Sketch time!

Hi and welcome back to my little corner. Colds going around in the house again so everything is very slow here. This time it's me and Philip, the youngest. I'm also starting to wonder if my crafting cat has got it as well. He is both coughing and sneezing. LoL Just kidding, well he is doing all that but he has spend a few hours chasing a poor youngster cat that came for a visit yesterday, and they was tumbling around under our porch. And my crafting cat Tage is actually allergic to dust and some plants even if they are almost frozen by now. But it looks really funny when both me, Philip and Tage is sneezing at the same time.

It's time for a new challenge over at Papertake weekly again. And we have now come to the end of November and that means it's time for a new sketch. So much fun! I love a good sketch and I kind of go to the little library of sketches over at Papertake Weekly when I don't have any inspiration or clue of what to do. I take a look there and always find something I can use to get my creativity going. So take a look at the new fabby sketch and put it to use, or do like I, use the sketch library found on the extra sketch page. For my card I have used the new sketch with number #85 I think. Love it!

Ok, when everybody is busy making Christmas cards I have to make plenty of boy's birthday cards. This week is no exception. One of my nephews had his birthday the other day and his passion is sports, dogs and being outside. However, they can't have any dog in their house as he is terrible allergic to them. They had to give up their rottweiler Jetz, but he is living the good days over at my parents place now. My nephew can at least see him during the summer when they can spend more time outside together. So this card is especially made for him and I even got the perfect image for it from the PaperShelter. It's called My cute Rottweiler and that is probably not what you would call a rottweiler in the first sight, but they are an amazing breed when taken care of the right way. Friendly, big teddy bears that loves their family.

My image is coloured up using my Letraset family markers and it matches, well at least some of the dp's from My Minds Eye that I used. They are from the pad called Fine and Dandy, True blue. Love all of those pads and almost always ending up using them for my boy's cards. I used some alpha stickers to spell out the name of my nephew and put a big "4" in the star as it is how old he is now. And I couldn't make a doggy card with out using one of my fabby bone charms. Some orange twine is also used together with some card candy to give some extra little details to my creation. The colours look a bit bright on the card but IRL if wasn't as bad. LoL

So come on and play with us over at Papertake Weekly this week and show what you can do. Plenty of great inspiration from the team is to be seen there.

Love n hugs

Hej på dig vännen!
Inte så länge sen jag var här men tror att jag bara "smög lite i buskarna" då, utan att ens säga hej så sa till mig på skarpen denna gång att jag allt får ta & hyfsa till mig lite ;-)
Alltid lika roligt att titta in här, du har ju alltid så läckra & annorlunda papper & motiv som man inte ser "överallt" annars - förutom det självklara att allt du gör är kanonsnyggt förstås!
Hoppas att ni ska krya på er snabbt därhemma & slippa "rundgången".
Kram på dig,
