Clean and simple

Morning and hello! Another qick let you know that we have a new challenge up over at Winter Wonderland. This weeks theme is "Clean and simple". Quite a bit of a challenge for many I think, me included.

It's really late when I write this or maybe I should say early, it's around 03:00 in the morning and I have not been able to sleep yet. Quite a lot on my mind and that makes it impossible to sleep. Thought I try to write a bit on this post and it might get easier to sleep knowing I have done at least this.

Edited: Finally back to fill up the post. My card is really simple well it should be as the theme is CAS. I have used a sheet of white bazill card stock and layerd it up in different hights with foam dots. I have also used a spell binder die to make the "snowy hills". The little gnoom is a snag ém stamp. Isn't he adorable? I should use him more often I think. :) I did some dodeling for decoration and then used some letter stickers to spell out my sentiment: God jul och gott nytt år (Merry X-mas and happy New Year). They are transparent but look yellowish here. The whole card looks lots better IRL. 

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Dis Digistamps who are offering a great prize of $12 to spend in their store.

Love n hugs
Marie who will be back as soon as I can.

Things with wings + sentiment

Morning and hello! Had a late night last night watching Sweden play handball against Slovenia in Växjö, 130 kms from where I live. It was a blast but there was no time to write this post. We have some inspiration from the B-team and the theme is Things with wings + sentiment.

Our sponsor is The Paper Shelter. I am guessing it's a voucher as it normaly is...

I have used the image Make a wish and coloured with my Letraset Markers. I have also used a Prima pad for this card. Lots of lilacs in this pad which I don't remember the name of. :) I have used the new sketch from Papertake weekly for the lay out.

The flowers are a mix from Magnolia, I am Roses and WOC as usual. I have added some grey thin pearl string from my stash and added a butterfly charm to add a little more wings to my creation. Actually the dp's also have wings on them in the form of birds. Managed to cover them all up. :) A few pearls and a sentiment from stash finish the whole thing up.

Love n hugs for now

Easel does it!

Morning and hello! It's busy week here at my little blog corner. Hope you're all doing fine. Myself have a bit of an earache and a sore throat. I hope that is the cold which is playing games with me, otherwise it's the doctor's office and an allergy test that is up. I am pretty sure it's the last but if I pretend that it's the cold I don't have to go there. I don't want more meds but I am getting grumpy of this and squint all day because the eyes feels tired even when I have just been asleep. Ok, that's it. No more complaining this week, or at least today. :)

We have a new fun challenge up for you all over at Passion for Promarkers. This theme is a classic! We're asking you to share your new wonderful Easel cards. Of course you have coloured with Letraset products. Letraset is also sponsoring this weeks challenge and up for grabs is a set of Promarkers collectors set neutrals. Also sponsoring this week is Michele R design and there we have a gift voucher worth £10 up for grabs. Thanks to our sponsors this week. 

Ok then! I have a card made even if it was in nick of time. I have used one of the new Tildas from Magnolia and I have no clue of the name. It was in the new club kit. Have it become smaller? It feels like it... Anyway, this one is sweet and was fun to colour. I have used letraset markers and some prisma pens for adding highlights in the hair. Unlucky for you all I am still in the LOTV paper pad mood and have used the Pastel dream again. I am sorry, kind of. But now I am starting to run low on these. LoL

The papers matches the colour choices I make at the moment. Kind of bright pastels and that's one of the reason to why I keep coming back to them all the time. And they are easy to reach. Still have not finished my office/craft room. Hope to get closer to it during the weekend. We might be as lucky as we only have one soccer practise and no game but who knows? Guess we find out tomorrow. Oh boy, side tracked again. Sorry! 

I had no clue on how to decorate this card and to find what I wanted to use so I pretty much looked at my desk and found a bunch of stuff and "just" put them down on the card. The blingy things is from Joanna Sheen. Flowers are a mix from WOC and I am Roses. The charm is from Bildmålarna I think. The pretty circle die is bought from Moa Pyssel and the wooden heards in the flowers around Tilda is from my blogging friend Annelie.

Well this is all from me for today. See you in a few days again when I will be back with a new card for the AUD sentiment challenges.

Love n hugs

It's a celebration!

Hi and good morning! Just want to let you know that it's time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter today. Our theme is set to "It's a celebration". We have our 200 challenge up, not counting our special bloghops and other special challenges. So cards that celebrates something is all good for this week: wedding, birthdays, retirement etc.

For my card this week I returned to an old favourite of mine, My racing Car. This little chap always make me smile and feel better. And even if my craftroom is well not ready so at least a little bit useful have I still used the NitWit/LOTV dps up and way pad. It's lovely "bright" pastels which went great with the colours of my card this time. Everything looks a bit yellow in this picture but it's bright turquise IRL. I have followed the sketch from Everbody Art Challenge with is really lovely and a very useful. I for sure will use it again.


I have used a net and some paper string to decorate the card and be one of the layers in the sketch. I have used a car charm to pick up the theme and a wooden arrow to point out the direction of the car's way. A few bright buttons finish off the whole thing. The sentiment just says "Happy Birthday" in Swedish.

My teamies has done a brilliant job with this challenge to celebrate our 200 challenge. You are in for a treat visiting the The Paper Shelter blog. I hope you will all come and join us for our celebration this week!

As always we have a gift voucher worth $30 up for grabs if you play with any TPS product. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three (3) digis of your choice. There is tons of fabby images to choose between and you are sure to find something that will suit you. 

Love n hugs for now

It's a stitch up!

Morning and hello! A tiny bit late today, but finally here. The cold is still taking my energy out of me, but now I am here. We have a new challenge for you over at Winter Wonderland today. This weeks theme is all about stitching, real or faux that's totally up to you. I had planned for some real stitching this time but run out of time, again. So faux it's once again.

Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter who's offering a gift voucher worth $15 to one lucky winner.  Thank you for the prize!

For my card I have used a fun, cute image called Santa Selfie. It's totally adorable in my mind and I don't think I had the time to use it before Christmas but now, finally! I have used some left over designer papers but I have no clue from where they are. I have also used up some of all the glitter card that is laying around from Panduro. That's the down part of buying cardstock in pads. Lots of card stock you're not to fond of but to cheep to throw away. LoL

For decoration I did some faux stitching and used a ribbon from TGR. If I had not covered it up you would see that it says Merry Christmas in Swedish. A few pearls are there two. On Rudolph's nose have I used some glossy accent and the fluffy stuff on Santas clothes is Flower Soft Winter version. The image is coloured with my Letraset Markers.

Well then, all left is for you to drop by the Winter Wonderland and add your fabby stitching  Christmas card and we drop by to give you some love. :)

Love n hugs
