On another note - the craft fair didn't happen for me this time, wich I'm a little bummed about, especially since the fee was paid already.. But i talked it over with my family on friday, and we didn't want to take any chances since a fair is a big crowd. Probably 2-300 people, and the swine-flu has grown the last couple of weeks here. My nephew has had to stay with us until his vaccine kicked in, 'cause his family have it. And earlier today we heard my uncle might have it too! Since me and my mum haven't gotten the vaccine, don't want any either - though there are riskfactors - we just try to be careful not to get exposed :)

Here is a card I made some time ago but haven't gotten around to putting in my blog. My favourite little guy from Doodle Factory! :)

Paper: Bazzill Misc cardstock.
Embellishments: The frame, made with misc scrap paper and a puzzlepiece-puncher?, is bought on a forum from another scrapper :)

Jeg har litt smånerver for tiden - og lager kort på spreng, fordi det bare er en uke til jeg skal på Håndtverksdagene på Melbu (Hadsel), 14. og 15 November - og jeg skal ha en liten salgbod der med kortene mine ++ litt papirhobby småtterier :) Blir kjempespennende! Og første gangen jeg har sittet på 'utstilling', vært mest familie og venner, og venners venner som har kjøpt kortene mine til nå..
Håper bare jeg har lagd opp nok til da. Det var jo meningen at jeg skulle bruke disse mnd. etter sommeren til det, men så ble jo pappa syk og ble lite tid til hobby.. Og med begravelsen og greier.. så det ble først nå at jeg har fått opp produksjonen. Heldigvis har jeg en masse kort og ting som ikke er solgt, så det går nok fint *krysser fingrer* :)

Pappa ville elsket å få dette kortet - han likte Fantomet, Tarzan og Supermann, og når jeg var liten så var han jo min SuperPappa :)

Utfordringen hos Cute Card Thursday #85. denne gang, er å bruke primærfargene: Rød, blå og Gul. Det er ganske sterke farger og ikke så ofte jeg bruker dem - går jo mest i myke jordfarger, vintage-type kort, men primærfarger passer kjempegodt til gutte-kort eller til menn har jeg funnet ut!

A little exited theese days, and nervous 'cause I'm going to have a stand with my cards n stuff, at Melbu Crafts Christmas-Fair on the 14th & 15th of November. This will be my first try at such an event so wish me good luck! :)

Cute Card Thursdays challenge this time is #85. Primary Colours: Red, Blue & Yellow. Not the typical colors I like using, but perfect for a boy or male-type card :) And in light of fathersday, this is one for all the dads...
As a kid my dad was SuperDad, - very strong and he wrestled with crocodiles to save mum (very good with the tall tales my dad *lol*), and he loved reading the cartoon 'the Phantom', and I remember watching the Superman-movies with him when I was little - So he would have loved getting this! :)

Stamps/Image: Eat Cake Graphics 'Mr.Billingsworth' (The 'S' on his chest is drawn on). Kreativ Hobby ticket stamp 'Journaling linjer' (handwritten txt= 'Superdad'). And I also used a Magnolia stamp 'flames' under the superman-image.
Paper: Cherry Arte 'Arcade - Alien invasion'. From the BAM POP! volume 2 coll. a frame + yellow paper. The red dotted paper is from Panduro Design.
Embellishments: The image pops out with 3D-squares, wich doesn't show in the scan.

Stampotique Baby Cakes!

Stampotique har mange kjempestilige stempler - litt spesielle, goth inspirerte og merkelige stempler.. Dette er ikke goth, men den furtne minen på 'Baby Cakes' er ikke vanlig å finne på vanlige stempler - og passet så utrolig bra til denne teksten. Angrer litt på at jeg solgte det, mulig jeg må kjøpe det på nytt ;)

Utfordringen hos
Charisma Cardz #43 - Ingen bakgrunns papirer - så her er det motivet i fokus.
The Challenge #43 at Charisma Cardz is - No Backing Papers, so here the image is in focus, and I do love this cutie stamp! Stampotique has the coolest goth inspired stamps - and I have two more girls, this one I've sold - wich I kinda regret now...
I may have to buy it again!

Riley the moose cards

Jeg kommer til å legge ut flere kort over de neste ukene som jeg har laget for en tid siden, men ikke har fått tid til å blogge :) Her er et par kort laget med litt til-overs-papir-biter, med motiv fra Hanna Stamps - en herlig liten elg som heter Riley!I haven't had much time to go online during the last months, but i've been crafting some - so there will be lots of cards popping up on my blog from now on :)

Here is another Riley card - he's a cute little character isn't he? The shop u can get him at is Hanna Stamps! I've gotten tons of new stamps, and i can't wait to try them all out, now that I have lots of time to play :)

Stamps/Image: Hanna Stamps - Riley the moose - Coffee riley. Text stamp from Kreativ Hobby.
Paper: Leftover scrap-papers, Basic grey & Sassafraslass, and cardstock.
Embellishments: My Minds Eye - Tres Jolie - Ooh la la 'Sunshine' french borders (flowers sticker). I've colored the stamp-motifs with LePlume pens this time.

In memory of my dad :)

My dad died last month, after beeing sick for some weeks, and it's been a sad time for all in the family. Because of the altzheimers, he didn't reckognize us anymore - not even knowing who he himself was or where he was, but he knew us as someone who cared for him and that he was surrounded by warmth all the time, up until the end. The pages above is from the front and back of the pamphlet for the funeral, with psalms inside. It's much more personal to make it oneself rather than having the funeral-bureau do it, - Like with the front and the berries he always used to fill up the freezer with in the early days.. And the back with the mountains and scenery as of Lofoten where he grew up. And I wrote a poem in memory of him, in wich I mention that we will remember him as he once was - before he got ill and forgot most things, - when he was as strong as the mountaingoat, a real 'king of the forest'.. And that he now is as 'free as the birds' from one of his favourite songs, but that we'll always miss him... ♥

PS: The pamphlet was created in word and paint, and the backgrounds is from different sets of gorgeous recycled letterpaper made by the company Hippopotamus.
