I just want to show you some gorgeous cards I found in my mailbox!!
The first one is from the sweet & very generous Jaqueline. I won her blog candy. Just winning was unbeliveble, but you should see the box I got, with lots of fun things. For example there were three stamps there (one Magnolia!! That I did not have from before:)), and lots of papers, ribbons ect.. It was a bug surprise!! But the best surprise was this card!! I know all the work that lays in a homemade card, and this is the cutest... So thank you so much Jaqueline!!
On my DT team for Sarah Kay, there is a sweet & helpful lady by the name of Kathy. And she sent me this gorgeous card!!:) Thank you so much Kathy!!

Big hugs to you both!!!

And before I go on a weekend trip, I just have to mention Lorraine's blog! She is a metall lover;) But her cards are so cute... Now she is soon celebrating her birthday, and is giving away some Candy;)

A Spoon Full of Sugar, Challenge 8

One for the Girls!
For this challenge at"A Spoon Full of Sugar", I made a criss cross card, with the image "Flowers" from Sweet Art Ebony, Sugar Nellie. The swirls from Stempelglede are first stamped with Color Box, Dusty Plum (to make the shades), then with Archival Ink, Plum (the darkest colour). I made the butterfly after a tip from Bibbi. It is easy if you have a Retro Flower punch. Punch out a flower, and take away one of the petals. The text is from Papirloftet.
Til denne utfordringen hos "A Spoon Full of Sugar" lagde jeg et criss cross kort, med motivet "Flowers" fra Sweet Art Ebony, Sugar Nellie. Svirlene fra Stempelglede er først stemplet med Color Box, Dusty Plum (for a lage skygge), så med Archival Ink, Plum (den mørkeste fargen). Sommerfuglen har jeg laget etter et tips fra Bibbi. Det er enkelt om du har en Flower Retro Punch. Trykk ut blomsten, og ta bort et kronblad. Teksten er ifra Papirloftet.
The paper I have used is from Basic Grey, Two Scoops (very berry sundae).

Just another wedding card:)

Jeg så at Lim hadde laget puslespill av motivet sitt, og det ville jeg også prøve:) Brukte Revolution'en min. Kortet ligner ganske mye på et jeg la ut tidligere, men ville bare vise hvor stilig det ble med pusslebrikkene;)
I saw that Lim made a puzzle of her image, and had to try it too:) I used my Revolution. This card is much simular to one I made earlier, but I just wanted to show you how cool it looked with the puzzles;)
Motivet er ifra hÄnglar & stÄnglar. Og bryllupsteksten er ifra Papirloftet. Papir er ifra 3ndy papir. Hjertepynten har jeg kjøpt hos Unik Hobby. Blomstene er ifra Prima. Jeg har fargelagt med Distresser. Når jeg stempler bruker jeg blekket Archival Ink, Jet Black.

Scrappemania: En kortutfordring!:)

Scrappemania har en spennende kortutfordring, ja faktisk midt i blinken for meg!!;)
Her er oppgaven:
"Lag et kort til en du er glad i. Jeg vil se et kort som kan skrives på og sendes, ikke altered, melkekartong, minialbum el.l. I tillegg vil jeg se et fargelagt stempelmotiv. Ta også med noe tekst på kortet, det kan være enten stemplet, håndskrift eller skrevet ut fra data."
Så her er mitt bidrag:
Here is my card for a challenge at Scrappemania. You have to make a card for someone you care about, and also have a coloured image and some text on it! Perfect for me;)
Syntes det var så fint med blått og burgunder, og har fått nydelige papirer fra K&Company og så Sarah Kay stemplene da..!:) Så bare klør i fingrene! Fortsatt Primablomster her også. Tekststempelet jeg har brukt er ifra Stempelglede. Motivet er malt med Distresser. Hvem det er til, er en hemmelighet;)
Litt rufsetråd bak blomstene:) "Hurra for deg som fyller ditt år!" sier teksten.
Når kortet lukkes, kommer disse to blomstene sammen med den ene inni.
