Happiness is... Autumn colours!

Disse kortene har jommen tatt meg lang tid å lage.. Startet sist i september og først nå har jeg følt meg bra nok til å gjøre de ferdig! Men de ble jo fine da ♥ Har slitt litt mye med helsa i det siste.. Er plaget med kroniske ryggsmerter pluss pluss, så mye vondter er normalen for meg, men for et par uker siden fikk jeg et skikkelig hekseskudd ~ mens jeg hadde et migreneanfall! Snakk om uflaks! Gjorde antagelig en dum vridning av ryggen som jeg ikke skulle gjort.. Tok lang tid før jeg var tilbake til normalen, så det har blitt mye tv titting og netflix :)
Dermed har det har vært litt stille her på bloggen, og ikke mye kommentering rundt om.. Skal prøve og komme ovenpå med det igjen, men imellomtiden har jeg en flott bloggcandy gående som alle kan være med på og prøve å vinne! :) utfordring #22. ~ Oktober mnd. har 'Halloween og/eller Høstfarger' som tema :) Da jeg lagde mine to inspirasjons kort, hentet jeg farger og inspirasjon fra bildet her > Jeg syns at høsten er den årstiden med de aller fineste fargene ♥

Du kan finne linker nederst i bloggposten til flere av stemplene og dies jeg har brukt. Vi håper du føler deg inspirert til å delta med dine kreasjoner hos oss!

So I started theese cards late september and only got around to finishing them today.. a new record? ;) I've been struggling with my bad health lately, worse than usual. I have written before about having chronic backpains, but those daily pains is nothing compared to lumbago? not sure what is the exact term for the crick I got in my back, wich is very suitable called a 'witch's shot' here in Norway ;) It came on me like a PANG while I had a migraine, so it was very unlucky, I probably made a wrong turn or something in all my hazyness :P Lasted for a couple of weeks, so I haven't been able to do much of anything.. I've binge-watched alot of netflix though *lol* So the blog has been quiet because of it, not beeing able to craft, and I'm sadly behind on commenting.. I'll try and get on top of things again! Meanwhile, hope you'll go check out the fab blogcandy I have going on ♥

My cards are DT inspiration for the October challenge at PapirPlaneten, a norwegian challengeblog and craft shoppe. Our theme is Halloween and/or Fall colours. You are more than welcome to join with your creations, but the main prize is only shipped within Norway ♥

'a tiny greeting for you'

up posters n such on walls? Roll a little ball and 
press it on the nozzle to keep it from 
clogging and drying up! :)
