Another vintage card

I made this Friendship (Vennskap) card today.
I've used another lovely photo from art-e-zine, you'll find a link in my previous post. :)

The scanner didn't get the colors right, neither did I when I tried to adjust them in Photo Impact. :)

The stamp Vennskap is from
Norsk stempelblad
. And the stamp with the writing, under the paper, down in the left corner, is from Panduro.

Thanks for looking!

Flower card. :)

Here's a quick & easy flower card. I've stamped with Autumn leaves clearstamps. Added some Distress ink around the edges, mounted it on several layers of bazzill, and put a ribbon and some green pearls on it. There's no text on it on purpose. Sometimes you need a simple card that's not for a birthday or any other special occacion, and here it is. :)

My entry for the Friday Sketches # 5...

My card for this weeks
Friday Sketchers challenge.

Ok, this is definately not a card I'm happy with..!
I'm not good with layers on layers. I wish I was, because it looks beautiful when others make these kind of cards.

Friday Sketchers challenge #4

Here's my card for the
Friday Sketchers challenge #4

Once again our scanner mess things up a little bit. The colors are nicer IRL, and matches perfectly.. Well, you'll just have to use your imagination until I get a new scanner. :)

The stamps I've used are Chick from
and Gratulerer (congratulations) from
Kreativ Hobby
and the butterfly is from Panduro.

I've painted with Twinkling H2O's, and used Stickles on the chicks wings and the butterfly. :)

Thanks for looking! :)

Yaaaay! Delivery from Cropstop!

I just got these beautiful embossing folders today!
I've been waiting for them to have swiss dots and distressed stripes in stock at the same time, and finally I was lucky! And of course I couldn't resist putting another 2 folders in the shopping basket to..! :P

Later today I'll post a new card, where I've used the swiss dots folder, and the 2 freebie flowers I got from Cropstop. The colors of the flowers fit PERFECT for the card I was making! :) (Just have to wait for the stickles to dry. )

See you later! :)

This is amazing!

This video isn't exactly new, but I think it's worth seeing again, and again!
Can you believe this lady is 84(!!!) years old?!
It's a beatiful song to.


Today I've been to the dentist, getting my root canal finished. :S
I'm not to happy about going to the dentist. First you get the pain of all the work he's doing with your teeth, and then it REALLY hurts when you get to the part where he says what it costs... (Dentist appointments are pretty expencive in Norway.)

as you probably can tell.. ;)
