More Christmas

Happy Friday! Have another little Christmas card to show. This one is made after the lovely sketch from the Sugarbowl using one of the new sweet christmas stamps. Love it, how can I not? Being a cat person. LoL It's coloured with my letraset gang, a total mix of promarkers, tria markers and flexmarkers.


Flowers are from Wild orchid Crafts, the little heart from my stash. The Snowflake hiding in the flowers is from BunnyZoe's and so is the pearls. Over at I heart Promarkers the theme is distressing and since I most of the time use so ink to reinforce (distress) the edges for more dept I enter my card to that challenge too. The DP this time is from Cosmo Cricket.

Love n hugs

Another one for the PFP

Hi and hello! Made another card this night. Yes, had one of those again. So tired of the pain at this moment, but it's good that I get my X-mas cards done. Nothing bad that hasn't got any good with it...

This card was headed for the bin late last night since I got a little help from a four leged friend of mine. He is feeling very sorry for himself at the moment as he has to have a collar on since he had surgery a few days back. He has some strange allergy and get cortisone injections which makes his skin very thin. So it doesn't need much for him to "break" and that happed a few days ago. Now we have to take him back to the wet as we found another wound just not as big. So he wanted attension last night and when he didn't get it fast enough he placed himself on the card which was not dry. There fore I have gone wild with my flowers, to cover up some of the mess. :) Oh well!

The image is from Sugarnellie, flowers from WOC, the little angel from Altheas Mix, golden heart from Pagoni and he, the lovely St. Nick is coloured with my normal promarkers. Of course this card goes into the challenge of PFP as I have used Micheles lovely sketch for the card.

With love n hugs

Another promarker card

Happy Friday! Sitting here again, trying to forget how much pain I am in at this moment. So I decided to make a card, good old crafting! Over at Passion For Promarkers they have a lovely sketch that Michelle has made. Always love to walk with a lovely sketch. Over at I heart Promarkers they want you to include a number in some way. Mine is tiny but it's there, on the ticket in the right lower corner.


The lovely stamp is from Joanna Sheen. Love it to bits! Papers from My Mind's Eye, pearls  and wooden snow flake from Bunny Zoe's and flowers from WOC. As always distressed the edges with vintage photo, give a little more dimension to the card when I don't use a lot of layers.

Love n hugs

A card for the Wild Orchid Challenge

After a few quiet hours, I'm posting again. A tiny bit mad as I had a fight with Adobe Elements before I got this far. It's closing down on me, and now I see that my card is out of focus as well. Hope that will be fixable tomorrow. I really need to take a class to get this going, to get it to work for me instead of me having a battle every time a picture needs fixing, that means always. As soon as the picture gets up here it loses it's colours. I don't do all my card in mute colours, just so you know. :)
So this time over at WOC challenges there is a lovely sketch to follow and there has to be a Christmas theme as well. Tons of flowers from WOC, berries and lace too. The bulbs is actully 3-D:ed but it doesn't show now. The DP are from Bearly Mine Design, Christmas Swirls. Nice and lovely Christmas designs. You find a link in my sidebar.

Now time for a crime story on the telly, just what I need to cool down for now. :)

The second one...

Here comes part two of the double Wendsday and now it's time for the Paper Shelter. This week is one of those when you all keep us very busy as our theme is Anything goes. Yepp! You heard right, you can't go wrong this week.

As always you have a chance of a super duper prize if you enter using a TPS image; a voucher worth $20 can be yours to spend in the shop with tons of goodies. If you enter with out the cutest images around (that being the TPS images) you can still win a digi of your choice if picked by Mr Random.


As always when it's time for Anything goes, I try to make something with the pre coloured images, and now when Veronica and Pedro has extended their products to also have mini kits, boxes, scrap pages etc there is a lot to chose from. This week I have done some kind of decopage stuff with a mini kit using all my square spellbinders to add some dimension to the card and put some flowers around the corners. The image is called Let's go to sleep. A real cutie, isn't she?

So come on and join us over at the Shelter this week. We can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Love n hugs
Marie

A Magnolia card

Here I am again - another card to show of. Going a way for a few days so it will be quiet here in my blog so I thought I do a little posting tonight.

I felt it was a long time since I made a magnolia card and this particular stamp have I never used. It has actually not been in my hands for that long even if it's a bit old. One of the faves when it comes to Edwin. I have paired him up with DP from Bearly Mine's, the digi set called Christmas Wishes. The sentiment stamp is from Magnolia too. Flowers made with a Magnolia die as well. The little guy is coloured with my normal promarkers/triamarkers.

Love n hugs
Marie

Good evening!

Oh well! Couldn't help myself so I'm posting another card here today. I have a tendensy to forget to post cards that I have done if I don't do it right away. And now I try to figure out how to get my photos to look non blurry in the blog, cause they look just fine here. Strange! Wonder if Mr Blogger sits around and take a bite every now and then on pictures that goes up?


My card is made with one of the lovely digi images from the Paper Shelter. A wonderfully sweet kitten colored with my poly chromes. I use them way to seldom. So little time, so many fun things to play with. :) I know that the flowers and lace are from Wild Orchid Craft. I don't remember from where I got the paper pad, but the pearls are from Bunny Zoe. At least something to inform you about. :) I enter this card to the challenge over at Crafting when we can  with the theme of Anything goes.

Love n hugs

Another Christmas card

Here comes a new Christmas card from MI! Donna at Bearly Mine has a new wonderful digi set out now called Christmas Wishes. It's a lot of wonderful brown and blue papers, right up my alley. It's wonderful! If you didn't know it, you really need to go and get it. LoL


Well, I have a whole bunch of LOTV images that I have not had any chance to ink up yet, but yesterday was a good day for it. Took a new med and it kind of kept me awake half of the night, but it was good this time as I didn't feel the pain in my back. So this week over at LOTV Challenges the theme is Missing you, and I thought that this dear little image from last year says it all. A card or a letter to a beloved friend or family member, letting them know you are thinking of them.

Passion for Promarkers again

It's Saturday and quite a lovely day that now is coming to an end. Has been nice and warm today, probably the last time for this year. So fall is on it's way and I really love it. What I don't love is that I have so much pain that I want to cry all the time. Lucky some crafting helps me to forget at least for a while.

So here I am again with a new card For the Passion for Promarkers challenge that has the theme of "Patchwork"  this week. So that is what I spent last night doing. At Papertake Weekly the theme is "Anything goes", so I enter my card there as too. Well, I finished this morning there is a limit for how much I can see when it's 03,00 in the morning when went to bed. LoL


The image is from Prairy Fairy called Gillian and my kitty (something like that). It's so cute like all the Gillian images Roberta draws. They are just fabby. My paper are from Prima, the "Fairy pad". My flowers are from here and there, lace Wild orchid Craft and some stickles here and there as well. Pearls from Bunny Zoe.The strange shine is glossy accent that I used for here glasses, they just screamed for it. :)

It's time for the B team again over at The Paper Shelter

Hello again! A busy day as this is the second post in a few hours. :) It's now time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter. We had tons of entries last week and hope you will join us for this weeks challenge as well. This time we are going for Embossing of any kind! A tiny bit, a lot of it, it's up to you. Dry or wet, anyway, any kind, or maybe a little of both?


The Paper Shelter store is filled with news and some new products called printables. Very sweet boxes of different kind, scrapbooking material etc, and of corse a whole bunch of new wonderful images. For my card I have used the sweet little Sorcerer's Apprentice. Isn't he the cutest? He is coloured with promarkers. A irongate die that has been both dry and wet embossed, and old watch that is also embossed in gold, some stars and a ticket gives him company. The designer papers are from Bearly Mine designs and is actually one of Donna's wonderful freebees.


The Paper Shelter has also decided to raise the value of the winning voucher, so now do you who use a Paper Shelter image the chance to win a wooping $20 voucher to spend in the store. How great isn't that?

Love n hugs
Marie

Challenges for this card

 

Good morning to you all!

It's already Wendsday again and time for a new challenge over at For Fun. This week we have the theme of Kids at Play. So in other words; we would really love to see some fabby cards where kids of all kind are playing.

This week we are sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads once again. Thank you so much for that! The image I have chosen to use is called Painting Fun as at this period my own boys spend a lot of time painting. The messier the better. Wasn't too happy about finding a drawing right on the table the other day, of some reason no one had made it either. It was just there. Strange that pens can draw on their own.


Anyway, I decided to make my card into a birthday card for my youngest nephew as he has his birthday coming up later on this year. Kind of felt that it suited him. I kepy it very simple as I don't think a two year old needs a lot of decorations. Just tons of colour!

Okidoki, I hope to see you around the For Fun challenges this week too as it is such a joy to watch what you all are creating.

Love n hugs
Marie

Have a wonderful afternoon!

Here comes a new Christmas card from me. I have used one of the wonderful new images from LOTV and that's good because I followed the sketch that is this weeks challenge over at their challenge blog. :)

The little darlings are coloured with promarkers and has got a touch of a stamp from Stempelglade as well. Love this stamp with the stains. My "God Jul" stamp is a no name stamp with distress ink. My designer papers are from Bearly Mine and is called Christmas Glee and Christmas Swirls. Two lovely new christmas sets from Bearly Mine. Flowers, metal and pins are as usual from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Now time for a really hot bath and then another soccer game that hopefully goes better than the last one that we lost. :(

Friday again!

Time really flies that's for sure. It's soon time for a game of soccer on the TV but I thought that I pop a card in between. Even the kids are up and waiting for the game. I kind of want them to sleep in tomorrow as I am home alone with them. And if there is something I really hate, it is to get up in the morning. :)

So this card has been sitting on the desk for a few weeks now and I never got around to post it (once again). It's made after a sketch that I followed before, Sugerbowl I think... The darling Snowflake is coloured with the trusty promarkers/triamarkers and the DP are from Nitwit collections. A MFT die, a snow flake die from Woodware and some roses from I am roses and I was done.


I also have a little Chrismas card that I forgot to post this Wendsday. It went up on the challenge blog but not here. Sick kid and a confused mind does those things to you. Well, I had made two cards for that challenge so no big deal. It's a very sweet Michelle Perkett image together with some lovely papers from Bearly Mine Design. The same snow flake punch has been working again and this time I coloured them with white hobby paint and drowned them is glamour dust. Some gemstone is also used here. I enter both this cards over at Passion for Promarkers and I love promarkers, as both has Anything goes theme this week.

Now the big soccer game!

Love n hugs
Marie
