Winter fun

Hi and welcome to the Mid week post of mine. A bit late, but better late than never I hope. Still running behind with everything since the water leak last week. But we're getting there and soon we don't have to boil our water anymore I hope. Let me tell you it takes time. I am one happy mum knowing I don't have any toddlers anymore. Makes it so much easier. Philip was not old when this happened with the main water supply last time. It was no fun at all. It's not now either, but easier to handle. LoL

Ok then. My TPS card for this week challenge theme Winter fun. I am one of those horrible persons that really love snow, ice and cold. I feel kind of free of some kind when it's time for this season. The nature looks stunning covered in snow and I don't have to worry about thunder storms and that makes my life so much easier. I've got the massive fear of thunder and it doesn't even have to be near me. So more snow and ice please. :)

 If the weather permits I try to retace the photos tomorrow as these are shifting to much in colour for my own liking. :)

One of the first things, well one of the best things I remember from starting school was learning to skate and I still love it even if I can't do as much of it as I used to with my joints putting an end to it. Still love to do it from time to time and my kids does do. So therefor I picked this wonderful image to use for our winter fun theme, Fantasy on Ice. Such a pretty little ice skater she is!

I decided to make another easel card as I love to make them, but hate photographing them. Grr all the time. I do need to learn this and I do need to get a better camera. I miss my old Canon EOS  but it's playing tricks on me, something with the connection to the memory card, work sometime and not at all other times.

I paired Miss Fantasy with some really old designer papers from Magnolia and started to decorate the card and kind of never stopped. Well, I had fun and it was really relaxing even if I missed the dead line totally for the challenge over at TPS. But it was worth it. I am really pleased with my card for once and it was so relaxing to make this as a change from all soccer cards I have to make in the coming week. Well, only two more. I think I need a new birthday theme set for next year for my kids' friends. LoL

Hej Marie!!

Hoppas allt ordnat sig efter vattenkatastrofen! Vi klarade oss men det var ju nära.. (områdesmässigt)
Kan tänka mig att det varit sjukt jobbigt..

Bättre sent än aldrig men ditt kort var värt att vänta på..jisses va fint!!! Älskar det..härliga vintriga detaljer och ett sagolikt motiv!! Är så sugen på att köpa hem det där embossingpulvret som du har runt motivet, var har du köpt ditt?

Önskar dig en bra vecka!

Kram Lena
