MDUC Challenge #77

Today I've made a box for the challenge at Magnolia Down Under.... They had a really great challenge this week called "A gift for you". Umm, this week... No acctually it's open for more than that so there is no time to waste... If you don't feel like participating, at least check out the DT work, as always a fantabulous collection of inspiration!


This is my contribution for this challenge and tired as I am of Christmas colors and snow I had to make it "spring-yish"... :-D



I've used an older Tilda image and colored her as a bumble bee.



i think this Tilda fits perfectly with the sentiment from Rox Stamps. It's a poem and it swedish it rimes, but it's kind a hard to translate that as well so here is just a word by word translation:

The bumble bee can't fly
because it's wings are to small
But the bumble bee doesn't care
it flies anyway
Tell me little bumble bee
how that escape is made
The bumble bee only mumbles
you can do anything you want...

This will be a gift for a friend who needs some encouragement...


The flowers are from Wild Orchids...



The delicious inside... :-D




Hope you are all enjoying these days before the new year... We are having my husband's brother and his family over for the weekend. They just had a baby girl - Tove - and it will be a joy to have them here. My boys are so excited to see their cousin again. I think that the sun is acctually coming out today - what a sight for sore eyes... ;-D It has been snowing here for days and days and my husband has had so shovel snow from the roof... I just have to tell you as well that he love that, and I do to, so we "struggle" to be the one to go out and shovel... (However I willingly let him do the roof...)

Have a super new year's celebration and a fantastic new crafting year!!

Nja, kanske inte riktigt meeeen jag måste ju tipsa om att Mia har dragit igång rean inne på Hobbyhärvan.... Wow! säger jag bara...

Här är en glimt av dagens kort som jag inspirerar med idag... Vårligt, inte sant?



Jag har hunnit med en hel del pyssel i dagarna, faktiskt har det blivit en hel del LOs... Ska försöka lägga ut dem framöver liksom mitt bidrag till en utmaning....

GDT Digiells: A new GDT Call!!!

Check out the DigiBells blog today because it's time for a new guest-DT call!! I must say I had sooo much fun trying this out and I'm now hooked on digi images... They are sooo much fun to work with and it's perfect that you can flip them or make them different sizes... Why don't you try it out? The call ends at January 2nd, but please pay attention to the time zone-thingy... :-D

You can use any image from Elisabeth Bell which includes some of Whiff of Joy's images, Belles n'n Whistles, Ladybug and Friends among others.

I've made a Christmas Gift to show you today. I've altered a box of toffifee, but I cheated a little... I made a whole new wrapper around - read somewhere that this was easier than covering the old one and I have to agree...



I've used an image from Belles n' Whistles called Merry Sledding. Isn't she cute? She lookes like she's having soo much fun!



I recently got the sentiment but I can't recall wherefrom... Nevermind... It's in swedish and means "merry christmas and a happy new year". The papers is from Magnolia and the swirl as well.... (I borrowed the swirl and the scalloped spellbinder from my friend Lena - thank's!) The flowers are from Wild Orchid's Craft.



I'm also entering this box into Bunny Zoe's Challange this month; Sparke and Shine!



I wish all of you a terrific ending to this year!!



Ohh, and don't forget to join in my blogcandy... I celebrate my first year as a blogger!! :-D

GDT Digibells: A new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World!

Oh, my!! Christmas for me is over for this time... We celebrate on the 24th so all the food is eaten, the candy has "vanished" (lol), the presents are all opened and Santa has gone for his vacation.... However, there is on thing that's good about all of this and that is that is once again time for a new challenge over at Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog.

I know I said I did my last posting as guest designer for the DigiBells the other day, but I only ment the DigiBells blog. This is my last GDT project for . But i do have some great news to share.... I've was invited to stay on as GDT for the release of Elisabeths new digi in January and I was sure quick to say YES!!! I'll get the details of the release out to you later. Now it's high time to show you my project for this new challenge; WINTER!




I've altered two boxes of chocolate. It's called Ice Chocolate (Ischoklad) here in Sweden and a Christmas speciality. The image I've used is the latest from Belles 'n Whistles called "Merry Sledding", isn't she the CUTEST ever??? You find her and all the SnowBabies in Summer's shop. She's colored with distress refils. One of the images is cut out with a Spellbinder.



I've hid a little tag behind the image...




The papers I've used are from wonderful Bo Bunny, one of my favorites.... I've stamped with a swirl from Reprint around the paper. I've used eyelets at the end of the papers and made it up like a coursette so that I didn't have to match up and try to make an extra piece as the paper was to short to go all the way around. The gorgeous ribbon is from Hobbyhärvan", .



I've used flowers, pearls and Stickles for embellishments!



I do hope you all have/have had a very Merry Christmas and best wished for a safe and fantastic new Year!! And remember... You can use any Elisabeth Bell image to enter this challenge; digital, Belles n' Whistles, Whiff of Joy and so on... Just check out Elisabeth's own blog to see her art....

DT Hobbyhärvan: Mera LO-dags...

Hua, hur går det för er med alla julbestyr där ute??? Jag trodde jag låg ganska bra till men inte... *suck* Jodå, alla julklappar är klara och paketerade men resten... Skinkan kokar just nu på spisen och vörtbrödsdegen jäser i sin bunke. MEN ska också hinna med lite köttbullar, tomtegröt, lussebullar samt det sista med städningen... Detta innebär dammsugning, golvtorkning, skurning av kök och badrum... Fattar inte hur jag kunde känna som att allt var under kontroll igår...

Tar och visa en LO innan jag stressar vidare... Det är lilleman förra vintern... Han är uppe på vedbodtaket och klättrar och vinkar till mamma från nocken.... Jaja, inte ni kopplar in socialen så står maken precis bredvid (dock utom bild...).



Ha en härlig kväll och hoppas ni hinner mysa lite!!

DT Scrappekammeret Dags för en ny utmaning/ Time for a new challage!

Det är dags för en ny utmaning hos Scrappekammeret och det är att låta sig inspireras av ett recept! Jag tyckte detta var hur kul som helst och hade kunnat göra massor av inspirationsalster, men... Det här blev mitt inspirationsalster:

It's time for a new challenge at Scrappekammeret och it is to be inspired by a recipe. I love this challange and could have made tons of inspirational projects, but.... This is it!



Jag har inspirerats av ett glöggrecept. Textstämpeln har jag lånat av Mari - tusen tack!! Jag skulle så klart ha följt receptet och gjort min egen glögg men jag hann inte!! Så här före jul är det ju tusen saker som ska göras...

I've been inspired by a recipe for glühwine, the sentiment is acctually a recipe for that and I borrowed it from Mari - thank's!! I should ofcourse have followed the recipe and made my own glühwine but there was nooo time, it's all so stressed out before Christmas.



I alla fall så har jag gjort ett kort och ett altrad russinburk.... Tillsammans med en flaska glögg är det ju en perfekt "gå-bort-present" så här i juletid... Inte sant?

Anyways... I made a card and altered a box of raisins, perfect to give away at Christmas time with a blottle of glühwine... Don't you think? Mabye the raisins need som explanation... Here in Sweden we drink out glühwine hot with raisins and almonds in... Delicious!



Lite fler bilder..... / Here are some more pictures....



The whole card...



Summary:

Images: Kitchen Tilda from Magnolia, The singing angel from Gilian Roberts and the peeking Angel from Sarah Kay
Colors: Distress Refils...
Papers: Gorgeous, gorgeous Maja Design... Hope you don't tire of hearing me say that... ;-)
Embellis: Ribbons from Hobbyhärvan, lovely flowers from Wild orchids, pearls and Stickles
Sentiment: A glühwine recipe borrowed from Mari
Other stamps: The swirl around the paper is from Reprint

DT Hobbyhärvan.... LO-dags!!

Idag har jag något att visa er... Klicka på bilden så kommer ni till dagens alster på Hobbyhärvan.... :-)




Jag återkommer lite senare med ytterligare ett inlägg, så kika gärna förbi igen!

GDT DigiBells: Not too sweet...

.... not to sour, just to pink... Famous line from the movie "sound of Music"... You remember?? I LOVE that movie.... Julie Andrews has the most divine singing voice and the children are all so adorable! But, here I am going on and on about this when I really have something to show you... My last posting as guest designer for Elisabeth Bells' digital images. I don't feel sad at all though - it's been great fun and a huge honor for me to be working alongside some of my greatest sources of inspiration!! It's also been an almost bigger honor to be able to design for Elisabeth, one of my favourite image makers! Love her work!!! Thank you all for letting me be apart of your team - it has meant sooo much to me!!

Today I'm going to show a Christmas card that I made with Elisabeth's adooooorable image Eden's 2nd Christmas. I think it must be my favourite... Here it is...



Now do you get why I started off babbling about Sound of Music? It's PINK!! Yes, pink... Why not make a Christmas card in a non-traditional color?? I acctually already sent this to my sister who loves pink... Even her laptop is pink!! *lol*


Close up....



Embellis... Flowers from WOC... Cutest ever little charm and some other silver thingies...



This card fit's the challenge over at Wild Orchid's Craft - pink, white and silver...

Har precis kommit hem från jobb/dagis och räddat mina barn ur snöhögen. De ville absolut vara ute på baksidan när vi kom hem och där är snön knädjup på mig... De tumlade runt en stund sedan blev det bara skrik och mamma fick lov att sätta på sig stövlarna och rädda barnen... :-D Nu sitter de så fint i soffan, äter äpple och tittar på Pippi. Ska straxt gå och laga mat men har igen aning om vad jag ska hitta på... *suck* det är ju sååååå trist att hitta på maträtter.... Hoppas allt är bra med er där ute!!

Award... Tack!

Jag har fått en award!! Jag blir alltid lika glad för dessa awards som då och då skickas till mig! Denna gång har jag fått den här awarden av Maritha (Magnoliastämplad... forever!!) Klicka på awardbilden så kommer ni till hennes blogg. Hon är ruskigt duktig och en stor inspirationskälla så det betyder mycket att få denna award av just henne!



Det medföljer förpliktelser också, med denna award och det är att jag ska berätta 3 saker om mig själv och skicka den vidare till 3 personer. Ruskigt svårt!!

3 saker om mig:

* längtar mig blå till julafton för att få se mina pojkars ögon tindra ikapp med alla ljus*
* proriterar pyssel före en massa "måsten" hemma, typ städning*
* blir varm i hjärtat när storkillen kommer och säger att han vill pyssla med mamma hellre än att gå ut i garaget med pappa*

Inte märks det väl att jag är en småbarnsmamma mitt i livet?? ;-)

Denna award får gå vidare till....


Louise....
Wow!! Vilken tjej!! Helt underbara alster och DT typ överallt... ;-)

Grethe....
En nyvunnen inspirationskälla och DT hos Scrappekammeret... Fixar allt från kort med eller utan motiv till sååå läckra LOs
