OMGosh! My first Magnolia card !!

Hi peeps!
You won't believe it, would you? That I haven't got ANY Magnolia stamps before a couple of weeks ago?! Well, in fact, that's true! Too sad, in fact. I can tell at this moment, when I've got my first Tilda and colored her up. I loooooved her from the first brush stroke!! Thank you SO much Jacque!! It's her generousity that brought Tilda onto my crafting desk, since I won one of her amazing candies!! Thanks again, you're the best !!! *hugging*
I colored her up the same day I got her in my mail box - but I have been so busy with all those confirmation cards, that I haven't got the chance to finish the card. But now I have ! :)
I became a friendshipcard, I thought the image fits perfect to a friend :)
I'm now able to enter Magnolia Down Under Challenge for the very first time, using their fab sketch :)
I'm also entering the following challenges:

* Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything goes
* Simon Says Stamp and Show - Buttons
* Lollipop Crafts - Shabby Chic or Vintage
* Scrappekammeret - Anything goes

Here's my finished project:

My finished card :)

Gorgeous Tilda ! I know her outfit doesn't match the papers, but I thought it didn't matter, I only think that Tilda comes more "through" in the card - and she's so sweet that she deserves to be the focal point !!! ;)

You'll find joy in those small moments of everydays :) I thought the text was perfect for this image, since Tilda is having such a great time jumping in autumn leaves :)

Look, the card brings a gift! A dragonfly brooch which can be taken off...

...and the card will still look good after the gift is taken off ;) You can see the button I've sewed onto the felt flower too...

Dear friend...

Scrapp med hjertet 2011

Better late than ever... I wanted to share some pics from the scrap event in Tromsø three weeks ago - Scrapp med Hjertet. I had two fantastic days, met many fantastic and creative ladies, and learned A LOT! My "biggest" happening was Maya's Distress Ink Reinkers coloring class. I fell in love from the very first brush stroke - and I've found all my old stamps, stamped them up and started to color them. I can hardly stop... *lol*
Today I've stayed home from work - my head and troat is hurting and I've been lying in my bed almost all day. My 8 years old daughter has been home too, so we've been sleeping together... *lol* Well, I think I'm better after tons of sleep, so I hope that I'll get back at work again tomorrow.
Well, here comes some pics from Scrapp med Hjertet:

Pictures from the "makingtables" - some of the ladies were VERY productive (I was overwhelmed by all these amazing talents, and could hardly make anything... *lol*)

Some pics from the card we made on Maya's fantastic Distress Ink Reinkers coloring class - I love Maya's card, made with Hanglar stamp and papers from 3ndy papir. I hope I'll be just half as good as she is one day ;) In the meantime, I've got this gorgeous card I made by her own design!! Thank you Maya for your fabulous class, you really made me love coloring - I'm hooked!! *smile*

I also went to Camilla's Bookcard class. I've made some of these cards before, but wanted to see if I could get some new tips and inspiration - and I did !! Thank you Camilla!! ;o) Your card was beautiful - and here is how my card ended up... (Aaawwwhh, those papers from Maja Design are so beautiful... )

Well, that's pretty much what I had today. I had so much fun on Scrapp med Hjertet and I hope it will be a new event in Tromsø next year!! Thank you so much Camilla and Astrid for all your work - you're the best !!! ;)

Lots of love,
