A few cards.. and my sweet, little boy.

So it´s Sunday...again. I don´t understand how fast time flies some days...
But I have taken the time to be crafty . So, today I have three cards show you .. Yeeeay!

First out is the card for this Sunday Sketch on 365 Cards ( which you will find HERE ). I really liked this sketch! Easy to make different takes on it!
Some Odd Girl are sponsoring us girls on the 365 Cards-team, with some lovely digistamps. I choose this little darling - "Lounging Kaylee" . Isn´t she cute, or what!
Coloured her with my distress inkpads and a waterbrush.

My second card is for inspiration on Scrapptorget. We are having a colour-challenge this month. One are to use only the colours lilac, green and brown!
On this card, I have, once again, worked with my distress pads. I inked the paper with "dusty concord", "bundled sage" and "brushed courdoroy". Then sprinkled on some water and let the paper soak it up a little before pressing a papertowel onto it to get rid of the rest of the water.

Once the paper was competely dry, I stamped the Tim Holtz image right onto it, using "vintage photo" and "walnut stain". Simply mounted it onto a piece of brown cardstock and thenadded the ribbon...

The last card, that I´m going to show today, is inspiration for the same colour-challenge .But this time I have used the sweet digistamp " Vintage Bonnett" from Digi Doodle Shop. Coloured with distress inkpads and a waterbrush...

The lovely sentiment reads "Love, Enjoy, Live!" I think it says it all!

I have also used brown cardstock, lilac dotted cardstock and a piece of lilac lace.

The last two cards are pretty tiny... the last one is only 10x10 cm.... But the perfect size to fit in a bouquet of flowers! = )


Today, I also want to share a photo of my youngest son, Ivan.
I am soo grateful for having him with me!

This weekend he choked on half a piece of hot-dog bun.

And, for a second or two, it looked really bad. He was getting no air at all and he was looking at me with his beautiful eyes. He was pretty cool and calm.. I could see that he had full confidence in me solving the situation..... and so I did! Thank God!

But afterwards, I was pretty shaken up by the fact that I almost lost my sweet, little prince...
All´s well, that ends well...!!

Well... that was what I had to show for today. Hope that you are checking out the 365 Cards and Scrapptorget. The talented girls, on those teams, have lots of inspiration for you to feast your eyes on !

Have a wonderful day....!

  3. Hi Sophia,

    I'm so glad your little guy is ok. Praise God! Something similar happened to us one time with my (now 26 year old) son. He some how got a rose thorn down his throat. Luckily, my then husband was a ex perimetic, and got it out.

    This little card is just lovely. Thank you sweetie, for using one of my stamps, it's just beautiful!!!
