Welcome to the X-mas card factory

Have you finished all your X-mas cards yet? Well - I think I have......maybe.....
Here's the result from the X-mas card factory the last couple of days.

Cards made with stamps from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD).

Cards made with images from Belles'n Whistles.

Some cards with LOTVs images....

Two cards with images from InStyle Stamps

and then one with stamp from Whiff of Joy.

Hope you like them and yes - these were "quick cards".

Wishing you all a wonderful X-mas. Tomorrow it's hubby's b'day and then it's Christmas Eve - so no more time left for blogging. Will be checking in on you after X-mas!

Opening no 21 and it's Recipe day!

It's my time to open no 21 in our BnW Advent Calendar, but before doing so - I would like to say Happy b'day Mom! Yes - it's my Mother's b'day and we hope to be able to see her later today - if the roads are cleared from all the snow. 

To see my yummy recipe - pop over to our BnW blog and also enter for the chance to win in our Advent Calendar.

Here's my card that I hope will give you some last minute inspiration. I coloured little Peek-A-Boo Snowbaby with my copics.

DP from my local craft shop Pysselakuten. Added little stickle to give the card that extra spark and some flowers of course.

And what's for dessert? Well - pop over to our BnW blog and check it out.

You don't want to miss these 3 new cuties released over at SCACD today!
I could not decide what image to colour - so I coloured them all ;-)

I also decided to use only 1 DP and then make three cards with them.
So - I will not keep you long - since I'm sure you would like to pop over and get these cuties - but here you have my 3 cards.

First - Winter friends by Elisabeth Bell!

Guardian of Hearth and Home - by Carmen Medlin

The Yearling by Victoria Case

And here you have The Yearling in real life - my sister Cathrine when she visited Japan earlier this year.

Vintage X-mas

How are you all? Busy with the last minute X-mas shopping and preparations?
I've not even managed to mail my X-mas cards to friends and family - but hoping that I will be able to send them all by the end of this weekend. Sometimes you just would like to have a couple extra hours per day - right?

Well - here's a quick post from me today - reflecting a "Vintage X-mas card" that I made at our local scrapevent. The DP is from our local craft shop - Pysselakuten. I was so happy when I realized the match between the DP (see that cute little boy) and Mo's wonderful image: Nicholas Bearing Gifts.

I had to colour him in matching colours with my copics of course.  

Distressed the edges and added some pearls, flowers, leaves and a lace. The sentiment is sent to me by my supertalented friend Kathy!

Hope you like it!

Diapercake and some winter pics

Happy Sunday ladies!

Hope you are all doing fine. I must say that I'm totally busy at work and also with all the X-mas preparations. So unfortunately not too much time to craft or to visit your blogs. I'm really longing for the X-mas break (yes - I'm taking some days off from work to be able to play with Isac and hubby in the snow).

Well - as I promised you earlier - pics from our snowy Sweden. Well - these shots were taken some weeks ago and YES - we have received more snow since then. Let me put it like this - Isac's swing set as you can see in one of the pics - is now almost covered with snow..

I also managed to make my very first Diapercake for my sister-in-law Elena's little Olivia.


Tomorrow we celebrate Lucia here in Sweden - so we are going to see Isac and his friends singing all the Lucia songs for the parents and grandparents.

Kramis and hope you will have a wonderful week.

Sweet little one

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Here's a short post from me today - and for a change - no Winter card - but a cute little baby theme....  I coloured Rose Petal with my copics a long time ago - but I never got around to actually create a card with this cutie. I wanted it to be special....

So here you have it - a little baby card:

Added a few pearls and a ribbon - since I wanted the image and the DP to be in focus.

Also - have you seen the New Sew Easy Tools that Susana has in stock now. If not - make sure that you pop over - I'm sure that you are going to love them!
Wishing you all a wonderful day!
