I woke up early in the morning, it was around 5.30.
I opened my eyes and looked out my window, it was still dark. But i knew it was really could out there cause it was even could inside.
I got up and swept my robe around me, brrrr it was so cold. I got closer to the window and from the light off the lamp post i could see that it was snowing.
Oh my! that meens kaos out there. I for sure wouldnt wanna get out there, driving in that weather.
Well, was i lucky, it was my day at home. The only thing i was going to do was to spend some lovely time in my craft room.
Gotta get downstairs to put on some hot coffee and get started with some fun coloring.
Craftroom here i come.

Poored up some of that warm coffe and stumbled in to my own little space (i got theese lurvy slippers with huge bunny ears for christmas, therefor the stumbling, those ears, they are cute but genormeous:))
Put on the computer and tought that the first thing i would do was to check my mails.
Opened up my mail and what did i see?...It cant be true!...Really?!...You gotta be kidding me.
I pinched my self one time, ouch! two times, still hurts! i think i did it a third time too,lol.
Well there it was, some realy, really happy news. It said:

Tilda with flower!

Hello friends!

It feels like i have been gone like forever. and i have missed you al lots and lots!
What can i say other then busy, busy and a sick baby on top of that, so not much playtime for me.
well, guess you al know how it is.

Anyways, today im here to show you my first dt card for copic marker europe blog, yay! Im soo happy about that but also a bit nervous. Im really not that sure about my coloring skills .I promise that i will do my best, but please be nice oke,lol

I made a card with this sweet little Tilda called Tilda with peony tails. She's from the new "sweet crazy love" collection. I love al the stamps from this new collection, so its really hard to choose witch one to color up first,lol.

After a while i decided to go with this beautiful tilda.

I made my desicion becouse of my design papers. I have theese beautiful Maja Design papers with beautiful purple roses on that i have been patting for a long time know. Some papers are so hard to cut in, they are so beautiful. But now i finally decided to cut in them..

I wanted to color that big flower that Tilda is holding in lilac/purple. I actually haven't used that much lilacs so I was off to the craft room to experiment a little on which copics to use.
I think i finally found a good combination, what do you think?

I really like this purple, green, black and white color combo.
The beautiful Maja Design papers are called "Ska vi ta en fika"

So, so sweet!:)

Some beautiful flowers from prima and woc

love those purple blings too,lol.

Copics i have used is:
Skin/Haut: E50, E51, E00, E11, Cheeks: E93, R21
Hair/Haar: E51, E31, E33, E35, E37
Dress+ Shoes/Kleid und Schuhe: W1, W2, W3, W5
Flower/Blume: RV91, V06, V12.
Leaves/Blätter: G40, YG61, G94.

If you dont have her yet, and you really have to, wanna, must, go crazy without  this sweet Tilda, Just head on over to Bunny Zoes and there she will be waiting for you,lol.
Enabler! Who? me?....

Thanks alot for stopping by today, meens so much to me.
Hope i could give you some inspiration, just like you al give bunches of to me.

Have a wonderful evening lovelies!

The skethy challanges. Corrys sketch.

Hi friends!

How is everybody doing today?
I have had a really calm and lazy saturday, taking care off and cuddyling with my sick little baby girl. Love that! Not that shes sick,lol, but the cuddyling part.
Shes doing so much better today, compeared to yesterday, so thats good.
Shes almoust back to beeing her happy, giggeling self.

Today is my first post as a new DT member over at The sketchy challanges (former Pink INK sketches) YAY!

Im sooo happy about that.!!! Beeing a part of this talanted team, and i looove sketches!

I think its the perfect way to get the mojo going. I also realised that sketches makes me go past my own comfort zones(its a really tiny zone). They inspire me and give me new ideas that i wouldnt even have tought about normally.
So in that process, while trying and experimenting, im also learning new things.
It doesent always end up the way i had in mind, but what a heck, maybe the next time ill be able to do it a little bit better and at least i had fun while messing it al up,lol.

Today we have a fabby sketch made by the wonderful Corry.

Here is the sketch...

And heres my card...

I used a cute little image from Saturated Canary.

The papers are a  from create papers. I got them last summer, but i still think they are so beautiful.

This next pic will show you a little about the problems i have while making cards...

Witch leaves should i use???
The dark ones or the lighter ones???

Ill take the dark ones. No wait! i take the lighter ones,lol.
This is to where al my hours of card making is going. I just cant decide what to use, and i do like this with everything on the card. From the image, to the papers and then im worst with the embellies,lol.

well, now you know why it takes me days to finisch a card,lol.
and now when im looking at the cards i think i regret that i changed the leaves. The dark ones was better?

A close up of the cutest little image. I really love coloring them.

A little pin. one of those things iv never used on a card before, and i dont know why i havent. It gives a really fun and playful toutch to the card i think. So thanks Corry!

For the sentiment i made a little banner.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Cant wait to see what fun you al will do with Corrys sketch.
Im actually really excited to see what you al will come up with. Theres so much you can do with this sketch, just jump over to The Sketchy Challanges and youll see what i meen. The DT has come up with some amazing inspiration.

Have a wonderful evening!

(hmmm....think i liked the lighter leaves better after al....lol)
