Happy Holidays! 🎄

God Jul! 🎄 Denne helgen har jeg vært litt på etterskudd, hatt null energi og dagene har flydd så fort forbi... og med alle bloggpostene på Creative Fingers har jeg helt glemt av min egen! lol 😊

Om du bruker å delta på utfordringene våre hos Creative Fingers, så tar vi en pause og den nåværende utfordringen #245. varer til over nyttår, 4 uker istedenfor de vanlige to. Vi har vår årlige bloggpost idag med julekort fra designteamet, og vi la også ut en super Bloggcandy igår!

I fredagens blogpost hos Creative Fingers takket vi alle våre flotte sponsorer gjennom 2022. Mitt kort er en spesiell takk til vår DT Anne Constantly-Carding som har sponset oss så generøst med flotte digitale kits fra CraftsUPrint, som det jeg har brukt på kortet her ~ Blooming Mystery Watercolor, Blue Set. 💗


Happy holidays this Christmas weekend! 🎄 The days has just flown by way too fast, my energy is still on low and I've totally forgot about my own blogppost with all the posts i made over at the Creative Fingers blog lol 😊

If you love participating in the blog challenges at the Creative Fingers Blog, you may have noticed the DT's are taking a holiday break. The current challenge #245. will last four weeks instead of two, until past new years.

We have our annual inspirational christmas blogpost today on the 25th. as well as an awesome blogcandy posted yesterday and on friday we the CF Design Team sent a thank you to all our wonderful sponsors throughout 2022!
(including myself!) My card is thanking our dear DT Anne, who generously sponsors beautiful digital kits at Creative Fingers, like the one that i have used on my card ~ Blooming Mystery Watercolor, Blue Set. 💗

Floral Beauty ~ Fairy Cards 💗

Er fremdeles i ganske dårlig form... og stod over forrige utfordring (med meg selv som sponsor tilogmed!), men jeg har DT inspirasjon for denne! Litt forsinka med å blogge kortene da, men men.. se litt lengre ned for #spoonie #spoonieproblems 😊

Jeg har brukt blandt annet et digikit kalt 'Floral Beauty' på mine to DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #244. som denne gang er sponset av vår DT Anne Constantly-Carding! Hun selger digitale kits / ark pakker gjennom CraftsUPrint, og gir bort tre flotte digikits som premie. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være! 💗


I'm still in pretty bad shape.. had to sit out the last Creative Fingers challenge (and i was even the sponsor for it), but i have two cards as DT inspiration for the current one ~ a couple days late with my blogpost though, but i do what i am able to, and try not to stress over what i can't.. 😊

There are only so many spoons in a day.. and theese days i am running to quickly out of them.. And if u are confused about my use of the word 'spoons', look up spoon theory, its a term for us 'spoonies' with chronic illnesses
💗 There's a good article here at Happiful or listen to the person who came up with the term herself, Christine Miserandino on this youtube video. #spoonie #spoonieproblems.

My DT cards for this fortnights challenge #244. at Creative Fingers wich is sponsored by Anne Constantly-Carding!
(who is also one of my fellow DT's) She's selling beautiful digital kits & paperpacks through CraftsUPrint, and three of the kits that the DT's has showcased this time will be the prize!
I have used the wonderful 'Floral Beauty Patterned paper pack' as well as other kits mentioned in the info section below. As always it is an 'Anything goes theme', and you are more than welcome to join with your creations 💗
