Happy Birthday Girl Card & finally some shopping!

One of Karolines girlfriends in the kindergarden turned 5 years old this past weekend. And I just had to make a girly card with this lovely image from Ladybugs & friends. This stamp is one of my favorites :D
I made this card after a sketch from Magnolia Down Under, in the meening of atticipate in that challenge, but suddenly I choosed to use another image, and then I cant enter it LOL, but isn't the sketch just so fine? check it out here
I've used; I can't remember the papers I used here though, but I think it is Bobunny :) Other things I used is; corner from kort&godt, roses from I am roses, leafes from Prima (i think) heart pearl and pearls from Kort&godt, lace from kort&godt, and a waved ribbon I got in a candy one time :) the text stamp is from Kretiv hobby and the image are from Ladybug & Friends and painted with my new distress ink refillers from Rangers :)

Here are some photo details for you :)

Yes I know!
I said a very long time back ago, that I was not to shop anything more stasj or paper this year...
but I suddenly found out that I was in a very big need of kraft carton! So after my drivings lessen today, I found myself standing in Jorunns Hobbyhjørne!!
And hey! who in its right mind does go out of a scrapping store without anything else but what she is supose to!! heee? -lol-
So inside by bag all these things also came with me home;

And at at bookstore in Arendal, I found these to small paper pad books with Basic Grey papers! So they just kind of jumped into my bag aswell -lol-

But now!
I deffinitive are having a shopping stop!!

birthday party

It has bin quiet here at my blog for a long time. Just some post with some of my DT works now and then.
My two kids has the varicella (had to look up the word though, thought it was actually called something with chicken poks or something hi hi, oh well..) anyway: they have bin sick all week long, but it is my oldest who got it bad. lots of, lots of spots all over her body poor thing, itching madly all the time but specially at night... so it has bin a hard week. But I shouldn't complane actually... more things worse than varicella out there!!
I am too, struggleing with something, I just don't know what it might be. I am just totaly out of strengh, and my body aches all over, specially after sitting for a while. specially at my back I have huge pain... If it continues I have to contact a doctor... I think... oh well... enough of complaning for this time, just had to say a kind of why there has not bin any other post here at my blog:D

But now I at least have a card I made for the new challenge we have over at Kort O Mania!!
The task this time is that you are to make a card or a creations of some sort with 5 stamps on the front of the project! It can be motivs, text, swirls etc... as long as we can se them all! :D
when I made my card, I had a lot of fun masking together 4 stamps of WoJ and a text stamp!
It is a very clean & simpel card from me this time, I am not to pleased with it, but it was what i manage to come up with this time...
here it is;

And then I have a card to show you, that I made when I attend at my ''scrapping club'' one time some weeks ago. where I made a little different welcome to the world card for one of the girls of our ''scrapping club'', that gave birht to a son little over a month ago now :D
the motive I am not sure where is from, but I got it from my friend Nicole at my ''scrapping club'' :D A very colorful card and this too I was not to pleased with how it turned out, but it was OK I think;

A LayOut!!

oh my gosh that's bin a while right?
I thought so too, and I had to dig deep after my pictures and when I found them, I put it into my mind; that - I am to make a layout for challenge # 16 over at Scrappekammeret!
And so I did :D
And for the challenge # 16 we have a picture for you to get inspired by, and the colors are so great :D check it out here!

I did a bit of an artfull layout infact, and I was happy with how it turned out :D
Fun and happy layout, showing off my oldest when she was so proud of her high pony-tale :D And in the same time captured all off her funny faces :D
And to get the pictures in foucus, I made the whole thing without any papers, just drew on it and colored with pencils :D

At Scrappekammeret we also have a christmas countdown!
Yes we do! :D
And everyday until christmaseve, you will find something related to christmas, and there is also great inspiration to find, by us in the DT. But also from others :D Great fun! :D
And I did make a christmas card with some great papers and stash that we got from our sponsors of that series. And here is the card I came up with;

Hope you liked what I made :D

Black Vintage

I had so much fun making this card!
It did take me some hours though, because I have used so much paint (Gesso) that had to dry before I could work further on it. And the black flowers you see 'under there', those I have cut out by hand from a paper line called My Minds Eye /Lush, from Love2scrap.
Love2scrap are this month sponsor over at Vintage Challenges, and the DT has bin given some papers and brads to play with. And those papers and brads I have used here, is what I recived.
It was a huge challenge for me to come up with something vintage using only black, And I Think I manage to make it vintage? :D But wow I had so fun! :D
And the new challenge over at Vintage Challenge is FUN, you are to play with paint/Gesso, other than that, you can do and make whatever you like!
Hope to see you taking part and playing along with us! :D
Have Fun!

Here is my card, an easel-card this time;
used; papers and brads from MyMindsEye(fromLove2Scrap), flowers from I Am Roses, roses from Kort & Godt, old book pages, 2 different laces, the image is from Mangolia and are painted with only blackshoot & rose(...)
