Time to celebrate over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! I am back for the second time this week. Keeping really busy here. LoL This time I am here with my project for the Paper Shelter and our new theme for the week. I have set the theme to "Time to Celebrate!" Hopefully you fill find some time and join our fun challenge. It's nice and easy. You can celebrate Christmas, halloween, birthdays or what ever you have coming up. It is all about the celebration.

I am not the biggest fan of unicorns but they are starting to grow on me actually. The Paper Shelter keeps coming up with new fun, charming images of them and for my card have I used the newest one. It's called Unicornmania and if you like it, just click the link and you get straight to the image.


I have coloured the fabby image with my Promarkers and some glitter pen, and fussy cut the whole thing out. Glad I didn't mess that up too much as the on/off button of my printer broke today so now I am without printer until that is fixed. I miss my printer already and all of the sudden feel the urge to print tons of stuff. :(

I used a paper pack that I found reorganizing my stash the other week. I think it's connected to Forever Friends, the little brown bear if you all remember? Lovely darker and lighter pastel coloured papers. And as I have a niece turning four later this week, I thought it was a good match with unicorns and kind of girly papers. To add extra girl to the design did I use hot pink sentiment strips saying Hip Hip Hurray in Swedish, some die cuts hearts from Lawn Fawn. To top it all of did I add a gold glittery thicker number from american crafts. A note book punch have I also used. Bought it because I loved the look on layouts but have not gotten to use it for that yet. First time today! Better late than never.


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.

Ok then, time for me to sign off for today. I wish you a great week and hope to see you over at the Paper Shelter. And we have a few spots open on our design team if you are interested. Do contact me and I have a look at your fabby creations.

Take care and do something that make you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Christmas is coming over at Passion for Promarkers

Morning and hello! It's Tuesday again and time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. This time are we going to make Christmas Cards. Nice isn't it? For me it's a pure joy as that is my favorite kind of project to make. So our theme this week is set to Christmas is coming. The only thing you have to do to take part in our challenge is to make a christmas card and colour with your Promarkers. Then you also have a shot at our prize. Winner picked by Mr Random himself!

Bilden kan innehålla: text

Our sponsor this week is the lovely Di's Digi Stamps. They offer a prize of $12 voucher for one lucky winner. That is someone who has coloured with their promarker or their cousins from Letraset.

For my card this week have I used a Magnolia image that I had stamped up ages ago and coloured it up from time to time when I had a minute or two left over. I do also have a stash of pre made back¨+' grounds that I made during the summer as I had trouble sleeping so sat in bed and made cards without any images. It work out pretty well. I finished the paper pad from Panduro. It is all in turquise and lilac, so not my favorite colours but I wanted to finish it off.


Anyway it was good to have it when I made this card as I have tons of homework at the moment. Well, my kids have and for some reason they don't think they can do their home work if someone isn't listening to them. The whole evening is gone by the time we're done. My partner is working tons at the moment so two more weeks do I help to kids and I am pretty messed up by it. I am suddenly learning German again, it was only 30 years ago. LoL

My card, sorry got a bit side tracked again. I added some cotton lace and a few pearls as decorations. And then I added the most adorable snowman from Magnolia. He is so cute! The most wonderful die I have bought in a long time. The sentiment die was a freebee from a Paper crafting magazine. It's still a bit big but it's growing on me.

Anyway, I now hope that you will come along a play with us. You know it's only some weeks left before December is here again and then you will be happy that you started on your Christmas cards today. Just remember to colour with your promarkers or Aquamarkers.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Anything goes optional texture over at Creatalicious Challenges

Morning and hello! It is time for a new challenge over Creatalicious Challenges today. We always have the theme of Anything goes and an optional theme. This time our optional theme is texture. We are sponsored by and the prize offered this time is Mari Digis.


Prize  -  1 of the 3 images the DT used on their projects


I have used the image called  c18 super girl versao md and used a bunch of left over papers from my stash once again. I have started to get good at that lately. Well, to be honest I have used tons of left overs the whole year and I don't have much of them left by now. Now it's all "new and fresh" again. That in the meaning of old papers and paper pads that has hardly been used. LoL

I have coloured with my Letraset / Winsor and Newton markers and some pencils to that for my card this time. I have also dived into my stash of die cuts and used them. The stars are actually new but made out of scrap card stock. Have been sorting that out too. I have also use a border punch, some ribbons from my stash and a few enamle dots. The glitter circle that shows up on two places is a circular frame I cut in two. So there is some glitter card, card stock, ribbon and some graphic paper under the image for different textures on this card. I didn't have the energy to pull out my die cutting mashine and do some embossing which was my first thought when I saw that we had texture as our optional theme. That doesn't mean that you can't do it. Or use some ribbon, lace, twine, fabric etc.

Anyway, I wish you a good day and hope that you will come and join us for our challenge this period of time. Do what you makes you happy and come and play with us over at Creatalicious Challenges.

Love n hugs

Anything Christmas over at the Winter Wonderland

Good afternoon! A bit late today as I have had a real struggle with my pain this week, but at least I got there finally with my card for today. We have a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland for you today. It is an easy peasy one as we have Anthing goes Christmas this two week period. Plenty of time to join us for our challenge.

Sponsor for this challenge is Le Ann's World 101 and here is so info about the sponsor and the prize for this challenge.




Hello all, my name is LeAnn Wariner. I have been painting and drawing since I was a little girl. I am a nurse by profession but, like many of you, am unable to work due to medical conditions. I began drawing again a couple years ago and now bring to you my digital "Stamps by LeAnn's World 101". I look forward to seeing your colorings and creations. Thank you from my world to yours. 
And the prize on offer for the challenge winner is  2 digital stamps from LeAnn's World 101 Etsy store.
I have been using the image called  Decorating LeAnn and coloured it with my promarkers and the left overs of my Trias, I miss them and want them back. Ok, back to my card. The image is a lovely image that is working on her christmas decorations. One of my favourite things to do for Christmas. But it has become a little too much when it comes to my decorations. So a bit fewer this year, if I manage to keep that promise. 


I have used some left over papers that has been in my stash for a long time, not a full year but nearly I think. I know they are from NitWit as I love their style of papers but I don't remember the name of them. I have also used a few dies that I got buying a magazine. Amazed by the sentiment die. Looks really lovely, just a tiny bit big for my taste. I need to make bigger cards. The bulbs dies are also from that magazine. I also used a bit a left over lace and a few enamle dots in pink. There is also a tiny bit of flower soft on the girls stocking. I have a tiny bit left over of that fabby product. 

Well, so a pink and grey christmas card from me today. How will yours look? Because you will come and play with us over at Winter Wonderland, right? :)

Take care and do something that makes you happy everyday!

Love n hugs
Marie

Just for fun

Morning and hello! I am back again with another male card. I have quite many left to show I am affraid. LoL! I promise that I will take them one at time and with some other cards in between.  Just so I can enjoy to post more cards than just DT-cards even if that is great too. 

At this moment am I looking forward to the soccer season to come to an end so we can get our weekends back and don't have to rush from soccer field to soccer field. The season has been really long to be honest. But I also know that in a month or so I will miss it terrible again. 

Ok then to the card. I have used the lovely Maja Design paper pack Called Denim something once again and I have also made this one on the ferry to or from Poland. Gosh! It was a great trip! Got so much done. 
Both the designer papers and the topper is from Maja design. This one is also paired up with some twine in black or maybe navy. I don't remember to be honest and I have been messing with the colours in my photo a bit as I try to figure out how to get a light photo without totally white wash it. No bigger success, but some day will I learn. It will just take some time.

Added to the twine is a fabby charm in the shape of a cowboy hat as I thought it was fitting for this topper. I also added a few wooden stars. They look good to all images and toppers. Perfect embellishment in my mind. As always have I used tons of layers to my card. It looks a bit bare if I not add all of the card stock layers too.

Anyway, I wish you a great weekend and do take time to do something for you!

Love n hugs
Marie
