Better late than never?

I had some unblogged cards laying on my computer and since it’s raining and everyone in my family is kind of busy with their own stuff at the moment I thought it would be a great time to get ahed and fill up some empty days in the blog.

Here is a card I made from the leftovers from a bookmark I blogged earlier. I just added some stickles and inlayed the XOXO and the feather in the backgound that I think I might have made with distress inks (I honestly can’t remember). I just added a simple stamped greeting from Hero Arts.


I got inspired by a facebook challenge, one night one challenge. The theme was book cards, and we should add something stamped, some lace and flowers. I made this card using an old stamp from Some Odd Girls. I colored it with Copics and used the Pen Pals collection from Pink Paislee.


I usually don’t do these one night challenges because i always is short of time and end up panicking and this time too. When I had made the card base and colored my image I had like 20 min left to decorate and photograph and add the card to the gallery. Pheeeeww! I was so stressed out! Luckely I had some kind of plan in my head otherwise I would never have made it. And guess what? I won! I got some really nice scrap goodies in an envelope a few days later, among other things a cute stamp from SOG. I love those stamps and now I have two. Yay! (I’m really bad at buying stamps to color, I always end up getting a new set of sentiments for some stupid reason. I just never learn.)


That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Let’s see if I can edit another video too maby. Fingers crossed :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
