Espresso yourself!


 

Jeg begyndte ikke å drikke kaffe før jeg var godt over tredve, og enda foretrekker jeg pepsi max før kaffe ~ bortsett fra når jeg får en god kopp med noe 'ekstra' oppi.. som caffe latte! karamell & fløte, eller en iskaffe latte *nam* 💗

Kaffe Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #193., med et flott motiv fra vår sponsor Jan's Digi Stamps. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

A coffe themed card all in monochrome browns, cream and a touch of gold! My favourite colors 😍 I was actually never a coffee lover until in my mid thirties,  (I've always preferred my Pepsi Max) when I tasted a caffe latte for the first time! Only when I get a cup of coffee with something extra added, like cream n caramel though, don't like the bitter plain coffee taste... My favourite is iced caffe latte! 💗

My DT card for this fortnights challenge #193. at Creative Fingers has a lovely coffee motif from our sponsor Jan's Digi Stamps. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations 💗

Just keep swimming.. & blogcandy winners!

 

Såe... beklager at det har vært så stille på bloggen min, har slitt litt ekstra med helsa i det siste og ikke klart å sitte på scrapperommet (eller 'sitte' ned i det hele tatt..) og hendene har vært så oppsprukket at hver minste bevegelse har vært smertefullt, ganske sannsynlig forverret psoriasisen pga all håndvaskingen de siste mnd.. 🙁

Har ikke vært noen steder siden mars eller hatt noen andre enn familie på besøk, så jeg er såå glad for å ha netflix og alle andre strømmetjenestene ~ og youtube har vært min beste venn! Mange som live-strømmer og jeg ser både på mixed media, kortlagere, matkanaler, gamere og ikke minst humor ~ en god latter er det man trenger nå! 😄 Du finner lenker til 'noen' av favorittene mine litt lengre ned!

Creative Fingers #191., er sponset igjen av vår DT Angelique, med ikke bare en men to flotte premier ♥ Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Velkommen skal du være 😊 Utfordringen vil vare i 4 uker siden vi har sommerferie på designteamet.

..om du titter innom for å se hvem som vant min forrige blogcandy, så rull litt lengre ned! 👍


http://creativefingerschallengeblog.blogspot.no/



I'm sorry to not have been present much lately, my health has been worse than usual, and I haven't been able to sit down and craft (or sit down at all really..), and my hands psoriasis has been really cracked and sore ~ probably due to all the extra washing.. 🙁 

My DT card(s) today took me several days to make beacause of those darn aches, and I am sorry it's so late (supposed to be up last friday), but I got to make two cards at the same time though, as all the supplies were already on the table!

Creative Fingers #191., is sponsored by our own DT Angelique again, with not just one but two lovely prizes! As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations 😊 The challenge is lasting 4 weeks, as we are still on summer schedule.

 

 

I have not been anywhere since march, or had anyone but family over to visit, so I'm starting to get a bit antsy! Soo happy to have netflix and all the other streaming apps, & youtube have been my best friend with all the live streams and all the mixed media, card craft, gaming & foodie contents ~ and a happy dose of humour! Some good laughs we all need now ~ Go check out some of my fave  channels for some inspiration & comedic relief 😄 

Here just a few: Crafters Jennifer McGuire, K Werner, Tim Holtz (+on FB watch) Dede Willingham, Finnabair, Keren Tamir, Patti Tolley Parrish, Kelly Latevola, Sandy Allnock, Maremi SmallArts, Koren Wiskman, Scrapbooking Made Simple. Nintendo switch gamer BeatEmUps. Foodies Jamie Oliver, Barry Lewis, Delish, Akis Petretzikis & chili challenger: First We Feast! I happen to loooove hot food, I hot sauces like Sriracha & Tabasco on everything, and carolina reaper chili powder for special occasions! 🌶️ Just for fun/standups Graham Norton Show, Michael McIntyre, Sarah Millican, Russell Howard, Comedy Central Drunk History, Good Mythical Morning. At Qi, Today I Found Out & Kurzgesagt you'll learn some amazing facts, and for some cuteness overload: Kittisaurus! Simon's Cat!

Gorjuss ~ Mini Summer BlogCandy!


 
Did someone say there was another blogcandy this weekend? ... oh yes that was me! Here it is ~ just a mini RAK this time, to celebrate my Blogaversary wich is just around the corner 🎈 😊 🎉

Have a wonderful Summer 😎
Stay safe, bee happy, enjoy crafting!



The contents of this mini blogcandy:

💠 Gorjuss clear stamp set from Santoro 'Hang me up to dry'.
PS: this was a duplicate I had ~ and I am sure I have stamped with one of them, but either this is brand new, or I have cleaned it so well I cannot tell wich one is new or used! So what I'm saying is that it might be used, but its not noticeable ;)
💠 two ribbons ~ one dotted and one with gorjuss girls on!
💠 Gorjuss deco sheets 'night light'.
💠 ... and a cute tag/bookmark I made a few years ago ~ Bee Happy
I have a box full of tags that I really need to pass on, so all blogcandies will get one from now on!




This BlogCandy is open to all you wonderful crafty people who stop by my blog ~ I will ship worldwide ~ and while I would appreciate it if you were a follower of my blog, it's not necessary to win ♥ But please ~ ONE entry each & NO Non-crafters or Candy only bloggers, that would not be fair!

The only thing I ask of you is that you spread the word by mentioning this candy with a link to my blog, feel free to use the blogcandy photo, (or the small one in my sidebar) either on your own blog (sidebar is fine) or other, like a pin, instagram, facebook, twitter etc.

And here is a BONUS chance to win: When there is 10, 20 and 30+ entries ~ I will pick up to three more winners who will get a freebie digistamp (of their choice) from my etsy shoppe! So get the word out 😊


  

The candy will end on July 30th. at 23:55/11:55 PM.
norwegian time ~ see my sidebar clock.
♥ 🎈 Good Luck! 🎈 ♥
