Happy B'day Alex and Malin

Actually - it's a little bit early to say Happy B'day, but Alex and Malin turns 3 early March and I needed to finish the card for them now - since they will be on vacation for a couple of weeks with the rest of their family.

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!

Kramisar - Anki

Tusen takk for koselig hilsen inne hos meg!
Og ikke minst gratulerer med stemplene. WOW så nydelige de var!Så utrolig flink du er - jeg er kjempeimponert. Og disse stemplene er nå kommet på ønskelisten min. Så utrolig søte de er.
Og kortet du har laget var kjempeflott. Vakre farger og detaljer! De er jo så søte med veske og skateboard.

Så utrolig kjekt det må kunne være å kunne tegne. Jeg klarer jo knapt å tegne en strek jeg tjiihii!

Stor klem fra
