Market Street Stamps - Color Cue challenge 4

Hi there!
Can´t belive it! But I´m actually up for my third blogpost - today! Yaay me!! = )
Dobea, my fellow teamer at 365 Cards, pointed out a fun challenge for me today. And I felt for having a go at it!
It´s a color cue challenge over at Market Street Stamps. See if you can guess the colors...? ; )

Right! Dusty grey, ruby red and turquoise!

I brought out my naughty rocker girl and started to color her ...the rest just fell into place.

And, as usual, I used my distress inkpads and waterbrush for coloring. Added som glossy accent to her eyes and mouth..

Love it when someone throws a good challenge at you! Soo...thanks Dobea...keep bringin´them on! = )

And now...it´s time to head for the bed! Tomorrow will be a very busy day. We have to put up a wall in the girls room...they want their own, separate bedrooms. And tomorrow we are able to have my parents taking care of the kids for us. Hope it will make the job a bit easier...

See you soon!

And another Super Sketchy Sunday card! = )

Hi again!
Short blogpost this time. Not like my previous one, haha. = )
Super Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards...and I have, of course, a card for you!
Since we also have a new sponsor this week - Digi Darla - we got to play with one of their digis. I chose this cute little sailboat.
Colored with my distress ink pads and waterbrush, then gently cut out with a crafting knife and finally mounted on pop dots for some dimension.

I couldn´t resist the chance to use loads of flowers...think it fits the summer theme pretty good, right?!

And a close-up on the sweet sailboat. I put some glossy accent on the waves..I don´t know if you can see it in the picture or not. But it´s there.

The sentiment is in swedish and mean " Happy summer".

If you feel inspired to have a go at the sketch yourself, here it is!

And, of course, we would love to see what you create. So don´t forget to add a link to your blog when you´re ready.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Busy playing along...

Hi there!
Jepp! Like I said, I´ve been busy playing along with this weeks challenges over at 365 Cards.
I finally had a night to myself and felt my creativity going. And the result are these cards. Enjoy!


For day 137. A photograph, a vintage-style item and soft colors. ( I went for a rebel take on this one...regarding the photo I meen. )


Day 136. Sponging, scallops and stitching.

One more rebel take...about the stitching. Think I´m allergic to needles and thread ; )
I made my own mask by using 4 sheets of post-it notes and letting them thru my border punch before attaching them to my paper. Then adding different colors and some stamping. Love the result!


Day 135. Chipboard, patterned paper and fringe.

Ok, I have to confess...I don´t have a clue about what fringe meens...but I guess it´s a kind of thread or lace. Well, at least it is now, haha, since that´s what I used on my card! ; )

Super girly....! I embossed the chipboard with black powder at first and the second coating with red powder. Nice effect, where you still can see a little of the black!


Day 134. Buttons, ric-rac and pearls.

Tough one! I usually never use either buttons or ric-rac...
This card is made for a special purpose. I will give it to my son when he comes back from Vancouver. The sentiment reads "Welcome home".


Day 133. Lace, pins and glitter.

I went for plenty of lace...and a little less glitter. But you will find the glitter on the flowers.

Ok...that was all I had to show for now...my next blogpost will be up soon, with my take on the Sunday Sketch. So feel free to come back for more... ; )

Have a lovely week everyone...and thanks for looking!

Back on track...!

I´m back on track again!
These last couple of weeks have been quite busy... Last Friday, on July the 1:st, I said goodby to my oldest son and sent him to Vancouver, Canada for a one month stay. He´s representing Sweden on a camp held by CISV ( Childrens International Summer Village ). He is only 11 years old and have never been abroad before...not even been on a plane!

So, I guess you can imagine the butterflies in my stomach before he left!

But that was a week ago, and I have seen some pictures of how much fun he´s having over there, so now I´m back on track again!! = )
And I really enjoyed taking on this weeks Sunday sketch at 365 Cards. So fun and versatile!
Hope you´ll enjoy both my card and the sketch....

Quite colorful, right?! Not my usual choice of colors, but it was fun to go a bit "wild and crazy".

And the sketch then...great one, don´t you think?!

If you´ll have a go at the sketch, don´t forget to stop by at 365 Cards to let us know. And while you´re there...check out my fellow dt-sisters awsome work! They sure rock!! = )

Well...here in Sweden it´s summer and it is soo lovely. We have had the opportunity to enjoy some really sunny and hot days here..and I´m about to get out into my garden to let myself have a tan....see you soon! = )
