A new creation

Morning people! Welcome to my 500! post. Who know that I will be at it for this long? LoL Hope you're having a good week. I'm having a so so one that seams to go up and down, with lots of pain and no pain. But really tired all the time! Oh well and worst of it all is that my internet is dropping dead on me every single day and the operator says that it's nothing wrong! So big apologizes for dropping dead here and not being able to drop by your lovely blog as I normally do. I am really try to get this fixed and each week is equally exciting if I need to go to my mum's or partners work to write up my posts.

My card is a new one for the Paper Shelter, this time I have used the ever so popular (at least by or team members over at the Shelter) Carol Singers. This image is so sweet and I really love it. Love the vintage feel to it and their sweet faces. I have coloured with my Letraset family and decorated with lots of bits and bobs.

For example flowers from Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. A tag made with a doo hickey die from Magnolia and so is the lamp post. This time the berries are from Magnolia as well. Bought a whole bunch of them the other week as I love the mix of different berries. All the colours are found in my boxes now. The lovely flower lace is from Wild Orchid as well. The designer papers are from Dove craft. A reused piece of a box is use behind the image and some really heavy gesso as snow around that part. The other snow details is made with snow tex. All edges is also heat embossed with a golden embossing powder. Do I have to say that it's ages since I used that stuff?

So please pop on over to the Paper shelter and join us for our new challenge: Easel card with Christmas theme. Quite handy I hope, to at least get one card done. As always we have a gift voucher up for grabs worth $30 if you play with "our" brand. Three digis is up for grabs if you play with another brand.

Love n hugs
