Pins and Pearls

Morning and welcome back to my little corner of the blogging world. I am so tired and frustrated by all the illnesses that passes by this house. P is sick again and as usual it's fever and cough. Oh well, how fun life is. Some day it has to turn for the better. Hopefully we get to see a doctor later on today. Yesterday they were all busy and I made my call by 08:00. Wonder how many of the 8 doctors that was actually there? Hmmmm....

Ok, feels better now so we can go on to this weeks challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. This weeks host is me! I have set the theme to "Pins and Pearls" as I have tons of pins but never ever uses them. It would feel good to lower the stash a bit. Like that would ever happen. LoL Anyway, I think I should use the pins I have and enjoy doing it as they look really pretty and add great detail. Pearls are almost always on my cards so that is not much of a challenge. Remember that you can use any kind of pin, just as it shows that is one. You can even make one on your own.

I have use a lovely sweet image from the Paper Shelter for this card. One of my olderst friends used to play the flute and do it really well. I was thinking of her the other day and as her birthday is coming up soon, I might even get this card in the mail for her. Hope I will. It has been a horrible year when it comes to sending my cards. They are just stacking up. Of couse she is coloured with my Letraset Markers. Remeber that you have to do that as well when entering our challenges.

Sorry about the bad picture. I have really big trouble getting good photos for some reason....

My designer papers are from Bildmålarna Sweden and is called the Soft Collection. Bildmålarna has by the way a new summery collection out. They are sooo lovely both the stamps and the designer papers. Love them to bits. I have kept the design fairly simple as I love the blue paper and didn't want to cover it too much. I even used the dp in it's full size. I used a die cut to frame the image and to tone down the pink a bit I used some chunky embossing powder. A few butterflies made with a MS punsh and some flowers from WOC us also used together wish some lace to finish the whole thing off. Not to forget the pins and pearls that is.

Sponsoring this challenge is A day for Daisies with a gift card worth $12. 

Well, it would be nice if you would come and join us in our challenge for this week. And don't forget to take a look at the fabby work that my teamies has made for your inspiration. A new creation is coming up here tomorrow. How busy it will be. Then it's time for a new challenge over at the Paper Shelter.

Love n hugs
Marie
