I coloured Suzanne with my copics - and yes - gave her a new hair colour - hope you like it sweetie ;-). Used my DPs that I got in our local shop Pysselakuten. Wanted to make a rather clean layout (I'm really into that again - don't ask me why ;-)
Added the Mulberry flowers and some extra bling. Cut out the sentiment Retail Therapy - one with my SU circle punch and then added the Therapy part as a tag.
Of course I needed to add a little handbag charm to go with the card as well.
The original image has "Sale" as a text on the bag. Of course I needed to change this to SCACD - because that's where I think Suzanne is doing a lot of shopping and not only Suzanne *lol*.
So I hope you all like these new images that Susana is releasing today. So to help her with her celebration - please check out the rest of the DTs blogs and get inspired and then I hope you visit her wonderful shop and do some serious shopping. There's nothing better than Retail Therapy - or ???
Click on the pic and it will take you directly to Susana's store and yes - as you can see - Suzanne did some shopping over at SCACD ;-) Kramis - Anki

I think she is just adorbale - don't you! Again - went for a rather clean layout for the card, since I wanted Noelle to be in the center of it. Coloured her with my copics and added some stickles to highlight the snow.

Another quick posting from me today. We are trying to get everything organized in the house again. The bathroom is ALMOST ready - just missing a couple of tiny bits and parts - so it should be completed next week and YES - I got my new washing machine yesterday. My sweet Dad installed it for us! So today is laundry day!!! ;-)
Well -I wanted to show you this card that I made with the cute X-mas fairy Holly from Mo's digital pencil.
The DPs used is - yes you guessed it again - Eskimo Kisses. I really love them - so sorry if you will see them a lot on my cards from now on...hihi.......
Used my SU circle punches and my snowflake punch. Added the Snowflake with a little spacer in the center.
Hope you like it and I must say - it's always so nice to read your comments.
And just a little teaser for you Hänglar lovers out there - tomorrow I will be meeting them in person, since they are at a local scrapevent 1.5 hours drive from my home ;-)

* 150 g of butter (melt)
* 2 egg (whip together with the sugar until it's white)
* 1 1/2 dl sugar
* 3 dl flour
* 1 teaspoon of baking powder (mix with the flour)
Mix everything together.
Poor it in your baking tin.
* Peel 3 - 4 apples and cut them into pieces.
* Mix 2 teaspoons of cinnamon with 2 table spoons of sugar.
* Roll the apple pieces in the cinnamon/sugar mix.
Decorate the cake with the apple pieces as you see fit.
Bake the cake in the oven at 175 degrees C for approx 30-40 minutes.
You'll see when it's ready :-)
I made it in my roasting pan (that is as large as the size of the oven). Therefore I had to multiply the recipe x 2.
Cut the cake and then it's ready to be eaten just as it is, together with vanilla sauce or with icecream. Your choice. Hope you like it.

Wanted to use one of the very first stamps that I purchased from Susana. Well -I think actually he's responsible for our friendship ;-) He's called Snow Person and I think he is just adorable.
Coloured him with my copics and cut him out with my nesties. Then I added flower soft on bits and parts of the image and some stickles. Created a "snow charm" using my stickles. Used a flower wire to attach all the flower soft on and then attached the "snow charm" on that.
Distressed all of my Basic Grey Paper - and yes - I am really getting into that as well *lol*.
Hope you like it and would like to play with us. If so - please use the keyword "TIOT 37" when you upload your project on SCS or PCP.
Susana is celebrating her 1st year store anniversary. YEAH! Congratulations sweetie!Therefore she's having a release 2 Artists in 1 day. It's a Special Edition mini sets with new - totally adorable - Elisabeth Bell and Victoria Case images for SCACD. The release day is September 29th. There will be sneak peeks from Sept 26th - 28th with of course some yummy candy. Read all about it here.

Well - I have been using faux stiches on all my cards earlier, but now I had to buy a Janome mini sewing machine - could not say no anylonger *lol*. Isac and I will use it together - that's at least what I told hubby...hihi.... (I have a regular one, but that one is almost never used - sadly enough).
I wanted to colour our new stamps from our BnW Fall release this weekend. The first one that I fell in love with is Hearty Thanksgiving. Don't you think they are just adorable. I can really picture Isac and his little cousin Julia on a bench together like this one day.
We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Sweden, but I wish we could. It always seems like a wonderful and cosy family-get-together.
Coloured the image with my copics. I used the Eskimo Kisses Glazed Apple DP and then it was time to use my mini machine. I'm in love already ;-). I also used a tiny bit of the Eskimo Kisses Rooftop DP as well and my Martha Stewart heart lace punch - also another thing that I truly love. Added button and flowers.
Well - what do you think about my first "real stiches" card? I know that I will be doing this a lot more now.
Make sure that you check out what the rest of the DTs have been up to and hope that you want to play along. You find all the details for the challenge here.

Wish you a great Sunday and hope that you stay tuned - because a little bird told Rebecka that Susana soon is up for some more fun. Well - can't tell you what - so you better be following the store blog to make sure that you get the news first...hihi....

PS. Isac loved his visit yesterday to our local Fire Station ;-)

First of all - a huge thank you to all of you that joined us for the blog hop over at BnW yesterday. It was a lot of fun to read all your comments and of course - I will have the winner ready for you over at our BnW blog today!
Then I wanted to show you this card that I made with Nicholas from Mo's Digital Pencil. I think he is a cutie.
Coloured him with my copics and used yellow to go around him (inspired by my supertalented friend Tammi). I think the yellow really made the pic glow a little bit more - don't you?
I did not want to add too many embellies since I printed a rather large image. Used my brand new DPs from Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses Rooftop that I got in our local shop Pysselakuten. Added a few dew drops and the sentiment and ribbon from SU.
Well - that's all for now. We are off to the Fire Station - they are having an open house today and of course Isac would like to check the out their trucks :-)
Wish you all a wonderful Saturday!

This week Suzanne wants us to bring out our Scor-Pals. Well - I have to confess - I don't own one. However - that did not stop me from making this Triangular Fold Card. I made it with my Fiskars and that worked perfectly as well.
For those of you that want to know how this is made - well here's the link to Scor-Pal's site where you can follow the step-by-step instructions. However - I made a little different one - hope you like it.
I used Little Helper for my image. I have not had the chance to colour him for a while and I really wanted to. Coloured him and his little puppy with my copics. Then I used my Tim Holtz paper distresser around the image and also on each of the DPs. Chalked the edges with pine cone.
DPs are from Basic Grey. Added some Baubles and a ribbon. Sentiment from Aud Design saying Vänskap som värmer = Swedish for Warming friendship. Here's a pic of how the card look like open. Hope you liked it and that you want to participate. Make sure that you upload your card on SCS or PCP using the keyword "TIOT36".
Now - check out what my DT girlfriends have been up to and then start with your own amazing project.

Coloured them with my copics. I printed a rather large image and therefore I did not want to add too much blings or embellies.

Hope you all are having a great Wednesday. It's actually warm over here - not sure what's happening with the Fall season, but maybe we are getting Summer back *lol*. Well - I will not complain -the longer we can keep our Summer jackets on - the better ;-)
Just wanted to show you this card with the cute little Sisters. Aren't they sweet? I am actually the oldest one out of 4 sisters. Yes - My Dad is very well trained after having to be the only guy in a house full of 5 women (4 daughters and my Mom) ;-) However - he always say that it's been great - because his sons-in-law tend to be more eager to help - a son would maybe not have hesitated to say no...hihi..... Well - it's actually the other way around - my Dad is a big help to all of our families - since he is def. our handy-man! So from your daughters - We LOVE you dad!

Ready for another Try it out Tuesday challenge by our sweet Suzanne? Well - here you have a very nice sketch to follow. Suzanne - this one was so fun to work with - thank you sweetie!
I almost - note ALMOST...hihi.......followed the sketch.
The only thing that I turned was that I moved the Sentiment to the left corner instead of to the right.
I decided to colour up Autumn - since I can tell you - it's almost Autumn here in Sweden. At least - that's what it feels like. Coloured little Autumn with my copics. Cut her out with my nesties and added the Susanament. DPs from my local craft shop Pysselakuten. Ribbon from SU.
Used my SU punches to cut out the circles on the top. First I was thinking of adding just 3 Bella Baubles - but then I wanted to make something different. So I cut out the two circles and then a flower with my flower punch before adding the Baubles ;-)
I must say - I really, really like how this card turned out. Might be that I will keep this card for myself...hihi.....
Well - what are you waiting for - go ahead and start your project using this fab sketch from Suzanne. Also - make sure to check out the rest of the DTs work and as always - tag your project with "TIOT35" if you upload it on PCP or SCS.
Have a fab week my friends!

I coloured my sweet Miss Anya with my copics. Found my lavender cardstock (I know - it almost look black on this pic - but it's not - trust me..... and then light blue DP from SU. Got to use my Martha Stewart heart punch that I got from my sweet friend Marlene - thank you dear - loving it and you of course :-). Added cream and lavendel coloured roses.
Hope you like it. Also - please let us see your projects and make sure that you are using one of the stamps that Summer carries in her store. I guess you've seen that she soon will be carrying stamps from Bildmålarna (yes - they are Swedish ;-)Also - I hope that you are staying tune what's happening over at our BnW blog - don't want you to miss that part of the fun that Summer and the DT girls have in store for you ;-)
Kramis and hope your week will be great!
