Vintage with Flowers!

Vintage with Flowers er utfordringen til Simon Says bloggen denne uka - og dette er vel både blomstrende og vintage :) Har lagd flere kort med samme motiv - et av mine favoritt stempler fra Ett Trykk!
Having Vintage with Flowers is this weeks Simon Says challenge. I've used one of my fave stamps from Norsk Stempelblad - Ett Trykk, and vintage - in my idea - is aged and brown, with gorgeous prima flowers! :)

Stamps/Image: Ett Trykk Dameansikt stempler - 7B (woman & 'en kvinne' text). Cornish Heritage Farms - Distressed Circles Scrapblock 6x6. Magnolia - BakgrundsSwirl Bröllup. Lazar StudioWERX Inc - Polaroid frame stamp. North Star Stamps - Gratulasjons tekster. Ett Trykk - Clearstamps tekst07.
Paper: Misc cardstock & kraft papers, and the last card have Basic Grey DP.
Embellishments: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Curved Rectangles S5006. QK Jacks RS-0519. QK Heart (swirl) RS-0003. Prima - Artful collage flower. Basic Grey brads. Butterfly & clear dots stickers from 'Nille'. I've used Ranger Vintage Ink pads (retired dye ink pads with aromatherapy scents!) - Season greetings, apple cinnamon & pumpkin pie. I've also used lots & lots of cats eye chalks as well to get that 'vintage' look.

winnie the pooh bear!

Fant denne utfordrings bloggen - Cute Bears Challenge - for alle oss som elsker bamser i alle variasjoner!! :) Denne uken er det #5 - lilla + en teddy.
Jeg hadde et printet ole brum bilde liggende, men lilla var vel heller smått i scrapperiene, så det ble et nokså enkelt kort.

I put this text inside the card > Loosely translates to:
Piglet went closer to Pooh. "Pooh!" he whispered. "Yes, Piglet?" "Nothing", said Piglet and took his paw. "I just wanted to make sure you were really here.."

Just found this sweet challenge blog: Cute Bears Challenge, and with a pooh bear pic printed out and somehow finding some lilac in my stuff, I came up with this card for the challenge of the week #5 - Lilac :)

Main Image/Stamps: Winnie the pooh bear & Sentiment (inside) written in word, printed out on cardstock. Text stamp "Koz" is from Kreativ Hobby.
Papers used: Bazzill, Love papers from Your crafts beautiful. And from BAM POP! volume 2 coll. papers: a speach-bubble cut out.
Embellishments: QK - buttons RS-0139, wich I've glazed with Ranger's Glossy accents.

My Thailand vacation!

What a beautiful country Thailand is! And the people there are so very kind and generous :) We stayed at the house my brother has in Hua Hin, and we had a wonderful time - the heat was a little too much, but next time we go we'll choose a better time of the year! Up to +36 degrees celsius was WAY more than I am used to.. *lol* Here at home we have a cool -13 celsius... A real shock to the system when we went home! :)

My mum at the night-market. My niece in the neighbours swimmingpool. And my brothers house.

View of Hua Hin from Khao Takiap - the 'monkey-mountain'. We got to feed the monkeys! And a pic of me in the rainforest, on a trip to Pa La-U waterfalls.
Warm greetings to our new friends we've met on the trip! Kurt & Monica from Sweden, and Lorna from Scotland :)
Please send me an email Lorna - I've misplaced your email addy somehow! Hugs from Hilde & Vigdis.
