Peekaboo!



Ohhhh...when I first saw this image I didn´t think much of it but other than it´s a very cute Tilda ;) Then when I stamped her I thought she is my absolute fav from the lastest "Butterfly dreams" collection and now she´s right up there fighting amonst the others at the top of my a -list. Isn´t she beautiful?! She is simply adorable ;)

This is a birthdaycard for someone special. I´m pretty sure she checks in here with me every once in a while so I decided to add her name in alphabeth stickers firstly after I took the pictures ;)

Here in Sweden spring is truly in the air! YAY! I can hardly wait, I bought a new jacket some weeks ago and I think I can start wearing it pretty soon. We have had over 10 degrees celsius today and the lovely and by me very awaited sun has been beaming down from a clearblue sky :) And...wait for it.....No wind!! What?? Scania here in Sweden has to be the most windy place ever ;)
Other big things has happened today as well. Me and hubby bought ourselfs a new bed! Can´t wait for it to be delivered ;) We have such a hard bed right now my body is aching if I stay in it for too long ;) Or...maybe that´s a good thing...? No way! He,he,he

Thank you all so much for the amazing comments you left me on my previous posting :) It means so much!

Of course I added some stickles stardust to some parts of the image ;)

Happy Easter with little Tilda



Finally I´m back again :) And it feels so good!
Well, it feels like I haven´t crafted since like... forever but it has only been a week ;) I have had these periods with less or no mojo before but they have all lasted for less time than this one. And it´s been such a strange feeling. I really wanted to craft but my legs just wouldn´t carry me :o I tried everything: cleaning and organising my little space, take little walks by the table, forced my self to ink some images but they just didn´t seem to fit anywhere. And then yesterday it happened! I got the most beautiful card from my blogfriend Maritha, she had made me what she called a mojoback card :)

Big thanks Maritha! I love it! 

You know what? I still get amazed by the lovely and generous peeps that enjoys scrapbooking and cardmaking every single day. If it´s not a kind and loving comment left for me here it´s happy mail from all over the world and it makes me so happy! I have the bestest friends ♥ in you :)

Well enough said about my little off road trip ;)
I made this joy fold card yesterday :) I got the most amazing looking Maggie stamps from the new collection called "Butterfly dreams". Since Stämpelgården no longer exists I thought I´d order them from another country since the stamps always seem to be in stock a lot sooner then here in Sweden. Thought I´d try Bunny Zoe´s craft and it worked like a charm! They arrived in my mailbox early this week :) Superfast delivery!






I want to enter this joy fold card in the following challenges:
* Just Magnolia and hÄnglar : bingo challenge!


So choose 3 items that are in a straight line - horizontal, vertical or diagonal.
I´ve choosen GEMS - FLOWERS - RIBBON & LACE

* A spoon full of sugar: Ribbon, pearls/rhinestones and flowers

I hope you like my new card :)

I´m so exited and I feel like I´ve been waiting for this day to come since...forever ;)
Was so incredibly happy and honoured to recieve emails from both Kellie (owner and founder of TPS) and Kylie asking if I was interessted in guesting them in march. Eh..well..I have been curious about these stamps so it wasn´t a hard descision to make - at all. Took me about a second or two..He,he,he!

And now I´m not curious any more - now I´m in love! I have colored one of the beautiful Lil animals before but this is my first try with the Lil Lads. Such a dream to color :) And I´m so happy there´s an alternative out there with some attitude, they´re not just sweet. You can add these guys to a card for a teenager any day :)

My first image up for prewiev is named Lil Lad Eric. He is available here very soon, so is the sentiment that is part of a matching kit.
I wanted to add jeans to this card so it´s a "good" thing we have a little girl outgrowing all her clothes at the moment. ;) He,he,he!
Don´t forget to check out the Tickled pinks stamps blog and check out the amazing cards the ladies in the dt has made with the same image. They´re so cool!
And...pst...I know for a fact there´s a prize up for grabs to..;)
