Finally friday!

I am so glad it is friday!!
The kids are off school for a vacation the whole next week and I will take all my four kids to visit my father in the north of Norway (Northpole ;))
Some of you that know me, know that I only have two kids, but I have two beautiful nieces that live next door who I am so lucky to see every day, and they are almost like daughters to me.
So monday morning I will take Gabriella 3years, Sebastian 11years, Sofie 12 years and Johanne 9 years with me for a two hours planetrip, 3 hours bustrip and a 2 hours long boattrip to se their grandfather!
I am so looking forward to it!!
I am sure our week will be filled with good memories, laughter, fresh air and a lot of good food :)

I have made another post it easelcard to show you...
I am so sorry to bother you with all theese, but I had to make one for each of my sisters, and I have three..
Here we go:
Papers from Basic Grey 6x6, Marjolaine paper pad
Flowers from WOC, painted with cracklepaint....
Both pearls and licquid pearls
"Olifants can fly", TeddyBoBea_073
coloured with copics

Isn't this a cutie!!
And it's perfect for my sister Heidi, not because she looks like an elephant,
 but because she loves all kinds of animals :)

Looks like this when it's folded.

Head over to the Teddy Bo blog to read about the last weeks happenings in the tower. We have all had a busy week, and are all very ready for the weekend!
If any of you don't know about the Fairy tale friday it's well worth a chance to find out, it's all about our secrets in the tower. About mine and Helle's potatochips boose, Edna's thing about doctors, (and men in general), Claires camels and twinsets, Tammy's new rubberoutfits and all the other crazy girls!
And maybe( and hopefully!) we have found some new friends???
See you around!!

For a little boy

Good morning friends!
Just swinging by to tell that it's still time to enter the current challenge over at Teddy Bo, "Things with wings"
My card today is a baptism card for a little boy, and I have used "Stork",  a gorgeous precoloured image from Teddy Bo, beeing released today.

Paper from Papirdesign
Flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt and the new ones from Thailand, bought at Bikuben last week.
Cut out with Spellbinders
Stars from a die cut and charms and pearls from stash.

A writing space, cut out with Spellbinders oval large and scalloped oval large.


This is the card folded out. Easy to put in a (little bigger) envelope to send as you just can fold it in the middle. The card can be closed with magets.

This is the weeks new graphics:


Have a great day everybody.
I'm off to bed for some beautysleep (Oh, God I hope that helps!*blink blink*)

Top Tips!

I made a card yesterday ordered from a friend of mine,
 for two of her coworkers.
I used the lovely TeddyBoBea_066 and I just love this image!
This was a really difficult card to make, as my copics went nuts and wouldn't blend and the yellow was way to yellow and so on and so on...
But in the end I am happy with it!
My papers are digis from Rasberry Road, Oopsie Daisy set.
Flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt and some new from Thailand that I bought at Bikuben, that really was lovely!
Lace, ribbon and pearls coloured with copics.
A lot of licquid pearls...
And a gorgeous butterfly from K&G

Haven't made an easelcard in a while so I thought is was on time!

She wanted the text in norwegian, english and polish (I'm sorry if thats the wrong word for it!)

Remember to check out the Teddy Bo blog today for theTeddy Top Tips as today Nicole has made a fabulous tutorial about colouring with prismacolour pencils. It looks so beautiful, and I so want to learn it!
And after today, I would gladly swap my copics with pencils, lol.
The current challenge at Teddy Bo is things with wings (like my butterfly!)
so come on over and join the fun!
And if you still haven't applyed for the DT position at Teddy Bo, you better hurry, only one day left!!

Have a nice day my friends!

Ohh I love this stamp!

Today I have made a birthday card with my newest image from Tickled Pink stamp, called Vintage Christmas Christina. She is so lovely!
I think she is just as perfect for a birthdaycard as she is for a christmas card. You will find her and the other lovely TPS images, digi (wohoo, digi week from 15-21 this month) and rubber here.

Ok, now on to my card, which I am super happy with!

I just love the colourcombo of brown and blue!


Have you seen the beautiful papers??
They are from the gorgeous 8x8 paperpack from Teddy Bo. You find it here.
The brown one is from my beloved birthdaygift from Laurie, and it's MME, lost and found.
Flowers are from WOC and some small rosebuds from Papirdesign.
Calendarstamp from LOTV.


The inside with a gorgeous and true sentiment.
Says: Friends are the most important ingredient in the Recipe of Life.
Swirls from Magnolia, bet you are sick of seeing it on all of my cards, but I love it!

Ok, my friends, just came home from the cinema with the kids. A quick shower and good night to them so I can be a little productive and make a card or three(I wish) :)
The rain is pouring down again, so no walking in the forest today...


Enter my card here:
TPS - rip something (I have ripped the paper under the lace, but the photos dosn't show to well..)
Pink Ink Sketch - A sketch by Kylie
Scrapperiket - use punches/dies

Allsorts DT Alter something

Happy saturday everybody :)
Thanks so much to all of you who joined me for my first challenge at Allsorts last week!
Loved to see all your creations. Head over to the blog to see who won and my Top. 5 list
This time it's my friend Nicole to set the challenge and she has chosen...

Alter or recycle something!

For me this is always a tough one, as I normally just do cards. This time I have altered a post it block and made a post it noteblock card. Some of you may have seen the tutorial I 've made over at the Teddy Bo blog, if not you find it here
I thought of altering a choclatebox, but after I have cut all the papers I wasn't quite happy with it, so I just eat the choclate and throw the box...So much better than eating a post-it block...lol

Anyhow here it is...
The image is the gorgeous Teddy Bo126 from Teddy Bo&Co. Text on envelope is a digi text from here. Teddy Bo is coloured with copics


And here the post it block, you sure don't wanna eat that,
so I found out it was a much safer choise...


My flowers comes from WOC and Kort & Godt, pearls from K&G

My beautiful papers comes from Papirdesign I think, aren't they just wonderful!

This week we are sponsored by Love to stamp and they are offering one Little darling stamp of winners choice. What a great price! I would sure love that one!


So come over to the Allsorts blog and check out my teamies fabulous work and join our fun!

Dream about tomorrow
Remember yesterday
Live today
