Confirmation Easel Card & BlogCandy Winner!

En tid tilbake ble jeg ble spurt om å lage et konfirmasjonskort for en gutt som er glad i biler, ATV, moped ~ ting som sier vrooom! altså :) Jeg spør alltid etter hobbyer og favoritt farger, spesielt når jeg ikke kjenner mottageren. Også om det skal være plass for et gavekort eller penger, og det er det her. Jeg fikk flere foto av gutten fra han var liten, og brukte et baby foto som hoved motiv, etter å ha redigert ut en litt rotete bakgrunn - ikke at de hadde det rotete altså! Nei, det passet bare ikke med stoler og kjøkken innredning liksom.. Fant papirer i blå og bruntoner og stempler som passet. Å bruke deres egne bilder og interesser gir kortet en spesiell betydning, og slår alltid godt an ♥

Om du titter her etter vinneren av bloggcandyen.. så rull litt lengre ned :)

 ~ Good luck or Congratulations/Felicitations on the Confirmation ~


I was asked to make this card for a young boys confirmation day a while back. And whenever I get requests like this, I want to know about special hobbies/interests and favourite colors, and if the card shall have a money/giftcard pocket or not. For example, this boys interests are music and things that go vrooom! Colors were browns and blues. I got several photos of him as a child, wich I printed out on watercolor paper. A baby photo was edited to remove the 'noisy' background, and used as the main image. Using their own images gives it a special meaning for the giver and the recipient ♥

Now.. You were perhaps looking for the Birdy BlogCandy winner? Look no further! The winner is chosen via inlinkz to be #2. ..wich is... 

 Congratulations! ♥ I will send an email to you shortly.
