hi Friends!

Not feeling too good this morning. Actually feeling kinda terrible.
This weekend has been so tough. A few very bad and sad things come to my attention, witch has made me feel so sad phsycically and it also affects my fysical health.

Its nothing i feel like i can rabbel on here, not just yet anyhow.
It has to do with my son and something he has done that affects me in so many ways.
At the moment im feeling so sad and im in such pains, but, that will hopefully be resolved, cause i got an emergency appointment to the doctor today, phew.

Just wanted to tell you all this, so that you know why i have been so quiet.
First i wasent supposed to say anything but then i tought abot you all and decided that maybe its good that you all know that im a little low right now. you all meen so much to me and i dont want you to think that i dont care. my mind has been somewhere else right now, so im so sorry if i havent been by and said hello to you all, i just dont have the energy right know. Cant even make a card,and its not even fun to color, then its bad  right,lol.

well, enough wining. I do have a card to show you, yay!
Its my dt card for the wonderful Whoopsie daisy challange. And for this challange we want to see you use some ribbon and lace.

Heres my card...

I used this cute little fairy from sheet nr 243, isnt she just sooo cute?
The dp is crate paper.
and once again i used one of my new dies and placed my image on it. I bought me a whole bunch of those dies, i meen it was impossible do decide with ones to buy, the are all so lovely.
flowers from woc and my stasch.
some wonderful white lace and a home made pin.

a close up of the beautiful little fairy...

my pin...

and some flowers...

Thats my ribbon.
Cause i cut it out from some webster ribbon.
So...i have both lace and ribbon on my card,lol.

Thats all from me.

Thanks so much for coming by today and have a wonderful day!

Embrace the journey!

Hi Friends!

how are you all doing?
Im just fine except for the boring weather we have had for a few days. Rain, rain, and rain.
I wisch it could be a real storm and a lot of thunder and lightning if its gonna be like this then let it be all in,lol.
Im a girl who loves storms and the thunder. i get so excited and i love the adrenaline boost i get from it,lol. am i  really crazy? Well maybe i am a little crazy? just like you all, ha, ha! come on admit it, whats your crazy love? I told you mine, its thunder and lightning.

Hmmm...i have no ide how im going to get my story to fit the challange,lol. I was just supposed to talk a little about the weather, witch has nothing to do with our challange over at craft us crazy.

The theeme this time is Remembrance and/or Love and its in honor of Memorial day.

We dont have memorial day here in Sweden but i tought i make a card in remembrance of my beloved dad.
I wanted to make a bright and happy card, not a sad one.
well, i guess im able to get my little thunder story to fit the theeme anyways, cause my dad loved the thunder too, i guess i got my love for it from him.
 I remember that when i was little and when we got a real thunderstorm, me and dad run out to the yard, running around in the pooring rain, singing and laughing,lol. but when the thunder got to loud we ran up to the patio. And the we sat togheter, enjoing the lightning and counting how far away the thunder was.lol.
Oh dad! I miss you sooo much. I still ask the question, WHY? Its 1 year and 2 months ago he past away, and i still cant believe it.

anyways, on to my card...

I used this beautiful and happy image from wee stamps. all of her images are just so lovely.
the papers are from jillibean soup, bright and colorful.
The flowers are from woc and my stasch.
I used one of my new dies too, i love those dies. Im still a newbie using dies, so im still oohing and aahing when i use them,lol.
A little white seembinding that i sprayed with blue mist.

I colored the image with my copics.
Around the edges of the image i stamped with some flower swirls.

Flowers...i found some cute plastic flowers in my stasch and i added a little rose in them.

my colored seembinding, can you see the shimmer of the mist?

Last picky. Do they all look kinda blurry to you? the pics i meen.
the sentiment says..."Embrace the journey"!

Our sponsor for this challange is...


Thanks for coming by!  please pop across and see the rest of the DTs wonderful creations.

Wisching you all a wonderful and happy day!

the sweet, glittery papers are from a paper pack called safari girl.
some white lace, a lot of flowers, metallic butterflyes, pearls, a home made flower, lasercut chipboard swirls that i sprayed with white mist and a home made charm. thats what made this card.(and a little me,lol)

The sentiment says "congrats"

hi there friends!

How are you all?
hows the weather over at yours? we have had a rainy day over here in sweden, a perfect crafting day. But my little babygirl didnt think that mommy was going to craft, nope, so no crafting for mommy.

Some days im really longing for the day she starts daycare. did i sound really bad now?
i just feel that it would be wonderful if i just got a few hours for myself. And i think she will be so happy to play with other little ones, not to talk of all the toys they have there, wow, i now she will love it.
i just got a notice she will start aug 25th.
Can you believe how much playtime i will get, yay!

Today i have a card to show you that is my 1st gdt card for whoopsie daisy..
oh! i got so happy when Linnie asked me to be a gdt in this wonderful and uberly talanted team.

The theeme this week is to punch it! and i used this cute little fairy from sheet 199.

I painted the edges with some white acrylic paint. the dp is glitz and the beautiful flowers are prima, i think the pink one is gorgeous.

I punched out a whole lot of butterflies.
I also added a metal corner.

Look at this cute little fairy and shes so fun to color too.

Just be exactly who you are

Hello my Friends!

Just doing a little quicky post.

I wanted to play with the sketch over at CLP and i had to (or wanted to) do a card for one of my girlfriends.
She has had a little rough times lately and i now that her selfesteem is really low right now.
Shes one of the cutest and nicest girls i now, but after her boyfriend broke up with her she really went down in a blavk hole.
So this is my cheer up card for her.

I played a little with one of the kennyk girls and this one is called "All that". I just love coloring kennyk images, but i now that i have to practise, practise and practise., and thats just what im doing,lol.
The papers i used is from the beautiful paper pack from prima called madeline.
and i had some matching little butterflyes that i just had to ad.
Once again i used the wonderful lasercut chipboards from mic, i think i use them on all my cards,lol.
wonder if im addicted to those too? think so.

I made a little swirlflower and added two homemade pins to it.

that blue lace is really beautiful but i wanted to bling it up a little, so i added some pearls to it.
Its really hard to see the sentiment, but it says..."Just be excactly who you are"!
and thats my message to my girlfriend.
cause she thinks theres something wrong with her, since the boy broke up with her.
but i want her to know that shes wonderful excactly the way she is.

and flowers...i cant be without flowers. just look at theese beautiful prima flowers. I pimped them up a little by painting them with some white crackle paint.

My swirly flower, and the pins.

thats all from me today.
I told you this was gonna bee a quicky, see, i can do quicky,lol.

Have a wonderful evening.

Hi friends!

Hope you all are doing fine out there? Im doing just fab today, at least if you compare to a few days ago.
I have had such stomach pains, again, ouch! So i have been a little off for a few days, and my posts have been a little off too i guess, but doing so much better now, all chatty again
I cant even tell you how much i appriciate to be healthy and to not have any pain.
Before i got sick i couldnt really understand how lucky i was beeing all healthy.
Its kinda sad that i have to get sick before i really started to enjoy life, to appricciate all those little things around me and learned not to take anything or anyone for granted.
It kinda got me thinking a little bit different about life.

oh well, enough whinging, im sorry!  I now theres so many out there feeling so much worse then i do.  I now i havent told you too much about my health, but this is how it is with me. I have my bad days but most often i have really good and wonderful days and im doing all good now and im back to the place i love so much, my scrapping space and my computer yay.

And for all my friends out there whos feeling sick or not feeling too good, remeber ill keep you in my prayers.

oke, on with the reason for my post.  (you see, all chatty again,lol)

We have a new challange for ya over at craft us crazy.
and the theeme is something new and/or your fav embellie.
I went for my fav embellie and guess what that is...yep, its flowers!
We also have two fab sponsors digital delights and pixie cottage

Heres my card...

I used this beautiful stamp from sweet pea called Kiara by Elaine cox.
The dp is from Glitz design. I painted all the edges with some white acrylic paint
I rolled up some music paper and tied some paper lace around it.
I also made my own little swirl flower and added a white pearl in the middle.
A whole lot of my fav embellies...FLOWERS!
two kinds of different lace, to the one at the top i added some orange bling. 
I also added some bling to the beautiful image

Isnt she a beauty...?
Here you can see the bling i put in her hair.

Hi Friends!

I was supposed to post this yesterday, but blogger was messing around with me, again!.
like many of you i have a love hate reletionship with blogger, i hate the days its not working and love the days it works,lol..
Now im gonna hurry and do this post before it stops working again,lol.

We have a new challange up for ya over at creative card crew.

Our sponsor this time is the fabulous robyns fetish. and i have used her beautiful papers on my card.
but i guess my card is so covered with stuff so you hardly see the papers,lol.

Heres my card...

I played a little with Tilda again, and a beautiful flower frame from mic.
It didnt turn out the way i had in mind (i wasnt supposed to tell you that). I had a totally different pic in my head, how often doesent that happen? at least it does for me.

I got an ide and have a pic in my head how i want it to look, but in the end it turns out totally different than what i had in mind. sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worst, this is one of those times.

Anyways, i love that mic flowerframe and ofcourse i love little Tilda.
I used some flowers from woc and those white butterflyes, that i blinged up a little, are from woc also.
the swirl is a magnolia die and i finisched the card off with some blingy bling.

Im going to write some beautiful poem or something in that flower frame, but i dont now who to give it to yet and i couldnt find any good poems or lyrics. Does anybody of you now a good site where to find some good lyrics or poems?

Heres a close up of Tilda.

please check out the other DTs beautiful creations over at creative card crew, and hopefully you can join us this week too?

Now im keeping my fingers crossed that blogger will post this time,
oke, here we go...

Have a wonderful day!
