BlogCandy: a whole bunch of yummy goodies!

This will stay pinned to the top of my blog until Sept. 27th., 
so scroll on down for new posts!
[EDITED: Blogcandy extented 48hrs.]

As promised a while back, I would have some yummy blogcandy for my followers soon ~ and here it is, finally! Best of luck to everyone!
 

Contents: Lots n lots of ribbons, stamps, stickers, brads, bling/droplets, foam shapes, flowers & to top it all off, I offer a free choice of one digistamp from my etsy shoppe DigiDoodleStamps by Tindaloo to the lucky winners! I've also included an QK-die and a keepsake trinket in the first candy. SO much goodies here :)

Click on the photos to view the contents better! :)
 
 There are TWO Blogcandies, with two separate winners!

BlogCandy #1. is for EVERYONE and will be sent WORLDWIDE! Leave your info in the link-up below. (Duplicate entries or fakes will be deleted so the draw is fair)
BlogCandy #2. is a BONUS chance to win for the Nordic countries only: Du må legge igjen en kommentar for å vinne denne, skriv for eksempel 'Jatakk begge deler!' ;) 

So it is simples really! Open to ALL my fellow crafters (you don't need to have a blog, just leave you fb-adress or other web-address you frequent). I would sure appreciate it if you were a follower of my blog, but it's not necessary to win though ;)

I'd also be very happy (but it's no obligation) if you spread the word by mentioning this candy with a link and/or photo of it, either on your own blog (sidebar is fine) or other, like a pin, instagram, facebook, twitter etc. But please ~ NO Candy only bloggers ~ Then enter your info in the inlinkz below! (your email will only be visible to me).


EDITED: Blogcandy has been extented 48hrs. from the original date ~ My bad, I shared the wrong time several places and to make it all fair and square, I've added two days to the timer :)
BlogCandy #3. Because of this delay I will pick THREE bonus winners of one digistamp as well! (both inlinks entries and commentary entries are eligeble to win, three different random picks though).

The blogcandies will now end on September 27th. at 23:55/11:55 PM.
That's norwegian time ~ see my sidebar clock.

Goth Girl ♥ Birthday card


Jeg ville lage et bursdagskort som både var jentete og goth samtidig ~ så jeg var heldig og fikk denne kjempestilige goth-jenta fra vår sponsor SLS lines som motiv til mitt DT kort for Creative Fingers #116. Vår andre flotte sponsor er Scrap N' Dipity. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)
 

Må bare beklage at jeg har vært lite å se rundt i bloggland i det siste, slitt med helsa, og akkurat nå har jeg også hatt behandling for psoriasis på hendene med UV-lys 3 ganger i uka, to timers biltur hver gang.. Så slitsomt, men oi for en forandring! Har ikke hatt så fine hender på 15 år! Så tommeln opp for det :)
Har du sett BlogCandyen min forresten? Bonus vinnersjangse for de som bor innom Norden! :)

I have to apologize first of all for my absence around blogland, and commenting which has been sporadic at best. My health has not been so good, and the last weeks has been especially taxing. Having psoriasis treatment with UV lights on my hands three times a week for barely 3 minutes each time - but having to travel two hours for it anyway is very tiring, when my back is already bothering me and other fibromyalgia pains. Just happy migraines been playing nice, knock on wood ;) But my cracked hands are almost completely healed, not looked this good in 15 years, so I'm very happy about that! (It used to be such a big bother to get ink in those cracks too, looked even worse *lol*)

I wanted to make a both cool girly and goth themed card, and this digistamp from SLSLines was just perfect ♥ It does not show up very good it the photos, but it's a very textured card, with acrylic paint dabbed through stencils, bling and silver ribbon, embossed details and heatembossed text. 
I'm totally in love with my new Marianne Designs die! That gorgeous frame, so detailed and cut a perfect result on my watercolor paper.

May all your Dreams come true..


Til Papirplanetens utfordring for September ~ #9. Høsten ~ har jeg valgt å lage et kort i litt vintage høstlige farger og som hovedmotiv ei lita jente fra Mo Manning 'Bye bye girl'. (du finner henne og ugle stemplet her).
Hun ser ut som om hun skal begynne i 1.klassen, og ligner faktisk litt på meg en gang for lenge lenge siden ♥ Vi håper du blir inspirert til å delta! :)
Og har du sett BlogCandyen min? Bonus vinnersjangse for de som bor innom Norden!

http://papirplaneten1.blogspot.no/2016/09/utfordring-9-hsten.htmlDet har vært litt stille både her i bloggen og ellers i livet.. sommern har ikke vært den beste. Vært to dødsfall like etter hverandre nå, først en kjær gammel grandonkel og nå nylig ei venninne.. Så forferdelig trist :( 

Helsemessig begynner ting å bli bedre, og jeg har vært hos hudlege og fått bekreftet at det jeg har vært plaget med i 10-15 år faktisk er psoriasis. Har begyndt lysbehandling 3 ganger i uken på sykehuset + en god steroidsalve og hansker om natten på hendene mine (føles helt tåpelig!), og fant allerede stor forskjell etter et døgn! Bare dumt at det er tilsammen to timers kjøretid for å ta den behandlingen på 1-3 minutter! o.O 
Har hatt mye ryggvondter og er veldig sliten.. og det skal vare enda noen uker til, men hendene har ikke sett så bra ut på flere år som nå, så det er absolutt verdt det! :) 
http://papirplaneten1.blogspot.no/


It's been a little quiet on the blog this summer, best laid plans and all that.. Healthwise it's not been the best, so there's been little creative mojo happening. A kind old grand uncle that's been ill died some weeks ago, and more recently a friend of mine also passed away, totally unforseen, so young with small children.. So so sad ♥ ♥ ♥ 

But I have finally learnt that my achy chapped hands is not only my fibromyalgia acting up, but also a form of psoriasis ~ and after so many years, finally I'm getting some help. UV light treatments and a steroid salve has already made my hands start to look normal! :)


My card today is a DT inspiration for PapirPlaneten, a norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe. The main motif is from Mo Manning and kind of reminds me of myself as a child ♥ This was back in '80-'81 I think. That's my older brother with the cat Missi, our mum, and me on my little tricycle :)

I also have a new pinned BlogCandy up for grabs! Something for every crafter :)

the Traveling Gnome


Om du kjenner meg eller har fulgt bloggen min så vet du jeg er veldig glad i alle ting Fantasy, og det stilige gnom-hovedmotivet er et digistempel fra Fabrika Fantasy, som er en av to flotte sponsorer i den nye utfordringen hos Creative Fingers #114. Vår andre sponsor er Conie Fong ♥ Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og utfordringen vil vare i 4 uker denne gang, så det er god tid til å være med! 
http://www.fabrikafantasy.com/store.php

Hadde helt glemt av å sette dato på noen av bloggpostene jeg hadde klare for sommern, så det har vært veldig stille her i bloggen.. Tilogmed en bloggcandy gikk ikke live når jeg hadde tenkt! Så etter litt endringer så kommer det flere prosjekter fra meg ~ og en mulighet til å vinne en kjempeflott bloggcandy! ♥


For our new challenge at Creative Fingers we are lucky to have two sponsors, Conie Fong and Fabrika Fantasy who gave us lovely digis to work with ♥ 
The fun little gnome from Fabrika is on his way to many fantastic adventures I'm sure, but first he's making an appearance in my art journal :) 
We're on summer schedule still, so it's a four week long challenge, and you are very welcome to join! #114. We always have 'Anything Goes' as a theme :)
 

By the way, it's been very quiet on my blog this summer, and it was not intended! I actually had three posts in drafts, and totally forgot to make them go live.. One which is a fabulous blogcandy too! I will have to change 'em up, and post later on, but soon-ish :)

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/

 

My art journaling spread have gotten a keepsake pocket, and I've made sure everyone knows who's book it is with some dymo-tape. The shiny golden stuff everywhere on my pages is the amazing box with gilding wax you see here on youtube called Inka Gold! I simply LOVE the stuff! ♥ I always use my finger to apply the wax, but not directly from the pot .. or there will be a moldy surprise next time u open it! ;)
The pocket got a little window with an embossed acetate, and above it you can see one of my doodle flower digis. The stenciled tim holtz flower has even more gilding, Indigo Blu flitterglu and Winter Dawn gilding flakes ~ that flew everywhere with a mere breath :)
