Dandelion Fairy

Christine Karron er vår fantastiske sponsor denne utfordringen hos Creative Fingers #152., og som mitt DT bidrag har jeg lagd et kort med et av hennes motiver, som passet perfekt inn i en av mine favoritt dies som et vindu ♥ 
Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være :)

Dette er faktisk det første jeg har lagd i mitt nye scrapperom! Vi flyttet nylig, (se bilder i forrige bloggpost her) derfor har det vært veldig stille her i bloggen. Det er helt utrolig hvor mye ting og tang jeg hadde samlet på.. selv om jeg har fått en større leilighet enn det jeg hadde før, så har jeg store problemer med å finne plass til det jeg pakker ut! Skjønner det bare ikke.. Tror jeg trenger å kvitte meg med noen greier ~ men bare litt ;)


I'm a few days late with my DT card this time, and I'm sorry to say I have a lot of catching up to do with commenting and groups, as life has been very hectic lately with the move and health stuff... hopefully it calms down soon!

This is for the reminder post challenge #152. over at Creative Fingers is showcasing this gorgeous digistamp from our new sponsor Christine Karron
She is generously giving away an amazing prize pack of 5 coloringpages for the challenge winner! This fairy is in one of the packs offered :)
As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ♥

This is actually the first craft creation in my new scraproom! We moved recently (I showed photos of the new house in the last blogpost here), so it has been quiet on the blog for a long while. Because of my bad health, I had help from my family with the packing up and moving, and I love them for that ~ but everything is all mixed up now, have zero ideas as to where half the stuff I need is, or if it still exist ;) 

This is the 'first edition' of my scraproom, wich is nowhere near finished!
Well, no scraproom is ever truly completed, but you know the point where you feel comfy in it? Not there quite yet, but well on the way! Finally able to have my laptop there, and I got the table setup just as I have dreamed of for years! The middle shelves part can be shoved out, so that someone can sit on the opposite side. I'm very lucky my youngest brother is very handy, I just tell him to saw here and screw n hammer there, put some shelves there and move stuff to where I want it .. think I've worn him out! ♥  Must think up something nice to make him as a thank you :)

It's amazing how much stuff one accumulates.. Even if the new apartment is much bigger than my previous, I have big problems finding space for the things I unpack! I need to seriously downsize...

By the way ~ I watched the movie Downsizing (w. Matt Damon) just yesterday...  could've needed some of that shrinking technology right about now! LOL :)
