Anything goes as long as it's Christmas

Good evening and hello! This is going up a bit later than I thought. Got caught up once again, the cat have been in some kind of fight and have a wound that needed to get cleaned. Took a while to get that fixed. Let's just hope that he doesn't need any meds for it. His brother is still lost and I have begun to give up the thought of him coming home again. He is so missed by us all. :(

We have an "anything goes" over at the Winter Wonderland this week and we're sponsored by Michele R Design and that's why my card is made all in the lovely digital paper and element pack called "Falling snowflakes". I have used three of the lovely design papers as well as one of the toppers and a bow.


Some die cuts is used for the circles. All are from Spellbinders. A few flowers from WOC and I am Roses. Lots of glitter glue in silver and some on the flowers in frosted lace, The card stock is a mix of left overs, colours used is a nice teal/blue colour, a dark red one and some dark red one that matches up perfect with the red designer papers. 

We are sponsored this week by 

Who are offering a prize of a 20 Euro voucher to spend in her lovely store.

Well. later on today is it time to celebrate. The olderst kid is turning 9 during next week and we're having some guests over tomorrow. Well, about 20 of the closes family members. :) Never easy to get things to work like it should. But this time we're all getting together at the same time. Hope it will be a nice evening. 

Love n hugs

Spooky birthday

Morning and hello! Hope you're having a good week so far. Having some trouble with my arms and shoulders again. Have been doing some work that have not been so good for me. But now it's only three days left of my work training and then I can probably take it a little easier for a few days before I get my new orders from the employment office. I just need to find some good routines for my days when I don't have to leave home. Easier said than done.

This time over at Passion for Promarkers Eileen have set the theme of "Spooky birthday". That would be a mix of halloween and birthday. I had planned to use one of the fabby halloween images from the Paper Shelter but this time they where too detailed for me to colours so back to my little bat stamp from Bildmålarna. Isn't it cute? It's adorable in my mind. :)

So as always to be able to play with us you need to use Letraset products and my little Batman is coloured with my Letraset markers. I found some old monster papers that I got buying "Molly kits" when that store was still around here in Sweden. I am not using halloween or monsters that often so it's always a challenge to find something that fits for this time of the year. Maybe it will be a sale soon so I can buy something for next years fall and autumn challenges?


As decorations have I used some enamel dots and arrows. All the lines of the cape and the little bats are covered with a gelly glitter pen in silver. It looks lovely sparkly IRL. It looked mean on the photo so it's time to use your imagination. I wrote the sentiment with my dynamo write that belonged to my grand dad. It's really old and still works like a charm. I think it's as old as me and that means oooollllddddd. LoL

Sponsoring us this time is  Bugaboo stamps with a gift voucher worth $21 for a lucky winner to use in their store.

Ok then, sweet and short this time. I see you back here on Friday when it's time for a new dt-card. Until then...

Take care and love n hugs

Trick or Treat

Morning and hello! My dear kitty is still missing and now I starting to lose my hope. So I am a bit sad. He is/was such a great cat with a dog's personality.

This week we have "Trick or Treat" as our theme over at the Paper Shelter. Nothing that I celebrate but I find it fun to make a "scary" card from time to time. I have used an old paper pad from Pink Paisley and the image is called "witching hour". I have also used a die from Magnolia to make the spider web in two layers, one silver, one black. A sticker of a cute spider from my stash. Lace, a charm that I have painted black, ribbon, enamle dots, some straws and orange ribbon is used to decorate. The card stock is from Panduro. The pumpkin is also from my stash.

Oh well, I think I leave it like this for today. My mood for writing is quite low at the moment. I need some happy thoughts now. 

Love n hugs

Christmas with a ribbon

Morning and hello! Having a sad time in my corner of the world. One of my beloved cats have run away and with a heart problem I no longer expect to see him back even if he "just" have been away for a week. I am heart broken. On top of that it's only two weeks left of my work training and then I don't know what to do with myself yet again.

So I am sorry that I am late with my Winter Wonderland creation this time. I am really low and not even my sweet Pink Gem image can really make me smile, even if he is a real cutie. :) The image is called Chilly with lamp.

I have coloured him with my Letraset markers and paired him up with some Dovecraft designer papers from a few years back. He really is a joy to colour and very easy to get a good result with. I have used a glitter pen and a white gelly pen as well to give so really white on the swirly things and the glitter pen on the snowflakes and candle light. Some flower soft is also used to give it a snow effect.

Ribbon is from Dovecraft too I think. I have also used a snowflake charm, flowers from WOC, some silver pearls from Bunny Zoes, feather from Panduro, some silver string, punched out snow flake with a MS punch. Christmas sentiment from You Do.


The prize is 2 digi images of the winners choice.

Well, I think I leave it with this today. Sorry once again that I am so late posting. I just want to cry and can't focus on anything. 

Love n hugs
Marie

Doodling

Morning and hello! Fall is here for really and I enjoy every minute of it. Feeling a little bit better now after a week with the shots in the shoulder so I feel I can breath for a little while again. ;) Now the hard part is not to over do things.

This week are we "doodling" over at Passion for Promarkers. Such fun and easy theme don't you think? The only thing you need to think about is to use your Letraset Markers of any kind on your project. Nice and easy as we all love our markers, don't we?


Well, I don't know what happend to my photo this time. It's a compleatly dead picture. The "Super X" image from Magnolia is this week coloured with my Aquamarkers from Letraset. From time to time I bring them out and wonder why I don't do it more often? The back ground is also from Magnolia. I am kind of proud of how that turned out. What you don't see here is that the image is actually poping out from the back ground. He is layered there layers on heavy aquarell paper. The toodstools (from Bildmålarna) are also layered up in two layers each.

The designer papers are Echo Park and is called "That's my boy". I have kept it fairly simple yet again, but used quite a few layers on this card. I have used a spellbinder die for the zig zag layers and the doodling is made with a white jellypen. The letter stickers are from Doodle bug I think. It says "Congrats Emil" in Swedish. It's party time for all of the kids all the time at the moment.

Our generous sponsor this week is Polkadoodles who are offering one lucky winner a prize of 2 gorgeous digis from their Serenity range (‘Fairy kisses’ and ‘Stardust’).

Xtra Vaganza

Morning and hello!
I am back with a little creation for the Paper Shelter challenges. This weeks theme is set to "Xtra vaganza". That means we want to see extra everything when it comes to decorations. Nice and easy I hope.

I have use the fabby image Enchanted breakfast and you find it here. She's coloured with letraset markers and matched up with some dps in lovely pastel colours. Sorry but I don't remember the name of the pad. It's kind of old. :)


Well, had a fabby day of autumn when taking this photo. Got a little bright. :) Well, well... Lots of layers are added to the creation and it was quite long time since I made a easel card so this was really fun, but I hate taking pictures of them. :) I have used flowers from Magnolia, and Wild orchid crafts and metal corners. Charm of hello kitty, gemstone brads from Panduro, pearl hearts from WOC, ribbon of three different kinds from Joanna Sheen and WOC. Spellbinder die to frame the image and the name of the birthday girl. Some pearls from my stash. I also used some gesso on my metal corners.

As always we have a gift voucher worth $30 up for grabs if you play with any TPS product. Playing with another brand give you the chance to win 3 digis of your choice.

Anyway, I got some shots in my shoulder the other day and now it's hurting like h---. I have to keep it short once again. I just hope that they will help. At the moment it feels like I when a part of you have been still for long and you don't feel it. Then you start to move and the blood goes into the part of the body again and it hurts for a while. That feeling but lasting the whole day...

Pppppick up a penguin

Morning and hello! What a glorious weather we're having at the moment. Cold nights warm days and wonderful air to that. Sun is shining and it's lovely. It's still so warm outside that the trees are just about to change colours, but still a few more days they keep their green clothes on. On Saturday the final game outdoor of the soccer season takes place and then we can start enjoying the time of fall for real. The most wonderful time of the year.

Over at the Winter Wonderland we want to see penguins on your creations. How fun isn't that? I have had my card ready for weeks actually and really enjoyed doing this card. I'm affraid that I once again have forgotten from where I have gotten my wonderful image, if it pops into mind I write it down here. :)

The little cutie is coloured with Letraset Markers and some glitter glue in yellow from Rangers. I have used some of my much treasured Bildmålarna Winter collection paper pad to match the cute penguin up.


Some red card stock picks up the red in the hat of the penguin and I used some of the left overs from the border die to decorate with it. The die is from Whiff of Joy. The ribbon is from Dove craft and the silver web I don't now from where. Flowers from WOC and I am Roses. Charm from Rox stamps I think, or maybe Bildmålarna. The bells are from WOC and as a back drop I have used a big silver snowflake.



Sponsoring this challenge is  Crafts U love and the prize up for grabs is a gift voucher worth £10. How nice isn't that? I wouldn't mind at all. :)

Thanks for visiting!
