Blue skies - shades of blue

Hi and hello! Hope you had a better start to the week than I had. How many hours does it take to load a photo with my internet? Answer: Forever! I don't know how many hours I have been struggling to get this post going, and then all of the sudden it works, even if it's really slow. Someone = "hubby" is going to move back the internet connection to where it should be and that soon. Still I can't nag as he is helping me to get the craft room ready so I should be nice shouldn't I? Well, after having messed and remade the photo editing it seems to be working a little better. Well, read smaller file. LoL

Anyway, better get on with it before it decides to shut down again. It's a new challenge up over at Passion for Promarkers and this week we're enjoying the theme of "Blue skies". That means we want to see shades of blue on your card. It should be your main colour.

Our sponsor this week is Little Claire Designs and the prize is this cute set of stamps.

And my card... I have once again used the NitWit/LOTV paper pads Up up and away and Pastel dreams. Well, at least I think I have used them both. :) The image is my favourite Tilda from Magnolia and her name is also gone in my foggy brain. Let's just agree that she is really cute, ok? She's coloured with my Letraset Markers which you also have to use for your creation, well you don't have to use my markers. You can use your own but it has to say Letraset on them. 

I have used some pearls, flowers, a few die cut clouds to reinforce the sky theme and then a cute little charm that says "made with love". A punched border is also on the card and the punch is from Martha Stewart. 

Well folks, that's it. I hope this will work and I will find a way to get this crappy internet to work for me and not against me. Maybe I won't spend as much time as I thought I would by the soccer field. I might be spending it here, trying to figure this internet connection instead. LoL 

Love n hugs

Hi and welcome to my blog. Unfortunatly I don't have a card to show you today as I have spent a lot of time finishing off our DT-call over at the Paper Shelter. However the rest of the gals has done a brilliant job to give you the inspiration you need for this challenge with the theme of 


Flowers and lots of them. Nice and easy!

Spring is soon here and here at the Paper Shelter you find a whole bunch of wonderful spring images.

If I feel the energy coming back to my I will add a card on my blog later, but I am really tired at the moment and with a new "teamie" to take care of at my work practise place I feel as drained as when I started. 

I see you soon again, and do come and play with us over at the Paper Shelter.

Warm Winter Wishes

Hello! New challenge up over at Winter Wonderland. Theme of the week. Warm Winter Wishes. An image wearing warm clothes is what we are looking for this week. Nice and easy we hope.

I so had another image in mind for this challenge, one of my beloved TPS images but I am still having trouble with my PC and the external harddrive and all that comes along when you temporarily move your stuff and don't think it will take so long... There is also still the trouble with my image uploading. Still walking in old chewing gum. :(

Instead of the TPS image I found this little darling from Joanna Sheen. A cute little rabbit that I wanted to have so badly after giving one to a friend. Then it just ended up in my Christmas box to be found as a little treasure the other day. :) Isn't he cute in his oversized sweater? Just the way I like them, well maybe without the Christmas motive then. :) The little mistletoe stamp are also from the same stamp set. The sentiment "God Jul" is from Bildmålarna's collection.

I love my CAS cards at the moment and they save me some time when I can't find what I need for my cards. At the moment is my charger for the camera gone. Need to find that really soon as it's low on battery. I have some gemstones from Anitas. Bought those ages ago when I just had started crafting and they last a lifetime. And look so good as berries here. A piece of twine to ground the little rabbit and sentiment and I was done. 

Sorry once again to my teamies over at Winter Wonderland for being late again with my card. I will get my act together, at least as soon as I have my new room ready. Before that I will probably chase my tail for a bit longer. Tomorrow will we try to finish the roof in the room. In between both my boys soccer trainings. It's a tournament on next weekend for both of them. Woohoo! Indoor and that feels so good when it's raining outside right now and tomorrow there will probably be some snow again. Too bad that my oldest have practise outside late afternoon tomorrow. How fun! ;)

Sponsoring us this week is the lovely

Sorry, I don't know what the prize is.

Well, I bet I see you over at Winter Wonderland and that you will come and join us for this weeks challenge. Now will I go and light the fire so we won't freeze to death in the basement. And a little PS: my partner told me that I had been talking in my sleep last night. Of all the things in the world I have been talking about crochet needles! Apparently I love them. I have had a few crocheting ideas in my head for a while so it's probably not that strange but fun. So maybe I should go down and use one in my collection while I wait for the fire to start up. LoL

Two word sentiment

Morning and hello! What a week I had so far, chasing my tail every single minute but now it soon weekend and I really need that.

I am here to share with you a card made for our second week of the challenge "two word sentiment" over at Aud sentiments. This is yet another birthday card I've made and well. I am not sure about this one. I love the colours and the dps and everything but... Maybe because I had to rush the card fairly much. It has been so much going on here lately and my craft room is still not ready. I have stuff in the whole living room and the TV-room and really no place to sit down to do my creations and then it gets hard to motivate myself. I hope that we will finish the roof later on this week and then in with the new floor so that I can get my stuff into the room again in some kind of order. Can't wait for that but it's going slow, really slow. So much to do, such short days! LoL

The image is called Cupcake Honey and is found over at Scrapper's delight. She's coloured with my Letraset Markers and then paired up with my NitWit/LOTV dp's. They are so lovely and colourful. And easy to find as most of my dp's are stashed away. Didn't thought it would take so long to finish my room. LoL As decorations have I used a doily and some "e-dots" that I got from my blogging buddy Annelie. A border punch from somewhere is used to cut one of the panels with. Letter stickers from Panduro to say "Happy Birthday Elin" in Swedish.

Well, I think this is all for today. I am really tired and it's quite painful in my back at the moment, end of the week you know. I see you tomorrow again with a new creation for the Winter Wonderland.

Love n hugs
