribbon as well. The lace is really tiny but it's there. I also got a charm on to the card. I need to lower that part of my stash. Metal corners from PY Hobby as well. I love the colour of them, the antique gold. Love it! Ok then, time for me to sign off for today.

Take some time and do something you enjoy!

Love n hugs

Add some bling

Morning and hello! Welcome to another year here with me. I hope all the celebrating has been good and that you have had some time to relax as well. Our celebrations became a bit strange and kind of spontaneous as many in the family became sick in tummy flu and colds. I said to the kids all family has at least one Christmas when you are sick and this time it's our turn. I still remember the time when we (as in me and my brothers) was sick during Christmas. I think I was 8 years old then. It has been a lot of colds going around as well, or we have never gotten rid of them. Today starts the school after the Christmas break and hopefully we will all be well again.

Well then, today is a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and hosting is well me! This time have I gone for the theme of "add some bling". That would be glitter, gemstones, pearls, enamel dots etc.

I've gone "classic" with a buch of flowers both die cut and paper flowers. They are all coated in some glitter glue + some extra dry glitter. All for the sparkle. I have also used two kinds of pearls and some gemstones. A pink ribbon bow and a rose lace to top it all off. The image is from Magnolia and I think it's called Lovely rose Tilda or something like that. I am back again colouring with my Letraset Markers and you have to do that as well to have a chance of this weeks prize which is sponsored by Bugaboo. My designer papers are from Maja Design. I think it's from the collection Vintage Autumn.

Time for me to sign off for today. It's good to be back and it has good to have a break as well. I only wish that the break had been because I choose to not because we have been sick, but it can only get better, can't it?

Love n hugs
Marie

Another Anything goes challenge

Morning and hello! Welcome back to my corner of the world. Today is Wednesday and it's time for the last challenge for the year over at the Paper Shelter. This time we have a theme of Anything goes, and as this is our Christmas break is all of the teamies of their duty when it comes to leave comments for you. So if you get any from us this time, it's a bonus but as always we have the same fabby prizes up for grabs. A chance to win a gift voucher worth $30 if you play with a TPS image and 3 digis of your choise if you play with another brand.

For my card this time have I used the fabby image called Happy  New Year. I have also used a mini kit from Simple stories called just the same: Happy New Year. Fun, fabby and funk with lots of bright great colours. Looks smashing.


Colouring is made with my Letraset markers. I did also colour in the back ground so it might look a bit strange on the photo but it's only the grey markers. I have made some streamers with packet string and the confetti stars are made with glitter and glossy gold card stock. Can it be more New Year's party than that?

Anyway, with this I wish you all the best for the Christmas holidays and a happy New Year if I don't manage to get back here in between Christmas and the New Year.

Love n hugs
Marie

Dies and/or punches

Morning and hello! Today am I show you the last cards for Passion for Promarkers for this year. It's time to show team 1's inspiration cards for our yearly Mega challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. Team 2 showed their cards in the beginning of the challenge. and the rest of us take you over to next year and our new challenge.



I have a bunch of wonderful friends all over the world and if I can and have the chance I make a little smaller cards for them that I can send with my letters. I needed a few more and kind of do two things at the same time I made these for our mega challenge. The images and all of the die cuts are from Lawn Fawn. This time it was so much easier to make the shaker cards. Learning by doing I guess. I was so into it that I even dreamt about making shaker cards. I think I have to make a few more of them. LoL


The designer papers are from Lili Of The Valley / Nit Wit collections. I have a whole bunch of papers left so I better start using them up to make room for new stash. It takes up a lot of space to hoard all the supplies and never use them.

Here is the sponsors once again for this challenge. Remember to have a chance of winning any of the prizes you have to colour your image with Letraset markers.

Well then my friends. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New year! In between the celerations will I and the family spend most of the time in the sports halls around Kalmar playing indoor soccer. Well, I won't be playing but my kids will. I have the food service for them and my Partner will be coaching the younger boy's team. I hope it will be a lot of fun, it normaly is and maybe we get a day or two when we can take it a little more easy and do nothing at all.

Love n hugs

For someone special / Happy New Year

Morning and hello! This is the last challenge from the Winter Wonderland for the year. And the theme is set to "Someone special or happy new year". I made a final Christmas card just because I love making them. My all time favourite cardmaking theme.

However due to an ill cat I had no time to do any colouring this time and used one of the fantastic toppers from Maja design. The dp's are as well from Maja design. It has been a little hard focusing on the card making the last few weeks as we have not been sure if the cat would make it our not. But as it seems now it's his teeth that causes him his trouble and not the failing kidneys. 

So with a bit of luck will be able to stay around for a little longer. Had him to the vet yesterday for surgery, but she decided to hold back on that. So instead of a drunk cat I got home a cat that had been on a spa retreat eating like crazy and lots of cuddles from the vet assistants.:) We'er going back next time to see if we need the surgery and if it's possible to do it then. The infection  could spread to the kidneys if we're unlucky so, that will only be done if we really need too. Keep your paws crossed!


The card is fairly simple and just tons of layer to keep some interest going in the card. Some wood weeders stars from Studio Calico, enamel dots make with the little ranger bottle. Metalic snowflakes from PY hobby and the rose lace from Wild orchid crafts I think. I did use some ice stickle on it and I love how that turened out. 

I have added some letter stickers to the card after I took the photo but the photos turned out even more dull than this so, this is what you get to see. The card is for my cousin and his girl friend and her mum. They have the most smashing cat hotel. I kind of wish I was a cat and could stay there for a week or two. 

Well, thers is some time before my kids come back home from friends so I think I am going to wrap a few of the gifts that I have hidden around the house before they find them. 

A merry Christmas to you all!

Love n hugs
Marie
