HOPE for a better tomorrow.. 🌤️

“You may say I’m a dreamer.. but I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us... And the world will live as one.”
—John Lennon.

Deltok på scrappetreff arrangert av Bikuben forrige helg! Rakk ikke å lage så mye, og var til slutt ganske så knekt i ryggen og hendene, men oi så moro det er med en gjeng koselige damer som scrapper 'sammen', masse demoer og inspirasjon! 😀 Håper helsa er bedre neste gang det er onlinetreff i mars neste år!

Da jeg lagde et 'Håp' bilde til moren min forrige måned, så tok jeg vare på alle de bittesmå diecuts bitene i diesen og har jeg har lagd ett nytt 'Hope' med 'inlay' teknikken til dette kortet. Den aller beste til å lære bort den teknikken er Jennifer McGuire som du kan finne her på youtube!

Kortet mitt er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #239. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema. Jeg er sponsor denne gangen og gir bort tre av mine digistempel som premie! Velkommen skal du være 💗


I was at an online scrap crop event last weekend arranged by Bikuben, an norwegian crafty store. Didn't manage to create much, and by the end I was totally knackered in my back and hands, but OH how much FUN those events are! Lots of friendly ladies getting crafty 'together', demos and inspiration flowing, getting the old mojo a much needed kickstart. 😀 I just hope that my health is better on the next online event held in march next year.

When I made that 'Hope' decoration piece for my mum last month wich u can find in this blogpost here, I saved all the tiny pieces from the diecut word. For this card I used them to make a new word with the fun puzzle 'inlay' tecnique! The very best way to find more about that technique is checking out the many videos on Jennifer McGuires youtube channel!

My card is DT inspiration for Creative Fingers #239., and as always it is an 'Anything goes theme'. You are more than welcome to join with your creations. I am sponsoring with three of my digistamps as a prize this time!
