Stardust-Tilda blowing magic!

A while ago my good blog-friend, Maritha, celebrated her birthday or rather she did not want to celebrate the fact that she was growing older! :-D So I just had to make her this card where Tilda is blowing her magic fairy dust and alters ages. :-) This is how it turned out...

Here is a close up on the image.. Colored using Distress Refils.

Here are the cute flowers...

I have used the adorable papers from Bo Bunny but it acctually feels a bit silly with the tea pot on the papers as my friend drinks neither coffee nor tea (just like me!). However I could not resist them!!

My card fits the challenge at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar and stÄnglar - Summer Colors.

Best wishes and a big hug to all of you who stopped by today- and a BIG thank you to those of you who take the trouble to leave me a comment!! They warm my heart!

Home Sweet Home using Vilda Stamps!!

Today I have a card to show that I made for a friend who's just moved. Vilda Stamps cute little mushroom house is perfect for such a card - don't you think??

I colored this image using both Distress Markers and refils. Here is a close up! I just adore this little house!

For my embellishment I have used a die cut tree, the die is from Memory Box. Some sweet flowers and the alphabet is from Panduro. I punched out some turqouise butterflies to sit on the tree as they also match the tiny bits of blue on the gorgeous paper from Bo Bunnys "Home sweet home" collection.

I'm so glad you stopped by today - I've been really busy at work the past couple of days and will be for the rest of the week but if you leave me a comment - I'll be sure to stop by during the weekend! Wish you all a magical day!!!

A lifted LO!

Today I'm showing a layout that I made a while ago for SweScrapbook - lifting Karin/qurin. She had made such a fun layout with a bunch of pictures in it. So that's what I tried to do...

For the love of me - I can't remember who's made these papers but don't the fit the palyful pics of my boys at the park?

I kept very few embellishment to not take focus away from the pictures. Hope you like it! Thank you for stopping by today - it makes me sooo happy!

DT DigiBells - Black 'n White!

Such a day!! It's Sweden National Day today but we don't really celebrate much... It became a national holiday about 5 yrs ago so that we would be able to celebrate... But it's just not "the swedish way"... *lol*

Today I have a card for you that I made using the cutest little image from Elisabeth's Digital Gallery. I was acctually challenged by a friend, Margareta, to make a card in black 'n white. How do you think I did?

You'd better stop by Margareta as well... She's a very talented lady - not to mention that she makes her own envelopes for all her cards!! Yes, stunning ones from designpaper to match the cards!!

Here is a close up on the sweet image - colored with distress reinkers this time!

Here is a close up on the embellishment. Papers are from Maja Design.

Sentiment using the alphabet from Panduro.. Perfect card size!! :-D God Jul means Merry Christmas...

I'm adding this to the challenge at Whimsey Stamps - things with wings.

Hope that you will all have a splendid day!! Thank you for stopping by today and for all your sweet words you leave me! I will take a blog tour later today to share some love with you!

DT Scrappekammeret: Summer!

Ohh, what a day!! I just came home from the boy's daycare - they had their "summer party" today celebrating summer and the fact that the oldest children are off to school in the fall. My boys are too young yet to go but next year my eldest will begin school... Where does time fly!?!?

I have a new card to show you today - for Scrappekammeret. However I have some sad news... This is the last challenge for Scrappekammeret... It was a very hard descission for us DT-girls to make but none the less it feels quite good now. I have been a "kammerpike" for a year and a half and it was my first international designteam. Anyways... We decided to go out with a blast and have an easy peasy challenge for you - SUMMER!! Do what you want on the theme summer... Hope to see you join us as we have TWO STUNNING PRIZES this time!

Here is my take on the challenge for your inspiration!

I have used the adorable image designed by non-other than Elisabeth Bell for Whimsey Stamps. In Sweden you can get Whimsey Stamps at Mikaelas Scrapin. I praticed my Copics coloring her.

The papers are from Prima. Embellished with flowers, stickles, a die cut frame and a charm.

I so do hope that you will find time to enter you last challenge - you have until June 20th to do so. Wish you a crafty day and do feel free to leave a comment for me - so I can find my way back to you. Happy crafting!

Hoping you all have had a great weekend! Mine has been all rain but at least I got some crafting done ;-)

Today I have a card to show in pink and green that I made for a christening. It fits the challenge at Whiff of Joy (add metal) and I've used the sketch from Papertake Weekly. This is my card:

For my card I have used this adorable image called "Willow with baby" designed by Elisabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy. She's colored with Copics.

A close up on the embellishment... Swirls are dies from Magnolia as well as the design paper and flowers from Wild Orchid. A cute metal butterfly sits on one...

More flowers and a sweet charm in the shape of a crown...

Just had to give you a last close up on the larger metal flower...

TOMIC Sketch Challenge!

Today I have a card to show that I made for the sketch+summer scene challenge over at TOMIC. It's acctually the first time I've ever entered their challenge... :-0 There is a first time for everything :-D and I looooved the sketch! It was perfect for the birthday card I wanted to make for a lady I used to work with but still consider a mentor in my professional life! My card also fits the challenge at Tilda's Town - to use Tilda/Edwin with an accessory stamp. Anyways here is the card I made:

I have used this sweet Tilda from a collection last year... I just looove her!! I colored her using Copics this time. Feels like I getting the hang of it after a year's pratice :-D Finally!! Although I must admit I haven't been at it sooo much as I usually color using my distress reink's. It shows a bit bad in the pic but I have used dry chalk to create clouds behind Tilda and make a summery sky.

A close up in to sweet flowers...

The other side... Papers are from Magnolia, Inkido and Maja Design. Added loads of Stickles.

Just a shot to give you a 3D hint - I've cut out Tilda and added her to the card on 3D cushions to make it more effectful.

Thank's so much for stopping by today - it warms my heart and I'd love to hear what you think of my card!! Have a magical day!!!
