.: Sunday with lovely KLM :.

Hi everyone!

Can you belive how time flies...? It´s already Sunday and I don´t know were this week went...
Recognize the feeling..?
Well, anyway, it´s time for Super Sketchy Sunday on 365 Cards! Wee-hoo! Hope you get to play along.

365 Cards

Pam has given us a lovely sketch to play with and...also managed to get KLM Digital Designs to sponsor us! This is the second time that they are so generous to sponsor us! Thanks a lot for that! Soo apprecieted.

And here´s the sketch to play with... enjoy!

And here´s my take on it. Couldn´t resist twisting and turning it a bit ; )

On this card, I have been working with two separet digi-images... "Bunny and Bear" and "Sampler´s Block". The first one I coloured with distress inkpads and a waterbrush... and the second one I tried paper piecing..

A close-up on the sweet "Bunny and Bear" -digi from KLM. They are soo sweet, I think.

And another close-up... on the "Sampler´s Block". I printed it on three different design papers and then cut out the little pieces, one by one ,and then putting them together like this. It take´s a while... but I think it was worth the effort.

Hope you check out 365 Cards and all the gorgeous cards provided by the talented ladies there. And please, come play with us! We have some great prizes for some lucky winners..
Have a great Sunday!

.: Get Sketchy! :.

Just in for a quick post....

Yesterday I stumbled across a fun sketch over at Get Sketchy. I just had to try it!

And here´s the result... Think I gave it a masculine look, don´t you think?

I used regular post-it notes to mask of pieces of the paper. Then I used distressink, both on the background and on the images. When, taking of the post-it notes, I stamped the sentiment and the car on top of it all.
Soo... what do you think..? Do you like my take on the sketch..?
I sure had fun creating it!

Ok... that´s all for now...Have to go out and check on my kids... they wanted to wash my car..hmmm...don´t think that´s such a good idea...! ; )

Have a great weekend folks!

.: Just for you, Amy :.

Hi folks!
I went visiting one of the most talented cardmakers I know, Amy.
She challenges everyone to re-post the first card they ever blogged.... as if I could resist a good challenge ; )
Soo... this is for you Amy...the first cards I ever put on my blog.
The date was september 7:th 2008, I think.

The first one... with this cute little dragon, was sent to a blogfriend along with a little RAK...

Well, look... a Magnolia-girl... coloured with promarkers...

...and just another sweet Magnolia....
These three cards were posted at the same time... thats why I´m showing you three cards instead of just one. Hope you don´t mind ; )
Think I have worked up my cardmaking skills since then... ( or, at least I like to think I have )
Ok Amy... did you enjoy this...? Like to think I gave you a good laugh... ; )
Ok... that´s it for now... have to get back to my kids... fever from hell... nice? NOT!!

.: Thank you ... with a cute cat :.

Summer is still here! It´s pretty warm, even in the shadows.
Soon will the kids go back to school.. but for a few more days, we´re enjoying our lazy days in the sun!

I have a new card to show you... yes... It´s Sunday, and that always calls for a new great Sunday Sketch at 365 Cards.

365 Cards

And here´s the awesome sketch....

And Pamela has managed to find us a new gorgeous sponsor! It´s Robyns Fetish .
Wee-hoo! I just looove this cute digi that I worked with... (and a few other as well... ; )

We had a few digis to choose from, and, for the first time ever, I felt like working with a cute cat-image.

Could it have something todo with the fact that we just recently welcomed two adorable little kitten into our family ; ) They are named Pepsi and Sprite and I will show you pictures of them later on.

Well... I wanted to try something a little bit different with this digi. Usually I just print them out in the size desired and then colour them. But not this time...

... no, I wanted to make my own pattern paper and then take it from there.

And here´s the result.... like it..?

I printed the image onto plain coloured scrapbook-paper. I then used promarkers to give, just two of the cats, a little extra colour. I coloured them with light grey and used a darker grey to enhance the outlines.

Some glossy accent on noses and necklaces... and a lovely rose to giveaway = )
I gently cut the paper so I could let the rose in under one feet. Used scrappyglue to make it stay in place.
The sentiment " Tack" means "thanks"... and this card will be given to one of the most sweet neighbours on earth! They have been taken care of our kittens when we were on vacation.
I hope you are checking out 365 Cards today... the ladies have so much inspiration to share with you all... so go on...you don´t wanna miss it!
Have great Sunday everyone... and remember... I love it when you take your time to write me a comment... who knows.. I might have some goodies to share with one of you! ;)

.: Skolstart :.

Hej allesammans!
Visst är det skönt med det underbara sommarvädret! Tyvärr verkar det även som om mitt huvud tar liiite mer semester än jag tänkt... ; )
Idag var det liksom meningen att jag skulle ha bloggat för Scrapptorgets räkning... redan kl 7 brukar vi ställa in oss på... klockan blev klart mer än så kan jag lova!
Men nu ligger det uppe lite bilder där. = )

Min äldsta son, Isak, har varit lite slarvig med att komma ihåg sina läxor... vilka läxorna är och till när de skall vara färdiga.
Inför den här terminen tänkte jag att jag skulle ge honom en almenacka som han kan ha med till skolan och där han lätt kan skriva upp allt han behöver.

Soo.. without further notice... här kommer lite bilder på almenackan.

Framsidan. Lite glitterlim i orange på kanterna av eldsflammorna. Namnet skrivet på dymoremsor.
En liten close-up... här ser man att det glittrar.

Ytterligare en close-up... denna gång på baksidan. Eldsflammor och döskallar stod högst på Isaks önskelista när jag frågade om stil. ; )
Och såhär ser hela baksidan ut.
Kanske inte så avancerad, varken i teknik eller material, men den är perfekt för sitt endamål... och Isak gjorde tummen upp direkt när han såg den. DET är det bästa betyget man kan få ; )
Hoppas bara att den kommer att fungera så som jag har tänkt mig... men det återstår att se. = )
Ha en fortsatt trevlig helg allesamman!
Tack för att du kikar in hos mig...
~KRAM! ~

Sweet `n Sassy

Hi everyone!
I´m a bit late posting my card for Super Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards. It´s because I´ve been away on a short vacation with my family. But rather late , then never, right? ; )

365 Cards

This week we have a new fun sponsor - Sweet `n Sassy Digi Stamps ! Wee-hoo for that!
Their shop is packed with wonderful and sweet digis... so go check it out.

Super Sketchy Sunday... (even if it´s tuesday today).. and that calls for a new fun sketch to interpret. Pamela never let us down. ( I wonder how she manages to come up with all these wonderful sketches? I´m soo impressed with that! )

And here you have my take on Pamelas sketch and a lovely Gladiolus ... a digi stamp from Sweet ´n Sassy. Coloured with distress ink and waterbrush.

I worked only with cardstock on this card. Using one of my cuttlebug embossing folders to get a bit of texture.
I think, that sometimes, there´s no need for a lot of patterned paper and a busload of embellishments. Sometimes clean and simple is just perfect ! Don´t you agree?

To make the card a little more interesting, I used one of my border punches on the lower side of the card. And on the inside, I put a piece of pink cardstock, with the same border to match when seen from the outside.

Ok... have to go... I think my son is ill and have to go to the doctor... so bye, for now!

So this is Sunday..

...Yes it is!
And that, of course, means another Super Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards!
365 Cards

This week we have a fabulous sponsor - CropStop ! They are having a giftcertificat for one lucky winner... so, make sure to enter in this weeks challenges!

Super Sketchy Sunday I said... that calls for a sketch to follow, right? And Pamela never disappoints us...here´s the sketch for today. Enjoy!

And I so loved it!

My card came out pretty clean and simple, yet beautiful.

I used one of my Spellbinder dies on folded cardstock, topped it with the pattern paper ( from a Swedish designer - Maja Design ), stamped the sweet birds and the sentiment and then added just one little black gem on the heart. Voilá!
From start to finish, I guess it took me about 15 minutes... most of that time was spent on finding my pattern paper... ; )

As always, I´m hoping you are checking out the other talented girls, on 365 Cards, and their gorgeous cards. We have soo much inspiration to share.... = )
Have a great week everyone!
