Another Anything goes challenge

Morning and hello! Welcome back to my corner of the world. Today is Wednesday and it's time for the last challenge for the year over at the Paper Shelter. This time we have a theme of Anything goes, and as this is our Christmas break is all of the teamies of their duty when it comes to leave comments for you. So if you get any from us this time, it's a bonus but as always we have the same fabby prizes up for grabs. A chance to win a gift voucher worth $30 if you play with a TPS image and 3 digis of your choise if you play with another brand.

For my card this time have I used the fabby image called Happy  New Year. I have also used a mini kit from Simple stories called just the same: Happy New Year. Fun, fabby and funk with lots of bright great colours. Looks smashing.


Colouring is made with my Letraset markers. I did also colour in the back ground so it might look a bit strange on the photo but it's only the grey markers. I have made some streamers with packet string and the confetti stars are made with glitter and glossy gold card stock. Can it be more New Year's party than that?

Anyway, with this I wish you all the best for the Christmas holidays and a happy New Year if I don't manage to get back here in between Christmas and the New Year.

Love n hugs
Marie

Dies and/or punches

Morning and hello! Today am I show you the last cards for Passion for Promarkers for this year. It's time to show team 1's inspiration cards for our yearly Mega challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. Team 2 showed their cards in the beginning of the challenge. and the rest of us take you over to next year and our new challenge.



I have a bunch of wonderful friends all over the world and if I can and have the chance I make a little smaller cards for them that I can send with my letters. I needed a few more and kind of do two things at the same time I made these for our mega challenge. The images and all of the die cuts are from Lawn Fawn. This time it was so much easier to make the shaker cards. Learning by doing I guess. I was so into it that I even dreamt about making shaker cards. I think I have to make a few more of them. LoL


The designer papers are from Lili Of The Valley / Nit Wit collections. I have a whole bunch of papers left so I better start using them up to make room for new stash. It takes up a lot of space to hoard all the supplies and never use them.

Here is the sponsors once again for this challenge. Remember to have a chance of winning any of the prizes you have to colour your image with Letraset markers.

Well then my friends. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New year! In between the celerations will I and the family spend most of the time in the sports halls around Kalmar playing indoor soccer. Well, I won't be playing but my kids will. I have the food service for them and my Partner will be coaching the younger boy's team. I hope it will be a lot of fun, it normaly is and maybe we get a day or two when we can take it a little more easy and do nothing at all.

For someone special / Happy New Year

Morning and hello! This is the last challenge from the Winter Wonderland for the year. And the theme is set to "Someone special or happy new year". I made a final Christmas card just because I love making them. My all time favourite cardmaking theme.

However due to an ill cat I had no time to do any colouring this time and used one of the fantastic toppers from Maja design. The dp's are as well from Maja design. It has been a little hard focusing on the card making the last few weeks as we have not been sure if the cat would make it our not. But as it seems now it's his teeth that causes him his trouble and not the failing kidneys. 

So with a bit of luck will be able to stay around for a little longer. Had him to the vet yesterday for surgery, but she decided to hold back on that. So instead of a drunk cat I got home a cat that had been on a spa retreat eating like crazy and lots of cuddles from the vet assistants.:) We'er going back next time to see if we need the surgery and if it's possible to do it then. The infection  could spread to the kidneys if we're unlucky so, that will only be done if we really need too. Keep your paws crossed!


The card is fairly simple and just tons of layer to keep some interest going in the card. Some wood weeders stars from Studio Calico, enamel dots make with the little ranger bottle. Metalic snowflakes from PY hobby and the rose lace from Wild orchid crafts I think. I did use some ice stickle on it and I love how that turened out. 

I have added some letter stickers to the card after I took the photo but the photos turned out even more dull than this so, this is what you get to see. The card is for my cousin and his girl friend and her mum. They have the most smashing cat hotel. I kind of wish I was a cat and could stay there for a week or two. 

Well, thers is some time before my kids come back home from friends so I think I am going to wrap a few of the gifts that I have hidden around the house before they find them. 

A merry Christmas to you all!

Love n hugs

Anything goes over at TTCRD

Morning and hello! I am back again! A few weeks ago was I lucky enough to get picked as a winner over at TTCRD and there was a opportunity to guest design for the challenge and the day has come. 😊 Today I am sharing my card using designer papers from DĂ©cosse's Dynamite DoodlesI have used designer papers from Familiar Refrain and Holiday Hoopla.

DĂ©cosse's Dynamite Doodles is sponsoring this challenge over at TTCRD so a big thank you for letting me use the lovely dp's as well for my card.



I have matched the lovely dp's with a Tilda image from Magnolia's Winter kit and as it is Lucia here in Sweden today I thought it was a perfect match with music note papers and everything. Couldn't be a better mix. I have coloured with distress inks this time and some perfect pearls mixed into it as well. 

I would like to thank the lovely crafters of TTCRD for letting me guest design for them and I hope that you will join the challenge. It's nice and easy as it is always Anything goes theme on this challenge. 

I wish you all the best and hope to see you all soon again. Have a lovely St Lucia day for you who celebrates it. 

Love n hugs
Marie

A little Christmas card again

Morning and hello! I am having a creative time at the moment. Here is another Christmas card that I started when Pyssloteket had their CC. I never finished it by then as I got really sick, but on the other hand I have a new card I can show you here in my blog.

I have used a bunch of left overs for this card. I have a middle blue paper with silver in both the blue colour and some silver foil pattern in the dp. It's from a really old paper collection that I don't remember from where I have got it. But it's nice and Christmassy or wintery is more the truth.


I have made a few bulbs with diecuts from my stash. I don't remember the brand for now. I have used some glitter cardstock and white to match the details on the card. The stamps are from YouDo and I stamped it in blue memento ink if I remember everything right. To hang the bulbs have I used some silver string as well to follow throw with the theme of the card.

Time to work on my photo albums for a while and then the weekend is here again. So nice, it will be alot of indoor soccer and a little birthday celebrations over at my brothers on Saturday.

Take care and do something that makes you happy today!

Love n hugs
Marie

Birthday bloghop over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! It's now 6 years since The Paper Shelter challenges was born and now are we celebrating our birthday once again with a bloghop. You don't have to visit us all during the same day, but each comment you leave on the challenge blog and the teamies's blogs are a chance to win a digi from the Paper Shelter. (One chance / blog). 

On top of that do you still have the chance to win the normal gift voucher as our challenge goes on as normal, only that it's two weeks long. So come on an leave some love around all the TPS teamies blogs. I for sure am very grateful to have been a part of this since the beginning. A true blessing! 

If you're coming from Vannessa's lovely blog you're on the right track and besides that, you have come to an end. Next stop is our challenge blog.

Here is the rest of the stops on the way in case you have missed out of someone.

                
For my celebration card have I used The bookworm fairy. I found her suitable for this celebrations as for me it is a party to read. I love it even more than crafting, I know can you love something more than that but in my case it's the truth. 


I have coloured this little cutie with my Letraset markers, a glitter pen in silver and some glossy accent for her glasses. 


The card is an easel card and I had great fun decorating with a whole flower garden this time. I have used a charm on my card, a lace bow and some metal corner as well. I have left the oval blanc for now as I am not sure who will get the card yet. I wanted to have a chance to add a longer name and a number if needed. You know the drill...


I do hope you have enjoyed our fabby bloghop and have given the gals some well deserved love. Remember that it's you who play along with our challenges that makes it all happen. I for sure can't wait to see your amazing creations. And remember that you don't have to take part in the blog hop to play along in our challenge with the theme of birthday celebration.

Love n hugs

Mega Christmas Challenge

Morning and hello! It's that time of the year again when we hold our yearly Mega Challenge. This week will Team 2 showing their fabby cards, and the 20th of December will team one's cards be shown. Something to look forward to isn't it? In the meantime you can always make a card or two for our easy peasy challenge. Use your dies and punches!

Here is what you will find out over at Passion for Promarkers:

Good morning dear crafters, we hope you all had a fantastic week last week. The DT really enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing you fabulous creations for last week’s “eat, drink & be merry” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the stamp set (must be in stock) courtesy of Clearly Besotted stamps will be and also to see who Lisa has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

This week we are launching our very special “Mega Christmas challenge” which runs for a whole month and ends on 3rd January 2017!  I’m sure you’ll agree that both design teams have worked extremely hard once again this year and they deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards.  However to make up for the lack of challenges we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs!

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “use your dies/punches”.  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as you follow the theme.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.  Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation i.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!
