Lykkelig candy vinner!

Se hvad jeg fik i posten den anden dag, hvor er jeg heldig!

Jeg vandt en dejlig blog candy hos Joanna Sheen Challenge.
Tusind tak!

En lækker bog fyldt med masser af ideer til kort med House Mouse motiver.
Der følger en CD med bogen, med motiver, tekster og papir,
lige til at printe ud fra PC'en.

Jeg ved næsten ikke hvor jeg skal begynde.

Jeg har ingen erfaring med printerindstillinger og type papir,
så jeg er modtagelig for alle tips.

Jeg tror dette kan blive et af mine første projekter....

Q for Quilting, a Midway reminder..

We are halfway through Helen's Q for Quilting challenge at

ABC Christmas Challenge.

Don't panic, you still have plenty of time to join inn.

Making a card with quilting is a fantastic way to use
some of your small bits of paper leftovers.

I have used some of the first Christmas papers I bought;
it's 'Wassail' from Basic Grey.

I can't believe I still have some pieces left from that line!

The image is new, she's from a lovely Birthday blog candy
I won a while ago at Elain's place.

Thank you, Elain.

It's a Simply Gorjuss image.

The border punch is from Martha Stewart, and the flowers.....?

The round 'Merry Christmas' sentiment is from Magnolia.

The backside like always at mine cards,
the front in miniatyr.

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge

Prize from Lili of the Valley

Prize from Crop Stop a $15 gift certificate.

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies,
please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.

.: A Present Card:.

Some time ago I was asked if I would like to be
a Guest Designer at Top Tip Tuesday.

I had to think, let's say 5 secs before I said
' Who? Me? YES , I would love to!'

So here I am a few weeks later with my little creation.

Bettina is the host of this challenge, and since the
Top Tip Tuesday
is celebrating their 2 years Birthday the theme is:

Birthday Gift.

Make a gift for some one, a box or a bag
or use an image with a gift on.

If you need some inspiration, head over to the
Top Tip Tuesday challenge blog
and see what the team has created.

Remember you can also leave a tip
if you have something to share.

A while ago I found a card similar to this at Dena's blog,
and knew at once that I would try to make one myself one day.

You can remove the top/lid, and pull up the card inside.


I have used a new Magnolia image of mine, Tilda with Daisy,
you can find it at Stamp and Create.

The beautiful purple papers are from Maja Design.
Pearls and flowers from Kort og Godt Hobby.
The leaves are made with a MS punch.

The round sentiment is from LOTV.

Faux stitching at the card.

I don't really have a tip to share, just a little advise;
when you make a card ex like this, try to think
through what is practical to do first.

Don't do it my way, I had to glue on the ribbon
as one of the last things. That was a bit tricky!

And when you are going to use your sewing machine,
remember it's difficult to sew in adhesive!

There are two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

Lacey from Stamp and Create

giving a $25 gift certificate to the store.

giving four digi images of winners' choice.

I made a shaped card for this challenge, I found the wonderful pencil tutorial here.
Thanks a lot for sharing, Tania.

My pencil is a bit longer than the one in the tutorial.

The paper is from Sandylion.

I find the sentiment from Kraftin' Kimmie
so perfect for my image.
Do you sometimes have 'one of those days'?
I think we all have from time to time.

The image is called ' Little Nibbler', you can find it here
at House Mouse Designs, our sponsor this time.

For the back side I couldn't resist to make a 'handmade by'
circle using a Whipper Snapper image-
'Pointy Pencil' and my personal stamp.

Our wonderful sponsor for the challenge is House-Mouse Designs.

One random winner wil recive a $25 gift certificate to the shop.

A second prize given by America.

Henry ønsker tillykke!

Hvem kan modstå ønsket om at lave et fødselsdagskort
med Henry fra Whiff of Joy, ikke jeg?

Han er min yngste søns favorit til kort.

Henry er i godt selskab med mønsterpapiret fra Maja Design.

Jeg fandt et tips om hvordan man laver et banner her,
det er slet ikke svært, prøv selv.

Jeg beklager de dårlige farver på mine fotos,
I er nødt til at tage dem som de er, kortet er afleveret,
og jeg får ikke til at redigere!

Stickles på kagen, Henry er altså ikke så bleg som han ser ud til!

Plads til en pengeseddel bag gratulererstemplet fra kort og godt.

Stjernepunchen er fra Magnolia.

Tja bagsiden, er der så meget at sige om den?

Q for Quilting, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Better late than never, I'm sorry for being late posting
my card for the new challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge.

I spend the main part of yesterday afternoon and night
at the hospital with my youngest son.

He had an accident at school and broke his arm,
and had to have a surgery to get it fixed.

But we are back home now, the surgery was - so far-successful.

My little (13 years!) man was so brave, I'm so proud of him.

Now back to the new challenge!

Helen is the one hosting today, and the theme is

Q for Quilting.

Make a patchwork quilt effect on your card/project.

Helen has made a great step by step tutorial if you do need it.

I've inked up one of my oldest stamps,
' A Hug for Ike' from Whipper Snapper.
I can't understand why it's such a long time since
I've used this image,
because I find it so cute, and easy to colour!

The papers are from Maja Design.
I cut out four squares and shared each of them in two.

Easy peasy!

I cut out a circle in acetate, run it through'
a snowflake Cuttlebug folder,
and mounted Ike and Mike on to it.

The pretty ribbon is from IKEA!

The front in miniatyr and my personal stamp.

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge

Prize from Lili of the Valley

Prize from Crop Stop a $15 gift certificate.

and our awesome guest designers, please pop over to the

and I have added a bling on to each.

The sentiment is from Kreativ Hobby.

A close up on the lovely cuties, can you see
the Stickles added to the flowers?

På vej....

Jeg håber at dette kort har haft travelt og er kommet
vel frem til modtageren, det kom lidt sent afsted!

Stemplet er fra Sugar Nellie 'Butterflies & Pigtails' hedder det.
Det er første gang det er i brug.

Mønsterpapiret er fra Basic Grey, 'Kissing Booth';
ikke de farver jeg bruger oftest, men arkene var så flotte,
og hoppede op i handlekurven af sig selv.

Sommerfuglene er punched ud med en Martha Stewart punch
og klippet fra hinanden.

Det runde tekststempel er fra Whimsy Stamps,
perler fra Kort og Godt.

Båndet med 'Happy Birthday' vandt jeg hos Tanja
for længe siden. Her passede det helt perfekt.
Tak Tanja.

Her er hele remsen med sommerfuglene.

Falske syninger hele vejen rundt, symaskinen står så alt for langt væk..

Jeg har brugt Maria-Thesese's sketch fra The Sugar Bowls

More Paper Piecing, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

Here is a quick reminder for this fortnights challenge at
ABC Christmas Challenge.

is hosting and her theme is a favourite of mine:

P for Paper Piecing!

If you haven't tried this technique yet, you should give it a try.
It's funny and easy.

Take a look here and see what my teamies has created.
I'm sure you'll be inspired.

I have masked together two Magnolia images,
'Tilda Decorates Christmas Tree', and 'Christmas Tree',
the first one is available at Simon Says Stamp,
who's one of our sponsors. I could not find the tree there.

The papers are 'Lost & Found Christmas'
from My Mind's Eye. Lovely papers.
I have used the 6x6 paper pad.

I have distressed all edges today.

Tilda's dress is paper pieced and I have added a lot of Stickles on her wings.

The round sentiment is from Catslife Press.

I love the kraft together with the deep red.

The backside as always, my personal stamp,
and elements from the front page.
