Twilight eyecandy

Yes.. I know I´m to old.
But it´s nice to find something to rest my eyes at ;)
This is not my usual type of image.
I found this on google search looking for a black and white image of a wolf.
I have no idea who made this but I printed it and coloured it with my Pro markers.
I hope that person likes the result as mush as I do.

I have a doughter who is absolute fanatic about these boys.
The films are on day and night.
I love them as well so I guess I´m also a big fan.
I´m entering this in the following challenges:
For me it was simple.
B for BOYS, blooms, bow, black, brown hair and some bling!

Do I have to choose?
Bite or imprint?
Bite me any day Edward :)

2 projects this saturaday morning

Today Oliver woke me up at 06.00.
Yes. I know it´s saturday!
My hubby made coffe and scones for breakfast, mmmmmmm.
So, I shouldn´t complain.
This is what I made today.

I found this little cutie om our computer.
Don´t know were she´s from.
Sometimes my dougther is looking for images that she likes for different projects for school. I love this one!
I coloured her with Pro markers.

I decided to make an envelope to decorate this time.
I like the lilac, the blue and white together.

I´m entering this in Colour create´s challenge this week.
Lilac blue and white

The other project I started last night is a tag for Just Magnolia´s challenge.
 This little Tilda is one of the first I bought.
This time I coloured her with distress inks.

I used 3 of Magnolias patterned papers over a white tag from a Sizzix die.
Love the pastel colours!
These big pink flowers I got from Py hobby yesterday.
Aren´t they lovely!
The bling at her feet says "Lycka", means happiness.

I added som feathers again...
Different colour roses are allways nice.

Now I´m off to Gothenburg shopping!
We are going to make a new bathroom upstairs.
I´m sooo looking forward to this.

Have a nice saturdag!

She just brings a smile to my face this little cutie from Saturated canary!
I can´t print on my favorit paper so it was har to use my distress inks today.
But I think the result turned out ok anyway.

This card is all about flower power, colours, butterflies and everything happy.
I really like these easelcards.
So easy to make!

I made i little tag with lots of different ribbons in it.
The flowers I got from the Magnolia store.
I need the set in orange too!
The dies are from Nellie snellen.

I used a big circular die to make this one and cut it with my scalpel to get this peace sign.
I made it glitter with some stickles and decorated with some extra flowers.

When I fold it together it looks like this.
I really like how the ribbons stick out.

This was my first time using this SC picture but sertenly not the last.
I´m entering this in the following challenges.

A big tag

Today I made a cute tag inspired by nature.
Can´t wait for it to be green outside.
Tired of winter and snow.
The challenge at Pysselmyran this week is to make a flower with a ribbon.

I´ve used "appleblossom" a stamp from Pysselmyran and you can find it here.
Perfect for all of you spring cards.
There are many different types and they can be combined beautifully.

I´ve seen so many beautiful feathers in the stores and 
the are so beautiful to decorate with.
It was a long time since I used embossingpowder.
Love the golden effect.

This is my flower!
Come and play at Pysselmyran this week.

Pearls and lace challenge.

torsdag 16 februari 2012


I  was talking to a friend today and she was so inspired to make some cards today.
I wasn´t at all really.
Gave it a go while Oliver looked at a film.
We are sooo tired today after another night caughing.
I must say I was happily surprised with the result.

We are going to a birhtdayparty this weekend and I had to make a card for sweet Viktoria on her 35th one. She is a seamstress at the Operahouse in Gotherburg and I thought the little details would suit her perfectly.

Today I tried to colour with my distress inks. 
Not at all happy with the pink colours though.
But, my doughter loved it so I had to keep it.

I found this ribbon this week and it says "Happy birthday" in swedish.
I love these cotton or linnen ribbons.

This die is from Marianne Design and Pysselstina at Pysselskafferiet just got them this week.
I absolutly love this cute butterfly.
It´s tricky to get every bits and pieces out though...
The swirl is from Magnolia.

I used my big shot to cut these numbers out too.
Simple but nice detail.

At the marathon I went to a while back I bought these letterstickers.
Never used them before but here they are just perfect I think.

This is the inside of the card.
I usually don´t decorate the inside...
I know I´m terrible!!
 I´ll do better.

I´m entering this in Tomic´s challenge this week.

Hope you´ll have a nice weekend.

At the stables

Yesterday me and my doughter went to the stables and said hello to our horses.
Ninja is 22 years old and she is a real cutie. 
We have had her for 2 years. 
This summer we bought a foal.
His name is Zedrik and he was born in july 2011.
Adorable is the wright word for him!
Got inspired to make a card with my favorite stamp.

 I colored her a long time ago with my distress inks.
Thought it was fun to use the new feathers I got from Magnolia the other day.
My box with roses is getting empty..
It´s hard to find the wright colours right now.
Will have to fill it up :) 

Found the perfect challenge for this one at Just Magnolia. 
Tilda with a hat on.
I´m entering it their challenge this week.

Have a beautiful wednesday!

Gift for Emil on his christening

This weekend we went to Kinna, my old hometown,
 to visit friends for their sons christening.
It was so nice to meet them again.
I think it has been 3 years since I last saw them.
I made this box for him, little Emil.

I got this new diecut from Marianne design.
I love this butterfly!

I bought this box from Stina at Pysselskafferiet and thought it would be the perfect gift.
Inside I put two cute books and the sign for the door you can see in the last picture.
This little Edwin is adorable.
I found him and Tilda in a "salesbox" at Magnolia with older stamps 
and i had to have them...

This time I colored with Pro markers.
Can´t really get the different greens to blend properly.
Belive me, I have a few to try with.
Please give me some ideas if you can think of something that could help me.

The sign says:
"Emil is sleeping"
Perfect to hang on the door!

Have a fab tuesday!
