Anything goes over at the Paper Shelter

Morning and hello! Second time today! It's time for the last challenge of the year over at the Paper Shelter. This challenge will run to 9th of January and then we start off again 10th of January. The them of our challenge this time is Anything goes. And just as always when we name our challenges that you won't be getting any comments from our team. Still you have the same chance of winning our fabby prizes.


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. Nice and easy to play along, right? You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

For my creation this week have I gone really easy as I don't have much energy at the moment. My meds are still playing games with me and now is one of our cats ill again and have a week of stay over at the Vet's place. He is getting treated for kidney problems and FOL. He is losing his teeth. The vet is checking him to see if she can fix him and so far she is doing a great job!

Will try to replace the photo tomorrow camera died on me again. 

So today have I made an invitation for a friend that I will invite for dinner during one of the Christmas "days". As I don't see well enough to colour at the moment did I use a pre coloured image and pretty much made a die cut of the image to decorate the invitation. I used the image called "For being a good boy". It's super sweet don't you think?

I made the card with some red cardstock and some digital papers from Simple Stories that I use quite often for Christmas. It's called Mistletoekisses. I just did some simple layering and fuzzy cut the image and split it into two pieces and use on each side of the text. And then on with some glitter glue from Rangers because after all it is Christmas.

I do hope that you will take the time to join us for this last challenge of the year! And a big thank you to Shirley who really have done a hard work running both the blog hop and this challenge and on top of that will start the year with her part of the team! A big thank you hug to you!

Love n hugs

Challenges for this card

Anything goes Christmas or with an option of charm

Morning and hello and welcome to my last post for the Merry Christmas challenge for 2017. I will be back with more Christmas during the New year of 2018. Sounds so far away, and yet it is only a few weeks away. Time just pass by faster and faster. Kind of scary don't you think? It's getting more important to be here and now not to miss out on life.

And then we have my card, a CAS one this week. I have used an image I think is from Make it Crafty. Not totally sure as I have had this one coloured for over a year just laying there waiting to get used. However I have coloured this little fellow in a bit of strange colours even if I love how he looks. I am please with my colouring for once. However it was hard to match him up with some dp's and I had planned for a CAS card but didn't know how, until the other day. 

I have been looking on tons of scrapbooking you tube videos lately and took inspiration from them when it came to framing the main part of the card with a back ground paper even if it's white just like the image paper. I took some paper strips from my stash and made a strip for the bottom of the card and a wavy one on top. Nice and simple and then did I stamp the "merry Christmas" (in Swedish)in the empty space in a part of t wave. Nice and easy and even the dp's match my little Santa gnome.

We always have the theme of  Anything goes for Christmas at our challenge blog TMCC. Now have we also added a theme if you like more of a challenge. This week we're going for the theme/option of use a charm. I didn't follow that one this week, normally I use plenty of charms on my creations. How strange it can be.

Well I wish you all a fabby Christmas and a happy New Year! I see you 2018!

Love n hugs
Marie

Anything goes Christmas over at WW

Morning and hello! Time for another challenge over at the Winter Wonderland. It's the last challenge of the year at the Winter Wonderland and this time we are doing the ever so popular theme of Anything goes - Christmas. After all we are a Christmas challenge blog. 

I am sorry about the photo. Except the dark weather we're having here in Sweden have I also so trouble with my eye at the moment as I have started a new medication. Hopefully will the blurr go a way in a while but for now everthing looks a bit foggy. 

The image I have used is called Chilly with birdhouse and it's from Pink Gem Designs. Sweet isn't ? I have coloured with my mix of Letraset / Winsor & Newton markers and some clear glitter pen from my stash. 

The designer papers are from Dove craft I think and I paired them up with some red cardstock and a doily from Tilda design. To keep the lace theme going did I add some fabric lace as well and folded it so it has to layers. One layer going a bit further down than the other. Looks great IRL as far as I can see. LoL I few punched out hearts is also used and that's it when it comes to decorations. 

Well, sweet and short today as it is kind of hard to see and I get a terrible headache trying. I wish you all the best and see you around.

Bloghop with celebration challenge

Morning and hello! It's time for the yearly bloghop over at the Paper Shelter. This year we are celebrating 7 years together with you all. And such amazing years it has been! Tons of fun and I have been here every single minute of these years as well as Shirley has. A big thank you to the Paper Shelter for keep bring all these fabby images our way!


This challenge has the theme of Celebrations or birthdays. So you are fine to go with either new baby, new year, birthdays, Christmas etc. Just to widen the challenge a bit. Important to know is that you DON'T have to bloghop to take part in the challenge. This challenge will last for two weeks and the more you blog hop the more chances of winning you get. Each and everyone on the team has an image to give away, and it is an image of your choice. You also have the chance of winning one image commenting on the challenge post as well as winning the gift voucher. The big one of you play with a TPS image and 3 playing with another brand.


For my card this week have I used the lovely image called Emily. I have fussy cut and coloured with Letraset / Winston & Newton markers. I printed the image fairly large and seated her in a photo frame. She is paired up with some designer papers from NitWit collections/LOTV. Some lace, a few flowers, a charm (can you spot it?) and some pearl hearts finishes this creation off. I thought I would keep this info short this week as the post is fairly long anyway...

My card is the final one on this long blog hop. Remember you don't have to hop along to play along. and if you only want to visit a few of us that's ok too. Your final stop is to go back to the challenge post.

Here is all the stops on your way:
Lilibet  
Lena 
Sabrina            
Marie (you are here)

I hope you all had a great time playing and taking part in our blog hop. We know it's a long distance run but you can always split it up and keep the fun going during a few days. Wish you all a happy December and see you all again 20th of December with a new challenge!

Love n hugs
Marie

Challenges for this card

Anything goes or Fun Folds - Christmas

Morning and hello! I am back again with a new fun challenge for the Merry Christmas Challenge blog. This time you have two options for the challenge either you go with the the not so challenging Anything goes or you go with our optional theme of "fun folds". Myself chose the easy way and goes for Anything Goes this time.


Well, there isn't as many Christmas gifts this year as we use to have. We go on the more expensive versions this year and plan a trip or two and give them to the boys. But some will there be and there is others that should have their gifts so I keep going with my gift tags. I have posted a few before and I make them all out of scraps from other projects and so is the fact with these as well.


I think these are left overs from my digital version from Simple Stories, but I don't remember what the name is. But I use this pack quite a lot and had it as main part of last years December Daily, which I yet have to finish off as Christmas Eve isn't in it yet. LoL 


For these tags have I used the scraps and I have used a Spellbinder die that cut through chip board. It's a great die and I have three sizes of these tags. This is the smallest one, perfect for the little big gifts. I have used an bunch of ribbons that is leftover from other projects and just left in my stash. There is some twin in both red and light blue. Two charms have I used for the tags as well as I feel I am drowning in them at the moment. I stopped counting when I had passed 200 on the snow flake charms. I have also made a simple decoration with some left over die cut snow flakes from Lawn Fawn. And one of the tags has also gotten some bells added to it all in silver as I prefere that before golden stuff.

I wish you all the best and do something that makes you happy!

Love n hugs
Marie

Mega Christmas Challenge

Morning and hello! This week is filled with blog hops and mega challenges and stuff like this. Today I introduce our final challenge of the year over at Passion For Promarkers /Winsor & Newton markers. Our theme is week is really easy: Add a sentiment. Shouldn't be any problems right? You have to the beginning of January to enter our challenge.


For my card have I used yet another Sassy Cherryl image. I so adore this one, as well as the rest of the sweet gang I have collected. A real classic Santa with lovely look. I went with grey once again. I really love colouring with grey and just small touches with other colours if any.

The paper pad is from Panduro, I had it for ages but not used it very much as it's a tiny bit smaller than the normal 6x6 pads. But for this one it's totally ok. I have decorated with some ribbon, a few punched snowflakes, a charm and some card cany.

And here comes some info from our challenge blog, all the fabby sponsors that we have for this challenge. So do come on and play with us! (I will add all of the links during the day.)
