Good Morning from me.

I have combined my DT entry with the celebration of mothers day, which is on Sunday here in Norway.
I have made a giftbag, for my mothers gift (even in the same colors as the gift inside):

I managed a "full board" on the gift bag.

I've also used a little Glitterstickles on the flower and some charms. The paperbag and the DPs have gotten some strokes with the white Gesso.

Anything Goes @ I ❤️ ProMarkers





Good Morning to you all,
I'm sorry I'm a bit late with my DT entry for this fortnights challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

It's busy days, although I have a few days off from work - last night I made fish cakes (finished very late), now I'm baking bread and knitting woolen socks (my son is engaged in fishing this winter, and fishermen need real woolen stockings, I'm told...)


Well, back to the challenge
The theme for this fortnight is 
Anything Goes     

Our sponsor is  Dr Digi's House Of Stamps
Their Prize is 2 digi image of winner’s choice.
How you interpret this is completely up to you, as long as you make sure you follow the theme and you must use either ProMarkers, FlexMarkers, AquaMarkers or Trias on your work, if not you entry will be deleted.

I couldn't resist to use two of the stamps the DT got from Dr. Digi's House Of Stamps, so for this challenge I have two cards to show you :)
The first one is a christmas pocket card.
To not bore you with too much reading I'll just show you pictures of the card:










My second card is a birthday card in a kind of retro style
(a few years ago my daughter found a picture of a cassette and said I've seen these things in grandma's attic - LOL)
Doesn't the papers just fit perfect to the image??? I even managed to mirror the image before printing...
Enough talk! Pictures:

Vintage/ Retro @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning to you all
As this post goes live I'm on my way for a little christmas shopping. Just a couple of days in the city for some last presents and a little more exciting christmas candies and food than what the one shop at the island has - and of course I plan to visit my favorite shop in Bodø; Trel...

But first, it's Wednesday and time for a new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This challenge will be the last this year, and has the theme
Vintage/ Retro

and our sponsor is

I got the image Little Hazel, and made a christmas card with it.
The image is colored with ProMarkers, for the icy details I used lily white glitter from Doodlebug design. DPs are from Authentique "Cozy" collection.
The paper edges are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
To decorate the card I used cheesecloth, laces, seambindinribbon, several snowflake-dies, a snowflake charm, white poinsettias and a drinking straw. The stamped texts are from Kort & Godt.

Winter @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning to you all on this first Wednesday in December. Still no snow at Røst, which is very normal , but every year I hope and wish for a little snow just for the christmas...
Well, Wednesday means day for a new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This weeks theme is
Winter

and our sponsor for the challenge is

Prize will be 2 dies, 2 stamps or one of each


My card for this challenge is a winterly Joy Fold christmas card.
I had to use this lovely Santa Edwin from Magnolia - of course colored with ProMarkers - around it I sprinkled on Frantage Chunky White to give an illusion of falling snow.
Around the image I put on lots of white christmas trees (Magnolia DooHickeys)
Underneath the image I tucked some cheesecloth, lace and a pompom ribbon.
DPs are from Papirdesign.
Textstamps inside the card are from Papirdesign and Staz
Finally I attached a red bow with two white bells.
