Jeg glæder mig i denne tid.....


Nej, jeg har ikke tænket mig at citere fra Peters Jul',
bare ta det helt roligt.

Jeg har bare lyst til at vise jer hvilke herligheder fra nær og fjern
som venter på mig når jeg kommer hjem fra job i dag.



En hel masse dejlige kort, de fleste er sikkert hjemmelavede.

Jeg fylder nemlig år i dag ;)
 Ikke noget rundt, bare endnu et år, men det er grund nok til at fejre.


Først skal jeg lave mig en kop kaffe og så skal jeg åbne kuverter
og nyde hvert eneste kort og hilsen

Hvor heldig kan man være?

Jeg skal nok dele dem med jer senere, men det bliver ikke i dag.

More Design Paper, Mid Way reminder for ABC Christmas Challenge.



We are half way trough the 

D for Design Paper 

challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge, where our lovely host is Carissa.

All that we are asking you to do is create a Christmas project that features some of
 those fantastic papers that you have in your stash.




Once again I have used 'Toymaker Elf' from Kraftin' Kimmie. 
And the papers this time is- also- from MME.

The fact is that I coloured two images when I
made the 'C for Case one of  Us' card.

Very convenient with a finished coloured image when you are in a hurry.

The round sentiment is from Catslife Press.



The back side with my personal stamp.

I love this border punch from Martha Stewart.

Things With Wings, DT card for HM&FMC

Heather is today's host and the theme is

Things With Wings.

 Use something on your creation that has wings,
it could be birds, ladybirds or even butterflies.


 Returning last night at 1am from a weeks winter vacation in Austria,
is the reason why today's post is a bit short and why I haven't
been around so much lately. I'll try to catch up during the day,
between unpacking and doing the laundry . Ykk!



My card is rather simple.

 I have used a favourite House Mouse image of mine and papers 
from my favourite company, Maja Design. 'Fika' they are called. 

I love the purple and kraft together.

Ribbon from Panduro, two wooden made butterflies,
pearls and a die cut made with the 'Fancy Ribbon Threader' ,
and the card has made it self!!

Easy peasy.


For this challenge we have three fabulous sponsors:
 





Giving a $25 gift certificate.



 Giving a $10 gift certificate.



and



Giving a £ 10 gift voucher.


Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous creations for your inspiration.
So hop on over to the HM&FMC to see them.

D for Design Paper, DT card for ABC Christmas Challenge.

I have just realized that today's DT card for  
ABC Christmas Challenge is a perfect match for me this week,
I'm in Austria skiing, so change the cute Edwin from Magnolia 
with me and you have the picture!

The fact is; I'm having a great time here with my family and
 my sister and her wonderful family.
The slopes here are fantastic and the weather the first
couple of days couldn't be better, sun, sun and sun!

The people are so nice and helpful, and the food (and Glüwine) super. 

Well, enough about me and back to the new challenge.
  
Carissa is todays host, the letter is D

D for Design Paper. 



I have used the cute' Edwin With Snowflakes' from Magnolia 
for my card, Edwin is coloured with Distress Inks.

The design papers are from Echo Park.
'Wintertime' I think they are called.

 

The trees are made with a die from Magnolia and embossed
 with the 'Swiss Dot' embossing folder.

I have added some Stickles onto the snow
and to Edwin's hat



At the backside I have used a new snowflake die of mine.
I have cut it out in some glittery paper
and glued a 'handmade by' on top of it. 



We are so lucky having two fabulous sponsors for this challenge.


First out is our own Lacey from Stamp and Create



Lacey is giving one lucky winner a $25 gift certificate

.:Drip Drop Tilda:.

Nogle gange lurer jeg på om der er noget galt med mig!

Jeg kan se en die, noget papir eller et stempel på en blogrunde,
og tænke 'Den SKAL jeg ha'. Og så finder jeg ikke roen før
genstanden er i hus. Er det bare mig??


 Drip Drop Tilda fra Magnolia er et typisk eksempel.

Det der blev lidt ekstra besværligt med netop hende er
at hun er en special udgave som bare sælges i Holland 

Det hjalp lige lidt; bestillingen måtte afsted.
Og nu er hun her.


Jeg valgte at afprøve mine Grand Nestabilities ved samme
 lejlighed og lavede et rundt easel kort.
 De præsenterer sig altid så fint.

Jeg har valgt at holde kortet relativ enkelt.
Papiret er fra Kaiserkraft.

Se den lille paraply charm, sød ikke?


 Jeg lavede plads til en tag i bunden af kortet.
Ellers er det lidt af et problem med skriveplads på et easel kort.


Jeg var da også nødt il at vise bagsiden.
Den er nok så enkel, lidt papir og mit 'Dorte' stempel.

Copy Cat, Mid Way reminder for ABC Christmas Challenge.


Wednesday again, I can't believe how fast times flies.
I'm here with a mid-way reminder for this forthnights challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge.

Our challenge this week is being hosted by Emma, and the theme is
C for CASE one of us.
1.  Look through the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and pick
one of the DT's cards that you love.
  

2.  Make your own great Christmas card based on the card you picked.
 You could be inspired by a sketch, a gorgeous colour combo or a fab embellishment.
 Please show us the card you have CASE'd.




Ever since I saw Carissa using the  'Toymaker Elf' from Kraftin' Kimmie,
 I wanted to have it myself.

And on one of my shopping rounds he
just jumped up in the basket himself!

The papers are from MME, I love the vibrand colours.


The round sentiment is from LOTV, and the brads are from my stash.

It's difficult to get saturated and bright colours with Distress Inks.



A look at the back with my personal stamp.






Here is Carissa's wonderful card I have CASE'd. 
I love her colouring and her choice of papers.

The card is from the 'V for Vibrand Colours' in October 2012.




This time the challenge are sponsored by the lovely 
Krista Smith, from Saturated Canary.


Prize is 2 digi's from Krista's shop for the winner.



You can find a lot of inspiration at our blog from my talented teamies.

Have fun with C for CASE one of us.

I love you sew much, DT card for HM&FMC

A new challenge is ready for you at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

I Love You Sew Much.

Show us your stitching real or faux,
or make a creation with an image featuring sewing.

My teamies has made some wonderful cards for this challenge,
 please take a look here and have some inspiration..


 I have used a new little friend of mine, 'A Stitch In Time
 Look how concentrated he is.

The papers are from Echo Park.

The sentiment says ' Loving Wishes'


If you take a closer look at the needle, you might see it's a real one.
Maybe I have to write a warning to the receiver.


 I couldn't resist making my own embellishments.
 I made three small embroidery threads.


The back side of the card.



We are sponsored by



Simon Says Stamp who are giving away a $25 Gift Certificate.

A Tip For You.

I have manipulated my image a bit and will show you how:


I've taken some of  the stamped image away like this. 

 Adhesive tape over the part of the subject you do not want.
Ink up the stamp and remove the tape.



And you are ready to stamp.

Here is the original to the right and my manipulated one at the left.

Bare for sjov.


I dag har jeg lavet et kort bare fordi jeg havde lyst..

Jeg har været i tvivl om jeg skulle erstatte min Cuttlebug
med en stansemaskine der kunne ta større dies, så jeg havde
muligheden for at lave kort med forskellige former.

Løsningen er føreløbig blevet at jeg har købt et sæt
Og Cuttlebuggen er stadig i hus.


 Første kort med en die fra Go Kreate ser sådan ud.

Kortet er inspireret af min DT kompis Annette.

Stemplet er fra LOTV, jeg må med skam indrømme
at det er første gang det er i nærheden af stempelsværte.

Papiret er en gammel traver fra Basic Grey, 'Bitter Sweet'.

Jeg syntes først gæsset var en kanon god ide,
men med resultatet foran mig ved jeg ikke helt....

Jeg har prøvet at pille det af, men det går ikke!



Bagsiden er hel enkel, og ikke har jeg pyntet inden i kortet.
Men jeg har hygget mig.

Nu sker der ikke noget her på bloggen før mandag,
hvor jeg har et DT kort klar for den nye udfordring hos
House Mouse & Friends.

Jeg har arbejds week-end og da bliver der ikke plads 
til så meget andet end job og familie.

a challenge from June 2012;  Krista from Saturated Canary
 was one of our sponsores.

So here is my new version of my card from last year.
Pretty much the same or what do you think?

Pearls, angel charm and ribbon are from my stash.


An adorable image from Saturated Canary, called 'Christmas Angel',
and some lovely papers from my favorite company, Maja Design.

Once again I have used my new Martha Stewart punch,
'Swirling Lace'.  I hope I don't wear it up!





Here is the card I've CASED, it's my card from the L for Lyrics challenge in 2012.
