Colours of the summer over at PFP

Morning and hello!
I am back again. It doesn't seem like you get rid of me these days. Anyway, it's time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers and that means a new theme as well. We are looking for "Colours of the summer" this week. 

Ingen fotobeskrivning tillgänglig.
We do have a sponsor and that is Bugaboo that is offering a $12 gift code to use in their fabby store. We will be having one lucky winner for this fun challenge!

This card is made up with tons of left over papers and stuff like that as I try to use up what I have and since I have been doing my card while in bed I have a limited stash around me. I know it's crazy and I have glue on everything but it's ok. I have fun and that's the most important think, besides I try to use the same beddings in that bed. Have two to fix that problem, one in the laundry and one in the bed. LoL


Anyway, it's the most effective way to use up what I have so old stuff goes in there and get used as I don't go up to get other stuff. I have used desiger papers from Glitz and Echo park for sure, it might be another brand there as well but totally unsure. I have also used my beloved old fiskars punch Apron lace or what it was called. My flowers are die cuts and there is some white sprigs as well. I really have been busy with my dies and punches as the butterfly is also made with a die. To finish the card off I have used a bunch a squines to bring in even more colours and some details to the flowers. 

Hope you like this colourful happiness of mine. I love the image by the way. It's called Kids Bella Water melon peeker. It comes from Bugaboo of course, you can really see it on the style of the image. And they are so much fun to colour. I love their broad lines. Fabby and fun!

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs

More summerfun!

Morning and hello!
I am back once again with a new card using a Polkadoodle image from the last summer collection I think. I have spent quite a lot of time not being able to sleep so quite a few extra cards are made last few months. And on top of that do I have a cat living under one of my desks in my office and we're trying to socialize him so he can move to a new family. And no, he has to stay under the desk as we has rebuilt it to work as a cage for him. He is not allowed to move very much with his broken leg. 

That is if we can let go of him after putting all the work into this project. It's the cat that moved in here around mid June, the one with the broken leg. We are making progress, not so much me as Mats. He can at least get him to very fast take the food out of his hand and then eating. I am not there yet. But I will get there in the end. At least I hope. I have the time and he has no choise well he has but I don't think he will when we are done he and me. LoL


Ok, the card then. A Polkadoodle image I bought sometime during the spring, or right before summer. Coloured with my Promarkers and having tons of fun doing it. I love making the male cards so I have jet all the female images left to colour in and maybe one or two more of the male ones. This is also just like the card I showed earlier this week been paired up with my Bo Bunny paper pad. Not much left of it now. This time is it not only the papers going retro, even the light is retro looking. I don't have the card left so it has to be this way. Sorry about that. I have just used a paper punch for some texture and hand cut a few banners for decoration. A fun card to make and really relaxing to make it. Maybe the shark isn't that relaxing but you have to take the good with the bad. LoL

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

Summerfun!

Morning and hello!
Time for a new creation here over my little blogger's corner. I don't have any design team creations this week so I thought I could use the time to show off some of the stuff that been laying around my desk and my bed. I make tons of stuff during the night when I can't sleep. I just wish that I wouldn't write letters by then because they are totally unreadable when I wake up in the morning. Such crappy writing!

This card looks like it has crappy colouring as well but it isn't as bad as it looks here. I just don't have the energy to retake the photo again. The camera has somehow managed to catch every single pen stroke on this one. Wonder if I had the paper the wrong way or something. Oh well, it's just a card and it works. 

I have used a Polkadoodle image for this one and the favorite paper pad of this summer Bo Bunnys summer days or something like that. Smashing colours with a bit of retro feeling to them. Just lovely. Wish I had bought a pad more, but now it's spending freez for me the coming 6 months of so. Just allowed to by card stock, cardbases and sticky stuff when I really need it. With that said I have a whole Kallax insert filled with glue and sticky stuff and one half of another. Might take me through the coming months. LoL

Well this is it for me for today. I wish you a good day and hope to see you back here soon again.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!

A card just for the fun of it

Morning and hello! 
The first week of vacation is half way there and I thought that I would take the chance to post a card just for the fun of it. It doesn't happen that often. I make way more cards than I show off here. I could probably post a card each day for a month or two if I just had the energy for it, but I don't so I just enjoy it when I can. Most of the time it's the photographic part that drives me nuts. The photo is very seldom really good and I can't understand what I am doing wrong.


I know I have used this image quite a lot lately after having forgotten about it for quite some time. The meaning was that I should rotate my stamps a bit and use some older stuff. The only problem I don't have the enery to change stamps. So using the same stuff over and over again. It doesn't help that I have bought new stuff either, but they don't get used either. I really should shop my stash a bit more.

This one is a Sarah Kay stamp that I love. I think I have a post card album with this image as well. It's really lovely. And I know that I have gotten that album from my dad's mum. I have coloured with my Winsor and Newton Promarkers and used a paper pad which I once again don't know the name of... Let's see Pink and Blue from CC Hobby if I am not misstaken. I have used a little doily and a silver ribbon to give some texture and finish off feel to the card. 

Well, that's all for today. I wish you a great week with tons of fun!

Love n hugs

Winter or Christmas buildings over at Winter Wonderland

Morning and hello!
A wee bit late but here I am. I got struck by heavy headaches againg yesterday and it caused me some delays for this post but now I'm here, only a few hours late. Quite well done if I might say so myself. And I got a great surprise in the early mail today. MY new TENS came and now I will get it going as soon as it is charged. Let's hope it will help all the shoulder pain I've got which is what causes the headaches.

As an avid cardmaker I created Twinkle Lane so I could make unique characters and papers to make wonderful cards.

And the prize on offer to our winner is:
a choice of 3 items from the Etsy shop - either;
-3 digi stamps
-3 digital paper packs
-or a mix of digis and papers

Anyway, back to the card. The card is for the Winter Wonderland and we have a new monthly challenge up for you today. Christmas or winter buildings. I have used the fabby image called  Christmas Lodge digi and Let It Snowman digi paper. 


It might now have been the best coloring of my life but it's done and it was quite relaxing doing it. And I even caused a little snowstorm over the image with some Liquitex acrylic ink. Superfun to use and it kind of dries before it has hit the paper. I think it's my new fave in the craft room. There is pleny of colours of it as well both opac and other versions of it. 

I did colour this image with my copic markers for once. Well, it was me being lazy to be honest. I have my Promarkers in the basement and I had no energy left to go and pick the up so copic for once. I have paired up the image with the sponsor papers that I got as well. They are called Let it snow and that's kind of why I added the snow on the image as well. It made it a little more fun. I have used a simple tree button to decorate with as well as a charm and some old gemstones that I thought was nice to use up as well. There is also some pieces of bakers twine in marine blue and white added to the card. 

And this should be it for this card. I hope you'll take the time to enter our challenge and get your Christmas cards going for the coming season. It's getting closer each day.

Take care and do something that makes you happy!
