Christmas in white and gold

Just 3 months to go and lots of cards to make.
Today it was time for another christmascard.
I was visiting TOMIC and got really inspired by their picture.
I tried to stamp in a light colour and coloured it with promarkers.
Not really sure that I like it. I coloured her eyes black but then they
were mush to dark. A little white dot calmed it down a little.

The papers I´ve used is from Magnolia and some small pieces that I don´t know where they´re from. Flowers are from magnolia as well. The ribbon with the stars I got at a local supermarket. I like it a lot! The dies are from Nellie Snellen.

I´m entering tis in theese challenges:

Wild Orcid challenge, make it sparkle with stars
Paper sundaes, anything goes

Summer picnicbasket

Here in Sweden we really miss summer. It´s all wet and rainy.
In the middle of this week we´re going to have nice, warm weather again!
About 20 degrees celcius.
But I think that the picnicseason is over for this year.
I made this after seeing it in a Magnolia magazine.
Took a while to fold and glue it together.

The papers, fork, spoon and knife, and ribbons are from panduro.
The dies are from Nellie Snellen, the bordercutter from fiskars, the stamps and flowers from Magnolia.

I coulored my images with promarkers.

All edges are distressed with walnut stain.

I´m entering this in the following challenges:

Took my cards to work

Another week soon to an end and I´m looking forward to crafting a lot!
I took my hatbox and filled it up with some goodies and took it with me to my new school.

Mabye someone could find it a bit cute.

 First day I sold 15 and I got myself 7 orders for special cards.

This one I made for Andrea. She´s going to a wedding and I´ve been wanting to make a "shakecard". I put pearls instead of rice in the window. Hope she´ll like it.

Our PE teacher is going to a cristening. I just had to go to the Magnoliastore and have myself a little babystamp...and a Magnolia tag-die.

Hope you´ll have a nice weekend!

"Smelly cat" a favorite Friends song

This week at Charisma cards it´s all about getting inspired by a song.
Friends, the fantastic show on tv is a favorite in this house.
Pheobe is so cute playing (badly) on her guitar.
"Smelly cat, smelly cat
what are they feeding you"

This fold I just learned last week and I love it.
When you get a card you love you really want to show it of.

Please join us at Charisma cardz in this funny challenge.

Crafting for love, not life

This has been a hard decission but I´m stepping down from beeing Dt at creative card crew and One stop challenges. I never in my life thought that I would be a dt member at all when I applied. Instead I got all 3. I´m a hard beliver that what you do you shuld do your very best. I dont really feel I can when I´m in all three. I´ve got a new job, a super job as theacher in a montessorischool near my home. It´s really fun but it takes a lot of time beeing a newbe. I hope you´ll keep visiting me even if I haven´t made many posts theese last couple of weeks. Hope to post something later today.
A friend of mine bought this card for her brothers wedding last week.
I´ve only made 2 weddingcards and now I don´t have any left in my "little box".
Perhaps that´s my mission for today.
