Good Morning again.
Back to normal, busy days again now.

As it is Wednesday it's time for a new challenge over at

I've used the image Simply Santa, coloured with ProMarkers, and made a rather CAS christmas card for this weeks challenge.

Christmas Notebook


Hello again, friends and followers.
Suddenly I got the house all to myself as the rest of the family went fishing. There's still more than an hour to NCIS starts, so I thought I'd have some happy time in my work room :)

Tonight I'll show you a little christmas note book that I made. Well - I made the cover to put a store bought notebook in... Quite handy when preparing for christmas.
I used Bazzill Kraft Cardstock, and DPs from Maja Design, some twine, a label holder and a couple of brads to keep it in place. All papers are inked with DistressInk WalnutStain.
The border on the picture panel is made with a Martha Stewart Punch.
Here it is:

Wednesday means a new challenge over at

I got myself the Envelope Punch Board, and had to try it immediately. Searching the internet I found lots of fun stuff made with it. One of the things were a Gift card, and I decided to make one for the new challenge over at I ❤️ ProMarkers. It was great fun - and easy! You can find a tutorial for the gift card here.
My birthday card is kept in violet/ pink tones, suitable for a little girl, as is the image Kiki with Cupcake from Little Miss Muffet.
Of course the image is coloured with ProMarkers.

When you open the card a gift card holder slides out:

Vintage Confirmation

Confirmation - this time of year again. And this year I had a confirmand myself.
May 15th was my daughter, Heddas, confirmation.

I love making card for confirmations, especially girls confirmations.
I've tried to make this in a vintage, shabby-like style. I've used laces, frantage, cheesecloth, seambindingribbon, a flower and a ribbon with printed confirmation text. I mounted the image on to a panel made with a die I think is from Spellbinders.
As base for the card I used Bazzill Kraft cardstock, finished size is 4"X6".


The inside is folded to make pocket for a gift card (or money) inside:

Inspired by a Song or Film @ I ❤️ ProMarkers


Good Morning, Everyone!
After some rather busy weeks I'm back in my craft room - I've of course been in my craft room, but haven't had much time for blogging. We've celebrated my daughters confirmation. A wonderful day, but I'm sure glad this was the last celebration of this kind!

Today I have a DT-entry for the new challenge over at
I ❤️ ProMarkers

This week’s theme is Inspired By A Song Or Film
Our sponsors are Col Art (Letraset)

and our second sponsor is Digital Delights (loobyloo)

I have made a Birthdaycard for a boy for this challenge, using the supercute image Karate Kevin from Digital Delights - Of course the inspiration here is the film Karate Kid.
This time quite a CAS card, somehow I felt that was the right thing for this image...
