(#79-86 and bonus card)

It's about time this blog was updated again, I've been a bit lazy with updating the blog (NOT lazy making cards - I finished 40 christmas cards om Monday...), so here are a few of the ones I made. Sorry for the poor photoquality, but I had to take the pictures in a rush (exuses...).

Since it's been a week since the last update I included a bonus card as well. maybe that'll outweight leaving out descriptions. (Just ask in a comment if there's anything you're curious about).

Oh, and by the way: I finally got the tattoo started :D

(#76,77 and 78)

Dear reader of this blog, I sincerely appologise for not posting the last couple of days - there was a tiny matter with "one album in one night"-class I had to prepare and hold keeping me away from the keyboard. Anyway, here are the cards for Monday, yesterday and today. They are all Christmas cards made with papers from Tinkering Ink (from last year). As you might see from the cards I went a little bananas with my borderpunches and the scalloped cuttingblade for my Fiskars trimmer (me likes it, big time).

As to what I'll show tomorrow: Que sera, sera (whatever will be, will be, the future's not ours to see).

It's about time for a Pyramid card, me thinks. This one is made of 2 sheets of Basic Gray Paper and some satin ribbon, that's all.

C U tomorrow, then is Christmastime again
"Christmas Time, Mistletoe and Wine"

Todays card was supposed to be inspired by the rainbow connection, but... I'm not exactly happy with it. It was a quick one since i had to go to a party tonight :o)

Have a nice day all.

(Card 73 - Rainbow connection)

Recently I deiscovered Sarah McLachlans version of the Muppets classic song Rainbow Connection, and so I was inspired by it to make a rainbow card. Or that was the plan and then I realised that I had used the papers that was required (some from October Afternoon). Now the papers used are from OA but from a different line. So the Rainbow connection card isn't quite done yet, me thinks.

CS: Bazzill
PP: October Afternoon
Punch: Whale of a punch
Other: Tattered angels Shimmer Mist

Kristines blogcandy

Kristine har lagt ut en blogcandy i bloggen sin siden hun feirer at bloggen er 1 år. Hun lager seriøst fine kort, så ta en titt i bloggen hennes dere :D

(Card 72)

Like yesterdays card this was made with the beautiful stamp from Malins Papilio Stamps (they are just sooo adorable). It's basically version 2, but with sentiment stamp from Inkido (girl am I glad I bought it last year, it's my favourite text stamp).

Thanks for looking.

PS Look out for an upcoming "Rainbow Connection" card...

(Sneak peak - christmas present)

Hey, blog post number 2 today, what's going on? Nothing wrong fortunately, I was just a little happy about how this LO turned out. It's part of my parents Christmas gift, so I won't show that much more of it (they are getting a 2009 calendar - and this is the November LO). The picture is my late paternal grandparents wedding photo, and since they were married in 1939, I wanted to give the LO a vintage feel (not really sure if I should add some lace or not). Recently some of the Tim Holtz masks landed in my mailbox, and these clocks were just perfect for the feeling I wanted to give the LO.

Thanks for looking :)

Oh by the way, have you seen my good friend Hannas blog was featured on Inspirational! Yey, Go Hanna!

(Shees baack)

Yepp, I'm back, not from the dead but from a long break from cardmaking. The creativity just hasn't been at it's peak lately, so I gave myself a break from the 365-cards challenge. But now I'm back! I've had the chance to crop with some of my best friends as well as been to Papirfest, that was such a vitamin-shot :) At Papirfest I attended 2 classes with My Little Yellow Bicycle (Hi, Sharon Ann and Jynene!) and 2 with Malin - it was simply GREAT!

Sooo over to the card, number 71, since it's not that long until Christmas it's about time to start the assemblyline for Christmas cards, here's my first this year.

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: Basic Grey
Stamps: Stempelglede, hÄnglar&stÄnglar
Colour: Distress Ink
Ink: StazOn

Thanks for looking - it's good to be back
