A card and an ATC

Firstly I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. Hope it will be filled with happiness and some wishes come true.
I have managed to make 1 card. It's my daughter's 4th birthday on the 19th January and I made her a sweet pinky card following the sketch at Mojo. I do love the sketches there - they are usually easy but so effective. I have used this super image by TGF - isn't she adorable????

Papers: Summertime Designs
Flower: Prima
Colouring: Water colours

Next I would like to show an ATC which I made for the Crazy Amigo challenge - snowman. I have used this super digital image by the talented Michelle Perkett - please visit her PCP group - she's such a lovely lady. I love this snowman - he really does make me smile.

Colouring: Water-colours and glitter glue

Thank you all for visiting me in 2009 and I hope we all rise to new challenges in 2010. Mette

ATC Swappers January 2010

Omg - finally managed to do some crafting!!!!

I hope you all had a magical christmas. Mine was lovely but in between dressing my daughter in all her new dressing up clothes (princesses are definately IN), mediating between my teenage sons, cooking, cleaning, visiting etc there hasn't been a lot of time for crafting. And I got a heat gun which I still haven't been able to try out lol.

I did manage to make these cute ATCs and I am definately early with them for a change. ATC Swappers January theme is tearing and I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I used up a lot of tiny scraps which we all have and tor them into strips, attached them to the ATC. I then added this super fish from High Hopes (I think his name is Herbert).


Stamp: Herbert by High Hopes

Paper: Stash

Colouring: Water-colours

Thank you all for looking and hope you have a lovely day, Mette

A few ATCs

Just a quick note from me today. As most of you I am busy getting ready for christmas but have manages to participate in a few challenges this week and you may also know that I absolutely love making ATCs. So without further addo.......

1. Think Monday, think ATC

This week's challenge was children's Books and I used to love Peter Pan. These days however, it seems Tinkerbell is the new star (my daughter loves princesses hehe). It almost seems as if "the boy who didn't wanna grow up" has been forgotten.

The theme is Christmas (how appropriate lol) and for me red is the ultimate christmas colour. And what better image than this charming Santa from Crafty Individuals.

Another christmas theme. I choose a simple christmas tree for this ATC. The paper is stained and the red berries have been coated with crackle.
Well, this is all from me at the moment. it has been snowing outside so my little princess will be so excited when she wakes up (she's nearly 4). My mum tells me they have had over 1/2 m snow in Denmark - I really wish I was heading home for christmas but as long as my kids are having the best time then I'll be happy.
Thank you for popping by and have a lovely day, Mette

A few cards

Sorry it has been a while since I last posted here but life has been a little hectic. Typical for this time of year really but as already stated my PC went down and thenn I have had a bad flu and not felt I wanted to do any crafting. On top of that I am (like so many of you) getting ready for christmas although I don't get stressed. If something is not done or bought it's not the end of the world lol.

The first card I wanna share is for 2 challenges. No. 1 Sketchycolors where the theme is a colour combo blue/green and no 2. mojo monday 117. I love their sketches and I had been asked to make a card for a man. Now he is into keeping fit and motorbikes but unfortunately I didn't have a suitable image so I found this little fellor. Cute, isn't he?? lol. He was sent to me by a friend in the states.

Sentiment: G-studio
Paper: stash
Colouring: watercolours

This next card is for Kort-o-mania challenge. Their theme was angels and we all love those. I didn't really want to use a stamp for this and in my stash I found this lovely angel printed onto vellum. Isn't she adorable. I found her at my local craft shop along with other little gems. I know it's a little difficult to see but I mounted her onto some silver card.

Image: from local craft shop
Paper: please don't ask lol
Flower: a kind gift from a lovely friend
Riboons and gems from stash
My last card is for the challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie. Their theme this week is "Sparkle, baby". I used this super image - and I adore these. She is coloured with watercolours. It is a little difficult to see again, but her skirt is covered in glitterglue and she has gold buttons. The super snowflakes and the ribbons were sent to me by friends.
Stamp: Kraftin' Kimmie "Clara" and sentiment by Elzybells
Papers: erm - do not remember
Ribbon and flakes from friends
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with some ATCs which I have made for weekly challenges.
Thank you for popping by and I hope you have a lovely day, Mette

Just a quick note to let you know that I am still here.
What is your definition of torture??? Well, I would have to say


Never mind the spanish inquisition. They can tear out my nails 1 by 1, stretch my in different directions and deprive me of food but 1 whole week without my computer is sheer torture.
Luckily I got it back now so I will be back blogging again soon

In the meantime, stay happy, Mette

Sketchycolour challenge 1

There is a new challenge blog out in Bloggerland - Sketchy colors. It has been started by some very talented scandinavian ladies but don't worry - they write in english too. I believe it will be sketch and colours challenges - each alternate.
I thought I would like to play along and the first challenge is "Purple". I love that colour and since my son's girlfriend is 17 soon I though I would make her a little card using my new Drucilla stamp. Isn't she just FAB. I absolutely adore these stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie. I am pretty sure this card couldn't be any more purple even if I tried. I just hope the girlfriend likes it :).

Stamp: Drucilla by Kraftin' Kimmie
Papers: from my huge stash
Flowers: Prima
Colouring: Prisma Pencils

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

Quixotic challenge 4

Just a card for now but will come back later as I got 2 ATCs to post again.
This card is for the forth challenge over by Quixotic which was tearing. I love tearing paper - sometimes you need a straight line, other times I just like to see where the tear goes lol.
For this card I used bright colours - my favorite, I can't get enough of citrus colours and I used this super image by Diane Duda (love her). I haven't quit worked out why she's shaken the frog lol.

Stamp: Shaken not kissed by Diane Duda @ Sugar Nellie
DP: erm - can't remember
Flower: prima
Colouring: Prisma pencils

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