Just 4 fun 9/24

Morning and hello!
Hi! Here is a birthday card I have made for a friend of mine, turning 50. It was a bit fun, as I made this card did I don't know what we should give him as a gift but when that day and he got his gift did we give him a voucher where he will drive a fast car on a racing track. He loves sports cars and have once himself.


I chose between this image and a golf image from Lili of the Valley. Both had been a good match, but this got perfect together with the gift we gave him. I am not really sure which brand my designer papers are from, but it's a dark paper pad with lots of metal looking papers, maps and things like that. It's perfect to make male cards with.

Hope you have gotten some inspiration to make a few male cards. Lili of the Valley have some lovely images with a bit of vintage look to them.

Take good care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

Mini Monday 4/24

Morning and hello!
Here comes another of my mini cards that have been made for my pen pals. Lawn Fawn is the brand I have used for this card. 

 It's not big at all, around 10 x 7,5 cm and it is perfect to send out to together with my letters. 

Hope you will dig out your mini stamps and create some fun, charming cards.

Just 4 fun 8/24

Morning and hello!
Hi! Happy Friday to you all, hope you have had a good week and are ready for the coming weekend. 

I have spent a little time creating again. I have used one of the lovely images from hÄnglar and Wings. I don't remember the name of it and couldn't find the stamp set in their shop. 


I have coloured with my Promarkers and fussy cut the image and place it on a die cut circle that I have decorated with another die cut in black and under that is a piece of patterned paper. The designer paper is from an Echo Park paper pad. I have also used a die cut border from Lawn Fawn for the middle border. The black Nuvo Drop has spread a little too much but it is what it is. Anyway, I had fun making the card and hope it spread some joy around the blogging world. 

Take care!

Love n hugs

Monochrome over at PFM

 Morning and hello!
Time again for a new challenge over at Passion for Markers. This week do we have a real challenge for you. Our theme is set "Monochrome". That is one colour + white and black in small dozes if the black isn't the main colour of course. We have a great prize up for grabs this week, so it is well worth giving the theme a try!


Our sponsor this week is Dies to Die for and they offer one lucky winner a gift voucher worth £15! It's an amazing prize for one lucky winner!
Thank you!


As I, once again have some trouble with my hands and fingers which gives me trouble colouring did I get really happy when I came to thing of my little stash of coloured poppies. I have them in a few different shades but I was in the mood for blue shades this time. 

I dug out my flowers from my stash and my die cutting up a whole panel with a nice grid of geometric shapes. I had planned to use it for left over small pieces of papers from other projects so I don't have to waste so much lovely papers. However, this time did I use card stock as a back drop for my flowers. I am pretty pleased with the result and got to use a butterfly that I had coloured as well. The flowers is a little too big for my liking, but it's totally ok. Oh, the flowers are by the way from Alternew. 

Anyway, I hope that you have had a good Easter and that you now feel up to playing along with us over at PFM.

Have a good week and do something that makes you happy!

Love  hugs

Easter fun 3-24

Morning and hello!
This is my last Easter card for this year. I have used another Easter image for this card. It's called Äggjakt. It's so super sweet, the image and the whole set is really sweet.


It's yet another Echo Park paper pad that I have used for this image. It's a spring themed paper pack that I don't have the name off. I have kept this card really simple with only a few paper flowers as decorations. Have a lovely end of the Easter weekend you all!

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
