And let me know if you have any questions.
This is how the end result looks like:
DP, ribbon and sentiment from SU. Center kisses and lace from stash. I cut out some flowers with my flower punch. I stamped Young Cathrine with friends on aquarelle paper and coloured her with my SU markers and aquarelle brush. Used my nesties for the scallop circle for the insert. Added some shimmerz and stickles.
Wish you all a wonderful Friday. I will be away from the computer the whole day tomorrow, since we are going to have our very own little scrapevent here in my village. It's going to be a rather small event, but so fun.

The DPs are all from Stampin Up. I am never disappointed when I receive the DPs from them. I always love the colours, the pattern - yes everything. The little Miss Anya is coloured with copics. Sentiment and ribbon from SU. And yes - I got to use my new hatpins that Iris was so kind enough to help me order - thank you sweetie! - and also - it's funny we both thought of the same title for our cards with Miss Anya ;-)
Wish you all a wonderful day.

PS. Sorry for the dark picture, but it's still very dark here during the afternoon and evenings of course...
- for colours to work and blend well together
- for those of you that do not want to spend $60+ on a set of Copics

As I told you yesterday - I needed to ink up all the Anya's from RoP this weekend. They are so fun to colour and work with. Love this little posh ladies...... ;-)
Anya is coloured with copics. Cardstock and ribbon from SU, flowers from stash as well as spacers. The wonderful DPs from the Basic Grey paperpads - just can't get enough of them.
I wanted to keep the card clean and simple to make the DPs and Anya shine;-)
Hope your Monday was great!

Today I have been able to actually do the laundry, cook, play outdoors with Isac and Petar in the snow and create some cards. A perfect day!! ;-)) We even had our own After-
ski outside the house - enjoying the snow and the sun...hihi......
I was so happy that I got the time to ink up the sweet Miss Anya's from RoP. I think they are just perfect for teenagers and those of us that feels like teenagers ;-)) Coloured her with copics. CS from SU and DPs from the lovely Basic Grey paperpads.
Sentiment from SU. I also got to use my new nesties from Susana's and the corner shapabilities. Love, love, love them. Dew drops from RoP and heart charm from stash.
I chalked the edges - not sure if you can tell. And - I almost forgot - I got to use my new heart punch from SU.
Normally I complain that it's too dark when I get around to take my pics - well today the sun was shining through the window and - yes...you can tell by the shadows..... I decided to show it anyway - need to share some sunlight with all my readers...hihi.....

One day closer to Friday!!! Hurra!!!!
Then I hope to be able to create some more cards - actually I need to finish one tomorrow, since my Dad turns 65 on Sunday. I haven't figured out what I will do for his card or project.
I have however challenged myself to use the colour blue on the card above - not a colour that I use much. Don't know why, but that's how it is... I decided to use little Emilia with Heart from Anki's Sweethearts as my image (yes -I need to try the stamps myself of course...hihi...). Coloured her with copics and added stickles for highlights.
DP from a Swedish company called Inkido. I'm not sure if you can see what it says - but it's a lot of Swedish words like Kärlek(Love), Kram (Hug), Förälskelse (In love) etc.
Sentiment and ribbon from SU. I also got to use my very new punch from SU to cut out the three hearts with. Loved it! So an extra thank you to my sweet SU supplier - Elizabeth!
Flowers and lace from stash and yes - I added a pearl heart as well.
Well - to all my visitors - I love you much!
I have longing to participate for quite some time now, but have not had the time.

DP, sentiment and ribbon from SU. Young Cathrine available at Susana's - of course - . I also added Bella Baubles for a little bling. Nesties are a must - and I hope you have not missed that Susana has them in her store?

I can't wait until they will be back here in Sweden again this summer (they live with their Mom and Dad and 2 older brothers in Vienna. Their Mom is my darling cousin Helené (we almost grew up like sister's - since she is only 7 months younger than me). It will be so fun to see them play together with Isac. Isac talks about them and vice versa - even though we live far apart.
So for this card I decided to use Young Julia with Purse and Isac with skateboard. Malin loves to change clothes and dress up and Alex - well - I thought he would like the skateboard as much as Isac do...hihi.... DP, Cardstock and Sentiment "Hugs and kisses" from SU. Coloured with copics and highlights with some stickles of course :-) Ribbon, dew drops and lace from stash.
Well - as you know from my previous posting - these two little "Anki's Sweethearts" are available at Susana's. (Can't tell you how wonderful and unreal it felt at the same time to ink them up and see the exact same image that I have illustrated...hihi....
I also would like to thank you all for leaving such sweet comments about my very first set of illustrations. You really made this weekend special for me and my family.
I wish that your dreams will come true some day as well!

Well- finally I can tell you - it's me!!! My line is called "Anki's Sweethearts" and are exclusive for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. The above picture is the painting that I have donated to Susana for her PCP candy. It's called Felicia & Crabby.
This whole adventure started when Susana found my blog and we started to exchange emails. We became such good friends. I dared to ask her to have a look on my own sketches and give me her honest opinon. She liked them and that's when this whole adventure started!
It's just wonderful, but at the same time a little bit scary...hihi...... What will you think of them? Well - please make sure that you pop by for the reveal at 8 PST (this afternoon - European time) Make sure and check out the DT's wonderful creations with these cuties today (scroll down). Please also stop by the store to see the entire collection of these cuties right HERE! (released 8 PST)
I will be back and share some pics with you this afternoon - so please check in again.
And ladies - please be honest - I want to hear what you think and which one that you like most.
Kramisar from a very happy, but also a very nervous

I coloured Kyra with my copics and highlighted some spots with stickles and her wings with Shimmerz (that's what the flash reflected against.....). Shimmerz and stickles were also used on some spots on the DP - as you hopefully can see. Bella Baubles were added as "blings".
Ribbon and Rub-on from my Stampin Up stash as well as the white lace.
I hope your week has started well and that you will have time to play with Suzanne's sketch. If you decide to - please make sure that you upload your card on PCP or SCS using the keyword "TIOT5". Also - make sure that you check out the rest of the DTs cards at Susana's blog.

This week we received the task to create a card for Valentine - using a stamp that you would not directly associate with Valentine's Day.
I decided to ink the cute little Daisies Shy Bear from Susana's. He's been waiting for some ink since a couple of weeks ago - so I heard him calling for me ;-) The lovely DP from Laura Ashley had to be in the background as I let him take the center stage!
I coloured him with my copics - added some Shimmerz (angel white on the flowers and coffe for his fur) and stickles. Ribbon and text from SU. Flowers and heart from stash. Bella Baubles from Susana's.
If you would like to participate - then upload your card on PCP or SCS - use the key word "TIOT4".
Looking fwd to see your cards and don't forget to see the other DT cards on Susana's blog.

PS. Sorry for the flash reflecting in all the blings and shimmerz....
