Southern Girls and "Santa Lucia"!

Hi friends!

Just a little note: as you can see on my blog header im having some huge problems. Al PDF files looks like this. I have downloaded some PDF thingy, but it only works for printing? I havent had this problem before, but after my computer crasched nothing is like it used to be.
So, now im asking you al, what am i doing wrong or, what should i do? please help me out!!!.
I want my blog to look good everytime you come by. 
Its like knowing your having guests coming by and you dont cleane your house before they arrive,lol.
I do need help, desperatly!


Anyways...We are having our final challange for the year over at Southern girls , and the theeme is..Celebreate!
We will be back bigger and better(if thats possible,lol) next year.
The 1st challange for 2012 will go up Januari 5th, so plenty of time to play along in this Celebreate challange.

Here is my card...


Im celebreating christmas...
And i was also thinking about gingerbreads, thats what tilda is holding, a row of gingerbread hearts that she has baked,lol.

The dps i have used is from echo park called "times and season", they are wonderful. I just love the colors of the papers.


I also decorated the inside this time, but i forgot to take pics, so typical!
But inside i made a little pocket for that tag that you can see in this pic.
I just distressed the tag and then i put on a wellum sentiment that says warmest holiday wisches.

Its so funny, cause i was going thru my winter / christmas stasch and had no ide i had a whole block filled with beautiful wellum sentiments. Its a little like a mini christmas when you find stuff you didnt even know you had, isnt it?lol.


A close up of Tilda holding her baked gingerbread hearts.



Flowers...

Now im gonna show you some pics of my little cutiepie. We were celebreating Lucia here in Sweden on Tuesday, and i got some requests off showin some pics from her 1st lucia celebration at daycare.
so...here you are...mummys little cutiepie...


Here we are on our way to daycare...

Finally at daycare. Melinda is on top but not sure what im doing, looks like im about to go to sleep,lol.
It was hubby who had the camera, and well...do i have to say more?
Every pic is blurry or he didnt take enough pics,grrr




Come on!!! Lets sing togheter, "Sankta Luciaaaaa....!LOL.



Finally at home. In grandmums lap eating the hugest chokolate santa clause, mmmmm...

and can i tell you that she went to bed really late that night, talk about sugar rusch, she was like a little speedy gonzalez running around,lol.
Well, we had a really lovely day, and a lot of..hmmm..some good pics to remember our princesses 1st Lucia celebreation at daycare.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Today we have the last challange for this year up and running over at Bunny zoes,
and this month our lovely Dorcas would love to see your fancy folds/ shaped cards.

heres my little fancy folds card...


I made a little easel card with this cute little bear image called "a christmas delivery" from stampavie.

I tryed to make it look like he was driving his car deep in the snowy forrest, hurrying home to the family with the gorgeous christmas tree he found in the woods, and al the wonderful christmas presents he bought down in the valley,lol.
Can you picture it?


I think its really hard to get a good pic from easels, dont you?
So, im sorry if the pics are a little... blah!

It would also be great to have some light.
But right know we are living in darkness here in Sweden. 
Its not that bad, cause it can be really cousy too, with tons and tons of burning candles.
But those candels are no good for picture taking,lol.


A little close up of the images. 
i also fuzzy cut some fab tree images from make it crafty.

Other things i have used on my card is..

Papers: My Minds Eye

Im soo excited to see what you al will create.
Remember that the challange will go on until the second monday in Januari,
so lots of time.
We dont want you to feel any stress in this christmas time, do we?


Thank you so much to al of you for stopping by today!

I strongly recommend you to pop by.
There will be a whole lot of inspiration,tips, tutorials, projects and a whole lot of eyecandy every single day!!:)

So...
Are you al starting to get in to the christmas spirit now?
Only about two weeks left, and i havent even started my christmas shopping yet,yikes.

But thats ok, maybe ill end up doing al my christmas presents myself, lol.
At least that is what the teatchers over at my babygirls daycare are getting tomorrow, a home made gift.

Since i think its so much FUN to do al kinds of boxes and things, and i also love to alter them, thats what i did.

So here is a little box that i pimped up...


I also wanted to do a matching candle.

It will be nice for them when they are on a brake, sipping their warm coffe, to light a little candle.
Especially after beeing out in the cold with the kids a half day.


I also wanted them to have something cute to look at so i chosed little Tilda.




Heres the box from above...

I wanted you to see the sparkly and beautiful flower.

Here we have them both, the altered box and the candle...


I really had so much FUN making theese, and im so excited about tomorrow.
Will my daughters daycare teatchers like them?
at least i know they will like one thing...
I filled the box with lots of chockolate!

I hope you had FUN, and that i gave you some inspiration?

Have a wonderful day, and dont forget to have FUN! lol!

Big hugs and happy holidays!

I distressed al the edges and added some white lace and a little heart doily.
