Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice!

Den nye utfordringsbloggen Anyone for Anya? er oppe og går - og den første oppgaven er altså å lage noe i stil med 'Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice'... Når jeg hører dette er det 'sukkersøt pastell' som ringer i hodet mitt! *lol* Dermed et litt utypisk kort for meg, siden jeg liker mere 'jordfarger og vintage stil'..
...Og siden jeg var så godt i gang, ble det ett til med HouseMouse også! Dette kortet syntes jeg passet til Tuesday Morning Sketches farge utfordring: #8 - lilla, grønn og kraft/mosegrønn... :) Finally it is the first challenge at the new blog Anyone for Anya? And it's a nice one - although not very 'me' in the color-department ... *lol* When I saw the theme - Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice - I immediately thought of sweets & pastel colors!

And I was so in the 'mood' when I was done with my card of Anya for the challenge, that I made one more pastel card. With one of my fave mice - Maxwell!!! This card fits Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge #8 - I think! This is not after a sketch but a color challenge: eggplant, celery & kraft - But I didn't have any kraft left, so I used yucky olive instead! *lol* Stamps/Image: The Greeting Farm - Anya stamps 'Shine'. House Mouse - Feeling Rosy (Maxwell).
Paper: Panduro hobby Scrapboooking Moments - Aqua coll. papers, & some leftover scrap-papers /cardstock.
Embellishments: Flowers unknown. MM brads. My Minds Eye - Tres Jolie - Mademoiselle 'Mother' french borders (stripes + text sticker). The star-stickers are Tatty Teddy. And Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities - Labels 4. Cats-Eye chalk inkpad used was Blue Iris, and the images are colored with DistressInk/H2O/watercolors.


  1. These are both gorgeous. I love the papers and colours you used. Thank you for joining us for our first challenge over at AFA. Hugs, Dawny xxxx

  2. Both cards are wonderful. And please don't misunderstand me, I love Olive Green, but the one that is on my computer isn't so pretty. I love the striped paper - I see Kraft in that.

    Thanks for playing along with Tuesday Morning Sketches.

  3. Oh I love these cards Hilde, especially the 2nd one, but then you know I'm a fan of House Mouse!

    All the best
