Make it Manly over at PFP

Morning and hello! It's Tuesday again and time for a new fantastic challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. Hazel has set the lovely theme of "Make it Manly". And either we like it or not we have to make those cards for the mans in our lifes from time to time. It might be a tiny bit harder than adding a bunch of flowers to our creations but there is tons of fun stuff you can use. Metal, cogwheels etc and there is tons of fun male images out there.

For my card have I used an image from Make it Crafty that I have had for ages. I am sorry that I can't remember the name of it, but it sure is fun right? I have also used up some of an old paper pad from (probably) Echo Park. I don't have the name of that one either as I don't have the front of the pad left used a bunch of papers.


There is quite many layers in this card, both card stock and papers. For decorations have I used a bunch of die cuts. I think they are all from Lawn Fawn, but I am not 100% sure. The die cuts comes from my die cut box that I keep on my desk that is filled with die cuts. Both left overs and stuff that I make extra while I am at it and what to lower my stash of left over pieces.

Sponsoring this challenge is Lacy Sunshine who is offering one lucky winner 3 digis of our winners choice. 

So come on and join our fun. The only thing you have to do is to use your Letraset / Winsor and Newton markers to colour on your creation. There is a nice prize up for grabs and some lovely comments from our fantastic team.

Take good care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

Christmas birds over at Winter Wonderland

Good afternoon! A tiny bit late with my post today as I have trouble getting my body to do what I tell it to. Oh well, it has been worth but hopefull it all will turn for the better really soon. Anyway, we have a new fun challenge up for you over at the Winter Wonderland today. The theme is set to Christmas birds. Which naturally means that we want to see some birdies on your Christmas creation this two week period that our challenge lasts.

I have been a bit lazy and used a topper from Lili of the Valley for my card today. It's very cute and lovely. I paired the topper with some Maja design papers from one of their Christmas pads. As always I have no clue what collection it is from. LoL I better start to study the names of the collections soon.

I used a few metal snowflakes in brownish metal and one charm in silver. I tide that one on the card with some twine in red and natural white. I also found a few heart shaped pearls in a lovely brown colour that matched it all perfectly well. For one of the panels have I used my beloved Fiskars punch once again. It gives it all a bit of extra detail. Love that.

So even if its really warm weather and summer is here I hope that you will take some time and come and play with us. It's realaxing to make these Christmas cards now. Even feels a bit colder in the air! LOL

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Letters and/or numbers over at TPS

Morning and hello! How are you? Hope you're having a great week so far. I have been quite some pain again. The weather has change and has become colder again after almost a month with summer temps. It has been great but it has been good to be able to breath again today. Well, now I just need my fingers to get a bit better and hopefully the pain will be gone faster this time. Anyway, this is not why you are here this time. I think and hope that you will have a look at my card for the TPS-challenge this week.

We are having the theme set to "Letters and / or numbers" this week. And it simply means that we want you to write something on your creation. A happy birthday, turning 21 or 50th anniversery or what it can be. We want you to write something as easy as that.



For my card have I used a little older image called "Magical Bubble Bath". A really cute image and it's one of my favourite things to do, to take a bath. So totally relaxing, especially if it is really cold out side. And considering the weather we have here, it will be a while before I take a really hot bath. LoL

I have coloured my image with my letraset / Winsor and Newton markers and I have also used plenty of glossy accent to high light the bubbles and the water. Well, all the wet stuff. The bubbles looks a bit grey on my photo but it's the glossy accent together with the markers that has been really reinforced in the picture and I don't know how to get it to tone down. Sorry about that. I wrote out a little celebration sentiment "Relax! It's your day" and there you have my numbers. The rest of the decorations is a piece of lace and the used of and old border punch from Fiskars.

As always when you play with us over at the Paper Shelter you have the chance to win a gift voucher worth $30. Playing with another brand gives you the chance to win 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy and you can enter up to three time, but one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Polka dots or anything goes Christmas over at TMCC

Morning and hello! How are you? Having a great week so far? I hope that you are doing fine and are ready for a new fun challenge over at TMCC. This week we have our normal Anything goes Christmas or you can go with our optional theme which this week is set to Polka Dots. Nice and easy challenge we hope!

Well friends I have been watching some classes on line with both photo editing and photo learning the last week and I am the first to say that I am not there yet. But I am getting closer to what I am looking for. Got some really nice shots the other week when my youngest was playing soccer. Fun stuff! This picture is a bit yellow and maybe a little too much but you got to try before you get tons better.

I was a bit lazy this week and used a topper from LOTV. It's really sweet but not my colouring, just a topper but for this one it was a perfect way to go. I have used one of Maja Designs paper pads. I think that is A Christmas gift for you. Not 100% sure but pretty. I have match the image up with some red and beige coloured papers from the pad. Then I decided to use some flowers and metal snow flakes. They are almost not showing up, but they are there. I also used some die cut leafs made with some dies from Magnolia, Sweden. The flowers are from my stash and probably are from I am Roses and Wild orchid Craft. Hope you like it!

Well my friends we are in June by now and that means that we only have 6 months left until Christmas is here. I hope you will come and join us for some Christmas fun and maybe you even get a card or two made this week.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Anything goes over at PFP

Morning and helllo! I am back again, since last week was a joined challenge with both teams over at PFP we have now switched weeks, so now I have at least one post each week. How good isn't that? We are going from one easy theme to another over at Passion for Promarkers. This weeks theme is set to "Anything goes" but you need to use winsor &  Newton or the old fashioned Letraset brand for colouring. Nice and easy!

I have used an image from Magnolia, Sweden for my card and as usual I don't have a clue what it's called. But it is an Edwin image and I have coloured it with my Letraset markers and tria markers. The designer papers are from My Minds Eye, so a really old collection as well. Using my stash and all that. I still love the old pads I have laying around but it doesn't seem to help how much I use them, I still have plenty left over. LoL

For once have I not used white card stock to mat my designer papers, I use Java from Bazil I think the brand is. Oh well the colour is Java and it is dark brown. Really lovely colour. I have also used a Alternew die to cut the little flowers made out of triangles then I added card candy to get a center piece on them. I also used some wooden stars and a sentiment stamp from Heidi Swapp I think... I did also use one of my old punches from Fiskars called apron lace. 

Sponsoring our challenge this week is Dr Digi's House of Stamps, which is offering one lucky winner 2 digi stamps. A lovely price to enjoy if you are the lucky winner of our challenge. 

This is all from me for today folks. I wish you a wonderful week and do take some time and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie
