Christmas Creatures

This week at Allsorts Tracy chose Christmas Creatures. So any creatures in Christmas surroundings will do. I used a LOTV-bear on a white embossed cardstock on red card base. Simple but rather effectful. For the hat and the sentiment I used Festive Berries Distress Ink.

Allsorts - Halloween

We're closing in on Halloween so naturally that is the challenge theme at Allsorts this week. I used a Tiddly Ink image and made a card in green and black. Not that we celebrate Halloween particularly in Sweden but spooky things are fun all the time :)

We are sponsored with two gorgeous stamps by Little Claire so good luck to you all.

Other challenges:
Sweet stampin - Bingo (magic, witch, black)

Allsorts - Think Pink

This week at Allsorts the theme is to Think Pink. I made a card with Melissa Frances paper and my beloved Sizzix daisy die. The jury is still out on the black background for my cards, but at least I have given it a fair shot :)

We are sponsored this week by Swedish House Crafts and even have some lovely guest DT-work from them on our challenge blog.
Off today to some thrift shop hopping with my wee one, never know when one might stumble on a bargain :)

Allsorts - Trees and leaves

This week's challenge at Allsorts is to feature trees and/or leaves on your creation. I coloured the die cut leaf bought on E-bay with distress inks Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Dried Marigold to get the autumn look. I'm trying a black background to the photo but I'm not sure that I like it.
Anyway, we are sponsored by Marianne Design this week, so a lovely prize for a lucky winner.

Well, now I'm off to my elder one and their newly bought house just outside of town - to smell the head of my beloved grandchild and to clear some waterspouts, trim some thujas and paint a wall with the most hidious wallpaper ever, that needs to be covered immediately :)
