Pick and mix

Hello and good morning! Friday at last and I can't wait to get some rest. Had to go a take an injection in my shoulder the other day and it has been hurting even more afterwards, but this morning it finally feels lots better.

Well this is my final post for this week and I end it with yet another card made with a Paper Shelter image. This one is also from this year's collection of Christmas and winter images. And it's totally adorable. It's called Holy Night. It took me a while to colour this one but I got there in the end. But so worth it. I have just like earlier this week used the Back to Basic Modern paper pack from Dovecraft for my card. I am so in love with these papers and the wonderful colour combo. A little softer than the red ones and love that at the moment. The colour green is so peaceful and spread calmness.

So this card is made for our new challenge over at Winter Wonderland and our theme is to pick three embellishments from our given list. As always I had a hard time sticking to just three of them, but you only have to use three ok.

The list of choices is these
pearls / gemstones
lace
ribbon
snowflakes
flowers
brads
pins

Well, as I love everything that has to do with winter and christmas cards I have quite a bit of embellishments match up this theme. I kind of had to stop myself from adding more to the already overloaded mix. My pick from the list is the following: pearls (got those from my friend Annelie), lace (got this lovely one from my friend and teamie Gail), ribbon, flowers and snowflakes. I also added some golden rod stickles and some flowersprays to the mix.

Sorry it's a bit blurry, I'll get it fixed during the day

Ok, time for a final day in school before the weekend starts. We're doing tons of parties this week. Both boys are off to Halloween parties (which I so don't like but at the same time I don't want them to be left out, at least only one is trick or treating). Then we have Willy's 8 year old party for relatives, but as everyone couldn't make in on Saturday, we're doing the same thing on Sunday... How much fun it will be, and so much rest... not! LoL

The Paper Shelter
 Sponsoring us this challenge is "my" beloved Paper Shelter and the winner is up for a wonderful gift vocher worth $20. Really nice isn't it?

I will also light a candle or two and remember the loved one we lost. One of my oldest sports heros passed away this Wednesday, and just thinking of it makes me cry. I will forever cherrish the memories of Klas Ingesson, one of the hardest working soccer player in the world who sadly lost his battle against cancer only 46 years old. But more than that he was a true human that stood up for what he believed and spread love around him. RIP Mr Ingesson!

Take care!

Love n hugs
Marie

I forgot to leave you a comment on this card last week. I was having a bad week with my 12 year old beagle named Bailey going to heaven. He was my best friend and it has been very hard to live without him. This card of yours...well, that deer looks real. Seriously, it's absolutely wonderful and I adore the color green you've used, too. This is so pretty and soft looking. I really like it a lot! XXOO, Gail P.S. I have found a new baby boy beagle who is only 7 weeks old and get him on Saturday so that should help cheer our house up. ;)

Men vilket ljuvligt kort, så gulligt motiv & fina blomsterhörn!
Fullt upp hos dig som vanligt på skaparfronten ser jag, härligt :)
Jag har allt varit inne här lite då & då men tror det var länge sen jag skrev nåt, måste försöka skärpa till mig lite..
Hoppas allt är bra med dig - o att axeln har hållit sig lugn!
Ha en fin helg!
