Trying something new!

Good morning Friends!

How is everybody doing in this freezing weather?
Hey, who brought winter back? Its -15 here in Sweden right now, brrrrr....

I cant believe how long its since i made my last post, over a week.
Well, i have been busy, busy, busy.

One thing we have been doing is visiting a whole lot of different high schools.
My son is becoming a big boy.
Dont know if im too happy about that:(, hes really growing up waaaay too fast.
But i think he is happy about it, especially the part of deciding for himself, making his own decisions and choises,lol. Even tho he is realising that its not always that easy to do.
Its really a special and tough time in his life right know. Many choises to make.
I think he has made up his mind...Hes going to the navy highschool!!

We did visit both the school and the big boat ( witch mostly will be his classroom:)) and i think this is perfect for him. There will be so many new adventures  and so many new possibilities for him.
Keeping my fingers crossed that everything will work out, just have to wait and see...

and talking about trying out something new...I have been trying out something new too,lol.

Its Februari the 1st, (where did Januari go?) and that meens a NEW challenge over at stampartic, Yay!
The NEW challenge is... Do something NEW!
Fun huh?
A perfect chance to try out something that has been on your mind.
You now the thing that you have been wanting to try out for such a long time now, but you kinda havent gotten there. What you waiting for, now is the time to do it!:)

Whilest bloghopping i came across a beautiful pop up card that i just had to try out for my self. Such a wonderful desing, just looksie...

Isnt the design just awsome?

I tought it was going to be really hard to do, but i followed the tutorial over here and it went really easy.

I have used little Tilda and her fence.
The papers is also Magnolia.

I stamped around the edges on the craft paper with my MS punch.

I also used my new tree die from Marianne Design, love it!

The flowers are a mix of woc and i am roses .

The coloring was made with my beloved copics:

Here you can see when the card is closed...

and here its pulled open.

Fun huh!?

Even my hubby said...
This is the best card you have ever done hunny! lol:) Isnt he just too sweet?

It was really, really fun to make this card, so i warmly recommend you to try it out, if you havent yet.

and for some inspiration and some lovely eyecandy hop on over to the stampartic blog.

Hope you liked my little pop up card.?
