A card for Irene

Yesterday I did make a card for a really sweet lady, Irene, just to wish her a good summer.
This is the card I made for Irene:
I have used Tilda with armful of tulips from Magnolia, since tulips is her favorite flower.
My flowers are from Prima, Papirdesign and Kort og Godt. Old bling.

The beautiful papers are from Prima, the botanical collection and some orange from my old stash to match.
And,-look at my new made by-stamp! I LOVE IT! Ordered it from Scrapmagasinet. Good service, cheap and fast, what more can you ask for? ;)

Inside is made from the same collection of papers, but in blue, I think they are so nice!

The textstamp is from LOTV, old, but I still love it :)
I have sewed all my edges, I think it looks so nice, and it's really fun.

Enter my card here:
Simon says stamp - show a word
Card and scrap - bruk puncher eller dies
Anonyme scrappere - sommer :)
Stampavie and more - more than 3 layers

Wishing you all a good night :)
Hugs, J

3 images from Teddy Bo and Co
Isn't that super or what!

I'm so happy for this!

Going to the physiotherapist with my darling to see if he can do anything with his knees. For you that don't know it: He did Trondhjem-Oslo, a big Norwegian cyclerace on saturday. 540 km long and he and his team used 18 hours and 19 min. After 80 km his knees startet to make trouble, but he didn't listen to much to his body and did finish the race and now he hardly can't walk...
The nurse in me wasn't to happy for him, but I guess he just really wanted it, so what can I do :)...
But I'm very proud of him...
My darling on the left side. This was before his knee problems started.

Back later with a new card :)

Another boycard :)

I really like making boyscard. Not that I don't love flowers and pink ;) but sometimes it's just fun to use other colors and try out other stuff. And this week Sketchy colors has a challenge with the colors olive, mint and cream, so I just had to give it a try :)
For this card I've used the cool pirate Frankie from Tickled Pink Stamp wich I think is the perfect boy image!
I have used papers from Majadesign, Pion and some old that I can't remember. Mint, cream and olivgreen Bazzill for the layers.
Front and back :)
And yesterday I did order my own made by Jill stamp and I'm looking forward to get it, but until then I use my old and handwrite my name :)
Very simple inside...
Cool pirateship from Kort og Godt, old ribbons and some bling here and there, just couldn't help myself ;)
Colored with copics as usual

Entering here:
