More B for ..... Mid-Way reminder for ABC Christmas Challenge.

We are halfway through Wilma's 

B for Bows or Boys

challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge, and it's time 
to give you some more inspiration.

For sponsor information please take a look here.



    I have used a cute image from Stampavie ,
called 'Mistletoe and Mice'.
The pretty papers are from Glitz, I love the deep red.


The mistletoe in the right corner is made with a die
from Magnolia and decorated with pearls.

The red ribbon is from my stash, it's beautiful,
but difficult to make a proper bow with!


I hate my own handwriting- so when I saw this sentiment at Bikuben 
from Papirdesign, it jumped into the basket quicker than anything else.

The border punch is a new one, I think it was in
the same shopping basket as the sentiment.

I have been a lousy blogger since Christmas, 
but a brilliant crafting stuff shopper!


Well, here is the usual back side.


 For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies,
please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog.

Special Cut, DT card for HM&FMC.

It's Monday again, I can't belive how fast times flies.

have a brand new challenge for you,

This fortnight it’s our lovely teamie, America's turn to choose the theme:

Anything Goes With A Special Cut.

(use special cutting dies, show off a special paper cut, 
any CUTS will do even haircuts.... lol)



My Special Cut is a folded card called a swing card or a  flip card.

I had to try it out in Copy paper a couple of times,
before it looked/turned out the way I wanted to.

But I'm pleased with the result.

The tricky thing was getting the die at the right place,
if you make a square instead of a shape, I think
it's much easier.


The image is called 'Blowing Dandelions', I think it's
one of my favourite House Mouse stamps.

I have added some glitter on to the seed.


The butterflies are made with a die from Die Namics.

The papers are a mix of Basic Grey (sugared) and Maja Design (Friends) 


I found the sentiment so very perfect for the other side.


My teamies have some wonderful ideas how to interpret the 
'Special Cut' theme. Please jump to the HM&FMC and be inspired.




We are honored and want to give a very warm welcome to these amazing Sponsors;

B for Bows or Boys, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

ABC Christmas Challenge is here with our B challenge.
 
Firstly thank you to all of you that applied to be an 
ABC Christmas challenge teamie! 
We were so thrilled so many of you applied,
 however it made our job difficult to choose.

The five lovely new teamies we've chosen to join our happy DT family are:

Please give them a warm welcome. 


 We have a new challenge for you this fortnight
 and Wilma is our host this time.

Our new challenge theme is

B for Bows or Boys!


You can choose whatever you like best-
maybe both- but remember it has to be 
Christmas related.




I went for the 'Boy' theme.
I love this 'Little Shepherd' from Stampavie.

The papers are from Bo Bunny, they are great together with kraft.



The stars are made with a Spellbinder die, and run through a 'wave-making' tool.
 ( Haven't got a clue what the right word is!! )

The ticket sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

The backside with a big star and my personal stamp
and design papers, just like the card front.






I have used this great sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge.

New Year's resolution; eat more chocolate! MW reminder for HM&FMC.

Hello and Happy Monday, a new week is waiting.

Today I have a quick reminder for our on going challenge at


Christine is hosting this first challenge of the year 
and the theme she has chosen is:

New Beginnings!

We have many great sponsors this time,
please visit the HM&FMC to have a look.



My card is made with this faboulous Gruffie Bear, 'Beary Full of Truffles'.
It's one of my new stamps-( from Dorte to Dorte at Christmas),
and I think it could be great as a New Year's resolution card;
'Eat More Chocolate!'


There's a hidden  tag behind the image, with the text
 'Only the best for a chocolate lover'.

Added to the tag there is a heart charm.

The papers are from Maja Design.


The back side with my personal stamp.




I have used this sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

50 års fødselsdag.

Vi skal til 50 års fødselsdag i aften, og jeg var
hurtig til at sige at jeg nok skulle ordne kort.


 Og det blev et kort som ikke er helt typisk mig.
Ingen stemplet farvelagt motiv!

En blomst lavet med en die fra Memory Box.
Jeg var så smart at jeg limede dobbeltklæbende
tape på før jeg kørte igennem Cuttlebuggen.

Ellers havde det ikke været så nemt at lime de tynde stilke.



Jeg kan godt li dette visdomsord, husker ikke hvor stemplet er fra.
Det er stemplet inden i kortet.


Helt enkel bagside.

Mid-Way reminder for ABC Christmas Challenge.

 I have another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge
where the theme is:

A for Animal. 
 

This time I have tried to make a CAS card.

I found this beautiful card at Deborah's place,
and had to make my own version of it.

Easy to make, cheap to send in the mail !

I have used one of my new Penny Black stamps,
and coloured with my Prisma Colour Pencils.

(Well not much colouring on this image in fact)

The snowflakes are made with a Memory Box die.
I have finally ordered the  Metal Adaptor Plate, hopefully
 the wonderful dies will be easier to cut with in the future.


The image is called 'Snow Joy'.

I have added Stickles on as snow.
I was tempted yo try to use Flower Soft 'Polar White'
as snow, but I was unsure how to use it.


Simple back with my personal stamp.



Our sponsor is Stamp Fairy




offering one lucky  random winner a $10 gift certificate.

The DT have made some gorgeous cards, so hop on over to the

En hjertelig hilsen.


Tro det eller ej men jeg har haft gang
i et af mine nye stempler. Der var pindsvinet
fra Penny Black der fristede mest.



'Heart Allover' , hedder det.


Der er ikke brugt særlig meget mønsterpapir på dette kort.
Kun en lille rest fra Echo Park, som lige passede- med lidt fusk!

Den buede ramme er fix og færdig fra butikken,  det var 
en kortpakke med lidt forskelligt som jeg var heldig at
vinde i en candy hos Elain, tusind tak.



 Jeg ved ikke helt om denne type kort har et navn,
Men det kan stå af sig selv- som et easelkort,
Men det mangler 'bunden'.



Jeg har lavet plads til at skrive på bagsiden, jeg
har bare ikke fået limet det hvide ark på endnu.
