Make it feminine over at PFP

Morning and hello! I am back again, with a dizzy feeling of is it really over already? That is my vacation. It's only this week left and then has four weeks passed by just like that. Tons has happened during this time. I have gotten my meds to work fairly well. There is still some hickups but not as often as before and I feel quite good. I can use my body more than I have in a long time and that is smashing. At the same time am I more tired in the evenings but my head is still right awake. 

We have spent five days in Vimmerby seeing the kids play Bullerby Cup with 166 teams in for classes. They did both well. Willy managed to keep the goal safe and only let 4 goals in during 6 games. Philip scored 3 or 4 times and assissted in many more of them. Great games from three teams! The best part was to use a "few" bottles of "champange" over the teams. You forget you have lost the last game then.

The day after the soccer tournament did we go to Nybro and picked up our new cat. It's a new rescue cat that has lived outside for five or 6 years only having access to some old houses with no heat in it. An old lady has fed him and the rest of the gang of about 20 cats. He is probably the father of all the cats in the gang but now is he neutered. He is just like Bullen was; red and white and looks like he has been in a war but still he loves humans and have already spent a night in my bed. They have called him Goldfinger but we have renamed him to Lukas Viking. He looks like a warrior. 

And by the time this goes live are we, me and my family on the way home from Poland. We have had a few days at a spa hotel relaxing and looking around in Sopot and nearby towns. Have been to a museum learning more about the WW II and the zoo close by.

Well then now to my card.We have a new fun challenge up for you over at Passion for Promarkers. Our theme is Make it feminine. A nice and fun challenge for the lovely ladies in your life. I have used a sponsor image from our lovely sponsor A day for daisies. Which is also sponsoring our challenge with a prize of a voucher worth $12. It's a great prize for one lucky winner providing the card makers has used promarkers from Winsor & Newton or Letraset.

I have used a paper pad from story line or something like that. Basic black or something like that is it called. I have used a bunch of stuff from my stash to make this card. There is some lace, a few metal black swirls from Prima, a punch that I can't remember where it's from but the Art Deco style suited the image really well. I have also added a few gemstones both on her belt and hair decoration as well as in two corners. I have also used a swirly stamp from stash. And that is it. Ready and done. Now I just need to remember to add the card to a few challenges. The image is called Classic Fashion and you find it here.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Anything goes or under the sea or fairytales over at CC-challenges

Morning and hello! Time for a new creation from me for a for me new design-team. I have now joined the Creatalicious Challenge team. I am joining the team as from today and hope to be a good teamie and hopefully inspire some of my readers as well. I will be posting for the Creatalicious Challenges the last day of each month. It will be a fun journey and I hope you will join me.

This time our challenge theme is "Under the Sea or fairytales". So something that lives in the sea or is related to fariytales.

We are sponsored by the lovely Polkadoodles and my image is called Octavia Moonfly unicorn. Just click the link and you will find it.



They are offering a prize  of   £6.75 / US $10 digi voucher for one lucky winner to enjoy.

I have coloured with copic markers for this challenge and it's way different from my beloved promarkers but I will get there. I am still enjoying the promarkers hard nib on the markes more than the brush nibs on my copics. I printed the detailed image fairly bit which didn't leave me much room for any special design details.

However, I managed to get a ribbon added and to tie a bow to the card. I have also used a few star shaped glitter details to the card. The designer papers are from Nitwit Collections / LOTV. I have also used a glitter pen on the wings and the unicorn. 

Ok then, I am a bit tired at the moment as we just got back home from a soccer tournament and it has been really hot. I do hope that you will come and join us for our fun challenge this two week period. I see you over at the Creatalicious challenges!
 
Take care and do something that fills your day with joy!

Anything goes over at the Paper Shelter.

Morning and hello! It's time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter. Today is the start of our new summer challenge which will continue over two weeks time. And this time is the team off from the commenting if you wonder if it's silence from our lovely team.

We have as always when we have our "break for the team" challenges an "anything goes" challenge. That means you can do what ever you want to for the challenge but you can still only enter 3 times and at least one of your creations has to have a TPS image on them. Nice and easy.

For this card have I once again used a pre couloured image and this time is it called Lovely Umbrella. It has some stunning colours that takes me back to spring but where Veronica is who makes all the fabby TPS images is, is it spring. LoL

As I didn't colour my image this time either it went a bit faster to make the card and it felt good to finish the card as I have so much other stuff to deal with at the moment. But now it's slowing down a tiny bit. Three more weeks of vaction for me and I really need it. Anyway back to my card. I have used a paper pad called Folksong from Simply Create.

The card is decorated with some lace, pearls and sequins that is transparent and sparkle when lights hits them. I have also used a heart that is shaped with tiny pearls and a doily cut with a die from Magnolia. At one of the papers have I also used some shimmer spray in silver and white but it's showing very little here. A detail to find when you look at the card IRL.


As always when we have our challenges we have a gift voucher worth $30 to give away to a winner who has used a TPS image on their creation. Playing with another brand gives you the chance to win 3 digis of you choice.

Do come and join our fun challenge and then have some relaxing time for yourself. You deserve it!

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

Punches or dies over at PFP

Morning and hello! Hope you are doing fine and are having a nice week so far. We are in the middle of the summer and the days are filled with sun, sea and soccer in my case. This week is the most important in my kids' life for this summer. At least if you ask the youngest one. It's his third time playing the soccer game called Bullerby Cup in Vimmerby. My olderst will also be playing but for him it's not as important. He doesn't have that attitude. Likes winning but life goes on if they don't.

Anyway, I am hosting this week's challeng over at Passion for Promarkers and I have set the theme to Punches and/or dies. You need to use at least one of them for your creation. You don't have to use both. Should be nice and easy for you all. 

I have used a flower punch, leaf punch and a border punch. I have also used a frame die from Lawn Fawn. There is also some pearls, lace and letter stickers for decorations on this card. I did also use the image I got from DSB and made the image into a designer paper and coloured it all in. I used the same colour for the image as I used for my home made designer paper. It was kind of fun to do this. 


I have also used some designer papers from First Edition but my pads from them has all gotten mixed up as the they split as soon as they are used once. So I have no clue of from which pads the papers are from. I think this is all about this card. The letter stickers are from Panduro from my ever lasting stash. LoL

You have a chance to win this lovely prize if you use your Letraset / Winsor & Newton markers for your creation. So do come on and join us over at PFP this week. It's a nice and simple challenge for you all.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

Ribbon, lace and/or twine over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! A tiny bit late with this post as I got a bit side tracked last night. I kind of enjoyed sitting outside in the very warm night until it was really too late to finish all of this off. I did even managed to sit outside to create my card which was really lovely. Today is it way too hot to be outside again so I think I will spend the day in the basement again, not to be cooked by the sun. ;)

Anyway, today is the day of a new challenge for the Paper Shelter and this time I thought that we should use up some of our ribbon, lace or and twine as I know I have plenty of it laying around and for me they look a lot better on a card or on a layout and in the boxes.


I have used one of our newer images from the Shelter and it's called Spirit of the woods. A lovely image in fall colours. I have paired it up with some designer papers from Primas Fairy Flora paper pad that I really love because of the stunning colours but it's kind of hard to use for some reason. Here it work out great with the darker colours on the dp's. I have used the pre coloured image from Veronica once again as I at the moment having a bit hard finding the joy in colouring like I used to but I am sure that it will come back to me soon again. I just have to miss it a bit first I think. :)

The card has many layers and are a bit popped up as well as the hemp twine I have used is a bit thicker than "normal" twine. I have also added a piece of paper ribbon to be used on gifts under it. Tide a bow with it as well and added one of my many hundreds of charms as well. And then some Card Craft Candy or what they are called for a bit of interest. I then finished the whole thing off with some gold splaters with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine. So a very settle detail with gold is found on the card as well.

As always when you play with us and use a TPS image you have the chance of winning a gift voucher worth $30. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice from the store. Pretty nice as well.

Ok, this is it from me for today. I see you back here next week when I have a card for the PFP challenge and for our summer challenge here at the Paper Shelter up as well.

Take care and do something that makes you smile!

Love n hugs
Marie
