Hugs!

Phew! im running, and running, and running.....late,lol

So, lets get on with the fun stuff right away shall we? pinky promise i will not babble on and on today.
Was going thru my blog posts today and that one blogpost, a few weeks ago was soooo long, my gosch i was suprised that some of you had even read thru it al,lol.  Oke, i feel that im picking up a subject again, blogposting, i could go on and on about that, especially blogger, and how he is misbehaving. so i better stop.

We have a super fun challange for ya over at Midweek Magnolias, and the challange is to use two, yup two magnolia stamps, fun huh?!
It can be A Tilda and Tilda or...
Tilda and Edwin or...
Tilda with a dog...
a dog with a background...well,i think you get it.

I had so much fun making my card this time, cause i really love to use more than one image on my cards, but hardly ever do so. Dont know why. Maybe its becouse it for sure takes a bit longer to finisch it of since you have more images to color. (Well, mostly, but not this time, youll see what i meen), and im still kinda struggeling with my coloring from time to time, if not al of the time.

Heres my card...and...i used 3 stamps on it, yay (not al magnolia tho)


Wowza! this pic looks really blurry, doesent it? oh well, the next one should be brighter (i know, im too lazy to go back to change it,... No, let say im too stressed, since im running late,lol)
I think this image is called siblings? I gave it to hubby for his birthday. Its to him from the kids with a BIG hug!!!
Guess you are wondering where my other 2 images are....


Tada!!!

The second image that i used is the Magnolia love background and i stamped it on a Magnolia tag die, and tucked it in on the right side of the card. I also tied some misted seembinding to it.
And for the third one i used my newest favorite, the whimsy notebook page stamp, just LOVE it!
and that one is hidden on top of the card, also with seembinding tied to it.

Oh and the dps, just gotta talk about the lovely MME paperpad. My gosch,im totally in love with al the latest MME papers. Theese ones are from the "On the bright side-two" paper pad. .I think i have the rest ones coming my way and feels like i have been waiting for ages. Hmmm...maybe i have? 6 weeks now. No wonder im starting to get a wee bit crazy. 


A closeup...


Beautiful Magnolia flowers...
I also played with theese wonderful wooden embellies, a flower and a dragon fly.
sprayed them with some walnut gold glimmer mist and added a Woj chrystal to the flower.


Just one more pick of the Whimsy notebook page stamp, so you al can see just how wonderful it really is,lol.


Oksi doksi. Now i can finally relax and go watch some tellie, my post is finally up,yay! and blogger...im just warning you...dont you even think about playing with me...!

But you al my lovelies, i would love to see you al come along and play with us.
If you need some inspiration or eye candy just pop on over to Midweek Magnolias, the girls have some stunning creations to show ya!

Most of the papers and embellies and stamps on my card is from the wonderful shop called Bunny zoes crafts.

Embellies: Wooden ornaments

Cute little Dragon.

Hi Friends!

What a wonderful Sunday we have had here in sweden today.
Hubby has cleaned out the patio, so now we have the tables and the chairs out there.
If tomorrow morning is as lovely as today was, i will take my coffe and drink it outside, yay! I think that spring is finally here. But wait a minute...feels like i have said that before,lol.
Just have to keep my fingers and toes crossed that this time its really true.
Please, please, let the spring finally be here to stay.

Today im gonna show you a card i made with a cute little dragon. Its a sweet pea stamp. I havent used a sweet pea stamp for ages, so i tought it was about time. And this dragon was so perfect for the sketch that Janine made for us over at The sketchy challanges.

Heres my card...


and heres the wonderful sketch...


I also found a new thingy on my photoediting program...


You can make every photo look like a polaroid pic...me likey!
What do you think?


a little closeup of sleeping beauty,lol...

I colored him with my copics, and al the white dots i made with my distress pen.
I bought al the new distress pens, but i havent been able to use them:(.
and can you guess why?
Well, when i got them i put them away somewhere, out of reach for my daughter,
and now i cant find them, anywhere.
Can you believe that!!!lol.



I made some flowers with a flower die from memory box.
and  added a white pearl in them.
I think they are so beautiful.


Chipboard clouds, painted with white distress stain.

Well, i guess thats it for today.
Hope you liked my cute little dragon card?

Oh, i almoust forgot, again...
I wanna say a big HI and welcome to my place to al my new followers. 
Im so happy and honored that you al are here.
I hope i can inspiere you and that you will enjoy yourself.
Thank you! so much!

Looksie what i made...

Good morning!

Happy Thursday moning everybody!

Today im here to show you a little hair band i made for my little Princess.

I had so much fun making it and i think it looks kinda cute, just looksie...


Over at Midweek Magnolias we also have a new challange for ya.
and this weeks challange are "A Very Special Birthday". 
All birthday's are special, but some are more special than others, and this week we are paying tribute to those. Whether it's a baby's 1st, a child becoming a teenager, a sweet 16, a coming of age 18, key to the door 21, or those very scary ones that follow!! LOL! 

I think the first years of a baby are so specia. There is so much happening in our babies lifes theese first special years.
My little princess will be 3 in july, and i was thinking to give it to her as a birthday present, but...

I was doing my own thingy in my craftroom when she walked in and i heared her say...
-oooh! This is Melindas?...mummy, nice. Melinda likey!
and well, i had left it on my craft table, so ofcourse she saw it. And what could i say?
She was so cute standing there with her big blue eyes...

-Yes! It is Melindas, and i put it on her head and she was so happy about it and she really liked it.
She had it on her al day long and runned to the mirror looking at her self and said...nice,lol.



Mummys little cutie pie. Its so worth it, to make things when someone really likes it, dont you think? I actually didnt think that she would like it as much as she do, so i really think i have to make another one :)


Wanna now how i did it?
I had a beare headband to start with. I took some pink ribbon and tied it around the hearband, i used some doublesided tape to make it stick.
Easy peasy!:)
Then i just started to decorate it.
I used a magnolia die to make the flower, colored up a cute little mini Tilda and i just stuck her in to the flower die, some more ribbon and a little brad. Glued it on the hairband and... Voila! im done!
You should try it. It was so easy and oh so fun!

Now i hope you wil join us over at Midweek Magnolias and celebreate someones "Very Special Birthday"
If you need some fabby inspiration just pop over to Midweek Magnolias, the girls have made some amazing creations!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Bunny zoe - Use ribbon or twine

Hello my lovelies!

Hope you al have had a wonderful Easter time. Mine was good until Sunday night when i got the big bad stomach bug. So iv been down. Just laying on the sofa pjuking my guts out,lol. Really, havent felt this bad for a very long time. Feeling a little bit better now, but it feels like iv been running the marathon or something like that. Im still totally out.
So, thats my reason for beeing a little late with my post. So sorry for that.

Anyways, on with the fun stuff!!!:)
We have a new challange over at Bunny Zoes!!! and the challange is to use some ribbon or twine.
and this time i did something a little bit different than a card. I made a Smash page...




Can you see my twine?

It was supposed to be a page about my love for coffe, but in the making it became a page of my love for tea. Guess the other side will be a coffe page then,lol.

Sometimes when i drink my tea the aroma makes me fly away to a beautiful summerday.
In my head it looks kinda like this page.


I cut out some strips from the lovely MME papers, and added the i love letters...


I also cut out the sun and theese clouds, and i just had to ad that little birdy sticker...


And heres the image. A tea cup with a beautiful flower coming out of it, and it smells delicious...

and sometimes a warm cup of tea can really be a healing Elixir, especially when theres some honey in it.


Oki doki, i cant wait to see what you al will come up with, it can be so fun to play around with ribbon and twine.

For some fabby inspiration be sure to stop by Bunny Zoes.
The Dt has made some amazing crations as always.

Thank you for stopping buy and have a wonderful day!:)

Big hugs Bettina

This and that...and a winner!!!

Hello sweet Friends!

How is Easter going! A lot of Easterbunnys bouncing around?
Been eating lots off  eggs? I have...

We have had a few Bunnys and Easter witches knocking on our door. I dont know how many of you have Easter witches? Here in Sweden its a big and fun tradition to dress up the kids (and grownups too, the ones who dear. Im one of those,lol) to Easter witches and then they go thru the neighbourhood knocking on the doors asking for treats. Its much like the trick or treating during halloween.

Heres how they can look...


and heres my baby...




Excactly how a witch should look...no teeth,lol.

It feels like i have a lot to blog about, so lets get on with it.
First im gonna show you my post thats up over at  the Copic marker Europe blog.

I decided to color up this cute little Tilda. The barrel that she is carrying her delicious apples in looks  like its made of  wood. It remindes me so much of the ones i have in my back yard, and they are both made of wood.

Oki doki, the first color i have used is E 81...
***


The next color would be E 44...
***


Then i add a little bit of E 47...
***


At this point i use the E 81 again and blend a little...
after the blending it would look like this...


The last thing i do is to add a little bit of  E 49 and once again i blend it al.
After al the steps my barrel looks like this...
***


So, what do you think? Does it look like a old "dirty" wooden barrel?
***

Calling it old and "dirty" cause once again im thinking about the ones i have, and they have been thru alot, standing outside in the backyard for about 10 years.
***

Oki doki, hope that this little tut could help and inspiere some of you, cause i know i had some problems with my browns. I kinda couldnt get it to look "woody":).
