Furry Friends

Morning and hello! Just a quick note to tell that a new fun challenge us up over at Passion for Promarkers. The theme is Furry friends. I will have to take a quick visit to the hospital with my olderst now and will finish the post of later. In the meantime could you check out the PFP post and take some inspiration from my teamies and make a creation for this fun challenge.


I will be back and finish this post in a couple of hours. Oki, back again. Everything went fine and we got some lotions and other stuff to help his skin to get rid of the eczema he has. For once it feels like we have meet with a doctor who knows what she's talking about.

Back to the card. I have used some left over dps from LOTV/NitWit collections and a stamp that I can't find the name or brand of. However it's, cute. I took a plunch into some old stuff that I have had since forever and used up some gemstone hearts and some old and new letter stickers. The sentiment says "Thank you" in Swedish.

Our generous sponsor this week is 2 cute ink who are offering one lucky winner a prize of 3 digi images of their choice.  There are so many gorgeous digis in their store you will be spoilt for choice.

Make it digital

Morning and hello! Nothing seems like it's going my way at the moment. Once again I have a inflammation in my neck and shoulder that gives me splitting headaches and a very grumpy mood. I can hardly feel my left hand, still it's kind of working short times. Oh well, I got a card done even if it's later for the Paper Shelter's 250 challenge. But now it's there.

We have a very easy theme for you this week: Make it digital. That means that you have to use a digi image to enter our challenge, then it's up to you what you want to create.


I have used the pre coloured image Hey Baby! A great image that for now is too hard for me to colour in myself, but Veronica (the owner of the Paper Shelter) have done a smashing job with the image colouring with Photoshop. And as the colours matched a Maja design pad that I got from my friend Annelie a while back and the theme is kind of the same in the pad and in the image. Perfect match!

A ton of flowers have I added, a piece of lace, a carm, a ribbon bow, pearls, butterflies etc. I still feel something is missing but this is how it will be. It could have been worse. LOL


As always there is a gift voucher up worth $30 if you play with a TPS image, playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice isn't it? Do take a look over at our challenge blog and take some inspiration from what the team have come up with. You will be filled with good ideas on what to do.

Take care

Love n hugs

Running late late late

Good afternoon! Running late with my DT-creation for the Winter Wonderland which have the theme of un-traditional colours this week. I went with blue, brown and white. Once again my body have reacted strange to meds and weather. At the moment my left arm is in tons of pain at the same time can't I feel my hand on that arm. Problems with the nerve connections says my brother, and he is probabably right. He normally is when it comes to this, even if it's hard to admit. LoL


Both designer papers and topper is from Maja design, I don't remember from which collection. I used two different ribbons from my stash. added some glitter glue around the image and on top of the card. A snow flake from ROX stamps finish it off.

Sponsoring our challenge this week is  Crafts and Me and Teresa is offering an £8 voucher to spend in store. 


I am really sorry that I am so late once again. I thought I would feel better when not having so much to do, but it's the other way around. It's a lot worse. I will find a way to get rid of the worst of this and start working out again, but not at the gym. I will do it here at home. I do have all the things I need for it so there is really no excuse for not doing it, I just don't feel like it. LoL And that is the thought I need to get over.

Spots and or stripes

Here is where I normally write "Morning and hello", but it's a little late for that. I have had some problems again with my health. Have kind of over done things, so a really bad one and half week have passed. Now it's time to try healing and getting back to the more painfree life I had a few weeks ago.

This week is my favourite challenge blog turning 7! Hip Hip Hurray! Can't believe that it has been this long. Just as Denise wrote in her post I also remembering entering this fun challenge for the first time, just as nervous as the first PFP team was. :)

For this challenge I decided to go with a few old, never used before stamps from Bildmålarna. It's Bildmålarna Fence and Bildmålarna Chicken and hens. So I did some masking to get that look. It was a long time ago and I did had to remake the stamping once or twice. Of course the image is coloured with my Letraset / Winsor and Newton markers. Remember that you have to use those as well for your project to be able to have a chance on all the prizes we have up this week.


For this card have I also used quite a lot of dies from Magnolia's Doo Hickeys, and a few others. It was really fun playing around for a while with the dies and besides that, I got a little help with the cutting part from my olderst who did everything he could not having to do his homework, even die cutting was better. LoL The designer papers are from the LOTV, a mix from two different pads which is no longer around, but I think you can find them in digital form over at NitWit's. 

Ok here comes the long list of sponsors for this challenge. Lots of chances to win this week. How fun for all of you that will be playing around this week. Because you are going to play with us, right?

Sparkle and shine

Morning and hello! Time for another challenge over at the PFP-blog. This week we are going sparkling and shine on our creations.

Sparkle and shine do I have a lot of on my card, but it got made in a hurry as my first card was kindly messed up by one of cats. If he just hadn't walked all over the wet glitter that was used on the first one... Dirt and glitter is hard to remove. LoL


Anyway, instead I dug out some old Magonlia products; stamp, dies and dp's. Then added some micro glas beads and sequines for some extra feeling of water and glittering on a sunny day. All the shiny sequines is supposed to represent water drops as I couldn't find my dew drops. Became just a little too much but it shines and glitter, right? And it was fun to use that old Edwin stamp again. So many stamps laying around, only used once or twice. Should be able to use them a little more often, shouldn't I?

Sponsoring us this week is All dressed up with two digis to one lucky winner. Really lovely isn't it?

Now time for me to hit the bed as allegery have hit hard this morning. They are taking care of the grass around the village and guess who gets sick because of that? I am just hoping that I don't mess this post up too much.

Anything but a card

Morning and hello! 
For once in time, ready to go. This week over at the Winter Wonderland our theme is set to Anything but a card. Such fun challenge! 

Well since I had an altered box for my last dt-creation for the winter wonderland did I countinue that theme with some matchboxes and light cuffs. Some presents ready for the teachers in school. 

Once again have I been good and used up some old stuff. The only new thing is the matchboxes and the candle lights. It was fun to make and I have done them before but I know that they are well recieved. I have made two blue sets and one red. Something have to be different. :)


Sentiment die is from ROX stamps


Still the same ROX die. Love the classic old fashion look to it.


And the last one also with the same sentiment die and then some star dies.

Sponsoring this challenge is 

Di's Digi Stamps   who are giving a voucher for $12 to spend in store


and Marianne Designs who will send the winner a super surprise



Well, time to relax for a moment or two before the boys gets back from school. This weekend is once again filled with soccer playing for the kids, as well as it was the other day. A never ending story for a while now.

Love n hugs
Marie
