Dilly Bean Friday Challenge

Oh dear me!
This has not been a good week - rushing around, forgetting things and being really late. Not sure what's going on but it's 5 AM in the morning now and I just can't sleep. Gonna be so tired later on today. Maybe this was playing in the back of my mind.

This is my late post for Dilly Bean Friday Challenge. Fall Colours is the theme for this week - don't you just love fall colours. Must be my favorite time of year. 

Why not head over to the Dilly Bean Challenge blog and check out the fabulous DT teams creations. So much inspiration and then play along with us. Remember that you do not have to use a Dilly Bean image but we would love to see what you would create. And even better, Megan has just added some new fall images to the shop HERE.

My little creation is a thank you card...

and I have used Emily framed - Papermania cardstock - Jillibean Soup papers. twine - button - Dili En Espanol sentiment stamp

Thank you for visiting my little place and hope you have a great week-end. Hugs, Mette

Toot toot

Good morning ladies.

Today I would like to share a card I made as a guest over at  The Digi Bells blog. I am really enjoying working with Elisabeth Bell's images and am re-discovering "old" favorites that I have in my ever expanding stamp collection lol. 

I do think that Elisabeth draws the most exquisite little boys and for my card today I am using this sweet image. It's called Toot toot and is available HERE. It so reminds me of the time when I used to lie on the floor with my boys playing trains :).

I have used some of my Papermania card-stock, MME Abbey Road papers but basically kept the card CAS. I think this image deserves center stage :).

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

Witch Doll 1

Good morning all.

Well, it's been one of those week-ends you just wanna forget. Phoebe had a little cold on Thursday/Friday but over the week-end it got worse. She's had high temperature and it went on her chest, resulting in her breathing getting really bad. Thank goodness for the inhalator and Ventolin. Seems to be better now but keeping her home today as she was boiling hot last night.

Did manage to get a little crafting done and tried something new. I always seem to be making cards and thought I would try something a little different this time. I made a little gift bag by following the instructions HERE.

Pretty nifty, right?! ............

Materials used: Witch Doll 1 from Birdie Brown - Kraft card-stock - scrap of paper - Inkadinkado "Halloween/Harvest assortment stamp - Ranger Ink in broken china, spiced marmalade and vintage photo - Ribbon

Lil Bird

Good afternoon all.

Whoa - my second post today. I promise I am feeling just fine hehe.

Sometimes my Mojo seems to be a long time before kicking in when I craft and then other times a card just comes together like magic. I have had both happening to me in the last 24 hours and I swear I prefer the ones that just happens like magic. The other project never ends up right, no matter how much you work on it. Or so I have found. ("Mojo still in bed" project will be posted soon)

This is my "happened like magic" card and I just love this lil dude......

Lucy's broken doll

Good morning all.

Yah, my bathroom is done and the builders have left, leaving a lot of dust and dirty floors lol. Time to clean it out and then put in some new decorative items. I am not a bath person - prefer showers but I still like my bathroom to look nice.

Still having to have Phoebe home - school policy to keep kids home after a nasty tummy bug so they don't spread the gem. Doesn't always work that way as the bug is going rampant thro our tiny school.

Perfect Pear

Good afternoon all.

Today I have Phoebe home. She felt a little sick this morning and didn't want any breakfast, only took a few bites of her toast which came up again. So she will be staying at home tomorrow too. There is a tummy-bug going around in school so she has properly caught that :(.

My bathroom is being finished today too :) - oh yes, the end is near. All I need now are a few new things, mainly shelves for storage. Then I can get around to cleaning all the dust and dirt away.

Today's little creation .....

........ featuring Perfect Pear by Birdie Brown and available HERE. Papermania card-stock and scraps of paper.
This is a free image but the artist has other fabulous images HERE. Totally love these images.

Spit Happens

Good morning all.

Well, on Saturday I waved goodbye to my son at the train station. He has now gone back to Sheffield to start his second year and taken most of his belongings with him. I do miss him a lot but it's nice to get some normality back :). Phoebe has her bedroom back - yes, Ben put's his stuff in there (tiny house) and it's now clean and very girly again.

I am still not doing any cleaning downstairs apart from the daily tidy up as I still have builders in to do my bathroom - phew, the mess. So waiting till they have done by the end of tomorrow to get busy downstairs. But I will have a lovely looking bathroom :).

Today's card .....

Morning all.

I do believe my mojo is still on holiday. Or maybe I just haven't gotten back into the swing of things yet and am hoping that next week will give me more energy and find my mojo again.

Talking of holidays, I am one of those persons who just have to take lots and lots of photos and our trip home to Denmark was no exception. Lots of piccies from days out, family gatherings and food. Most of these stars my daughter who is 6. So what better way for her to celebrate and remember everyone than to make her a little album with lots of room for her photos and she can then write her own stories and how she enjoyed herself.

Today's project is for my GDT period with the lovely and talented ladies over at The Digi Bells DT blog. It's definately worth visiting as there is so much wonderful inspiration and of course it features the adorable digi images by Elisabeth Bell, available HERE.

For my album I have used the super cute image Click! - perfect for Phoebe's photo-album. I used my Abbey Road papers (I hate cutting into papers lol), a tag and envelope from Manilla and lots of Phoebe's little stickers - well, it is her album after all, and K & Co. rub-on words.

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

Afternoon crafters

Oh my Gosh I am really late today. Been one of those says where you are running around like a headless chicken in circle and everything seems to go wrong. First had to go shopping this morning (my pet-hate), then arrived home to find the electrician was here (didn't expect him till Tuesday next week as the plasterer isn't done), had to redo my washing :( (seriously need a remedy for making towels WHITE again) and have been helping Ben making an attempt of gathering all his belongings. So the chicken (not the same as above :P) is late in the oven and my post is late.

Anyho, it's Friday and that means a brand new challenge at Dilly Bean Friday challenge. This week we want you to share your OWLS :). I love owls.

Angel fluffy cloud

Good morning all.

Things back to normal??? - definately not in my house. Still got chaos even though Phoebe and now James have gone back to school. Ben is still here with his stuff all over the house so difficult to get sorted and cleaned. He is going back to Sheffield on Saturday (insert sad face) and taking his belongings with him (insert happy face). I have builders in re-doing my bathroom (they were supposed to do it while we were on holiday) but I am hoping that I can start cleaning and tidying start of next week.

Went into Derby yesterday with the boys. Both needed new school gear - backpack, pens, folders, paper etc. And today Ben is going to Alton Towers (Amusement Park) with his GF so for the first time in 8-10 weeks I am here on my own (apart from the builder). Bliss hehe.

Today's card ...........

......featuring Angel Fluffy Clouds from Make it Crafty. Isn't she/he adorable?! I have used Papermania card-stock and kraft paper. A scrap of pattern paper, buttons and an old star stamp. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions

Catch of the Day

Good morning all.

Well, I am finally back home again. Had a wonderful time seeing family and friends again and just didn't want to come back home.

Been really busy getting sorted today - unpacking, shopping (yes, the fridge was empty), washing and getting everyone ready for school next week. But I did manage to squeeze in a little crafting time when Phoebe went to a party earlier.

My post today is for The Digi Bells DT blog. Well, who doesn't love Elisabeth Bell's cute little characters - there are just so many to choose from. I must say that I come from a fishing town on the West Coast of Denmark but I can honestly say that they never caught anything as cute as this ......
