It sure has been some sad days here in Norway, after the massacre in Oslo and on Utøya on July 22nd. It's been really hard for me to create anything, I've been having so much going on in my mind...
But July has been a good month too - my family went on a short vacation in the middle of the month. And we've been having lots of nice, shiny weather. And in fact, it seems like we're going to get our own beautiful house in the end of this year. Exciting!! :)
The fall season is just around the corner - and in fact, I'm looking forward to that. Dark evenings with candles, a cup of tea and off course: CARDMAKING!! :)
Today we're starting the month of August with a new gorgeous sketch by Chelsea on the CLP Challenge blog.
This month we're sponsored by Whimsy Stamps!! Wuhuu!! They are having SO many gorgeous stamps, and the DT girlies was so lucky to get our own stamps to work with. I had already started to create my card with a gorgeous Kenny K image I had, but I'll sure create a card later with the images we got. Thanks a bunch for your generousity, Crystal !!!
Well... Here are some pics of my card:
The finished card - I gonna give it to my daughter who turns 9 years in two weeks. She's both cool and dressy, and I found this Kenny K image perfect for her ;)
Closeup pic of the image. I've added some glossy accents to her lips and some glitters to her jeweleries, but unfortunately that doesn't show up any good on the pic...
For a cool girl ;)
The rose has got some glitterglue on ;)
