Pretty Pastels

Otherwise no chance on the lovely prize from Little Miss Muffet stamps who offers the winner a $6 voucher to spend in their store.

And now to my card for the week. For quite some time now have I had this stamp and dieset from Lawn Fawn thinking that I will used them to make a bunch if easy going cards. But the time is never there to play around just for fun, so today did I decide to use them for Lisa's Pretty Pastels' challenge. Crayons comes in all coloures so it made it a good choice to play around with the stamp/die set.


Some colouring with my markers and some pencils to highlight the shadows a tiny bit. Then I got my die cut mashine to work using mainly dies from Lawn Fawn to create my little scenery. I went a bit heavy on the pearl acrylic paint but now I learned to next time. Stop in time and don't over do it. That paint has been stored for quite some time as well. Hmmm... buy less, use more? Maybe next year... LoL

The designer papers are from the pad Up, up and away by Nitwit and LOTV. It's not as much left on that now. All the favourites are gone but I am working my way down to the rest of them as well. I covered the mid section of the card with some vellum to give the crayons a bit of a rest in some softer coloured back ground. Kind of happy with the design, but next time COLOR will be in different colours... You always learn something don't you?

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Blooming days

Morning and hello, well a bit late but still... We have a new challenge up for you all over at the Paper Shelter today and the theme is nice and easy as we have set it to Blooming days. So add a few flowers to your creation and you are good to go. You can enter our challenges up to three times and one of those creations needs to have a TPS image on them. So even if you are without any of theses fabby images you can enter our challenge here.

For my card today have I used the fun image Enjoy the summer and you find it here. It's coloured with a mix of promarkers and copics. I am quite annoyed as my pens keeps bleeding and I am tired of it. It was close to the bin again. I decided to look the other way. I have use an First edition paper pad, First leaf or something like that. I hardly every use those papers as I think they have too much structure on some of them. Don't like that. But I like the colours in this pad at least.


I have used some hemp string, dew drops in brown and of course some flowers as the theme is about flowers this time around. That is what I have used for decorations this time.


As always we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice.

Well, now is it time for me to lay down and relax a bit and then maybe even drag myself to the gym and do some cardio. But that is just a big maybe.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Fun in the Sun!

Morning and hello! I am back again after a very long weekend with tons of soccer in the village of Vimmerby. My youngest have been playing with a team of older boys and has done a great job. We will be back again next year. Third time in a row!

But today it's all about card making again. We have a new challenge over at Passion For Promarkers and the theme is "Fun in the Sun". I went with a soccer card as it is way more fun to play and watch when it's a bit of sunshine.


I have used the Soccer trio from Lili of the Valley and coloured with my Letraset/Winsor & Newton markers. I dugg around my digital papers and found my mini theme from Echo park and used that. Some wooden stars and a few card candies are the decorations for the card together with some letter stickers from Panduro.

Sponsoring this challenge is Sasayaki Glitter. And the prize is one digi of winners choice.

Well, sweet and short today as I feel a bit off since the weekend. A ton of energy is used even if it's not me who plays. LoL

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

Anything goes

Morning and hello! It's midweek and time for a new challenge over at the Paper Shelter. We are going to have a bit of a summer break during this challenge and that means no commenting. Our theme is "Anything goes".


Just as always you can enter our challenges up to three times and one of those entries needs to have a TPS product on it. You can play with any brand and you have a chance to win three digis of your choice from the store. Playing with a TPS image and you have the chance of winning a gift voucher worth $30.

For my card have I used the lovely Pineapple and coloured it with copics. Totally lost but trying. I am struggling a bit with my Promarkers as quite many of them are running out. Need to restock on some of the colours.


The designer papers might look familiar to you as I had a card up two weeks ago with almost the same look. I miss judged the placement and had to redo it so I made this card at the same time and it turned out great.

Well, short and sweet today. The changing weather is causing me some trouble again with stiff vrists and sour neck. Life is great! It will get greater!

Take care and do something you enjoy!

Love n hugs

Use a digi!

Morning and hello! Welcome back to my corner of the blogging world. Hope you’re all doing fine and enjoy the sunshine. Well, we are a bit off line here as the kids have trouble letting go of their screens in all single ways. If it’s not their phones, there is the computer, and if it’s not the computer the TV. I wonder what my granny had said if she was still alive and saw this.

It is time for a new challenge over at WinterWonderland today and it feels so right to sit and make Christmas cards when it’s about 24 degrees outside. LoL Well, I will be grateful when December comes and I realize that I have to make a ton more of them as it’s very few made so far. I need to step it up and if the weather will keep its promise and poor down on us tomorrow I will make a bunch of cards hopefully. We always have hope. J

The theme of this period is “Use a digi” so we have a nice and easy theme for you this time. So keep these Christmas cards coming. You know you will need them really soon. LoL


I have coloured my image with some copics that I really don’t know how to handle properly. But it’s always good to try out new things. The image is called Christmas Deer from All dressed up. Sweet and lovely images for you all to enjoy. I have combined the image with some designer papers from Dove craft and it’s called something like Kraft Christmas or something like that. The ribbon is from Royal Tiger of Copenhagen, the sentiment charm is from ROX-stamps and the favourite snowflake is from PH Hobby. Pearls is from my enormous stash. I have used some wink of stella pens on the deer as well. Clear, purple and green.

Sponsor of this challenge is All dressed up and they offer one lucky winner two digis of their choice. How nice isn't that?

Well folks, this is all from me for today. I wish you a lovely week and hope to see you around. Take care and do something you enjoy!

Love n hugs
Marie
