FBW #124 - Make it glitter and sparkle!!! ;)

Hi there!
Today is kinda sad to me - it's my last duty as a GDT at Flutter By Wednesday's... (sniff, sniff...) I've had such a great time designing for my favorite challenge blog, and I'll sure miss being on your team, ladies!! A special thanks to the fantastic talented and attentive owner, Danni! Thanks for giving me this great oppotunity! I've had such a fantastic month! And thank you all you ladies on the team, you're all great artists and I'm honored to been working with you!!!
I've been having some crazy weeks with LOTS of work and trying to catch up things at home too, so I've been having trouble finding time to leave messages to all the participants in the challenges - I'm really REALLY sorry 'bout that!! :(
Okay... enough of the sad things ;)
Today it's challenge time at Flutter By Wednesday's again!! And the theme is one of my absolutely favorites: SHIMMER, SPARKLE AND GLITTERING !
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

* Friday Sketchers Blog - Sketch #121
* Lollipop Crafts - Glitter, sparkle, gems

And here are some photos:

The card's inside - with a little gift ;) I wanted to put colored tealights in it, but I have to buy someone first - the dark autumn evenings have "taken" all mine... LOL

The sentiment says something like "Good friends makes the smile last longer"

FBW #123 - Anything with wings!!!

Welcome to my blog and to this week's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday's !! ;)
For THIS WEEK ONLY Danni has decided that you can enter the challenge with ANYTHING with wings! ;)
I do love butterflies, angels and fairies so I had some trouble using anything else... Ha ha! But then I found a fantastic image from Meljens Design, and I just HAD to color it up - and it's so cute!
I guess that those of you who knows me and my style, will take notice of the clean and simple style - not many details added to this card. But I got so inspired of the CAS cards around lately and wanted to try it myself ;)

This card goes to the following challenges:
* Friday Sketchers Blog - Sketch #120
* That's just so Cute, So Cute #13  - At least 3 buttons, no flowers, 2 DP's or more

The finished card - it's meant to be a man card ;)

Such a cutie (I think he looks like a real man! LOL)

The dymo sentiment, a little papers and some buttons ;)

Okey, that's all I had for now. I've had some busy days - it's a puzzle to combine being a mother to 3 little kids, involved in lots of activities and juggle between a half time job and 2-3 other jobs at school/kindergarden/farming. But it's only for a period - I hope ;)
Wish you all some fantastic days and hope to see you next Wednesday for the Flutter By Wednesday challenge ;)

FBW #122 - Buttons

Hello there!
And welcome to another week at Danni's Flutter By Wednesdays Challenge! This week's challenge is sponsored by the fantastic Woodware USA, and I've been so lucky to get to work with some of their fantastic stamps! Woodware USA was totally new to me - but I loved their stamps right away!! You should take a look in their webshop!! Along with a fairy, butterfly or angel, this week Danni wants you to use BUTTONS on your creation. And I love using buttons on my projects, so this challenge was great to me ;) But I had some trouble figuring out how to use the fantastic stamps in my project - I had so many ideas when I got the images!! But in the end I decided to make a creation where the images would be the focal point - and I also got to make something else than the usual square cards that I make so often ;)
So I decided to make some tag cards! ;)

The cards goes to the following challenges:
* Kort O Mania - Birthdaycard
* Nord-Salten Hobbyklubb - Wings

Here are some photos:

I was so lucky to get to work with the cute Fairy Tots images - aren't they adorable?!?! ;)

FBW #121 - Pink and LOTS of pink!!!

Hi there!
My second week as a GDT at Flutter By Wednesdays are here! Yesterday my youngest son turned two, and we were having a little celebration after we all came home from work, school and kindergarden ;) He's proud to be a "big boy"!!
This week Danni wants to see you create something with bunches of her favorite color - P I N K !!! And off course you have to add a butterfly, fairy or angel :) You may read more about the challenge at the Flutter By Wednesdays Blog. This week the DTgirlies have been so lucky to recieve their own stamps from the kind and generous Susana at Susana's Custom Arts and Cards Design (SCACD). On behalf of the girls I want to send lots of warm thoughts for her generousity!
When I should make a card with LOTS of pink, I thought I could try to make a monochromatic card... That would give a real pinky card!! ;)
My card goes to the following challenges:

* CLP Challenge - Sketch #29
* Nord-Salten Hobbyklubb - Wings
* Sukkersøtt - Monochromatic
* Stamp Something - Something Cute
* Kort 'O Mania - Stitching
* Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Pearls and lace

Here's the finished card - a birthdaycard for a 2year old girlie ;)

A closer look at the beautiful stamp "Angel Eyes - Princess" from Kreativ Hobby. I've altered some wings from my daughter's toys - some wings had fell off her Thinkerbell doll, and couldn't be fixed. And off course I just HAD to put it into my "box of potential embellishment" *lol* I think it worked out good :)

As always, I couldn't wait for the glue to dry before I took the pictures...

One of my homemade roses - distressed and added some glitters

The inside

I machinesewed around every sticker on the inside - and it took a while... *lol*

Stamp: Angel Eyes Princess and Congratulations sentiment from Kreativ Hobby
Coloring: Watercolorpencils
Papers: Carton from Ursus and Panduro Hobby, handmade papers from Notabene (Three different papers)
Others: Distress Ink Vintage Photo from Ranger on all edges and on the embossed backgroundpaper. Doily Lace Edge border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts. Ribbons from Notabene. Halfpearls from Kort og Godt. Homemade flowers. Machinesewing.

My kids' adventcalendar

Hello to all of you !
First: Have you entered my candy??? You can read more about it here....
For once I'm a little early with some of my Christmas preparations... I've been thinking of making a new advent calender for my kids for some years now - and finally I got the right motivation for doing it!! So... I'm a little early, right!? *lol*
I made the calendar by using 24 matchboxes. Since I'm a mother to three children, my plan is to hide a secret message into the numbered boxes. They will get a little wrapped gift that they have to search for in the house, or they will get an activity (like a day at the swimminghall, baking gingerbreads, making christmas decorations or stuff like that...) I think they will love their new calendar ;)
If you want to make this kind of calendar for your kids, you can find a tutorial here...
The calendar goes to the following challenges:

* Sir Stampalot Challenge - All Distressed
* Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings - Flowers
* Scrappekammeret - Anything Goes

The finished result, side #1

Side #2

Side #3

Side #4

On the top - the sentiment is saying "Waiting time". The flower is alered from my grandmothers old candle decoration.

Cute snowman acrylic decorbutton - I think it fits the snowman dp's perfect ;)

One of the matchboxes from the inside

* Papers: - Karen Foster Design- Snowman Parade. Snowflake papers from Nille. Red carton.
Others: All edges are distressed with Distress Ink Vintage Photo from Ranger. The flower is altered from one of my granmother's candle decorations. Ribbons (unknown) Silver 3d liner. Pearls. String. Letters from Nille. Thickers, acrylic snowman button. Wooden decor.

I hope you liked my calendar - and maybe you got inspired to make your own ;) I had so much fun making it, and I'm sure the kids will love it - especially in December... *lol*
Wish you a fantastic week. Tomorrow my youngest son turns 2 years so I guess there will be some kind of sugar then... *lol*
Thanks for visiting my blog, remember to enter my candy :)

Lots of love,
