A Bildmålarna card

Hi there and hope you have a great weekend. Really tired today and tons of pain as it has been a busy day. A party for Willy and his friend has taken place today and 20 kids makes lots of noises. I am so pleased it is all over now.

This little card of mine has been laying around for a while and I have not gotten to it to photograph it until now. Well, I hardly got a photo from it at all today either buy it is the last chance to enter the dt call of Bildmålarna today at midnight and as I used their sketch I thought I give it a try.

Sorry about the crappy photo, take in ordinary lamp light, I'll retake the photo tomorrow (Sunday).


New photo but ain't sure it's any better...

The images masked together is coloured with my Letraset markers and I have used a few Bildmålarna designer papers as well. To match it all up I've used some flowers from WOC, pearl string from ROX stamps, pearls from Bunny Zoe and some butterflies made with a MS punch.

Ok, very short today, but I am so tired and my back is killing me so a big warm fire and maybe a good movie is what I will spend my evening with, and maybe one or two painkillers. :)

Love n hugs
Marie

Sketch time!

Hi and welcome back to my little corner. Colds going around in the house again so everything is very slow here. This time it's me and Philip, the youngest. I'm also starting to wonder if my crafting cat has got it as well. He is both coughing and sneezing. LoL Just kidding, well he is doing all that but he has spend a few hours chasing a poor youngster cat that came for a visit yesterday, and they was tumbling around under our porch. And my crafting cat Tage is actually allergic to dust and some plants even if they are almost frozen by now. But it looks really funny when both me, Philip and Tage is sneezing at the same time.

It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake weekly again. And we have now come to the end of November and that means it's time for a new sketch. So much fun! I love a good sketch and I kind of go to the little library of sketches over at Papertake Weekly when I don't have any inspiration or clue of what to do. I take a look there and always find something I can use to get my creativity going. So take a look at the new fabby sketch and put it to use, or do like I, use the sketch library found on the extra sketch page. For my card I have used the new sketch with number #85 I think. Love it!


Ok, when everybody is busy making Christmas cards I have to make plenty of boy's birthday cards. This week is no exception. One of my nephews had his birthday the other day and his passion is sports, dogs and being outside. However, they can't have any dog in their house as he is terrible allergic to them. They had to give up their rottweiler Jetz, but he is living the good days over at my parents place now. My nephew can at least see him during the summer when they can spend more time outside together. So this card is especially made for him and I even got the perfect image for it from the PaperShelter. It's called My cute Rottweiler and that is probably not what you would call a rottweiler in the first sight, but they are an amazing breed when taken care of the right way. Friendly, big teddy bears that loves their family.

My image is coloured up using my Letraset family markers and it matches, well at least some of the dp's from My Minds Eye that I used. They are from the pad called Fine and Dandy, True blue. Love all of those pads and almost always ending up using them for my boy's cards. I used some alpha stickers to spell out the name of my nephew and put a big "4" in the star as it is how old he is now. And I couldn't make a doggy card with out using one of my fabby bone charms. Some orange twine is also used together with some card candy to give some extra little details to my creation. The colours look a bit bright on the card but IRL if wasn't as bad. LoL

So come on and play with us over at Papertake Weekly this week and show what you can do. Plenty of great inspiration from the team is to be seen there.

Love n hugs
Marie

Clean and Simple it is

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world this lovely Monday. Hope you had a great start of your week and that the rest of it will continue at the same path. It's challenge time over at Crafty Card Makers again. I bet you have been wondering what you will come up with for this weeks challenge I bet. Well, I better tell you then. Clean and Simple it is. CAS cards are our thing the coming two weeks. Cards with lots of white space and very little decorations. I believe this is the first time I have manage to make something that can actually count as clean and simple. Much harder to make a good looking CAS card than you ever think. I dare you to try it! LoL

So my card feature an image from my beloved The Paper Shelter. Love those image from the botton of my heart, truly. Anyway, back to the card. My dear Father Christmas is coloured with my Letraset family and I am so pleased with how the red came out this time. Especially on the chimney. Wonder what colours I used? LoL 

Back to business and my card. It's coloured on some kind of Copic paper I think. I am still trying to find the perfect replacement for the wonderful heavyweight paper that Letraset used to sell. I love it because it's not shiny and it has a bit of a surface on it that isn't so glossy. Glossy kills the colours as they mutate in my way of seeing it. They are not as bright as they normal are. I shut up now and keep talking about the card instead, sorry! For my sentiment did I use a stamp from YouDo and blinged it up a little. Couldn't just leave it like that, could I ? Thought so. I did cut a snowflake from the wonderful collection from Joy crafts. Superb looking flake isn't it? I added a blingstone to the centre of that to. When all that was done I couldn't help myself so I used my scoringboard from Martha S, you know and made a line all the way around the card to add a little extra to it. I added a dark red backing panel as well to keep the card together with the other red parts. I like it but I feel it's something missing, but I can't think of what it can be. 

Sponsors for this challenge is 
DI'S DIGISTAMPS 
with a $10 GIFT VOUCHER


 winner will recive a £10 voucher for their store, 
you can spend this online, or if you're lucky enough to see them at a show!  

Well I think this is enought from me for today. So I see you when I can. Busy trying to get my life in order with out fighting the system. Guess if it shows that it's election year here in Sweden? Eventhing is getting upgraded and change just so they can say that we don't have many home with longterm illnesses or are unemployed etc. I am one out of many, many more how is so tired fighting all this and noone understand how it is to live with crappy illnesses that doesn't kill you but make worth less whatever you try to do when it comes to working, getting the union working for you. It's such a joke, not even my worst enemy would deserve this.

Christmas is coming

Morning everyone, running a bit later here today. Yesterday didn't turn out how I had it planed so late again with this post. Really sorry about that. Well, I am here now and I do hope that things will settle soon. For the moment I am having big problems with my concentration and to keep it going. It's just one of those things that comes together with not feeling totally well. I'm having a bit of a slight relapse with my fibromyalgia. I have not learned to pinpoint and recognize them yet to be able to stop them in time. Well, each time I hope it will get a little easier. At least I am not in that much pain.

Well this week over at the Paper Shelter we have a new, fun and easy challenge for you. We have the theme of Christmas is coming and by the look of my card is gone too. :) I am so in love with this image. The Santa looks perfect and I wonder who all the gifts that he is sleeping on was for? Is there someone who has been naughty instead of nice this year? LoL


Anyway, I used my Letraset markers to colour him and then paired the lovely image up with some designer papers from Maja Design. I believe that pad is from last year and I have kind of been holding on to it. The papers are all stunning and it's hard to cut into them just because of it. I have been spending "some" time looking through all my stuff and I think I have enough designer papers to last me a lifetime. I really need to sort everything out and give some of it way. The kids at school can use it and have some fun. The more crafters the better I think. Young and old. I might even take some of it up to the childrens ward at the hospital. They might need something to cheer them up. I have to think about that and try to get my craft room sorted somehow.

Ok, here I go again losing control over my writing. LoL Back to the card. I followed the sketch from CLP, their last one. I am so sorry to see that challenge go as it is really some fabby inspiration from that team. Always the most amazing creations and stunning colouring. I flipped the sketch to suit my image a bit better. Added some pearl string from ROX stamp and the fabby "God Jul" die is from them as well. Did some diecutting and got a few Christmas trees from my Magnolia die. A little cluster of flowers, and some pearls in the corner. Flower soft as trim on Dear old Mr Santas hat and jacket.

As always we have our fabby gift voucher up for grabs if you play with our lovely TPS brand. Playing with another brad gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice. Pretty nice that too, isn't it? And do pop by our challenge blog, my team has done some smashing cards and I you'll find plenty of inspiration over there.

Giving thanks or thank you

Good afternoon and welcome back for my second post of the day. I am so pleased to be one of the guest designer for Papertake Weekly, you have no idea just how much I enjoy being a part of this challenge blog for this period. To follow our "giving thanks or thank you" theme this week, I AM the most grateful for this chance. So a big thank you for having me. :)

My olderst brother always says you should start everyday with felling grateful. First for yourself and who you are, then you spend some time feeling grateful for those close to you like family and very close friends. Then you end that moment with feeling grateful for your "outer circle of friends and acquaintances" that comes your way like the cashier at the grocery store for example. Doing this every day will give you a chance of feeling and knowing that you have a pretty good life after all. It should also give some awareness of what you can do to improve as a person and how you feel about others. I did those exercises each and every day for a few months last spring and that was a time of feeling high of life. Magical experience, but after a while I started to feel that I know all of this and in just a few weeks lost the feeling of it all. I don't do this every day now either, but I do from time to time and it's such good way of looking at life. It only takes about 15 minutes per day, and for me it was a bit of energy boost to know that life is good. Give it a try, gratefulness is something the world really needs today.

Ok, maybe I have gone to far with this part of thankfulness, but I actually believe that there is too little of that merchandise in this world. The tiny little word Thanks and a little smile can change someones dull, grey and lousy day. Give it a try, just for today, smile to someone that you don't know, hold the door open for someone when you're entering a store and say hello. It's just so simple and it will take you far much longer and higher than you ever thought. Just try it, ok? Well that's my kind of thanks giving. We don't celebrate it here in Sweden, so why not make a new version of it? I know I will and with that doing it will take me where I wanna be...


Ok then, time for why you are here. My card for the challenge over at the Paper Take Weekly. Theme giving thanks or thank you. After what I wrote above here you will never in a million year believe how much trouble I had with this challenge. I saw cards going in orange and brown with strange fruits or what ever it is in those baskes, and I thought oh no, I can't do that. And I couldn't. LoL But thankfully ( :) ) the theme said thank you as well. Got a tiny bit easier then. But still hard, so thinking cap on and suddenly a bit of shabby chic thoughts showed up in my little brain. Marie, you got about a ton of papers from Panduro that you nerver use, take the chance to use some of them and make a thank you card without and coloured image, just you and the designer papers. And that is very I landed with this card. And I plan to make some more of those as I think they can be useful from time to time.

Anyway, I used some spellbinder dies, some MFT dies and an alphabetic one from Tim Holtz. Can live without those can you? Then dived right through my pile of Panduro papers that I thought I needed for a long time. They are nice and good quality and all that but I find them hard to work with and making good looking cards with, so I am grateful I got it together this time. I used an really old sketch from CLP that is sadly closing down after this challenge. I love the inspriation you get from that team, it makes me a bit more brave in my creating. Anyway I added a "curtain" at the top and put a bow on it. It doesn't show that well on this photo but the high top part is laying flat and the wavy edge is raised on foamdots. The spellbinder panel is also raised on foarm dots but now as hight. Gives the card a little depth. I used two different papers from this old Tilda pad and it's all done in shabby chic style. I could had added some whitewash paint on as well but for today it's ok. Some roses from WOC, ribbon from Panduro and pearls from Bunny zoe makes my creation whole.

If any of you actually read all of this from me today, I am the most impressed and not to forget I am really GRATEFUL you did. Hope I have atarted a thought somewhere within you, which can help you to grow as a person, maybe not today or tomorrow, but the day after that, who knows?

Love n hugs
Marie

Check it out!

Morning everyone and welcome to my first post of the day. I am starting the challenge week of with two cards for Passion for Promarkers new theme Check it out! We want to see some check- plaids- or gingham on your creation this week. It shouldn't be any trouble. There is plenty of them out there in the crafting world.

As most of you know who follow me regulary I have two boys that is nuts for football / soccer and even if we are in the middle of November by now there is soccer friends having their birthdays so today I show off two more soccer cards. God it's getting hard to get any kind of variation on them now. I've lost track of how many I have done this year.

Anyway, I thought that some check designer papers would be a nice change to all the dps with soccer balls and shoes and what ever it has been and for some reason the checks goes well with all sporty images. LoL Of course my images is coloured with my Letraset Markers Family and since the cards are for boys I kept the embellishments low.
The first card is showing of an image from our sponsor this week, The digi boutique. It's from a set of four called Fun time Dan. And you have the chance of winning a gift voucher worth £10. Such lovely prize to look forward to. A real joy to colour and I kind of gave him a look of Bayern München team clothes but I didn't the whole player go red so, a bit modified. :) Designer papers are from YouDo and Magnolia. Good to use up some old stuff to. I really need to do that otherwise my boys has to start sharing room and that wouldn't be fun for them. :) I used a bunch of die cuts for my cards like the photo corners and the little rectangle made with spellbinder to tell the age of the friend that is getting this card.


The second card is made in the colours of our local team, well almost. They have black and yellow in their team clothes. From the beginning they had yellow shirts and black shorts, now they are totally back with yellow details. So once again I did some modification to the clothing as I didn't want to go totally black either, and I didn't want a dark card so grey scale colouring it was. I love that technic. It's great fun to work with only greys and I should be done more but for some reason it feels a bit dull when it comes to making birthday cards. LoL For the decorations here have I used a few soccer buttons that I cut down so they are flat and I also used some alpha pearls to write out the name of the friend. A big nice "7" from a sheet of alphas is also giving some detail to the card.


Ok this was the first post of the day, stay tune as later on in the afternoon I have my new card for the Papertake weekly up as well and then it's something totally different from all my sporty cards. 

Love n hugs
Marie

Snow and ice

Hello and g'day to you all. It's Tuesday and I have a brand new creation for you to look at. It happens that I was lucky enough to get picked as a guest designer for Papertake Weekly, so I will be spending my Tuesdays blogging cards for that wonderful challenge blog that I have been following since I started my own blog. There was three of them I always took part in: Passion for Promarkers, Papertake Weekly and Just Magnolia when that was around. At this point I am a member of the PFP team and now I get to guestdesign for the Papertake Weekly challenge blog. I am really happy, humble and happy again for this chance. And I feel so blessed and thankful for this chance.  Thank you ever so much for bringing me on to the team for the coming three months. I hope to make you all pround and myself  not least. I feel it will be a change making cards for the same challenge every week, but I also feel the joy it will bring and hopefully it will help me get some better routines to my days, instead of just sitting in the sofa sorting out all the photos for the kids. LoL

So this weeks theme is very fitting for this period of time and it is snow and ice - blue and cold. Nice theme isn't it? So luckly for me I had an image coloured up in the fitting colours and just needed to get it down to card which was a lot harder than I had planed for. Lol However, one of the best things with the Papertake Weekly challenges is their little library of sketches they have on an extra page. I really love that. I go there all the time when I have no inspiration to get a kick start and I did so this time as well. I started off with sketch #73, took away an element and got the card done. Unfortunatly the weather has been horrible this weekend so it was not easy to get a good photo of this card. Anyway I have done it and I so happy I could find the time to fit it in as I have been away for a few days. Got back a day early as Willy started to feel better with his cold.

Mats will be home later on tonight from Istanbul and it will be good to be two adults in the house again. But don't tell anyone, It has been great being alone even if it was over at my parents house. Kind of like the old days, I loved that. Times like this gives me flashbacks to when I was young living at home with mum and my brothers. And when I had it, I took my bike and rode it up to my grannys apartment and stayed there for a few days. Best time of my life! She was my best friends and I will miss her forever, even if I know she is with me every single day. ;)

Maybe I should say something about my card as well. A bit of lack of time and I still ended up with this little creation of mine. Two Magnolia images merged together for a little winterscenery and coloured it with my Letraset family. Then I used some of the really stunning and high quality designer papers from Bildmålarna. I love the colours of those papers. I also used some silver colored corrugated paper as backing for my image. Some adorable snowflakes from Joy Crafts bought at Moa Pysell. For my little flower cluster did I also make a little backing page with some snowflakes and then added the lily lookalike flowers. Added a few pearl stars in to that and topped it of with a snowflake silver charm and some silver sprays to that. Edwin and Jasper has also gotten a few pearl stars to keep them company. Gemstones in blue comes from Bo Bunny and I had them for ages. The time will come for everything, doesn't it?

Ok, I probably should shut up by now so I better do that. But I see you soon again. Lots of crafting will be going on here the coming weeks busy, busy as I will soon start school again I hope. They just seem to be able to find a place for us to be. And this is a big ecducational company that has these kind of troubles. Just amazing. For a full control of the challenge, theme and the rules of the blog, why don't you drop by and have a look for yourself.

Love n hugs
Marie

A little different paper piecing

Good after noon everyone! Hope you had a great start of the week and are ready for our new challenge over at Crafty Card Makers. The theme of the week(s) is PAPER PIECING. Fun to do from time to time, however this time I gave it all a little twist. :)

You who follow me regular knows that I have been spending a lot of time this year making soccer / football cards and I am affraid I am not done with that theme yet. However after making five or six of those cards I needed a change from what I was doing. After all there are only a limited supply of sporty soccer paper to find. I had a "new" sweater prepared for this guy in a lovely blue striped version. The my olders come a long and says : - He can't look that way, that is not a real team sweater. So time to rethink what I was doing and I look through my dies and put them in some order. During that time I found of Joanna Sheens new patchwork dies, and guess what came to mind?


Yep that's right. One of the dies is perfect for making soccer balls! Took a while to cut all the pieces but if the theme is paper piecing, then you take one for the team how to speak. So I made a ball used another die to cut it into a round shape and then cut some stripes of grass to give Mr Soccer player some ground to put his feet on. I also coloured the sweater in a nice red colour, there is plenty of read teams out there, Bayern München for example and a favourite player of my kids is Ribéry. Even got the number right even if the shorts isn't a total match. It would have been to much red. LoL My little guy is coloured with my Letraset family and I got to try a new way of paper piecing even if it's not the first way you might think of. But as I have covered the whole base of my card, I hope that it still will count as paper piecing. After all it's all about building a pattern with the help of papers.

We are sponsored this time as well and this time we have some smashing prizes up for grabs. Take a look at this and for more information, go to the Crafty Card Makers blog. 

 

Ok then. This is all from me for today. It has been a few long days with my partner Mats away. He has spend a few days in Istanbul, Turkey with his job and will be back later on tonight. Thank goodness that me and the boys could spend a few days at my mum's place. It was good for us all. :)

Winter fun

Hi and welcome to the Mid week post of mine. A bit late, but better late than never I hope. Still running behind with everything since the water leak last week. But we're getting there and soon we don't have to boil our water anymore I hope. Let me tell you it takes time. I am one happy mum knowing I don't have any toddlers anymore. Makes it so much easier. Philip was not old when this happened with the main water supply last time. It was no fun at all. It's not now either, but easier to handle. LoL

Ok then. My TPS card for this week challenge theme Winter fun. I am one of those horrible persons that really love snow, ice and cold. I feel kind of free of some kind when it's time for this season. The nature looks stunning covered in snow and I don't have to worry about thunder storms and that makes my life so much easier. I've got the massive fear of thunder and it doesn't even have to be near me. So more snow and ice please. :)


 If the weather permits I try to retace the photos tomorrow as these are shifting to much in colour for my own liking. :)

One of the first things, well one of the best things I remember from starting school was learning to skate and I still love it even if I can't do as much of it as I used to with my joints putting an end to it. Still love to do it from time to time and my kids does do. So therefor I picked this wonderful image to use for our winter fun theme, Fantasy on Ice. Such a pretty little ice skater she is!


I decided to make another easel card as I love to make them, but hate photographing them. Grr all the time. I do need to learn this and I do need to get a better camera. I miss my old Canon EOS  but it's playing tricks on me, something with the connection to the memory card, work sometime and not at all other times.


I paired Miss Fantasy with some really old designer papers from Magnolia and started to decorate the card and kind of never stopped. Well, I had fun and it was really relaxing even if I missed the dead line totally for the challenge over at TPS. But it was worth it. I am really pleased with my card for once and it was so relaxing to make this as a change from all soccer cards I have to make in the coming week. Well, only two more. I think I need a new birthday theme set for next year for my kids' friends. LoL

So come on and have some winter fun with us over at the Paper Shelter. My team has made some really lovely creations for you to find inspiration from. And don't forget playing with our brand (TPS) you have a shot at winning our voucher worth $30. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice.

Geek week

Morning everyone! Hope life treats you kind. Feeling ok today, a bit tired but ready to get on with what ever the day brings.

Today it's Tuesday again and what does that mean? Oh yes! It's time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. A new fun theme called Geeks - images wearing glasses is what you get from us this week. A really fun theme with tons of charming inspiration from the team. You really should pop over to the PFP blog and check it out.

I've had this image from The Paper Shelter called Learning is fun coloured for a long time now and finally got to use her. I was looking for the right designe papers to  go with her. These ones used here is from Echo Park and the digital collection called Paper and Glue. There was even a dp having glasses on it. My lucky day! ;)

I used the latest sketch from Papertake Weekly as I liked it. My second creation with it. I would get lost without the lovely sketches out there. My image is of course coloured with my Letraset family. I kept the design really simple without any extra decorations. Only a few pearls to tie it all together somehow.

We have a sponsor for this challenge as well and that is our dear friends over at Letraset offering a 6-pack of flexmarkers for one lucky winner. I wouldn't mind that prize myself. :)

Ok then, see you back tomorrow when I have a new creation up for the Paper Shelter.

Love n hugs
Marie

More halloween / birthday card

Good evening to you all! After a long and strange weekend with lots of parties: three ones for my youngest and one for my olderst, his own. LoL Discovered that we had a water leak in the kitchen. Something connected to the refrigerator. Hopefully it's not too bad, but we can't see how far under the floor the water has gone. It seems to be a "sneaking up on" water leak that has been going on for a while. Drop by drop how to speak. When we finally got the kitchen to work again and a heat fan going there, then the big waterconduit breaks and 8000 house holds, schools, daycare etc is out of water. Jippi! Sometimes life is fun. In the middle of this we had a party for Willy who turns 7 tomorrow, only the washing-up after around 20 people to do, without water. I was really thinking of bringing it all outside and let the rain soak everything. However after about 24 hours without water it's now back but we will have to boil all water before we use it. Oh well, one of those weeks. I hope Mats doesn't have anything he needs washed as he will be going to Istanbul, Turkey in the end of week with his work. No washing allowed if we don't do it on high temp and it's not many clothes that want to be boiled. LoL

Well after this long messy story I thought I share the card Philip gave his friend and next door neighbour for her big day. I used the sweetest whitch around from the Paper Shelter and this is also one of the cards that I had to remake because of the pawprints from my crafting cat. As the birthdays is around this time of the year they all are Halloween parties. So even if I don't like Halloween or making cards for it, I "need" to make a few each year. Not the scariest ones but still, Halloween. :)


I coloured her with my Letraset family and some pens as I do from time to time. Willy didn't like the purple I put around the image but it symbolizes the night for me. Was in no mood to colour it all in and make it too dark. LoL I have once again used a few digital designer papers from  Echo park to make my card. I love the little softer Halloween colours to this set. Soft and nice. The dp under the image is actually covered with spiders as well, but I managed (without wanting too) to cover them all up. The inside is covered with this paper and some sentiment and a greeting that is between Ebba and Philip. I used some black stickles on the punched flowers and picked fence glitter on the roses. A piece of lace, pearls and punched branches with a MS punch is used to decorate the whole thing. Nice and simple. It doesn't have to be more when it is for a five year old I hope. :)

Love n hugs
