Thinking of you...

Dette stempeltrykket er et eksempel på at man kan fikse på feil man gjør! Det var kommet en grønn malings flekk i hennes gyldne blonde hår - og dermed var jeg på tur til å kaste det - men isteden fikk hun ravnsvart hår :) For å se hvordan det egentlig skulle sett ut, ett tidligere kort med dette trykket..
Kombinerer 3 utfordringer til dette kortet Crazy Challenge #61. Blomster, Craft Your Passion #52. Fritt tema, og Creative Insp. #106. Bruke punchere og/eller dies.

This stampmotif was actually on it's way to the bin when I ruined it with a big green spot on her golden brown hair!!! Instead I made her hair big, fluffy, and BLACK - covers everything! ;) Here's an earlier card 2 show how it should've looked like!
I enter it in: The Crazy Challenge #61. Just add Flowers, Craft Your Passion #52. Anything Goes!, og Creative Inspirations #106. Use punches &/or Dies.

Clean & Simple Easter Card

StampARTic's utfordring er Påske kort med GULT + 1 annen farge som skal dominere. Grønt og gult er vel passe 'påskete'? Har ikke peiling på hvor mesteparten av stæsjet mitt er nedpakket - så jeg får kjøre en litt enkel stil en stund! :)
The April challenge at StampARTic is to make a Easter card where the main color are YELLOW + one color of your choice. Green & yellow looks pretty 'eastery' to me!

Stamps/Image: Image cut from a florist Paperbox card. Text 'God Påske' = Happy Easter stamp from hÄnglar & stÄnglar.
Paper: Bazzill Cardstock. Unknown retro paper.
Embellishments: Spellbinder Frameabilities - Cherry Pickin' SBS5-021. Unknown red rubons. Me & My BIG ideas 'Flower' rhinestone. Yellow bling also from Pierres du Rhin Dollarama 'China'.

Finally.. here I am again! :)

*Brushing off the dust* ... *lol* :)
WOW - has it really been such a long time since my last blogpost?! It didn't feel that long! I moved to a new apartment in november, actually the entire move took up most of october, november and december - and now we're well into the new year, and still not done getting a whole lifes accumulated stuff in it's place - or throwed away.. wich is the hard part!
I've always had a collectors heart - never throwing memorabilias away, so my new attic has been filled up - my brothers joking that I need a pillar in the livingroom so I won't get the contents of the attic in my head one day...

The christmas holidays came and I had a wonderful visit from one of my oldest best friends Annette - a jolly good time with a Dr.Who marathon .. and tons of good food - so now it's back to dieting - again! ;)
My cherished tomcat Tamlin had to be put to sleep, he was sick & it broke my heart, he's been my companion for 14 years so he will be missed! I get all choked up just writing about it.. ♥

And I STILL haven't gotten my scraproom in order.. I got hooked up with internet around newyears, but haven't felt like blogging since I haven't been scrappin' anything new - wich is difficult to do when I haven't a clue to where anything is, all boxed up and stowed away...

Looking forward till springtime - then my scraproom will get all my attention! It's outdoors kindof, a storage shed 2x2 meters big, and connected to the house. But it's gotten new panels on the walls and roof, and laminated floortiles(?). And when my youngest brother Kevin - the electrician in the family finally has the time, he'll fix it up with lightfixtures and electricity in there. Then the fun can begin! Decorating and creating the perfect scraproom :)

Until then though I have been able to dig up my vintage ink pads and aquarelle paints, and a bunch of stamped motifs - so I am painting until I can get scrappin' again! BUT - in the meantime, I think I have some stuff to give away soonish - my birthday is coming up, and to say sorry for neglecting my bloggerfriends for so long - I'll be having a blogcandy! Sounds good? :)
