The PaperShelter challenges

Hello and happy Wendsday to you all! It's time again for a fun and easy challenge over at the Paper Shelter. We are doing it really easy for you all this time as we go for the theme of Anything goes. I expect to see many of you playing with us this week.

I also hope that you visit our challenge blog tomorrow as we have a big surprise up for you very very soon. So stay tune for that!

My creation for this theme is a big one. I have used some of the wonderful things that are a part of the Christmas Wishes. It's filled with stuff that makes it so easy to make candy wrappers, greeting cards with CD's, envelopes, boxes etc. I even made a candle with some of the stuff. Sissors are a great tool! I love how easy it is to use these digisets. It gets done in a few minutes. Wonderful during this time of the year when we all are so very busy.


I also invited a green guest for this project. The dragon card is made with the same little fellow as the other stuff, but he actually lives in the PaperShelter's sister store Folkvangar. I just couldn't help myself, just needed to have him as an ordinary card as well. You find him as a digi at the Folkvangar store. My green friend is paired up with some stunning designer papers from Bearly Mine designs called Christmas Frolics.


As always you can win a voucher worth $20 if you use a TPS image on your creation or three digis of your choice if you use another brand of image. Stunning prizes as always!
So I better sit down and start waiting for all lovely creations that will come around here this week. I know I will be busy commenting!

It's For Fun!

Good morning and hello! When you read this I'm at the hospital working my butt of at a three week rehab period. Hoping that I will feel better and have more energy. I know for sure that I won't be having that during the eves. LoL
So to keep it short and sweet, we are celebrating Christmas over at For Fun this week, so we want you to show us your Christmas cards, just like you have every month that has five Wendsdays in it during the year. And as usual we are sponsored by Michelle Perkett. This time have I used the very sweet Christmas Kisses. The images is such a joy to colour. She's paired up with some old Dovecraft paper and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Some bakers twine and a snowflake finish the whole thing off.

I do hope you come and join us over at FFC this week. I look forward to see your stunning creations.

Love n hugs

Another one for PFP

Even if I know that I have three weeks at the hospital coming up now. Started today and are really tired. I couldn't sleep the other night so another card got made. Nothing relaxes me more than colouring so that's what I did. And when I was finished with that I realized that time was way too much, but keept going anyway. The theme over at PFP is still "swirls and sparkle". New challenge up tomorrow. How fun!

I love this paper pad from Prima. The colours are to die for and it works perfect together with Kraft card stock. I die cutted a few trees like so many other crafters out there. A Magnolia swirl and a bunch of flowers and berries from WOC that I covered with dimond glitter glue. My trees got some glamour dust over them to ad some more sparkle over the card. Over at Craft your passion the theme is anything christmas so I enter there as well. Lili of the Valley are brave and have the theme of Anything goes, I play there as well.

Now however it is time to go to bed, early tonight. A very long day tomorrow. Lots of work outs and new people to meet.

Have a wonderful eve!

Hello again!

Second post for today and that means PaperShelter time. This week I playing with the A-team again, substituting the whole month of November. Lots of fun of course. This time the theme is Christmas Sparkle (using red, green and gold). That's nice and classic isn't it? The greatest passion of mine is to make Christmas cards so this was right up my lane.

I have used both the digi and the papers from the PaperShelter. The wonderful digi is called "Getting ready for Christmas" and the papers are from the paper pack called Christmas Spirit. Lovely papers in rich red, green and golden colours. Perfect for all those Christmas cards. The banners says happy Christmas in Swedish.

Some card craft candy together with some flowers from Wild Orchid Craft tops the card of. As always I have coloured my image with my Letraset family.


As always there is a voucher up for grabs worth $20 if you is the lucky winner picked by Mr Random. If you are chosen and have been playing with another brand of stamp/digi, then you win 3 digis of your choise. Great that too, isn't it? I can't wait to see what you lovely crafters comes up with for this challenge.

Love n hugs

Time for Passion for Promarkers

Good Evening to you all! It's pooring down rain here today. So dark and wet. Shouldn't it be snow that comes down by now? Oh well, to a contrast to all darkness outside; Passion for Promarkers has the theme of White on White this week. Thought I would enter that one, as well as Just Magnolia Hänglar Stänglar which has the theme of ribbons.

A lot of embossing to get some contrast again. I have used  snowflakes and Swiss dots. There is also a bunch of dies used from Magnolia as well. Two big brads with pearls on them is center pieces in the flowers, and around the used Marianne die I put even more pearls from dimension. In the back ground a silver grey and white ribbon from Joanna Sheen.

Enjoy your evening!

Love n hugs

A new challenge over at the Paper Shelter as well.

You know it's Maries magical Wendsday again with two posts in one day. Wonder if I ever will get used to this? I impress myself every time. LoL

So this week I am playing with my "own" team, the B team from the Paper Shelter Love you guys! You always make me so proud! As I love winter and snow the theme was simple for this challenge. Snow flakes is our theme this week. They can be on your images, on your paper, as embellishments you name it. I actually wouldn't mind some snow right now, or how about next coming weekend when first of Advent is here. Very early this year. Love this time of the year! Yum!


Ok, back to the important stuff. As always we have a voucher up for grabs if you use a PaperShelter image. It's worth $20. If you enter with another company stamp or no stamp at all you are up for a choice of three images of your choice from the Paper Shelter store. Wonderful isn't it?

My card then. I have used the lovely image called Warm in the winter. The little gal and her kitten is paired up with some designer papers from Bearly Mine Designs called Christmas fun. On the edges and on the flowers I have added "some" heavy gesso from the art store. Wanted some snow effect and it looks fine on the flower but my printed paper "ate" the gesso. Got a little messy look. Oh, anyway flowers are from WOC. The big snow flake is made with a die from Cuttle bug I think. Rest of decos from my stash.

Hope to see you join us over at the Paper Shelter this week.

With love n hugs
Marie

A new challenge over at For Fun

Hello! Hope you are doing a lot better than me. The flu has cought me and I feel totally lost in space. And it's not just me that is sick. Both kids sounds like old mashines and have high fever. This really is the down part with the fall, all infections that starts to "visit".

This week we have a recipe challenge for you all. You have to use One food item, two designer papers and three buttons, eyelets or brads.


The clear Dollar stamps has been kind enough to sponsor this challenge for us and have provided us with a bunch of fun, and cute stamps and sentiments. A big thank you for that.

I have used the ChocolateBox-truffle together with the sentiment Candy is sweet. I loved colouring the image, as it was kind of bold and still some details to it. I paired it up together with some designer papers from Dove craft. Added some buttons from Crafty Emma's store and added a golden border around the image. Also a ribbon from Panduro is added for something a little extra happening.  A very clean and simple card, but all I had energy for this week.

It will be fun to see what all you other people comes up with when joining our challenge. See you over at For Fun.

Love n hugs
Marie

Long time no seen

Has had a lovely visit from a friend last week, and on top of that both my boys got sick. So nothing much has been done here lately. However, I found a card that I have not put up here yet, so I thought why not?

It's a very clean and simple card. This will probably go over sea when it's time to send out this years X-mas cards, and as I have around 30 pen pals around the world it would be too expensive to decorate them too much. The postage is way too expensive in this country. LoL Money that I could spend of crafting goodies. :) The image is from LOTV and the designer papers are from Bearly Mine Designs; Christmas Swirls. Have just used a metallic "ribbon" in the shape of snow flakes and some flat pearls. The little Christmas buddy is coloured with the letraset family and some polycroms. I enter this card to the challenge over at LOVT where the theme is Creature Comforts.

Love  n hugs

New challenge at the Paper shelter too

Morning once again! Yes, I know I am back again. The whole month of November I will be double posting all Wendsdays. I'm guest playing over at the A team as well. We lost a dear member of our A team due to lack of time. Strange how much time it takes to live. :) So you'll be seing double of me over at the Shelter for a while.

This week the theme is set to All in Pink! How fun is that? I fell in love with this little ballerina as soon as Veronica sent it over and now was a perfect time to use her. All dressed in pink. I have paired her up with some Nitwit papers that has been laying on my desk for a while. Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and so is the ribbon. Pearls from Bunny Zoe. Sentiment from Magnolia Sweden.


The prize up for grabs is as usual a gift cerificate worth $20 if you use a Paper Shelter image. Three (3) images of your choise if you use a stamp or digi from another company. Lots to play for isn't it? Hope to see you there!

For Fun time again

Morning! It's mid week and it's time for a new challenge over at For Fun.We would like you to thank your military.  Let me tell you this is a really hard challenge when you live in Sweden. We hardly have any military to talk about as the politicians give them less money each year. On top of that this country is calling itself neutral. So with that in mind and nowere to send a military thank you, I made a thank you card that can be sent to anyone. So a thank you card it is. The sentiment says "Good friends make good times better and bad times easier. Thank you for being my friend!"

I kind of covered the whole card with roses around a heart made with spell binders. Then my boys came and thought it needed even more flower and on they went. They are very good at following the lines. :) A piece of lace and some liquid pearls and some half pearls and we was done. The designer paper is from Bearly Mine, and the digi set Paper Lace. The flowers is a mix from WOC and I am roses.

I hope you join in our challenge. If you like me don't have much of a military around, make a thank you card to someone that deserves it.

Love n hugs
Marie

We are sponsored by the lovely Bugaboo once again. This little cutie is called Scene it Brithday Bears. That's why my card is for my niece.

The designer papers are from Dovecraft. The letters are from Prima. I totally love them. So stylish and perfect size. I need some more of those. The little cup cake is a brad that I had for ages.
