It's the last day in May! Can't really believe it. It feels like it was yesterday when I was shoveling snow.....
But now I can't wait for the water to get a nice temperature (for us in Sweden - that would be somewhere between 18 - 22 C in the Water).

Today I want to show you a card that I made with the new stamp "Water Babies" illustrated by the supertalented Carmen Medlin.

And YES - the DP is Madeline again.....sorry - but I really, really love this DP.
Colouring: Copics
Sentiment: Rub-on from stash
Embellies: Just pearls - since I didn't want to cover the beautiful DP

Happy Mother's Day

to all Mother's in Sweden! Hope you've had a great day so far.
I sure have. We went to see the Swedish Airforce, but couldn't stay that long - due to rain, rain and rain..... So now I'm back indoors again and being pampered by the two men in my life - hubby and son.

Well - one day feeling like this little fairy "Fairy Good Rest" :-)

Colour: Copics
Embellies: Lace and pearls from my local craft shop, flowers from stash

Well - that's all from me - need to go and relax and enjoy some chocolate ;-)

Happy Friday to all of you!

Today I have a short post for you - showing 2 cards that I made for my beautiful niece Rebecka's confirmation that took place last weekend.

I got to use some of my very "old" stamps from WoJ - Dreamy Willow and Confirmand Melinda.

One of the gifts that we gave to Rebecka was this trendy and beautiful watch.
I purchased it from a local company called Prydligt. So for all of you that are looking for gifts for a graduate or so - check there web-site out - click HERE.

Hope you like it!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Du får mig att le - You make me smile

Hallo ladies!
How are you these days? Are you spending your days outdoors in the Nature?? I hope you are. The good thing with Sweden this time of year is that it's still light during the evenings. This really helps when getting a few crafting hours after a whole day outdoors.

Today I would like to show you "Siren's Call" - from the new SCACD release. Pretty - isn't she?

Colouring: Copics
DP: Madeline (yes - def. one of my favs :-)
Sentiment: Aud Design
Pearls: From Stash
Flowers: Prima

Looking fwd to hear from you.

Anything Goes

Monday again and it's time for another BnW Challenge - this time hosted by our sweet Iris.
The theme is "Anything goes" - so we're looking fwd to see you're creations. Remember -you need to use an Elisabeth Bell image - that's it!

I coloured Garden Friends with my copics.

DP from SU. Flowers and leaves from my stash. That's it - I think I'm going back to "less is more" when it comes to decorations of my cards - especially when I want the DP and the image to be in focus.

The Natural Beauty Collection Release

Welcome to the beautiful release of new images by Carmen Medlin for SCACD. She is a true artist!
One thing you need to know: With every Natural Beauty Collection (7 image) set purchased - Susana is
giving away for FREE 1 tooled rose's set from Prima (contains 9 roses - approx 1" each). Susana will pick the colour. This is valid for the 1st week of the release and the offer ends May 29th.

Before I show you my card - here's the blog hop order - just in case you get lost :-)

I got the honor to present Naturally Styled.
This really reminded me about the scene in Cinderella - where the birds and mice helps her to create her very new dress for the ball. Such a beautiful image. I wanted to use some of my new copics to match the beautiful DP. So here you have the final result:
Colouring: Copics
Embellies: Pearls and lace from my stash
Sentiment: From Aud Design

Looking fwd to hear your comments before you head over to SCACD to do some Spring shopping ;-)

Flowers for you

Happy Monday ladies!
How are you these days? Do you get a lot of crafting time or do you spend your time out in the garden?
I myself do get the time to craft - but that's in the very late evening when hubby and son are sleeping :-)

Today I would like to show you a card made with this cutie - Little Friend. I also wanted to create with colours that I normally use for Fall - but to see if they work for Spring as well. I actually think that they did ;-)
Love the DPs from SU - that makes this card feel warm and sunny - don't you agree??

Looking fwd to hear from you and also REMEMBER to join us for the BnW challenge.

What a beautiful day!

We're so enjoying the beautiful weather and nice temperatures that we have in Sweden now. Sunny and over 20C - just perfect!!! The only thing is that people are getting a little bit nervous - will there be enough Sunny days left for the "real" Summer period? You see - in Sweden we are really counting the days with sunshine and nice temperatures ;-)

Then I need to say - Happy Birthday to my sister Pernilla!

Well - over to something else that really warms my heart - and that's this cute, cute "Waiting For" stamp.
I decided however to turn the road into a beautiful river, since I thought that this cute girl was looking at the beautiful scenery outside her window.

Colouring: Copics
Flower lace - from my local craft shop - Pysselakuten
Pearls - from my stash

Hope you like it.

Happy  Tuesday ladies!

How did you like the new release of the "from the Vault" by Victoria? Aren't they supercute? I think so.
I must say - we have had wonderful temperature and weather in Sweden - between 18 - 20 C, but for a couple of days now - the temperature has been as low 2C in the morning and around 8 during the days. Today we got a mix of rain and snow.....brrrr....... So it's def. SPA-time and jump into a hot tub...

Well - here's a card by me showing you the Spa Time Fairy.
Colouring: Copics
DP: SU and Madeline
Lace: from my stash
Pearls: from my stash

Hope you like her and also make sure that you check out the other new goodies that Susana has in the store.
Just a few "hints":
