Man's Best Friend!


 

Godt Nyttår! Har fremdeles ikke fått reparert godstolen min, så det har vært lite tid på scrapperommet, og begrenset hvor mye blogging jeg gjør, og når jeg lager noe tar det ekstra lang tid.. så derfor har det vært litt stille herfra ♥ Gleder meg så masse til den kommer, har mange morsomme prosjekter planlagt!

Penny Black har noen av de absolutt søteste dyrestemplene som fins! Har kjempemange gamle gummistempler og clearstampsett som jeg burde bruke mere! Kortet mitt idag er DT inspirasjon for årets første utfordring hos Creative Fingers #199.

Vi blir sponset av vår egen DT Angelique, med et flott clearstamps-sett! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ♥

Happy New Year! I still haven't gotten my good chair back from repair for my craftroom, so it's been a bit quiet from me. Don't spend long time in the craftroom at a time, so making a card takes me such a long long time it's exchausting to create... Looking forward to getting in the groove again!

Penny Black has some of the most adorable animalstamps out there, and I have so many of them, both old rubbers and clearstamp sets that needs to be used more :) My card is DT inspiration for the first challenge of the year #199. at Creative Fingers.

We're sponsored by our own DT Angelique this time with a gorgeous clearstamp set. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

Magic Iris Cards!

 

Har enda ingen god stol til scrapperommet, og har ikke kunnet lage noe på kjempelenge... men jeg hadde heldigvis disse to jeg ikke har blogget enda :) Lagde dem med en 'magisk' åpne/lukke mekanisme dies for en tid tilbake. Penny Black kortet har ikke blitt vist frem online før, (Gorjuss kortet var til Scrappesykens onlinetreff i midten av oktober) så det er min DT inspirasjon denne gang for Creative Fingers #198.

Lucky Troll Christmas card!

 

Vært lenge siden siste bloggpost nå fra meg, har ikke vært så mye scrapping etter at 'bestemorstolen' min (arvet en ergonomisk arbeidsstol fra ho bestemor) fikk en knekk i rammen under setet og må sveises! Broren min tok den med seg for reparering for noen uker siden og imellomtiden har jeg bare en stol som ikke er bra for ryggen min :( Har lett etter noe lignende men finner ingen som er like god å sitte på, bortsett fra et par som koster like mye som en pent brukt bil! .. Så jeg håper på at gostolen min kan fikses ♥

Husker dere lykketrollene vi 'alle' hadde på 70 og 80-tallet? Det sukkersøte lykketroll motivet er fra Bugaboo Stamps som er vår flotte sponsor denne gang hos Creative Fingers #197. Vi har som alltid et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema på vår utfordringblogg og alle er velkommen til å delta :)


http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/

 

 

It's been quite a while since my previous blogpost, as there has not been much scraptime for me since my 'grandma-chair' (inherited from my grandma an ergonomic workchair) broke in the frame under the seat and has to get welded. My brother took it away to be repaired some weeks ago and meanwhile I only have a really bad for my back chair to use :( Been searching for something as good to buy, but found nothing aside from a few thats as expensive as a small used car! .. So I'm hoping my good chair will be able to get fixed ♥


The supersweet troll motif from Bugaboo I used on my DT card I have had for a long time now and been wanting to use for a fun christmas card. Finally colored her up! She reminds me of those cute lucky troll dolls we had back in the 70s-80s! Did you have one? Mine had crazy rainbowcolored hair and was attached to my school backpack. Thinking I need to make a rainbowcolored troll non-christmas card sometime too! :)

Nostalgia Mermaid


Er litt på etterskudd med kortet mitt på grunn av en langvarig migrene, og bildene ble tatt litt slurvete så jeg fikk ikke helt frem at det er utrolig mye shimmer i fargene! Prøv og se for deg at den gulfargete bakgrunnen egentlig er gull, og det er shimmer i alt 😊 Kortet er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #195., og det nydelige motivet er fra vår sponsor Ching-Chou Kuik

Jeg har brukt et gummistempel fra Sweet Pea Stamps som ikke eksisterer lengre, men man kan kjøpe det som digistempel fra etsy shoppen hennes her! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ❤️

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/


 

I'm a day behind with my DT card for this fortnights challenge #195. at Creative Fingers, as I've had a longlasting migraine.. My photos were a bit off too, so just imagine that the yellow actually is a bright shiny gold and everything is all shimmery 😊

The gorgeous motif is from our sponsor Ching-Chou Kuik. I used a rubberstamp called 'Nostalgia' from the discontinued CCK collection at Sweet Pea Stamps, but it is now available in her digistore on etsy as part of a collection of four images, wich you can find here! As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ❤️ ...
