Every now and then I think about getting a new job, but then I met a kid who makes me sure I am at the right spot. Teaching children is wonderful! So you see I love making cards for other teachers to make them feel special but also cards to kids going back to school....

This is one of them...
 Been practicing colouring blonds. Don´t know what I think about the result. What do you think?
This little cutie is a digital stamp from Di Digital. I think she is so cute....
Have coloured with ProMarkers and Faber Castell pencils. A great mix of different papers from my stash corner. Great to actually use them...

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Today is the start of a brand new  Challenges at Brown Sugar Challenges!

The theme this week is WEDDINGS

Our Sponsor this challenge is  
 QKR Stampede
Here is what I created for the challenge...

I had so much fun creating this card. I used white cardstock and patterned papers from Maja Design. These papers are my newest and I love them! 

 I used one of the sponsored digis (the rose frame) and coloured it with my ProMarkers and Faber Castell pencils. Think that moss green and pale pink is my new favorites at the moment. I also put some stickles on the roses.

I used a white rose ribbon under the image and also glued some black and white twine in loops. 

Used an old sticker of two people in the middle, think they are Glitz. Also used my Martha Stewart punch and let some butterflies swirl.

Also splashed with some black glimmer mist and put a few pink rhinestones at the corners.
Hope you like it!

My DT creation for Digi Darla

I have actually made a layout to this weeks challenge over at Digi Darla. I haven´t given myself time to make any layouts for ages and I have missed it. So from now on I have decided to try to pick it up again and make more layouts. 

This weeks challenge at Digi Darla fitted a layout great, the theme is
 Anything Goes with a twist - you have to use a digital stamp, a bow and butterflies.
And if you want to challenge yourself a bit more - twist something on your project, twist your papers, embellishments, hey, even your ribbon! Have fun and get creative! 

I decided to give myself a bit of help with this layout and used a great sketch from Veckans Skiss
 and it looked like this:

And this is what my layout looks like:

 I am so happy with it! I used some gorgeous papers from Maja Design. I "framed" the with paper with one of them. Then used a pretty pink page to back the photo. I splashed with black Glimmer mist on the white paper and used an edge scraper on everything. Everything I used are bought at my local scrap shop called Scrapbutiken.

 I used this fun digi from Digi Darla. It´s called Number 1 Ribbon and you can find it here!

 Some butterflies! Used one of my favourite Martha Stewart punches . I also used one of her other punches to do the little twigs. Some beautiful black lace.

 A black bow made with some black zig zag ribbon. I love this photo of my little B and her Piglet. He does make a great friend.

 I also draw with a black pen around the white cardstock and with a white pen around the pink paper.

I also found this fun challenge at 613 Avenue Creat. It´s called Create your own challenge. You have to pick 1-3 things from each colomn.

I also want to enter this project to following challenges:
Veckans skiss #34
13 Avenue Create #34 - Create your own challenge (1: image, patterned paper 2: any sketch, paper punch 3: glimmer mist 4: flowers and 5: lace)

 I used one of the digis we got sponsored with from Kenny K. She is called Phoebe I actually thinks she look a bit like me! I used a lot of bright colours that make me happy. Strangely enough have orange and grey become some of my favourite colours. Me who use to be a black and turquoise girl.....  The two old pen nibbs are another deco that I love. Some corners, stickers and a button.

 I coloured with my ProMarkers and some Faber Castell pencils.

 I have machine stitched around the flower patterned paper and also on the top and bottom of the calender. 
 I used a belt holder from an old pair of jeans. I also cut out a bit and put it underneath my letters.

Do the wave - it´s Monday!

I loooove Mondays because it means it´s time for a new challenge at Digi Darla. It´s me who picked the theme this week and I hope you´ll like it. It´s actually my Mum´s  Birthday today so the theme pick was easy, it had to be Birthday Celebration.

My Mum is a mad cat collector and loves red so with this in mind I sat of to make her a Birthday card. I used a super sweet digi called Cat In Pajamas and you can find it here!

 I like this black velvet frame and flowers from my local scrap shop called Scrapbutiken. Also ribon, pearls and the grey paper come from the same shop. I have coloured this sweet image with my ProMarkers and some Faber Castell pencils. Made the pants stripy using a white gel pen.  I put a banner at the top to make it feel a bit more like a birthday card and also used a bit of cheese cloth. The sentiment GRATTIS means Congratulations and we use that in Swedish on our Birthdays.

Fins, Feathers or Fur

It´s time for my second time to set a challenge theme over at Digi Darlas Challenge Blog. This week I picked Fins, Feathers or Fur. You can do anything you want as long as we see one of these elements on the card. If you want to challenge yourself even more? Try to use two of these options or a image of a cat in a fish bowl...

I used two different stamps from Digi Darla this week. You can find them here and here! They are called Cat in Wine glass and Wine bottle. I coloured them with ProMarkers and Faber Castell pencils, as I do most of the time....

 I doodle a bit around the card with a black pen and joined it to a word I wrote, it says Cheers!
Kept the card very simple, patterned paper, a journaling tag, two pieces of washi tape and some dew drops.

Please pop over to Digi Darla and play along with us! My team mates has made some amazing Fin, Feather and Fur cards for you!
