... and there is life in the old blog yet :)

Good morning Friday.

Yes, I know I have now been posting (nor crafting) for a few weeks but things have been mayhem here in the run up to christmas. We have had a lovely time and my daughter has her very own toyshop (yes, she did get that many presents from relatives and her daddy lol). I received a few new stamps and discovered that I didn't have any Kling-On lol - how totally fustrating is that!
My car decided to have an extended holiday when the head-casket went a week before christmas so that will cost a fair bit to get sorted :(.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings - I have to get the bus into town for a few bits for tonight's low-key celebrations so better just show you this card I managed to make for the MOJO sketch challenge. I have used a lovely image from A Day for Daisies called "Mum's Hat" - isn't she sweet. She has been coloured with Promarkers. I made the little heart myself as I thought they were a perfect embellishment.


Image: A Day for Daisies "Mum's Hat"
Papers: Bo Bunny "Tweetheart"
Stamps: Hero Arts (sentiment) and Crafty Individuals (hearts)
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink "Vintage Photo"

Just to finish I wanna wish everyone a happy and joyfilled New Year with dreams and wishes coming true. Hugs, Mette

Another Christmas Card

Good morning Friday.

Phew, the snow and ice is finally starting to melt. Has been bad here for almost 2 weeks now but I can get my car out again and get back to normal - until the next batch of snow.
You would think that I would have had lots of time to craft but NO - been busy getting the house ready for christmas and had lots of washing to do (still not finished).

Wanna show you this card I made the other day and yes, it's another christmas card hehe. I have used a lovely stamp I got from my local craft shop last weekend. She's by Marianne design and is called "Snoesjes" - not sure what it means tho lol. Coloured her with promarkers and used some papers from PAPER STUDIO. The ribbon is from stash and the tiny, self-adhesive pearls from JAC's with the Sentiment from TLC. I will enter this card into the following challenges

- Sketch
A Spoonful of sugar - Christmas Card
Stamp with Sarah Kay - Christmas Card
Color Throwdown - Red, chocolate, pear green

Thank you for dropping by and have a lovely day, Mette

Ol Fashion Christmas

Good morning Sunday.

Just quickly a post from me - got lots to do today.

This is a card I made for Wild Orchid Challenge "Old Fashioned Christmas" and I hope this qualify. I used one of H & S gorgeous images and coloured her with Promarkers. The Papers are from Craft Creations and the flower is made from Prima and Wild Orchis flowers. The leaves are handmade.

Thank you for dropping by and have a blessed day, Hugs Mette

Guest DT post for Quixotic

Just a real quickie from me this morning as my life is chaos. I am almost snowed in and the kids have been home since Tuesday so there has not been a lot of time for crafting. I have been trying to dig out my car but no success and the heavy snow falling from the roof has ripped some of my cuttering down :(. As I live in a tiny village on a hill with just a small store I have to rely on the bus to do shopping - it passes thru here once an hour.

Anyway onto my card which I made for Quixotic using some of the gorgeous stuff available from my favorite Alladin's Cave. Elaine sells everything you need to make stunning creations and if you lack a little inspiration she has a fantastic DT. Here I have used Virginia ...... again, I love her. The papers are Jovial by Basic Grey and the embellishments are from stash. I drew with a golden pen around all the corners for a little glitz, the hearts made by me.

I might be back later with another card if I survive my 1 hour trip into Derby on the bus and back again, so cross your fingers.

Thank you for dropping by and have a safe day, Mette
