Wolds coolest dwarf :)

Yesterday I had a play with a new Mo Manning image called Dwarf 4 . I think he is just yber cool!
I had to make a birthdaycard for one of Sebastians friends and this image was my choice
I love how this image turned out!
Theese Mo Manning images are a dream to colour!

I have used the papers from Basic grey, pyrus pad, think the colours in it are just fantastic
I have used a swirl from TH and a coin from the same guy :)
Used my crop a dile to make holes in it and took a jute string through the holes.

White christmas and a pig...

Good morning blogland!
Since december is coming closer I have to speed up a bit with my christmascards!
We have a new challenge at Teddy Bo today and we are going for.....
White Christmas

Ohhh my Godness was my first thought...
After cleaning my house to get control of my nerves *hihi*
-I rolled up my sleeves and made this-
A White christmas PIG tag :)

I painted the tag white,
used the new released image FAIRYD_TB_PICKLES_002 found here
Coloured with Copics, added glossy and snow marker
I have glued a old bookpage with Glue'n'seal on the bottom of the tag
Used a white paper doilie and some big snowflakes, a feather
and the numbers 24 painted white
All the embellishments comes from my stash, a little from here and a little from there :)

Same on the back with the glue'n'seal and bookside, but I need more practice..
But the effect is very cool :)
Christmas rhyme from NSS

Isn't this just a cute pig!
He maybe looks a little lost there in all the white snow, hehe!
My princess loved it and said she needed it when she was going to bed.. Kids...LOL

Hope you can join us at Teddy Bo this week and I can't wait to see your white creations!
This is this weeks release:

From 1st December Nela, one of my Teddy Bo Teamies will be running an advent calendar on her blog,
each day there will be a new workshop with instructions for various items including packaging, table decorations, card shapes and more and on the 24th there will be candy. Check out the link in my sidebar.
Lots of hugs!

For Sue

Today at Allsorts we have a really great theme for you!
The lovely Helene is the smart brain behind it and she wants you to use


This is what I did for the challenge
Can you belive I actually made a card without a coloured image!
The fantastic sentiment comes from the Pink Ribbon release over at Tickled Pink Stamps and it was to raise money for breastcancer during october.
I just love it.

Like you see on the front banner the card is for Sue, one lovely english lady who loves her cuppa, thats why the little teapot.

After seeing Nicoles fantastic cards with rounded edges I drove to Bikuben and bought me a MF corner rounder a while back, and I love it! Thanks for the inspiration sweetie!
My sister didn't belived that I had made this card, since it it so diferent from what I normally do...

My flowers are from Maritha, my kind, sweet and true friend. Takk vennen min!
And the swirl...yeah, it's my old Magnolia one... hihihi, think I need a new one :)

Ohhh I almost forgot!
THE papers, they are so beautiful, you cant belive it!
They are from the christmas range from Poppy design, by Vibeke Spigseth.
They are my alltime favorite :)
Check them out HERE

Hope you can join  Allsorts for the Flags or pennants challenge!
This is my last challenge as a DT member for Allsorts as I have decided to step down from the DT.
Thank you dear Allsorts girls for the months together with you,
see you all around!
Big hugs to you all and enjoy your weekend :)
Have a nice day

Teddy Bo and Bea for my mother in law

I have the sweetest mother in law and my husband asked (belive it or not) if I could make a card from him and his sister just to tell her how special she is. My husband is not the sentimental, romantic guy so I was kind of shocked by the question :) He is (obvious!) a sweet man so ofcourse I had to make a card for him. It's not often he ask!
This is my card:
Image is the gorgeous sweet TEDDYBOBEA_088 from this week release
from Teddy Bo, found here.
Coloured with Copics
Papers from Poppy design
MS punch, snowflake and magnolia swirl
Text from pc
The snow falling is liquid pearls, stickles on the ground
The inside maybe not look like it matches the front, but I promise it does!

I think they are so cute!
The current challenge at Teddy Bo is: Christmas, but without red and green, so my card is pretty perfect here :)
This is the numbers of my Copics used:
Teddy Bo and Bea: E44-43-42-40, R20

Beak and feet: YR24-21-20

One layer card at Allsorts

This week we have a new challenge at Allsorts and we are having

One layer card!

Some of you think that it is easy peasy, and I think it was soooo hard!
This is my first try and I can see that I need more practice...

Not my kind of card, but if you head over to the Allsorts blog you can check the talented ladies in the DT's work, and they ROCK!
Not much to say about my card today.
I have used an embossing folder from TH and distressed the snowflakes. I added some bling in the center and some brown seam bindings and a snowflakecharm. The christmas text is from a rub on sheet from MF.
Corner rounder from MS.

If it wasn't for the thinking this card would have taken 15 minutes, BUT because I didn't know what to do...It took me two days...

Wishing you a fantastic weekend!

Black, white and...PINK

Today we have a brand new challege at Allsorts and the sweet Nicola has set the theme to

Black and white plus one!

I have struggled a lot to get my card done, because I didn't know what to do for this challenge!
I always try to be well prepared for all my DT work, but this time my mojo wouldn't come,-until yesterday!
I have made a birthday card with the lovely colours of black, white and pink
and I just love the way my card turned out!
I wanted to make a nice card for a lady that gives me alot of inspiration in my crafting,
so this is what I did for her:
The fantastic image is TEDDYBEA_162 from Teddy Bo
coloured with my Copics: W5-3-1-0 added glitter here and there on the image.
Papers from Teresa Collins called Bella girl, the dotty one is from a die cut sheet.

I have made a gate fold card, long time since I made one!
The card is closed with magnets and I used a TH hitch fastner for opening, like a door knob :)

Inside with the same papers, dublesided so this is the other side too.

Flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt
Swirl from Magnolia
The little metalflower is from Creative treasures and they have the most fantastic stuff!
Isn't Teddy Bea just lovely?

Hope you can join us this time at Allsorts and I can't wait to see your work!
This week we are sponsored by Sir Stampalot and as usual there is a great prize, so head over to the challenge blog  to look at that and all the beautiful inspiration from the DT

Have a lovely weekend
Tonight I am going out with my darling and some friends to see The Batman live show
