Summer Spirit over at the Paper Shelter

Hello and good evening! 
So sorry that my post is really late today. It has been one of those days when nothing works out like it should. I had my card done and ready to go up but I was not working very well last night so a bit belated I am back at least. A bit late is better than not showing up at all. :)

Our theme this week over at TPS is "summer spirit". That means we want to see something that you relate to summer and summer feelings kind of. It should be a nice and easy theme during this time of the year. 


I have used the smashing and a bit different image called The Dreamer. It's a smashing bottle ship. I love the image as it puts me back to my childhood when we used to sail all the summer, so there comes my summer spirit. My had was some kind of wizard when it came to sailing. He refused to have a motor on board the sailing boat. He could even handle the boat just the way he wanted. All of the sudden could you realize that the boat was going back wards. It was him parking it in the right spot only by using the wind. Still amazes me as I have never seen anyone else sail that way. He was plain and simple brilliant at it. And that's why I chose that image for this challenge. It means a little more than just an image to me.

I have coloured with my promarkes and some glossy accent for the bottle. It gave it a great shine and it looks more like a really bottle than just my lazy kind of colouring. I used the same designer papers from Bo Bunny that I have used the last few months. It's coming to an end now that pad, but I can still get a few cards out from it. It has been a great one to work with, that's for sure. I have used a pad punch to add a panel with sea motives. I have also used some wooden stars as embellishments. I hope for some kind of look that puts your mind to the ship sailing in space as well, for you to follow your dream and that is why I went the sentiment that I have picked. Both wish I would dare to sail once more and that I wish that I could get myself to believe that I deserve to follow my dreams. An all this comes from one challenge card. 

You can enter up to three times, that is if one of your creation has a TPS image on it. Other wise you are limited to two entries and you don't even have to colour in your image yourself.


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. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

Take good care and do something that makes you happy!

Colours of the summer over at PFP

Morning and hello!
I am back again. It doesn't seem like you get rid of me these days. Anyway, it's time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and that means a new theme as well. We are looking for "Colours of the summer" this week. 

Ingen fotobeskrivning tillgänglig.
We do have a sponsor and that is Bugaboo that is offering a $12 gift code to use in their fabby store. We will be having one lucky winner for this fun challenge!

This card is made up with tons of left over papers and stuff like that as I try to use up what I have and since I have been doing my card while in bed I have a limited stash around me. I know it's crazy and I have glue on everything but it's ok. I have fun and that's the most important think, besides I try to use the same beddings in that bed. Have two to fix that problem, one in the laundry and one in the bed. LoL


Anyway, it's the most effective way to use up what I have so old stuff goes in there and get used as I don't go up to get other stuff. I have used desiger papers from Glitz and Echo park for sure, it might be another brand there as well but totally unsure. I have also used my beloved old fiskars punch Apron lace or what it was called. My flowers are die cuts and there is some white sprigs as well. I really have been busy with my dies and punches as the butterfly is also made with a die. To finish the card off I have used a bunch a squines to bring in even more colours and some details to the flowers. 

Hope you like this colourful happiness of mine. I love the image by the way. It's called Kids Bella Water melon peeker. It comes from Bugaboo of course, you can really see it on the style of the image. And they are so much fun to colour. I love their broad lines. Fabby and fun!

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

More summerfun!

Morning and hello!
I am back once again with a new card using a Polkadoodle image from the last summer collection I think. I have spent quite a lot of time not being able to sleep so quite a few extra cards are made last few months. And on top of that do I have a cat living under one of my desks in my office and we're trying to socialize him so he can move to a new family. And no, he has to stay under the desk as we has rebuilt it to work as a cage for him. He is not allowed to move very much with his broken leg. 

That is if we can let go of him after putting all the work into this project. It's the cat that moved in here around mid June, the one with the broken leg. We are making progress, not so much me as Mats. He can at least get him to very fast take the food out of his hand and then eating. I am not there yet. But I will get there in the end. At least I hope. I have the time and he has no choise well he has but I don't think he will when we are done he and me. LoL


Ok, the card then. A Polkadoodle image I bought sometime during the spring, or right before summer. Coloured with my Promarkers and having tons of fun doing it. I love making the male cards so I have jet all the female images left to colour in and maybe one or two more of the male ones. This is also just like the card I showed earlier this week been paired up with my Bo Bunny paper pad. Not much left of it now. This time is it not only the papers going retro, even the light is retro looking. I don't have the card left so it has to be this way. Sorry about that. I have just used a paper punch for some texture and hand cut a few banners for decoration. A fun card to make and really relaxing to make it. Maybe the shark isn't that relaxing but you have to take the good with the bad. LoL

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Summerfun!

Morning and hello!
Time for a new creation here over my little blogger's corner. I don't have any design team creations this week so I thought I could use the time to show off some of the stuff that been laying around my desk and my bed. I make tons of stuff during the night when I can't sleep. I just wish that I wouldn't write letters by then because they are totally unreadable when I wake up in the morning. Such crappy writing!

This card looks like it has crappy colouring as well but it isn't as bad as it looks here. I just don't have the energy to retake the photo again. The camera has somehow managed to catch every single pen stroke on this one. Wonder if I had the paper the wrong way or something. Oh well, it's just a card and it works. 

I have used a Polkadoodle image for this one and the favorite paper pad of this summer Bo Bunnys summer days or something like that. Smashing colours with a bit of retro feeling to them. Just lovely. Wish I had bought a pad more, but now it's spending freez for me the coming 6 months of so. Just allowed to by card stock, cardbases and sticky stuff when I really need it. With that said I have a whole Kallax insert filled with glue and sticky stuff and one half of another. Might take me through the coming months. LoL

Well this is it for me for today. I wish you a good day and hope to see you back here soon again.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

A card just for the fun of it

Morning and hello! 
The first week of vacation is half way there and I thought that I would take the chance to post a card just for the fun of it. It doesn't happen that often. I make way more cards than I show off here. I could probably post a card each day for a month or two if I just had the energy for it, but I don't so I just enjoy it when I can. Most of the time it's the photographic part that drives me nuts. The photo is very seldom really good and I can't understand what I am doing wrong.


I know I have used this image quite a lot lately after having forgotten about it for quite some time. The meaning was that I should rotate my stamps a bit and use some older stuff. The only problem I don't have the enery to change stamps. So using the same stuff over and over again. It doesn't help that I have bought new stuff either, but they don't get used either. I really should shop my stash a bit more.

This one is a Sarah Kay stamp that I love. I think I have a post card album with this image as well. It's really lovely. And I know that I have gotten that album from my dad's mum. I have coloured with my Winsor and Newton Promarkers and used a paper pad which I once again don't know the name of... Let's see Pink and Blue from CC Hobby if I am not misstaken. I have used a little doily and a silver ribbon to give some texture and finish off feel to the card. 

Well, that's all for today. I wish you a great week with tons of fun!

Love n hugs
Marie
