I väntan på glass

Färg-inspirationen fick jag från Sketchy Colors (Peach, cream, green) och övrig inspiration från Suzy Bee (Ice cream colors: peach, vanilla and pear/apple - doesn't it look like the dog is waiting form some ice cream to fall?), Creative Knockouts (Dry Embossing), Dream Valley (Embossing) och Penny's (Ribbon or twine).

Gate fold julkort


Det nyaste jag prövat på är gate fold kort, vilket känns som en kul grej att göra kort lite mer speciella! Men helt lätt är det inte att till en början komma på vad som inverkar på vad, tex blev "skylten" för texten lite väl liten - i annat fall kunde den komma på bilden en bit, men inte med denna korttyp. Jag deltar i följande utmaningar: Dies R Us (Christmas in July), Winter Wonderland (Use a charm), Inky Chicks (Metal Embellishment), Crafty Ribbon (ATG), The Crafter's Café (Christmas in July), Send a Smile 4 Kids (Christmas in July) och CCAYR (Dots & Stripes).

Feeling Sassy

Don't get how this was so difficult to take a pic of, especially as I was doing it in broad daylight (a luxury I seldom have), e.g. the bling in the paper hardly shows at all, and neither does the bow. Oh well, you'll just have to trust me on this one :)

I'm participating in: DTBS (Sparkle is a Girls BFF), Graph'It (Two color tones: Red & Blue), Glitter'n'Sparkle (Something with B: Blue and Bling), Sketch Saturday, Creative Moments (Bingo: Ribbon - Image - Pearls), Polkadoodle (2 or more patterned papers), Simon Says Wednesday (Sparkle and Shine) and Crafty Ribbon (ATG).

Sommarkul

Tyvärr har vädret och vattentemperaturen inte möjliggjort så mycket vattenkul i sommar, men tur nog finns det andra sätt att chilla :)

P*skishaasteen supersankari

P*skarteluhaasteessa on luonnos (jee!), joten käänsin luonnoksen ja sitten syntyi tällainen yksinkertainen, kimalteleva poikakortti.

You're a Star!

You know that feeling when you see a card somewhere and you just have to make something similar? Well, for me that happened the other day when I saw over at the Papertake Weekly (Build it Up) the lovely card by Mary (unfortunately she has not yet published her card there) and wanted to do something very similar.
I'm also participating in: Top Tip Tuesday (Bingo: Embossing - Sentiment - Die cut/punches), Avenue 613 (ATG w/ stars / moon), TTCRD (ATG), Crafty Gals Corner (To Die for), Fab'n'Funky (No patterned papers), Dream Valley (Embossing) and Simply Paper Craft.

The Princess sends her thanks!

I recycled a fab envelope, as the geometric shapes are cut out from it and everything that looks brown-ish is actually glittering gold/bronze, cut from the inner part of the envelope. So I felt pretty clever with that :)

Joululauluja

Joululaulut ovat parhaimpia / pahimpia korvamatoja.... Nytkin keskellä heinäkuuta joululaulut monella eri kielellä vaan soi ja soi korvieni välissä... Noh, kunhan vaan kaupat eivät aloittaisi niiden soittamisen lokakuussa!

Osallistun seuraaviin haasteisiin: Catch the Bug (Jingle all the way - there are some bells here but I'm mainly thinking about the carol(s)), Aloha Friday (Christmas in July), CHNC (Deck the halls - and I must admit to that even though I'm quite good at English I suddenly became unsure as to the meaning, but my inspiration here is Christmas songs as that is where I recognize the line from), CHNC Extra (Christmas), Come and Get It (Christmas in July,) Papertake Weekly (ATG) ja Sassy (Christmas in July).

The Value of a Moment

Jag gillar den här kortmallen eftersom jag klippt till den med frihand, dvs den är förlåtande och kräver inte exakta mått. Stämplar är inte (ännu) min grej, men kanske det ännu blir det, jag gillar min cyklande Bella, och har nu tagit fram några andra stämplar för sommarsemestern. Det här kortet gjorde jag till min väninna som fyller år, hon gör ofta kloka reflektioner så därför tänkte jag att ett citat passar bättre än ett Grattis.

Jag delatr i: Di's Digis (Celebrations), Crafty Ribbon (Bicycles), Fan-Tastic Tuesday (In the Garden), Artistic Inspirations (ATG w/ twist of Summer), I love Promarkers (Sports, even though the pace here is quite leisurely), Open Minded Crafting Fun (Photo Inspiration), Passion for Promarker (Fancy that) och Creative Inspirations (Girlie).

Tea party in the garden

I'm imagining this grand lady organising a teaparty in her garden, where there would also be something a little bit stronger on offer, like some bubbly as represented by my bit that I cut off from a cork and added some glitter to.

My lady participates in the following challenges: Allsorts (How does your garden grow - but if I were to take it literally I would have to have only weeds here ;), Passion for Promarker (Fancy that), Simon Says Monday (Coffee or tea - or actually tea or bubbly in this case), Pile it on (Hot fun in the summer time), Fan-Tastic Tuesday (In the Garden), Artistic Inspirations (ATG w/ twist of Summer), Glitter'n'Sparkle (ATG) and Suzy Bee (Make it Floral)
