Fairytale friday, last for 2011

Gooood morning friends :)
The year 2011 is soon ended and we are about to enter 2012. 
I found out I wanted to write down some of the things I am happy for

I have  had a fantastic year.
I am so happy that I have my family, my husband and our kids, my parents and my sisters around me. Thats means the world to me.

And I got my crafting life,- my blog, my crafting space, my design teams and my wonderful friends all around the world. I enjoy life the way it is right now.
I have almost blogged a year now and it has been a joy from day one. When I look at the cards I made when I started my blog I can see that I have learned a lot. My colouring skills are much better now because of all the inspiration, all the tips from other crafters, all the tutorials I have watched and of course all the colouring I have done :)

I have been so lucky to be a part of some fantastic design teams in 2011.
I was with Allsorts for 5 months, thank you Brenda for a fantastic time with you girls!
I was in the DT at Sukkersøtt for 6 months, and enjoyed every second of that too. Thank you Nancy for everything!
Right now, I am in Tickled Pink Stamps DT and love to work with theese fantastic images.
 I have recently been lucky to become a member of the CopicMarkerNorge DT too, a really fantastic group with talented Norwegian crafters that I really look forward to work with.
And last, but not least,- I am part of Teddy Bo design team. From day one I have loved the bears and making card with theese images is a pleasure. So thank you Gayle for letting me be a part of a fantastic team, letting me work with the most beautiful graphics and most of all thank you for all friendship from you and the rest of the design team. MWAH!!

That was a little of my thoughts ;)
This is my card with the same image that I used yesterday,
 but in totally different colours:

The back

The inside with the text I have got from Maritha a long time ago.
Gabriella said that this was her card, so the text is just perfect for both her and the lovely Teddy Bea in a Cat costume ;)

Image is TEDDYBEA_103 again...LOVE it!
You find it here
Coloured with Copics as usual
Papers from Panduro
Seambinding and flowers from WOC and Maritha :)
Blingswirls from Prima and a hommade hatpin from my friend
Mini Postage stampset from Whimsy Stamps

I hope you find the time today to read Colettes fabulous fairytale from our life at the Teddy Bo tower, I love fridays even more because of this!
You find it here a little later...

This will be my last post in 2011, so I will take the time to wish you all
A very happy, healthy and crafty new year

Love and hugs

Hi friends!
I have made a card today with the lovely Teddy Bea as a kitten, and I think she is fantastic!
Gabriella saw this image on one of Chrissy's ( a Teddy Bo fan ;))cards and she started to cry when I said I didn't have that image..But mom, I love it she cryed...
Sooo like the kind mother I am, I asked the lovely Teddy Bo boss herself if she please could help me out! Of course bloglands best boss did that and the monster fell alsleep with the graphics in her hand.. She has made a lot of "cards" with this image and today it was my turn :)
I think this is a perfect image for baby cards to, my talented friend Maritha did one for a baby girl and you find it here, it is fantastic!
Here is my card

Image is TEDDYBEA_103 from Teddy Bo found here
Coloured with Copics
Papers from MME, lost and found (I love these papers!)
Fancyful Flourish from Cheery Lynn Design
The white flowers comes from Kort og Godt and the blue/green one i have made with a die from Marianne design.
Old bookpage from a book I got as a gift from my mother

I got a present from my sweet and so talented blogfriend Laurie for Christmas with two lovely paperpads from MME and this is one of them. You are so kind Laurie and always know what I like! MWAH!!

My white tea box

Both sides has beautiful christmas poems from North Star Stamps

The top is decorated with flowers from WOC, Kort og Godt and Creative treasures. Silk ribbon and bells from stash. And cinnamon from the kitchen ;)

It is quite easy and very much fun to make
and in my opinion, a perfect little gift for a tea lover!

Hope you find the time to join Teddy Bo and our White christmas challenge and I hope I have inspired you with my teabox.
