Fancy

Morning and hello! Welcome to another emty from card post from me this week. :( I couldn't do my card for The Paper Shelter either. It's just like yesterday when nothing is working for me. That means I try to rest my joints for a while since it might help them recover a bit.

My meds are making me feel tummy sick, and without them too much pain. Trying to figure out how to balance it all, but it's hard thing to get working.

Ok, now the theme over The Paper Shelter this week is Fancy - add lots of details. Make a pretty card/creation and decorate it pretty. Then add your creation to our challenge. You can enter up to three times and two of the cards don't even have to have a TPS image on them. Only the third one. Nice and easy!

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. 

Ok then, now lets go play over at the Paper Shelter. I hope that you will play along with us. 

Love n hugs

You just make a brilliant card and show us what's your favourite stamp, colouring medium, decoration etc is. Nice and easy right?

Weather is changing, jippi for many, bad news for me. It's around 8 C outside today and windy. I would love it to be -8 and some snow please. Well feel better than I am and I see you soon again.

Pastel colours

Hello and good morning! Hope your week have been better than mine. Tons of headache again and a really low dip. It's time for a medical clean up. No pills for the coming week and face the pain instead. Hopefully less pain in the head and stomach then.

We have a new challenge up today at the Winter wonderland. The theme is set to pastel colours and for a few more weeks you don't have to make Christmas cards when you join our challenges. So any card with pastel colours will be fine.

 We are sponsored by Di's Digital Stamps this week and they are offering the lucky winner a $12 gift voucher to use in their store.


My image is from Magnolias Winter kit. I don't have the name of the image but it was popular before Christmas. I didn't get around to play with it by then. However a few weeks ago, I felt like playing with my distress markers which I rarely use. So I have coloured up a few of the winter motives from the kit and here is one of the results. I find it really hard to colour hair with distress ink, it just get messed up. More practise needed. LoL


The image is paired up with designer papers from Maja design. They are from two different pads but they have no front anymore so I can't say which ones it is. The flowers are from WOC, the snowflakes are from ROX stamps. Punch used for the edge is from Martha Stewart. Since little Miss Tilda is holding on to a little Frosty I decided to make a snow lantern as well from some "snow balls" I found in my stash. The sentiment stamp is from Gummiapan. Pearls from Bunny Zoe and pearl swirls are from bought from Joanna Sheen.

I hope you will come and play with us over at the Winter Wonderland and remember it doesn't have to be a Christmas card at this point. You only need to use pastel colours.

I will also take the chance to thank the ones of you who is still following me here on my little blog. I don't have the energy to post as much as I used to due to feeling like I do at the moment. But it all have to turn some day. Have been saying that for long now, but I still belive that it will. 

Love n hugs

Rough it up

Morning and hello! Welcome back to my corner of the world second time this week. My cold is getting worse and I have gotten feveer so I have not been able to finish my card yet. But it's on the way. I thought I could at least start to tell you about the challenge we're having this week over at the Paper Shelter. 

Our theme is set to "Rough it up" and that would mean that the edges of the CS/dps are a bit uneven, scratched, torn etc. But it has nothing to do with distress ink, just the paper edges ok...


http://www.thepapershelter.com/

As always we have a gift voucher worth $30 up for grabs if you play with any TPS product. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three (3) digis of your choice. There is tons of fabby images to choose between and you are sure to find something that will suit you.



So sorry took a bit longer than I thought to get this up. Ending up spending the whole day in bed yesterday with fever. But here it is. My Rough it up card. I have reinforced the edges with some vintage photo distress ink, just like I always do, but I have also used the edges of a pair of sissors to edge the edges how to speak. The rich pink designer papers are from Prima and so is the light one.  A few flowers, some lace and a couple of butterflies made with a die from Joy Crafts I think. Pearls from my stash. 

Take care and be safe!

Love n hugs

Flower Power

Morning and hello! Welcome back to my little corner of the world. The week start off with a nice and lovely cold. This time I hope it will really break out and get as worse as it can and not a little half cold. After that can it go away forever.

Super cold here today again. Had -15C degrees tonigth. It have quite cold for more than a week now and it's great. I do feel a bit better in my joints so now is the hard thing not to over do anything to make it heal for real. I just miss the snow.

The new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is mine and have choosen the the theme of "Flower Power". That just means that I want to see lots of flowers on your creation. Nice and easy I hope.


I made this card a while back when I finished my last day over at my work training so it its a while back now. I have used designer papers from Maja Design, the image is from Stempelglade. It looks a bit more yellow here than it is in real life. I have used quite a few flowers from WOC, pearls from Bunny Zoe and I think the lace is from them as well. A butterfly punch from MS, and the rose lace/ribbon is also from WOC. There is many layers on this creation some are just cut, and some are made with Spellbinder dies.



Sponsoring this challenge is Letraset and MR Design. From Letraset is a pack of neonmarkers up and a gift voucher from Michele R Design worth £10.

I do hope you all  will come and join us for this challenge. Don't forget that you have to use Letraset products to be able to join in with our challenges.

Love n hugs
Marie
