Going Bananas!

Hello my lovelies!

Im gonna try and do a quicky post tonight, cause its already 24.00 and im soooo tiered.
Cant wait to get to bed where my little princess is waiting. Yup, shes snoring in our big bed. Its so cozy to have her there and to snuggle with her.
oooh! I just love to wake up in the mornings and the first thing i see is her happy, smiling little face. Kinda "puts the silverlining to the whole day". I think thats how you say it???lol

So, gonna stop babbeling and show you a little card i made for Midweek Magnolias, where this weeks challange  is a fabby sketch.

Heres my card...

Iv used Going Banans Tilda. Been wanting to color her for ages.

I did try to challange myself a little bit. This really isnt colors im used to use, so....
had a lot of fun tho, and i really like this colorcombo.

The papers iv used is from Magnolia.

Played around alittle with the flowers adding gold dots to them al,lol.

The big gorgeous flower is from prima and the little roses are woc.

 Thats what i had to show you for today, or is it tomorrow already?

Bee sure to stop by Midweek magnolias to see what the rest of the dt girls did with this weeks sketch, some fabby inspiration for ya over there, that i can promise you!

Oki doki, now im off to bed.

God Night my lovlies! Sleep tight!

Fun times!

God Morning peeps!

Its officially SUMMER today, yay!

Last night the clock was turned one hour forward and summertime started here in Sweden.

Yesterday we was over at our local flowergarden bying alot of spring flowers. I looove it! I also bought alot of seeds that im gonna plant inside until its warm enough to get them outside. Atho its summertime its still just about 10- 15+ outside.
I have some plans to do a few big flowerampels with lots of hanging flowers in.
I usually do that every year and they look so gorgeous, and if you really care for them they get humangous!

Iv been thinking...(yup, im braging...:))
I do love that its summer, but i cant understand why we have to loose one hour when its summer and earn one hour when its winter. I would want it the other way around, cause i want more time when its summer???

well, well, guess i can live with that:) The important thing is that its finally Summertime!

Today im gonna show you a little fun bookmark that i made.

I have used a stamp from Nellie Snellen called Schoffie skating.

This couple is so cute, dont you think?
I have actyally fuzzy cut the image and change places on the two cutiepies.
this is how the stamp looks...

Nellie's C - Schoffie skating (Style 2) - Click Image to Close 

I tryed to color with my prismas on some white paper. I have only tryed to color on kraft before. Im starting to really like those pens:).

The dp i have used is from Crate Paper - Emmas Shoppe.

I have also used some Lemon Rafia lace.

You can find it over at Bunny Zoes Crafts

Oki doki, thats al from me for now. If the flowerplanting dont take too long ill be back later on.

Have a wonderful day peeps! and thank you so much for stopping by. Loves ya!

Big hugs bettina.

We have such wonderful weather over here. Spring has finally arrived, yay!!!
Can you believe that today we have 17+ outside, thats almoust like summer.
Its soooo lovely!!!I feel how i get so much more energy from the lovely and warm sun.
I hope that where ever you are you also can enjoy a sunshiny day?!

Im so glad you stopped by today, cause im so happy to show you my first DT card that i made for Midweekmagnolias. ( im sorry im one day late, but i couldnt get my computer to work with me yesterday)

This week we have a recipe for you. 1-2-3 = 1 Ribbon, 2 Pearls and 3 flowers. 

Heres what i made...

I used the cute little Rose cent Tilda, and i monted her on a easelcard made with my Fleur de lis Spellbinder die.

The dps i used is from the new Websters pages line, and they are al so, so beautiful.

I also used some lace, 1 pearlribbon, 2 pearls, 3 woc roses and also a wonderful chippie from Make it crafty.

Im back from our wonderful little hotel weekend. And let me tell ya, we really needed that:)
Some good food,mmmmm..., a steaming hot sauna,aaaaaah... and the cozyest bed ever, zzzzzz.... I think we watched 4 movies, so not that much sleep. Well, we didnt wanna sleep our little vacation away,lol.

Anyways, today im here to show you a card i made for Copic Marker Europe blog, with a new wonderful Make it crafty image called Adele. I totally LOVE it. Just look at that flowing hair!

I had a really good time coloring her until i noticed that one of my copics was almoust empty, and what i learned about that was that you cant blend with a almoust empty copic,lol. Oh well, i tryed to do the best of it, didnt have the time to start over. But i do think it took me longer to try to fix the image then if i had started over instead,lol. Hope my misstakes doesent show too much, and at the end i learned how to try to fix a damaged image, so another copic lesson learned today."DONT color with a empty copic";)

 This is how my card turned out...

I have used some beautiful papers from Bobunny called "Snowfall". They have this big glittery snowflakes and swirls on them, so the papers are actually really wintery, but i dont think you can see that? and the colors on them are just beautiful, dont you think?.

The flowers are from Prima and I am roses.

The chipboard word "remember" is from Dusty attic.

and the little birdy is a resin piece also from Prima (ingvild Bolme)

Heres a close up of the image.
Isnt she just lovely?

The copics i have used is:
Skin: E000, E00, E11
cheeks: R20
Hair:Y0000, E33, E17, E18, E000.

Hope you liked my card?!

And thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have a wonderful weekend everybody!

Big hugs Bettina

Stampartic...Papercraft Scandinavia (Inkido)

God afternoon Friends!

How is everybody doing this Thursday afternoon?

Im just fine except for a terrible headace...

So, what are you al up too? will there be any crafting today?
Im hoping to get some crafting done today, as soon as my head gets normal again, well, its never normal,lol...but it normally doesent hurt this much:(.

Today im gonna show you a little mini that i did some time ago.

Al the  wonderful girls over at Stampartic got some yummy goodies containing patterned papers, stamps, decorations and vintage photos from...

Papercraft Scandinavia is a manufacturer that design and make unique material for scrapbooking, cardmaking and other craftings.
We design stamps, patterned paper, lace, flowers and much more in romantic vintage style. Our products are of high standard, inspiring and amazing to create with. 

Welcome to us!

SO...since today is The INTERNATIONAL WOMANS DAY here in Sweden...
I used some of the goodies to create this mini...

This is a celebration to al the wonderful , lovely and amazing woman in the whole wide word.

“A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it's in hot water.” 

“I'm tough, I'm ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.” 
― Madonna

“Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?", here's an update for you. Nowadays 80%of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!” 

“Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men.” 

“In politics, If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.” 

Have a Wonderful Day!

And dont forget that YOU ARE AMAZING!!!

Big Hugs
