Monster Birthday Party!

 

Fikk første sprøytestikket idag med Pfizer vaksinen! Yay! Kjempevondt i armen, men det er ingenting for snart kan jeg leve et mer normalt liv. Har stort sett ikke vært utenfor huset siden pandemien startet, ettersom jeg har vært nødt å selvisolere pga av diabetes og andre helseplager. Selv om jeg liker å være for meg selv (og ikke er særlig glad i masse mennesker på en gang), så gleder jeg meg til å igjen kunne dra på shopping, spise ute på restaurant, og ha noen over på besøk! ☺️

Disse søte monstrene er favorittmotivet mitt fra Bugaboo stamps, (se tidligere monster kreasjoner her) vår sponsor denne gang hos Creative Fingers #211. DT bidraget mitt er et bursdagskort i knallfarger! Tror jeg var litt inspirert av Monsters inc da jeg valgte fargene LOL 😄

Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være ❤️

~ Happy Birthday ~
 

Yay! I got my first shot of the Pfizer vaccine today & my arm is hurting so much! Happy for the pain though.. Beeing in the risk-group with diabetes and other issues, I am so glad to finally be on track to a more normal life. Having to selfisolate since the pandemic began (I can count on one hand the times I have been into the city... mostly for dentist/doctor appointments) it will be nice to soon be able to go to a store and just browse or sit in a restaurant, and have people over to visit! Luckily I have always been the type of person that enjoy beeing on my own. Just.. not this much! 😉 

Theese adorable mosters are my alltime favourite motif from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps at Creative Fingers! I have used Jodies monsters for many creations through the years as you can see here, and for my DT creation this time I think I was inspired by the Monsters Inc. movie when coloring, very colorful birthday card LOL 😄

For Creative Fingers challenge #211. it is always an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations ❤️

Gnomie Christmas!


For noen dager siden fikk jeg en svær pakke fra USA og Simon Says Stamps med masse spesielle dies/stempler (ikke solgt noen andre steder enn hos dem eller vanskelig å får tak i ellers), bla. denne kjempesøte gnomen ♥ Har hatt lyst på den lengelenge, og da jeg skulle lage mitt DT bidrag så måtte jeg teste den og lagde dermed julekort i juni! Kortene er litt mixed media stil da jeg har gnikket (og splættet) gullvoks på dem.

Creative Fingers #210. er denne gangen sponset av vår DT Angelique med en flott premie! Dermed har vi hatt fritt frem med kreasjonene. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være!  :)

Recently I got a huge package full of goodies all the way from Simon Says Stamps in USA ~ an awesome company btw ~ and finally this little gnome die is mine! So ofcourse I had to try it out, even though its a bit early for christmascards lol :) They're a bit mixed media with gilding flakes, gold wax both rubbed & splattered on them.

 The 'god jul' diecuts are cut out from a piece of cardstock with Viva Decor Inka Gold wax 'Gold' on, wich I also had rubbed on the edges of my cardstock. Then the leftover wax I had on my Tim Holtz Tonic Glass Media Mat was watered down and I flicked on drops of the gold with my Tim Holtz Distress Splatter Brush.
