Add some sparkle and bling

Good afternoon! So sorry that I am late with my Winter Wonderland post today. The youngest have been sick all week and that means strange sleeping habits and getting nothing done because even if the kids are sick you have to keep up with the school work. Can't end up behind if you listen to the schools around here.

I will have to retake these photos tomorrow as my camera keeps dieing on me. Probably need a new battery as it goes low straight away and now it's totally dark and it's only 16:35. On the bright side my window cleaner have been here today and I have gotten all windows clean and all around the windows are also clean. Now time for advent stars and candelights in the windows. I have a few hours before the kids and Mats gets back home as it's birthday party for the oldest and three of his friends today. How nice isn't that? They are playing laser game for a few hours and having pizza.

For my creation this week have I managed to make a few time gift tags for the gifts I am making for the school teachers this year. I will try to get a picture of it all tomorrow when there is some day light again. For now you have to settle with this

Three different tags filled with glitter and bling. In this case stickles colour: golden rod and some old gem stones from Anitas in red and white for the gingerbread tags. Santa has red for the berries as well as the the candle. The candle stamp is from Bildmålarna, the gingerbreads are from Gummiapan and the little gnoom is a snag 'em stamp from ages back. I have coloured with my pencils this week.

This week we're sponsored by Crafty Sentiments who are offering the winner three digis.

Well, short and sweet today. I am so tired and it would be good to get some curtains up in the windows before the kids and Mats gets back for the laser game again. Or at least get the flowers back in the windows.

Love n hugs

Christmas is coming

Morning and hello! Time for a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. Can you believe that we are already in the end of November? WoW! The time really flies by quickly. I need a break of some sort. This week it's time to put up the advent stars in the windows, and the Advent candlesticks that I love so much. The window cleaner will also arrive on Friday and I can't wait for it all. My favourite time of the year.

Well then and as it's soon Christmas I have a Christmas card to show off today. Well the theme is set to "Christmas is coming" so it would be really strange if I didn't have a Christmas card wouldn't it?

I have used a part of a TPS image called Christmas Shopping. I think her face is really lovely so I wanted it to show. Unfortunately did I manage to give her a sun burn but it kind of drowns in the colours I have picked for the dp's. I think they are from Dove craft. The metal snowflake and sentiment is from ROX stamp. I have used a few gemstones as berries and some glitter glue for her ear ring. A simple design and I love the combo of red and craft. The gold details make it nice and sparkling.

Sponsoring our challenge today is Letraset. Prize up for grabs is a set of 2013's limited edition markers from fall/winter. How nice isn't that?

Well my friends. I leave you here so that you can start creating. Don't forget to use Letraset products to be able to join our challenge.

Brr! It's cold outside

Morning and hello! A very grey and rainy day here in Sweden at least for now. I keep warm in the house with a little fire and some cats that are up to some cuddling. It's Wednesday and we have a new fun challenge up for you over at The Paper Shelter. This weeks theme is a colour theme and that means we want to see creations that is blue white and silver/grey. You're allowed to use hair and skin but that's it.

I have use the image called Heavenly Christmas Carol and I find the image really sweet. A darling face to this image. She's coloured with my Letraset Markers and a silver gel pen. Snow details are made with flower soft and some thick embossing power. Snowflakes are make in silver paper with MS punch. Some corrugated card bord, lace and some more silver paper for added details. A few card candies to break up all the silver on the snow flakes. Two kind of ribbon/lace is also used. The designer papers are from 2009 and the brand is Bo Bunny. Kind of have been saving these for a long time. Love them to bits.

As always there is a gift voucher worth $30 up if you play with a TPS image. We had a lucky winner this week winning it. Next time it might be you! Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice.

Sweet and short today. Splitting headache. Crashed into a book shelf a few weeks ago and it feels like something have been cracked, like my nose or so. Oh well, it will heal but it hurts. LoL

Take care!

Love n hugs

Christmas Candy

Morning and hello! Second time posting this week and the second week being home all day long. Well, let's say it's a good thing that I have to kids that have to get away to school every day so that I get up and get away at least twice per day. Otherwise I would spend all day long infront of the fireplace crocheting and making cards.

My dear cat Tage is still missing and his brother have not been himself since that so last Saturday we went to a cat shelter and bought two more cats. They can never replace Tage but we get a chance of giving two lovely cats a new chance. We went prepared for two kittens. The always sell them in pair, but when we left a few hours later we had an 11 year kidney sick male called Gustaf with us and a 3 year old female called Lisa. She could be our old cat Hasses twin. They look exactly the same. With three cats we still have room for Tage if he should return to us. Gosh! I miss that pretty blue face! :(

Well the reason to why you are here. My card for the Winter Wonderland challenges. This weeks theme is Christmas Candy. So anything related to that sweet stuff is what we want to see this time. Nice and easy I hope.

I have used an TPS image called An amusing Christmas sign. It's from last years Christmas images from the Paper Shelter. It was actually a lot more fun to colour than I thought and I am glad to have finally got it coloured up. I have done that with my Letraset markers and a gelly pen with siver glitter. Designer papers comes from DCWV and is from way back when I started making cards. I bought it for two papers and I still have not used those particular ones. How strange things become some times. :) For decorations have I used some enamel dots, a doily and a few snowflake brads. The sentiment is a stamp from Gummiapan that says "Merry Christmas".

Sponsoring this challenge is Crafty Ribbons. The prize is a voucher worth £10 to spend in the store. How great isn't that?

Well then, I hope to see you play along with us for this challenge as well. Can't wait to see what you will create. I will go done and start a fire once again and crochet a few more of my Christmas owls.

Love n hugs

Autumn / fall

Morning and hello! Welcome back to my little blogging corner of the world. Hope you have a great autumn/fall so far. I enjoy every bit of it and can't wait until I can bring out the first Christmas decorations. LoL I know. A tiny bit early, but soon, sooon I can prepare for my favourite time of the year. :) But first it's time to enjoy the time of fall.

We have a lot of birthdays coming up during the fall in my family, both in the close family but also the friends of my boys are autumn boys. For this challenge I have used an LOTV image. I love the old fashion look of those stamps. Really sweet and there is a whole bunch of fabby boy's images in the collection. As the card is made for the Passion for Promarkers I have used Letraset products to colour my image.

I have used the Bo Bunny paper pad fall forever or something like that. I have used it earlier this fall, quite a few times. I love the rich colours in this pad.

I have used a bunch of Magnlia dies on the card to decorate it. There is some leaves in fall colours, some acorns, a road sign, and some ear of corn. I have used up some of my letter stickers once again. The smaller ones are from Panduro the green ones I have no clue from where they are. But I love both the colour and the shape of them.

Sassy Studio Designs
Sponsoring this challenge is Sassy Studio Designs. One lucky winner will recieve 4 images.

Ok, it's time to get busy and do something to keep busy. I wish you a wonderful day!

Layer on Layer

Morning and hello! Wednesday and my oldest kid's birthday. 9 years since life changed forever. A lovely fall day here in Kalmar. As it's mid week it's time for a new challenge over at the Paper Shelter and this week our theme is "Layer on Layer". That means we want to see at least four layers of paper on your creation.

This time have I used a super fun image and it's also one of the oldest images from the Paper Shelter. It's called Funny Giraffes. I thought it was perfect as birthday card for a 7 year old boy. I have coloured with my Letraset markers. The designer papers are a mix from different brands. All in happy colours. The card stock is from Panduro.

As the card is for a boy and I have a hard time getting things done it's fairly simple but I have many layers at least. I have used some enamel arrows in yellow, a black "7" glitter thinker and a dynamo label saying "Congrats" in Swedish.

As always we have a gift voucher worth $30 up for grabs if you play with any TPS product (either image or dp's). Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three (3) digis of your choice. There is tons of fantastic images to choose from and I am sure you will find something that suits you. All the images comes with a backing paper that you can use with your new digi or with any other image. 

Love n hugs
