Ava med ballong.

Sommerens fødselsdagskort er ved at være færdige,
og står klare på skrivebordet.

Nu hvor dette kort -som er til en af mine niecer- er klart,
mangler jeg kun at lave kort til husets
mindstemand som bliver teenager i august.

Stemplet er et digistempel fra Saturated Canary,
en af Kristas skønheder.

Hun var som freebie på Kristas blog for en tid siden.
Tusind tak, hun er bare dejlig.

I får ét gæt på hvor papiret er fra;
var der nogen som sagde 'Maja Design'?

Ja det er fuldstændig rigtigt.
Jeg havde bestemt mig for at jeg ikke skulle
købe nogle ark af sommerens 'Life in' serier.

Men senest i dag har jeg været på
Hobbyhimmelen for at supplere!

Man har vel et standpunkt til man tar et nyt, ikke?

Banneret er lavet med min genfundne Magnolia die.
Blomster punched med retropunchen i to størrelser
og pyntet med knapper.

Ellers har jeg haft gang i 'Barte-punchen' på kanterne af motivet.

'Happy Birthday' er lavet med en Martha Stewart punch.

Tekststemplet inden i er en freebie fra Create With TLC.

Ava pynter også her, sammen med en strimmel mønsterpapir.

Her ser I bagsiden med mit 'håndlavet' af' stempel.

Til kortet malede jeg først et motiv men jeg syntes ikke
det blev helt vellykket og lavede et nyt.

Men hvad skulle jeg så stille op med det
som var halvvejs mislykket?

Jeg havde ikke hjerte til at smide det ud.

Istedet kom jeg på at lave et bogmærke.

En scalloped cirkel, seam binding og et par
punchede hjerter, og det var det.

Jeg har brugt denne sketch fra Papertake Weekly som udgangspunkt.
Den er roteret en gang.

M for Make A Gift, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

I know you have being waiting for this, the new challenge at
ABC Christmas Challenge.

Kelly is hosting this challenge, and I'm sure
you'll love the theme-or your friends and family will!

M for Make A Gift.

Anything you would be making and giving as a present
for Christmas will do , it can be a paper crafted item,
something you have hand made, or something
you have made to have the gift in, a box or a paper bag.

Sponsor for this challenge is our lovely Lacey,

One lucky winner will recive a $25 gift voucher.

Lacey is on vacation this week, but while she's away
there is a sale over at her store,
it will run through Friday 29th of June.

For this challenge I knew at once
that I would decorate a candle.

This is a brilliant present, and it's easy to make.

I have used wonderful 'Titania' from Sugar Nellie,
she is coloured with my Prismacolour pencils.

I have added a lot of Stickles on to
the dress her wings and the star.

A checkered ribbon and some hemp rope
(is this the right word?)
and a snowflake charm as decoration.

I also made a tag to go with the candle,
using the same image,
stamped on kraft paper.

Added some Stickles and punched a snowflake border .

Of course I had to have my personal stamp on the back side.

I wrapped the candle into cellophane, tied the tag to the top
and my first little present for Christmas is ready.

Now its your turn.
If you need some inspiration take a look at
the ABC Christmas Challenge.

My teamies has some awesome projects to share.

Liquid Refreshments, DTcard for HM&FMC.

Hi House Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers Lovers,
here is a reminder for the ongoing challenge at HM&FMC.

The theme chosen by Kate Wiles is


We are also celebrating 1000+ followers at the HM&FMC.

Not only do we have great sponsored prizes this time,
but some of the Mousey Designers will also have fab CANDY or
prizes to give away on their own blogs!
Fun, heh?

To win DT candy, you MUST follow all the DT's individual candy rules.

I have a candy for you, here is a link if you want to join in.

For this challenge we have
three fabulous sponsors:


One lucky winner will receive a free seat to a class of their choice.

I have used one of my newest HM images for today's card.
'Tin Can Showering' it's called, you can find it here.

Maybe not the first image you will think of if anyone
say 'Liquid Refreshments' to you.

But a shower in the summer heat is refreshing!
I love this image and it was a dream to colour.

The sentiment is a freebie from Create With TLC.
Thank you!

I have added Glossy Accent and Stickles onto the water,
not easy to see, but IRL it looks great.

The papers in blue and green are from Little Yellow Bicycle and Bo Bunny.

Inside a showering mouse and a wave board made with a Fiskars punch.

My usual backside with elements from the front.

.:Pom Pom:.

Det bedste man kan sige om sommervejret som det er lige nu,
er at det egner sig glimrende til at pysle!

Det blev en våd St. Hans, og for første gang på flere år
var vi ikke på Storenes og se på bål. ØV.

Søndagen er blevet brugt til at lave et fødselsdagskort til
en charmerende lille pige der snart bliver 2 år.

Jeg har brugt et nyindkøbt stempel fra Lily of the valley,
Pom Pom hedder det. Rigtig sødt synes jeg.

Mønsterpapiret er 'Kioshi' fra Basic Grey.
Dejlige sommerfarver i lilla og grøn.

Banneret er lavet med en die fra Magnolia.

Den die var til min store ærgelse væk længe,
men pludselig en dag fandt jeg den, den havde
på et eller andet vis forvildet sig op i min store
snefnug punch fra Martha Stewart.

Ikke kom med nogen kommentarer om at jeg roder ting væk!

Jeg har helt overgået mig selv i brugen af blomster på dette kort.
Hele 6 stk! Og en lille sommerfugl blev der også plads til.

Kortet skal afleveres og ikke sendes,
så pynten skal ikke 'stemples' af postvæsnet.

Bagsiden behøver vel ikke den store beskrivelse,
den er som næsten altid en lille kopi af forsiden.

Jeg har brugt sketchen fra The Sketchy Challenge.

Time to relax, inspiration card for Prairie Fairy Designs!

It's Friday and it's my turn to I to share a creation I have
made with one of Roberta's sweet digi images.

Chef Gillian, she's called, and I love her!
You can find her in the Prairie Fairy Design Shop.

I decided to make a Flip Tag card, inspired by this card made a while ago by Anita.

I think I'll use it together with a bottle of wine or some chocolate,
if somebody invites us for a barbecue during the summer ;)

The image is coloured with distress reinkers.

A close-up of Gillian. Can you se her earrings?
They are made with Perfect Pearls.

The flowers are from Nille, a shop where you can by
all sorts of things!

The design paper with summer colours are
Marrakech from Basic Grey.

Here you can se the card when it's open.

I have used a freebie sentiment from Create With TLC,
Paulette makes a lot of fabulous sentiments.

On the other side there is space for writing a regard.

And here a look at the back side,
the front in miniatyr and my personal stamp.

Have a great weekend, relax and enjoy the good life.

Don't forget to keep checking back to see all the PF Inspiration!

The Holly and the Ivy, Mid-Way card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Hey there, great to hear you singing and humming.
Are you ready for a new song?

I'm sure you remember Carissa's

L for Lyrics

theme for the biweekly challenge at the ABC Christmas Challenge.

The team have made some more card to inspire you.

We have two sponsors for the L challenge:

Heidi from Simon Says Stamp is giving a $15 voucher to the store.

Simon Says Stamp.

The other sponsor is Krista Smith from Saturated Canary Shop.

Krista offers two of her wonderful digi images
for a lucky winner.

So come on, grab your rubber and design paper and create.
We can't wait to be seeing your christmas related projects
and start singing your song!

Today I made a card without design paper,
but instead a lot of distressing and embossing.

And I'm rather pleased with the result!
(If I may say so)

The cute House Mouse image is Holly Sailing,you can
find this- and a lot more- in the Simon Says Stamp Store.

I added a lot of Stickles on to the snow.

The beautiful snowflake charm is from a wonderful
Christmas candy I won at Elain's blog a while ago.
Thank you Elain.

Oh, my song/lyrics?

'The Holly and the Ivy'!

I had to ask my teamies for some song inspiration ;)

Thanks Lols.

My usual backside, with my 'Handmade by Dorte' stamp.
