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

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.

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!

Anything goes over at TTCRD

Morning and hello! I am back again! A few weeks ago was I lucky enough to get picked as a winner over at TTCRD and there was a opportunity to guest design for the challenge and the day has come. 😊 Today I am sharing my card using designer papers from DĂ©cosse's Dynamite DoodlesI have used designer papers from Familiar Refrain and Holiday Hoopla.

DĂ©cosse's Dynamite Doodles is sponsoring this challenge over at TTCRD so a big thank you for letting me use the lovely dp's as well for my card.



I have matched the lovely dp's with a Tilda image from Magnolia's Winter kit and as it is Lucia here in Sweden today I thought it was a perfect match with music note papers and everything. Couldn't be a better mix. I have coloured with distress inks this time and some perfect pearls mixed into it as well. 

I would like to thank the lovely crafters of TTCRD for letting me guest design for them and I hope that you will join the challenge. It's nice and easy as it is always Anything goes theme on this challenge. 

I wish you all the best and hope to see you all soon again. Have a lovely St Lucia day for you who celebrates it. 

Love n hugs
Marie

A little Christmas card again

Morning and hello! I am having a creative time at the moment. Here is another Christmas card that I started when Pyssloteket had their CC. I never finished it by then as I got really sick, but on the other hand I have a new card I can show you here in my blog.

I have used a bunch of left overs for this card. I have a middle blue paper with silver in both the blue colour and some silver foil pattern in the dp. It's from a really old paper collection that I don't remember from where I have got it. But it's nice and Christmassy or wintery is more the truth.


I have made a few bulbs with diecuts from my stash. I don't remember the brand for now. I have used some glitter cardstock and white to match the details on the card. The stamps are from YouDo and I stamped it in blue memento ink if I remember everything right. To hang the bulbs have I used some silver string as well to follow throw with the theme of the card.

Time to work on my photo albums for a while and then the weekend is here again. So nice, it will be alot of indoor soccer and a little birthday celebrations over at my brothers on Saturday.

Take care and do something that makes you happy today!

Love n hugs

Birthday bloghop over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! It's now 6 years since The Paper Shelter challenges was born and now are we celebrating our birthday once again with a bloghop. You don't have to visit us all during the same day, but each comment you leave on the challenge blog and the teamies's blogs are a chance to win a digi from the Paper Shelter. (One chance / blog). 

On top of that do you still have the chance to win the normal gift voucher as our challenge goes on as normal, only that it's two weeks long. So come on an leave some love around all the TPS teamies blogs. I for sure am very grateful to have been a part of this since the beginning. A true blessing! 

If you're coming from Vannessa's lovely blog you're on the right track and besides that, you have come to an end. Next stop is our challenge blog.

Here is the rest of the stops on the way in case you have missed out of someone.

                
For my celebration card have I used The bookworm fairy. I found her suitable for this celebrations as for me it is a party to read. I love it even more than crafting, I know can you love something more than that but in my case it's the truth. 


I have coloured this little cutie with my Letraset markers, a glitter pen in silver and some glossy accent for her glasses. 


The card is an easel card and I had great fun decorating with a whole flower garden this time. I have used a charm on my card, a lace bow and some metal corner as well. I have left the oval blanc for now as I am not sure who will get the card yet. I wanted to have a chance to add a longer name and a number if needed. You know the drill...


I do hope you have enjoyed our fabby bloghop and have given the gals some well deserved love. Remember that it's you who play along with our challenges that makes it all happen. I for sure can't wait to see your amazing creations. And remember that you don't have to take part in the blog hop to play along in our challenge with the theme of birthday celebration.

Mega Christmas Challenge

Morning and hello! It's that time of the year again when we hold our yearly Mega Challenge. This week will Team 2 showing their fabby cards, and the 20th of December will team one's cards be shown.

This week we are launching our very special “Mega Christmas challenge” which runs for a whole month and ends on 3rd January 2017!  I’m sure you’ll agree that both design teams have worked extremely hard once again this year and they deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards.  However to make up for the lack of challenges we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs!

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “use your dies/punches”.  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as you follow the theme.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.  Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Eat drink and be merry!

Morning and hello! Time for another challenge over at Passion for promarkers. Still being knocked over by the cold that won't give in, the cardmaking hasn't gone too well this time. But hey! It's better than nothing! I finally got my tooth fixed yesterday so I have a splitting headache on top of everything else but at least it's done.

The theme over at Passion for Promarkers is this week "Eat, drink and be merry!" Took me a while to find an image as I didn't had anyone in mind. But after looking around in my big pile of TPS images I found "For Santa". I know I would have done it justise if I had done the colouring before I went to the dentist but as I only have "fun" things going on at the moment I had to try to get the kidney cat to eat as well before I went to the dentist, so no colouring time.


It was really odd but I actually had everything done for the card except the image when I went to the dentist. I have now learned: do the colouring before the dentist and the result will be a lot better. 😉

I have used some digital dp's from Simple Stories and the Mistletoe Kisses collection. The sentiments is from that pack as well. I have finally found a quite cheep paper to print my digital papers on and it isn't any shine on them. I don't like the shiny stuff for my cards. I have used some pearl string that I was hoping will set your mind to snowballs or snow flakes. A few ginger breads as deco as the theme is eat and drink. A few pearls and enamel dots has found their way to the card as well.

Clearly Besotted Stamps

Sponsoring this challenge is Clearly Besotted stamps who is offering the winner 1 stamp set (that has to be in stock)

Well my friends, by the time you read this am I still probably in bed and plan to stay there for the rest of the day to make the headache go away and then I even might be able to go to the meeting in the soccer club later in the evening, who knows?

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Another one for the CC at Pyssloteket

Morning and hello! I managed to convinced myself to make yet another entry to Pyssloteket's CC. This was a bingo board and the main theme of the card had to be male of any size. My bingo line was "Blue, grey, bling (enamel dots in my case) and patterned paper". And the Paper Shelter have recently introduced a new image called "SWAG" and that's what my youngest keep saying all the time here at home at the moment. Besides that I love to colour this kind of images.

I printed some fabby dp's from Simple Stories as I try to buy them digitaly at the moment. A lot more cheeper than the real stuff that I use for my photo albums most of the time. These dp's are a mix from a few different packs; happy new year, say cheese and colour vibe bold.

The colours became a bit dark here but the card is in dark grey, blue both dark and light and some black. The brick wall in the frame is de-embossed with some distress ink put on the folder before adding the paper and into the mashine. The back of the embossing looked lots better than the embossed side. I coloured that side as well, just in case. A few e-dots and some stars made with a Joanna Sheen confetti die I think is my decorations for the card. I have also used a silver pen to colour in the bling bling the kid is wearing. The glasses have some glossy accent on them as well for that perfect look you know.

Well this is all from me for today. We're not allowed to take part in any more challenges with our creations than this CC so this will be all from me for today.

Love n hugs

A little more of that Christmassy thing

Morning and hello! Long time no seen. I have been totally knocked out of a cold that refuses to give in and I am so tired all the time. It might have something to do with my broken tooth on top of that. But now is it only two more days before I get it fixed. Yiippiii! Well I don't like going to the dentist, but I am tired of the pain the tooth gives me. Anyway, it's not why I am here. My boys are at my brother's place and celebrate his oldest's birthday but I really couldn't go both cold and headache from the tooth so I have been home a long for a few hours. The plan was to go to bed and do some crocheting on my second blanket but I ended up in the craft room instead. It's nice too. So now is my hands covered in gesso, chalk mist, glimmer mist, glitter glue and some other kind of spray mist and while that is drying my plan is to start up a new project for the CC that goes on over at Pyssloteket. A FB-group where there is a few challenges going on until next sunday.


This card is made for the extra challenge that was only up for today. A card with 10 musts on it.
Glitter of some kind stickles or lose glitter, Stamp either motive or sentiment, stars, brads, circle, handwritten (I dug out my walnut ink for the first time in ages and used my calligraphy pen on my ready and done image, foolish or brave? LoL), gold, turquoise, patterned paper and stencil (I don't even own a stencil so I made my own, worked better than I thought)✌.

Everything is on the card. First time ever with a stencil and I used gesso in my second try with that, worked alot better than glitter glue that I wanted from the beginning. Instead did I pour golden glitter into the wet gesso and it turned out pretty nice. I have used brown cardstock so that the golden accent wouldn't look totally wrong with the all the turquoise on my dp's.

Ok, this is all for today, I think. I start to get tired now and my head is spinning. But first some chatting with my new yarn supplier. Ordered some fabby yarn in an FB-group that I joined a while ago. The world is small when you find out that it really is the mum of PH's fiends from kindergarten. They have lost contact now as they are in different schools, but we live 10 minutes apart. Red altert going out now as it might be a bit too expensive to keep shopping for all of this fabby multicoloured yarn from Germany there. 😉

More of Christmas

Morning and hello! It's already November 18th, can you believe it? Wasn't it July last week? Time do fly by don't it? All my posts at the moment seems to be Christmassy and so is this one. I have no card for you today but a simple altered round box that might become Christmas gift wrap when the big day come. That is if I can get the lid to work like it should. 😉 It has probably expanded a bit when the gesso went on so it's hard work to get it on and off. Hope it will be better when it's totally dry again.

Today I am presenting the new challenge over at the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog and our theme is poinsettias or snow is falling. Either theme is fine by us for you to use. I have gone with the flowers this time.


The box is from a set from IKEA that I bought a year ago or so. All in lovely bright green that wasn't really the colour of the day how to speak. I have painted the whole thing with gesso before I covered it with some dp's from Maja Design. I had already cut of the banner of the papers so I don't know from what collection it is. Probably last years Christmas collection.


I used both front and second side of the paper. The box has a funny gap between the lid and body of the box so there is a space between them both that you can't really do nothing with as it would make it even harder to close and open. I took some rose lace on the lid to cover some of it up with out covering it how to speak. And then I used a thin cotton lace at the bottom. I think that one is from Prima.


The poinsettias are made with a die from Magnolia Sweden. I used some craft and red card stock to make them as I was in no mood at all to colour when I made this project. The leafs are made with a MS punch and the metal that shows under the flowers are metal snowflakes that I really love and bought a really big pack of a month ago or so. I covered the flowers in red stickles from TH and some dry glitter on top of that for a frosty look.


Sponsoring this challenge is Crafty Sentiments that offers three digis for one lucky winner. How great isn't that?

Well then, let the weekend begin. I hope you find some time to relax and do what makes you  happy. For me it will be to start planning the stuff that I hope to do to prepare for Christmas. I look forward to that cosy time. Playing games and having fun with family.

Take care,

Love n hugs
Marie

Christmas is coming, part 2

Morning and hello! Hope you had a great week with some time to make you relax and breath. I have spent quite some time with my crochet needle trying to get my mind of things. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Well, this is my Christmas is coming part II post. It happend that we had the same challenge name on both TPS challenges and Passion for Promarkers. It's my favourite theme and time of the year so I don't mind at all, and this is what I did for the PFP challenge post. 😊


I very rarely make tags, but this time I was in some kind of mood for that, only that my image was even thinner than I thought it should be so it got a bit unbalanced. Oh well, it was fun to make. Even if it doesn't goes all the way on my top list of makings. The image is from the Paper Shelter and it's really cute. He is of course coloured with my letraset markers.


I used a whole bunch of old papers from a Dovecraft paper pad that I have had for ages and it never seems to come to an end. LoL Forever lasting paper pads, could that be something? I have used a lot of die cuts on the tag as well. A big mix from ROX stamps, Magnolia, Joy Crafts etc. I have used some gesso both really washed out with water and the thick stuff. Some dry glitter and micro beads here and there. A few flowers, ribbon, lace, twin you name it and find it on here. A metal snow flake that I just adore is also used and a piece of rose ribbon.


Sponsoring this challenge for Passion for Promarkers is 2 Cute Ink with two images for a lucky winner, and to have a chance on the prize you need to use your letraset markers in any form: tria, promarkers, brush markers etc.

Well this is it for me for today. Now off to drop the first cat of to the vet. Then me to the dentist and then back to the vet with yet another bunch of cats and pick up the first one. Busy day ahead and I already feel the head ache.

Take time to relax and do something that makes you happy!

Christmas is coming, part 1

Morning and hello! As I have been down with heavy cold again, and it got on my joints again. So I have been staying very still for a week and a half and watched scrap booking videos on You Tube. Found a fabby scrapper going under the name of Mercy Tiara. And doing this card I realized that I have taken one or two of her tips with me. More clusters, more black lines, more wonky lines, staples that I never use. Let me just say, I had a blast making this card!

So here we go. I have used one of the newer christmas images from the Paper Shelter. It's called Santa's family selfie and you find it here. I love this fun, whimsical image that makes me smile, just as a bunch of the other great Christmas images you find over at the paper shelter.


Well going with a modern Santa taking selfies with his family doesn't stop me from using a quite classic Christmas paper collection called December Romance from NitWit collections. I just adore it and love, love, love that it has so much black in it. It totally rocks! The black might not be classic but it works perfect! So execpt from the staples and pearls on the card have I only used bits and pieces from this collection on the card. A a black marker and a white gel pen have helped me getting a little definiton here and there. The sentiment on the image is from a Gummiapan stamp just saying Merry Christmas in Swedish.


I also found some great "in between" paper and cardstock to print the dp's on, and it looks perfect. Too bad that the scrapbook store had ran out of it now when I need more of it. I think it will be perfect to print my digital Project life cards on as well. Looking forward to that as well.


As always when we have a challenge for you over at the Paper Shelter you have the chance of winning a gift voucher worth $30. That is if you're playing with a TPS image. Playing with a different brand gives you a chance of winning three digis of your choice.

Well, I hope you like the card as much as I do, and most of all I had a fabby time making it. Take care and do what makes you happy!

Tweetmas wishes (Christmas birds)

Morning and hello! Time again for a new fun PFP challenge, this time with the lovely theme of Tweetmas wishes, in other words Christmas birds. Should not be any trouble getting a card done on that theme is it?

I have been playing a bit with this card. I have printed the image with the cute snowman in different sizes and fussy cut around them, all six of them. Took some time but the result of it is really fun I think. The back ground is stamped with a lawn fawn stamp and the forest and the hill shapes are also die cut with some different dies from Lawn Fawn and Gummiapan I think. It's a bit of a mess in my head when it comes to that part. A few MFT die cut birdies are on there too. The snow is heat embossed by the way.


The snow sentiment on the front is from Lawn Fawn as well. The inside sentiment is belonging to the original image and that have I used on the inside of my card.


It's a card with many layers and it was such fun project to deal with as I had plenty of time to do it and on the good part is that I had it on my desk for quite some time and worked little at the time. Worked out really well for me. Wish it could be like that more often. LoL

Sponsoring this challenge is All dressed up with a prize of two digis of your choice. How nice isn't that?

Now it's time for me to take a rest once again as the fever is running high here today and I really don't feel well when it comes to that part of my life, but otherwise it's quite good!

Take it easy and don't forget to do something that makes you happy!

Pearls and/or gemstones

Morning and hello everyone! Hope you're doing ok or at least better than I am at the moment. It's Midweek again and time for a new challenge over at the Paper Shelter. This time we're going with the theme of pearls and/or gemstones. It should be nice and easy for us all, right?

I have used the image called coffee break II and you find it here. I was really pleased with how the colouring turned out on this image but then I kind of ruined it with my bold flowers. But no energy to redoing so it have to do for this time. She is coloured with my letraset markers.


Once again have I used my Maja Design paper pads. This is a mix of vintage summer and a christmas pad. I have cut quite a bit of layers for the card and used a Magnolia Doo Hickey border die at the bottom of the card. Some mixed flowers that I dipped into some gesso and glitter from my stash. Coffee coloured pearls are added as decorations here and there and so are a few metal flowers that I found in my stash. A few sentiment / postal stamps from my stash is also used to add some more happening on the card, and the sentiment says "enjoy the day" in Swedish. What better way to do that than a big coffee cup and a tablet or book to read?

Well, time for some rest again. I do hope that you will join our nice and easy challenge this week and maybe give the teamies so love as they work really hard to get things done and show you some inspiration!

Totally forgot the normal info about the gift voucher worth $30 if you play with a TPS image and 3 digis from the TPS store if you are playing with another brand.

Take care and enjoy some crafting time!

Frosty or well wrapped up

Morning and hello! Time for a new challenge again over at the Winter Wonderland. This time is it my Frosty challenge that will take place. Either a snowman or cold colours like blue, white and silver and then there is another theme as well: Well Wrapped up. An image with lots of clothes or maybe a well wrapped gift who am I to know. :) The challenge is yours!

I have used one of my favourite Magnolia stamps. If I was just to keep one this is probably it. I have used it every year since I bought it and will probably for many more years, even if it's only once per year. I have coloured him with my distress inks for a change and for once I did not have to do it more than once. I was clever enough to walk away from it and let it dry before going forward with close by areas. Well done to me! LoL



The dp's are from Bo Bunny and have been stashed way for a little while, ok then some years. I love these papers and I only have two of them left. They are a bit glitter embossed and wonderful in their colours. I bring them out from time to time when I need inspiration. Strange how a couple of snowy dp's can do that to you.

Sponsoring this challenge is Bugaboo and Marianne Design. The prizes are the following Such nice offerings here isn't it?


Who are offering a special prize to the winner

and by
Bugaboo Stamps who have a prize of 7 images for the winner.


I wouldn't mind winning one of them myself. I wish you luck with the challenge. And as you might have noticed our challenges are now two weeks long and with double themes. You have twice as long to enter and twice as many challenges in one. 

Well, time for me to call the vet and then maybe some crafting and work with the photo albums. I am so pleased that I have been able to keep up with the photos this year. Being sleepless isn't always a bad thing. A photo here and there once or twice per week and you get there. LoL

Take care and enjoy your weekend. Take some time to do some crafting and feel happy about it!

Love n hugs

New challenge over at Passion for Promarkers

Morning and hello! Time for a new challenge over at PFP, this time is all about the lovely colours of the fall / autumn. I love this time of the year when the nature explodes in stunning warm rich colours. It's just fantastic. Where I live we are at the moment at the yellow stage when everything start to change from green to yellow and pretty soon will all the rich red and oranges come along as well. And that is what our challenge is all about today. The theme is called "All things bright and beautiful-colours of fall/autumn.

I have been digging in my way too big stash of unused stamps again. Was quite a while since I did that to be honest. There is hundreds of them, that that's only from Magnolia I'm affraid. Well, a few got used this time. The fun elk or moose or what you call it. This time around here in Sweden is it hunting time for these animals, it's special times depending on where you live in Sweden. As well as it gets darker outside they are also quite a big reason for car accidents around here. We have a lot of forrest in this part of the country and this year little water and they come up on the roads more often. However I can't remember when I saw one in the wild, but they are there. They are really big, but also really majestic animals and they are quite a sight when they come moving in their natural habit.


Mine however is more to the cuter look I think, and I really should have used this image way before. But I tend to spend quite a lot of time watching my stamps instead of using them. LoL Well, -3 today in the unused stamp box, Magnolia. Of cours Mr Moose is coloured with Letrasetmarkers of different kind and the dps are from Bo Bunny. I dig those out once or twice per year but now I need to buy a new pad, really soon. It's running low. I have cute around both the leaves and acorns and used those as decorations. I have also used some gold glitter cardstock to add some extra details to the card.



This week are we have Letraset sponsoring us with this fabby prize - it is a Winsor & Newton 12 set of brushmarkers (set 1) which also includes a free blender pen.  Of course you need to use your Letraset Markers to have a chance of winning the prize. I think I am going to rename myself for a while and make sure these ends up in my mail box. Really would like to try them out, to see if they have become better. Well, it's up to some one of you that wins this great prize to find out. Luck you!

Well, have a fabby week and don't forget to do what makes you happy!

Food or drink

Morning and hello! Almost in time today. :) It's so dark here today that it was hard to get a photo that wasn't totally washed out. But hey, at least something that I can show. I might have to retake it later if I find the energy that seems to have taken vacation with the fellow viking on my card today.

We have a new theme over at the Paper Shelter today and that is Food and/or drink and on the challenge blog you find many different way to deal with this theme. Everything from baking to ginger bread houses and berries and fruits.

I have used another one of the oldies called Viking vacation just because I really enjoy colouring these types of images. They make me smile. Have I ever mentioned that I love comic books? Well I do, and read both comic books and the real deal as well. Sometimes you really need to clear your head and why not with happy colours and silly jokes?


Ok, side tracked again. How easy that happens! My friend here, Mr Viking is coloured with some letraset markers /Winsor Newton. Fussy cut him and paired him up with tons of dies that have been collected over the years. There is dies from Magnolia, Lawn Fawn and the little ducklings from Memory box I think. It doesn't really show on the photo but there is some foam dots used here and there to raise some details of the card. And except all the die cutting I have only used some sugar dots as decoration together with the sentiment stamp from LOTV.

Ok then, this is all from me for today. I wish you a wonderful day and I do hope you come and play with us over at the Paper Shelter this week.

Take care and enjoy some crafting time!

Love n hugs
