Party Kittens!


For noen uker siden fikk jeg godstolen min tilbake fra reparasjon ~ endelig! Har savnet den i mange måneder, en god stund før jul knakk den sammen og trengte sveising under setet. Arvet stolen fra bestemor da hun døde i '94, og den må være av ekstremt bra kvalitet siden den har vart så lenge uten å gå istykker!  Moren min sier at bestemor fikk den helt tidlig på åttitallet!
Er kjempeglad å få den tilbake, men har ikke hatt så mye mulighet til å glede meg over det ettersom helsa uansett har vært laber..  og så har jeg mista litt scrappelysten... Håper 'mojoen' kommer snart tilbake! Stolen er iallefall på plassen sin, så får vi se om det blir noe scrapping i påska! :)

Kortet mitt idag er DT inspirasjon for utfordring #205. hos Creative Fingers. Vi blir sponset av vår egen DT Angelique, med et flott metall blomst sett! Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ♥

I got my good old craft chair back from repair some weeks ago, but haven't been in best health of late so I still haven't gotten into the 'groove' yet. It tends to be like that when you're not been able to craft for a long period ~ need to get my mojo back! At least my grandmas chair is in my room waiting for me now :) 

It's actually amazing it only broke down for the first time around christmas last year ~ after beeing used several times each week for more than 30 years! My mum says that grandma got the chair in the early 80's! Thats quality for ya! Don't make them like that anymore thats for sure ♥ I had to take a photo to show you the wonder chair lol :)


On this card I've used one of my oldest wood-mounted rubberstamps ~ I have so many of them that really needs to be used more! Absolutely LOVE theese fun  party cats :)

My card is DT inspiration for our challenge #205. at Creative Fingers, and we're sponsored by our own DT Angelique this time with some gorgeous metal flowers. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

♥ God Påske ~ Happy Easter ♥

Keep on Swimming ~ Reveal Wheel Cards


 

Har vært litt stille her på bloggen... Helsa og energien til å lage ting har vært helt på bunn... Men nå har jeg fått hjem 'bestemorsstolen' min (god ergonomisk arbeidstol arvet fra ho bestemor) og etter scrappetreffet jeg var på forrige helg har mojoen kommet tilbake føler jeg! Det var online selvfølgelig, i regi av Scrappesyken på FB. Så moro!

Kortene mine idag er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #204. 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 :)

http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/

 


I added this snippet on youtube of the reveal wheel effect :)

 

 
So its been quiet around here... my health and mojo have been very low, but with getting my 'grandma-chair' (inherited ergonomic chair) back from repair, and a bunch of new extremely fun dies, I feel up to making again. In fact last weekend I made several cards and some ATC's during an online craft-event with 50+ other norwegian crafters. Those creations I'll be putting in another blogpost soon :)

Theese Keep on Swimming cards were SO much fun to create, with the interactive die set called 'Reveal wheel' from Lawn Fawn. 

They are my DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #204. at Creative Fingers, and 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 ♥..

As you like it ~ Favourite way to cut an image & Why:
Fussycutting ~ because it is relaxing to just sit n cut, u have control over how much or how little of the white edge shows ~ and also because I prefer to use my money on other stuff than co-ordinating dies - except for special kinds of dies that is interactive or that comes in handy for the set. [March 24th.]
TIME OUT #183. ~ Different: doing interactive cards is kinda differerent from what I normally would do, and the aquariums. They're not something I would have at all. Looks cute on a card though!

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 ♥
