Welcome! ~ Velkommen!
Here, in my little corner of bloglandia, is my blog about my crafts. Until recentley I've blogged about my card making. Now, in 2011, I'll try to do different things also, such as sewing (patchwork), knitting, crochet, baking, along with some card making...

Sukker # 50 ~ Sugar #50

Click to enlarge

It's a sketch challenge this week over at Sukkersött bloggen / The Sugar Sweet blog.
I've fallen in love with the Wild Sprout stamps from The Greeting Farm, so I had to do one more card with one of these sweeties. Colored with my Prismacolor pencils, and once again a cool circle tag by Catslife Press.

I decided to do some hand stitching on this card, used Scrapper's Floss, but it didn't turn very well... Smiley from millan.net So, I just made it look even more shabby by distressing the edges of the mid section. I think I'll use a regular sort of thread next time I decide to do some sewing on a card.

I got to use these fun Robin's Nest Tear Drops for the first time, they're really shiny little things!
(These are called Sunflower Seeds, quite suitable on a card with a cute little Wild Sprout!) Smiley from millan.net

Friday Sketchers # 67

A new fun sketch at Friday Sketchers this week! I used the cutie pie Megan from The Greeting Farm, colored her with Prismacolor pencils. Got to use some favorite things on this card; a cool circle tag stamp from Catslife Press, Nestabilities dies, MS butterfly punch, Kaisercraft pearls, Rock Fern and Daisy punches from EK Success, heart charm, and Stickles (on her bow).
I'll write the name and the age on the tag when I decide who to give the card to.

Thanks for stopping by! To show how much I love my bloggin' friends, I'll soon have a great blog candy on my blog!

SFTW Challenge #12 ~ Taylor

It's the first time I enter a card to the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge blog, this week it's a color challenge, pink and grey, a lovely combo!
I 've been urging to use this fabulous Taylor stamp from the Hearts and Hugs Collection Series #2 by Victoria Case for SCACD for days now, she's just the cutest cowgirl in town!

Colored her with Prismacolor pencils, added a flower, paper embellies and brads. Tried to make it look like the horse charm is fastened with a rope... The sentiment is computer generated, font is Oklahoma.

Cute Card Thursday #74 ~ Summer

A card for the Cute Card Thursday blog. This week the challenge is to make a summery card.
These Hope & Grace images from The Greeting Farm are just so stinkin' cute, added butterflies and flowers, and then it was finished. Quite a simple and easy card, I know...

TIOT # 33 ~ Notebook

A fun new challenge for SCACD's DT, make a notepad or a notebook cover. I chose to do the second one, a cover. I'll be giving this as a small gift to a friend. She got a puppy a few months ago, so this totally adorable stamp, Jami from the Hearts and Hugs Collection Series #2 by Victoria Case for SCACD, is just perfect for this project!
Colored as ususal with my Prismacolor pencils, used retro flower punches, QuicKutz swirls, Petaloo Mulberry flowers and brads.

On the company blog Follow Your Heart you can see all the wonderful projects by the rest of the DT ladies!
