Snow and ice

Hello and g'day to you all. It's Tuesday and I have a brand new creation for you to look at. It happens that I was lucky enough to get picked as a guest designer for Papertake Weekly, so I will be spending my Tuesdays blogging cards for that wonderful challenge blog that I have been following since I started my own blog. There was three of them I always took part in: Passion for Promarkers, Papertake Weekly and Just Magnolia when that was around. At this point I am a member of the PFP team and now I get to guestdesign for the Papertake Weekly challenge blog. I am really happy, humble and happy again for this chance. And I feel so blessed and thankful for this chance.  Thank you ever so much for bringing me on to the team for the coming three months. I hope to make you all pround and myself  not least. I feel it will be a change making cards for the same challenge every week, but I also feel the joy it will bring and hopefully it will help me get some better routines to my days, instead of just sitting in the sofa sorting out all the photos for the kids. LoL

So this weeks theme is very fitting for this period of time and it is snow and ice - blue and cold. Nice theme isn't it? So luckly for me I had an image coloured up in the fitting colours and just needed to get it down to card which was a lot harder than I had planed for. Lol However, one of the best things with the Papertake Weekly challenges is their little library of sketches they have on an extra page. I really love that. I go there all the time when I have no inspiration to get a kick start and I did so this time as well. I started off with sketch #73, took away an element and got the card done. Unfortunatly the weather has been horrible this weekend so it was not easy to get a good photo of this card. Anyway I have done it and I so happy I could find the time to fit it in as I have been away for a few days. Got back a day early as Willy started to feel better with his cold.

Mats will be home later on tonight from Istanbul and it will be good to be two adults in the house again. But don't tell anyone, It has been great being alone even if it was over at my parents house. Kind of like the old days, I loved that. Times like this gives me flashbacks to when I was young living at home with mum and my brothers. And when I had it, I took my bike and rode it up to my grannys apartment and stayed there for a few days. Best time of my life! She was my best friends and I will miss her forever, even if I know she is with me every single day. ;)

Maybe I should say something about my card as well. A bit of lack of time and I still ended up with this little creation of mine. Two Magnolia images merged together for a little winterscenery and coloured it with my Letraset family. Then I used some of the really stunning and high quality designer papers from Bildmålarna. I love the colours of those papers. I also used some silver colored corrugated paper as backing for my image. Some adorable snowflakes from Joy Crafts bought at Moa Pysell. For my little flower cluster did I also make a little backing page with some snowflakes and then added the lily lookalike flowers. Added a few pearl stars in to that and topped it of with a snowflake silver charm and some silver sprays to that. Edwin and Jasper has also gotten a few pearl stars to keep them company. Gemstones in blue comes from Bo Bunny and I had them for ages. The time will come for everything, doesn't it?

Ok, I probably should shut up by now so I better do that. But I see you soon again. Lots of crafting will be going on here the coming weeks busy, busy as I will soon start school again I hope. They just seem to be able to find a place for us to be. And this is a big ecducational company that has these kind of troubles. Just amazing. For a full control of the challenge, theme and the rules of the blog, why don't you drop by and have a look for yourself.

Love n hugs
Marie
