Finally back

Hello, hello hello! I am back, finally back! It feels like I have been gone forever but I have just been busy as the kids has been off school for a week. Less time to do your normal things then, and last Saturday we celebrated W. 6th birthday with relatives and close family. I have even been so busy that I forgot to make him a card! Now I have to do it afterwards as he says he needs his yearly card. LoL So typical for him! A bought one was not ok, cause mum makes them much better, he said. Guess if I got some energy back after that?

I have a new card to show and this time I have a birthday card made. My youngest son was at a birthday party a few hours before W started his, so I had to make a card for the neighbor's daugther as P said you have to have a card when you go to a party. They are well trained my boys aren't they?


This is what I came up with for Ebba. P picked out the image himself and gave me rebuff on my colouring. He wasn't happy with the colours I started with, so I re coloured Tilda wit Daisy and he was a happy kid. I coloured her with distress inks.  I paired her up with some designer papers from Bearly Mine Designs called Petunia Parade. With some black cardstock it made the whole card a little more interesting for a kid.

I also used some glitter strips from Anita's and used a good amount of silver coloured stickles. All the dies used on this card is from Doo Hickeys, Magnolia. For some more fun details I also used a pearl pen from my stash to make a few dots here and there.

And since it is Tuesday and my week to host the challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges, I better tell you all our theme for the week. We are going all in and have Anything goes this week. So I bet I will see you over at the Bearly Mine Challenges, right?

Love n hugs
Marie
