GDT 2 Anything Goes Challenge

Hi there!

It's time for a new challenge at Anything Goes Challenge and this fortnight you are going to make something that inspire you from TV.

I got my inspiration from a Swedish program called "Packad och klar" (Packed and ready) And I think that I hit the title right on the spot ;o)

I would love to take a trip around the world, it would be so great. There are so many places I want to see and experience. Well, maybe not all at the same time but one at a time.

Sitting Tilda is from the Travel Collection 2010, like the suitcases. I have used Distressink for my colouring. Found some old poststamps at home that came to use on this project.

The shape of the card I have made with a Spellbinder die.

Prima flowers, brads and stickles are also some of the things I have decorated my card with.

I think you should take a look at this store: Craft Den. I'm sure you will find some lovely things there to purchase.

I would like to thank everyone of you that visit and comment on my blog.

It really makes my day!

Okey, back to work ;o)

Have a lovely "craftingweek"!

Lots of Hugs!

WOJ Challenge

I have already worked for a whole week and soon I'm entering my second :P It's amazing how fast you are back in your routines again. I don't know if it's good or bad... ;o)
This weekend I have made a couple of cards since I was to tired last week to make any in the evenings.
One of the card I made is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge #110 Buttons & Bows
I made a twisted easelcard and decorated it with flower, bows, buttons and pearls.

Sorry to keep this post short but now it's time for me to hit the sack.
So good night and welcome back!

Yay, I'm the guest designer at the "Anything Goes Challenge" this month! *happy happy happy* I'm so proud and honored to be chosen.

This time the Challenge 47 is all about Birthday/Celebration and here's my card.
I made my very first shakercard!

The leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch and the frame is a Spellbinder dies.
Basic Grey has a lovely paper collection called Cappella which I have used on this card.

I made the "shaker" with smal glass beads.

I painted Magnolia Tilda with Distress ink and behind Tilda I masked some notes.
The balloon is decorated with Stickles.

Here's some lovely flowers...

... and ribbons with a brad.

Tickled Pink Stamp Sponsor

So have my vacation come to an end... But I've had a wonderful vacation and done alot of funny things inspite of the rain. Last week we spent some time in Germany, Hansa Park and stayed at a hotel in Lübeck. We had great fun!
This week Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring a challenge over at the Paper Sundaes Challenge. And my contribution is a card with new Lil Little Lolita Willow, another cutie from Tickled Pink.
I've made my card from a sketch and this is the result.

Now I'm off to celebrate my dad's birthday!
Have a nice weekend!

Home again...

Another mini vacation is over but I still have a week left to enjoy.
I always have big plans to craft on my vacation but somewhere along the way time just flies by. I wonder why... could it be I have to many plans and so many things I'd like to do. And that include sitting in the sun and do nothing..hi hi.
Well, I have actually been crafting but I can't show it to you yet. If you are curious you must be patient, and I hope you are ;o)

But today I will show you a card with Tilda with Hawaii flower. She is one of my favorites from Butterfly Dreams Collection. I have discovered that "the Tildas" I fall for the most are those with long wavy hair.
I've used a few butterflies, and to you who have followed me for a while, know that I just love to use them on my cards.
The words on the card is in Swedish and means something like, " The butterfly of happiness sits down on those who have time to wait". A thoughtful proverbs, isn't it.
Tilda is encircled by pearls, and coloured with destressink. It doesn't show as good but I have put a lot of Stickles "Star Dust" on Tildas butterflies and on the flower in her hair. Even around the Spellbinderframe.
And of course I had to put some flowers on the card ;o)

And with this card I would like to entering following challenges:

Magnolia Down Under, #107 BINGO Flowers, Pearls & Lace
Anything goes, #46 Bunch of Flowers

Thanks for all the sweet comments you leave me! It's a joy to read them <3

I hope the sun will shine on you!

Happy happy happy

We had a wounderful week in Gothenburg and our boys did really well!
When I came home and open my computer I saw that I have WON FIRST PRIZE in the 7Kids College Fund Challenge with my Edwin card!!! YAY!!! *doing a little happy dance*

I hope you havn't missed the new release at Tickled Pink Stamp. I have made a card with Lil Little Lolita Lilith, and I think she is so adorable!
As usual I have colored her with distressink and decorated the card with my new Magnolia dies.

Time to leave again for our next mini vacation with my family!
So until we meet again, take care!

Lil Pinkette

Hi everyone!
I'm sorry but I have to keep this post very short today.
We are going to Gothia cup today with our youngest son. It's the biggest youth cup in the world so it's going to be exciting.
I have made a "Flip flop card" with Lil Pikettes Bobbie and Pippa. It was really fun to do and not as hard as it seems.
Okey time to go :D
Have a great week and I'll see you soon!

Challenge with Edwin

I'm so enjoing my vacation!
Today me sweet friend, Lousie, came to visit me. And guess what we did... that's right, we made some crafting...lol. As always we had a great day!
For once, I'm way ahead with a project. My children's cousin is turning 10 i November and I'm already finished with his card. And I don't have to worry that he's going to take a peek, because he's not a follower of my blog ;o)
The card reveals that he plays football, doesn't it. This is the new Edwin from Magnolias latest collection, colored with distress ink.
I don't know what it is but I just love stars on boyish cards.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:

That's all for today!

Hope to see you soon!

Yesterday I started my 4 weeks vacation! It feels sooo good!
But already this weekend we went on a mini vacation, camping in a tent... Not my favorite vacation but a survived despite the rain...hmmm. Well, sometimes you have to go along with the family choice.
Awhile ago a colleague of mine asked me to do a babycard for her friend. And of course I said yes.
I haven't used any image, I just decorated the card with flowers, pearls, ribbons and butterflies. I also used a couple of Spellbinder dies and the frame is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. But I think the cutest details are the little teddybear and the pacifier.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and you are more than welcome to leave a comment. Time for me to visit the sun!

Lots of hugs!

Time for a little Tilda

Hi everyone!
It's been a while since a posted a Tilda card. So let's do ;o)
This one a made for my colleague´s daugther.
Something I have become a big fan of is the crakle paint on chipboards. I think is so much fun and it's of course nice too ;o)
Almost everything on this card is from Magnolias range; Tilda, the horse, the papers and the flowers.
And then I have used punches from Nellie Snellen and Martha Stewart.

With this card I will participate in

Magnolia-Licious Color Challenge #8

I wanna say Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog, although I have been so lousy at visiting yours :o( I promise I'll do better.

So please don't stop, I really appreciate that you do :D

Take care!
