Silver/gold or Embossed background

Morning and hello! Happy Friday to you all. Today is it time for a new challenge over at the Winter Wonderland. This time would we like to see your gold/silver or / and embossed background.

My card is made with a christmas Tilda coloured with distress ink this time. Have found out that my hands can handle a brush better than the markers so from time to time I will use them instead. The dp's are from Authentiqe I think and is actually a wedding collection. Can you see that? LoL

I have used a few punched snowflakes and decorated with some pearls. Then some of that lovely pearl lace from Annelie once again. This time cut a bit shorter and used both up and down on the card. The cardstock are from Panduro and is covered with glitter in silver. Also is a piece of silver net used on the card.

I will ad the sponsors for the challenge as soon as I can, but in the meanwhile. Stay happy and craft!

Love n hugs

Marie

Anything goes over at The Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! A new busy day with tons to do, but now settling down. Today is the beginning of our summer challenge at the Paper Shelter. We have the theme of Anything goes, and this time the team have some time off so we won't be leaving any comments.


As always are you playing with a TPS image you have the chance of a gift voucher worth $30, playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice.

For my card this time have I used Adorable Cowgirl. I coloured it ages ago and today have I matched it up with dp's from LOTV/Nit Wit collections. The pearl lace have I got from my friend Annelie. Thanks! The flowers and the straws are from my stash. Sentiment stamp from Gummiapan.


Ok, sweet and short today as well. A busy weekend coming, and I am struggling a bit with my joints as the weather have changed again. From dry to moist.

Love n hugs
Marie

Christmas in July

Morning and hello. Time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and this week are we celebrating Christmas. Theme is set to Christmas in July.


Once again have I used one of my many Maja design paper pads. This time have I paired them up with a Tilda from Magnolia. As always when it comes to challenges over Passion for Promarkers, you need to use a colouring medium from Letraset to have a chance at the lovely prize from ADFD this week. A gift voucher is up for grabs.


For decorations have I used some gemstones and pearls as center pieces on die cutted snowflakes. A ribbon, bow and a flower from my stash. A punch from unknown brand is used for the snowflake border as well.

Sweet and short today as we are packing for a big soccer tournament. But I will see you back here later this week.

Love n hugs
Marie

A thank you card...

Morning and hello! Every single year since the kids started day care have I made a gift and card for their teachers. This year as well. My final time for the oldest teacher as he is getting a new teacher and a new class in the fall. It is too many teachers to keep up with now. But here is one that I made this year. And this one is for my youngest son's teacher.

I did no colouring this time as I have been so poorly in my hands that I just couldn't hold on to my markers. But luckly for me have I been able to use some toppers from Maja design for the cards to the teachers this time. It is not as fun as doing the whole thing yourself but better than nothing at all, don't you think?


I love the dp with the lemons on it. I actually had lemons as a theme in my apartment before we moved to the house. The design is really simple and I have just used some flowers and glitter glue that had not really dried when I took the picture. Letter stickers from Panduro. They are the perfect size to add to a card with a greeting. The border on the topper is from Spellbinders.

Ok then, this is all from me for today. I hope to see you back here soon and that you enjoy your good moments when they cross your way.

Enjoy the sunshine and some relaxing crafting time!

Love n hugs
Marie

Ribbon/s

Morning and hello! Hope you are enjoying some lovely summer or winter time depending on where you are in the world. We have a new challenge up for you this week over at the Paper Shelter. The theme is nice and easy. Only add a ribbon on your creation and you are ready to go. Can't be much more easy than that can it?


For this card have I used the lovely image called Serena and today I was in a blue mood. I love beige and blue together and since Maja design have some fabby looking dp's in those colours I went with Maja design again. The little lady is coloured with Letraset markers. And today have I used quite a lot of dies to decorate my card. There is also to white ribbon and a piece of beige lace. I love that. Found it the other day and there is plenty of colours of it as well. The pearls are from my stash and in many different sizes this time. A M.S punch is also used for my border.

Well, I do hope you will come and join us and play along in our nice and easy challenge. You don't have to use a TPS image even if we love it when you do. You have the chance of winning a gift voucher worth $30 playing with a TPS image and 3 digis from the store playing with another brand.

Now time to relax again and watch some Brittish crime stories and then off to bed and crochet for a while.

Enjoy the summer and some relaxing crafting time!

Love n hugs
