My final sea side card from Bildmålarna

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend. I am preparing myself for the coming thunder storm and try to keep busy while waiting. Gosh! I wish it wouldn't interfer so badly with my life. It's a terrible phobia to have as I guess every phobia is.

A few weeks back I decided that it's enough with pain in my life so I called the worst doc I have to get my old meds back and I got them without having to visit him. Yeah! Glad I didn't have to go there at least so now I am back on an epilepsy medication. And no that illness I don't have but it take the edge of my pains and make my joints less stiff. Hopefully everything will turn for the better now, at least when my body has gotten used to them and don't make me feel so tired and sea sick all the time which in a way is appropriate for the card I show today. LoL

This is my final card for my kids' teachers. And together with them I made them each a little picnic basket and filled it with fruit caramels. In the botton of the baskets I had pictures of the boys. All the baskets was a little different just as the cards but still the same. All of it is made with Bildmålarnas designer papers and stamps. There is also a piece of Prima papers (the brown one) as I ran out of matching Bildmålarna papers in a good colour. :)

I have coloured with my Letraset markers and use some hand made flowers in Kraft card and some flowers from both I am Roses and WOC. The bottle with sand is from ROX stamps and the long blue green flower stem is from Magnolia. Pearls and some hemp string from my stash.

One of the baskets... I made those by looking on pictures on the internet. Have made them "free hand" after what I have seen and not followed any cutting files or instructions from anyone. On the baskets for Philip's teachers I have used a lifebuoy charm. It represents the lifesaver they have been when it has been hard, both with all my illnesses and the help we have needed and how wonderful they handle everything that came with the death of one of the kids in the group. I believe that all the kids in this group has an angel waching over them forever in this kid. She happened to be one of Philip's best friends the first two years of day care so it was a really hard time.

From above comes a photo as well. This is another one of the baskets. How I know? Different handles! Matching flowers and the sand bottle. The sand is from our favourite beach here in Kalmar. We have to go 25 km each way, but it's so worth it. It's the best one around! Well taken care off and just enough big as well. 

And some happy news to make this post even longer. From August I will be joining the Aud Sentiment Challenge blog as one of their new designers. I kind of applied to that team to challenge myself. I am one of those that hardly ever has a sentiment on my card, and now I have to put one on each one! How hard this will be and so much fun! Thank you so much for having me on your team. It will be a blast and I will finally get some more cards done!

Ok, this was all for today. Wish you a wonderful weekend and now time for a new bunch of pills and some new dizzyness. Wish that part will go away, soon!

Love n hugs
