Be your Beautiful self 💗


 
Kortet mitt ble noe forsinket.. vært i dårlig form i det siste... og gjorde så mange tullete feil når jeg endelig startet på kortet! Men det ble et veldig pent kort tilslutt da 😊

Jeg har brukt et blomstermotiv fra 'Flower Fun Colouring Pages' på mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #242. som denne gang er sponset av vår DT Anne Constantly-Carding! Hun selger digitale kits / ark pakker gjennom CraftsUPrint, og gir bort tre flotte digikits som premie. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være! 💗

This card was a bit delayed.. my health have been bad lately, well more than my 'normal' crappy health anyways.. And when i finally got to crafting, i messed up multiple times ~ attached the image the wrong way on the cardfront, making a splat on the image, ripping off some of the lacy diecut.. Was able to cover everything up, but it was a struggle for sure! Very happy with the result tho 😊

My card is DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #242. at Creative Fingers and has a floral motif from the '
Flower Fun Colouring Pages' by our sponsor (who is also one of my fellow DT's) Anne Constantly-Carding! She's selling beautiful digital kits & paperpacks through CraftsUPrint, and three of the kits that the DT's has showcased this time will be the prize! As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations 💗

Balance & Tranquility 🌻


 
Som mitt DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #240., har jeg lagd to tags (eller bokmerker som jeg oftest bruker tags som), med et nydelig solsikke stempel fra vår sponsor Conie Fong Art & Design. Solsikker har alltid vært favorittblomsten min, men jeg verdsetter den enda mer nå som et symbol for fred og støtte til det Ukrainske folk 💛🌻💙
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være 😊

As my DT creation at Creative Fingers #240., I've made two tags (or bookmarks as I usually use them as), with a gorgeous sunflower stamp from our sponsor Conie Fong Art & Design. Sunflowers has always been my favourite flower, but I have come to value it even more so now as a symbol of Peace and solidarity with the people of Ukraine 💛🌻💙
As always we have an Anything goes theme, and you are more than welcome to join our challengeblog with your creations 😊

HOPE for a better tomorrow.. 🌤️


“You may say I’m a dreamer.. but I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us... And the world will live as one.”
—John Lennon.

 
Deltok på scrappetreff arrangert av Bikuben forrige helg! Rakk ikke å lage så mye, og var til slutt ganske så knekt i ryggen og hendene, men oi så moro det er med en gjeng koselige damer som scrapper 'sammen', masse demoer og inspirasjon! 😀 Håper helsa er bedre neste gang det er onlinetreff i mars neste år!

Da jeg lagde et 'Håp' bilde til moren min forrige måned, så tok jeg vare på alle de bittesmå diecuts bitene i diesen og har jeg har lagd ett nytt 'Hope' med 'inlay' teknikken til dette kortet. Den aller beste til å lære bort den teknikken er Jennifer McGuire som du kan finne her på youtube!

Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #239. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Jeg er sponsor denne gangen og gir bort tre av mine digistempel som premie! Velkommen skal du være 💗

I was at an online scrap crop event last weekend arranged by Bikuben, an norwegian crafty store. Didn't manage to create much, and by the end I was totally knackered in my back and hands, but OH how much FUN those events are! Lots of friendly ladies getting crafty 'together', demos and inspiration flowing, getting the old mojo a much needed kickstart. 😀 I just hope that my health is better on the next online event held in march next year.

When I made that 'Hope' decoration piece for my mum last month wich u can find in this blogpost here, I saved all the tiny pieces from the diecut word. For this card I used them to make a new word with the fun puzzle 'inlay' tecnique! The very best way to find more about that technique is checking out the many videos on Jennifer McGuires youtube channel!

My card is DT inspiration for Creative Fingers #239., and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations. I am sponsoring with three of my digistamps as a prize this time!

Usually I just tape ribbons down on the card but this was a very sheer see through ribbon. So instead I made a cut into the edge of the card and pulled my ribbon through to hide the adhered ends behind washi tape :)
